    SpaceX Plans to Replace Long-Haul Flights with Rocket Travel

    Satellite launches are limited to 4 G. The Space Shuttle, when it was around was 3 G. Falcon 9 can hit up to 4.5 G, depending on payload. Untrained individuals black out around 3-5G without a g-suit. Course, like I said, just knock them out before launch. I think the problem could be the...

    Tesla Model Y Production Starts November 2019

    Second generation Nissan Leaf? Do you expect your Volvo not to last much longer? I'd assume a Volvo with regular maintenance could reach 300k miles.

    SpaceX Plans to Replace Long-Haul Flights with Rocket Travel

    What if they did it more like 5th Element style? Jam your ass in a pod, then knock you out with some gas.

    82% of American Teenagers Own an iPhone?

    And just about everything out on the net, phone just turns off from degraded battery. Sure, app crashes, reboots, and shutdowns are things that happen with Android phones, but never seen them due to degraded batteries. Not even my own Android phones have done such and that's pretty much all I've...

    Live - Zuckerberg Before Congress Pt 1

    Maybe you should look up quotes on "assuming things". Also, what data are they selling? Did they specifically say they were selling user data? As I said before, I'm sure they do allow 3rd parties to see data, based off user data, but not the user data itself. I'm sure they do all kinds of...

    82% of American Teenagers Own an iPhone?

    I bet you it probably didn't reboot, but just turned off. Then you'd turn it on. There is a difference between reboot and powered off. Majority of your Android devices simply turn off with a degraded battery. iPhone devices do pretty much exactly the same thing.

    Live - Zuckerberg Before Congress Pt 1

    I didn't say Facebook didn't screw up with their API. They massively screwed up and they are paying for it right now, but what you are stating is completely incorrect. It's also not splitting hairs. If I provide you a bar graph that says 5% Facebook users like yellow, 10% like blue, 50% like...

    82% of American Teenagers Own an iPhone?

    My guess is that's more due to iPhones all being flagship phones, while Android phones are a mix of low, mid, high, and flagship phones. You're more likely to get a new phone every year or sooner, if your phones only cost you $150. If I buy a $800-1000 phone, I'm going to use it as long as possible.

    That isn't splitting hairs. That's completely different. You're generating new data, based off the data that you gathered. 5 people on our platform like eating cheese, is a lot different than Joe Doe, Sally Bob, Randall Watson, John Smith, and Jane Doe like eating cheese. Here's the posts of...

    Live - Zuckerberg Before Congress Pt 1

    Facebook collects the data, but they don't sell it. They sell access to information about the data they collected, but not the data itself. As in, they aren't going to give you everyone's data, but they might provide other information about those on their service. Like, 10% of our user base...

    82% of American Teenagers Own an iPhone?

    Yes and it does what? Turns off, cause it's a power loss situation. It's not going to bother randomly rebooting, unless there's some other cause that isn't battery related. It's just going to turn off, like it completely loss power.

    Sounds about right. I'm thinking some Tech websites will zero in on it, but most won't ever look at tech websites or even know of any tech websites. Maybe could show up on your larger, more known sites.

    I hope they decide to make those answers public, but I'm sure they won't.

    Live - Zuckerberg Before Congress Pt 1

    I always hate these type of government "meetings". They could have easily sent him certified mail of what they want to ask and have him send back his responses via mail. Then publish the mail on their website for the public to view. Hell, make him send 2 responses. One less technical and one...

    82% of American Teenagers Own an iPhone?

    Huh? Do you even know anything about Android phones? There is a battery conserve mode that the phone will go into, unless you're literally at 0% at which point, it'll turn off. Guess what an iPhone will do at 0% battery? Same thing. Android phones don't randomly reboot from a degraded battery...
