Not quite true. Any material event in the company, which this certainly is, must be disclosed in an 8K filing with the SEC, and made public.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
As a public company, this is clearly material information that needs to be disclosed to all shareholders (current and potential). Once you start trading stock, your corporate right to privacy pretty much disappears, at least where possible criminal activity is concerned.
Of course it matters, because the world is being asked (forced) to spend trillions of dollars to solve what may not be a problem, and may not be solvable.
The data as presented indicates a recent warming trend, but does not say anything about whether this is man-made or not; a 0.5deg rise in 50 years is extremely small in the scheme of things, and drawing the usual alarmist conclusions from this is quite unfounded.
That is extremely telling. Good catch!
Something strange happens with this one. Sometimes I get the button, sometimes I don't.
Looks like an excellent bubble to take advantage of. Sell (or short) Apple, buy Microsoft.
Agreed. They are nothing but parasites on productive companies.
Why on earth are you whining about a $20 price? People spend plenty more on screensavers.
Totally worth it, and negligible when considering the cost of the rest of the hardware.
I expect that an improvement can be done with webcam tracking, obviously for one viewer at a time.
Not at all difficult to do with any modern mill.
It's a nice enough demo for a five-axis mill, but these are hardly new nor revolutionary in any way. These have been around for at least a decade, probably much longer.
You're correct. There is far too little energy available from sound waves to be useful.
You're right. I'd imagine the fault is not with the original paper, it's in the interpretation of this paper by the popular press. We see this again and again.
Shitting in a hole is very sanitary, as long as the hole is not near any drinking water. The poo breaks down pretty readily on its own, and doesn't need any help.
It's a real shame that the patent system has been able to be manipulated so effectively, to siphon hard-earned money from real companies, and real inventors, into the pockets of these parasites. They're nothing but a drain on everyone. Lemelson's legacy lives on!
I'm glad this is getting some attention, though.
