Will the standard contain provisions for unskippable items? Then I won't buy an UHD player.

That's rich coming from them.
Meanwhile in that era, us Apple users plugged in & played with our NuBus cards without ever having to fiddle with IRQs. Doing things right the first time saved us a lot of aggravation.
(Get off my lawn, etc. )
TFTitle is stupid: none of this is a secret, every car manufacturer that does this readily admits it to the motoring press.
I, for one want my car to be as quiet as possible so I'd want the option to disable it. Or I can do what I've done with my current car: replace the stereo.
That's a solution only if you accept the drawbacks of being a contractor. Suddenly you have to do acquisition, you're a business so your taxes get 10x more complicated (e.g. VAT), etc.
We're seeing some industries moving towards an all-contractor model over here (.nl). Postal delivery and the building trade for instance. Some contractors do well for themselves, but there's a large number of them subsisting below the poverty line. As a contractor they're no longer protected by employment laws so they get screwed over no end. Especially in the building slump of the past few years people were agreeing to work for a pittance, not realizing the consequences in time. And if they don't get a contract, they're business owners so not eligible for unemployment benefits either. Meanwhile the contract prices are under pressure as workers from low-wage countries migrate here and accept conditions that result in a wage that is livable in their home country, but not here.
This is a gigantic poverty trap, and an end run around employment law and the unions by building companies. IMO a service/contract culture is not something we should wish for.
Hardly unique, because Apple claims the same thing.
Interesting, didn't know that.
does it run OS X?
Seriously: this is a nice-looking laptop, and one I'd prefer to the current Macbook Pro line due to those not having user-upgradeable HD and RAM.
TFA says: "Using a light beam to charge a smartphone could be as quick as many wired chargers, the researchers found, depending on the size of the PV panel."
Efficiency is going to depend on the efficiency of the PV panel in the phone, but at 20% it's a long way off from the efficiency of a wired charger.
The lengths to which people will go to avoid plugging in a wire still amaze me.
The point of an open system was not to dump the hydraulic fluid overboard after use, but to not need a pump that can return and reuse the fluid (and a system to power the pump, and fuel for that etc).
The main hydraulic system on the F9 (for gimbaling the engine nozzles) uses RP-1 (i.e. rocket fuel) as its hydraulic fluid. Spent fluid from that system goes into the fuel tank.
The fins are driven by a separate system at the top of the stage, if they pumped the spent RP-1 overboard you'd have flammable liquids running down the stage, I'm pretty sure they don't want to do that. Returning the RP-1 to the fuel tank is unlikely (needs an insulated pipe around the outside, next to the cold LOX tank). So probably a separate waste tank near the fins.
Could you please let me know which Govt Department I go to in France to apply for the location I am allowed to live in?
I seem to be having trouble finding it - hell - last time I was there I just lived where I damn well wanted to and could afford..
The word 'afford' is key here. If all you can afford is the lowest-rent housing, then that's where you end up. That's how many large European cities ended up with immigrant ghettos.
Dictionary entry or not, lede is a recent 'invention' by people who should know better than to make up new words when the old one was clear and unambiguous. See also "when it bleeds, it leads".
It's lead, not lede.

You're confusing technology with "currently in production". Several companies in the US posess all of the technology needed to put humans in space. They just haven't produced and flown spacecraft yet.
It is a political issue, pure and simple. The transition between the Shuttle and new manned systems was planned badly, allowing a several-year capability gap.
