This is just how the game is played.

Service is already metered. The pipe no matter how big, has hard limits.
Every bit that is moved across a line has a cost, it is cheap, but not free.
And you can not get everything for nothing.

Ah, the days when 'ACE' was the only 'IBM compatible', chips were ceramic, and an LS373 was required between the Eprom and the 8052.
AMD made the finest A/D converters known.
' mouses ear ' - one of the best measures of area I have ever heard used.
If I may, I will now include that in the same system of measurement that includes the unit of mass termed, the 'fuck-load.'
Respectfully, you are likely not using a 'full size' keyboard.
I learned to type on an IBM Selectric Typewriter (yeah, I'm old) - You will not find a full size keyboard at newegg.
IBM, Model M, from 1984, came with the IBM 5150, that was a masterpiece of a full size computer keyboard.
It weighed more than a heavy laptop today, made noise, and was arguably the best computer keyboard ever made. I would doubt that your keyboard has as much pitch, rake and travel of the Model M. A true full size keyboard.
It is the craftsman that can make the tool, which in this case a gun. This machine will remain inert, and make no attempt to leave the box, if left on its own.
The logical extension of this policy is for FedEx to refuse to ship drill bits, files, multi-tools, and sandpaper.
"It is a curious fact, and one to which no-one knows quite how much importance to attach, that something like 85 percent of all known worlds in the Galaxy, be they primitive or highly advanced, have invented a drink called jynnan tonyx, or gee-N’N-T’N-ix, or jinond-o-nicks, or any one of a thousand variations on this phonetic theme.
The drinks themselves are not the same, and vary between the Sivolvian ‘chinanto/mnigs’ which is ordinary water served just above room temperature, and the Gagrakackan ‘tzjin-anthony-ks’ which kills cows at a hundred paces; and in fact the only one common factor between all of them, beyond the fact that their names sound the same, is that they were all invented and named before the worlds concerned made contact with any other worlds.

Cloud computing is, at some point, not elastic.
Electricity at some point is not elastic.
Elastic at some point is not elastic.
There is a limit, a point where there are simply no resources left to provision.
Cloud or Time-Share, all you are doing is buying cycles from someone.
If there are 2 units of memory, ferrite core, disks, or chips, racks, drums, punch cards, or data centers, they are not in the same place. Items in different places are distributed.
The Cloud is time sharing, you are just buying cycles on a processor.
I understand the point, and agree that NIVDIA should have done more on the previous laptop issues. It is most likely that their chips were the weakest link of the laptop cooling.
NIVDIA did not have final control over the airflow path inside of the computer, or the pc board layout. The chances of all the failures being a single point problem is unlikely.
NIVDIA clearly pushed the limits, and it is likely the laptop design pushed other parts to or past their design limits. In the end, the fault lies with the manufacture of the end product.

I used 10$ battery drills from Harbor Freight to provide the control, gears, motor for my window shade unit. Power to spin just about anything is not a problem for these, but noise can be and issue. There is also more than a little dremel work required to get a reasonable size/shape/weight to the drill turned motor.
The next version will use the 3$ ebay arduino and wifi bits, with a usb charger wall wart. Harbor freight currently sells a $10 4.8v drill and a $ 3.50 flashlight w/ 20+ leds
Only on the high-end version
The common man version can use silver
That will define the standard terms - Someone get ANSI on the phone
Using your statement, the Police never shoot the wrong people. Every shooting is intentional.
Accidental Shooting - Yes it does exist. It is the bullet hitting something you did not expect. ' I intended to shoot the kidnapper, and not the hostage, it was a tragic accident'.
Accidental Discharge - No. It is a negligent discharge. If you pull the trigger, and the gun fires. The tool operated in the expected manner.
TRS-80 Model 100 - was a serious game changer
Created before manual typewriters went out of the mainstream, and only hit the point of not being really useful only a few years ago. Laptops becoming available to the masses finally moved them to the 'interesting but not really useful' category.
Useful full size keyboard

I have 2 that still work - but then my Newton also works as intended
