    Do any of you use Linux? If so, which distribution?

    Do any of you use Linux? If so, which distribution?

    I do. I have dual booted Fedora 27 and Windows 10. I find my self always selecting Fedora from the grub menu, because it feels so smooth and refined, even though the battery life is not good. On windows 10, in general usage, I get around 8 hours of battery on my laptop, but on Fedora, same usage...

    First self driving car fatality

    She didn't tripped. I saw the dash cam footage. She came out from shadows. The car didn't even try to brake as it seemed, so clearly the car didn't identify the lady. Driver was looking down somewhere not watching ahead so he missed it too. But the way it happened, I mean it happened very...

    Why colonize Mars and not the Moon?

    Why is Mars have a higher gravity? Is it denser than the earth despite being smaller? Mars atmosphere is being taken away by solar winds. How can that help in making the Mars a backup place for human beings? It would be impossible to terraform Mars if it can't keep its atmosphere with it!

    I love my smartphone

    I wish it wouldn't catch fire. I'll never trust a $30 used phone to sleep with me! Li-ion batteries possess the risk of catching fire, specially a used Chinese phone. Keep it away from things that can catch fire immediately like your mattress. Besides didn't you get the sarcastic tone of my...

    Arthur C Clarke's space ships -- propulsion discussion

    I've read Sir Arthur C Clerk's space odyssey series and curious of the propulsion technologies used in those ships. Ships like Universe and Galaxy of space odyssey 2061 use just water. The fiction speaks of "muon propulsion" too. The main spacecrafts that we see in his 'space odyssey' series...

    So as you are a hiring manager, let me ask this? Does the global position of a university, one attends affect towards job opportunities? If some one graduate from a university that rank very low, like 7000, what type of acceptance that person would get when applying to a job? How can that person...

    Thank you. I know that the real talent is the most important thing. But, when it comes to applying jobs, usually those who've graduated from a well recognized university with a good global rank, gets more attention. Am I wrong?... I meant, would I miss opportunities due to the lower ranking of...

    Fresh water Hydrogen?

    Well the wastage of nearly 50% is not so impressive . The electricity has to be send as electricity to the hotel or houses in the island. Then , the excess can be stored within batteries . Don't forget that the modern batteries last much longer specially considering how slowly they are being...

    Why not use electricity directly instead of hydrogen

    Hey there , I'd like to add my conclusion or , what I vision as the propulsion system of the future vehicles will be. . . . Well that will most unlikely be hydrogen , probably it will be pure electric . Why, consider the batteries vs HFC s. The history and the experience the human civilization...

    Why not use electricity directly instead of hydrogen

    Very impressive technology. But still the cost would be insanely high, which could limit that to R&D. How ever who knows, could be successful too. But the initial higher costs could keep this from happening for a long time. I think so. By the way the article doesn't give any information related...

    Yeah. And I don't think the existing hydrogen filling stations have the energy flow of a gas station.
