If Slashdot had posted a story about "the Lone Gunmen" pilot episode, then they would have a scoop that anticipated the 9/11 attacks with a civilian airliner, by several months...
"All things come to those who wait"
Yes, but we want asteroids, not meteorites. Or worse, an impactor that doesn't just break up and lie there.
Nah. Not HERE, in the land of the Free, with Rule of Law!
We were right all the time. Unfettered by doctrine, dogma of allegiances, wary of our own cognitive bias, we saw what we saw.
I'll believe that when I see a process for refining the raw materials in orbit and producing something usable out of them. As is, asteroid mining endeavors are nothing short of magical thinking.
So nothing is real or possible before you see it? Why not kill yourself now, then? After all, tomorrow may never come.
People smarter than you (or I) believe that mining asteroids is not only possible but even feasibly. That doesn't mean that it is, of course. It only means that I have no reason to give a shit what you think about asteroid mining.
Fungus among us.
He preached Torah?
Harrumph. He makes vague statements about Law, in writings committed 60 years after his crucifixion.
Sermon on the Mount is what he taught.
It's a cartel. Put together to ensure the companies in that cartel are safe from patents from one another, while they will continue to use them against companies not in their cartel.
If this isn't illegal, it bloody well should be.
OK. Tell that to MPEG-LA. By your definition it's a cartel plus extortion. Have fun with that.
Asteroid mining is the only way we're going to build large structures in space anytime "soon". There's plenty of asteroids, this issue can be revisited later.
Ah. I see. I havn't had points on the Dot since 2011.
So either he has VERY special unique requirements that he hasn't clearly communicated,
Why is low power consumption a special, unique requirement? All of my computer equipment was chosen and/or assembled with low consumption in mind. My Desktop's TDP is under 350W and I can play games at 1920x1200, albeit not with everything turned on any more. I have a small fleet of netbooks for performing long-running tasks or for traveling, I sold an HP EliteBook and bought three of them. I even took an EEE 701 4GB running Jolicloud on a six-week vacation to Panama. My most power-hungry portable has two cores and the CPU has a TDP of 13W, and I'm undervolting.
Much of the goal was to be able to run on solar for long periods, which I do occasionally. Not so much lately, unfortunately, but I've mostly rebuilt my mobile solar rig. That reminds me, I should order some aluminum piano hinge.
They're not always effective; governments seem to be free to ignore these things if it appears to be politically motivated.
INTERPOL itself has no teeth. It's left to the nations themselves to decide if they care what it has to say on a case-by-case basis. It permits information sharing (etc) but does not require it. Their goal is "To ensure and promote the widest possible mutual assistance between all criminal police authorities within the limits of the laws existing in the different countries and in the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights" and not to enforce laws themselves.
To imagine that Glass is always pointed at something interesting is pretty narcissistic, don't you think?
Only if you fail to understand that it's always pointed at something interesting to the wearer. I know this is complicated, but please do try to keep up.
Nope, but a chromebook gives 2GB of ram.
Yes, and so do many netbooks. My Acer Aspire One D250 only came with 1GB, as did my EEE 701, but those are old. My LT31 came with 2GB. I upgraded the dimm to get lower-latency memory, mostly to speed up the integrated graphics. Most of the machines that will support 1GB will support 2GB and some of them will even take a 4GB SODIMM, but don't count on it.
