4 Revolution has an article asking “La voiture connectée signe-t-elle la fin des feux de signalisation?” (it's asking that question in French, obviously) or as Google Translate would ask in English, “She signs the connected car late traffic lights?”, which isn't quite right but hopefully you get ...

Who needs a green thumb when you have the CropBox, which grows your plants automatically, and can be adjusted with a smartphone.

scheduled to be operational by 2018

So we'll have an operational spaceport years before we've decided on where to put another airport runway near London.

Has the term "circular economy" blipped on anyone else's radar recently?

There's something about it that seems to be slightly odd for what otherwise looks like fairly bland corporate greenwashing ("recycling yay!") and that is that is actively against private ownership (private as in Joe Schmuck on the street private - obviously it's corporations and not the state that get to own everything). 

I've never seen "consumers will rent everything" as the headline bit when people describe the circular economy, it's always several paragraphs in after non-controversial items that most people would readily agree with. Another thing I've seen often seen is bad analogies being used (usually "it's like a pay as you go phone" when it's nothing at all like a pay as you go phone). And of course, the cargo cult of youth's holy word 'Millennial' is often invoked (as in "Millennials prefer to rent and not to own").

Maybe I'm being paranoid, but there's something here that's raising red flags in my mind.
A working circular economy could be a practical solution to the planet's emerging resource problems. Here's 10 facts you should know.

+Norbert Rittel Sure, so it´s only for those who can´t receive the free channels like ARD, ZDF, ARTE.
Free: ARD, ZDF, Arte, Phoenix and all regional public programs live
Master (1,99€): plus ProSieben, RTL and Sat.1
Magic (11,99€): plus HD channels and some pay channels
Max (18,99€): plus some more pay and HD channels (Universal, Sony and so on)...

In my honest opinion: That is far more as I currently pay for my cable package...

I'm not 100% convinced that "for the brave" is what I want in smartphone.

I wonder if this is related to the oil price drop.
