Any sensitive electronic equipment can be damaged by RFI (see icon).
The only what is the damage done and what sort of signal you need. If your pacemaker is damaged by a phone then a version with shielding is needed. But given enough 'oomph' - maybe an EMP device such as an Explosively pumped flux compression generator- you will fry electronics

You're holding it wrong
Re: Heating the air
The scale height for water vapour in the atmosphere is only about 2km; if you put your satellite dish 1 or 2km above sea level there is little left; hence the placement of radio telescopes for frequencies > 20GHz preferentially in high deserts. Second preference is for cold places where the water vapour has frozen out. The water vapour effect is very little below 10GHz so that is why most TV/GPS/GSM/WiFi stuff is there.
If you transmit strait up (or down) well above sea level you will only get a small atmospheric absorption; if you try this at sea level and then at ground level for many tens of kilometres (e.g in rural areas) it would be a different story. You could get 28GHz system to work well over short distances (like cities or towns with lots of towers)
That explains everything!

Actually in South Africa it has been donkey appearing in the food chain.
Use less electricity
If this gets hacked and the power is switched off at your home you WILL use less electricity - like it or not!
Can you set to authenticate on MAC address??
Look at the positive side
At least it stops you getting into infinite boot loops!

Doesn't anyone test these patches before they get sent out?
Re: Once again...
You are of course referring to
On a serious note - how long?
The assumptions are
- google plan to keep this going (unlike reader etc)
- that google will still be there after you are gone
To quote businessweek
"The average life expectancy of a multinational corporation-Fortune 500 or its equivalent-is between 40 and 50 years"
Google was incorporated in 1998 so it is already 15 years old - perhaps 25-35 years left?
So if you compare that with the lifespan of human beings there seems no point in doing this if you are under 40.

best chance to terraform mars
If we plan terraforming Mars it needs a load of volatiles (water, carbon dioxide etc.) so if this hit the planet it would be a great chance; if it heated up permafrost on impact even better.

It drops off faster than inverse!
Like the old country proverb that goes: ‘One boy is a boy. Two boys are half a boy. And three boys are no boys at all.’

I just order a Dell laptop with Ubuntu pre-installed. So you didn't look very hard
I know of an ex-colleague whose son was fired from his Saturday retail job at a computer store because he was too interested and knowledgeable.
Predictably the store went bust and he now works in IT (last heard of working on image recognition systems)
Moral: some store managers seem to want to fail.

These are only works of fiction anyway.

The dog better watch out for pythons!
Re: This is exactly what I expect from the Python community
Typical of pythonidae:
"When they feel threatened, many will hiss, ooze a bad-smelling material from the vent area at the beginning of the tail, and possibly strike and/or bite."
re: room at the bottom
for feature phones with good battery life there is indeed plenty of room in developing countries. However these will always be low-margin devices and I don't see much money in it for developers

I like the mirror concept. You could put any picture of somebody you want to defame in front and then watch 'disreputable' channels.

similar peak in South Africa
At a similar climatic zone the peak is early evenings in summer - get home, switch airco on and start cooking the evening meal while others are still at the office with aircondition still on.
