So no patent was invalidated. It is just that there was no infringement...
Wind is far more significant than 1 MOA. However, If they can detect wind with the lidar stuff you are talking about, then it would pretty much nail down all the significant variables. That would be incredible.
How does it detect the wind at 100, 200, 300, and 400 yards? How does it detect the change in wind speed over that full distance? It is impossible. In fact, the best way to calibrate is to actually fire a bullet. But even then, you can't be assured that the wind didn't change for the next shot. I guess if you fire and adjust in rapid succession, you could hit a needle after multiple shots.
If there is a 70m gap between prime pairs, then there is a 70m gap between primes. Prime pairs are made up of primes. So it effectively proves that every series of 70m numbers has at least 2 primes and 1 prime pair. Is there a proof that narrows basic primes to a smaller maximum?
OH and i80 in PA can easily support that and maybe 100mph. But many stretches of i70/i76 in PA cannot take 55mph. NJ highways are awful (not design, but road quality). If you can't trust that there isn't a massive pothole, it isn't good to be driving really fast.
When on the Autobahn, I noticed a lot of preventative maintenance during the day. Guys going around picking up debris. The roads were clean and no structural issues. Most roads are lined with trees or 30 ft walls. This makes crosswinds less of a factor...because they are VERY noticeable when going 100mph+.
There are a lot of improvements needed in the US to support such high speeds. And not just one time improvements...but constant monitoring. You can't have a shredded tire in a lane and expect someone to see it and react appropriately at really high speeds.
Generally speaking, I go 9-10 over the speed limit. But this is a chicken-egg scenario. Am I going 9-10 over the speed limit because they set the speed limit 10 mph too low on purpose? Or do I go 9-10 over what they post? It is a combination of both.
Back in the, you could patent a door once. But today, you can patent the door thousands of times, as long as you change the way it is constructed.
Look at the positives. The destruction of this temple has made all the other historic sites more valuable.
The total equity for the company is $10.7B. It has grown steadily $1.2-2.2B per year. Both debt and assets are increasing at a steady pace, but assets are outpacing debt.
$10.7B/1.75B shares ~ $6/share. How is it worth $20/share? On top of that, their assets are as valuable for someone else as they are for them, AT BEST.
Also, the 1.75B probably doesn't include all shares...
Apple iBoat (because Yacht is too specific)
What you meant to say:
I don't need to know how to cook, but I need to know where I can buy food and that food is processed into calories which give me energy every day. I need to know that I can't drink bleach and that pizza every day all day is not that good for me. I need to know that stoves are hot and refrigerators keep things cool/cold.
Likewise, most people should know something basic about computing. They already know things are fragile: You can't throw your phone into a pool or spike it into concrete like a football. But they should probably know more. But coding? No.
I don't understand at all how "a la carte" fixes anything with blackout rules.
Why can't the sports venue, typically a privately run venue, have a contract with the channels recording the event to not broadcast in that area? If their feed leads to broadcasting in that area when the event isn't sold out, they could cut the feed for them in all areas. The recorder would be in breach of contract, the venue would still get the payment from the recorder, and the recorder would lose all the advertising revenue. "A la carte" does nothing here.
So it is like SimCity, but it works
I think this is correct, but they are likely searching email without warrant after it reached its destination. That is where it is wrong, unless the owner (like Google for Gmail email) gives permission. You do not own your email on Gmail. Google does.
Although some were coerced, others weren't.
But back to the subject: the US government should not need a warrant to view your mail on Google if Google lets them look at it. If Google doesn't, the government can get around the 4th amendment by legally writing a law to levy a 95% tax on Google's income unless Google lets the FBI monitor all email. There's always a loophole...
