Comment Re:Agrument in favor of modularity (Score 1) 86

I was always on that boat, until I got an S7. Water resistant, and the battery gets me 5+ hrs with heavy use. I swapped the S4 batteries out once a day, even with constant charging. I'm pretty happy with water resistance and the glued in battery. That plus wireless "drop and charge" charging, and I'm a happy customer. YMMV, of course.

Why not start upgrading the track to run at 150 mph in segments and speed up the trip?

Because Amtrak is a corporate welfare basket case that will never come close to justifying itself economically. We have aircraft now. Passenger rail is for short-distance commuting, and it's barely cost effective at that.

If done correctly, high speed rail could work on the west coast.

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.
