I feel like this just moving the goal posts. Sure I guess you could have some elaborate contraption to make Hydrogen only using solar or wind power, but it's more than likely it was made in a factory that burned lots of hydrocarbons. This is just a way of storing energy. We need to look at the whole picture of where the Hydrogen came from to do a true "full-cost accounting" of the benefits or lack thereof.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
The time you go to work, or go home is just a number. I've been a pilot for years and it's very easy to switch to knowing I wake up at 1200 UTC and I usually get home from work about 0000 UTC. What's difficult is all this messing with the clock. If you call a company on the other side of the country, imagine how much easier it would be if they just could give you the UTC time you're use to thinking in terms of for their hours of operations? It really just works, everyone has to just let go of the idea that work starts at 9AM and ends at 5PM. The time your work starts and ends should be a function of where you live around the globe (and perhaps if you work night shift).
Am I missing something? Does this site require Java or Silverlight or something. The page is very stark and there's no ranking shown. What am I missing? Did it get slashdotted?
Does it annoy anyone else that I you can't view slashdot videos behind a firewall and you can NOT view them on a Android device. Unless Slashdot can use a friendly format for firewalls and Android devices can you please just use YouTube or at least cross-post it. It's really annoying.
The wavier they granted is to allow this aircraft to be consider "light-sport", which means you can fly it with out a third class medical. This is NOT that big a deal and the summary makes it sound like some sort of break-through and that the FAA has held everything up. This just not correct.
The flying car sucks because just like the moped, it doesn't excel at either it's missions. It can never be as good an airplane as one designed just for flying and it can never be a very nice, safe car either. I think goal is home garage to destination in one vehicle while flying above traffic. I think the best hope for that is the CarterCopter (http://www.cartercopters.com/). It's not a car, but it's an affordable, safe aircraft that can take-off and land vertically. The downside, it that these guys have been working for years....and making progress...but they probably have many years still to go, with little funding. The CarterCopter will never out run an airplane in it's same price range, but the vertical T.O. and landing makes up for that.
Why do this Apple fan boys always have to oversell their point. Exaggeration is the best way to destroy your credibility. I could have been fine with "free software movements haven't produced products as compelling as...". That would have been a fine strong statement and something most people could accept, but no. This person had to add "anything" and "remotely". So lame.
Wow, you're right!

Maybe they just don't have it configured for enough disk space or something?
