Take My Wi-Fi, Please – ReadWrite
- I have never password protected my wi-fi. The range is so poor that
at best only my nearest neighbors could connect, and I am not even
sure if that is possible. It would not bother me if they did connect.

For the iPhone weenies. Some days I wished I had an iPhone instead of an Android because some stuff comes to market quicker for the iPhone. I’ll have to wait...
But this is pretty cool!

Consider the vi text editor. Like many editors used by computer programmers, it is overly complicated and hard to learn. When I was first forced to use it in a computer class in college, I hated it. Now I will use nothing else. Once I overcame the difficulty of learning it, I realized that it had many powerful features that I liked. However, a non-technical person would never even remotely need these features.
I feel a little bit the same way about being forced to use Windows 7. It is not a bad operating system, but it feels more complicated than it needs to be. Windows XP had a pleasant simplicity to it. However, I am starting to get used to Windows 7.
It concerns me that there so many different ways that you can get to your files and run programs in the Windows OS. For example, you could have a shortcut on your desktop, or you have something pinned to your task bar, or on the programs menu, or pinned to the start menu, or in a folder on the programs menu and there are other ways. There is no consistency there, and therefore I think that Apple had the right idea with IOS. It doesn’t have the same flexibility, but the simplicity of it means that almost anybody can use it without any training.

‘"Siri, drive me home."
Okay, so it's not quite that simple (yet) but Oxford University is testing out a driverless version of the Nissan Leaf electric car using technology controlled from an Apple iPad on the dashboard. The car is guided by a low-cost navigation system that gauges its surroundings through small cameras and lasers discreetly built into the body of the car and does not rely on GPS. The iPad flashes up a prompt offering the driver the option of taking over a portion of the route. Touching the screen can switch back to "auto drive" where the robot system takes over.
The system is currently being tested at Begbroke Science Park, near Oxford. The next stage of the research will work on enabling the new robotic system to understand complex traffic flows and to make decisions on the best routes to take, said Dr. Ingmar Posner, who is co-leading the project.
It's estimated that the current prototype navigation systems costs around 5,000 pounds (about $7,625 US) but, "Long-term, our goal is to produce a system costing around 100 (pounds) [$151 US]," said Professor Paul Newman, the other co-leader. A series of videos about the Robot Leaf is available below.’
