I've been using my SSD (yes, an OCZ Agility 2) since March 2011 (almost 3 years now), at least half of that under XP (no TRIM support), and according to what's been written on the drive, It won't matter for another 4-5 years even if sometimes I'm pounding the hell out of it. (it's 25nm if I'm not mistaking). most conventionnal drives will give me bad sectors way before that.
I can assure you in Canada your extremities would go well below that in winter.
Just not in the Simpsons anymore
*If the mats cost a fortune to install or require significant upgrades to a home's existing infrastructure (a la a 220V system) they'll be less likely to be deployed.*
Not really different than having another panel installed for a central A/C IMO. But the biggest point is the efficiency of wireless charging.
If they do this, let them lose Common Carrier status (and the legal protection it gives them).
What they want is another way to gouge the customer and prevent competitors.
I wouldn't be surprised if nVidia/Intel/anyone else is doing the same.
Kinda like the picture on the menu and what you get in your plate
Until we see some names, those studies are useless...
There's a firmware difference. Enterprise drives will stop retrying sooner as to not get dropped from the array.
The alternator still has a coil, so does the starter...
Depends on what scale of power. A small EMP will disrupt computer controlled stuff by inducing stray signals and crashing either the bus or the cpu itself. A big enough EMP will *destroy* integrated circuits.
Ever went under high-tension lines with a spring loaded umbrella? That spring is still a coil...
analog channels were mostly on VHF (better propagation around obstacles). Digital is mostly on UHF where it's pretty much line-of-sight
A good preamp with a low noise floor will help (something in the 3dB or lower range), just make sure it doesn't have too much gain and includes an FM trap if they are some near stations.
SN/R is more important than signal strength with digital OTA (at least with 8VSB)
This, and UHF is less forgiving of obstacles. UHF is pretty much LOS. When NBC and CBS moved from VHF(RF3 and RF5) to UHF, I lost them because I've got buildings between the antenna and Mt. Mansfield.
The only advantage is the antenna is *way* smaller than the old fishbone monsters.

First the wheelchair woman and now this?
Land of the free indeed. (But I'm not getting my hopes up with Harper)
