What can I run my Nexus tablet on now that Cyanogenmod has sold out? Suggestions anyone?
This car is going to have a major problem with most people because
The first time there's' a catastrophic failure the 24 hour news stations are going to be showing old films of the Heisenberg. Hydrogen will become the really scary new (again) bogyman. "Oh, the humanity"
But no one will think of all of the gasoline powered cars that came equipped with exploding gas tanks. Chrysler Jeeps being the most recent I can think of.
Why would they show films of the Uncertainty Principle?
First you'll have to get rid of all those pesky poor people - which increasingly means everyone - since they/we won't be able to afford them.
(The Cash for Clunkers program was another move in that direction since it removed perfectly good automobiles from the market that would typically be used in a few years by people lower on the food chain.)
And yes, I'm serious.
I'm in Vermont and can attest to this. See Ben & Jerry's, Green Mountain Coffee, Burton Snowboards and more for examples of crunchy-granola-goodness selling out eventually.

An Internet-connected thermostat isn't needed for this. 20 years ago our suburban Maryland home had its heat pump on a utility-controlled program - Kilowatchers - that did the same thing without the Internet. The utility was able to switch the heat pump on and off over the power lines offering the same type of discount thanks to a switch they hung on the outside compressor. It worked great. I see they have discontinued it and started this Internet crap.
I'm sure they *might* be able to put together a little website with some animated cartoons of rockets. (Prolly end up having to get it redone after it fails to launch properly.)
Many many years ago Gartner said it cost some ridiculous amount of $$$ to support a workplace desktop. A little over a decade ago they said it would cost $3K/yr to support a handheld. I've never paid attention to anything they've had to say since.

Guaranteeing yet another generation of assholes will be coming down the pike.
