Local Motors Looks To Disrupt the Auto Industry With 3D-Printed Car Bodies

Meski Re:Open Auto (128 comments)

The answer to that would be to let the 'local automakers' leave your country rather than prop them up. (like happened here, Australia) Short term pain, but probably long term gain. Carmakers like Elon Musk/Tesla with very different car making models aren't likely to oppose this.

Obama: Gov't Shouldn't Be Hampered By Encrypted Communications

Meski Governments, you can get this info already (562 comments)

What you can't do is get it without asking. IOW, bulk scanning and indexing is not doable. And it shouldn't be. If you want some info, go get a court order for *just* that info. Don't legislate a fishing expedition for all of the info.

Meski Re:Joke? They're real! (100 comments)

And were fantastically cheaper if you bought billions of them <carl sagan voice> Later EPROMS came without windows and were called OTP (one time programmable) - these hit a good price point - do your dev with the quartz windowed ones, and small production runs with OTP
