Any kind of automated mass collection of data without a human in the loop to determine if a threat is credible or not is going to have significant problems.
If you haven't been paying attention lately, having any kind of civil servant in the loop to determine if a threat is credible or not is also going to have significant problems.
Keywords: Swatting, ATHF Movie/Boston, NSA/FISA Court, Hello Kitty "bubble gun" and/or pop-tarts, etc.
For anyone who hasn't experienced this for themselves, 4K laptop displays + Windows 7 = complete train wreck.
I for one simply cannot wait to do the same to my new car/refrigerator/thermostat. In the meantime, one alternate plan that's worked very well so far is to not buy any new cars or refrigerators or $200 learning thermostats.
The $1.5 billion rover, a near-copy of the Curiosity rover, will collect about 30 samples of rock and soil for eventual return to Earth.
Or we could spend that money on something worthwhile.
No problem. Would you prefer 3 weeks of corporate farm subsidies (20B/yr), one Ohio class submarine (2B/ea) or three B-2 bombers (500M/ea)?
There are fewer parts in an EV, so you might need one large bill to replace batteries, but vs water pump and two cambelt changes I've had to stump up for already at 90k and other servicing costs.
In a pure EV sure, though you still have some new things to break. Specifically anything that's an accessory. Electric motors are far less reliable than hydraulic pumps. (Power Steering, Air Conditioning, Power Brakes) and of course you have the electric motor(s), batteries, computers and any associated charging/voltage conversion hardware bits.
In a Hybrid you've got the worst of both words maintenance wise, but that's the trade-off you're making.
that bitch got no PHD,
I lost count of mine,
I got stupid whack degrees.
It's cheaper for existing players to upgrade their existing plants than build shiny new ones and it's a double win when you get to shut down half of them down for "maintenance" at the same time and jack up gas prices
Why should they continue to spend money to support an ancient OS that no one is buying any more?
Pontiac is out of business. So low-priced overpowered ego-peen vehicles are slowly dwindling away
You'd like to think that wouldn't you? Even a freaking Honda Accord has (with appropriate options) 280ish horsepower nowadays.
So pretty much the same, just minus the mullet haircuts and screaming chicken hoods.
That OS doesn't officially EOL until next year.
