AHAHHAHAHHAHA — that’s right by my house!
Microsoft recently patented a feature for GPS systems that allows pedestrians to choose a walking route that avoids crime-ridden and bad-weather areas and a bunch of folks are getting up in a huff about it because some jackass at CBS News Seattle dubbed it the “avoid ghetto” feature and now everybody thinks that’s what it’s called. You dummies.
More from a document filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office: “A route can be developed for a person taking into account factors that specifically affect a pedestrian,”such as being in an unsafe neighborhood or in an area subject to harsh temperatures.
“What is unclear, at least from my reading of the patent — which isn’t written by anything resembling a human hand or mind — is what kind of crime statistics the GPS might choose to use,” writes Chris Matyszczyk of CNET.
Granted it would be Microsoft’s responsibility to be diligent about the type of information they use to dub an area unsafe, but I really don’t this is that bad an idea. I’d probably walk eight extra blocks to avoid an area notorious for muggings. I bet if we nicknamed the thing “Batman’s Parents Memorial App” people wouldn’t be having such a f***ing problem with it!

Thanks to GW’s Lover, who — oh God please tell me I’m not a disappointment.

Battlefield 3: The Old “Jump Out Of Your Plane, Rocket Launch An Enemy’s, Then Get Back In Yours” Move
This is a video of a guy playing Battlefield 3 when he ejects out of his plane, rocket-launches an enemy jet, then gets back in his and flies off. “So just like the title said?” EXACTLY like the title said, except set to the A-Team theme song. You think anybody could actually do this in real life? “Absolutely not.” What if the pilot was wearing a jetpack? “No.” But what if it was Harry Potter? “I’m leaving.” But we haven’t even played footsie!
Hit the jump for the video, plus a longer one of dude doing it over and over and over again.
Is there any better way to ring in 2012 than to drop 129 bills on a shiny new wireless-enabled DVD burner? Absolutely. But if your New Year’s resolution includes archiving smartphone pics to optical media and steaming DVD flicks over WiFi, Samsung is prepared to make those nostalgic dreams a reality, with its SE-208BW Smart Media Hub. The premise here is quite familiar — little black box takes content from an attached storage device and streams it to connected devices over WiFi, or over the Web. Samsung’s twist on the traditional model brings optical media into the equation, however, with a CD/DVD burner enabling music and movie playback, along with remote file archival. You’ll need to wait until late January (or perhaps early February) before introducing Samsung’s shiny streamer to your wired or wireless network, but we got an early look at the new DLNA-enabled gadget today.
If you’ve used an external DVD burner made in the last decade, you’re already familiar with the form-factor employed here — there’s a slim disk tray up front, with full-size and mini USB connectors, Ethernet and a DC input on the rear. This is strictly a streaming device, so there’s no HDMI or other AV connectivity — you’ll need to use an Android, iOS or smart TV app, along with Samsung AllShare or an FTP client to access content. We tried steaming 720p video and a few photos using the Android app and the AllShare application included with most recent Samsung devices, and everything worked as expected, with content loading quickly without any hiccups.
You can access files on a connected HDD or USB flash drive remotely from the built-in FTP server, but you’ll need to use Samsung’s apps to stream DVDs and music CDs from that built-in optical drive, or to burn smartphone pics or other remote files to a blank disc. You can view content directly on your smartphone or tablet, or on a connected TV, using the former device to control playback. The hub also serves as an internet bridge, so you won’t lose web access when connected directly over WiFi. There’s nothing groundbreaking here, unless the absence of an optical drive has been keeping you from adding such a device to your collection, but jump past the break to see it in action.

Ever thought about upgrading your PC by breeding more cores? Or planting a few GBs of extra storage out in the yard? Us neither, until we heard that scientists at Imperial College in London have succeeded in building “some of the basic components of digital devices” out of genetically modified E.Coli. We’ve seen these germs exploited in a similar way before, but Imperial’s researchers claim they’re the first to make bacterial logic gates that can be fitted together to form more complex gates and potentially whole biological processors. Aside from our strange upgrade fantasies, such processors could one day be implanted into living bodies — to weed out cancer cells, clean arteries and deliver medication exactly where it’s needed. So much for Activia.
Question by Roley: if robots aren’t real then how do you explain people who have robotics degrees?
One of the two things does not add up. I know robots aren’t real so why are all the people earning degrees in robotics?
Is it a cover up for something?
Answer by David
Dude, robots are real, go onto YouTube and type in “Robot.”

Question by Kitty: Why when I listen to YouTube on iPad and then open a different tab?
Why when I listen to YouTube on iPad then I open a different tab, the YouTube pauses? How can I make it not pause while Im browsing the web with a different tab?
Answer by Luis
The iPad doesn’t have multitasking (yet). Multitasking will be released for the iPad by fall 2010

Following up on yesterday’s 20 Years of Linux, the Linux Foundation is releasing today an infographic highlighting some of the remarkable changes in Linux and the larger computer industry over the last twenty years. The Linux kernel had 250,000 lines of code in 1995, but had 14 million lines of code in 2010. Linux users are using it increasingly at home and at work today, rather than just at home for personal purposes.
LinuxCon is officially kicking off today, and I’ll be meeting with a number of folks from all around the Linux ecosystem, from Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst to Canonical’s Allison Randal to Nithya Ruff of Wind River Linux. If you’ve got any questions you’d like to see put to these folks, feel free to leave ‘em in the comments and I’ll see what I can do.
