Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
All this does is provide emergency shade/shelter from rain. It completely fails to provide: 1) potable water containment, 2) grey/black water containment, 3) cooking facilities, 4) sanitary facilities, 5) perishable goods storage, 6) personal goods storage, 7) any form of even temporary privacy, 8) any form of air conditioning or even ventilation, 9) any form of power for receiving news , maintaining contact, or even doing useful work outside daylight hours.
This would scale less well than tents, for equivalent protection/amenities, and in no way be a long term housing solution for families waiting for an area to rebuild, as many of the FEMA trailers turned into.
So, I'm certain that given the average demand for Slashdotter's emissions, the Earth probably has more than enough supply until the Sun expands into a red giant.
Now what time source my IoT toaster will use, to brown my bread for exactly 23.5439263 seconds, starting at precisely 13minutes and 4.5098 seconds after local dawn... THAT I am concerned about!
a service to have charging trucks come out to you to you should you run out of charge (maybe even heading to the point where you would run out of charge before it even happens so that there's no wait)
Hmm... I wonder if there is money to be made with some sort of "in air refueling" type scheme. huge truck consisting mainly of batteries or charged super caps pulls up behind a Model S, extends a rigid charging plug (appropriately penis shaped), and inserts it into a port mounted in the center of the rear trunk. Rapid charge exchange, credit account is debited, and the truck pulls away to go to the next customer. All performed at highway speeds...

So... Tax forms really are inevitable?
I'll just leave this here: Ring Species

I'm sorry, but what are they planning to do if their analysis suggests little Timmy is a bit depressed? Is a random post on his timeline from some stranger asking if he needs a hug really going to change anything for him? Or is FB just going to increase the rate of advertising and only show him ads for the Suicide Prevention Hotline?
No previous Windows has ever done anything so mindlessly wrong.
That is just factually incorrect. The list of mindlessly wrong things previous versions of Windows have done is worthy of it's own miniseries.
Be very careful getting rid of them, because once they are gone, re-establishing them is incredibly difficult.
The only reason the US government can maintain its pro-war stance is the idolization of the military, both men and machines, and the romanticization of war. It's very hard to make machines killing machines romantic or heroic. Event Battle Bots had to make the show as much about the builders/drivers as the competition.
Take away the romance and "heros" and all you've got left is pure patriotism and bigoted hatred. Those can take you a long way, but eventually people start noticing the cost, that today is justified with "we must keep our brave boys and girls properly supplied".
