    I’m sure Apple will make a proximity app soon to fix that!

    Seriously, I’ve been in multiple buildings with glass walls where there never was a problem like this for 40 years and then recently people were walking into them. It must be the fault of the younger generation. I’m mean, those walls never walk into people, right??

    I've seen a similar problem back in the early 90s. Borland has built a new office building and it had a gym with glass walls. People were walking into these daily.

    Confession:

    I walked into the glass door of a shoe store in a shopping mall in Kolkata. The store employees were all over offered me medical help etc.

    To make a long story short, I walked out of there, with bruises on my nose, and a pair of overpriced heels.

    Anyone remember US Robotics? This was about 20 years ago. I was involved in the building of one of their facilities here, and they had the same problem, people constantly walking into the glass, sometimes really hard. A couple of times so hard I was surprised the glass didn't break. They finally put a decorative tape on the glass and it stopped.

    Oh yeah, US Robotics. They built Bicentennial Man! Actually, I got a kick out of that, in the movie.

    I used their dial-up modems when I got my first (Windows 95) PC.

    Yes, before they were purchased by 3Com

    I've been buying their modems all the way up to 33.6K. I don't recall what the reason was that I switched to Siig for the 56K, but it could have been the acquisition as that happened at right about the same time. Of course once I switched to DSL in 1999 or 2000 I haven't looked back at the dial-up :)

    What was good about US Robotics modems is they were hardware modems, rather than software modems, Hardware modems didn't use as many computer resources as a software modem would.

    They were also good at holding the signal and advertised bitrate. My SiiG would often drop something.
