How Airports Became Ground Zero In the Battle For Peer-to-Peer Car Rentals

lawnboy5-O Re:another great example... (66 comments)

Yes! the government's economic arm... but this is different than the corrosive state of affairs we have today, wouldn't you agree? And by extension of government, you are to say they are governing powers? No. emphatically not. But that is indeed what is starting to happen in today's society. A parent / child relationship is not what we have... and in my mind there is no such thing as a "free market" present in the USA. Adam Smith's invisible hand is a myth here... its stroking the ego of the fascists right now fact. Its either regulated, policed, and maintained to operate with our corruption, or its corrupt to the bone. There is no in between save for one scenario: the morality of man gets with it, so as to not needing the policing and regulation. I am not suggest theocracy here - I am suggesting morality as a cultural underpinning. My point being it needs to be a one way relationship - which it is - but in the wrong direction at the moment.

AMD Reportedly Preparing Massive Layoff

lawnboy5-O Re:Not exactly (286 comments)

If you are going to count tablets and phones - Apple makes their own chips now, no? I just don't se ARM being competitive outside the mobile device space - which IS quite significant, and growing... no?

Ask Slashdot. Best Online Science Course?

lawnboy5-O Re:Dear Slashdot, (166 comments)

Exactly - we have to dismiss the notion of education is only for people ages 1-18 (22 / 24 - post secondary). Its almost as if you are admitting you are only capable of learning so much - which I refuse to accept. Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. - Ghandi

Study: Ad Networks Not Honoring Do-Not-Track

lawnboy5-O Re:Not surprised (133 comments)

Data is uber primo facto and all things important. Its the package.

I witnessed the printing/advertising/publishing industry evolve into a variable data and targeted-intended-onslaught-beyond-your-privacy advertising nightmare...

and you think Murdoch has problems.

They know your neighbor's last big purchase and sent you swag based on your sex, income, (very) local community, religious beliefs, to see if you want to purchase the same thing... and they know so much more - its an indoctrination into consumerism, but only because They know all the cards in your hand.

ITS ALL ABOUT DATA.

Apple declined to comment, deferring all questions to the Elk Grove Police Department."

A cordless future for electricity?

lawnboy5-O lawnboy5-O writes  |  more than 4 years ago

lawnboy5-O (772026) writes "WiTricity's version of wireless electricity — which converts power into a magnetic field and sends it sailing through the air at a particular frequency — still needs to be refined a bit, he said, but should be commercially available soon. Giler, whose company is a spinoff of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology research group, says wireless electricity has the potential to cut the need for power cords and throw-away batteries."
