Google's Android One Initiative Launches In India With Three $100 Phones

trevc Re:Interestingly (50 comments)

I assume by "this country" you mean the USA. I make about $35,000 a year (obviously not an engineer), I have a wife (doesn't work outside the home) and 4 kids, 2 vehicles paid for, and I own my own 5 bedroom house (will be paid off in 5 more years). I don't understand you rich guys who can't pay for stuff. Do you live in like Connecticut or Seattle or something? Why would anybody live in an expensive place in the Internet age?

Where do you live and what do you do?

FarmBot: an Open Source Automated Farming Machine

trevc Re:not true at all (133 comments)

Modern agribusiness is highly automated, which is why the proportion of the U.S. population engaged in farm work has declined from about 30% to about 2%, while food production has increased.

No, that is because it is now done by undocumented illegals.
