  • 10. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER IF YOU LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES

    @Bass: I would be all for a clinic that has no insurance company involved and I promise not to sue.  No lawyers and no insurance companies.  Yeah sometimes the doctor messes up but the alternative of litigation does not solve anything.  You die or you get messed up.  Money wont fix it anyway.   No doctor is perfect.  Health insurance and litigation is the real problem in USA.  Also, giving free expensive healthcare to everyone without fixing costs is a major problem.  I also noticed a lot of companies charging more for health insurance policies if you make more money.  This is just plain wrong.

  • Microsoft Watch

    Watch is sold out.   Looks like Microsoft has a hit.   Looks like next year is Microsoft's year and Apple takes a back seat.   Short Apple stock and buy Microsoft.

  • Microsoft & Oracle dragged into epic developer wage fixing conspiracy lawsuit

    @ScanIAm: Not to mention they have a staff of attorneys and deep pockets and you would have to fork up a lot of money to hire an attorney who would suck your wallet dry to defend yourself.  Legal system is for the wealthy.

    Since they make it out for health,  why not a simple blood alcohol test?  Diabetic blood sugar test would also be helpful for many.  These could be little add on options.  Also, make it contain a quick lookup for your medical parameters like blood type, chronic conditions, next of kin to call in an emergency.  For aging adults a feature of " I have fallen and cant get up" with a gps location.  Lots of stuff to be added.   An insect repellant (sends out sound waves which insects do not like) would be nice when walking in the woods.   Also, when in NYC it would be nice to have a needle with a potent chemical that would freeze a mugger attempting to rob you.   Then I would pay 500 bucks for it. 

    Also, if it could talk to my car and garage door opener (learn the codes like my car does) so I don't have to mess with keys. (it has a microphone so it would recognize my voice and open when I say "open the damn garage door ") .  

    A quick button that would ring my cellphone to get me out of a meeting or boring conversation would be nice also. (without offending the parties involved.)

    No blood pressure check?  No NFC to unlock doors and checkout at store?   Needs more work.

  • Android 5.0 announced

    Microsoft is at 10 so it should be twice as good as Android.  Google needs to have the same technology as Microsoft where you write to Java/C# and it compiles to native optimized code.

    What we need is another level of abstraction.  You know some kind of container application that can run on all 3 watches and you develop your code to run in this container.   Every problem is solved with indirection and abstraction.  I am being sarcastic but here we go again.

    Maybe this is a job for Xamarin.

  • Finally -- my tech prediction has come true ...

    @RealBboy360: No but I can reach over 2 feet,  pick up the remote, and then it goes there.   I do work up a sweat doing it so I can see the big benefit here.  :P

  • Telerik being sold to progress software

    Vesuvius is all doom and gloom lately.  I don't think UI is going away but those companies did peek out and the market saturated.

  • Finally -- my tech prediction has come true ...

    I have always been able to pull up tv guide on phone, tablet , or laptop even with the tv off.
