Nothing is slowed down. Light always goes at the same speed. Guess its name.
When you've quite finished being sarcastic, you might want to remember what you learned about refraction at high school. The constant "c" is the speed of light in a vacuum.
In primary school, I was taught that the primary colours are red, yellow and blue. I suppose what they really meant was magenta, yellow and cyan.
Killing people is going to be a regrettable necessity for some centuries to come.
What's the ultimate UI goal? Terminator vision.
Which was pretty inexplicable in the context of the Terminator. The visual processing system derived information about the environment, then integrated it as text into the signal from which it was derived such that it had to be processed a second time to be acted upon?
There only needs to be distance because your eye's lens has a minimum focal length. As long as you can arrange for the light to enter the lens *as if* it comes from some distance away, it doesn't actually need to do so. That's easier said than done, mind you.
Indeed, the free market will sort it out. Like for instance, dodo eggs got really expensive, so the price went up, fewer people bought dodo eggs, so the price went down... um... hang on.
If you think the new VW 2-seater has an efficient combustion engine... man, wait till you see what a great conversion rate modern power stations get!
Perhaps you haven't noticed that resources aren't exactly evenly distributed the world over? Good luck keeping your military-industrial complex ticking over without oil.
Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
But would user analysts spend their spare time analysing users like hackers spend their spare time hacking?
Like for instance being alert and open to the fact that there's a lottery each week, having the courage to buy a ticket, and having the intelligence to have previously time-travelled into the future to determine which numbers are going to come up. Who needs luck?
Google doesn't live by free. It lives by selling advertising.
Being 0wn3d has nothing to do with the platform
Two decades in the field has left you with the impression that all platforms are equally secure? You must not have been paying much attention.
Unless you happen to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit. Then no amount of accepting Jesus into your life can save you. Thanks be to God!
