I must *really* not be a car guy, but I just don't understand the appeal of engine noise. I hear an ICS engine roaring and all I can think is "That ancient technology is really struggling with its task."
Elon did an AMA on reddit last week. Someone asked what software SpaceX uses for their rocket simulations, and Elon responded: "Kerbal!"
You are right on most things, however this put up a red flag for me:
"Then I'd spend the rest on awesome stuff."
Keep this in mind: Poor people spend their money on consumables. Middle income people spend their money on liabilities they think are assets. Rich people spend their money on assets that make them money.
Most "Awesome things", like cars, boats, electronics, etc, lose value pretty fast (Sorry if I'm putting words in your mouth, those were the first things that came to mind when I read "awesome stuff"). Eventually, you'll lose all your money. If I won 200 Million, I'd probably spend a tiny portion of it on buying nice houses for myself and my family, and use the rest to buy things like boring stock in boring companies. Boring, but secure companies that have been around for a hundred years and have offered dividends for decades.
The ruling, signed by the judges unanimously, would see Sandra freed from captivity and transferred to a nature sanctuary in Brazil after a court recognized the primate as a "non-human person" which has some basic human rights. The Buenos Aires zoo has 10 working days to seek an appeal."

What your describing is more akin to a "virtual intelligence." Basically, a computer that's smart enough to have human reasoning. It would be like the star trek computer. You could tell it something like "Find me 100 different pictures of cats" and it would be able to do it as easily as a human could. (Ordinarily, getting a computer to perform such a task would be excruciatingly difficult and prone to false positives)
A true AI would be more akin to Data from Star Trek. It would have all the capabilities of a VI (virtual intelligence), but also have the self awareness, sentience, and desire for self-preservation that a human would.
"A speed of 800Gbps would equate to downloading 33 HD films — in a single second."
At Verizon's cost of 15 dollars per 1 GB (when you go over your data plan), 5G could then theoretically cost you 1500 dollars per second.
Supercollide'er? I barely know 'er!
Yeah, I have childhood memories of watching the Discovery/Learning channel, and seeing so many documentaries and things about technology, science, and just plain learning.
That went away a long, long time ago.
Discovery = Reality shows targeting men
TLC = Reality shows targeting women
I'm pretty sure that CurrentC will not use NFC. I think it'll do something like generate a QR code that gets scanned or photographed, or something like that.
Sadly, with backers like Walmart, they'll be able to offer sign-up incentives, like 10% off or whatever. They'll probably push it very hard.
This is kind of what happened with webmail when Gmail came out. I remember at the time, in 2004, Hotmail was 2MB of storage and Yahoo was 3MB of storage. As soon as Gmail came out with its 1GB of storage, you saw the others suddenly start offering a lot more storage.
Even our most advanced space robots aren't immune to taking selfies.
Unless, of course, we one day create a computer so powerful it can figure out how to reverse entropy.
Of course they realize it. They realized it years ago, when they got rid of unlimited data.
Android Wear supports both round and rectangular screens. The reason for this is fashion, and fashion will always beat out pure function.
