I think it makes more sense to make a space elevator from LOE. All the advantages of a lunar elevator, but actually in a useful location,
Running the devices hotter should increase the decay rate...
Lens Flare is such a stupid gimick. It is something 'cool' the game designers can introduce but it destroys the immersion.
I worked on one of the RF ICs used in smart meter applications. The power is only a little bit more than a garage door opener, and it is below 1GHz (Microwave ovens are ~2.45GHz).
Well, I looked into the amount of water an equivalent coal-powered generator would use. It turns out 1GW of coal power uses 13500 acre-ft of water (4.4billion gal) per year, vs the 600 acre-feet for the solar project.
You are forgetting about how Intel used illegal methods to block AMD from sockets. These include monetary incentives to ONLY sell Intel. Look at how much money Intel funneled to Dell.
Because Apple has now surpassed Microsoft in the evil index.
I've heard that superconductors not only have no electrical resistance, but the have no thermal resistance too. That would mean superconductors have a constant temperature across them; is this true?
Does it have to be an official iBag?
Ah, then that is where I come to a different conclusion than you. After 5+ years of experience, I see the experience and capability matter much more than whether an engineer has an MSEE or a BSEE.
In my experience, I have seen that engineers with a BSEE and the additional 2 years of real world experience to be much more useful than MSEE degrees. And it seems like a greater percentage of MSEEs were useless types who could study/test well but not actually deliver any solutions.
I look at the return on investment on a MSEE, and I don't see it. You lose 2 years of income, which you take off the end of your career when you earn the most (100+K/yr), and pay an $50+K for the two years of tuition. You wind up in an >$300K hole, and the premium from having an MSEE doesn't really compensate.
Let me ask you as a hiring manager: which would you prefer, an engineer with a BSEE and 2 years of experience doing the job you need, or someone with an MSEE who may have taken a class about what you need?
Its not like the current Administration is concerned about the rights of its citizens, they are making Bush Jr look like a staunch civil liberties advocate
Someone's memory is awfully short. Renditions, torture, and the Patriot Act are just some of the actions of Bush Jr. I just don't see any significant expansion into civil liberty violations by Obama. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't think Obama has done anything notable to improve on the civil rights violations introduced by Bush, but I don't see anything like what Bush cooked up being introduced either.
Until the streaming media companies are purchased by the ISP (or vice versa).
And how many corporate execs get to hit the golf course for a 10:00 tee off?
Trusting a union is safer than trusting a corporation. For every corrupt union position I can show a dozen worse corporation actions.
