I don't see how the "mainstream" market would really have a need for 3d printers. Those who are hobbyists will always find a use for it, but "mainstream?" Maybe I don't understand what the author means by that.
We use a 3d printing service at work when we are prototyping hardware and light fixtures and such. Those services are getting cheaper and I see that as the way the "mainstream"market market will go. The only thing I have found to make is custom lego mini figure accessories for the kids.

Except that the 2 "habitats" that Bigelow launched are not habitable. They were for test launching/inflating, but they are not set up with any sort of life support. Those are still in development.
It'd be great if Bigelow can carry on and I'd love to see Bigelow and SpaceX do something together.
I haven't heard much of them the past few years, except that they are currently developing a habitat that would be rated for manned missions. I hope they are moving along with it.
Although the next ting they should do is hire a web developer that isn't stuck in the late '90s. Cheese.

Personally, I have a better idea: Let's just accept the fact that life is complicated and there are no easy answers, regardless of how fun it may be to blame those evil nasty rich folks.

So, your "better idea" is just to let bad shit(decisions) happen unaccountably, because life is complicated?

+ - Las Vegas Sands sites breached; employee personal info posted

luckymutt (996573) writes "Hackers breached the websites of all Las Vegas Sands Corp. casinos on Tuesday morning, and the home pages of some of the world's largest casinos remained down through the day.
The sites were replaced with an image of a world map highlighting the locations of LVS resorts, marked with fire. The hackers also posting the names, contact info and social security numbers of key LVS employees.
The Morning Call website was able to post a screen shot before LVS was able regain control of their sites, replacing it with a "down for maintenance" placeholder.
This appears to be in response to the comments by Las Vegas Sands' CEO Sheldon Adeleson several months ago:
In October, he floated the idea of dropping a nuclear bomb on Iran, saying strength was the only thing the country understands. During a forum at Yeshiva University in New York City, he imagined what might happen if the U.S. began negotiations over the country's nuclear program by launching a strike on the Iranian desert.

"Then you say, 'See! The next one is in the middle of Tehran. So, we mean business. You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development,' " he said."
