How do you shoot up twelve people in the middle of Paris then get away? Wtf?
What's more, it all happened at place that was supposedly under "police protection"...
Docker containers are like VM's but smaller. I think what it means is that a Windows server / VM will be able to run dozens-hundreds of Windows micro-services inside a Docker for Windows infrastructure. Or basically once finished you as a developer can now write Windows apps that don't need to install and will run on any Windows, no more version dependencies! Just like Docker is doing for Linux today.
Yeah, but wouldn't it have to be rewritten from scratch on Windows? AFAIK there is no chroot, cgroups or anything like that in Windows (I guess there might be equivalents). And I have no idea what you would do about the registry blob in this scenario.
it emits the 1.5MWh over a period of 32 days, not one hour
FYI 1.5MWh running for 32 days is 1152MW.
No, it's a little shy of 2 kW.
If all it is, is a battery, then by itself it would be worth almost as much as cold fusion, as it can store and produce 600+ horsepower for an hour (1.5MW hours).
It doesn't store it, it has a power supply (even officially). And it emits the 1.5MWh over a period of 32 days, not one hour. And oh yeah, it never seems to work unless Rossi is present to "supervise" the thing.
Isn't "Cutting the Wind" cheating?
Isn't anything is cheating or not cheating relative to a constant set of rules that are applied consistently? The current set of rules happens to allow wind-cutting and refreshment points along the track, but not 1000m downhill slopes or using a motorcycle.
That would be Cold Fusion. The type of fusion where the energy goes most nearly into electricity.
That's aneutronic fusion, not cold fusion (it tends to be even hotter than neutronic fusion).
I think Musk just jumped the shark.
How so? He's been saying this for years now, in one form or another. And as a society you're lucky to have some crazy people like Musk to make up for legions of bean-counter types.
I suppose the number of trips to deliver a million humans to the Red Planet could be reduced if they could be convinced to breed once they arrive there.
That would defeat the "genetically diverse" requirement.

Unfortunately, this is a total show stopper for full device encryption.
The probe is in orbit around the comet, and a quite peculiar orbit too. So regardless of what the comet does, from the reference point of the probe, it is "rotating".
I don't think so. The comet may not be rotating on its own. Which would mean that all patches of its surface rest in an inertial frame (at least if you ignore the rotation around the sun -- which shouldn't have much influence during the short timespan of a landing). If that were the case, it would make the landing easier because the lander's velocity relative to the surface would stay constant during unpowered flight phases.
I never understood those head trackers. I mean, if I have a screen in front of me and turn my head to the right, then the display may very well change but I'm now looking to the right so won't see it (or need to look out of the corner of my eye). If instead I have a bank of monitors, so that I could see any adapted view - it wouldn't need to change the display!
