ArcadeMan Re:whats the big deal? (276 comments)

Let's be blunt here, after you've seen a few thousands, it gets boring.

So boring, in fact, that you only managed to see a few thousands.

Raspberry Pi Gets a Brand New Browser

ArcadeMan Re:Not the correct application for this (92 comments)

I blame people who have no idea that sending a 1.8MB, 3000x2000 pixels PNG is a bad idea both for the size of the file and the RAM required to store the file and the RAM required to decompress the image in order to display it. And that's only the background image of a single page.

Google Testing Drone Delivery System: 'Project Wing'

ArcadeMan Re: Say what you will but this is cool (52 comments)

Collide with helicopters and planes? Trains and automobiles? Drones aren't high-altitude flyers nor near-ground flyers either. That's like being afraid that our moon's orbit is going to collide with Mars.

How the World's Fastest Electric Car Is Pushing Wireless Charging Tech

ArcadeMan Re:Not worth it. (49 comments)

Followed that in those region, the water saving was so efficient, that the consumption dropped below critical threshold for the infrastructure. To maintain it, it now needs to be flushed out on regular basis, which in turn lead to a higher overall water need as before the initiatives.

People need to have access to that kind of information so that they can react accordingly, individually. And not buried in twelve sub-levels of the municipal website either. Something easy to access that loads instantly, such as a 100KB website. All you need is the municipality logo (small PNG), maybe a low-details map of the area using the ressources and an easy-to-read status of the system (let's say red, yellow, green, like traffic lights) with a one-sentence description about what each color means.

You could do that for water, electricity, etc.

How the World's Fastest Electric Car Is Pushing Wireless Charging Tech

ArcadeMan Re:Quite warm beneath the car, right? (49 comments)

Everyone is talking about climate change, energy efficiency, etc. And the future is supposed to be 30% energy losses everywhere just because people are too lazy to connect fucking cables?

This race is doomed.
