Thursday trivia #28

  • The boys and I have had a grand time playing with the Kinect, even though we only have the included Kinect Adventures game. I think the real potential of the sensor is yet untapped but it will be fun to see how different game developers make use of it.
  • Speaking of Kinect: at Microsoft’s Lync launch yesterday they demonstrated using an Xbox with Kinect for video conferencing with a Windows PC running the Lync client. I can’t wait to get this operational, especially if it means we can put an Xbox in the control room in our Pensacola facility.
  • And speaking of Pensacola: I continue to be impressed by the young sailors I get to teach. Your Navy is in good hands.

  • And speaking of hands: I am not a fan of the TSA’s new groping procedures, nor their porn-o-scope scanners. I think this guy had the right idea, as does this one. It interests me to no end that flights entering the US– you know, like the ones the underwear and shoe bombers took– don’t have these screenings. Shouldn’t we be focusing on the most likely threat sources?
  • And speaking of focus: I saw the Samsung Focus at the Pensacola AT&T store, and I quite liked it. I am waiting for a review unit to give it a more in-depth test, but it certainly looks promising so far.
  • And speaking of so far: I am so far from being ready to run my Thanksgiving-day race that it’s not even funny. I seem to have developed a hacking cough over the last two days that has kept me off the streets; I’m hoping it gets better soon.
  • And, finally, speaking of soon: thanks to all who wished me a happy birthday! I won’t soon forget!
