I strongly suggest you also block all the common advert servers such as doubleclick as they consume far more bandwidth than the updates do.
These are thin film solar technology that has less than a 3 year lifespan. they lose nearly 30% of their power output withing 8 months. It is the same junk as the solar panels sold at Harbor Freight.
Glass is $0.25 a square foot. Solar Cells that have any real efficiency and longevity cost $2.25 a square foot. The bog point is there is barely 10% offset on cost, and these same windows will generate less than 20% of what a normal panel can generate so their economy is even less. Add in losses by being vertical and not tilted to the sun and they will generate 5% of the electricity than a standard cell on the roof will.
So yes, he is missing a big point, these things are worthless as a technology unless used on vaery large mostly glass buildings as a supliment to the existing solar generation system if the contractor can afford a 500% increase in cost of the windows.
They would have to be horribly inefficient to allow most of the light through. So much that they would be useless in any installation other than an all glass high rise.
That pesky Laws of Physics getting in the way again.
Here's an idea, just stay out of my way, State of California, thanks.
He was confused becasue it's called 'news'. How the hell is he supposed to know the 'NEWs' will be about new things
You know, it's not nice of you to pick on the simple minded.
"the fact that the county appears ready to speculate with no confirmed facts is actually very concerning."
That's human nature, in every country. It takes energy to think critically, and most people don't.
becasue they would.t put in place a way to recognize an increase in phone shut offs?
All the alarmist BS on
yes. it's extremely high, and very problematic and a huge drain on resources.
well then, ti's a good thing the database was design with protection from idiots like you.
That does nothing for the vast majority of stolen phones sold overseas.
It's a big problem, and a kill switch makes sense; however that doesn't mean it as to happen.
" so many people who were in touch with what is going on in our country and in our world."
i.e. Confirmed your bias.
that's very short sighted and technically ignorant.
But, hey that never stopped yo before.
Tisk Tisk, blaming "christians" for what the "holy roman church" did is wrong. Please learn your history.
The vatacan actually has the largest stash of bitcoins in the world, it's in the vaults next to the holy Grail and the ark of the covenant.
I pop out the sim all the time with the phone on. you can not "brick" a phone by doing this.
