      Did it reject the cans, or did it take them but not pay?

      Also, what's the logic behind the requirement for them to be un damaged?

      Surely they're crushed inside the machine for space??

        I assume by undamaged it means that the barcode needs to be fairly square on to be read. If there is a dent in the top/bottom that doesn't deform the cylindrical shape then I'd say it's fine, or even minor side damage as long as the barcode is intact. It's just to stop people crushing them and being mad that they can't get a refund then.

          On the solar side of things, got a quote to day for a 10 panel setup with 5.1MW battery after grants (and extra for an ad outside the house for a while) of 9900. If I went without a battery, they'd only do 8 panels and while I didn't get a price, it'd probably be around 6k after reductions I'd say, but I'm totally guessing on that one.

            In Denmark it's simple you turn up with any plastic bottle you get the cash. There are loads of people out and about collecting and returning them. Mind you a small bottle of water from a huxter shop will cost you near a fiver

              More sensible countries put the code on the bottom of the can.

                  No more crushing cans one handed to the six million dollar man theme tune!

                  Are they doing it on glass bottles or just plastic?

                          "Recall" seems like an unfitting thing to call this though, right?

Clearly the greatest trainer of all time but his domination of the sport here is too much and taking away a lot of the enjoyment imo. This is supposed to be one of the big showcase events in Irish NH racing and it's basically a set of WPM pre-Cheltenham trials. Boring.

                                                                                              You could make the same comment about APOB on the flat but even his dominance isn't as extreme imo.

                                                                                                A finance worker at a multinational firm was tricked into paying out $25 million to fraudsters using deepfake technology to pose as the company’s chief financial officer in a video conference call, according to Hong Kong police.

                                                                                                The elaborate scam saw the worker duped into attending a video call with what he thought were several other members of staff, but all of whom were in fact deepfake recreations, Hong Kong police said at a briefing on Friday.

                                                                                                “(In the) multi-person video conference, it turns out that everyone [he saw] was fake,” senior superintendent Baron Chan Shun-ching told the city’s public broadcaster RTHK.

They have targeted more the mixed reality market than the VR one. Some of the same problems remain in regards headset bulk, battery life etc but they have made some huge leaps in terms of the visuals. The screens inside it are suppose to be better to look at than any screen you can buy for your home and you can make all sorts of sick setups. There is a demo video of guy with a main sports stream and then 8 other games around it on different screens.

                                                                                                  The mad thing is that loads of videos have surfaces of people wearing them out and about, cooking, at the gym because you can still see the real world but augment it with things like timers over the pots in your kitchen, a movie on the train etc. It does feel when they sort out some of the problems along with bringing the price down many will choose to augment the world with mixed reality. It feels cool and also quite dystopian given the the solidarity nature of wearing this kind of tech.

I mean its not exactly seeing which cans a recycling machine will accept, but its still a big deal.

I mean its not exactly seeing which cans a recycling machine will accept, but its still a big deal.
                                                                                                      Had a google and read this. So there is a good chance we will see massive visual advancements along with the ability to bring the tech closer to resembling wearing a normal pair of glasses? That is pretty crazy to think about and would be a complete game changer for both AR and VR.

                                                                                                          Great interview though and I could listen to Louis and Nick talk for many more hours.

It must be a pretty good indicator of how bad things really are in parts of China compared to what we are getting sold.

It feels cool and also quite dystopian given the the solidarity nature of wearing this kind of tech.

My understanding is that would make the social platforms liable ​for anything that gets published by them. That feels like a stretch to think would ever happen given the corrupt system and the amount of wheels Meta probably greases but maybe the hands out on the other side that think they can bury them in lawsuits for huge figures is enough incentive to get it done.

It has been confirmed by the high stakes guys that bought it back in 2013, two years before PIO was released. Some random kid who had a maths degree and was grinding low stakes came across some theorical papers and turned them into the first solver.

                                                                                                                          How I created a poker solver and made $500k at the age of 23
