Finally, A Practical Use for the Kinect

{0 Comments}

Finally! I no longer have to do all that heavy pushing in a supermarket, or even the daunting task of remembering my shopping list. Snarky comments aside this is pretty cool. Obviously this is very early in the development process but hopefully something will come from these experiments. I wonder how it would do with two people around…and who it would follow..and if the Kinect would be able to remember which person it was supposed to follow…and if the Kinect can feel love. At least the Kinect is finally being put to use. Alex, you say you can play vid-e-o game-s with this thing? I don’t know how much I believe that, that’s some imagination you got on you, kid!

Microsoft Follows Suit

{0 Comments}

Much like Sony and EA did, Microsoft has updated their Terms of Service with the launch of their new Dashboard. The new TOS has users give up the right to pursue, or join, a class action lawsuit against the company for any reason. This terrible practice buried within dozens of pages of sleep inducing text has been the latest trend with bigger corporations who assume people will not read what they are agreeing to in order to continue enjoying their products. Check out this story on giantbomb.com for a template there which you can mail to Microsoft which will let you opt out of their clause which has you opt out of class action lawsuits. You can also go over to http://www.gamersoptout.com/, but they appear to be down at the moment.
