New EU Rules Will Limit Vacuum Cleaners To 1600W
You always want to be as close to the nominal voltage as possible to accommodate transient under- and over-voltage conditions.
Google Offers a Million Bucks For a Better Inverter
It's pretty pointless to hook a neutral up to a delta-wired motor, code or no :D
3-phase 4-wire feeds are used all the time for commercial power here in Canada. Either 208V or 600V depending on what is required. Single phases are circuited off for 208V/120V or 347V single-phase feeds, respectively. A neutral conductor is definitely required for this application, yes. 208V single-phase circuits don't use a neutral, since they use two of three phases as if they were single phase. Their "split neutral" would be ~60V with respect to ground.
Led By Nest, 'Thread' Might Be Most Promising IoT Initiative Yet
They are actually quite a successful and respected company.
Philips Ethernet-Powered Lighting Transmits Data To Mobile Devices Via Light
Your "pure" DC likely isn't. DC power supplies for LEDs are generally switch-mode, and thus use PWM/PFM for voltage modulation.
FCC Proposes $48,000 Fine To Man Jamming Cellphones On Florida Interstate
Not really, illegal wireless transmissions are definitely reasonable cause. They are something that can be detected prior to searching the vehicle. And you can even attach a bode plot to the report, not just "I smelled something odd".
NSA Hacked Huawei, Stole Source Code
The lowest the Canadian dollar has ever been was 61.79 cents US.
Linux May Succeed Windows XP As OS of Choice For ATMs
When I go to a teller at my Credit Union, I just hand them my bank card, tell them what I want, and they key it in. Then I just sign the receipt when all transactions are done. No filling in of forms. No going only to my "home" branch for free service. I used to have to do those things...20 years ago.
NSA Can Retrieve, Replay All Phone Calls From a Country From the Past 30 Days
Canada has one phone company, because the following are not Canadian phone companies: [/sarcasm]
Bell Aliant - Made up of MT&T, NewTel, NBTel and IslandTel
Bruce Municipal Telephone Service
Gosfield North Communications Co-op
Manitoba Telecom Services/MTS Allstream
North Renfrew Telephone Company
TELUS - Made up of BCTel, AGT & ED Tel

Actually, "average" can refer to the statistical central tendency indicator of your choice...

Canadian Government Trucking Generations of Scientific Data To the Dump
They ship to China via the Gulf of Mexico? Are there no ports in BC, Washington, Oregon, or California?
Reverse Engineering a Bank's Security Token
You are generally on the hook for fraudulent credit card charges under $50, with any provider.
Jade Rabbit Spotted By American Eagle (LRO)
In Canada and the US it's generally called "the Man in the Moon".

"Money" never changed from Pounds to Euros.
Some Londoners Cut Off As Failed Copper Thieves Take Fiber
Where I live (London, Ontario, Canada), scrap metal dealers will not buy wire which has been burned. You have to either manually strip the insulation off or sell it to them with insulation still on and get peanuts for it.
Single-Atom Layer of Tin May Be a New Wonder Conductor
If you don't have resistance, any capacitive or inductive effects will be 100% efficient, no?. The whole problem with induction and capacitance in transmission lines is it increases the overall power loss due to unused current flowing through resistive lines. Superconductivity eliminates that source of loss.
EPA Makes Most Wood Stoves Illegal
The parent post said apartment *owners*, not renters.
Duke Univ. Device Converts Stray Wireless Energy Into Electricity For Charging
I'm sorry but voltage is not the speed of electrons. It is the difference in potential between two points. You can have voltage with absolutely no current. It is equivalent of pressure, not velocity.
Toyota's Killer Firmware
Drive-by-wire exists because of emissions regulations. The ECU precisely controls the position and rate of the throttle plate to optimise combustion during transient events. The current emissions regulations require strict control of combustion from the moment the first cylinder fires on cold start-up.
