I'm pretty sure the government is not diverting any money from NASA to try to prove intelligent design. Oh, there probably are a few in there that would like to, but it would be political suicide. (I like to think so, anyway.)
looking to find and prep corporate data
I read as "looking to find and grep corporate data"...
Business lobbying for what what will be best for them. News at 11.... Hopefully, voters make this an issue.
I wonder whether your insurance company would demand to know how you have set your car, and adjust your rates accordingly?
Dice, is this your way of testing the waters?
You may have a point here. Rather than having robots manufacture more and more of our products, perhaps we should just build bigger and bigger things. Floating cities? Death Stars?
Nobody needs to work? Well then I guess all the products would be free at that point.
Lucas123 (935744) writes "Telehealth medicine, or communicating remotely with patients through electronic means, will be used by nearly one in six North Americans this year, according to Deloitte. With an aging Baby Boomer population and a growing shortage of primary care physicians, electronic visits (eVisits) reduce both time and cost in treating common ailments. The overall cost of in-person primary physician visits worldwide is $175 billion. Globally, the number of eVisits will climb to 100 million this year, potentially saving over $5 billion when compared to the cost of in-person doctor visits. Last November, The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) revamped its patient portal, renaming it MyUPMC, and rolling out AnywhereCare, offering patients throughout Pennsylvania eVisits with doctors 24 hoirs a day, seven days a week either over the phone or through video conferencing. The service offers a 30-minute or less wait time and saves the hospital system more than $86 per patient over a traditional visit."

Yeah. Or Chuck Norrux.
Or Tatooine (due to the fact it orbits a binary star system, not the climate).
Before we sent a generation ship, we would need to know a hell of a lot more about what's going on than just a sneaking suspicion there may be a planet and it may be in the habitable zone. At a minimum, we would want to have directly imaged the planet and verified from its spectra that it has a decent atmosphere and hopefully already has life.
It's really not a very good analogy. For the analogy to hold, the courts would have had to rule that a company that manufactures a computer that was used as an exit node is liable. This ruling is more akin to saying that it's illegal to leave the keys in your ignition because someone could take your car and commit a crime with it.
Maybe put some in the Toronto water too...
cartechboy (2660665) writes "The Toyota Prius is pretty darn popular, especially in California. One might think that hybrid sales are on the rise as gas prices continue to fluctuate, but it seems hybrid sales in the U.S. might be peaking. Researchers at IHS Automotive found that U.S. hybrid sales haven't kept pace with the rest of the market. In the automotive world, conventional wisdom states that adding a model to a brand or segment will increase sales--but that hasn't happened with hybrids. The number of hybrid offerings has almost doubled from 24 in 2009 to 47 in 2014--but U.S. hybrid sales haven't dramatically increased. In fact, hybrid market share actually declined from 2009 to 2010, and then again from 2013 to 2014. So if consumers aren't buying hybrids, what are they buying? It seems some hybrid early adopters are now switching to plug-in hybrids or electric cars stating that these models are just nicer to drive. Is this already the beginning of the end in some way for hybrids, or is it merely a blip on the sales chart?"
