Oculus VR - where's the strap on smartphone?

Seriously, Why can't I slip my super resolution smartphone into a heads up display, one with an eye divider to split the screen into two parts, one for each eye and then have some game present a 3D images straight into my eyes? You could even use the camera, poking out the back, as a hand signal, Kinect type controller. 

The smartphone has accelerometers built in, tilt and velocity to help navigate the game. I could bob my head up and down like I'm walking, or quicken the nod into a run. When I turn my head the accelerometers will spin the game through its scenery. I mean, this seems doable with off the shelf tech right now. Want a bigger screen? Use a tablet or mini-tab. they're nearly light enough to strap to a helmet type getup.

Are there 3D dual view games on these phones yet?

How to disrupt TV

Apple wants in on TV. Google does too. Netflix and HBO are both doing their own things and the cable providers, namely Comcast and TimeWarner are nearly (or will be soon) a monopoly on signal delivery.

How to bust this thing up?

Kickstarter for Pilots

You want to help sponsor, and yes, invest, in the next Game of Thrones or Walking Dead? Start a website that allows you to watch pilots and invest in them. Youtube has these "Tubers" who earn hundreds of thousands of ad dollars a year. And for what? Producing nearly useless content that has the barest entertainment value. 

Why not build a site that collects pilot shows in a venue that lets you vote and invest in their next episode(s). But not just that. For every dollar invested Apple will invest 10 times that much. And then have first dibs on airing the new shows and episodes on their OWN channels. Yes, Apple should just get into the business of content production using their $100+ Billion as a funding source.

3/4s of a decision is living with it afterwards

Making a choice is easy. Living with that choice is hard. But living with it is easier if you've gathered as much information about your choices prior to the decision. Making an informed decision will help you live with yourself later when, or if, your choice turns out not to be the most optimal.

Due diligence is a must.

I would like to have a thesaurus in my head.

Of all the capabilities I would most like to be endowed with it is the ability to choose the precise word for a specific passage. There is always the perfect word that should be used when writing. I ache for the ability to discover that word through any means possible. One technique that would be integral in the writing process would be to have a thesaurus embedded in my head. 

The English language's vastness overwhelms me. When I write I always have three or more pages open to www.thesaurus.com. I want the capabilities of that site instantly available to my conscious thought. "Words like spontaneous...."

Noah - a story of the future

I haven't seen any references yet to the fact that Noah, Russell Crowe's and Jennifer Connelly's epic story of the first, (last) mariner is actually a story of future earth. There were numerous references to an earth that is yet to be, large steel pipe complexes, welding helmets, sheets of corrugated roofing, flashes of soldiers throughout the ages. 

I wonder how many people will pick up on that.

The net is a callous place

Imagine spending a month frequenting a community locale, every day, maybe 3 or 4 times a day, and then just one day - you don't show up. 

Do you think you'd be missed? Probably. But on the net you can participate in some collection of discussions for months with some social network community forum and then - just stop. And you'll never be missed. The online world just doesn't care if you show up or not.

If fact, and I've written about this before, when you die, the net will never know it. Your email, in all of your accounts, will just pile up forever. Your comment history will live on, but no one will ever care that you are no longer posting. It's rather like we're social zombies and when we notice that Bob no longer writes comments, we just shrug our collective zombie shoulders and shuffle on.

What an empty place the web really is.

Is it? I am not sure the internet as we know it, is long term viable. Is there a better way? If so, will the bulk of people move to the new universe and leave this one behind. hum...

Yeah, it's snowing in your computer. Oregonian snow in fact.
