No one is forcing anything. Low Voltage is what all the high end reliable equipment for homes is sold in. People are speaking with their wallets and building better homes. I have Tesla charging stations on order for several homes and I've already received a request for a Powerwall. The best equipment for home automation is low voltage. Change is good, nowadays....
Doesn't science help people by building things that work? Buildings that dont collapse? Computers that are useful?
If you want to be in social sciences, stay away from STEM. Let people make things that work. Just because they work.
Im with Rogers in Canada. I have a 3gb plan with unlimited talk, text, mms and call disp. Vm. The data is LTE Speed. I dont use my 3gb, but I dont sit around watching movies on my phone. The plan is $85/month. Be happy America, yours is still Cheaper.

The idea is to consider different hadron collider designs similar to the existing LHC but more powerful—much more powerful. CERN wrote it was looking for a collider “capable of reaching unprecedented energies in the region of 100 TeV.” The existing LHC will reach a maximum of around 14 TeV (tera electron Volts).
I thought his strategy was brilliant, and answering hardest questions first guarantees succsss at easier questions, given your peraonal knowledge. I answered more questions(close to half) than my average (between 1/3 and half depending on categories) correctly while he was on the show. He was also delightful to watch because we cheered for him and he was winning.

"I consider myself someone who "gets code," but I'm not a programmer. I enjoy thinking through algorithms and writing basic scripts, but I get bogged down in more complex code. Maybe I lack patience, but really, why are we still writing text based code? Shouldn't there be a simpler, more robust way to translate an algorithm into something a computer can understand? One that's language agnostic and without all the cryptic jargon? It seems we're still only one layer of abstraction from assembly code. Why have graphical code generators that could seemingly open coding to the masses gone nowhere? At a minimum wouldn't that eliminate time dealing with syntax errors? OK Slashdot, stop my incessant questions and tell me what I'm missing.
More educational would be a backpack I could wear that would control all (approx 5000) the roaches in my apartment (650s.f.) and cause them all to leave, or be squashed all at once.
Willing to pay for a prototype!!!!!
He said if he is prevented access to a computer the file will be decrypted. He likely has the file set on an access timer, to self-decrypt if anything in his regular pattern changes. After all, what 17 year old has time to do anything but be on a computer?
I currently spend the majority of my tech time on my mobile phone. Im in transit or otherwise unable to get on the laptop. Ive used several os-es so I can say I enjoy the layout. Ease of use. And unfortunately I pick up an iOS device or computer and Im actually kinda lost. Seems awkward to me.
