Sir Patrick Stewart

Congratulations to Sir Patrick Stewart! :)

Firefox QuickFind and GMail - How do I type an apostrophe?

Sometimes, you'll be trying to type an email to someone and as soon as you type an apostrophe, a QuickFind bar pops up at the bottom of the screen.  Annoyed, you close it, click into your email and try again with the same result.  Really annoyed, you cancel your email and try again with the same result.  Rather than closing your browser, here's a simple and quick fix....

Click on the maximize button twice. It is the middle one in the top-right corner of your window.

Done. Fixed. Now get back to your email.

Announcing EEG access for independent developers & researchers

Time for me to upgrade :)

We are very pleased to announce that EEG access will be released to independent developers and researchers (individuals, companies or incorporated entities that had a turnover less than US$100,000 in their last fiscal year) who are creating free and commercial applications for the Emotiv EPOC that will be distributed exclusively through our online application store.

A Research Edition SDK including full EEG access will be soon be announced at $750 (includes SDK, TestBench and SDK headset).

As you are an early supporter of Emotiv and an early licensee, we wish to offer you the opportunity to upgrade your existing software license to the Research Edition for $150 ($100 discount) from the published price.

This offer ends 15 January 2010.

We look forward to working with you to further the field of BCI.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Holiday Season.

From all of us at Emotiv.
