    Microsoft Patents the Holodeck

    From Ars Technica:

    A newly published patent shows Microsoft potentially planning to take console gaming beyond the barriers of the TV screen by projecting a "peripheral image" around a room, providing a 360-degree view of a virtual scene.


    Elections are no longer a useful agent of change. Our politicians are
    corrupt because they are elected by a corrupt culture. Change the culture.

    This probably stems from Apples recently successful lawsuit against Samsung for patent infringement of their very vague patent on a rectangle with round edges. Now everyone is going to start putting in vague patents.
