The connectivity is needed so the images of the previous play(s) can be streamed to the device. (Currently they print this on copier papers and clip them together.) This way the coaches can teach the players what just happened and make adjustments to their game plan. You can usually see the Offensive Coordinator sit down with the QB in the sidelines going over these papers with a sketch pen.

> Other then Tesla, I don't really see other manufacturers really "getting it" I might be wrong, but I don't think it is the manufacturers' not "getting it", but that the cost to bring a longer range vehicle makes such a vehicle much less desirable currently. Having said that I hope the cost comes down soon enough that guys like me can actually afford a car like Tesla S.

Furthermore, how would you not riot over your government doing something like that to you?

That is a good question, and I think it really depends on how much you already have. If what you have is mostly worthless and you are on subsistence living, then such a devaluation makes no real impact. I suspect a large number of North Koreans might be in that situation. The only effect rioting will have might be getting you executed.

Comment Seems a bit like a made up story to me (Score 1) 354

I am not sure if the story is really true or not, but it stopped being believable when it said "the manager called again after a few days to apologize". Really? He remembers the person who had come in a few days earlier complaining about (targeted, yes, but still) mass-mailed coupons? And he calls them to apologize again?

It would be nice to see managers like that at the stores I shop at.
