Re: Popdose Conceptual Theater: The Sun Also Rises

Thanks Jack! I never thought "Absinthe Party at the Fly Honey Warehouse" could connect with something so literally.

Stay tuned - repost coming in two weeks.

This was incredibly helpful, and I'm very appreciative. Well done!




Re: SwiftKey comes to your car, thanks to Clarion AX1

Remember those public service announcements featuring teens who lost friends/family due to texting-while-driving accidents? Yeah, Swiftkey and Clarion just spit in their faces.




Re: Popdose Conceptual Theater: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Fri, 13 Dec 2013 20:07:53 -0000

My favorites this time: the sequence in the forest - Forest -> Spiders -> Secret Place. But all that's second to Diary of a Young Man; that one fits perfectly.

Oh, there's a spotify link too: http://open.spotify.com/use...




Re: Popdose Conceptual Theater: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 15:14:08 -0000

I love this whole tape like you wouldn't believe, but my personal favorites are:
1. "Next Train" - the line about "...girls in Wisconsin telling their boyfriends about me..." connects brilliantly with Harry's instant fame/notoriety among his classmates.
2. "Clever Girls..." - just a magnificent anthem for Hermione.
3. "Chemistry" - I mean come on.




Re: The Popdose Interview: Susanna Hoffs

I adore Susanna Hoffs and I will ALWAYS regret not using my first round pick on her: http://kissingsuzykolber.up...

Thanks! I can't wait to start sharing Jack's Harry Potter mixes - I really love them and hope you guys will too.




Re: National Transportation Safety Board hold briefing on their investigation on deadly BART accident | abc7news.com

Well said. I'm really amazed (and saddened, since I knew Chris and Larry personally, and though the world of both of them) that a non-service train was sent through at auto speed.

For touch-typing on a tablet, try ASETNIOP instead - it's faster (100 wpm) and doesn't require the computer to make so many decisions on your behalf: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Re: CSR's 0.5mm-thin wireless touch surface extends the touch interface of mobile devices and PCs

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 14:47:56 -0000

This would be a great platform for ASETNIOP - it's a keyboard replacement that allows for touch-typing at speeds exceeding 100 wpm using just ten input points.

Re: World’s thinnest wireless keyboard also acts as a large flexible touch surface

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 14:45:11 -0000

This would be a great platform for ASETNIOP - it's a keyboard replacement that allows for touch-typing (at speeds exceeding 100 wpm) using just ten input points. You could add the CSR sheet to the front part of a tablet cover and turn any tablet into a fully functional laptop.

Just wanted to pop in and mention that with practice, cruising (sustained) speeds of 70 wpm and top speeds of over 100 wpm are possible with ASETNIOP. Here's a demo of 109 wpm: https://www.youtube.com/wat...

If you haven't tried DexType yet (it's free as a Chrome extension), you should.




Re: Greenwald Will ‘Write Much More Aggressively’ Following Partner’s Detention

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 19:33:54 -0000

It's a shame that so many of the folks here are treating them as though they are.




Re: Greenwald Will ‘Write Much More Aggressively’ Following Partner’s Detention

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 19:23:45 -0000

I don't have a well-formed or well-informed opinion about what the British authorities could or should do under the law, but what they *shouldn't* do is shriek "TERRORIST" and detain him in a punitive fashion (and don't try to tell me that holding him for the maximum amount of time under the law and releasing him without charges isn't punitive) and take his stuff. If Miranda is engaged in espionage, fine, react accordingly. But you can't use "terrorism" as a catch-all for "activity we don't approve of" or even "activity that's illegal."

Again, it's really distressing to me to see people dismissing this because they don't like Greenwald or don't think he's taking this personally - I guarantee if something like this happened to any of us we'd each take it very personally. It's abuse of power, plain and simple, and it's not something that should be dismissed lightly.




Re: Greenwald Will ‘Write Much More Aggressively’ Following Partner’s Detention

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 18:58:49 -0000

But it's horseshit that they would detain him under a terrorism law; this has nothing to do with terrorism at any level. It's about espionage.




Re: Greenwald Will ‘Write Much More Aggressively’ Following Partner’s Detention

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 18:54:25 -0000

I'd suggest that you try to think of someone you happen to know who is friends with someone who has been arrested for drug possession, and then imagine the cops using that as a pretext to come and confiscate YOUR lawfully owned firearms.




Re: Greenwald Will ‘Write Much More Aggressively’ Following Partner’s Detention

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 18:47:30 -0000

Fair enough. It just kills me that so many people are content to just ignore this story and its implications. It's this bizarro version of "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it" rewritten as "I disapprove of you personally, thus I am completely unconcerned by your treatment at the hands of authorities whose actions I would otherwise find completely indefensible."




Re: Greenwald Will ‘Write Much More Aggressively’ Following Partner’s Detention

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 18:34:56 -0000

I'm truly amazed by the indifference that people are showing towards this story. But I guess they're comfortable living in a world where the authorities can cry "terrorism" and detain anyone (Miranda) simply based on his association with someone (Greenwald) simply based on that second party's association with a criminal (Snowden), and confiscate his personal property? What's to stop them from detaining YOU based on a two-degree separation from a criminal and taking YOUR stuff?




Re: A Week With: Leap Motion Controller

Give DexType a try for web surfing - the mouse clicks are a lot more precise than with Touchless, and it works as a keyboard too!




Re: LEAP Motion Typing Teaser

Mon, 05 Aug 2013 10:58:47 -0000

Thanks for posting this! This application eventually morphed into DexType - it's currently available for free at the Chrome Web Store. I'm working on a new video; I'll submit it as soon as it's ready.
