Bluetooth Smart Jewelry?

Having some financial interest in this, I hope it does well. I'm sure it's useful for some folks (and I know a few!).

I suppose if your mobile phone is not on your person while at home, then this might be helpful. Perhaps more useful is if my TV is trying to receive a Skype call in the other room, and telling my phone to tell my pendant to tell my earrings. I can just imagine a new The One Ronnie skit (he of the "My Blackberry is not Working" http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CDIQtwIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DkAG39jKi0lI&ei=t73KUqutCMPy7Ab65ICIDQ&usg=AFQjCNEEVTi1cqZLYqRICe3oXMiNYGbMGg&sig2=Wc9juWVOMqSQFvRV8GzJFg&bvm=bv.58187178,d.ZGU).

But given the limited range of BT, especially indoors, the next room is about all it's good for. The back yard is probably out of bounds.

Eventually we'll get to something with an "air" interface, so we don't need an input device, and display is whatever's handy. But do you want your virtual life to be so visible to everyone in your physical one?

I'd go for a weekly episode showcasing a new SF universe each time.
 
I would love to see what Joss would do with a Muppet movie.

Home Counties?

When will people realize that using the term "Home Counties" alienates everyone who doesn't live there?

Like there aren't enough divisions between North and South, England, Wales, Scotland, both Irelands, and other left-outs like Isle of Man or Guernsey or the Orkneys. Don't forget Posh and not-Posh, rich and poor (not the same thing), and the profusion of accents and the ever present "I can guess your regional accent in 3 words".

The Lawyer's Line

Good quote, c/o Paul Krugman's blog:

As the old lawyer’s line says, if the facts are on your side, pound the facts; if the law is on your side, pound the law; if neither are on your side, pound the table.

In honor of the Sochi Olympics we give you the event commonly known as "Child Tossing".

This is an almost perfectly executed toss but because the child missed the landing pad we had to give it an 8.15. Oftentimes a more rotund tosser is utilized for this event, but these athletes are clearly amateurs so no deduction was given for the lack of girth and resulting smaller vertical trajectory. See you in Sochi everyone!
