Unless you do both at the same time, which is exactly what SolarCity is now offering using the Tesla battery back thing.
Yeah, but getting pissed about stuff on South Park is so last decade. Everyone expects juvenile attention grabs from them now, and is hardly shocked by anything done by that show.
Unfortunately because of distances involved and having phone companies that like to pocket money rather than reinvesting it, the vast majority of true residential high-speed service uses wire that doesn't belong to phone companies. Cable television, predominantly.
What you describe exists in the US on the telephone system - if you go with DSL, you can choose ISPs and they can deal with the phone company that actually owns the wire and provision a circuit. But the cable companies aren't regulated the same way, so they get to run the whole show. This is why you saw such dread about a Comcast / Time Warner merger - two cable companies getting together to try and screw everyone they can by not only being an ISP juggernaut big enough to push around Netflix and the like, but by also being a content producer (NBC Universal) that has an automatic distribution to 1/3 of the country without having to play with anyone else, and that 1/3 really can't choose anyone else.
I've never seen so much evangelizing about a particular subsystem change in Linux before, which makes me think that unlike other past changes, this one needs it rather than having it's own benefits do the selling...
Batteries operate with direct current. Need a particular voltage / AC frequency? Get a proper inverter for your needs. Problem solved.
How else is he supposed to keep enjoying his hot tub while doing laundry and cooking a Thanksgiving feast during a blackout, you insensitive clod?!
So enter into a power purchase agreement, or a lease. Or, take advantage of one of the solar companies offering low interest loan programs.
The days of having to whack out a 5-figure payment in order to go solar were over like 6 years ago.
Yeah - I'd love to have the geothermal heat pump, but I just have a regular one that exchanges heat with outside air.
There's not a lot of heat to be pulled from the air when it's 5F outside. My electric bills were atrocious this winter from using what is effectively a giant toaster inside my air handler to heat the house. I'll be having someone coming by to "weatherproof" the house this summer in order to try to increase efficiency, but I'd love to put a nice whack of PV panels on the roof, and one of these batteries on the wall next to the electrical panel and water heater in my utility area.
And here's the companion press release from SolarCity, where they are reselling the Tesla product with their panel installs.
And as noted by others in reply to your note from others, your own fucking wayback machine link states:
"Even under ideal conditions, Apple Watch may not be able to get a reliable heart rate reading every time for everybody. And for a small percentage of users, various factors may make it impossible to get any heart rate reading at all."
Clearly, having a tattoo counts as one of the "various factors"
Yeah, because a god damn watch not being able to read your heart rate is absolutely equal to products that kill people, and products that have actual component failures that already result in returns and exchanges.
From your own god damn wayback machine link:
Even under ideal conditions, Apple Watch may not be able to get a reliable heart rate reading every time for everybody. And for a small percentage of users, various factors may make it impossible to get any heart rate reading at all.
So they just added another point of detail. It clearly says that it won't work for some people, and apparently people with wrist tattoos are included in that set. Try again, yourself.
WHICH Air and Space museum? The one in San Diego? Wright-Patterson AFB? Any of the other hundred scattered about?
Why would I have to click on the link just to figure out wtf you're talking about?
While it was poorly worded, he meant to say the first PowerPC-native version of Word for Mac System 7.5. That would probably be Word 6.0. And it was ass-slow and terrible.
If there's no registry crap, then all the installer is doing is inflating files into a folder. Who cares if it's InstallShield or 7Zip doing it?
