I think the main reason for pushing for mass flu immunization isn't that it's necessary or useful in any given year, but that we need the machinery of mass flu immunization in place so that when we have a year where there is another spanish flu, we... [more]

The right answer to this is just to make yourself hungry. Eat a very early dinner (like, say before 5pm). Don't eat before you go to bed. You will definitely be hungry when you wake up.... [more]

The "holographic processing unit" sounds like marketing nonsense and is probably just an NVidia or ATI GPU. No, I don't think that's the case. There is more to this than projecting an image on a screen. It appears to be using... [more]

I've actually used the Oculus DK2 and it's beyond impressive, though I don't think it will be a big mainstream success in its current state. It's too heavy and the graphics aren't quite high resolution enough, but those are both solvable problems.... [more]
