Microsoft’s Kinect Already Hacked!

Is it silly that Microsoft spends so much time and money chasing the goal of preventing their hardware (and/or software) from being hacked?  If you build it, someone will hack it.  It’s pretty much a fact this day and age.  I think it’s time to embrace it.  As a matter of fact, wouldn’t this HELP push the product?  More people will buy it because you can do much more with it than with the limited functionality that is shipped with the product!

Can Wozniak Make a Cup of Coffee?

I came across a short clip of Steve Wozniak at Fast Company talking about how intelligent computers are getting and how much they can teach and influence from an early age these days.  But there are still strides to take in getting computers to fully interact with and understand humans and the aspects of our environment and lives that are interpreted through sensory perception and experience in life.

This clip is nothing mind-blowing and doesn’t talk about anything specific.  It just reflects on where the internet and computers have brought us and poses the question of how long will it be before computers can really interact with humans and fully understand its surroundings.
