I think the point is to ban autonomous weapon systems, not automatic.What's the difference? An automatic weapon system can destroy targets you choose, an autonomous weapon system can destroy targets it chooses.
From the article:
"By 2020, Chiang estimates that 24M will be able to produce batteries for less than $100 per kilowatt-hour of capacity"
That's a pretty bold claim considering a 1KW lithium ion battery currently cost 10x that.
If I want to take my hypothetical basic income check and spend it on crack, why do you care? At least I'm not out on the street robbing people for the money. If I spend my check on fancy clothes and can't afford my rent, why do you care? I'll learn my lesson real quick when I get evicted.
Or maybe I'll take my check and use it to start a small business and bootstrap myself into a better life.
I couldn't do that with food stamps, and housing vouchers.
In 1990 Windows 3.0 came out, which can still run in a VM today. Considering today's slower pace of change in computing technology, I think it's a safe bet any modern OS will run, in a VM, on future computers.
Just pick a popular and open VM container format so you're not tied to a vendor. OVF for example.
You might want to also consider visualizing the version control system as well. Source history may be important to future developers making changes. Use a decentralized VCS like git, so version history gets archived with the development machine automatically.
Luckily there is no such thing as infinite resources.
If the traditional way of doing pattern recognition was a 1 stroke lawnmower engine, this new way would be a V8.
If you're expecting Mono to cover every aspect of the
People expect Mono to be able to run any
As other posters pointed out, this is all a mute point anyway.
Depending on what dependencies you use in your code you could have had it running on Linux years ago using Mono.
I've had good experiences running ASP.NET MVC and console apps on Linux in production environments.
Exactly, I can get the equivalent voltage of a li-ion cell by stringing together lemons. Doesn't mean it would fit in the back of my cell phone.
There is only so much space on the utility polls and under the streets. The number of companies who are allowed to run network cable has to be limited. It's the same with electric, gas, and phone line. I don't see why people don't understand this. It's government enforced monopoly because it's the only practical way to do it.
With common carrier regulation the companies that have the right to use PUBLIC lands for profit must lease their lines to other companies at a fair market value.
The real solution to all of this is the government should build the infrastructure using tax dollars and then lease it to private companies. If I was Bush/Obama in 2008 during the economic crisis I would have used the bail out money to build a nationwide Internet service. Would have hired a lot of people for quite a few years and we'd be better off as a nation for it.
The Dell 2015 XPS 13 uses machined aluminum and carbon fiber. How is this different in terms of build quality than a Macbook?
Umm Minecraft seems playable on a Intel HD 5500 to me.
Remember, Google isn't out to make profit directly through providing Internet service. They are an advertisement company, and just want to make sure as many people as possible have unfettered access to their ads.
Large corporations are risk adverse. They aren't going to hold onto BTC for the reason you said. It's a different story for individuals and small business owners.
I would personally take BTC for my services (software development), and I'm not alone.
BTC started as a grassroots concept, and will continue to grow that way. No matter what happens to the exchanges.
