They must be trying to lure the /. crowd of fat middle-age american geeks who think they are smarter than everyone else because they read Slashdot like it's the holy bible.

actually, a lot of us DO treat /. it as poorly written fiction. and the parts we take seriously, we take with a "salting the fields" amount of salt. good call!

for residential, that's true. for commercial and/or municipal, they stick to diesel.

in the case that con-ed shuts off nat gas flow due to fires (which is happening all over the place right now...), do you want your generator to choke out?

that leaves lp. diesel packs about a 50% higher energy density than lp. which would you prefer to use? further, diesel is much more commoditized than lp, and is more readily available during a crisis.

Motorola HC1: Head-Worn Computing For Workplaces With Deep Pockets 42

alphadogg writes "Motorola Solutions has unveiled a head-mounted, voice-controlled computer that's targeted at the military and other industries where workers need hands-free access to information. Called the HC1, the device runs on an ARM processor and has an optional camera to send back real-time video over a wireless network. Unlike Google Goggles, though, the HC1 is aimed at the enterprise market with a price tag of $4,000-$5,000 per unit. Areas the company has been experimenting with include 'high-end repair markets,' such as aircraft engines, said Paul Steinberg, CTO of Motorola Solutions (which is the part of Motorola Google did not acquire). 'Emergency medical personnel at trauma centers might be looking at this too.' The HC1 will augment what users see by providing additional data, he said. Multiple units could be networked together and share information. Video here. "

It's hard to think of you as the end result of millions of years of evolution.
