Researchers Moot "Teleportation" Via Destructive 3D Printing

MondoGordo Re:Isn't that how the transporter works? (162 comments)

Actually no the ST transporter converts the object into an energy pattern, beams the energy to a remote location and erases the pattern after the object is re-integrated into solid matter at the remote location. ... the object only ever exists as matter in one place at a time. which is why people are lost in transporter accidents.

Unbundling Cable TV: Be Careful What You Wish For

MondoGordo Re:And? (448 comments)

I think the point of the unbundling argument is that you should be able to buy just what you want ... in addition to being able to buy the bundle. For example i can buy a camera body($400), or a 50 mm lens($100), or a 200mm lens($200) or a camera bundle that includes the body, 2 lenses and camera bag ($500). If i only want the camera lens, I should be able to buy just the lens....

High School Student Builds Gun That Unlocks With Your Fingerprint

MondoGordo Re: Great one more fail (600 comments)

The only problem i have with this tech is that there are already states having laws that say that when this kind of tech is widely available that it will be the ONLY kind of gun that it will be legal to buy ... thereby eroding the 2nd amendment further.

U.S. Senator: All Cops Should Wear Cameras

MondoGordo Re:I like... (643 comments)

And this is why the cops arrest people for filming them on duty ... confiscate phones/cameras ... make people delete recordings. They don't want a record that they can't control.

U.S. Senator: All Cops Should Wear Cameras

MondoGordo Re:I like... (643 comments)

it's only a bad idea if the police have control over the recordings ... then you would see incriminating footage getting lost or deleted (and blamed on "equipment failure" ) & only exculpatory (for the police) footage being preserved. I'm all for it (despite the expansion of the panopticon) if the cameras are always on (including an officer recall if the feed fails), the feed is streamed to a remote location, the record is administered by a public advocacy agency and available for public review, and all interactions of a routine nature are deleted after a fixed period of time.

How Does Tesla Build a Supercharger Charging Site?

MondoGordo and they can be incredibly compact.... (190 comments)

Actually no ... the underground storage tanks are very large and necessitate a relatively large footprint for the station (the tanks cannot be under a road or building) ... regardless of the presence or absence of any kind of retail space.
