Pretty much the same story about release as before but with a March 2019 publication date. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/netflix-inks-deals-three-japanese-anime-production-houses-1193998 I don't mind the retelling so much. Since a lot of them are (pseudo) reboots of the story they are telli...

One of the best business web sites on the web is BOB http://www.forumtopics.com/busobj/index.php It's a highly customized phpBB 2 site. Internally it diverged from original recipe phpBB a long time ago in significant ways. phpBB is far from dead. I'd just call it a mature technology these days. I to...

I wonder if they'll update it with all the (semi) autonomous vehicles that even civilians have these days.

I just read a great article about a Nobel prize winning approach to nuking cancer. Lemme see if I can find the story I've also got a friend that has MGUS (the precursor to multiple myeloma) so I'll let him know about the clinical trial (is there room for more people?) Found it: https://www.wired.com...

I'm not allowed on Facebook. I categorically vote against that option. I think the forum archives provide a wealth of data that I mine whenever I send someone new to watch a video about GitS or drag them over to my place to read or watch GitS. So please don't lose that. A newer PHPBB or other forum ...

There's even a meta analysis for the whole show as a genre!

That's really cool! Down in the comments someone has posted the video with audio and later there is a 12 minute video of game play (different game platform?)

There's another angle to look at here. Since both the Major and Batou have synthetic bodies they don't have all those hormones running around that are commanding them to "get busy" like all us meat sacks. Further, the Major was cyberized at such a young age that she's almost a Joan of Arc ...

Season 1, episode 14: ¥€$

I was re watching ¥€$ and at the very end you see Togusa at home - his wife explains she made ¥100,000 while day trading and turns off the computer. A moment later it turns itself back on and the trading program reactivates and a trade is entered. I can't read the text, but it looks like a trade of ...

Hooray! An excuse to re-watch e07 - Idolator - A revolutionary leader, Marcelo Jarti, has been replaced by an android with his ghost dubbed into it. He gets into a fist fight with the major. He's not a heavy load out guy and not technically a cyborg since there's no meat in there. e10 - Jungle Cruis...

Micromachines need micro computers to control them

https://techxplore.com/news/2018-06-world-smallest.html IBM's announcement that they had produced the world's smallest computer back in March raised a few eyebrows at the University of Michigan, home of the previous champion of tiny computing. Now, the Michigan team has gone even smaller, with a dev...
