While the expensive commercial hand seems overpriced, it also reflects costs like R & D, field testing and marketing that a printed hand may not have incurred. It seems as though the designers of the 3d printed hand probably looked at different commercial models and copied the best features from them, making this something of an apples/oranges comparison and it may infringe on (so called) intellectual property, if offered commercially. Could the printed hand exist without resting on the shoulders of the commercial products?

Part of the reason the ACLU doesn't spent much effort on 2d amendment issues is that the NRA is much better funded and defends only one amendment. No 2d amendment case with merit has failed to make it to court for lack of backing. Tons of 1st and 4th amendment cases don't get off the ground because of the much more limited resources available to the ACLU.
"...requires 3dB better SNR, which in turn means doubling the transmit power..."
Or using better antennas.
Didn't you write a long time ago that it was wrong to try to use an infected machine to remove viruses because it couldn't be trusted -- and then go on to found a company that did just that? Care to comment?
While I can see where they would be occasionally useful, mostly for making replacements for small, hand-to-find parts, I'm not ready to buy yet. I thought about it last summer but for the money, I got an oxy-actylene set up instead. I figure in 10 or even 20 years, the gas welding setup will be worth about what I paid for it whereas the 3d printer will be worth approximately nothing, like a 10 year old computer.
I'm not trying to say that these are equivalent goods with equivalent capabilities, just that I will get more use for more years out of a welder.
The Luxottica Group is the recognized leader in over priced eye-ware.
So they're basically running through LinkedIn and targeting anyone who says they're a SysAdmin, a VP, or anyone else who looks like they might have elevated privileges?
Ignorance of the law is no excuse, but in 18 years of public and private education, I was not every told about any laws, except in passing, unless you want to count reading the constitution in the 12th grade.
It used to be that governments had secret laws that you could be guilty of without even knowing it was illegal. We've done something better. Most laws are public but there are so many of them no on can possibly know them all -- ask any lawyer.
That slippery slope is making them accelerate downhill at a faster rate.

Nietzsche said that a lie is something most often told to one's self, about one's self.
Agreed. If you want backup, you have to pony up. You have to either buy twice the disks, an expensive tape drive (or a cheaper tape drive a lot of tapes) or pay for bandwidth and off-site storage.
Now if Firefox could just scale images properly when viewing them.....
You're right. While there's no legal expectation of privacy, there's social expectation of privacy in a bar. At least one expects that they aren't going to be filmed without consent.
I'd like to point out that Rosie quit after a couple of weeks because she thought the job was too dangerous.
