Until the OS's that you want to virtualize will not operate well in it. Then you will need to switch.
I get one bar on my hotspot where I am, and I get about 35mbit down and 18mbit up.
Has the Cold War really ramped back up to the point where that system needs a replacement?
I think you mean to say, "If drones are illegal, only criminals will have drones".
Yes. And drones don't kill people, people kill people. It's actually kinda funny to watch a lot of normally "progressive" types who've always reflexively ridiculed the sport shooting types for their defensive postures regarding irrational gun laws
And you think that's going to get by undetected?
Scenario: pop away some sort of cover on a flatbed truck a couple of blocks from the White House. Fire up a very un-sexy, easy to build hexa than can easy lift a few pounds. It could quickly self-navigate straight up to a couple hundred or more feet (these things can climb like rockets), above any local building tops, and then move horizontally towards the White House at the better part of 50mph. Who CARES if it can be detected? If there are people on the White House lawn doing some sort of camera op or press conference, that bird would be right over them in the blink of an eye, and could drop something nasty with shocking accuracy, within a meter of a typical presser podium. It would happen so fast that being detected or not doesn't really matter.
I love these machines. They're great for all sorts of fun and creative uses. But a smart, determined bad guy really could put them to some very evil, if innovative, use. And that's the point. New government limits on their use make the bad guys just laugh!
the payload of the DJI Phantom line is measured in low-double-digit grams
I have a pimped out Phantom. The extra payload it carries:
3) GoPro with Battery
4) Video Downlink TX with cloverleaf antenna
6) Various related cables, mounting hardware
Which all adds up to almost 340g - and it still maneuvers like crazy, and stays up for an easy 15 minutes.
No, it's not a lot. But it's lot more than low-double-digits. My bigger rig can easily carry 8 or 9 pounds while climbing to hundreds of feet faster than you'd believe. And it can go horizontally at a pretty frightening speed.
No, they're not. They are allowed to claim that they offer "broadband" to any area their LTE network is available.
Don't forget the normal voter who just doesn't want to have more taxes. Even if it means that they will pay more for Internet service.
Americans in general, have a distrust of the government. And prefer to have more personal power even if that means they are putting themselves in a disadvantage. But that way it is their mistake in their lives not someone elses.
Are you implying that my Open Source Grammar and Spell checker is faulty?
Most companies don't.
If it gets to a point where your program is changing its programming language for its code, chances are the entire workflow process will be evaluated, and will be coded from the start up. If there isn't a change in workflow, then there isn't a good need to change how the program is written, and they will just code the legacy system, in the style of the time.
However your Old COBOL or Fortran system is being migrated to a newer platform, the new workflow means a lot of these cool tricks back then may be so simplified down to a built in language class, so that module that took weeks to perfect may be just as easy as x.dothis()
Or if you do go back in time, your grandfather will kill you first, so he can tell those tales at nauseum on how he fought off a mad man at nauseum, which enrages you so much that you just want to go back in time and kill him.
Many high end equipment does have fairly large capacitors to allow enough power off time to do a clean power off.
I remember back in the 1990's some PC Centric folks were looking in a Sun Workstation they were surprised about all the large capacitors that were on the motherboard. In short it gives the system enough time finish its final calculation before the power goes out.
In terms of brain implants, we are at the Peg-Leg level of sophistication. We can offer them a solution that will help with some problems, but it isn't a case where we can solve all the problems.
So something that detects that a seizure will happen then does a pulse to stop it. Will help stop the seizure, but not cure all the problems, as well it may bring in some side effects, because the brain so so complicated.
However for some reason we have been polarized to a point that we really can't judge tradeoffs any more. We want a 100% cure. We want our food to be 100% healthy and fill us up, and meet the taste we are craving, we want technology to Run Fast, Use little power, and be tiny. We want our contractors to be Cheap, Fast and Good.
The fact that we live in this imperfect world, seems to have a lot of people paralyzed to the idea of progress where progress will sometimes means there will be a tradeoff.
