    money for weapons,money for plague, money for poisons, no money for all those missing limbs? If no one cares about the landmined children etc. how about for “your own” soldiers?

    Lets chop some limbs of some of the people running things and see if priorities change. Dibs on the fat, scowling bald guy.

    OKAY guys and gals. Howz about you start printing the names of organizations or ideas in full instead of acronyms. I for one would be interested to know what DRM or DARPA or any of the myriad acronyms represent. Call me uncool but then again, there’s no such thing as cool, only fashion.

    I’ll never understand why people complain about “insufficient detail” or explanation in a blog post. How hard is it to hop over to Google and look an acronym up if you don’t recognize it? I don’t think that “uncool” is the word I would use to describe it, though . . .

    you’re reading boingboing and you don’t know what DRM means?

    How long before folks who have two functional arms decide to lop one off in order to get the iArm?

    Seriously. If Dean Kamen makes this arm in just a few short years, and it seems nothing less than miraculous… well, in ten years the feature set will be even sweeter.

    “…and we want you to make it so that if a soldier has his arm blown off we can replace it and get him right back in the front line…”

    @Ployntabs: You’re on the internet. Do what I do if I don’t know what something is. Look it up.
