MPAA may let Megaupload users retrieve non-copyrighted files, does it for the Armed Forces

MPAA may let Megaupload users retrieve noncopyrighted content, does it for US Military's men and women

Megaupload’s still immersed in hot water, but there are signs the legal temperature could be cooling… slightly. Don’t breathe a sigh of relief just yet though, as a significant portion of that confiscated cache of cloud-stored files remains somewhat indefinitely under lock and key. A minor reprieve may be on the way, however, owing to a much more “sympathetic” MPAA which has asked the court to consider releasing non-illegally obtained content to previous users. And lest your evil eye be trained too heavily upon the Hollywood group behind the shutdown, the association’s made it quite clear that, under the site’s TOS, users were never guaranteed continued access to uploaded content anyway.

The change of heart comes in response to a motion filed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, on behalf of a member of the U.S. military, petitioning the return of personal, non-IP infringing files. According to the now-defunct site’s founder Kim Dotcom, that group of “legitimate” users comprised nearly 16,000 accounts utilized primarily to share photos and video with far away family and friends. Of course, should this retrieval request be granted, a requisite procedure will need to be put in place to filter out copyrighted media — a system that’s sure to pose countless headaches for those involved. Nothing’s yet been decided so, for now, the fate of your lost files rests firmly in the court’s hands. Such are the perils of the cloud.

Does the Kinect sensor record at all times if your xbox is on?

Question by : Does the Kinect sensor record at all times if your xbox is on?
I was looking at the code of conduct and it says no nudity or whatever through the Kinect which I understand. But does it record when you are on the dashboard and your Kinect is plugged in?
Because when I was getting dressed ( really early a few weeks ago ) I forgot it was plugged in and I turned it on…Was worrying if it records or I could get banned for that…

Question by : Does the Motorola Xoom have Adobe and internet on the go?

Answer by Crim Liar
All the common Adobe web helpers are available for Android 3.x tablets. As for “internet on the go”, yes you can get a version of the Zoom that has 3G built in. I’d visit a bricks and mortar outlet to have a play with the various tablets, the Xoom is nice but there are even nicer tablets!

Dell Finally Does An All-In-One PC Right (By Cloning The iMac)

xpsone27

Dell has sold various all-in-one computers for years. These systems were mostly insipid, humdrum computers not fit for anything other than being a family’s portal to Facebook. Even with touchscreens, Dell’s all-in-one systems failed to be serious contenders in the space.

Enter the XPS One 27. Announced today and detailed by Engadget, this all-in-one-system is a clone of the iMac. Even the 2560 x 1440 screen resolution is the same. To Dell’s credit, the XPS One 27 ships with Intel’s latest generation of processors while the Apple iMac is still stuck with the older chips — something Apple will no doubt address in the next revision. But it’s hard to ignore the similarities. Hell, even the computer’s support tower has a large hole for cable management a la iMac.

The XPS One 27 is powered by an Ivy Bridge Core i5 or i7 CPU with either an integrated Intel GPU or a 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT640M dedicated graphics card. With prices starting at $ 1,399, systems can be configured with up to 16GB of memory and with a 1TB, 2TB or 32GB SSD hard drive. The backside houses four USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports along with HDMI, VGA, and a gigabit Ethernet connection. There’s a slot-loading Blu-ray drive and an optional TV tuner. In all, the XPS One 27 is a fine all-in-one computer with enough power to justify a spot on even an engineer’s desk — too bad Dell didn’t have the design know-how to make an original casing though.

Dell has seemingly given up. At this point in Dell’s anemic life they are just keeping up with Joneses. There was a time when Dell was one of the trusted consumer brands. The firm has never been a design leader with systems more utilitarian than beautiful, but that formula doesn’t work in today’s marketplace. But over the years Dell has managed to release systems like the Adamo XPS and to a less extent, the Dell Streak, that showed the computer company had a bit of life left in its corporate tubes. The XPS One 27 shows the opposite. Dell might be dead.

Lenovo gets it right time and time again. The Chinese PC company consistently releases computers with new designs in novel form factors. Look at the Lenovo all-in-one lineup: Not a single model looks like an iMac while still offering serious computing power. This design-first strategy seems to be working as Lenovo as profits are soaringsomething Dell cannot brag about.

There have long been whispers that Dell is looking to exit the consumer business. That division is leading Dell’s losses anyway. And consumers will not miss Dell if the company turns to simply releasing clones of iconic products.

How long does it take to get a PhD in Robotics?

Question by : How long does it take to get a PhD in Robotics?

Best answer:

Answer by neniaf
A Ph.D. takes a minimum of four years beyond the bachelor’s degree. However, since at least half of that time is spent working on your dissertation, the time can end up being very flexible. If the research doesn’t work out as you had planned, or your advisor is not as available as you had hoped, it can take quite a bit longer. Six years or so seems to be the average in many fields.

Question by : how much does a xbox 360 kinect sensor cost?
i will buy a kinect sensor for my xbox 360 (from somewhere close like walmart or gamestop) but i searched there sites for them and it costs $ 99.99 at gamestop and $ 149.00 i cant go past $ 50.00 so tell me where i can buy them or give me a link to a cheap one at gamestop or walmart

Best answer:

Answer by SteveO
The Kinect sensor costs $ 150 new, and I doubt you’ll find one in working condition for around $ 50. The $ 100 at Gamestop is the used price, so you won’t get much lower than that anywhere else.

Steve Ballmer’s Windows 8 rig measures 80 inches, so… does that do anything for ya?

Steve Ballmer's Windows 8 rig measures 80 inches, so... does that do anything for ya?

To all the executives out there, consider what you have hanging on the walls of your office. Perhaps it’s a fine work of art — maybe even an original — but it most certainly isn’t an 80-inch Windows 8 computer. That curious distinction belongs to Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, who has eschewed use of his phone, notepad and a more practical email solution in the name of awesomeness (or, perhaps compensation for those lagging Windows Phone sales.) Initially said to be a machine that’d be marketed and sold by Microsoft, the company has since clarified that no such effort will take place — although the door remains open for independent vendors to step in and sell similar behemoth Windows 8 setups. Unlike most tablets, we’ve a hard time imagining ol’ Steve throwing this one under his arm as he scoots out of the office… but then again, the man can afford some mighty good chiropractors.

Ben Heck’s Android-controlled pot-stirrer does (most of) the cooking for you

Ben Heck's Android-controlled pot-stirrer does (most of) the cooking for you

Ben Heck is always thinking up gadgets that make life easier, from completely hands-free luggage to a sensor system for improved cycling safety. His latest mod is meant for those of us who have burnt Ramen a few too many times. His so-called Ben-Stur Remote Control Android app works with a pot-stirring device, freeing users to stray from the kitchen while their meal is cooking. The app works via Bluetooth, and the pot-stirrer consists of an actuator arm, a chip clip, a timing belt and, of course, a wooden spoon. Heck used a Google ADK and an Arduino Uno for the control mechanism that communicates between the app and the stirrer. In the tablet app, users can check their food’s temperature and control the speed of the the spoon’s stirring. If that whets your appetite, click the source link for more info — and check out our Maker Faire interview with Mr. Heckendorn himself.

Why does my iPhone 3G crash ONLY during the evening and night hours?

Question by : Why does my iPhone 3G crash ONLY during the evening and night hours?
Apple has replaced my phone twice since October 2010. I can be on a long call during the day and afternoon and no issues will come up but once it gets around the evening and late hours of the day my iPhone 3G will crash so often…ONLY at night…..I don’t understand!!!! I’ve restored it so many times. I also have the current iTunes version.

Best answer:

Answer by Kaitlyn McPartlin
Well, what do you expect from any Crapple product. That’s all they ever do is crash and malfunction. This is your third iPhone. What does that tell you about the quality of their products. They are nothing but brand hype and media propaganda that Steve Jobs is cramming down everyone’s throats. He is dying of pancreatic cancer, and he wants to squeeze the last dollars out of everyone before he goes, as if he can take any of it with him.

Answer by Lucky
You shouldn’t have any problems. At worst if it doesn’t work fully right off the bat, you may have to log into the router and set up “port forwarding”. There are many easy to follow tutorials on how to do this, just google “port forwarding router xbox 360″
