Like all the rest of the modern corporate scum, AAPL refers to us as "consumers". What a filthy word. The decline in the U.S. standard of living parallels the use of that word... OBTW: Mozilla is changing the name of FireFox. They are going to call it StinkyPig. ;-D

GREAT POINT!!! of the reasons I still carry a cute little Canon camera with me. Using the Boston bombing as an example, the police, all 500 million of them there would be salivating at the prospect of killing all the "evidence gathering" cameras...and you watch, the "public servants" will immediately try to find some excuse to get their handsets exempted. Remember you heard it here first... ;-o

Good for who? Them or us??? One of the keystones of freedom is the right to privacy. Why do you think the State so jealously guards it's privacy? The promise of transparency is a complete fraud and if you don't think DARPA will not send it's precious little authentication scheme straight to DHS, NSA, and all the rest of the TLAs, you are kidding yourself...

Wouldn't work with wires. Line losses would eat up all the power. Perhaps if LEO microwave power relay stations became a reality, useful energy could be moved from one side of the planet to the other. Don't hold your breath... Most likely, we will go to amorphous distribution systems where each business or household would have some combination of wind, solar, or fuel cell power that is bi-directionally tied to a local distribution level grid. (already in place). When you have an outage, you sponge off your neighbors until you are up again and then either pay back in kind or get a bill for the power. Also for local grid security, there would be a fuel cell at the distribution substation to cover widespread outages. The bulk transmission system is based on 80 year old technologies. It needs to be retired!!!
