Twenty Hydrogen Myths by noted environmentalist Amory Lovins:

>Amory Lovins has received ten honorary doctorates and was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1984, of the World Academy of Art and Science in 1988, and of the World Business Academy in 2001. He has received the World Technology Award, the Right Livelihood Award, the Blue Planet Prize, Volvo Environment Prize, the 4th Annual Heinz Award in the Environment in 1998, and the National Design (Design Mind), Jean Meyer, and Lindbergh Awards

>Lovins is also the recipient of the Time Hero for the Planet awards, the Benjamin Franklin and Happold Medals, and the Shingo, Nissan, Mitchell, and Onassis Prizes. He has also received a MacArthur Fellowship and is an honorary member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), a Foreign Member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences, and an Honorary Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council. Furthermore he is on the Advisory Board of the Holcim Foundation.

>In 2009, Time magazine named Lovins as one of the world's 100 most influential people.

Hydrogen is not only clean and green when made from renewable energy, it's the fuel of the future.

You're perfectly free to repair your own laptop.

You have a right to repair your own laptop.

But you haven't got a right to get Apple to help you.


Richard Feynman told the story of the old electrician who was upset at these new microchip things. Because the guy couldn't understand how he was supposed to get in there with this soldering iron to fix a transistor.

You don't. You don't fix it. You can try, but the fact that you can't is your problem.

They're perfectly free to use technology that you cannot repair; that's the way it goes.

That linksys is so so.

What is your budget?

No belkin please, sorry.

This asus is a very good unit at this price?

If you can spend $30 more, get the RT66

If you can spend another $30, get the AC66

For fun you can flash Merlin firmware.

I also like the Apple Airport Extreme. Good if you don't have game consoles. (Consoles like uPnP, and Apple does not have that.) It's fast, stable, just works. A lot of IT pros use them at home, because no reboots, restarts, hassles. Just works.)

Well if you're interested in Computer Science stuff (which is what I do), then I'd recommend Nine Algorithms That Changed The Future. It's written so that a layperson can understand it (but it can get a bit dense here and there if you are unfamiliar with the topics). It's fairly light reading, and enjoyable if you want to learn a little more about some of the computer algorithms that have had a tremendous impact on modern technology.

Alternatives on Amazon:

This is pretty much exactly what the USB condom is, only it actually has a cover on it, so it won't break super easily. It claims to charge faster as well. Made by PortaPow.

Since the focus is phones anyway, here's a power only microusb cable.

In fact, there's a few good device specific ones on PortaPow's store.

Bulkier, but cool. A USB 3.0 HUB that has two dedicated "power only" ports.

This also addresses /u/bachmac not wanting to use paypal. (I entirely agree, I hate paypal.)

dunno bout OP, but mine doesn't have the induction heating:

rice is good for a full day though. generally i unplug it after 12 hours to avoid getting crusty rice on the bottom. does induction help a lot with that? 3 days warming non-stop?

edit: i just realized that i always just used "keep warm" button, but just noticed the "extended keep warm". not sure i've ever used that...might have to give it a shot

u/BigSHug825 · 6 pointsr/tech

It's pretty easy to add a usb charging port with this and this.

Why ask here when you can just google "hardware software interface" and get free on-line lectures on the subject?

When you talk software+hardware, it means there's a CPU somewhere in the system. This is basic computer engineering stuff, and blends electrical engineering (EE) and computer science (CS).

Also google "embedded programming" to see what it's like to work on that type of stuff.

For something more in-depth I'm partial toward this book since it's my college computer architecture textbook back in the 90's.

u/francis2559 · 1 pointr/tech

Ehh, it's not like their brief soho routers ran windows, and it's not like they don't pay a shit ton of licensing fees in the cell space anyway, for patents.

I can see why they wouldn't want to feed google, but I'm pretty sure they'd make money faster on the hardware and whatever OneDrive stuff they integrate than whatever google charges for stock android.

> Yes, there is a lot of progress to be made, but technological advancement is very much part of it, and the problems aren't with the fact that technology renders human labor obsolete, the problem is with how we handle the new situation.

I agree with this very much. We are already seeing employment suffer as a result of a lack of imagination. It's going to get worse as robotic technology gets better. I've read several books on this sort of thing, but the one I think gave the best high level picture was this: (Don't worry, it's not too pessimistic. :))

u/invisiblephrend · 2 pointsr/tech

you mean amazon reviews are completely unregulated and easy to exploit? you don't say

u/delial420 · 2 pointsr/tech

Or you could just spend $15 on MSR Sweet Water Purifier Solution.

Or $40 on a SteriPen, if you don't want to mess up the flavor.

u/sose5000 · 1 pointr/tech

You 100% sure on that model number? Doesn't seem to fall inside the naming scheme..

Here is a full list of most of the PCG models.

Here is a keyboard that should work on most PCG series laptops.

u/jamima69 · 1 pointr/tech

is it cheap ? no. is it top performance,& top speed ? yes. and it comes with an interface that's easy to use and well thought out. you won't find a better router for any price for home use. (there's a newer, more expensive model, but you don't need it, trust me) i've had mine for about a year now. never crashed, never lost it's settings, never slowed down once even tho i use netflix, bitorrent, and serve up large files from my nas to the internet on a regular basis.

u/Ximerian · 1 pointr/tech

I know it doesn't list your model explicitly but for 20 bucks it might be worth to try.

What you seem to be asking is "how do computers work?" At any rate, the interaction of hardware and software is fundamental to any computer system, whether it's your fitness band or your cell phone or a supercomputer or the computer in your car engine or The Next Big Thing.

How that works is a really, really big question. Rather than attempt to answer it, I'll suggest you check out the book Code by Charles Petzold. It explains how computer hardware and software work, starting with basic electrical circuits and building up layer by layer until you're running an operating system and application software. That might seem like a lot to cover, but Code does it simply and cleanly, in a way that just about anybody can digest and understand.

Try this one

>Kingston Digital 64GB Data Traveler Micro Duo USB 3C Flash Drive (DTDUO3C/64GB)

You might need to find it on your own amazon if you're in a different country.

u/TomTheGeek · 2 pointsr/tech

No way I'll give up my rally mirror. I suggest everyone get one, they're cheap and really increase visibility.

u/arstechnophile · 2 pointsr/tech

I've always heard them called twist ties.

You could always try buying a 2 male 1 female audio splitter. To make the cords that go into your computers longer you can buy female to male audio extenders for each side.

Not sure how the sound quality will be but I would imagine this should work.

u/shicken684 · 3 pointsr/tech

I have this one.

Found it on sale, damaged (Just the box was busted, nothing missing or broken) for $49. I would easily pay $200 for it now that I've had it. I make rice way too much to not have a good rice maker.
