Transcription Services


Does anyone know of any good transcription services that are quick

Different actions on multiple data types

I have a list containing two types of data elements (say A & B). Some
actions (say 1 & 2) can be performed on Type A only, some (say 3 & 4) on
Type B only and some (say 5 & 6) on both Type A & Type B. What would be the
best UI to display these interactions? It would be awkward if only the
allowed actions are enabled based on the items selected. Its not possible to
separate the two types of data elements.

Brainwaves as Input Method

A convincing twin of Darth Vader stalks the beige cubicles of a
Silicon Valley office, complete with ominous black mask, cape and
light saber. But this is no chintzy Halloween costume. It's a
prototype, years in the making, of a toy that incorporates brain wave-
reading technology.

Behind the mask is a sensor that touches the user's forehead and
reads the brain's electrical signals, then sends them to a wireless
receiver inside the saber, which lights up when the user is
