Scientists In Japan Build 100Gbps Wireless Network Using Terahertz Transmitter 47

Mark.JUK writes: A group of Japanese scientists working on a project managed by Hiroshima University claim to have successfully built a Terahertz (THz) transmitter, which is implemented as a silicon CMOS integrated circuit and can transmit a signal running at 10Gbps per data channel over multiple channels in the 275-305GHz band for a top speed of 100Gbps (Gigabits per second). But crucially nobody has mentioned the distance at which this speed could be achieved, particularly since the THz band isn't likely to have much of a reach. It also sits very close to the region used by lasers.

Could it be because it's still going to have a "fuck it, you drive" mode which passes responsibility to the human so Google can claim they're not responsible?

Well no, if it had a "fuck it, you drive" mode then there would need to be no regulatory changes. Also, it's right in the article that Google wants to avoid the driver panicking and taking control of the car when something goes wrong.

I could never downgrade to using a laptop screen for a dual monitor setup. I prefer to have the screens next to each other (dual 22.5") on a proper ergonomic stand since I spend many hours on working and staring downward will cause a massive neck cramp.

Also, only an american would assume I do most of my travelling by car.

Actually Hotmail/Outlook etc have a pretty bad false positive rate. For my clients, I have far more complaints abut personal email from my server being redirected to the Junk folder from Hotmail users than from any other provider and that's on top of the once a year ban my mail server.gets from Microsoft where everything bounces until I email them and they remove the block with no feedback as to why it happened.

That.. is the single most misguided reason I've ever heard for choosing a laptop over a desktop. My desktop PC was built with quiet components If I push the graphics really hard (games, not HD movies) I can hear the fan on that start up.

For my trouble, I get more RAM, a more powerful CPU, better graphics, and far more expansion ports and my laptop stays on a shelf unless I'm travelling or I need an on site computer for a contract and in both of those cases size really does matter..
