Mini-Me, stop humping the 'L-A-S-E-R': New 3D tech can make a Mini-You


Re: Is it just me...

I can absolutely guarantee you that as soon as this technology is Kiosk sized there will be one of these in every shopping mall in the Western world. Esp UK and USA.

Portraiture was incredibly popular in the early years of photography and though I can't be bothered to do the calculations I'd be willing to bet that £100-£200 isn't far off the adjusted mark or lower.

People will be getting little family sets of themselves and their kids for the mantle piece / coffee table. The family pet. Esp Dog. This is going to go ballistic. I'll take a £100 bet from anyone who thinks otherwise.

Doesn't this hypothesis fall down in the fact that Fogel has diplomatic immunity?

Making sense of SharePoint 2010

Thumb Up

Nice Summary

I've been working with SP for a few years now and this is one of the better 5 minute summaries I've read.

SharePoint does suffer from neither being fish nor fowl. Its a bit of everything without the full function of anything (without a lot of custom work). But if you go into it with your eyes open and don't over pay for it the ROI is pretty good.

The only thing I would add to the article is that Remote Blob Storage (available from SQL express upwards) goes some way to removing that 10GB limit. Use with caution, technical and functional constraints do apply.
