Because it is clearly simpler to put an entire planet into underground recording studio under area 51?
Left turn = three right turns. Three times safer, right?
We (almost) have self-driving cars. Aircraft generally self-drive themselves almost all time now. Why not have self-driving aircraft?
Seems a lot safer for now. Pilot can enter anytime if an emergency of non-standard situation is declared (and verified).
Or as Scully heard, "Trust no one."
Or simply using the saved energy from the software update to zap any range-anxious driver.
I'm on laptop speakers and $15 sony headphones, and well, right next to it sits the $800 guitar amp+speaker cabinet.
Whoa, good list. There are also very good methods to recognize people by non-facial features (especially the ears are something that computers can "fingerprint" very easily and reliably), but I haven't seen that in any software package yet.
Postgrad students at our faculty were developing face-recognition stuff that can easily and percisely tag almost all photos we were able to stuff in it. In microseconds. I guess it would be really weird if facebook didn't have this technology available long time ago (it isn't really that hard either).
Next up: The Wget Guy manually downloads a "hand-tailored" copy of wikipedia and sells it for living on DVDs.
I mean, If it's already slowed down like this, why not just gently land the rocket into the ocean and take it up with some prepared nets/ropes? IMHO it can save a lot of headache from trying to hit a platform this small.
If the water getting in the rocket is problem, what about a gigantic sheet of plastic on the water surface? (still cheaper and more reliable than hitting the landing pad).
Sir, you already have +5. Imagine you have +6 now.
On the other side, I wouldn't want to see the situation when some country (say, U.S.) takes bitcoin as alternative currency and starts to defend its value with an army.
Yeah. Moreover, if UK Ballistic Police Department couldn't do that, who else would? Nobody, obviously!
I saw like dozens of videos of successful printed guns, did they completely miss that?
From a bit different perspective (largely unix-practical) -- when not having enough resources, you are forced to keep stuff simple. That's usually good, isn't it?
Anyway, I always wondered why is OpenSSL such a bloated pile of code. It does one god damn gazillion things tightly packed. Now, TLS implementation itself is pretty simple, Key management tools are pretty simple, PKCS verification tools are pretty simple, mathematics behind that is pretty simple, commandline tools for quickusing the maths are simple, relationship between those entities ("APIs") are well-defined and usually clear. Who stuffed all of it into one project?!

Tables with improvement percentage readings will be less excellent.
Real Programmers think better when playing Adventure or Rogue.
