Not me, but my thesis adviser became the Technical Director for JSIMS, which ran through +/- $1B before the pentagon pulled the plug. He is not shy about mentioning that fact.
I think this is how the "sculptor" created the statue of Lucille Ball that's been in the news lately. (http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/04/travel/lucille-ball-statue-feat/)
He dug up her corpse, scanned it, and "Voila!!"
is how I assume all hackers (regardless of hat color) would read "Designed for Security."
I was thinking of a dismounted patrol in areas where Humvees can't go, or when the brass wanted the troops on their feet for COIN type operations.
When the sergeant tells the grunts that SOMETHING is going to have the carry the thousands of pounds of stuff (food, water, ammo, batteries, etc.) that the platoon requires - it can either be them or the the robots - I think that the grunts are going to get over whatever dislike of the robots they may have had.
Someone should ask Bill Cosby if he liked the outcome of his "Make me a Meme" social media project.
If they a calling a wrong-a number, it's-a all right.
Don't worry - idiots everywhere are doing their best to bring this one back!!
What parts of "Top Gun" did RANGER appear in? Any shots that could be identified were of ENTERPRISE, with her distinctive cubic superstructure. See this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
Did they shot some interior footage on RANGER, or is this just wrong?
Amazingly, one of the pilots in the F-14 footage is still on active duty, nearly 30 years later. ADM James Winnefeld, now the Vice Chair of the JCS, was one of the instructors at Top Gun when the movie was shot and flew some of the dogfights.
Having served in the Navy for over a decade, I've got to say that "floating in international waters" and "looser building codes" seems to be a inherent contradiction in their plan.
I think that drapes are a better analogy. Banks, safes and safety deposit boxes protect things that might be stolen, while drapes prevents people from seeing what you are doing in a place where you have an expectation of privacy.
Being on the internet without encryption is like being in your house without drapes.
Similarly, the FBI has indicated its displeasure with the manufacturers of another new product intended to thwart law enforcement officials from keeping all Americans, but especially the children, safe.
"This new product will make our job much more difficult. Honest people, true Americans, with nothing to hide, should have no need for such a product."
Despite such warnings, the sales of drapes and Venetian blinds have been brisk.
I read the same thing on a Bill Cosby album liner forty-five years ago.
When I've been considering it, the option of leasing and then buying the car was much more expensive than buying outright. It might not be that way all the time, but it was in mine.
I think that this is the perfect analogy to this. I don't do car leases because at the end of the lease, I don't get to keep the car. I don't care about having a new car, and I would rather drive an older car and not have a car payment. The older car essentially works just as well in its task of getting me from point A to point B.
With smart phones, it's different. The new smart phone may or may not be significantly better and provide significantly more functionality than the two year old one.
I no longer needed a cell phone for work, so I turned mine in. When I looked at buying one and going month to month compared to getting a contract with a cell provider and a discounted phone, I did the math, and the difference was under $20 over the course of the 2 years. I decided to go with the contract, since I wouldn't have to put out a high up front cost. Now when this contract is up, I will look at what the latest cell phones can provide that my current one can't, and decide whether that is worth the price of a new one. If yes, i will probably sign up for a contract and get a new phone. If not, I will just switch to a cheap month-to-month program.
