There is no scenario in which people will stop using their phones in their cars. Even setting aside phone calls and texts, people use their phones for media these days. I don't listen to the radio very often. I stream my google music via bluetooth. Saying that it is illegal in many locales isn't not a solution. If people can use their stereos then they should be able to use their phones and the problem is simply one of the UI.
This seems backwards to me and a gimmick. The trend will be bezel-less displays and you need on screen home buttons for that. The only innovation I want to see for physical buttons is for them to move the power and volume to the back of the phone ala LG.
As a Republican I 100% agree that this is bull. I think it likely the issue though is that republicans instinctively lean toward less regulation and if you are not technically literate, then these requirements could be phrased by someone in such a way as to seem burdensome.
My family made quite a bit of money on coal and oil royalties when I was a kid. Right now oil companies are re-leasing mineral rights from everyone in my county on 5 year leases to the tune of about $800 an acre plus a percentage of oil revenue from what is extracted and that is thousands of feet underground not the 50 Eli is talking about. Of course, I don't think I can stop someone from drilling across my land, I would just be owed money if they did.
I'm wondering about who owns the land he's digging under. I own a few pieces of property and that includes things under the surface. In the states this is pretty common. I'm the last person to want regulation or rules to get in the way of doing something cool and innovative but... does he have the legal right to extract the contents under each of those tracts of land in order to bore a hole and to build a commercial enterprise through that land?
I'm sure this wasn't a paid posting... but ignoring that, this is just a promotional rate. "until the promotional pricing expires on March 31, 2018. After which pricing goes up to $160". Personally, I'd rather go with a straight forward tmobile plan.
Has solar reached the point where nuclear isn't necessary? I realize that storage is still a big issue but on such a large scale, it would seem there would be a number of solutions for this other than traditional battery storage and maybe it makes more sense to have largely independent homes or subdivisions each with their own storage than single unit large scale power plants going forward. As bullish as I used to feel about nuclear, it just seems passé these days.
Well to be fair, most everyone regardless of their daily driver distro seems to love Slackware so I can see it polling above actual usage numbers on any forum. It is just that a lot of people that like it will not use it day to day because it doesn't have a good repo of binary packages and a good package manager.
They're shooting themselves in the foot. I think they underestimate what a sense of community means to overall traffic. No message boards, no community, no loyalty to imdb as a site and that "small but passionate" userbase will eventually begin to coalesce somewhere else followed shortly by the general public.
