re: Elon Musk says robots may start killing us within 5 years - MamouTiger65
I don't see it as that crazy. We already have drones that are flown by humans, but its not crazy to think someone is working on an algorithm that could fly better than a human and scan for targets just as accurately. Military already uses robotic mules to carry supplies. I could see a robot being ma...

[quote]It doesn't take 60 for a bill to pass. It takes 60 to beat the filibuster. [/quote] Didn't mean to imply it did. [quote]For federal appointments (judges), not legislation. [/quote] This part is true at least for now. Reid said it wasn't off the table to change it for legislation too...

re: Question about the nuclear option - MamouTiger65
The nuclear option just changed the senate rule stating that you need 60 votes to end debate or filibuster. It didn't change how many votes you actually need to pass any legislation or appointments. ...

re: Not to rub salt, but why didn't the comet probe use plutonium for power? - MamouTiger65
[quote]The article I read said they would just have to wait a few months until the comet orbits to a position where the probe will get more sunlight. This mission began 10 years ago. Another few months isn't gonna kill this mission.[/quote] I heard the same. It also had enough battery power when ...

re: Minimum credit card charges? - MamouTiger65
[quote]surely fees can't be over $0.50 across the board..? [/quote] They get charged a couple of different ways. There is a flat fee per swipe so something in the $.12-$.25 range. Then they also have to pay a percentage of the transaction. Depending on the risk and (debit/credit) this is in t...

re: Executive Orders - MamouTiger65
Executive Branch enforces the law. He is choosing not to enforce it through executive order. The next president can create a new executive order overriding that. It has no permanent status. Legislative branch, Congress can pass a law overriding his order if there wasn't already a law in place abo...

re: Amazon Echo - this is how it starts - MamouTiger65
[quote]I can't imagine they would have it speak at all when not specifically asked to. [/quote] I was thinking more like suggested items show up on Amazon. Mentioned movies show up for Prime streaming. Web ads start to be Amazon ads for things you are talking about. Its similar to how they wa...

re: Amazon Echo - this is how it starts - MamouTiger65
This doesn't seem much different than what most smart phones can already do. I guess being always on and shared by a household makes it different. They should have integrated Fire TV with it. Will it use what it hears to then suggest purchases on Amazon? ...

[quote]Is say Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are comparable.[/quote] Australians aren't big fans of their natives or Asians. I did go out with a group in Melbourne that included a black guy. He got a lot of attention, not negative, just because there are so few of them. Didn't see many m...

re: Good High-Yield Savings Accounts? - MamouTiger65
Check with local banks and credit unions. Mine offers a checking account with 2.4% APY if you make a certain number of transactions and have a direct deposit each month. You can do this for up to $10K. Its not much, but its more than a savings account or CD is returning right now....

re: What are the limits on executive orders? - MamouTiger65
The next President can undo an executive order, basically create his own executive order. The courts can also say that his action is unconstitutional. Congress could pass specific laws that counter his order, but he would just veto those. Congress could also cut funding to areas that make his EO's i...
