GM and Segway reveal new two-wheeled geekmobile

GM and Segway unveil new two-wheeled urban vehicle

The companies announced Tuesday that they are working together to develop a two-wheeled, two-seat electric vehicle designed to be a fast, safe, inexpensive and clean alternative to traditional cars and trucks for cities across the world.

The Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility, or PUMA, project also would involve a vast communications network that would allow vehicles to interact with each other, regulate the flow of traffic and prevent crashes from happening.

. . .

The 300-pound prototype runs on a lithium-ion battery and uses Segway's characteristic two-wheel balancing technology, along with dual electric motors. It's designed to reach speeds of up to 35 miles-per-hour and can run 35 miles on a single charge.

Robot child learns social skills

P11-090406-72.jpg Taipei Times - archives
A bald, child-like creature dangles its legs from a chair as its shoulders rise and fall with rhythmic breathing and its black eyes follow movements across the room. It’s not human — but it is paying attention. Below the soft silicon skin of one of Japan’s most sophisticated robots, processors record and evaluate information. The 130cm humanoid is designed to learn just like a human infant. The creators of the Child-robot with Biomimetic Body, or CB2, say it’s slowly developing social skills by interacting with humans and watching their facial expressions, mimicking a mother-baby relationship. “Babies and infants have very, very limited programs. But they have room to learn more,” said Osaka University professor Minoru Asada, as his team’s 33kg invention kept its eyes glued to him. The team is trying to teach the pint-sized android to think like a baby who evaluates its mother’s countless facial expressions and “clusters” them into basic categories, such as happiness and sadness.

Wrong Tomorrow -- A system for holding pundits accountable

Wrong Tomorrow - pundits vs. time

Pundits are all the time--every day--making predictions. And they are virtually never held accountable for their mistakes. This leads to a state wherein everyone is credible and every voice has authority. Now if er were discussing cake recipes or lego construction this would be fine, but when it affects something as vital as our economy, wars, or politics it becomes a different matter.

Wrong Tomorrow attempts to log what predictions and promises pundits make so they can be evaluated and we can learn who is trustworthy and who is full of crap.

Also of note is that every WoW forum post is now bookended with highly florid prose, like "Drops of dew glistened off Threefitty's bare shoulders in the moonlight, which stood in sharp contrast to the evidence of fresh bite marks."

Google's Android a Windows killer?

Microsoft allies seeking to undermine Windows in Netbooks, mobile | The Open Road - CNET News
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Hewlett-Packard and other personal computer manufacturers are testing Google Android for Netbooks and other mobile PC devices in a bid to boost margins that otherwise get consumed by Windows license fees. These PC manufacturers are seeking to have more control and money in the growing mobile computing market. While Microsoft has been dismissive of Linux in this and other consumer markets, it may have met its match in Google Android. There are two reasons. First, as ComputerWorld suggests, Google's brand might be enough to carry Linux in the PC market. Consumers know Google. They might not proactively seek out a Linux PC, but a Google PC...? Feasible. Second, Google can afford to seriously undercut Microsoft's Windows pricing, because Google doesn't charge for Android.
