The problem is that many devices require ridiculously high minimum threshold voltages just to work.
TI, for example, sells a remote control IR encoder that requires a supply voltage of 2.7V. That means two AA batteries in series run down to below 1.35V apiece will not run a device with that IR encoder.
A typical AA battery will deliver only about 0.40 AH before it runs down to 1.35V. That 0.40 AH is of a 2.1 AH total. That's a huge waste.
Who would have thought having trees, shrubs and other natural barriers between an airport and the people would reduce noise levels?
It's as if clear cutting was found not to work.
Who thinks that? People that have never studied noise abatement and think their cleverness is enough to allow them to intuit the science.
Trees and shrubs do very little. A thorough study from the state of Virginia showed
No matter how the sites were examined, there was no measurable difference in road noise. All differences at the more distant measurement locations were due simply to the distance effect rather than to any additional mitigating effects of trees, whether measured by planting density, age, height, or average tree diameter.
The Neo900 is the spritual successor of the Nokia N900. The new circuit board can be placed into an existing N900 for better specs (faster CPU, more RAM, LTE modem) than the original device while still maintaining fremantle (maemo 5) backwards compatibility. Alternatively, a fully assembled phone can be purchased as well. The Neo900 will be fully operational without any binary blob running on the main CPU. While the modem still requires a non-free firmware, it is completely decoupled from the rest of the device (think of a LTE usb stick you put in your laptop) and can reliably be monitored or switched off by the operating system.
You can follow the development of the project in the maemo forum, read about the specs of the device or consult the FAQ
There was no evidence of a crime, the man was never charged, but three weeks later he still has not gotten his money back.
Sean Waite, the agent in charge for the DEA in Albuquerque, said he could not comment on the Rivers case because it is ongoing. He disputed allegations that Rivers was targeted because of his race. Waite said that in general DEA agents look for "indicators" such as whether the person bought an expensive one-way ticket with cash, if the person is traveling from or to a city known as a hot spot for drug activity, if the person's story has inconsistencies or if the large sums of money found could have been transported by more conventional means.
"We don't have to prove that the person is guilty," Waite said. "It's that the money is presumed to be guilty."
Read the whole article. This is entirely unconstitutional. The fifth amendment to the Bill of Rights expressly forbids the taking of private property "without just compensation."
Saying Libertarians are "far-right" is like saying sqrt(-1) is more positive than zero.
And the computer here is a patsy called a calling station.
From the article: "but its basic approach to the game involves getting into every hand by calling bets".
You joke about gamma rays but there isn't much of difference between X rays and gamma rays from a biological perspective.
I'd be interested in what happens to those that have received several head CT scans. One head CT scan is about 20 years of background radiation.
I thought he had simply mis-spoken or was mis-quoted given that the commercials have already run for more than a year.
If the quote is accurate, then it must mean the new tax rules began in 2015.
Still, it's one year of hype leading to a launch that virtually no one showed up for.
Where did you get the idea that it had been running for just a quarter of a year?
The program was being developed in 2013 and by January 2014, they had already begun running ads.
That makes the program more than a year and a quarter old.
