Get an external mic and plug it in when you need it. And you'll probably get better sound than the built-in.
Imagine Star Wars, Ghost in the Shell, or Iron Man being forgotten and all copies of them being tossed down the memory hole 100 years from now.
It's already pretty hard to find a legal copy of the original version of Star Wars.
They sure do. Like preventing the Mooninites from bombing the subway.
The bridge between Germany and Finland?
Mordor has a much better public transit system.
Tempered, not timbered. I don't know what a "timbered scale" is, it sounds like an obscure 18th century sailing term.
Nick Cave. Does he still count as "underground"?
You can ask the same thing about voting machines. It's like some people are in a race to find more and more ways to fuck up a perfectly simple task.
How do you streal something that disappears after a magnet is passed over it?
Are we talking about Bitcoins, or music?
Serves him right for running a proprietary OS.
It's fair to say that Segway hasn't exactly been "to the car what the car was to the horse and buggy," like its founder Dean Kamen said it would. It hasn't even been to the moped what the moped was to the horse and buggy. Or what the bicycle was. It's just been a (sometimes morbid) punchline. And one that's almost too impossible to believe. Did you know that Kamen thought he'd need an around-the-clock factory churning out 10,000 Segways a week to meet initial demand? It's true. It's also true that he only needed to make 10 a week to do so. This wasn't just self-delusion. It was mass delusion. Back in 2001, Steve Jobs thought Segway could be as big as personal computers. The venture capitalist behind Amazon thought it could be bigger than the internet. The entire internet. The only reasonable explanation for all this hype was that neither of them had actually seen someone ride a Segway. Because, as Y Combinator's Paul Graham puts it, you can't ride a Segway without looking like a "smug dork." And people generally try to avoid looking like that. They won't use something so inherently ridiculous, no matter how technically impressive it might be. Like Bitcoin.
Are you referring to that bullshit story that was posted here a few days ago, that made it sound like the EPA police would be going into people's homes and ripping out their stoves?
Solar uses huge amounts of land-per-MWh
Solar can use space that's not being used for anything else, like rooftops.
this only works in places with a lot of room and a lot of sun
My friends have an off-grid house. Solar panels that feed a battery bank, plus a gasoline-powered generator as a backup. They very rarely run the generator, mostly in the winter. This is in central NY, which definitely doesn't get a lot of sun. Their heat comes from a wood stove. So they meet most of their energy needs with non-fossil sources. It's really not as hard as you think.
I have no problem with cops being tracked while on the job. I actually think it's an excellent idea. What I am worried about is the slippery slope. We've seen it with drug testing: at first, it was only the people who REALLY needed to have their shit together, like air traffic controllers. Then it was train conductors. And school bus drivers. And truck drivers. Now, it's just indiscriminate: janitors, secretaries, nurses, accountants... (although strangely enough, the managers who oversee these workers usually don't have to piss in a cup.)
