  • Be careful what you name your company
  • I would imagine that in 1976, the thought of their company getting into music two and a half decades later was at the forefront of their vision.

  • Marketers talk funnier than ever
  • I think a real definition of "courage" is recalling a phone that just started shipping for a battery fire problem. I may not like their phones, but I do have to give Samsung props for having the courage to recall the phones.

  • Steve Jobs never would have done that at Apple
  • Jobs' small tablet size argument is silly looking at it in context. The limits of placing elements on a touch screen were obviously good enough for a 3.5" screen iPhone that was introduced 3 years before the iPad.

  • Is China destroying the solar energy industry?
  • Why should we expect a solar panel to last 25 years? Because it is a fixed installation and has a price that should be amortized over 25 years, not 2 or 3. Do you get rid of your house because it is 3 years old? Do we tear out a bridge and replace it every 5 years? Some things are expected to last decades. I would expect a solar installation to be on the list. A solar panel and inverter does not have moving parts nor is it moved around (getting banged and dropped). There should not be anything that breaks if it is designed right (except maybe an odd tree branch falling on a panel).

  • What should NASA do next?
  • Drop a rover on the ice located in the craters on Mercury's poles. See if there is anything interesting there.
