If the military don't want something any more, it usually means 1 of 3 things.

- 1. They are no longer interested as they have something better.
- 2. They have finished their research and have succeeded in weaponising/miniaturising it.
- 3. The people that set it up and were milking the cash have all gone and the new guys can't work out what it does or how it works any more.

Get two hermetically sealed rooms. One with this new Mazda, and one with an all-electric car. Both cars are on roller ramps. Just to be fair, the Mazda can have it's air-intake piped in from outside.

Then grab the CEO of Mazda and give him this choice of 'driving' 20 miles in either the Mazda or the electric car.

Simple... Effective.

You're mistaking this company for the original HP. "HP" nowadays is actually Compaq. The old HP that everyone knew and loved is now (at least used to be) Aligent.
They are now Aligent and Keysight.

So anywhere you read something about "HP" doing something stupid... Think "Compaq" instead, and it all makes sense.

Your house uses more than 10kw? I really have to ask, what the heck are you doing??

I have a modest 4x2 house, with a stay-at-home wife and 2 kids. Big screen TV, and all the other creature comforts and I wouldn't even come close to use 10Kw.

In this instance I have to say 'you're doing it wrong'.
