That short term use doesn't even touch the physiological impact of extended use, hours per day, days per week, weeks per year and of course years, as the likely very poor outcomes that would result. Most people don't even being to realise how tiring and painful it is to continuously bob and weave you head about for hours on end. It really does put paid to the idea of sitting back at the end of the day and gaming, phsyically not possible with VR unless you turn off motion detection and rely on hand controllers to do it instead and just use the VR display for immersion.

It would make serious sense to produce base model immersion on VR displays, with no motion detection or anything else, just a plug in immersive 3D display, this for people who dislike the experience and motion sickness, people not interested in spending that kind of money (double plus saving, greater unit production significantly reduces cost per unit, this driven by a much cheaper unit generating the bulk of sales, especially if it manages a USB connection and the appropriate Android or Apple software) and people who just want to sit back or even lie back (possible to lie down in a comfortable bed gaming with no motion control VR). It would be silly to release just the high priced version without mentioning the impending future release of a budget 3D immersion version and appropriate controllers with smart phone connection and software.

Actually the whole thing is backwards misinformation. What is really happening is that US authorities want the right to wiretap anyone in the five eyes group upon the flimsiest of excuses and extend that out into typical aggressive US search warrants, violent arrests, persecution via prosecution and fuck justice, they just want to fuck people up because they annoyed them. This is just the bullshit roundabout way of getting there. So everything about being a reciprocal arrangement and then forcing it upon other countries because a currently very corrupt government in the US and UK agreed to it.

The US are desperate to be able to force US style law en-FORCE-ment on other countries, so they can harshly interrogate anyone who pisses them off.

Smarter purchasing makes more sense. Silly to go looks and I don't know 'er' higher price for ego, when the device will not be serviceable in the location you intend to use it, that is quite simply a silly purchase. So using the car analogy, yeah buying a car that can only be serviced overseas, after you ship it there and it maybe gets there, they repair and ship it back at your expense and it maybe gets back to you. But wait it doesn't stop there, we all know the syndrome of the missed a fault and it still doesn't work properly and you have to go through that all again, by this time having spend maybe three times the price of a new phone that can be serviced locally, sticking with that phone that you have already bought to maintain phone services through the months of failed attempt at phone repair.

Not quite accurate. Pretend rich guy is trying to stay pretend rich by rebuilding the pretend value of what makes him pretend rich. All marketing, reward is in pretend currency which will prove problematic but the pretend rich guy can hardly offer a reward in a real currency, kinda brings down the illusion of their pretend wealth, if they acknowledge the pretend currency will attract competitors. Like all ponzi schemes, they eventually inevitably implode and with them the pretend wealth.

Seriously how ingenious can you be. It is for the American courts to shut the fuck up and mind their own business. The only court with any jurisdictions is the British court for jumping bail and the Swedish court for the claimed cases. However both legal systems should be held liable for their purposeful corruption of the legal system in order to pander to NATO and the US government. The Australian diplomatic service should also be held liable for abandoning an Australian citizen to the blatant corruption of the US government.

The US in the most illegal fashion imaginable, in fact for the majority beyond imagining, kidnapped people from all over the world and disappeared them, torturing many to death in the process, and then the few survivors were illegal held at a base seized from the Cuban people with the threat of total annihilate them, should the Cuban people make any attempt to recover the illegal seized land.

It is up to US courts to end the stupendous corruption within the US three level legal system, rich, middle class, poor. It is up to the US courts to end blatant political corruption of those courts in all levels with hugely corrupt appointees. It is up to US courts to fuck off and stick the fucking mess in their own country and leave the rest of the world alone.

The system does not require any AI in it's running it requires intelligence in it's setting up. Detectable patterns of communication and control elements. The sources, the timings and the conjunction of similar network transmission types. The idea is to block anything that is not allowed and then tracked what is blocked to ensure reliable data transmissions are allowed. You build up the system by trialling blocking and gradually building up a library or memory sic of allowed communications patterns, timings (how often per source) and correlations (how many sources at the same time). There are certain key instructions, commands, data elements that are non normal communications and relate to specific security threat events (good needs to be separated from bad).

Each country would most emphatically need to create and implement it's own as no country can be trusted with that. Just as no foreign country should ever be trusted with an armed and munitioned occupation because it is always a serious and extreme threat (zero oaths of loyalty by the occupational forces and no country would allow it's own citizens to join it's own defence forces without an oath of loyalty, so seriously, why allow a foreign occupation force without those oaths of loyalty, seriously What The Fuck?!?).

You also jumped the gun quite a bit. Now the respective countries governments have to review what the selected corporate representatives from each country agreed to and either accept it or reject it, no changes allowed. Pretty much solid indication is, it is going to be rejected and collapse, at which time the lobbying from corporations and the threats from the US government will start.

The retraction by Science of a 12-year-old paper based on research funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) breaks new ground in what a federal agency can require scientists to do to set the record straight—and the role that journals play in weeding out flawed papers.

I did note one thing in the launch. When the guy handed him the keys, Elon stopped to look him in the eyes and say thankyou, before moving on with the rest of the launch. As for the cancelled order, with so many customers waiting for the chance, that car could likely be sold ten times over.
