    Agreed; I can't see this going anywhere beyond being a gaming tool! Even then there are limitations, such as opponents having to inhabit an identical space; with a metaverse, the imagery of the gameboard space has to match the real one...

    I'm with mo; a teacher interacting with several pupils remotely, and the kids being able to hear each other, I have no trouble with, but all you need for that is video conferencing, which we already have! For the kids to be able to interact visually as well, with this proposal, well, they basically have to be in the same room as each other, to be able to point their head cams at each other, so where is the advantage?

    Just a mo, mo; wont the teacher be in a room with lots of camera equipped screens looking back at him? After all, each pupil can interact by sound (for general discussion, say) without needing to look at his "fellow" pupils? Many would consider that a positive advantage...

    Possible, certainly, but if you are interacting with, say, a sword fight adversary, wouldn't you have to be in an identical space? If one guy has to negotiate furniture that isn't in the other guy's space, it's a major disadvantage! Wait! I've got it! Just have them meet in the same gym with bamboo swords... The advantage of the technology is we can experience chopping other peoples heads off, without actually harming them, right?

  • Will Nokia Double Again? [View article]
    Good debate, guys; I can see merit in both positions; there is uncertainty in where Nokia is going, but it will be a managed activity, not a lucky dip!

    Now who's being "superstitious" dwd? Sure, graphene is a marvelous material if the reports are to be believed, but have you taken note of how it is extracted? I don't believe anyone's figured out how to manufacture it directly, as yet, and until then it's never going to be available in industrial quantities. It could end up as just another pipe dream...

    Spot on, Jb; the trouble with capitalism is that those who control the money forget that others deserve their fair share, but rarely get it!

    Yes, don't advertisers of different products have different seasons? Enough such variations, and it'll smooth out the overall trend, and FB supports so many different advertisers, it's got to be close to flat?

    This is because most european systems (the notable exception being the English Common Law that the US's system is based on) are focused on fairness and justice, which come a distant third behind supporting the legal professions, which is the priority in the "anglo" regions.

    Another thing, ben, is the body language thing, and what you think of as "social skills"; my kind don't look for hidden meanings in the uttering of others, as we tend to just say what we mean, without all those allusions and evasions which so many (especially women) deem essential. As such, we don't need to compensate with those pecking orders and artificial courtesies, which is what "social skill" really amounts to. This translates to you as a lack of "personality".
