Drones seem un-necessary. Why the return trip? Why not make the delivery vehicle....a "smart-bomb". A delivery vehicle that could be dropped from a [very] large plane and that descends in a very controlled fall to its destination. Maybe homing in on GPS, or using a small camera.. It would have just enough smarts to control its descent and make adjustments, but be disposable otherwise. Or tough enough to ship back to Amazon by "ground" shipping.
It looks like a really nice case, but too far outside my "minimalist" envelope. I do need to shake things up though; I haven't built a machine in too long. I need to bring a new one to life.
There were reasons which I cannot seem to remember right now. Fan noise maybe? But why dont cases blow air up?

Flying Cars. Uber. Flying Cars. UBER! Hmm....
So the "compressed IPv6 address" has the low order bits used to reflect an IPv4 address. But I thought the low order bits were going to be MAC address bits in IPv6? The two seem inconsistent.
If they can't hear/speak IPv6, then the Internet is going to feel like a very big empty room. Everyone needs to change to the new protocol. Everywhere. And IPv4 still has to work. Everywhere.
Every single site has a different way of giving you a way to change your password. This makes it impossible to write programs to write programs to change your password....like a password manager for instance. Imagine if you could just type in your new password into your password manager program, and it changes all the passwords it manages with one click. They could all be randomly generated and different for every site. Hints, recovery, email addresses, could all be updated with one click. With a history as to the previous versions in case something went south.
Instead of struggling with writing all the captcha's, and strength meters, and interfaces, and all the CRAP that the every site on the planet does differently. Just standardize the interface and maintenance of passwords. And then standardize the strength of the generator programs. And voila, permanent security that is controlled where it should be: in your hands.
The upper millimeter of the ocean is a very sunny place to be.
But maybe its harder to measure MilkyWay than to measure the mass of other galaxies. Still, they cannot directly measure the mass of anything out there. So they are implying the mass by looking at the light coming from them and from neighboring objects. I would rather look forward to them being proven wrong about their assumptions because we would learn more. Maybe they might learn something that could help us out here on Earth.
So I prefer to look at theories which challenge the accepted science in the hopes that new discoveries might spark new technologies here at home.
Maybe that will solve the problems. The form factor is a little different though, so not all the old toys work.
If they can be that wrong about something so fundamental, then how can they possibly claim to understand things or be right now?
I read an article recently about scientists saying the speed of light is not constant. Has their new variable speed of light calculation been plugged into all these other cosmology equations? Maybe this dark matter fudge factor would disappear and we would stop being wrong by the 1/2 the mass of a galaxy.
But maybe rising sea levels might begin to threaten some of the airstrips close to the water. Planes like this might be used as a temporary measure to deal with the loss of a tiny airport on the beach that worked until now. Some airstrips terminate in the ocean.
