But you also need a computer, for school, work, facebook, whatever else, everybody has one nowadays. So the choice is between a $800 computer vs a $400 computer plus $400 console.
Just like Samsung would never stop selling chips and screens to Apple. Oh wait.
(and by its speed, it looks like it runs on a laptop in a mother's basement)
Quite simply, it's less comfortable to wear. Considering how much you spend at work, even minor differences in comfort can be very important and well worth the salary difference.
Even though this is really a non-story, it's still much more interesting than Bitcoin.
Have you tried PlusFive, the link in my sig? It looks a lot like the old Slashdot interface.
In other words, it's ok to place this directly agains the wall, because the shape ensures it cannot be placed agains the wall. Well done.
The Exxon Valdez spill killed (from my quick search) an estimated 200,000 to 300,000 birds, about what this would kill in 10 years or so at mid-20k birds killed per year. So, build 10 of these plants (or larger with even more roasting capacity) and you have the equivalent (in bird deaths) of an Exxon Valdez oil spill each year. A wise sage once said "It's not easy being green."
The Exxon Valdez is something which should not have happened at all. Whereas this is a consequence of "normal operation".
This kind of thinking works out so well with nuclear.
You are off by one order of magnitude, it is 70 patents / worker / year.
Why is this post in Lisp?
The important word being "can". It only helps if people use it, and in my experience they don't.
Pirate mp3's? Pay damages of up to 600.000 times the cost of the album.
Don't pay $3M in wages? Pay damages of less than the amount owed.
Backups need backups too. Your data isn't safe unless there are backups all the way down.
But seriously, having two copies is enough most of the time, provided they are somewhat separate (i.e. not on two identical, connected NAS machines).
Backup? What do people usually use NAS for, I always thought it's mostly for ripped/torrented movies and backups of other computers. Neither of these need backups.
