it was decided that it wasn't worth the effort, you can blame the dragons for that one
Not sure what could be done to eradicate the need for a tooth cleaning implement.
well this is t-t-teeth WHIIITENING.
is still a toothbrush. i'm not denying the need for clean teeth though
Voice recognition would be nicer.
why are you such a useless overhyped piece of shit?
Can you imagine having to read out everything you wanted to post on DiS? I see those iphone adverts where the friendless applegeeks ask their phones what the time is and I shudder.

Surely I should be able to eliminate my morning commute by sending myself across London via my mobile phone network or something.
Have you not seen The Fly...?
We should have wireless electricity?
And somewhere on the internet there's a beatiful design for USB ports in place of standard plug sockets, but I don't feel like googling.
and card payments that show up immediately (what the fuck is the point in having banking apps on your phone if the information is usually three days out of date ffs!)
it's much easier/cheaper if companies claim on authorisations in bulk. + a company accidentally triple charging you for example would create a much bigger mess (in terms of bank charges if it put you overdrawn, getting the money back & what not) just keep an eye on your Available balance and you should be okay.
but in this day and age, it should be possible. There must be 'alternatives', as the OP put it.
are a thing
same day payments between companies
not only printers themselves but the whole idea of having to have bits of paper. like boarding passes or tickets.
the technology is here ffs I shouldn't have to print anything
but, yeah, it's taking too long
for example, if i want to get a bus and i have no money on me i have to find an atm and then purchase something from a shop so that i have change so that the bus driver doesn't want to kill me or flat out refuses to let me board. fuck that shit man.
their horrible attitude to notes is terrible too, especially seeming how expensive it is these days. Pack o'cunts
The fare was £2.30 and the bus driver was refusing to let me on because I didn't have the right change. I made a right scene and had a massive go at him (it was late and I had just been asleep on another bus so I was cranky) but he wouldn't give in. Eventually I just told him to keep the change and called him a prick. He then called me back to the front of the bus and gave me the change out of his own money.
I felt really bad, not his fault they're not given any float.
But still, for fucks sake.
All the bus drivers hated me. Gave one of the bus drivers about 50p in change thinking it was more and the look he gave me still haunts me.
when is that happening
surely it wouldn't be hard to make a bar at least, 1500-2000 calories, 100g protein, carbs etc etc with a multivitamin in it and something synthetic that keeps you satiated. nasa and the military probably already have this don't they
Eating is clearly and definitively one of the greatest pleasures of being alive. What a horrible and laughable notion.
Then everybody's happy.
to gain access to some websites, to stop computers and spam and stuff.
Surely a computer could be invented to outsmart another computer, so I don't have to squint at the stupid letters and decide whether that shape is a P or a K?
I want Aqualung, goddammit
us. Just not sure what its an alternative to yet...
If that year isn't in the future I don't know what is
Must be a better way of dealing with this than letting babies shit themselves and then having to clean it up and repeat the process for umpteen months.
by also eliminating the human race. That would probably solve a lot of problems come to think of it.
also surely we don't need wires or cables anymore. I remember when everyone was saying that there wouldn't be a need with Bluetooth
(as are many of his other essays)
Frighteningly ambitious startup ideas:
something about batteries seems really primitive too
no way, i still feel like they are amazing. cool little electric boxes that you can take about and put in things. every time i change batteries in something i feel like i'm in a film defusing a bomb or doing some other sort of important task on which the whole mission depends
As opposed to a lack of jobs for me
like, money can buy you all sorts of cool things. you can get expensive cars or much nicer hotel rooms. but if you want to go to australia or california or whatever, you still have to sit on a plane for hours and hours. you can't do much about time
money is resources.
resources are time.
you can put the things on your watch list without going into the item. a little check box thing
i'm sure some of them could be made into works of cinematic genius if i could remember them.
rather than straight to the auditory nerve. I read something a few years back saying Sony were developing this. A Walkman that plugged straight into your auditory nerve, thus skipping the ear part. Imagine - it would be totally perfect "sound".
