    Looks like a head-ach. I could of made 5 cups of tea in that time without the annoying voice nagging me. Also I see enough advertisements as it is already thankyou.

    It`s closer than you think.

    Also, if the ads helped pay for the apartment, people might be able to live with them.

    Well, augmented reality is pretty darn close, thanks to the nice people at DARPA developing interfaces and people like AR making software. but it wont pixelate and be so crap, and it wont use Microsoft Martha, it`ll use a more modern voice simulation software

    20 years? More like 5-10, all this tech already exists, it`s just not marketable yet.

    real reality is perfectly fine with me...this is just something that will drive anxiety levels through the roof.

    I want a peaceful view...I will go out to one and enoy it.

    The ads will never help pay for the apartment. The ads will "help" pay for the increased bandwidth you need to overcome the bandwidth used by the same ads.

    Looking up how to make tea made it look like it`s for special people. Specially cause it`s two bloody things and one was on the way.

    "I know I need hot water to make tea, but what else, I`m missing something, better goggle it."

    Reminds me of SNL sketch of Celerity Jeopardy,
    "Daily Double, Here`s your clue, This tea is HOT HOT HOT, now all you have to say is whether the tea is hot or cold."

    Needs to be:
    - Less choppy.
    - Less adverts.
    - None of the weird fuzziness that was probably added in to remind us that this is augmented reality.

    Oh god, I hope so. There isn`t NEARLY enough ads about these days. And people need to be dumbed down even further, by reliance on gratuitous electrical crap. Yeah, that`s what we need. Fingers crossed!

    If you want to get rid of the ads, you gotta register and pay the license fee. That`s if you use Microsoft Live Explorer (not compatible with AdBlock Plus).

    There needs to be movement to only buy from companies that don`t take out ads. If you see their ad, they get boycotted.

    The first thing i do when i get that will be to install adblock plus. Otherwise that would be a nightmare.
