Oak Ridge Tennessee Thorium Reactor worked for twenty years, fits in a 40’x40’’ room or on semi truck, requires no massive water cooling, requires Thorium pellets with minimum prep, disadvantage you can’t easily build a bomb out of the material left over which is why Nixon canned it.
The Chinese will be hitting us over the head with our own tech. Sputnik all over….
The overall size of a Thorium Reactor means one or many 2 or three can fit in a sub-basement of a hospital, office building, factory or Jay Leno’s garage.
The sand on both the east and west coasts of India is nothing but Thorium in it’s natural state it is mildly radioactive. Which is why the Indians are working on their own designs (they started years before the Chinese) but the Chinese beat them to a working 100% Thorium Reactor.

The climate radicals won’t accept that fact. So yes, if they have their way, energy production will not be able to keep up with demand. If they get their way. Hoping for more rational minds to prevail.
At one time whale oil was the fuel of choice. We transitioned to something better. When that happened there were howls of protest from people that said it would never work. But after a few years the transition was over and things got better. We are going through such a transition now. There are howls of protest and people insisting that it won’t work. They are simply wrong. We can’t afford to not make this change.
The Chinese are working very hard a Thorium reactor is already built (able to support 1000 homes) and currently under going testing, if it works the way want, a 100,000 home reactor also in the works. The Chinese are very motivated like going from zero to many high speed rail systems in 15 short years.

OLED is a compromise that isn’t better for the end user long term. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OLED#Disadvantage
OLED STILL SUCKS WHEN COMPARED TO LCD…. OLED sucks the juice when the background is white, color accuracy is off, and it’s total life time use is less than LCD, there won’t be many 7 or 10 year old computer screens working with OLED, just more trash for the landfill. After all in the Samsung tradition you can throw it away because you need to upgrade the OS.

But you don't realize that corporations also have freedom to not be required to provide the software and services to allow for third party app stores. How would you like it if you sold lemonade on your street and were told by the government that you had to sell your neighbor's lemonade and give the profits of that lemonade to your neighbor? Apple works very hard and deserves the right to not have to share its app store profit with its competitors.
Google has no problem with alt-stores. Why is Apple special?
Epic tried it on Android and it DID NO WORK……their store flopped badly.
