Couldn't. Agree. More. There's a reason I've ditched my iphone and will be soon to ditch my ipad.... not that they're not totally cool devices, just that Apple are acting like such douches. I remember how much I used to hate on Microsoft for not being open, not allowing everyone to play and now here we are, Apple are doing the EXACT same thing. Thank fuck Android is open source, this bullshit ends here.

When you say energy losses due to transportation, are you just talking about transmission over wires?

How about conversion to something like hydrogen?

There are lots of desert areas that I'm sure could be used for energy generation, at least it would be better than polluting our way to global death....

Are you having fun yet?
