Or the pesky part that at relativistic speeds hydrogen atoms rip through the ship as if it was tinfoil.
Can't we muster a popular appeal against posting vapid articles from medium.com here? Please? Or at least post them with a mandatory icon warning people that this is heavy on glossy pictures and light on worthwhile information?
Who writes this stuff anyway? Clearly somebody with a strong interest in big photos of impressive looking things; whereas I suspect that most of us would be far more interested in good, solid, factual information, without illustrations, unless strictly needed. Is it 'samzenpus'? Does he/she have a glycerine complex?
Why? Since when is it a court's business to protect some business model that doesn't work out?
What you seem to fail to understand is that there is a difference: rich people DESERVE to be rich and therefore DESERVE a better standard of legislation that doesn't interfere unfairly with their right to further enrich themselves. Plebs on the other hand are lazy and probably communists or worse, and should be kept down with any means possible. Surely you can see that?
At the moment I am a bit divided over this issue. I understand their desire to collect revenue to fund a site. But I do need to balance that against the opening up of my system to all sorts of tracking. And at the moment my privacy trumps the websites revenue.
Well, look at it this way: This is Capitalism, right? We're told that under Capitalism, the value of any product or service is whatever you can persuade others to pay. If nobody wants to pay, then it is worthless. If I come across websites that refuse to serve their content unless I allow adverts, I just move on; there are plenty of sites to choose from, usually, and often the ones with the best information are the ones with the least pollution.
And then you get sites like Slashdot, which have this wonderful checkbox that says because I am such a good user, that they will disable advertising for me if I want. Which even if I do, I still get ads served up to me - hence another reason for ad blocking software.
Well, that's the thing - how can one enter into any sort of trust-based relationship, when the other party so clearly can't be trusted?
Except that this substrate is not being used for Si based semiconductors, but for GaAs instead
Apart from that, there is the whole, emerging, organic and printable semiconductor industry:
These things are not necessarily meant for servers or even consumer electronics as we know it; there is a huge number of things that different industries are interested in using computer technology for, where things like price, flexibility and low power consumption are crucial factors. Just imagine if it were possible to print something like thousands of largely autonomous computers on stickers for, say, $.01 each; I think this may very well be possible quite soon. In that situation, you want electronics that are bio-degradable.
They dont have to pass anything. Just let it expire. Saying they HAVE to do something is supporting it.
"Can people afford to put a solar array on their house with $70k income? No"
No? only a doofus thinks that. I put one on my home when I made only $40K It's not expensive if you don't use the overpriced made in america solar panels.
I bought China 200 watt panels for less than $1.50 a watt. then installed a syncing inverter and use the grid as my battery. I actually run the meter backwards.
If you make $70K and cant afford solar, then you are either a fool, or someone that can't budget money very well.
I'll give you $50 cash for each of them.
Most will be sold by the end of the summer.
90% of those publishers either publish tripe, or rip it off from elsewhere. in fact a LOT of those sites simply rip off other people's work and pass it off as their own. LiveLeak for example steals stuff from Vimeo and youtube.
Depends on how much the US judge would have been paid off.
I like the way you think!
In schools you need a shock collar on the student, and then everyone votes to shock them.
You need to fix them in school before they become useless MBA's
The voices in his head, and the Art Bell radio show coming in on his tinfoil hat.
