Original silver with square chiclet key keyboard, or one of those new fangled curved key white jobs?
Ah, youngsters who have yet to discover the perfection of the Northgate OmniKey, while the model M may be the industrial jackhammer of keyboard design, the OmniKey is a pure tactile delight that will not wake the dead when you use it to log in to check your email first thing in the morning.
So now we get people priced out of any insurance coverage at all instead of only having catastrophic only coverage. Don't tell me it does not happen I know a man that had to quit his job of 42 years with a small business this week because his employee contribution for his noth that great health insurance had reached over $900 per month.
Because sooner or later something is going to happen to this little rock that will make it far less perfect, ranging from another rock hitting it to nearby super nova, to more mundane things like and ultra plague that wipes out life as we know it.
Have you ever watched a cam copy of a movie, particulalry a fast paced action movie? They are nearly useless, at best they give you a preview of what to expect from the film (in this case the 5 previous ones from the series should have given you an idea), or let you rewatch a scene you missed when you were in front of the high res real thing the night before. Otherwise the video sucks, is blurry, lacks contrast and the color balance is off, and the sound is like listening to music over a speaker phone.
This just provides a false sense of security, think how easy it would be to gut a big 17 or 19 inch notebook, install the motherboard from an ultra thin model with a micro SSD flash drive and a small wafer battery from a tablet that will boot up and provide 5 - 10+ minutes of run time and still leave room for a few pounds of other "contraband" stuff in the case.
How is this even news unless you live in western MT?
I am much the same way, although never joined Mena, had the IQ scores, never saw a reason to join, could always find smart people to talk to on my own. I also really don't think Mensa is as elite as they pretend to be, as all you have to do is score in the top couple of percent of the population on any one a number of IQ tests. Which I suspect drops the entrance requirement down by a few percent however you cut it.
Assuming it is, I guess it is time for self destucting time locked crypto, maybe a password backed key on a usb device with self desctruct countdown
Where does this myth of slave labor pay in the oil industry come from? I live on the gulf coast in the middle of the U.S. petrochem region and the recent resurgence of U.S. oil exploration has lead to insane levels of job growth and prime pay for those lucky enough to work in the major petrochem plants. I was recently shocked by the reality of this at an extended family event at Easter, where I saw one of my wife's cousins, he is 23 years old, married with 2 young kids, and has a 2 year degree from local trade school and he makes over $100,000 per year doing shift work as an operator at one of the plants.

Wow all these replies and as far as I see, NO ONE seems to be concerned about what ever option is safest for the occupents of the car the computer is controlling.
No you don't you only need keys, and maybe not even that if you have certain skills
So you are saying you tend to kick in the doors of your friends houses in the middle of the night?
The real problem though with this bracelet tech is that it requires some sort of signal be sent to the gun, and the gun defaults to do not fire. The next step will be proximity no fire transmitters in "gun free" zones, police cars / officers, etc. These transmitters WILL be stolen by people with violent crimal intent. Imagine how safe this would make robbing a liquor store, just go in wearing your personal jammer
