Google's 'Project Glass' Teases Augmented Reality Glasses
A concept video, titled "One day...," shows how Google's glasses might work. In the video, the user performs tasks commonly handled by smartphones, such as scheduling meetings, taking pictures, checking the weather, getting directions, and placing a video call. The information simply hovers in the user's field of view, and the interface is controlled by voice or other inputs.

All of a sudden I want to start using cash again. I hate cash, dammit. And here I thought I had some sophisticated ideas on things in general, but clearly I don't know fuckall. Just goes to show there's always someone smarter than you.
How Target Figured Out A Teen Girl Was Pregnant Before Her Father Did
Target, for example, has figured out how to data-mine its way into your womb, to figure out whether you have a baby on the way long before you need to start buying diapers.
The above article is kind of a quick summary of this source article:
How Companies Learn Your Secrets
Andrew Pole had just started working as a statistician for Target in 2002, when two colleagues from the marketing department stopped by his desk to ask an odd question: ?If we wanted to figure out if a customer is pregnant, even if she didn't want us to know, can you do that?"

Most of you guys already know I don't have any trouble with celebrating the death of a foe. In fact, I have to admit I'm a little jealous I didn't get to be the guy to do it. It does open ones eyes to hypocrisy though when you see the little church-goers dancing in the streets over a good old-fashioned assassination. I wonder how many hits a video of Osama's brains spilled out all over the desert sand would get on youtube, or worse, how many thumbs-up. But god-fucking-forbid we run a few million volts through a child rapist or pity-evoking mass murderer. That would be just wrong or some shit...
Who says we aren't in the revenge business? I am actually more disgusted by torture at Guantanamo than just killing the little bastards. Death has a dignity all its own (believe it or not, Metallica didn't come up with this little gem first), and a man can kill an enemy and be called a hero. An inquisitor is a demon, no matter what good is wrought from his work.
I don't know if this is pie, but you have to admit the sweet taste of revenge

My XBox 360 backlog has 20 "must play" games on it, of which at least a half dozen are open-world sandbox types, and 20 "kind of must play" games, including another half dozen open-worlders. Time, Dr. Freeman?
Ramen is so, so awesome.
"Haters gonna hate." Can someone tell me what this actually means?
It is so pathetic when an old fart like me can out-drink the 20-something at the bar after class and recover better the next day as well. Kids today!
Octomom PornoPosted by voltaic on Monday September 20, 2010 @ 07:33am

Normally I don't give two shits about celebrity news, as it is largely gossip and vicarious idiocy. However, I don't mind following celebrity news when it involves porn. This morning, the radio jocks was talking about how Vivid Entertainment has offered "Octomom" Nadya Suleman enough money to pay off her house if she would do a porno movie with them, something around $500K. Now the first thing in my mind is "hell no, that chick is not looking good!"
I was wrong. I wouldn't mind taking care of that porno style (aka no "talking" afterwards, etc):

So on the 10th I'm going to LA to see "The Fempire Strikes Back: A Galactic Burlesque Parody"
Hot chicks in star wars costumes, performing burlesque.
The show they did earlier in the year was pretty damn awesome, so I suggest if you like burlesque and star wars, you check it out. And if it's anything like last time, drinking with the chicks after the show is also good fun.
