The whole saga is about the adventures of two droids. The humans come and go, the droids live on through all of the films.
At work it's windoze, at home it's Mac. The only time that I NEED to run windoze at home is to submit my income tax form. I dislike the inconsistent windows interface and generally poor GUI design, and I mean deep stuff like file associations, no standard keyboard shortcuts, screen robbing menu bars in every window, etc. I am 'upgrading from XP on an old laptop to Win8 in bootcamp because I got Win8 cheap and the laptop is unreliable, after about 10 years.
as an old shareware writer, I have/had my name on 30+ software items. not everything was 'successful' but it was usually of reasonable quality, for shareware.
maybe it's just a high voltage spark from a piezo device, like a gas oven lighter or cigarette lighter. It upsets the electronics and causes the door to unlock. Used to work on a type of public telephone, why not some types of alarm systems?
there are better solutions. RPi in a plastic case? where is the news?
it is cheaper to buy a metal lathe and milling machine, that can make a better 'gun', than the mid/high level 3D printer required to build a safe plastic gun. It's all hype!!!
behind the pillows on the sofa, with the car keys and small change.
the only tool here is the person who goes out of way to set up a Linux box and WiFi point to track people. If you consider that the average WiFi has to be reasonably close to the target, then you must already have some general idea about where the target is, a lot of trouble for almost nothing.
only in black?
a single person complained and took the action. Not a popular decision.
battery life is too good.
Grammar Nazi correction.
It's too complex for the Joe Average
I am convinced that 3D printing is a niche market, I would say that until 3D file generation become as easy as operating a camera, point and shoot, most people will ignore 3D printing. It has been shown that people would like one or two 3D printed items, but why have a printer to print items that are cheaper off the shelf, or fill rubbish bins with failed prints from under powered computers, poor 3D modelling, or corrupt files?
People assemble 3D objects all of the time, they don't need a printer, they have hammer and nails, file and drills, knives and scissors, they don't need a printer. That's part of the issue, we think that a 3D printer opens a new world, and in some areas it may, but many areas are already covered by artisan crafts.
Besides, who wants the smell of ABS drifting through the house? (my Makibot is on order, for printing custom buttons for my wife)
