Great... my first cuppa read through of the overnight happenings is defunct and the first email I get is from the army times touting their "alternative". But why would we want the soldier caste to have a nonpartisan/independent run-down of the news? FML...
If they're concerned about those dosage levels, they had better guard the banana stockpile and ensure that athletes don't ingest too much radiation!
Torque does most of this -- pretty straightforward to attach an ODBII / bluetooth connection.
I would just like a pogo port connection on the "infotainment area" of the dash so I could nestle a Nexus 10 down when I'm driving and then pull it when I hop out.
How convenient. At least we know there's one back out of the gravity well on Mars, we'll just have to bring the ammonium salts
This is the voice of world control. I bring you peace. It may be the peace of plenty and content or the peace of unburied death. The choice is yours: Obey me and live, or disobey and die.
Wonder why they are assuming sea-level atmosphere inside the pressure vessel... long term human habitation has been recorded near 6000m (less than 50kPa).
Hopefully this one won't shut down randomly throughout the day...
We don't want the stable-hands still inside to see that the horses are gone.
sounds damned uncomfortable
Probably less uncomfortable than having paperweight bones with serious fracture risks
They should just mandate that NASA builds a space elevator by 2020 and be done with it...
Who always get screwed by our over-taxing, yet somehow insolvent, state government.
I always wanted some teeth growing at the base of my spine.
Seriously, lets exploit some desperate people for basic reseach... sigh.
From the summary: "Yet while you can pick up a 4GB model for less than the price of a meal, large capacity drives are still prohibitively expensive. Meanwhile, solid state drives (SSDs) also utilize flash memory, but masquerade as mechanical hard drives rather than USB storage devices. Now it seems the two technologies are bashing into each other"
SSDs, whether they are internal or external will continue to be exorbitantly priced, so you're not getting larger storage densities for cheaper.
This development is nothing new... I use a deconstructed external USD HDD container and just swap on SATA 2.5" drives as necessary; a SSD would just be another drive to toss on there. While SSDs are significantly faster than most thumb drives, the question at the end of the day is: "Do you have the disposable income for this storage strategy?"
