MEET XBOX ONE
Microsoft has unveiled the future of their next generation of in home entertainment. The Xbox One will deliver a new all-in-one entertainment experience for gamers.
You’ll be able to switch between live tv, games, movies, music and more without having to switch inputs with a remote. You can instantly switch back and forth through your options using a new “Snap” mode that’s uses both gestures and voice commands anchored by a new Kinect sensor.
You can multitask with multiple apps at the same time like playing a game or watching a movie and surf the internet or take a Skype call with friends. It’s impressive technology they are presenting here but I personally have to wait to try it out myself.
I really like how a lot of sensible implementations have been made like the live tv switching and powering on the system by voice commands. Stay tuned for more details on the specs for the Xbox One as we get more information. Xbox One is slated to release later this year!
How many tears did The Doctor cry?
Was it enough to fill two Ponds?
“It is true that I am only a young girl, and do not know the ways of war. Explain to me how you propose to defeat ten thousand Unsullied with your five hundred. Innocent as I am, these odds seem poor to me.”
There was a major tornado today in Moore, Oklahoma. There have been many deaths in this poor town, including 24 children. These children are under the age of ten years old. My heart goes out to every single person who was hurt by this travesty and I wish you all the best of luck. While I really can’t do much for you guys, I’m praying. I’m terribly sorry.
Why is there very little utility to women’s clothing? Why don’t we get pockets which actually open? Why do we have to put up with the ‘false pockets’ that are frequently sewn onto women’s jackets and pants to give visual interest without ruining the ‘line’ of the garment? Why, when pockets are actually present, are they so rarely large, stable, or loose enough to accommodate a phone or a wallet? And why, given this is the case, do women go on to cop so much flack for carrying handbags around with them?
Oh wait. Is this one of those double standards which we feminists are always going on about; one of those innocuous little things which everybody just accepts because it is the norm?
Women carry handbags. It is known.
But why? I have watched my male friends get ready to go out. They slip their wallet into one pocket, their keys into another, their phone into a third pocket, and some of them even still have spare pockets large enough to carry a novel for the journey. Those of my friends who wear women’s clothes, though, face an entirely different situation. If they are wearing the right jeans or jacket, they may have up to two usable pockets (not at all guaranteed). However, in most cases they won’t have any pockets at all. Utility and style rarely meet in women’s fashion, so they grab a bag.
Contrary to all the jokes, most women don’t ‘have’ to leave the house with everything they pack in their day-to-day handbag. Most of the items in a woman’s everyday handbag are in there because, if she’s going to have to carry it anyway, she might as well make it worth her while. Excuse us for making use of the one useful item we find in our wardrobes."
Oh lord, don’t get me started on this. This is a little thing that highlights a big equality problem between men and women. We need the same supplies as men to do the same job. When I stocked shelves it was impossible to find pants that would hold my wallet, my box knife, my badge, my keys, my gloves (I worked dairy/frozen) and my phone. I actually ended up not carrying my wallet or keys at all. Fuck if I’m carrying a purse *ever* but that certainly wouldn’t have helped on the job.
My husband? He holds all of that plus his insulin, packets of honey in case his blood sugar drops (or a vial of glucose tablets), glucometer, headphones, markers, and pencils. With plenty of room to spare. I’ve even seen him slip paperback books into empty pockets.
I remember watching I think it was Project Runway and the contestants had to design a new uniform for female postal workers. The one designer put utilitarian pockets on her design, and the judges yelled at her for it. They said something about it not being flattering, because you know, the key part of any uniform is not that it works for the job, but that it shows off your body in the best light possible.
