Think of the scene in the matrix where operators are guiding ships in and out of Zion. There is a huge 3D interface for them to interact with.
You could eventually get right of ALL external displays. All of them. No longer would you need a tv in every room, or at all. The TV could be as big or as small as you want, any where you want.
You would no longer have to produce any external interfaces at all. Everything would be virtual, seamlessly integrated into your current environment, anywhere you are.
Imagine playing a shooting game where the enemy is seamlessly integrated into your house.
The possible applications for AR are truly astounding.
So according to this website, the device tax will bring in $29 Billion over the next 10 years.
So are they going to pass another tax to offset that missing revenue? Probably not. Any calls for repealing any revenue generating aspect of the ACA must be offset with revenue from somewhere else. As crappy as the ACA may or may not be, it is one of the few programs passed by Congress that have built in funding mechanisms.
That is why the ACA will work to some degree. But its still benefiting a particular industry (insurance) by allowing them to take 10% off the top of all healthcare spending. They have to be eliminated at some point.
Orbital is using the Russian engines for one reason and one reason only, they are procuring them at dirt cheap prices from some oligarch in Russia. That's it.
They can say how innovative they are, and how superior their design is, etc. But its all window dressing.
They build a business model based on procuring unknown hardware off the back of a shady box truck.
Teach the controversy! Right?
At some point, certain ideas simply need to be put to rest. Flat earthers, people who think storks deliver babies, you name it.
Creationists, by their own admission, will never change their hypothesis due to contradictory evidence. How can you have a debate?
Scientists aren't picking sides. That is the whole point. You develop a theory for how things happen based on collected evidence and derivations. If your hypothesis doesn't fit the data, it isn't valid.
It doesn't matter how much contrary evidence you provide against creationists. By their own definitions, they can never be falsified. How do you debate that?
Your post.... is nothing but unsubstantiated, self deluded non sense.
Where are the studies to validate you expansive insight into the behavior of motorists?
Keep looking, the only thing you are going to find is if you want to make intersections safer, you expand those timings. You do it, even if people run the yellows and reds. The only thing that matters is a statistical tracking of accident rates at each individual intersection. Not how much people violate yellow lights.
Its called the "Fuck You, I've Got Mine" management philosophy. Obviously boristdog has gotten his (he is going to be retired soon), so fuck all those lower level programmers. They deserve to eat from the dumpster.
I currently have these installed in my exterior can lights that shine down from the soffits.
They are brighter than the CFL bulbs they replaced. They have lasted 1 month so far of continuous nighttime usage. They stay on all night long and are turned off in the morning.
I have bought 8 of the 65W equivalent LED bulbs that go into can lighting, from COSTCO.
I have can lights around the outside of my house and turn them on and leave them on overnight. I then turn them off come morning.
The CFLs I had in there previously would burn out. Ever other month, I was replacing a CFL.
The LEDs I replaced them with seem brighter, use half the wattage and could be dimmable if I add a dimmer switch.
So far I am happy. If i can make it 6 months without replacing one, I will be ecstatic.
