Solar Roadways Project Beats $1M Goal, Should Enter Production

home-electro.com Re:Deja vu (311 comments)

There are so many obvious issues here, it is not even funny. What is funny, is that when you bring them up people go "oh, you are so negative"

Solar Roadways Project Beats $1M Goal, Should Enter Production

home-electro.com Re:Deja vu (311 comments)

Roads are not flat. All highways are curved with sides being lower when the center. Even the slightest inclination of the road will force to make an angled seem between the tiles, which will create a significant vibration in that place of the road. It will be destroyed in a matter of months.

Are Glowing, Solar Smart Roads the Future?

home-electro.com Re:Costs?!?? (193 comments)

Who cares about the glass? Massive infrastructure, expensive hardware, expensive installation, maintenance and repair. Just those alone make the projet non-feasible.

I have a feeling it would not be economically sensible even if they donated the panels for free

Who Is Liable When a Self-Driving Car Crashes?

home-electro.com Re: Efficiency. (937 comments)

Yes it is funny to hear people say "I don't want to trust my life to software". Then the same people have no problem flying on airplanes, that today completely depend on 100% reliable software. But driverless car? "No-no, I don't trust computer."

Geeky females also do not spend a lot of time in front of mirror. So it fails there, too.

Startup Touts All-in-One Digital Credit Card

home-electro.com No support for chip and pin yet? (222 comments)

YET????

I wonder how they are planning on supporting it. Apparently chip-and-pin was created specifically to prevent cloning. Here in Canada chip and pin are everywhere, I think all of my cards are chipped now.I can't imaging USA being too far behind.

The project is stillborn

Final Mars One Numbers Are In, Over 200,000 People Applied

home-electro.com Re:coincidentally (176 comments)

How cool is that?

Better question is, how is that cool? You are the first to be on that planet for a brief moment only. After that there will be longest end of your life. It's like prison for life with no chance of parole. You don't have to travel that far to be the first one to do something pointless.

McAfee Exaggerated Cost of Hacking, Perhaps For Profit

home-electro.com It is an *estimate* (105 comments)

Intel's one is also estimate. There is no way to validate either one of them. And, they of the same order of magnitude, so it really is unfair to stipulate that McAfee exaggerated theirs.

Boston U. Patent Lawsuits Hit Apple, Amazon, Samsung, and Others

home-electro.com Re:Enough (147 comments)

What bothers me, is how BU could prove or even know that a random no-name Chinese manufacturer of LEDs that Apple employs in their design, uses BU's patented process in manufacturing, as opposed to some other process?

Length of Applause Not Tied To Quality of Presentation

home-electro.com Re:"It turns out"? (138 comments)

Focus groups said they liked it. It was new, of course it's obviously better.... That wasn't the case when we scaled up the experiment though, eh?

So... What are you saying, this research could be flawed and more study is required? I really would like to get to the bottom of this clapping duration.

They have to study what is obvious to anybody with a bit of a common sense? And how is this non-story ends up on /.?

Altering Text In eBooks To Track Pirates

home-electro.com Re:So... (467 comments)

More importantly, what exactly does this prove? So my copy was ripped and shared, now what? In order to convict and fine me, one would need to prove that *I shared* the copy, not that my copy merely got shared. Good luck with that, a lot of things could've happen - my computer hacked, my phone lost, etc.

On another note, how is that happened that punctuation is not important anymore?
