If the systems were affordable without the special arrangements and tax breaks, this article wouldn't exist in the first place because the panels would be popping up all over Florida. While lecturing others on correct logical reasoning you've committed an obvious error in practical reasoning, which is based mostly on human nature and the predictable reactions of people to situations.

This is the sort of comment that should be modded (+10, Authoritative), but isn't, due to the low-quality audience. As a further fitting tribute to the stupidity of the Slashdot modding/comment-hiding system, once I logged in, I had to fiddle with the display controls in order to get the site to display me the single best comment in the thread.

Submission + - Lowe's announces prototype "holoroom" kitchen showroom prototypes in Canada->

Legal.Troll writes: (from the the-goggles-they-do-nothing department?) Lowe's has announced they will be testing a new tablet-interfaced "holoroom" designed to allow customers to see a visual representation of kitchen installations in real time while they browse. An iPad with custom software will be used to conduct the user-driven product demonstration. The thing only looks about ten times creepier than a giant MRI machine, so I have no problem being one of the first to walk in and let it project laser beams at me so that the sales force can be laid off!

Comment legal defense fund for "unprovoked" assaults (Score -1) 341

I plan to start a legal defense fund for persons accused of "unprovoked" assaults on Google Glass users... The defense will be that the users themselves are walking violations of well-established traditional notions of privacy, and deserve to have the device punched off their face and smashed on the ground.

Reading since 97, posting since late 2000's, I saw Beta once and it was horrid; I noticed there was no "please let me never see this again" option. I'm sick of innovation in website and GUI design. Existing paradigms work fine for me and I dislike having to constantly relearn the interface elements to access basic functionality just because of some designer's wet dream of The Future.

The best things in life go on sale sooner or later.
