  • The first killer app for 5G wireless may not even be mobile
  • In the year or so since this article was written, I've attended several "5G summits" at conferences and taken an online course (by IEEE) on 5G technology. All of these are said the same as Larry has about the first "5G" technology to be deployed will be for fixed-location internet access, typically carried over mmWave frequencies, starting at 28 GHz in the US.

  • How many MIT grads does it take to hook up a light bulb?
  • While I was in college, my father couldn't believe that I didn't know how to fix is tube-based CB radio. He also didn't understand why they didn't teach vacuum tubes but the mid 1970s. "Why am I paying all this money for an engineering education if you can't fix my CB rig?"

  • Self-driving cars will save money and lives as they destroy jobs
  • The productivity gains from driverless cars will be enormous. Think of how much time you spend commuting. If you could be working during your commute. You'd either get more work done or spend less time in the office. If other people are in the car withyou, you could focus on talking to them, drinking, or ignoring them and spend the time on your phone.

  • Self-driving cars will save money and lives as they destroy jobs
  • You're not the only one writing about how self-driving cars might eliminate jobs. OTOH, having a driverless car means you get to be more social if you're riding with someone else. See "Eliminating the Human" by David Byrne https://www.technologyreview.com/s/608580/eliminating-the-human/
