  Toyota's hydrogen-fueled car
Posted by: BoFox - 04-14-2016, 12:03 AM - Forum: Technology News - Replies (3)

https://ssl.toyota.com/mirai/fcv.html

Just saw this at a car show in NYC..   my jaws completely dropped!

Can't wait to see one of these cars explode someday (of course, with nobody inside, hopefully)!






But imagine - a HIGHLY COMPRESSED tank of hydrogen (see how fast that balloon exploded - a blink of the eye would miss several of those!)  The car would probably vaporize like in a H-bomb!  

Anyway, can't wait until hydrogen becomes the fuel of choice - clean fuel, just as cheap as gasoline (for the miles per gallon), right?  The filling up time is just as quick as with gasoline pump at a gas station.  Breathtaking!! 

Arab countries will take a beating in the next 20 years - perhaps gasoline will drop to below $1 per gallon, or go up to over $10/gal, since we'd still need gasoline for many things??

  The car industry has never witnessed what Tesla is about to go through
Posted by: BoFox - 04-13-2016, 11:56 PM - Forum: News & Politics - Replies (9)

Quote:Most of the best selling cars in America, such as the Honda Accord or Nissan Altima, generally hit around 300,000 in sales every year.

Tesla saw 276,000 people sign-up to buy its newest all-electric Model 3 sedan — in two days.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/inno...o-through/

Quote:Mazda sold 319,000 vehicles in the United States in 2015, according Caldwell. Lexus sold 344,000.

Bless the Tesla revolution!  They're starting to compare it to the iPhone revolution!

I'm seeing lots of Tesla cars on the roads around here in the city!

Already more than 350000 orders in 3 days, since the article!

Sorry, not that new, but I'm somewhat catching up..

When do you guys think driving will be mostly automated across the USA?  20 years?  Or less?

What would the traffic accident rate look like then?  80% less accidents?  Or better, hopefully?

I'd LOVE to NOT have to drive all the damn time, finally!!!  I can just use my phablet or laptop, play around in the car, take a brief nap, and all that!!!!!!!

  The tremendous ambitions behind New York City’s free WiFi
Posted by: BoFox - 04-10-2016, 11:10 PM - Forum: Technology News - No Replies

Quote:
the WiFi kiosks, known individually as Links, offer a proof-of-concept for a wider planned network of some 7,500 hotspots across the city.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-...free-wifi/

NYC already has free wifi at many of the subway stations, and there's also 3G/4G signal in most of the subway tunnels. 

So much better than metro Washington DC's WMATA subway system - once the train goes underground before even entering the DC boundary, there's absolutely no cellular signal.  Zero wifi anywhere, either. 

That's why I hate riding the metro here in DC area.  It's either boring or torture.

Looks like NYC will have free wifi pretty much everywhere across (and there's already plenty of free wifi over lots of Manhattan). 

For example, at one of the many subway stations in Manhattan, the powerful wifi signal reaching all across the station delivers more than 50-60mbps as measured with speedtest.  It's insane, and so nice for those who have to wait 30+ minutes after midnight.  NYC is a fun place to visit, if you know how to enjoy the city.
