It's not meaningless. It's a rate of change, just like m/s^2. As such, the car should pop the breaker somewhere around 108 or 144 minutes of charging, depending on whether the outlet is a 15A or 20A outlet, and assuming the line voltage is a solid 120V. 108 minutes is the point when the power draw would reach 1800W and at 144 minutes, it should hit 2400W, which, at 120V are 15A and 20A respectively, assuming that there is no reactive power involved.
Yes, I could. Unfortulately, adapters tend to add one more place where things can go wrong, and they increase the stress on the ports where they are used. I just want to end the proliferation of new styles of USB connectors. So it won't go in both ways? Turn it over! This isn't rocket science.
If we used that same plug here in the US, we'd probably rate it at ten times the current*! We have 50A 240V plugs that are very definiately a lot flimsier, with prongs
(*The UK plugs, for the uninitiated, are rated 13A at 240V and have solid brass prongs that are about 4mm thick and 7mm wide. They are a beauty of engineering.)
Maybe not as bad as that, but a new USB connector does mean yet another USB cable to carry in your go-bag. I already carry four different kinds.
That doesn't surprise me.
Australia is a fairly big country with large expanses of nothing where free-to-air satellite makes perfect sense. On the other hand, here in the US . . . oh, wait . . .
No. Obamacare is crony capitalism.
Prolly wanna turn down the squelch setting on your sarcasm detector a little . . . .
Apple put a reasonable user interface into place. Blackberry did not. The only thing BB has going for them, in my view, is the presence of a keyboard, but the UI just really, really sucks.
I am not sure why you would think it might be . . .
Irrelevant. Everything that is on facebook was put there by somebody who chose to put it there. If they put it on public display, then they chose to put it on public display. It's published, therefore it is public. This public information is available to anybody and everybody. As long as the school does not require the students to friend them or turn over passwords, what's the issue?
That said, this could teach students two very important things: reputation management and subterfuge. These are good things to know in an emergent surveillance state.
I don't really need the graphics capability beyond enough to run a GUI. I use that machine to DJ. As long as it can keep the waveform displays on screen reasonably up to date, it's good enough.
10) don't profit because you can't really take lobbying bribes for a distributed lawmaking system.
Not all profit is monetary. If we gain though building a better system, that's profit.
