Why does article have an opinion tag?

I read the entire summary, and all it did was list facts. Not a single word of opinion is in there.

Now I can fully understand the reason for the iGarbage tag, as this is Slashdot, and no love of Apple products is permitted in any way, shape or form.

But opinion? huh?

I made this during the developer previews because I don't like the default puke green for most of my IM conversations.

Please heed my advice, your life literally depends on it!!

If your puke is that shade of green, you need to get yourself to a hospital right NOW. You may have a life threatening condition and need to seek expert medical advice ASAP.

Please, do yourself and your family a favour and get yourself checked out. No puke should EVER be that colour, now quit reading this and get yourself to a hospital QUICKLY!!

Telsa... you're being banned state by state, what's wrong?

Thats a very very good question. What is wrong here? Look at everywhere else in the world. ONLY in the US do these batshit crazy weird laws against carmakers selling cars to consumers exist.

Its one of the strangest laws you guys have. Its akin to banning HP from selling computers to consumers, or banning Mc Donalds from selling Big Macs directly to consumers. It makes absolutely no logical or ethical sense whatsoever. Not in the slightest.

Whats wrong?

Seriously. What is going on here?

And it's a fucking misnomer.

Artificial implies not real and intelligence implies thinking.

Artificial intelligence is so unattainable that the original definition has evolved to something meaningless.

True artificial intelligence is when a computer becomes depressed because it lost its connection to Facebook.

Since when does artificial imply "not real" ? Artificial implies "man made".

Moving all of the energy that a 85 kW-hr lithium-ion EV battery can hold into a battery in 2 or 5 minutes would require some truly dangerous amperage,
and some enormous amount of heat could be generated.

Go parallel.

The 85kW battery pack in a Tesla for instance, has a huge bunch of standard lithium ion cells in parallel and in series. Have multiple charger conductors to each charge a section of the entire pack, which reduces the amperage per conductor, but keeps the power input to the whole pack at a maximum.

Its miles only in the summary; the article is in SI units. Apparently, someone believes that folks on Slashdot either don't know what a kilometer is or are incapable of converting them to another unit of measurement.

I think its mainly because everybody thinks only Muricans read Slashdot. Hence all the US centric articles and odd measurement units.

Wait, the flu, food poisoning and pneumonia kill 70% of those infected!?

WTF, why didnt you start telling us all that beforehand! This is a global catastrophe!!! Once the flu season hits again, billions of people are gong to die! BILLIONS!

know why? because you don't care about homeless people or the starving. The only thing you really care about is making excuses for your masters to justify their horrendous profiteering on said defenseless poor people across the earth and in murica

Really, you should kill yourself.

... A high school student working on a Farnsworth-Hirsch Fusor for their science fair project, capable of accelerating tenths of amperes, detects significant numbers of neutrons-byproducts of fusion reactions-coming from the experiment. This, they say, demonstrates the viability of their approach and marks progress toward the ultimate goal of producing more energy than the fusion device takes in.

Or not.

How do you accelerate an ampere?

Progress is progress and "breakthrough"s only exist in the minds of the people who weren't paying attention to all the incremental steps that created them.

We've been "making progress" in fusion research for 50 years now and still are no where close to turning Pinocchio into a real boy.

A factor of a hundred here, a factor of a hundred there, and pretty soon you're talking about orders of magnitude.

It's easy to make big increases from a starting point near zero. When they show that they can repeat that same level of increase in similarly short periods of time then I'll pay attention. Until then it is simply a cry for funding.

So what you are implying is, that we should just cut our losses and scrap all fusion research, give the finding money to others, and never try this again.....all because progress is not fast enough for you.

Heard of political science, law science, and all that gobblygook? Slashdot is a site for nerds, the type of nerds that power this country. The type that go to work as politicians, and lawyers, it's all a science my friend and this site is geared toward all these types. Business and economics play a huge roll, too.

Also secretly technology trends flow from the military and it's actions.. All the best technology, companies incomes, R&D flows from the military and actions of the military.

Making this news worthy to the real powers that be, the real geeks, the real nerds.

Or are you just a consumer that doesn't get it?

What complete and utter rot. No, seriously. Utter tripe.

"Political Science" ? really?
"Law Science"? really?

People like you are why the word "Science" has completely lost its original meaning and is now effectively worthless as a word to describe what the word 'Science" really meant.

This article is not worthy of the Slashdot of old. It is in no way shape or form, "news for nerds, stuff that matters".

I miss Old Slashdot.
