Ebola Has Made It To the United States

DeTech Re:Lone star... (475 comments)

You know, I always thought the fences they keep building along the Mexican border should have been located a bit farther north.

You're on to something there.

Maybe we can get them to "Teach the Controversy " when it comes to the Mexico–United States border and roll back to 1836. If we play our cards right maybe we can throw in the Louisiana purchase as well.

"leasing is fleecing!" consumers that end up paying more in the long run, provided they have the buying habits of the majority of Americans - replacing their vehicle every 4-6 years.

Correct. you are being fleeced and you're replacing your car too often. By your logic renting an apartment is cheaper than buying a house, as long as you move every 4 years...

The Dismal State of SATCOM Security

DeTech Re:As a SATCOM professional... (54 comments)

Well, unless you can point someone at this list of vulnerabilities and say "it's not meant to be secure", and still make your sale, of course.

That of course is the kicker. The customer base for Inmarsat and Iridium is not the SHIELD/HYDRA community the OP has in his head. This is more the western union /pay-as-you-go-phone crowd.

Harvard's Robobee learning to fly

DeTech DeTech writes  |  about 2 years ago

DeTech (2589785) writes "Harvard researchers are getting closer to their goal of developing a controllable micro air vehicle called the Robobee. The tiny robot was already capable of taking off under its own power, but until now it was completely out of control. By adding two control actuators beneath its wings, the robot can be programmed to pitch and roll."
