It's been 10-years since Google bought Android, and began a process that would reshape the Operating Systems market as we know it. It wasn't clear to everyone at the time whether it made any sense for the Search Giant to go into operating systems, especially the dreaded phone market. Now, it would be hard imagining a Google that didn't.
The electric vehicle revolution came to the streets of Munich, Germany this week in the form of a 40-ton, all-electric, 18-wheeler truck.
The latest in BMW’s line of electric vehicles, the vehicle can travel 62 miles (100 kilometers) with a full battery, requires 3 to 4 hours to fully charge, and will exclusively be powered “with electricity from renewable sources,” the German auto giant says.
The truck will be used by the car company to transport vehicle components two miles across Munich seven times a day. BMW has test-driven the truck and says it is optimistic that it will be able to go a full working day on a single charge.
As countries reduce emissions with alternative energy sources, the European Commission has found that transportation is the only large sector in the EU in which greenhouse gases continue to rise.
Glen Welch reached out to me this evening with a few more Fallacy Ref memes. It seems people mentioning they saw these memes on my G+ page have been making requests to him to memeify their favorite fallacies, much like they would request a song if he was a cover band. Glen has asked me to add these new memes to my repost of his collection "to appease the masses."
Masses, consider yourselves appeased!
