Based on seeing the angst of my Indian friend when he was shopping for gold gifts for his family, there's a lot more cultural meaning than mere stored value.
This could be a boon for biologists and other researchers, in that it could capture the ultrasonic sounds animals make. The currently available equipment is very expensive.
He talks about this in the Bloomberg interview. He says it's a stupid idea, just make your 1st stage booster 20% bigger to get the same effect.

Being an activist creates lifestyle and emotional issues that are different from just having a job and a hobby. Can you recommend any helpful books or websites that give advice on dealing with those issues?
Back in the early 80's video stores also rented VCRs. Now there's 3D films on blueray, but many people don't have a 3D TV. So rent out a PASSIVE 3D tv (LG makes a good one) with a half dozen glasses. Kids parties would be a natural (or 3D porno for adult parties).
Also if he is not doing S-8 to DVD transfers and picture scanning he's missing out on a big advantage, as his customers would not have to risk mailing their orginals.
Another idea would be to get a WIDE assortment of gizmos from DX.com. Most of the items could be kept in a stockroom, if he had a few kiosks for customers to browse. Use the display for new items and kids toys.

Stith is best known for the novel "MANHATTAN TRANSFER" which starts with Manhattan being cut out, domed, and lifted into an alien spaceship.
Good grammar (and spelling) is the protocol for human communication.

If we don't follow the standard, then there is increased processing needed to interpret the communication, which is unfair to the recipient.
I agree with doing it at Costco. If you poke around their website you will see that you can download ICC profiles. Yes, Costco does color calibration.
Recently my local one had a machine problem, and they actually gave me a phone call to tell me it would be delayed.
That said, print 2 copies, one to view and one to keep in an archival, lightproof, packed with silica gel box, kept below 75 degrees, that is not to be opened for at least 30 years.

He DID make a human rated capsule, the wheel of cheese survived its Dragon flight just fine. A good argument could be made that the Shuttle was NOT human rated.
except.. in far too many sorta similar cases, ONLY massive publicity has prevented people's lives from being totally ruined. Have we forgotten the sad lessons of Julie Amero?
The man is being told he may not be allowed to be alone with his daughter for a YEAR because there is a queue? Just how many OTHER people are in a similar circumstance?
IMHO the guy should go on the offensive and sue the authorities for COLLABORATING with the pedophiles. They have evidence of crimes that they are just letting sit on a shelf.
