It's New England. Can't someone just walk to the next state and buy a Tesla there?
I think manufacturers might willingly omit cables from their products, like we see with printers. One effect of standardizing chargers is that everyone will just buy cheap generic chargers from China. (as opposed to expensive brand name chargers from China)
But customers can still dual boot if they install it themselves, right?
Not fine. That's child abuse.
Doctors are certainly allowed to do harm to parasites.
TFA claims that coal causes $100-500 billion in damage per year. If that is the case, and I don't know if it is, then pass that cost on to the coal industry. Basic economics states that externalities cause a free market to be inefficient, so why aren't we internalizing the externalities?
1. buy coal industry for 50 giga$
2. new coal companies form
3. new coal companies use eminent domain to buy your land for significantly less than 50 giga$
Did everyone in the entire world spend a buck on this game or something?
That's not an option for US companies. If you can collect the data, the government can collect the data from you. If the NSA asks for the data, you hand it over... unless you are prepared to out Lavabit style.
Differing rules is kind of a good thing, because then you can't reuse the same password on different sites.
Blocking access after failed passwords just invites denial of service attacks. It seems like a bad idea for most situations.
You know, some start-ups do succeed and become middling or large companies.
Dude, that's what's awesome about it. Chinatown is awesome. So is Latino town. How boring would it be if everyone acted all Western European.
You want less immigrants? Then spend more on foreign aid. If you can improve the lives of people abroad, maybe they won't come here.
You'd rather build walls? Walls leak, and walls break when we smash them. If you don't want to live in a global society, then stop importing stuff, and stop traveling, because that just adds holes in your walls.
Why do you care about the poor unskilled and semi-skilled workers across the country more than poor skilled immigrants? Are you one of them? Is it because they look more like you?
I don't think most Slashdotters are against STEM education funding. What they are against, is the idea that America has a shortage of STEM students, so talent must be imported.
