Um, no. Power in is measured at the substation level and can't possibly catch an individual stealing 10's of kilowatts. Likewise, temperature variations change the efficiency of cables and transformers. Most often power thievery is caught by a jealous neighbor turning someone in.
Not really. The article just missed the real reason. Lightning strikes. Florida power reliability is horrible because of the huge number of electrical storms and lightning strikes to the system. This will facilitate "routing around" strikes and bringing up portions of the grid faster. Of course, blaming mother nature isn't as politically popular as blaming piggish customers.
Most places in the US have a small local honey industry. Support it.
DaveinTexas writes "According to Fox News, Facebook had profits in excess of 1 billion for 2012 and yet they also received a refund of over 450 million. Interesting considering all (or most) of us had our taxes go up 3-6%. However, I find no other confirmation of this story, which, at the moment, I believe to be true. Anyone able to confirm or repudiate said story?"

There's also a correlation between cosmic rays and the ozone hole. Just saying.
Flash-based in-circuit reprogrammable logic arrays have been around for at least 20 years. Move along, nothing to see here.
Been so for 25 years. It's called FLASH memory.
To becoming the controlling elite of our country. Somehow I'm not surprised.
It's about government access to patient information. Everything else is a sideshow.

I don't care so much about the increased resolution. What bugs the shit out of me is the motion artifacts and the grayscale discontinuities that I constantly see even on Blu-ray. Fix the real problems first then worry about the resolution.
I mean, net neutrality is nice and all, but I hardly think that Google and ATT will just roll over and let Intel use their backbone fiber without a fight.
A whiny Israeli blogs that he doesn't like the way Facebook interviewed him. I'm going to bed.
Interesting that the OP got instantly modded down. Suppose the article was about a new computer language and the article described it as a compiler when it really was an interpreter. Bullshit would be called immediately. Same level of error, different tech.
I'd pay money to see the first run.
