"The emerging G.fast standards for boosting last-mile broadband connections took a step forward this week with the establishment of a formal testing lab, plans for interoperability tests and the formation of an industry consortium at the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab. https://www.iol.unh.edu/ G.fast could give service providers a cheaper alternative to fiber for connecting to homes and businesses. The news about the 1Gbps technology was revealed at the Broadband World Forum in Amsterdam.""

Actually, you cannot copyright a telephone book.
Why this conflation of space and science? We stopped sending people to the bottom of the ocean too, where are the Aqua Nutters?
James Cameron went to the bottom of the ocean just 2.5 years ago.
I despise the clicky, springy sound and the activation force is higher than I like.
In college, there were some terminals with Hall-effect keyboards that I liked, wish I could remember the model.
The Amiga 1000 keyboard was pretty good but the action was a little too light.
I'd take a Sun Type 5 over a Model M any day.
Because only Java attracts bad programmers? Or is it simply observation bias? Certainly Java is not the only language which can give you the OS name.
Probably one bad programmer made the mistake of checking against "Windows 9" and assuming a match meant Windows 95 or 98, published the code, and then a bunch of other bad programmers copied the mistake.
Where? Common sense dictates not forcing the airlines to replace screens on 1,300 aircraft just because someone can't go without internet for any meaningful amount of time.
Think about how easy it would be for someone with malicious intent to bring aboard a jammer disguised as a legit electronic device. Cockpit electronics need to be hardened against interference regardless.
The new Stream laptops by default have no touchscreen
I wanted one, until I read this part. Could you really consider it a tablet if you have to plug a mouse in for it to work?
HP is using the Stream brand for both laptops and tablets.
Read a Budweiser label. It's made with barley and rice. Many other American beers include "select grains" as well.
They "select" whatever is cheapest--truth in labeling!
On the other hand, 75 is an arbitrary number. I'm 53, and will match wits with any of you.
OK, but I am not falling for that iocaine trick.
A "Carrington-level" event nowadays would most likely be much less disruptive, as back then all the early radio and spark gap stuff was well under 50 MHz, which is where almost all of the natural noise winds up in the spectrum. Ever notice, for example you can hear your shaver motor on an AM radio but not an FM one. This is not due to AM vs. FM, (well, it is a little) but mostly due to the fact that AM is about 1 MHz and FM is about 100 MHz, well above the "static line" around 50 MHz.
It would take a much stronger signal than back then to cause the same level of disruption. Not saying that can't happen, but modern radio communications are quite a bit more robust than they were back over 100 years ago.
The concern is not so much about the disruption of radio communications, but the power grid. Our society might not survive a massive, long-term (months or even years) blackout (a huge number of transformers might be destroyed all at once by the induced EMF).
You still need very pure water or you poison the process. Where's that water coming from? How do you collect the gaseous hydrogen? You still need to liquify it and all the emrittlement and cryogenic issues are still there.
Even if hydrogen gas is free, it makes no sense as an energy carrier for cars.
They don't collect the gaseous hydrogen in the electrolyzer; they soak it up with a "liquid sponge" ("a recyclable redox mediator (silicotungstic acid) " according to the article's abstract. In principle at least, hydrogen could be stored and transported in this form (a liquid sponge soaked with hydrogen).; the hydrogen can be catalytically released (wrung out of the liquid sponge) when needed. Whether such a system could be built with a practical size, weight, and cost for use in vehicles is another matter.
