    The military has been trying to get mesh networks of some kind up and running for years now. For example, the networked Stryker AFVs, the Land Warrior program, among others. This might be another means to that end. That, and if Zuckerberg sees potential profit in this sort of tech, bet your bottom Federal Reserve Note that Sergey Brin, Larry Page, Tim Cook, and whoever is running Microsoft this week will also see a few quid to be made in it, too.

    Mitt Romney is the one who created in Massachusetts a template for Obamacare. When you get that Obamacare tax penalty, thank Mitt for it.

Questions and Answers

  1. Posted to Facebook, Quora and Twitter

    Q: Why did Glock not make products in 7.62x25mm Tokarev or FN 5.7x28mm?

    If a Glock 20 can be rechambered for .460 Rowland or .50 GI by only replacing the barrel (and spring, unless you want an unreliable or straight-pull pistol), why can’t Glock make a dedicated product on these calibers?

    A: Economics – there simply isn’t enough demand for pistols in those calibers to warrant Glock GmbH’s investment of time and money to make it happen.

    Plus, for the smaller calibers (5.7x28mm and 7.62x25mm qualify as smaller calibers), the Gun Control Act of 1968 says that pistols in calibers smaller than 9mm can only be imported to the United States for law enforcement usage. So unless Glock is going to build a factory here in the States to manufacture them, it isn’t going to happen.
