US Air Force shows off latest all-electric flying car, says it 'might seem straight out of a Hollywood movie'

Oddly Enough...

I sort of get the point of these vehicles for short low level stealth trips across a border, achieving a difficult location or a quick aerial reconnoitre during a mission. The 18 rotors are likely to have some degree of redundancy too. They are also likely to be cheap in military terms. I can definitely see the police wanting these as part of close surveillance or crowd control. So will they be in the shops for Christmas?

It's been five years since Windows 10 hit: So... how's that working out for you all?

Re: Scamming doesn't pay. Or, well, not as much as Nadella may've hoped.

In a lot of ways I can understand why Redmond wanted to take the Apple Walled Garden approach, and as the family 'techie' it's a relief to not be called out to fix inept tinkering anywhere near as often, or fire up Regedit.

That being said, the inclusion of so much telemetry, or such & such "wants to use your location" drives me up the wall at times. That is unforgivable.

Hate it

Would love to bin Win 10. Hate the interface, telemetry crap etc.

Except it unfortunately runs my music hardware/software quite well, and hasn't crashed once since installation five years ago, with heavy use. Yeah I could go Apple, but have already sold a kidney for the music gear.
