But I like a fresh bowl...
... that an actual cop will PULL YOU OVER to issue a ticket. The speeding behavior stops, and the roads become safer, at least while your car is parked at the side of the road, and hopefully remain safer when you proceed, suitably chastised. The cop has a chance to ensure that you are not inebriated or otherwise unfit to drive before he allows you to proceed. If you choose to speed again and he catches you again, you get stopped and a second ticket is issued. Repeat as necessary.
Issuing tickets based purely on observation fail to stop the illegal behavior and do little to make the roads safer, until much much later, when the ticket catches up with you in the mail (assuming a ticket is enough to change your behavior).
'cause everybody trusts the DHS.

this is bad, I just know it.
If Obama says "We missed you," it might not mean what you think it means.

that was either a Chinese satellite on a close flyby, or the joke.
Good luck with that. First you have to pack it up in the ORIGINAL packaging, then fill out a Return For Credit form, and then wait at least 10 days for processing...
THEN maybe you can claim your credit.
I travel anywhere in the world, plug my little USB-like device into a standard terminal device (display + keyboard + mouse), and my whole computing environment comes to me?
Granted, there are some concerns, data security being the greatest, network bandwidth following a close second. But if the 'cloud' was my personal server in my basement, and not in some third-party datacenter, it's starting to look very interesting.
Eventually, if the 'cloud' environment addressed data encryption for storage and if the network speed was sufficient (pretty big if's, admittedly), I could see this becoming the Next Big Thing for most casual PC users. Don't like Dell's cloud? Try Apple's. Or Google's. Or Amazon's. Or roll your own. Computing as a commodity service.
How would anyone know it's been tested?
Yeah, and one of those self-climbing ladders?
