I drove a crane on the reconstruction of the Old St Tube station on this site in the late 60s. And resolved a fight between the Navvies and a knife wielding Cypriot.

I fear a few lumps in this mixture
And pray, what kind of nozzle spits out a widely variable size of "drops"? Or is the a nozzle for each particle size (which makes "mixing" the concrete interesting.
Concert is an aggregate, not a uniform emulsion like ink, and, how do they print the reinforcing? This I must see!
Confusing technology with operations.
El Reg is confusing technology with operations.
In the US TMobile has a wifi hot-spot service. It works well. 802.11r will make it work better, and enable Mobile to compete for clients from the other cell carries.
My minutes have gone down for 4500/month to 2800/month (and my bill has gone down proportionally).
"El Reg hat they ought to stop messing with voice capability and concentrate on Wide Band data transmission"
Perhaps El Reg should cut down the snark, get off their fat posteriors,,and take individual responsibility for paying and minimizing their own cells bills.
How can you write so clearly with your heads in that position?
"But if nuclear is cheaper, of course that's what will be preferred among no-carbon alternatives."
Nuclear is probably much more expensive than any other form of power, because the Nuclear operato4rs do not need to set aside money for decommissioning.
There are 3 stages to a nuclear power station decommissioning:
1, Removal and disposal of fuel
2. Removal and disposal of radioactive components (reactor & steam plant)
3. Guard the site (all that concrete) for up to 1,000 years, to protect against low level radioactivity.
1. That's expensive. Especially the 1,000 years part.
2. One runs out of sites (no site reuse).
Any system should include complete cost of its entire life. Nuclear is betting on a subsidy for decommissioning.
