I got a telling off from the police for running a red (at 5MPH, in the middle of nowhere with no other traffic about, and I was already stationary) because there was a police car sat behind me with blues and twos roaring. I said to him something along the lines of "I thought you had something important to be getting to so I moved out of the way". To which the copper got red faced and frothing before jumping back in his car and speeding off.
It was an odd encounter
"Microsoft's website doesn't have a lot of information about E2 – and what was online now isn't. Last week, it curiously removed this page about the work, leaving the URL to redirect to an unrelated project."
Nothing unusual about this, Microsoft's websites are a garbage fire
""theatre of security being put in place because we have to "think of the (illegal) immigrants"
incidentally this system will be used at legitimate crossings by people legitimately trying to enter the EU using a passport and possibly a visa application. The real illegal immigration is coming overland via Turkey or by boat to Spain / Italy / Malta / Greece"
People voted for Brexit on the back of worrying about illegal aliens. Never did it occur to them that illegals will come regardless of immigration law, that's their whole modus operandi...

The reason? Cost.
If you sell iWidgits by the million, it all adds up. Multiply by X number of years you plan to be in business... It's a wild prediction of course.
The ideal for a hardware/software biz like Apple would be to control the hardware end to end and supply hardware agnostic APIs to developers for your proprietary OS. But that's just wild speculation
Actually space mirrors are eminently possible and require very little mass. The hard part is engineering the mechanism to unfold delicate foil in the void, after surviving launch and geosynchronous insertion of course.
The solution of course is to not use street lighting at all. There's nothing wrong with it being dark out, just need to reprogram the monkey brains!
I've got a Clevo that absolutely refuses to do anything but beep without the battery. The said battery is dead as John Cleese's parrot. Not going to buy a new one as that machine has entered semi retirement in my workshop but irks me that I can't just take it out
