Even for fiber I believe the requirement that your provider installed at your termination point is to only provide 8 hrs. of backup power (there is a small battery in the box they installed at your residence). After that 8 hours your fiber will go out unless it is plugged into some other type of power backup source.

No, other rockets can re-ignite their engine to control where it will enter (like the 2nd stage of a Falcon 9 which does burn-up/re-enter the atmosphere and is destroyed). The Long March 5B can not reignite its engine due to its design so it is indeed an uncontrolled reentry.

I don’t see the point of the last paragraph. What should police use then? Horses? Maybe they should just buy Chinese made vehicles, would people be happier then?

Also not being mentioned is the LiFePO4 cells are much safer.. no thermal runaway and in accident they don’t self-ignite when exposed to oxygen.

What are the gel pellets made of? Are they safe if someone eats them?

The actual controls during playback has always been much better than Apple TV’s or especially the DVD player on macOS. With Apple TV (on macOS) there is always stuttering if you use the arrow keys to skip ahead a bit and no preview thumbnails when you scan through the progress bar.. constantly feels like you are dealing with a poorly written service.. Amazon’s works flawlessly.

Considering the number of articles I’ve seen about electronics simply being dumped in other countries for "recycling" is there any more details about who and where this stuff is actually getting recycled?
