So your answer is to live more luxuriously in the aim of causing starvation. Nice.

No, the $561,000 should be compared to the cost of smashing the botnet. What the botnet arseholes make is of purely idle interest.
This only begins to make sense when you don't have to lift all the raw materials out of the gravity well anyway.
Think asteroid mining. Then think refining, manufacturing, assembly, QA, and everything else that needs to be done before the parts for your spaceship can turn up at the dry dock.
More like Apartheid.
I chose mine because going into space is on my bucket list.
Or if I can clone from dead tissue, maybe Einstein.
I dunno exactly, but it's bigger than 4 inches.
Nah, go with Cristopher Walken.
I reckon if they had to put one in every bloody car made they could do it for less than $200.
Why would they build a fire escape as stairs? Obviously they would make it a slide.
I hope they put in some chest-high walls.
The restaurant will sort out the lighting and provide filtering glasses. Done!
While I'm not a big fan of app censorship generally, I don't see the objection to having Apple, Google etc block apps which have no purpose other than letting people drink-drive.
If the wi-fi fails, you just fall back to the data gathered by your own vehicle and drive more conservatively.

I just made a decision on what format I was happiest with, and the rest came from there. Having decided that ePub would be best for books and PDF for magazines/other stuff, I also chose to specify that both must be unencrypted and looked for a store that sold them in the UK and a device that would read both.
WHSmith sells ePub books, but they're encrypted: so I buy them there and decrypt them myself, and keep them backed up on my PC and online. I went with the Sony Reader PRS-350 as the reader, and have been pretty happy with it. When I eventually replace it, I'll probably just be looking for something else that can read unencrypted epub abd pdf files.
