Comments on: Palm Announces New Heads of Developer Relations

Ben and DionYou could knock us over with a feather: Palm has announced two new high-level hires, and they're not Apple Inc alumni! Via the Developer Network Blog, SVP of Marketing Katie Mitic has named Dion Almaer and Ben Galbraith of Mozilla Bespin and Ajaxian fame as the new showrunners for Developer Relations. Both men have written separately about the news on their personal blogs, with an obvious enthusiasm for web technologies and openness that should prove refreshing to developers on that other smartphone platform.

Goodbye native app developers!

CFreymarc @ 9/28/2009 9:35:46 AM #
These two hires show that not only are they not commenting on requests to do third party native code on the new platform, they are flipping off the command line junkies as they exit the station.

Your call guys! But whom you leave behind will go elsewhere. Become very welcomed and will remember this slight for decades to come. The whole world cannot be run on script languages.

Right now I'm posting using a netbook which weighs less than three pounds.

In my jacket pocket is an even smaller UMPC which weighs a little more than half a pound and is about twice as thick as my Palm TX. It can connect through wifi or tether off my Pre through Bluetooth. It boots up in ten seconds and resumes from sleep in three. The day is rapidly approaching when your PDA will be a tiny Windows or Linux PC with a solid state drive. Maybe next year, maybe sooner....

this is 2009, not 1999. this is the age of the cloud.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing

no removable hard drives are needed since all of your data is now on the cloud. if you lose or break your device, you just get a new one. and you can still access your data from any other connected device - ie PC, smartphone etc. and since your data isn't on the actual device, it's very secure if you lose it - you simply change your cloud password. and a credit card number is all you need to make transactions.

In the future, there will be a persistent, global interplanetary Internet with information carried by manipulating the natural neutrino flux put out by the sun. Your information will be anywhere you need it and will be downloaded directly into your brain through a cyber implant. And passwords will be unnecessary because by then we will have all been assimilated into a single collective mind which will work for the betterment of all species. Resistance will be futile.

Choices are part of a free society. Some will want to choose two or more devices some may want to choose just one. The choice will be based on how much we can afford not what is the "best" choice. Is that a real choice?

Regardless of how content is delivered it still belongs to the individual, based on circumstances, choose to be part of a collective whole or may choose not to if one choice is the goal.

May have to go it alone with people that want more than one solution. One is not a choice a minimum of two is needed to have a choice ... just some thoughts.

The future of choices or consequences?

There is no reason why people can not choose a PDA with a removable hard drive. If a customer chooses to upgrade their device via courier all they need to do is remove their content (hard drive) and send the unit back. Recycling is good for the environment. The new device just has to be able to read the hard drive. The consequence of not having this choice is delayed productivity and risk of lost data.

Eco-drives can power next generation PDAs offering good back up to e-motion. This will assure productivity does not suffer as a consequence of lost power.

If you have ever transferred content from one PDA or smart phone to another you may see the logic in a removable hard drive. A removable hard drive would take a fraction of the time.

Perhaps there was no purpose in the past for removable hard drives? Perhaps people put more content on PDAs and smart phones than in the past?

Change is a consequence of people's choices nothing more.

Paranoid schizophrenics are notoriously difficult, if not impossible, to analyze. Many analysts would say that they are simply "unanalyzable" - that the psyche of a paranoid schizophrenic is utterly impenetrable. For example, Freud says that because with paranoid schizophrenics the transference is essentially negative, "there ceases to be any possibility of influence or cure".

What does that have to do with innovation or removable hard drives?

Ones illness is not an issue here. We are sharing some thoughts that not all understand that does not make a person ill. To be understood is not a right it is a choice. If people choose to understand they will. i have no right to judge the intellect of another even if they do not understand me.

There will always be a place in the world where people can be understood. The Internet would not exist if it were not for innovative people.

If fear were a sickness ... the cure would be trust.

Back to innovation.

The removable hard drive has a purpose. Only has to be enough people that see value in a removable hard drive for it to be of value. Not everyone must choose a removable hard drive.

i have chosen not to put my face on the Internet for privacy reasons ... that is still my right. You are one person with your own thoughts. I do not need/want to know what you look like your thoughts are enough. Can't build much with a picture. Need the thoughts more than the picture as the thoughts are what we build with not a face.

Wasn't this the guy who in the 90s tried to convince us all to give up our PCs for thin client computers (made by his company of course) which ran under a network operating system which sounded a whole lot like a deeply centralized, corporate version of today's cloud?

Watches video....

Yep, he's just pissed because he's not getting credit for an idea that he "thought of" first. Of course given the prominence of Oracle in back end database software, he's probably making a ton of money off the "water vapor" that is cloud computing -- just not as much as he wants to make.

Do some people see value in having a removable hard drive in something like a we-com virtual wallet? This data has been stolen in the past and present so it seems a good thought to think of ways to minimize identity theft. Do some people see value in PDAs with removable hard drives that interact with such sensitive and critical data?

Any thoughts?

Most of us already have a "removable hard drive" in the form of the nearly ubiquitous SD and microSD cards which fit into our devices. The iPhone and the Pre are something of an anomaly in that they don't have a removable media slot. Future webOS devices are likely to add one as Palm struggles to differentiate its offerings and get them out of the iPhone's shadow. This would leave Apple as the lone hold out from the removable media bandwagon. It will be a huge outlier as it is likely to remain wildly popular. But for the most part most mobile devices already have a "removable hard drive" and will continue to do so for a long time.

Cane is always drunk, so far as I can tell.

I'd be in on this. The last drinking game I played was "Slippery Sixty", although you seppos probably know it by some other different weird name. You drink a shot of beer every sixty seconds for one hour. I apparently was so drunk afterward I tried to pee on the host's lounge room wall. I don't actually remember it so as far as I'm concerned it never happened

On another tangent, tequila is evil. My worst hangovers ever were the result of tequila. It's second only to red wine for headaches, IMO.

Thanks for your thoughts. Guns don't seem to fit with peace, however have some thoughts on how to make guns more accountable with we-com virtual wallet interaction. The gun can only be used by the owner that matches the finger print. The gun interacts with the wallet which clears the person as the owner of the gun.

Would love to share a drink once we have won the war as agreed. Being that some are in a battle for peace it would be irresponsible at this time to lose my wits. Perhaps a non alcohol bear will pass, though right now do not seem to have the time to drink.

Thanks for the kind offer.

Must be something about the damn game. I honestly thought it would be a piece of cake. 'What's a shot of beer, anyway?' i thought. 'Not like it's bourbon or anything.'

Twenty shots in, and I was getting that special kind of talkative.

Forty shots in, and the room was spinning.

i know i'll regret this but here goes -

1. why would anyone want a large, clunky, power hungry, failure-prone (moving parts) removable hard drive when a microSD card is so much better for so many reasons? and why in the hell and when would they want to remove it and carry it around separately and increase its risk of loss?
2. the data is only as secure as the security protocol used regardless of whether the storage is removable or not.

RE: Removable hard drive

Great question.

1. Cards are great for transferring data however it still leaves data on the hard drive. Some people may want their data and financial data.

2. From past experience we know data has been acquired from hard drives left in PCs. This can happen to PDAs and Smartphone's too. For 100% assurance ones data and financial data does not end up in the wrong hands can be accomplished with removable hard drives. Solid state hard drives are used in PDAs all that must be done is engineer them to come out for those that want this added security.

Who do we listen to those that would deny the logic in offering removable hard drives or those that see value and purpose for such a choice?

Not every one is going to want this all we need are enough to want it to justify the investment in the choice. If more people want it that is great as long as there are enough people that want such a choice all is good.

Our we-com prototype will include a removable hard drive as a consequence of the nature of the data. This will be a choice if the customer wants to fuse the hard drive that is fine too. We just want to make sure everyone has a choice.

Our thoughts are for peaceful purposes. Building a we-com industry was thought of in a time of peace. We did not choose this war others did. Once peace is restored we will get back to what we chose to build with our thoughts as agreed.

Well back to innovation.

Some see value in a removable hard drives. For example those that want to upgrade hardware can do so without any down time. Just remove the hard drive and place into the new unit. The data does not stay with the old unit it moves with the person that owns the content. Not everyone wants their content so this may not be a choice for all people.

Just some choices.

The content of a wallet most people want.

E-cash, e-credit, e-ID, e-driver's license, e- photos. What else do people want that they may choose to have in a we-com virtual wallet that they would want to securely contain and choose to move to upgrade hard ware without leaving the content behind?

To place my current content into another Smartphone will require that i enter all the content into the new unit manually. We are talking about over a year of content. This will take quite some time which is very limited at the moment. After doing all that i must delete all the content on the old Smartphone and have some sort of assurance that all my data is in fact removed before recycling. A removable hard drive will avoid this time consuming process and uncertainty.

Any thoughts?

:-(lol) thanks for your thoughts.

Transferring data still leaves the data on the hard drive. Not to mention the time it takes to delete all the data and the time it takes to make the transfer.

Health care would be an off topic issue. Though the health care industry does use cards which could be digitized as the back end is already digital. There is no additional expense to offer we-com interaction other than some hard ware and software upgrades. This expense would be offset by the security and efficiency of a we-com environment.

MicroSD cards would work fine as small credit and debit cards. One could engineer the we-com virtual wallet to have slots for all the major debit and credit cards though what of all the loyalty cards and gift cards they may need to be digital and simply loaded into the wallet from a Smartphone with a removable hard drive.

Slots for microCOM cards would work these could include one slot for gift cards and separate slots for debit and credit microCOM cards. Though the whole wallet can be 100% digital with no need for cards. With icons that load via IVPN to show the cards of choice this could replace the cards.

Thanks for your thoughts.

New applications require new thinking. Perhaps the removable hard drive was a head of the curve. Now application exists that will offer the customer better security of their content. The billions lost do to identity theft does not include all the time and labor it costs to resolve such issues. Better to keep people's content safe to begin with this saves time and capital.

Off topic: Once the war is over there will be more capital for peaceful applications of our capital, taxes and our time. Some can not profit during war ... blood money is not acceptable based on agreements. So we must seek solutions that encourage peaceful trade.

The web has not transformed choices just the way we may choose to interact with our choices. Virtual microCom cards and analogue microCom cards can work together. The removable hard drive is to assure the individual's content can move with the individual as a choice. Murphy's law http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murphy's_law is covered. If the wallet needs repair or replacement or upgrading the content of the wallet simply is removed from one unit and put into the new one ... this should take seconds.

all of the sensitive data is locked securely on the cloud. there is no needs to store it remotely. simply SFTP into the cloud secured server and download your data as needed. lose your device? no worries. just change your SFTP password. want to access your data from another device? another smartphone? another PC? no worries - just SFTP into the cloud and get your data. Change your data? no worries just change it once and sync it to the cloud - no need to update multiple copies on each device - each device downloads from the cloud.

Posting about something isn't "working on it".

The Internet is a fantastic information source, the various search engines the most powerful method of traipsing through that information. Trivial searches for things like "removable data storage" or whatever would have stopped this thread before it started.

Totally silly.

RE: Removable hard drive
e_tellurian @ 10/28/2009 11:10:39 AM #
Have data stored in the "cloud" does not take away the choice to have the data transferable efficiently. No one is saying the "cloud" is not a good choice. Why are some apposed to the customer having the choice to have their content move into devices of choice with little to no down time ... it's only a choice not something that is being dictated.

Some people do not have the time to move data around they simply want their data in the device of choice with little to no hassle or concern about their content.

If one we-com virtual wallet is loaded with content and the device needs repair or replacing engineering the choice to simply remove the hard drive and place it into a new unit seems logical.

Storing data in the "cloud" and on ones hard drive assures duplication. The "cloud" would offer back up as would the removable hard drive offer back up to the "cloud".

Is there a saying about putting all ones eggs in one basket? Murphy's Law http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murphy's_law billions of dollars have been lost/stolen do to identity theft is this very important issue to address as we move forward with new knowledge?

That was a very creative way to make your point. The war is not over untill 2011. We owe the people that sacrificed their lives something. The least we can do is not give up. The opium is funding the war. If the opium is burned and replaced with an alternative industry as agreed our mission will be a success. We can show what peace can do and why we do not choose war in the West. If the Saddam regime had picked up the innovation phone rather than the military phone we would not be at war. We can not change the past only learn. The old Saddam regime could have resolved their energy issue with a solar and wind kWh energy grid. We can still do that we can not bring back all the people they lost as a consequence of war.

Afghanistan used to be a base to train terrorist to attack the West. They are now running to Pakistan thanks to the Coalitions of the willing and NATO. Afghanistan can also trade kWh energy using solar and wind technology reducing the need for opium and training of terrorists.

We have lost many people to this war that were thinking about how to win. If we did not want to win peace we would have sent in machines and not people that were thinking on the ground the whole time. Their thoughts have help to find a solution that can sustain the peace so many lives were lost to achieve. We said we would never forget ... just keeping my word.

Gekko:

There are quite a few FTP programs in the App Store. There are a few that are highly rated like FTP On the Go, but it costs $7, which is a little steep. Also, there is Apple's MobileMe service for $100/year. There is an application made by Apple to access the iDisk on the cloud. Subscriber seem to like it a lot. I don't need it and I don't have the service.

Bloomberg radio doesn't work from Safari. It looks like it's still in WMA. However, the free Bloomberg app has a new audio section. It's broken up into several feeds, like First Word and Economy, so it's more like a series of podcasts. Alternatively, there are a few third party apps like Stitcher Radio (free) that apparently stream Bloomberg's live feed.

But these are two things that I don't use, so I'm no expert. Ask me about ordering movie tickets with Now Playing and skipping the lines on opening night. I can tell you about that.

RE: Removable hard drive
Gekko @ 10/28/2009 12:51:45 PM #

FTP and Bloomberg Radio stream are critical apps for me. i need phone, PIM, audio, basic web news/updates, and FTP file access. everything else is just fluff for me.

Too bad hard drives are thick, power hungry, and impractical for use in a thin cell phone. These phones come with 32 GB of flash, not hard disk. And my first iPhone ended up with a cracked screen. I was still using it three months later since capacitive touchscreens are amazing.

Cracked your screen? No problem. Pick it up and keep going.

Gekko, I only use the Bloomberg app to read financial news last fall during a boring class. If there was one benefit to the meltdown, it's that it led to some very entertaining reading and pictures of day-traders grimacing with their hands over their heads.

But the audio is a new feature for that app. If you're curious, go to an Apple store, download the program to an iPhone on display, and try it. FTP is pretty simple, and there are two options for Office, DocsToGo and QuickOffice. I bought QO, and the ease of transferring documents is unreal. Highly recommended.

How else would the customer get their wallet to the movie on time if there is not 24 hour service? How fast could the "cloud" replace the wallet? Perhaps one phone call/text or email and a courier come to your location with a new unit all in time for the movie?

RE: Removable hard drive

Are you assuming the we-com customer will want to store all their data in one place? Let the customer choose offering one choice sounds like a dictatorship.

Why not have a race. One person loads off the "cloud" and other simply switches hard drives and sees which is fastest. Would that help the customer decide which is the best application for a we-com virtual wallet. The beauty of our thoughts and budget is that the customer does not have to choose one as they will have both choices.

Is one choice really a choice or demand? On demand would be like contacting the "cloud" and delivering a new unit on demand so one gets to the movie on time.

Can a smart phone carrier block your IP address from WiFi if behind on the bill? It seems in some cases the WiFi connection is strong and free yet the smart phone can not access ones content via WiFi.

My understanding is that WiFi is open and not tied to any network. Is my understanding correct? Naturally one prefers to pay for ones services. However when the economy goes side ways and thinking people are compromised one can not help but learn more about the way we control people with cash flow. Limited cash flow seems to restrict some of us from paying our bills.

Innovation is how some people pay their bills. A lack of innovation is costing Canadians over $500,000 per year per soldier not including salaries.

Build a free WiFi network with help from advertising revenue. The add goes into a special folder which can be accessed at the customer's leisure. In Canada smart phone WiFi only works if your bill is up to date. When cash flow becomes an issue one does not have access to ones content. Lap tops with WiFi do not have these same issues.

How can we assure Canadian smart phones stay smart when cash flow becomes an issue? Such as when a war breaks out as a consequence of a lack of innovation that needs our capital to win.

To date Canadians have spent over $500,000 per soldier per year to have peace in Afghanistan and iraq. The coalition of the willing have lost many family and friends that no amount of money will resolve.

Perhaps we should tell the terrorists that the war is over and that Afghanistan and Iraq can choose sustainable peace via innovation.

Saddam's old regime started a war as a consequence of not seeking innovative solutions to their energy issue. The free people of Iraq can now choose peace so there is no need for terrorism the war is over Afghanistan can choose a better service sector than training terrorists. Other nations training terrorists can learn from the past decade that war is not a solution it is a consequence of the lack of freedom to choose innovation.

Peace,

Peace saves lives by encouraging innovative ways to avoid war. Afghanistan and Iraq can build a solar industry to help sustain their peace. This could have been done without war. Unfortunately the old Saddam regime did not listen to the people of Iraq. Instead waged war on Kuwait rather than seek an energy solution ... The rest is history.

Afghanistan was training people to terrorize the west. A consequence of war and lack of service industries.

Innovative solutions will sustain peace.

Please don't take this the wrong way. People suffering from true paranoia, or any other mental affliction, always have evidence to back up their claims. Their claims make perfect sense to them because they are based on observation. The problem comes in when observed actions and intentions of others are mentally distorted. The thing is, people with disorders are not aware of any distortion. I once dealt with a paranoid schizophrenic who produced several hand-written volumes proving to me that government agents were traveling in pickup trucks and through telephone cables to spy on her. I am not a doctor, so I'm not saying you are a paranoid-schizophrenic or even just paranoid. Something is wrong, however. That much is obvious.

This is nothing to be embarrassed about. It's a disorder. You need help. Visit a psychiatrist. Don't go to a psychologist, because what you are experiencing is outside of their ability to treat - you need a psychiatrist. Make an appointment - you don't have anything to lose.

Nuclear energy is not the same as nuclear weapons.

In the US, nuclear energy provides us with 20% of our electricity. Coal another 50%, and natural gas another 20%. Solar energy? Not even a fraction of one percent. The remaining ten percent includes a mix of hydro, wood, oil, and renewables.

That's just the numbers. For as expensive as they are, solar energy does not even break even unless heavily subsidized by the government. By comparison, nuclear energy in the US was built without government money. Not to mention, the bulk of construction occurred between 1970-1979. But let's neglect that. Let's talk logistics.

Solar energy is a peak source. What that means is that if you need energy at 2 am where there is no sun and the wind is still, renewables won't be able to provide it. You'll need a fuel that can be called upon 24 hours a day. What are our baseload sources? Coal, natural gas, oil, hydroelectric, and nuclear. The first three are fossil fuels, pollute, and emit CO2. Hydro is not infinitely scalable, as in, you can't build a hydro plant in the desert. That only leaves nuclear as the non-polluting, totally scalable energy source.

Renewables are great, and they need to be expanded, but you need to understand the numbers. We require lots of energy, and we require it at all times. Not just when the sun is shining or the wind is blowing. We can't replace fossil fuels with renewable energy. On the other hand, we sure do have the ability to replace them with nuclear energy.

Now for the love of god, shut up. You have no idea what you're talking about.

Oh, so not only are we replacing fossil fuels with solar energy, we are now doubling it's usage to power batteries? And how will this suddenly become economical? Also, how are you doing to create all of these lithium-ion batteries or lithium-polymer batteries without destroying and polluting the environment like the current manufacturing process does?

In short, you can't. To survive off solar energy, you need an enormous amount of money for solar PV or solar thermal installations, plus all of the manufacturing and raw materials to supply the silicon, battery internals, and support? Bullshit. What you're looking for is called unobtainium. Your solution sounds great, except for a few technical shortcomings. Your solution is then reduced to nothing more than a, "Wouldn't it be great if..." scenario.

In other words, you are offering no technical solutions. Instead, you're pedaling some sophomoric, hippie liberal naive agenda that assumes we can run the world off sunshine and bullshit. The fact is that our society craves energy. A nuclear reactor of the 1200 MW flavor can power a city the size of Cleveland by itself. And nuclear power plants in the US have a capacity factor of 90% - greater than any other source. It can be done profitably, providing thousands of jobs for the community, and without polluting anything.

I live in Pennsylvania, right in the epicenter of four reactor sites, considered the highest density of nuclear reactors in the world. I work in this industry. I know a thing or two about it, and it's going to take a little more than some wishful thinking to convince me that solar energy is the path to peace. Ironically, safe nuclear energy is.

Sure, you can recycle batteries, but that doesn't take away from the fact that you still have to create enough batteries to store terawatts worth of the world's energy. You're also neglecting operations and maintenance of solar panels. Trucks have to come and spray the silicon down daily in order to keep dust off and keep it effective. Solar energy has a capacity factor of about 20%, as does wind. Nuclear's CF is 90%.

The radwaste issue has been overhyped and overblown by hippies and liberals. We have the capability to recycle used reactor fuel, extract more usable fuel, and reduce the real waste to 1% of the original volume. We can then take that tiny bit of waste, vitrify it, and then ship it to Yucca Mountain in Nevada, where it will be buried under a mile of bedrock and never touch water for millions of years.

However, in the 1970's, Jimmy Carter was scared of third parties stealing plutonium during reprocessing spent nuclear fuel, so he outlawed it, hoping the rest of the world would follow. They didn't. Today, the US is the only nuclear country that doesn't recycle our waste. And thus far, nuclear material hasn't fallen into the wrong hands. Looks like Carter made a terrible choice.

Furthermore, Yucca Mountain has been scrapped by the far-left Obama administration. This is because Harry Reid has been opposed to the project for years, and now he got federal funding pulled in a scratch-my-back-I'll-scratch-yours swindle. All the while, they're trying to convince the people that a geological repository is unsafe. Meanwhile, all government waste is taken to SRS in South Carolina, vitrified, and shipped across the country by truck and rail to New Mexico at a site called Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP). There, the recycled government nuclear waste is buried deep beneath a salt bed. Water hasn't touched the site for hundreds of millions of years.

You see, we have already solved these technical issues with nuclear power. The true problem is government corruption and people who have an irrational fear of nuclear energy due to a lack of information and education.

I can go all day.

Solar energy production is efficient in a desert. Maintenance of solar infrastructure creates jobs. The nuclear industry produces energy too and has its own maintenance issues. In millions of years people will have to deal with the radio active material previous generations left behind for future generations to worry about. Solar and wind can help with future peace of mind. Solar can help sustain peace in a desert.

Bullshit. I guess the middle-school system up in Canada is pretty lousy, eh? You should have learned about half-life in science before the time your balls dropped. The radioactive fission products created in a nuclear reactor only remain dangerous for approximately 2000 years. We can store this waste deep underground in bedrock and assure its isolation for MILLIONS of years. By the time anything happens, it will all be stable lead. Harmless.

ET, it's clear you don't have much of a technical background. Energy is not your thing. We can't power our world off solar energy alone. We couldn't do it 30 years ago, we can't do it now, and it'll still be a struggle 30 years from now. We need nuclear power. It will be our primary energy source soon out of absolute necessity. The more we ignore it, the more we shoot ourselves in the foot.

Research the Westinghouse AP1000. American ingenuity, American design, unparalleled safety, thousands of megawatts waiting to be unleashed, and hundreds of thousands of jobs waiting to be created. A two-unit reactor site would require approximately 2000 full-time, permanent jobs. Jobs with good pay, benefits, and security. The sort of pay that can convince educated people to relocate and create jobs for other people in construction, retail, infrastructure, real estate, police, government, and more. And most of all, it gives us energy security.

Why is that so hard to see? Do some research for yourself.

ET, let me give you a little anecdotal evidence. My company recently did a pilot study of installing solar PV and solar thermal systems at existing power plants - two natural gas and two coal plants each. The reason they wanted to install them at existing sites is because you save on the balance-of-plant side. Nearly all power stations boil water into steam, which drives a steam turbine. If you build a solar installation on a current fossil fuel site and merge the main steam lines, you can find some considerable cost savings, right?

In one instance, the solar panels added an increased capacity of about 1%. And it only achieves that added power 20% of the time. When assessing the costs of the installation, even without having to build a new balance-of-plant from scratch, the utility would break even after a few thousand years. The point of the presentation? HEAVY GOVERNMENT SUBSIDY REQUIRED.

Solar energy is just not economical.

ET, follow me here. The EIA has hard data available on its website for every power station in the US. As of 2008, the combined total output of all US solar installations total 515 MW. That's half the size of a single nuclear reactor. For comparison, take a look at Palo Verde nuclear generating station. It's a three-unit nuclear site built in the middle of the Arizona desert. Three units, each rated at ~1400MW, creates 4200MW of electricity 24 hours a day. That's over four times the total capacity of all solar installations across the US, and that's just a single site! And guess what - Palo Verde is privately owned and operated, giving billions of dollars to the utility, investors, workers, community, and government annually. And it produces a real, tangible asset, without a single dollar of taxpayer funds. Doesn't that just boil your socialist blood?

Nuclear is the answer, not solar. If the Arizona desert can prove that nuclear is more economical than solar power in such a bright location, the rest of the world should heed its advice.

ET, look at the locations of power plants across the US. You will see a concentration across the eastern seaboard, the midwest, and California. Power plants are built near population centers, and the reason is obvious - transmission costs. In order to minimize losses, energy is carried by enormous voltage long distances. The farther it has to travel, the more it loses. It functions almost exactly like water pressure through a pipe. Therefore, even though it is very windy on the top of mountains, it is not feasible to install wind turbines there because of the costs associated with transmitting the power to the population centers. That is actually a problem with most renewable energy sources - wind, solar, hydro, and geo - they are usually located far from heavy population. The advantages of fossil fuels includes easy scalability and flexibility of site, except that they are heavy polluters. Nuclear power plants are the single, magical mix of scalability, location, and on-demand energy.

ET, you seem to have concerns about radwaste. Research spent fuel reprocessing. Look at what SRS does in the US. Look at what Areva does in France. Look at what Toshiba does in Japan. Even if the US sticks to its stupid decision to not reprocess fuel, we still have a solution to store the waste. Go to nrc.gov and research the Yucca Mountain site for yourself. Using probabilistic risk assessment, we have proven that this deep geological repository can isolate nuclear waste from the biosphere for at least one million years. Don't take my word for it - look it up yourself.

Did you look up Palo Verde yet? It's literally in the middle of the Arizona desert. Plenty of sun there, except it's shining down on the concrete of several containment buildings.

Yes, and that's just the problem. You're talking about kWh solutions while we actually require tWh solutions. Solar cannot provide enough energy, period.

And the storage of radwaste is not urgent. Some nuclear power plants in the US have already been running for over 40 years (Ginna, Nine Mile Point, Oyster Creek, etc), and all of the nuclear fuel that they have ever used is currently stored safely on-site. They probably won't need a geological repository for another 50-100 years, either. I think that is more than enough time for each country to select a suitable location to permanently store their waste.

By the way, do you have any idea of the volume of the nuclear waste we are talking about? The volume of used nuclear fuel from each reactor is equivalent to one pickup truck bed of waste per year. We have 104 power plants in the US and about 400 worldwide. That means we have about 100 truckloads of waste per year, and that accounts for 20% of our national electricity consumption. That is such a tiny volume of waste that it can be easily handled, wouldn't you agree?

Nuclear power has been made in the desert where there is little water and constant heat (Palo Verde). It has been made to withstand direct hits by category 5 hurricanes (Turkey Point and Hurricane Andrew). It has been made to survive a direct hit by a tornado (Davis-Besse and an F2 tornado). It has been made to withstand airline accidents or attacks (TMI). It can withstand large earthquakes (there are about 60 NPP's in Japan!). All of this is not so with wind or solar installations. A direct hit by a tornado would bring it to its knees. Did you know that if the wind blows too hard, wind turbines lock up and stop producing electricity?

How is it possible that these flaky, flimsy, tiny, expensive stations are the answer to our overwhelming electricity needs? Do the math. Renewables are great, but they will always just be a fringe source - something that's there, but can't be relied upon.

Remember the rolling blackouts in California a few years ago? California has extensive wind farms. As it turns out, the blackout was in the middle of a heat wave. During a heat wave, the wind doesn't really blow. Even though wind has a capacity factor of about 20%, they were only operating about 4% of the time when they were needed most. Especially in the modern day, when we are looking at electric cars to replace oil, how can we be hoping that the wind will blow at night so that we can drive to work tomorrow morning?

It's bullshit. It's a hippie liberal non-solution to a real problem - one that requires a REAL solution. Safe, reliable, clean nuclear energy.

Nuclear energy has evolved to become efficient. Solar in a desert will too. Afghanistan and Iraq can have sustainable peace with a solar industry free from nuclear waste.

Keeping the environment free from nuclear waste is a choice. If people want nuclear waste that is a choice. Let the people choose.

Here you go again with your technical bullshit and no supporting evidence. What don't you understand? Solar energy is horribly uneconomical. Even after decades of research and even more government subsidy, you lose money by installing solar panels. If the point of renewable energy is sustainability, how can you sustain financial losses to go with it?

104 nuclear plants are currently operating in the US. None of them received taxpayer money.

There is a reason why England wants to build 10 more reactors, Italy another 4, the US another 30, India another 50, and China another 100. Look at the technology compared to renewables. Do some research on the waste produced. Why are countries around the globe investing so heavily into nuclear? Think!!

You can't just say, "They should use solar power," and give no supporting figures. That makes you a moron. Rather, if I say, "They should use Westinghouse AP1000 installations because it can be built for $10B, break even at year 9, then generate $500M in annual profits thereafter for 60 licensed years, all the while creating tens of thousands of jobs, local infrastructure, and creating energy independence," then that sounds a little more well thought-out, wouldn't you say?

This isn't about choice. This is about what's right. If you choose solar, you're choosing energy scarcity, high costs, and poor economic growth. We've been trying this since the 70's, and it still has the same problems.

If your so right why insult me? Your facts are good you make good points. Solar has a place in a desert for those that do not want nuclear waste on their soil that is their right their choice. Solar will become more efficient as it evolves in a desert. Procuring mountains to dump waste is not cheap these are additional expenses that will continue as more waste is produced. Better not to create the waste in the first place.

Solar is cleaner and installs fast and efficiently.

Fake Jeff Hawkins @ 2/4/2010 1:03:24 PM #
The site is down to 10 posters and most of the posting is SPAMMING drivel from the e-imbecile. Many of the other posts are from someone who's spent much of the past decade Frequently Visiting Palm sites trying to spread FUD about the company. This entire off topic thread with the endless e-ranting and the Bosco dork's pathetic attempts to defend nuclear power plants should have been shut down a long time ago. I guess because it contains the only recent posting activity on PIC this crap was allowed to continue. This makes a mockery of Palminfocenter.

If you want to see PIC survive, elevate the dicscussion level. Otherwise PIC will disappear the way so many other sites have before. It's probably already too late.

Why not start your own thread your welcome here though we are seeking solutions. What is your purpose?

I upped the mobile comment cap up to 250, so that the more active discussions should be viewable in the mobile version. I may add some other tweaks later this week if anyone has any requests feel free to let me know.

I can use the full site fine, but I prefer the mobile site because of its speed. If you've got a story with 150 comments, it's going to be slow to load anyway. The mobile version speeds it up.
