I'll look forward to seeing your documents on the web
Oh and cars - you know that these idiotic wireless keys that automatically unlock your car doors are a godsend for car thieves? A simple relay and the car is open - that's done in Europe.
The wireless keys where you physically have to press a button are already insecure - just record the signal and you can open the car without any issues, however it does actually require you to wait for the owner and doesn't allow you to try and "fish" for an empty vehicle.
SSD - actually I do have an SSD -> as 34nm Intel SSD - bought after it has been around for several months and proven itself in the market.
I.e. proven technology and not the newest junk (makes me think of OCZ).
30 feet for wireless networks also sounds a bit too pessimistic on your side - the garden is about 10 or 15m long - (not sure which, one is the length of the cable of out lawnmover and its just a tad shorter than the garden) - I'm pretty sure I am picking up the signals from the houses opposite (how else can I get 14 networks) which also have a garden of their own.
It is definitely much more than 30 feet (10 metres) in less than ideal conditions.
And actually, yes, people also buy routers to use laptops in their garden - but mainly to use it anywhere in the house, which also means it needs to be powerful enough to go through a few walls.
Solar panels - you haven't read my post again.
Can you actually read?
Ah, I forgot, you're from the US - they possibly don't teach you to read.
You pick out a few words and comment on them.
Just to add a few points:
Mobile in your shirt pocket - who does that? I don't, my grandfather who actually has a pacemaker doesn't either. In fact, nobody in Europe I know does that - but maybe Americans do potentially stupid things more easily (yes, it isn't yet proven phones are harmful, but no need to make sure they will be if they are)
On this note:
I don't drive - what's the point? A developed country has a functioning public transport system.
-> Food: Uses of pesticides and medcine etc. is more closely regulated in the EU than the US -> so blame yourself.
Also, if you look at environmental damage, the US is pretty much at the forefront (with the exceptions of industrial sites in Africa/China/South America, some of them operated also by European companies).

So much for technology...
