This is interesting, but ignore the title. In the article it says
"Spontaneous choice to lie more or less can be influenced by brain stimulation"

and

"Results showed that the eight volunteers who had their left DPC stimulated lied more often, while the ones with the right DPC stimulated were more likely to tell the truth, researchers said."

So, the magnetic fields make it more or less likely to lie if you are choosing whether or not to lie while the magnetic field is being applied. The worries in comments about police being able to use this are rather unlikely, as if you come to the police prepared to lie it won't change anything.

Oh, and plus the study was only done on 16 subjects and doesn't appear to be done by very reputable researchers.

Despite the nasty comments by many in the slashdot crowd, I think this is pretty cool. And he's planning to trying to make it run on one ATX power supply, maybe trying water cooling, and doing any other improvements people suggest that he likes.

Yeah... would be awesome if this happened.
- Google CEO: "I need a phone, can someone buy me a Motorola?"
- Few hours later: "Done".
- "Great, which model?"
- "Model …?"

Well, the games look pretty nice. However, it looks like anyone in any of my circles can see my high scores for games? Not that it is really a privacy issue, but might be a good idea to let us choose which circles can see our high scores. (Thinking of angry birds, where it shows you scores of other people at the end of each level) If this doesn't happen, the high score list for everyone will have a TON of people.

Can someone point me to an explanation of how google could be in trouble for preventing smartphone vendors from using competing services? I mean, it is their operating system. Apple isn't getting in trouble for blocking things off their products.

Ah, the silliness of interpreting laws. Here's my take on it:
"To me, the wording "Teachers also cannot have a nonwork-related website that allows exclusive access with a current or former student. " would mean that they cannot set up their own private web site that allows them to privately communicate with a current or former student, NOT that they can't use an existing website (i.e. facebook) to communicate. The "have a non-work related website" part would, with my definition of "have", mean that they own and/or manage the site. The exclusive part would mean that no one else can see the communications. So as long as 1. They don't own the site and/or 2. Someone else besides them and the student(say, the school admins) can access the communications then there should be no issue."

So, as far as I can tell, the blogger is wrong about their conclusions.

No idea whether this site or its research is reputable, but I could definitely see this being true.
