"it is hard to properly evaluate the way people interact with computers since questioning them at the time is distracting and asking questions later may not produce reliable answers." Microsoft wants to employ electroencephalograms (EEGs) to read electrical signals within the brain and has devised a method "of filtering EEG data in such a way that it separates useful cognitive information from the not-so-useful non-cognitive stuff." Considering all of the potential things one could be doing with one's PC... they may not like what they see inside of every ones head!
I like your thinking guys! And apparently so does the media "The amount of interest in our plea has been fantastic, and has allowed a devastating event to have a silver lining with the good wishes of people far and wide. Thank you."

As a side, I've been planning a family trip to Disney and have been contemplating the purchase of a new camera. The decision process has been complicated by the fact that I can't decide on still or video... I realize that most stills take video and vice versa. One of the video cameras that I've been eying is the Sanyo Xacti and now Om has made the choice even more complicated. The video displayed in his post was created with the Xacti and is a bit grainy, the light is obviously dim and that would help explain it but it's got me questioning the quality. Then again if it's good enough for Om Malik... Anyone have any experience with the Xacti? I'd love to get your comments!
Update: InfoWorld is reporting a contrary story saying "Internet users in Beijing and Shanghai said attempts to access Google and other search engines were successful Friday, despite claims on a U.S. blog that traffic to these sites was redirected to Chinese search engine Baidu.com."

“If I don't do it, and somebody else does it, people will be misguided,” Vadim Sloutsky of torontovka.com, said.
“It forces me as a business owner to go out and book that domain and pay that additional money for that domain name.”
Failing to secure his domain name with Russian Cyrillic letters would open the door for squatters to set up a competing site that could leach traffic from his site. It's always been a bit like the wild west out there, looks like another gold rush might be looming.
