It may not seem like much to you, but think about all the other people it would effect. @Sanguine  and @QueenCatofAragon say they have slow connections. Just think of how much a little more connection speed could change their lives.

No, this is not direct sat. this is backbone sat... It is still going through terrestrial bricks and mortar. So cellular antennas (radio) converts to digital wire to the main office, converts to sat sig (radio) back to an office somewhere that is plugged in to the net. STILL gonna be stupid latency. It has to be.

That isn't what they are claiming. Seeing is believing though. These LEO satellites will be 25 times closer than the ones out there now. But the constellation is going to be immense. Won't be able to swing that dead cat without hitting a damn satellite.

Considering their purpose, I don't think this is their purpose. Jussayin.

Right. The whole premise of the thread. Turning people into sentient robots.

That’ll probably continue indefinitely for me.  My carrier, U.S. Cellular, has 4G coverage for 99% of customers.

Guess who’s in the 1%?  😳
I say this to Beto fans, Trump fans, all fans of politicians: it is un-American, ridiculous, and dangerous to be a fan of a politician. They aren't pop stars. Support them if you agree with their policies. Criticize them when they go wrong. They are servants, not celebrities. —— Matt Walsh

@QueenCatofAragon

A lot of this is going to depend on who gets the slice of the pie. Meaning which telecom companies are going to be willing to spend the money on the infrastructure. As with anything else be sure the nanny state will have their say. You might be in a place that will be a dead spot no matter what.

All this is going on and what are people concerned with? The ssdd

Thanks for that like.

Self-fulfilling prophesy at its finest, and it leaves me with no doubt that all the carefully selected buzzwords and emotionalist catch phrases used to elicit the specific desired public reaction on any issue are indeed calculated, carefully selected to turn the herd toward or from a concept, person, or belief.

Why I watch little on television, and am wary of what I watch.  It's tempting to get a dozen televisions and lock them in a soundproof room with random channels on, just to cloud the electronic genome....

Scientists Call for a Ban on AI-Controlled Killer Robots

https://futurism.com/scientists-ban-ai-killer-robots

Killer Robots

Killer robots are coming for us all.

But rather than a T-1000 spewing one-liners, autonomous weapon systems like drones could end up replacing human soldiers on the battlefield entirely, given enough time.

But is it ethical to have an artificial intelligence call the shots and decide to take a human life?

Thousands of Chinese Fans Paid to See a Virtual Hologram Singer

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwj6q9H12OngAhVoJTQIHTgBDuUQFjABegQICRAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Ffuturism.com%2Fvirtual-idol-hologram-luo-tianyi-lang-lang-live&usg=AOvVaw3VRgGCzrgGZkkSRO6LpJ3l

Hologram Performance

Thousands of fans convened at Shanghai’s Mercedes-Benz arena on Saturday to see an unusual show: a virtual hologram singer named Luo Tianyi, accompanied by world famous Chinese pianist Lang Lang.

But rather than basing the holographic performance on a particular human performer’s movement and voice — the way holograms of Michael Jackson and Tupac have “performed” on stage over the last decade — Tianyi’s performance is the result of six months of hard work by roughly 200 production staff, as the South China Morning Post (SCMP) reports.

She's pretty hot...for a cartoon character.  I guess this helps to explain why so many Asians are marrying their non-sentient robots.  And stuff.
We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.

The problem in China is that their one child policy has killed too many girl babies so now there isn't enough women to go around.

I think the Japanese are close to or are at negative population growth.

But that isn't the problem there. They are just plain weird.

@bigheadfred 

I've worked with a few H1Bs from China, and I am compelled by experience to agree with your overall assessment, there's some weird there.  I really like my US Citizen friend who hailed from Taiwan, though.  That Scientist is the salt of the Earth.  He preceded me in the layoffs by a couple years and moved to San Hoser. CA.
