It's nothing new. They could strap on a Google Street View Camera and then enter it into evidence. It has nothing to do with a Fitbit. Anyway, keep on slobbering, I love it, and the comments are always great.
There's no science in this article. First, the standard cheapo fitbit doesn't store much. It goes into the application on your phone. Second, everything is now encrypted, so Google can't reveal it under court order. And nobody can force you to reveal your pass code. This case just has the woman wearing a monitor for a few weeks voluntarily. Just like a heart monitor. It'll be thrown out of court because who wouldn't be a couch potato for money?
A long while back, you could only get library ebooks with DE1. That only worked on Win. and not my cheap Linux ereader. I found a simple Python script that extracted the key from the win program and put everything in plain epub. Obviously there was screaming from the publishers. They wanted more devices, so they went the way of online games, where they assure the publishers that there are living, breathing people using it the way they should. The next step is to monitor heart rate and breathing. :) I don't use any of this now, and read prodigiously, using other methods. :)
Re: Too late
Regarding Uberx being banned, won't Europe have to go totally Poutine to stop it? At the core, it is informal ride sharing, which gov't has encouraged. Now they'll need Uber-trap cars, and sexy Uber-cops to suck people in. Tourists will be horrified when the Uber-arrests start.
Re: Too late
I was there one day, and we had an earthquake! My son, though, goes to Stanford, and lives there. No hope for him.
You forgot their rocket ship!
Your wild animations never stop, making it impossible to actually read this article. You're going the way of Yahoo, and I might have to take you off my reading list. I'm sorry.
Cornering the talent
MS did this years ago, and now Google is following their book. The talent pool is limited, and those who can corner it, have a natural monopoly.
No room in the brain
I don't think our corporate IT people (outsourced) could do anything innovative.
Google not that bad
I'm in real need of old journal results, so I can continue with open projects such as my blog and wikipedia. The publishers just want to hold on this stuff that has almost no value to them. They don't even know what they have! That's why they can't produce a list.
This 'pay wall' serves the established interests very well. So Google makes money cracking this wall, and puts up stuff about you. My stuff changes by the day, since I consider the whole Internet a big Second Life game. I'm more concerned about all the sleazy companies who let their databases get cracked.
