The only idiot without a clue appears to be you.

Microsoft is handling it poorly. Every other company has already sent spam mails asking individuals to subscribe to get continued spam. Only Microsoft is the only company that finds this automated message to difficult to incorporate. ..and since you love spam so much how about you post your email addresses on the forum so we can oblige.

You self-absorbed, inconsiderate, halfwit! If you can see it, sure as shit so can everyone around you.. You think your dimmer switch is making a mini black hole which is sucking in light? That would be the only way your phone isn't visible.

It only takes a moment to get distracted from a movie. 5 seconds is at least 100 moments.

Get out of my cinema!

Honestly this seems too good to be true. I see this endeavour never making it past a trial phase as per the below:

Disclaimer: I haven't done too much research on the subject past viewing that video that went viral a week ago.

1) Capital Cost: Looks expensive. Think of all the trenching/corridors that would need to be built. Never mind the electrical infrastructure which I think would need to be upgraded. The incremental cost to add all this to existing and even new road development is intuitively high. Especially since those corridors need to be accessible by humans. Now you need to talk about regulations, air quality, distance to exits, etc etc etc.
2) Maintenance Cost: Ever wonder why there are deep gouges along the roads? Some of them are from broken axles which have a tendency get jammed into the pavement. Other times its caused by overloaded trucks dragging the corner of a low trailer through the pavement for 100's of miles. One truck could potentially destroy hundreds of thousands of these panels in one trip.
I also have a feeling that you will need more maintenance crews to maintain such roads.
3) Magic is Magic: This whole fad solves all the worlds problems including cancer. (Sarcasm). Sounds too good to be true. Generally it is.

I have a lot of technical concerns as well relating to electrical infrastructure, performance of cells, required cleanliness of cells, vehicle safety and so on. I have a nagging feeling this idea was peddled to most investors who dismissed it on the same above grounds and the inability to monetize this idea. It seems by approaching an optimistic (hopeful) and uneducated public they found a million dollars worth of sucker money as I don't see this project fulfilling its claims.

However, just because I am skeptical doesn't mean I want this idea to fail. Someone needs to take steps to save the planet.

Dream on,

My favourite part: "Just a phone.." That can cost nearly a thousand bucks to replace. This should be worth the 5-10 minutes of time for the police to salvage with known GPS coordinates. The problem here is that law abiding citizens get victimized twice: First by the thief. Then by law enforcement that doesn't take the steps protect the property of those same citizens.
