Similarly, I find that using the compute power of my video cards to run Folding@Home renders my computer nearly useless.
Ideally for me, a reference will be made as merely a humorous hook to a serious discussion. Even the expectation of a meme-based reply often hooks me in to reading an article I normally would skip over.
That’s where things get interesting. Say, for example, you play a YouTube video. The pCell data center would request the video from Google’s servers, and then stream it to your phone through those 10 antennas. But here’s the key innovation: No one antenna would send the complete stream or even part of the stream. Instead, the data center would use the positions of the antennas and the channel characteristics of the system, such as multipath and fading, to calculate 10 unique waveforms, each transmitted by a different antenna. Although illegible when they leave the antennas, these waveforms would add up to the desired signal at your phone, exploiting interference rather than trying to avoid it.
Makes me feel outdated, tbh. I thought this was America.
