Oh it could be so much better than just trying to reach the restart buttons. Imagine what happens when malware bricks your prosthetic memory drive and you can no longer remember people's birthdays etc.
I have taken it all off. Would you like to join me? Loosen those straps and let it all slip onto the floor. You might feel naked and not a little bit exposed but no one is watching, I assure you. No really, now that you have removed your wearable tech, this will be the first time for ages that your every move is not being …
Starcrash - now that looks like a great movie - did they every do a follow up?
Just looking on IMDB for the original - this was listed - "Escape from Galaxy 3" AKA Starcrash 2
Not heard of either film, so can't comment on IMDB's accuracy!
Duct tape actually makes for a terrible gag. It's pretty much impossible to silence someone in such a way they won't be able to work it loose in short order.
I bow to your superior expertise (or inferior brand of duct tape). May I enquire as to its origin, or would that get the police involved?
but you forgot you may need gloves to pick up the micro SIM style card that pops back out :)
If you push too hard you will need a friend to retrieve it from even darker recesses that you pushed it into, possibly with pliers.
I am also unhappy with surgical upgrade cycles of software and hardware. This does not sound like a good idea. although possibly better than imagining Alistair wearing 18 strap ons...
"anti-ageing cream that is so effective"
E45 and other creams (many prescribed)) investigated by BBC and report on R4 and 5Live Extra. I was listening to the horror stories just before lunch. They are causing many deaths a year as they are too flammable. People have died from lighting a fag. Or burnt to death in bed, because the bedding is contaminated.
So there are worse things than wearables. I saw a photo and review of the Hushme on a UK paper website, I think it might be a great present for some press secretaries. Perhaps with a tube of super glue packaged as "anti-ageing" cream
In itself creams like E45 are decidely safe when it comes to flinging matches at them. However once the water and other compounds have evaporated or otherwise left, what's left is rather more flammable. It's still very unlikely to be any cause for problems on skin, however when these paraffin oils are rubbed off onto fabrics, which have a large surface area due to the fibres and oxygen gaps in between, the situation is rather different.
My wife is deaf and has a BAHA (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) "installed"*. Looks like a press stud behind her ear, that is screwed into the skull, and the aid is clipped onto it. You have been warned if you Google it....
Anyway, at the consultation with the surgeon I was given a "look", as I expressed concern about if they were going to change the connector. Why not? Apple do it!
* Couldn't think of a better way of describing it! Implanted?
Every time I go up the stairs, I hear lasers being fired at me from behind - I've been living in fear for some months now. The psychotropic drugs have helped a bit, but they have some pretty strong side effects,
Thanks Dabbsy, a few weeks weaning myself off the meds and I'll be good as new. Though possibly not as fit...
Alien: cos they're the ones with the most advanced laser guns
You need to go back and watch Johnny Mnemonic again. You know, the documentary on what happens with surgically-implanted digital enhancements ?
It's not pretty, and you end up needing Keeanu Reeves to save the world. I'll give the whole thing a pass.
I watched that video and though, no fucking way, who would want that crock of sh....
Then I realised that I sit in an office with seven other people. We're all often on the phone discussing quite sensitive information, and often it's hard to concentrate when everyone's chattering away.
This actually, is a pretty good idea for certain office environments. My wife is a lawyer and often deals with high profile, confidential business mergers, etc. She'd look like a fucking idiot, but no chance of being overheard.
Call me amusingly quaint , if you will, but what about their having individual offices if they deal with sensitive information that others in teh same company musn't hear? It involves having those old-fashioned dividery-things, I believe they were called 'walls' with 'doors' in them to section of bits of the workforce from other bits of the workforce.
In the original Star Wars films, when they used models for everything, they got around this by filming the explosions from underneath the model so it appeared that the debris went evenly in all directions. Or so it appeared.
Then, of course, their space had sound which to some extent ruined this sterling effort.
The author is wishing for the exact tech as detailed in "The Bequaeathal-Godsent" novel – even including the 'brain salad' reference. Should've posted the link to the book, really:
It's a recent British SF work, reading like a treasure trove of ideas on future tech and ai.
