Comment Re:Yeah but there's a whole world out there (Score 4, Insightful) 853

You really want to pay more for your groceries, for your deliveries, for your repairs, for ... well, pretty much anything?

Aside from the moral issue of uprooting established illegals that have made a life for themselves over the last 10 year, to answer your question economically, YES YES and YES! When you import cheap labor, not only are you leaving Americans without an opportunity to earn a living, you now drive wages into the ground and force all those effected into taking more government assistance. That assistance is payed for by the tax payer. And who shoulders the cost? The broad numbers of the middle-class. As such, the disparity between the rich and poo/middle class is growing exponentially!

Pay now, or pay dearly later, but we all WILL PAY in the end.

Comment Re:How efficient is hydrogen really? (Score 1) 199

The problem with using hydrogen in an ICE is an issue with 'hydrogen embrittlement'. It basically causes cracks to form in steel. In the case of a Wankel, a steel based apex seal would have a short life. I'm not sure what hydrogen would do to a more expensive silicon nitride apex seal however over its life.

With regards to why hydrogen is more efficient in an ICE; I think it has to do with detonation duration and time in the chamber. With a piston, there longer travel time for the gases to detonate and expand. In a Wankel engine, only 1/3rd of rotary is traveling (rotating) during the combustion phase, so a shorter duration in the chamber is an advantage here.

Want a chance of smacking this down via SCOTUS?? Do *NOT* elect Hillary Clinton!!! SCOTUS will be undergoing a generational change, and the next POTUS will be picking replacements.

This next election is not about Trump or Hillary; this election is about remaining a sovereign country with our constitutional rights, or not! Choose wisely.

1. NK views Trump as a threat to their regime, thereby hoping Hillary Clinton wins by getting the voter to turn on Trump.
2. NK is taking the diplomatic approach ahead of time in the event Trump does become the next President.

This tells me, go vote Trump! =)

I don't think anyone disputes that notion. However, there IS a product lifecycle with most, if not all, commercial software. As such, mainstream support for Windows 7 ended January 13, 2015, with extended support for January 14, 2020. Basically, all features were frozen on or before the end of mainstream with security patches still being offered through till 2020.

As for Windows 8 - January 9, 2018 mainstream - January 10, 2023 extended. Though, if you have Windows 8, there isn't much of a reason not to upgrade to Windows 10.

Windows 10 - October 13, 2020 mainstream - October 14, 2025 extended.

Comment Re:4K HDR video (Score 1) 56

You know, I never have problems running 1080 or 4k content in a browser (Netflix or Youtube) with my Intel i7-3770 with / GeForce G2X 275 desktop. However, CPU usage goes up and frames start dropping the moment I rent an HD movie from iTunes. Why, for the love of all that's holy, is iTunes still the biggest pile-o-shit on a PC??!!
