Do you mean thermal efficiency? I pegged it at somewhat less than 50%, like most power plants:
You have: 1g / (7 g/mol / avogadro ) * 17.5 MeV
You want: kWh
Since a typical household electricity use is about 9000 kWh/year, at 35% efficiency, that would be several years worth.
If you mean transmutation efficiency, it doesn't matter. You keep recycling the lithium until it converts. As I pointed out, the overall cost of that process could be high, but the cost of the raw lithium is insignificant.
By my calculation, the ~1g of lithium in a common phone, if converted to tritium, could generate enough electricity to power a typical household for several years. So the cost of the lithium itself is negligible.
The costs involved with gathering and handling the tritium would be a different story.
Let's put the computers that run our civilization in charge of programming themselves.
What could possibly go wrong?
Because I don't consume growth hormone residues in my diet, so long as the fecal runoff water from factory farms doesn't get into the fields where my veggies grow.
Speaking of hormones, you're not also concerned about the high levels of phytoestrogens that many vegetables produce in an attempt to dispense birth control on grazing animals?
If only Samsung had brought in Mr. Whipple to help educate the public.
This is why we can't have nice things.
I've got a 20 year old Ford car, should I rename it?
Not necessary, because it's the same physical car.
Redistributing OS images is more like manufacturing new cars. You can't build replicas of your car and offer them for sale as genuine"Fords".
There's got to be more to it than that. Something else has to be in there to provide the peculiar sour flavor notes and the mealy texture.
I think that Toblerone just patented that innovation.
The only place where offline syncing is even all that interesting is iOS clients, since everything else has some kind of facility for directly copying the files you'd like to watch. You can't sync from a shared library, either. So either you have the technical knowledge to set up a Plex Media Server and point it to all your data but NOT the understanding of how to move a 2GB file on to a mobile device using an SD card or FTP/SMB client, or Offline Syncing isn't that big of a deal either unless your mobile OS prohibits FTP/SMB/SD Cards.
I'd say Kodi because I think Plex handles audio poorly; I don't really like its flat organizational structure and the ongoing inability to customize your view of that. Plex also insists on interacting with metadata I don't want it to. There's no way to fix Plex, so I just don't use it for music.
I'm a big fan of using the Music Pump Kodi Remote for Android. I like the way I can browse my music from that and send the output to whatever Kodi device I feel like using with it. How useful that is depends on where and how you access Kodi devices; it's glacially slow on an Rpi or other old ARM device, but it's fast, fast, fast if your Kodi system is running on a decent x86 box. Kodi also gives you better options for playing back DTS-HD and other exotic formats, which is something to keep in mind of you have a multichannel setup and a bunch of SACD rips somewhere.
Can you clarify what product has a working "music DNA" function? I'd love to see something like that actually work. In my experience and for my taste (contemporary classical music) it seems that nothing does what it's supposed to.
The Plex server can also govern the bit rate being delivered, which can be a lot more efficient if CPU cycles are less precious than bandwidth.
