Re: Lockheed Could “Fail to Deliver” F-35 Capabilities on Time.

I vote for killing off this turkey and building more A-10s. Salute2

Supposedly the USAF is putting together specs for an A-10 replacement. You'll forgive my skepticism if I think this is just an attempt to deflect criticism from the USAF's constant attempts to retire the A-10. The USAF rarely shows much interest in the CAS mission, especially the low-level mission. I'd actually love to see a new dedicated ground attack plane. Why not prop-driven? It would be super-cheap to build and operate, long loiter time, carry tons of ordinance, low IR sig, etc, etc.

The thing is there's a huge need for a plane like the F-35: a cheaper stealthy, multirole fighter that can replace aging F-16s and F-18s. And instead of replacing the A-10 (whose airframes, with upgrades, have a few decades of life still) the F-35 is the perfect complement. The F-35 can perform the SEAD/Air Superiority mission while the A-10s provide the CAS. It's a great tandem.

The problem with the F-35 is that it is designed for all 3 services, and you've ended up with a dog stuck in development hell trying to make something that works for everyone. The stupid VTOL requirement is especially vexing, as it creates a shape less suited for maximizing Navy and AF missions. And in the end, they've created planes that share a mere 20% common components, hardly enough to justify the shortcomings.

Lesson learned: build the plane for the mission, and stop with the Swiss army knives already.

I don't know, but it is clear many people don't know it.

There's a difference between know about something and caring about something. People know they shouldn't cheat on their spouse, but most do it anyway.

Also, self-driving cars can't come soon enough.

Wonder why the JD Power survey shows cord cutters are the least satisfied. I've had Comcast for about 10 years, then DirecTV for 2 hours, and watched as my bills kept going up every year. I was paying about $90 13 years ago for TV and internet, and by this year, that was $215 ($80 a month for Comcast, $135 for DirecTV). We downgraded to 25mbps internet only and got Vue, Netflix, Hulu, and I feel like my viewing choices are even better than before, and we are saving about $100 a month.

Yeah, had to understand. Benefits of cord cutting:
- Cheaper
- No commercials
- On-demand
- Binge watching

I cut the cord more than a decade ago, never looked back. Never happier.

One big minus might be if you're a sports fan (although some of that is online). That would definitely drag down the satisfaction ratings, especially in the US.

You know your game has completely failed when not even an Honest Trailer can generate conversation.

At least there's still some hope that get out of bed simulator Star Citizen might be good.

JD are you playing SC at all? or waiting for squadron42/retail version 1.0 like me?

I have DL'd a couple of the early alphas several months back or so and played them an hour or two. Might check out alpha 3.0 when it comes out. Maybe things have changed, but each alpha is 50+GB DL which takes forever where I live, so it's hard to get motivated to check out something that probably isn't that different from what I played before. I will probably wait until 3.0 to check it out again.

But yeah, SQ 42 is what I'm really waiting for.

At this rate the timer will hit zero on September 2nd at 8:30 pm EDT.

I didn't see the countdown timer. Is that for the year 2028? Any earlier would be out of character for them.

Russia's Doing A Superhero Movie - Guardians (trailer).

What, no Vodkaman?

I honestly have no idea what's happening in that trailer. This looks closer to Snyder's DC movies than Marvel.

Also, best comment on Videosift:

(Superheroes) seem like overkill when they could just send in Putin, riding a bear, to take down the entire enemy army.

AT&T Claims Google Fiber Error to Blame for Pole Attach Delays.

Land line internet should just be nationalized at this point. We don't have competing road or sewer systems, we shouldn't have competing landline internet, either. Let the government run it, let companies compete in the wireless frame where competition makes much more sense.
