Also a fair point. I cannot believe is 2015 and Google still hasn't figured this out.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
No really an apology for google though, more of a "here is how google royally screwed up in their relationships with carriers that Apple and Microsoft seem to have gotten right".
Depends on the car. Jeep Wranglers are not bad.
Somebody never had a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon.
Worst phone experience ever. All parties involved should be ashamed.
True, but if the police have you, and you refuse to unlock the phone (and Apple says they cannot), I suspect they can get your fingerprint pretty easily.
I believe this is correct.
I've not run into a limit, not sure what it is.
I have no doubt most people's are very hackable.
Mine is a 15 character complex password.
Well, and a thumbprint, which I suspect is the more likely attack vector.
I'm all for nuclear, I guess the part I don't get is why solar has no part. Maybe not from an industrial power grid scenario but I know two people who are supplying most (in one case all) of their home's power via solar. Are they doing something wrong? Is this hurting the chance for nuclear somehow?
Errrr, "youtube instead of slashot" rather.
> But because of people like yourself--who are too lazy to figure this out for yourself
Ok, did I miss a declaration of a douchbag contest? Did I accidentally click on youtube instead of facebook? Get over yourself and participate in the conversation like an adult, all I did was ask some questions I'm not out on the street marching against your views.
Interesting information, a bit overshadowed by unnecessary dickishness.
German might disagree, they are at 5% now and projecting to be at 25% by 2050.
Solar will never have a chance to become 20% of our power generation unless people try, you have kind of a chicken and egg problem there.
We now turn to Admiral Ackbar who I believe has a comment on this development....
> Solar accounts for 0.17% of our electric production in this country, tripling it won't make any difference.
Is this counting only energy company production or people/companies reducing their consumption from the grid by augmenting it with solar? If so, how?
> The sooner environmentalists get off the solar kick and focus on reality, the sooner we can replace fossil fuels with something else. (Which in this case is nuclear, since it is the only option left)
There can be only one?
I don't want useless add on application/browser extension/etc being installed when I chose to download something. No matter how much vetting and transparency, this is simply wrong.
