Battery-Powered Transmitter Could Crash A City's 4G Network

MrQuacker Re:For how long though? (121 comments)

There are special issue government sim cards and phone numbers that get top priority and skip the cell queue. So even if the tower is "jammed" by people calling, those phones get priority and still get through. So important communication still happens.

But by jamming the tower, none of that works.

Salt Lake City Police To Wear Camera Glasses

MrQuacker The catch? (307 comments)

So whats the catch? Does it still count as "evidence" in court? Can a defendant use the footage against the police?

Harvard Software 3D Prints Articulated Action Figures

MrQuacker Re:Anyone at home (75 comments)

Depends on the print resolution. The higher the resolution, the higher the printer price. Low resolution designs like MakerBot are cheap, and can be bought/built by almost anyone.

Also, with hackerspaces popping up all over the place, many people gain access to expensive tools like high end printers.
So you could design at home, and then go print it out. Like how we used Kinkos in the 90's.

Ebola Outbreak Kills 13 In Uganda

MrQuacker Re:Travel Bureau (105 comments)

A mediocre attempt at best. You had a good first line that pulls the reader in, and your second line has a good start. But you fail starting at about 5 words in.

Trying to Untangle Anarchist Attacks On Scientists

MrQuacker Just a label. (333 comments)

"Anarchist" is just a catch all label for a whole range of people. Lets not forget all the Christians, Jews, and Muslims that don't agree with some kind of tech/science and protest/legislate against it.

Ask Dr. Ramsey Faragher About Navigation/Positioning Technology

MrQuacker Solar Events? (104 comments)

How will the system function during/after a major solar event? Assuming a worst case scenario, satellites in orbit could be disabled for good. And depending on the severity, transmitters on earth may be affected as well.

Your thoughts?
