What can possibly be bad about using a device that helps you to learn to shoot better? Detailed feedback seems to be a more effective method than a scattershot approach of pushups and getting yelled at.
Those "quick scans of the instruments" are quicker when you can glance at the HUD (which can be done without refocusing) instead of having to look down at the dashboard and refocusing your eyes.
"quick scans of the instruments" are the whole reason the HUD was invented.
So, it's the spiritual successor to Lotus Notes, then?
The battery pack for a Prius is carefully managed to stay in a charge state that allows for the largest possible number of recharge cycles (IIRC it stays between 50 and 80% charge). An electric-only vehicle doesn't have that option at the moment.
The revolution is in being easily able to create complex shapes. Traditional manufacturing methods for these sort of parts fall in one of two categories:
1. Labor-intensive using simple tools. E.g. Welding the frame from stock pipe and plate.
2. Amenable to mass production, but at a huge initial cost (for tools). E.g. casting, forging, stamping.
3D printing allows complex shapes to be created from a CAD model without lots of labor. This is great for small production runs (i.e. runs too small for 2. to be cost-effective).
I see a number of highly-rated comments recommending using Google for mail rather than the ISP's mail service.
This surprises me, given the privacy implications. I can reasonably assume my ISP won't read my mail other than for spam filtering. Google, on the other hand, will use your mail as input for their advertising machine.
The main thing that keeps me from buying a smartphone is that I have two choices: pay through the nose or accept an OS made by an advertising company. If these guys find a way to decrapify Android, I'm in.
and is using the reverse of the tried-and-true (when you're lost: bury a length of fiber, wait for the inevitable backhoe to show up).
If it's Google, it ain't free. You pay for it with your privacy.
In addition to the official ESA news channels, there's a Twitter account by the name of SarcasticPhilae.
(Can't believe I'm recommending anything from Twitter, I suppose this is the exception that proves the rule)
So what you're saying is, "that's no moon!"
This is bad advice. I've had an alkaline explode when I attempted recharging it.
So this device fits around an alkaline battery. I've got a Wensn decibel meter that has a battery compartment big enough for alkaline AAs, but too small for any of my rechargeable AAs. The rechargeables have a slightly bigger diameter (the difference is 0.2-0.3 mm).
So there's a chance alkaline batteries using this device won't fit.
Their proposal is similar to what American scientists did with their NEAR spacecraft, which hadn't been designed to land on an asteroid but was successfully eased onto the surface of Eros, where it operated for a very short time.
