"I see for most lithium battery technology is usually around 500 cycles."
Most devices with Lithium batteries are only expected to last a few years and the important factor is how long the device can run per charge so they tend to use all the capacity. A battery that is charged to 100% will die before one that is charged to less than full capacity. A car should last at least 10 years and the manufacturers have left headroom in their batteries for longevity so when the car reports the battery is at 100% it actually isn't but is more like 80%. Same goes at the other end where there's likely around 20% still left when the car says the battery is flat. Sure, if the car used the whole capacity of the battery like a phone does it would be able to go further on a single charge but it would also degrade rapidly and within a year or so the range would be significantly diminished and by year 3 the battery would pretty much require replacement.

I've got a 3D TV and the crosstalk between channels is a real challenge. I've tried multiple 3D sets and they all have it to some degree or other. Passive sets are slightly better but suffer from limited viewing angles. The effect breaks the 3D experience. TVs just aren't up to the job although OLED could have done the trick but the cost was prohibitive and newer sets don't feature 3D support. On the other hand, I have a 3D DLP projector and that has zero crosstalk and the image is brilliant but most people don't bother with projectors so for them a 3D TV isn't a benefit. Sadly, while I make a point of seeing 3D films (we have a local IMAX Laser 3D cinema) and also buy 3D Blu rays, they're getting difficult to find and some films aren't released on the format even though they did get a cinema release. 3D works really well and it is good some cinemas are persisting but the sessions are becoming rare with some chains not even bothering.
I bet it rebounds and will go through some oscillations every time it crosses 1k until folks get used to the idea that it can go to
The way to bet is to buy some
Both articles actually state that Bitcoin strongly anti correlates with the yuan.
Probably a lot of people took the news of a 1000$ high as a chance to sell now?
You mean GNU/Linux, so off-topic. Changes in Linux the kernel are not needed to bring Linux to the Desktop. What is needed is a way to distribute software that works for small programming teams -- without tuning packages for every distribution or complicated installation instructions for users. See Torvalds rant that getting his diving software out is easier on Windows&Mac than it is on Linux.
There isn't, and indeed can't be as every stage in creating art is art, but storage space stopped being an issue a long time ago. Film archives could keep copies of every movie ever released. That would be perfectly reasonable. This would ideally be both uncut and cut versions, maybe the rush copy as well. This frees up small studios from having to have complex archives, frees up directors to produce new cuts from a choice of every possible angle of every take, even from deleted scenes, and unmerge/remerge the audio layers as more complex audio systems appear.
However, if you don't do that, I think "world heritage" needs to click in a lot sooner. Star Wars (the real movie) could easily have been considered world heritage status within a couple of years.
Where undo/redo facilities exist, they should exist to the extent that it's possible to revert to an earlier checkpoint and then play back a different development line.
Does anyone really think that the ancient Babylonians would have cared about one of their cities being blasted into rubble thousands of years later?
But it does matter to those there now, the past always shapes the present, and it will matter in the future as there was a vast store of knowledge that scholars can now never see and that makes a big difference in understanding how conclusions were reached, what some of their more obscure documents meant, and where the hell they came from to begin with. It's important for other reasons, but it's hard to explain in ways that would make sense to people focussed on the future. Just accept that forgetting is a very bad thing.
So, anyway, it matters. And it will still matter when the destruction is as close to the construction as the destruction of the original Star Wars tapes was to their construction. The interval doesn't matter.
Was George Lucas the original artist? Most of the cells in his body would have been replaced, his bones would have regenerated, the DNA in his brain cells would have new genomes. The person exists only as a virtual construct, but that means there's a new George Lucas every time he experiences anything, since the machine running the simulcra - and therefore the simulcra itself - changes with experience.
There is no soul, there is only a construct that can be activated and deactivated by medical science at will.
"heavy industrial software that exclusively runs on windows without any kind of useful analog on Linux"
I have a Windows 10 VM on my Mac and VMWare runs everything I throw at it very well and when I'm done I close it down. It associates file types with the Windows applications so they open on demand. Best of all, snapshot the clean install with all activated software you need and mount working files from a network share and then if Windows screws up you can revert to the snapshot. Amazing how well stuff that would previously be considered impossible to run in a VM actually runs today. You just need to assign enough resources to Windows and all my machines have at least 8GB of RAM and Windows runs well enough in 4GB although I could easily push it to 6GB. There's only really one reason today to use Windows as anything other than a classic environment for some specific programs and that is gaming but I wouldn't mix work and play on the same box anyway. My work machine is a Mac with a Windows VM, my play machine is a desktop tower I built specifically for that and nothing else. If you don't like the Mac then you can just as well substitute Linux (I've done just that too) but the main point is to protect yourself from Windows by not making it the primary platform. They can't spy on you when the VM is off and you can strip most of the nasty stuff from it prior to making the snapshot.
That percentage is number of reports, not commited crimes (and also includes tourists). The difference goes away if you control for socio-economic status. So congratulations, you are not against immigration, you are against poverty and for education.
If you push the "extra ice" button on the soft drink vending machine, you won't get any ice. If you push the "no ice" button, you'll get ice, but no cup.
