Comment Re:Teens shouldn't have access to guns... (Score 1) 452

That doesn't necessarily reply to my comment though. My point was about purposefully planning/executing mass killings by car vs. by gun. I am certain some crazies will try and do it, but the majority won't when they can simply use a gun.

Mind you, I didn't mention removing guns from the majority as I honestly don't know if this would solve the problem. It might or might not, I really don't know, but I do know that something, somewhere has got to give.

It's funny you should say that, since the entire point of LTE is that it is a Long-Term Evolution platform. It isn't that the "standard was set too high" - it's more that the standard was designed to support high speeds so the wheel would not have to be re-invented as technology progressed.

You can either create a new set of supporting standards and technologies every few years, or you can develop a set of standards that scales up as hardware allows better speeds. So it's only if one entirely misunderstands the purpose of LTE, that the standard would appear to be set too high. The gradual progression that Samsung demonstrates in the article is what LTE-Advanced was all about and is still firmly in 4G territory. 5G is just horrible marketing.

Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.
