What would you do if you were to grow an extra limb? Embrace the oddity as well as advantage of it all, of course! Jason Barnes from Atlanta who had his right arm amputated from below the elbow two years back was on the receiving end of a robotic prosthetic arm, thanks to a certain Profession Weinberg, where this particular robotic arm is capable of manipulating a pair of drumsticks. The first stick will be controlled with electrical signals emitted from his upper arm muscles, while the other stick can tune in to the music being played, where it will then have an algorithm that helps it improvise on its very own beat. Not quite General Grievous in the Star Wars universe, but we’re on our way there.
When John Grant’s mother, Anthea, breathed her last without having written down her Apple ID as well as password somewhere, who would have thought that it would amount to a rather grievous matter. She had bequeathed her iPad to her family, but due to the fact that they do not have her Apple ID and password, they are unable to work with the iPad. In short, the Apple tablet has become something of a huge paperweight. The late Anthea’s family even went all the way to provide Apple with her death certificate, will and solicitor’s letter, but Apple made life difficult for them, citing that one more thing was required – a court order in order to prove that she was the owner of the iPad when she was still alive. Ridiculous, don’t you think so?
