We don't need no stinkin' grid to save the world. One homeowner at a time we're saving ourselves the discomfort of grid failure. We're also saving ourselves overcharges by utilities without recourse to the Ponzi scheming Utility Commissions. Who will pay us ten cents on the dollar for what we send back to the grid? The Utility Commission (Public left out purposely) Get a battery and an inverter and avoid extremes of heat or cold with a working refrigerator, lights and internet.

Meanwhile the fastest growing energy users won't buy any black energy.
At the end of last year, houses held 3.3 Gigawatts of capacity.

Makes sense now. With 10x the computing power in the last few years, Google Now, can actually do what the EU demanded that Google engineer. Unfortunately EU'er thinking is at odds with achieving the scale of computing necessary for both data security and privacy options.

Sounds like another Act of God in Houston TX
Heavy rainfall has hit normal life in Mumbai with water logging reported at several locations across the city and local train services rendered suspended with several tracks under water. The incessant rainfall in the city and the forecast of intermittent rain in the next 24 hours has led BMC to cancel all municipality-run schools for the day. In fact, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has advised people to stay indoors and travel only ...

Good thinking Tsipras: put the Turks upstream and in control of gas flowing to Greece. I bet you believe the Turks wish you well and that the Russians are still communists.

Go to the Google Fiber site. Check the info for apartment managers. Google has written the book for managers of apartments with upscale 24/7 Tennant's. ATT could easily copy Google's procedures and upgrade whole buildings for very little. Instead it hides behind regulations that require ATT to rip off its users in the name of investors. Even numbers racketeers and loan sharks could be proud of the return on ATTs capital.
AT&T’s empty merger promise leaves residents without fast or reliable Internet.

At 1000 frames per second you don't need to know whose facial tics your camera has read to know who's lying.
The new Sony Cybershot RX10 II has huge boots to fill, as the original RX10 superzoom is one of the best cameras we've ever seen. To up the ante, Sony ha

Greeks banks will fail this weekend; After a week without money, Greeks will go to the polls with a stark choice: life without money or life without Tsipras.

Hmmmm.. tough choice,
The ministers’ action came hours after the Greek prime minister called for a referendum on the creditors’ terms.

Austria warns Hungary it may retaliate in row over migrants. Good for them. Not good for Russia's buddy Serbia. Not good for Russia's buddy Greece. Not good for communists, but good for Fascists sowing dissention.

Having a Europe without a European Constitution cannot be bought with German geld.

Not stale. IoThings were always toxic without end to user encryption for com and data storage. The BS model where Samsung, Verizon, Comcast and others who had no business monitoring your home-life w/o your permission are Google Now'ed outside your Google Nest.

As a minimum Apple, MS, Intel, HP.... will protect your privacy at least as securely as Google.

Home Security is the IoT killer (prevention) App.

Russia is even weaker than Putin pretends. Lend Lease, or give them all the military aid they can use, kept Stalin in the game until he could muster enough Asians to become cannon fodder clearing the way for Russian tanks on the strategic offense.

Russia can threaten to use Chechens in the same way, but Chechens know the score. Even if three out of four young Chechen men had to be sacrificed to make an additional three women available for the true believers in polygamy, it is unlikely that they could be sacrificed on UK soil for the benefit of Vikings.
Despite popular arguments to the contrary, Russia is actually weak and Putin is even weaker. Russian military strength is in decline and not all of its neighbors find it fearsome. Its economy is set to break through one false...

Finance What? Third World elites greed by bribing them to continue to build underwater cities for people who are not elite like them.

Bah! Humbug! Let cities save themselves. States, Nations and the UN diplomacy are irrelevant for the survival of innocent people. According to the UN's interpretation of human rights, the right to slaughter those not like us is a national prerequisite.

Both sides of policy arguments are against scientifically managing cities for the safety an comfort of the people who use cities:
1). Blue folk favor stupid unionized people tricks, featherbedding and needless slaughter by humans doing their typically bored and distracted thing. They are only human and did not intend to kill people. Since when did intent matter to those who were killed?
2) Red folk, particularly the science deniers refuse to measure anything or experiment with change. Measuring the needless exposure of city dwellers to foreseeable catastrophic events that happen because politically connected developers sell underwater property rights to suckers and the rights to collect from suckers to banks, is anathema to those claiming biblical rights to lie, cheat, steel and otherwise violate applicable he Ten Commandments in the pursuit of greed.
