Ouch, what a bad year to start up in that business.

IMO a nuclear japan is still a solid idea. History (and if I recall, Sentai’s Night Raid 1931) shows that an energy-importer Japan could be a bad call…and it took a freak tsunami and over 40 years to KO the nuke plant, but it seems like Japan’s solar energy grid idea would be KO’d by every cloudy day…

Boosting shipments, like the article says, until the Trade War gets serious in a few months.

I heard one example… Seafood from the U.S. to China is subject to retaliatory tariffs, so demand in China is down.

That seems odd, that seafood would go USA->China, as so much of the seafood I see in stores comes from Chinese fisheries. :question:

I ordered the Amazon Fire Stick last night, anyone used one of those yet?


We use a Fire Stick to watch all the stuff on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and a few others that I’m too tired to remember. We really like it a lot!

I like it, it’s a total app machine, but it seems like most of the stuff is Prime and I haven’t got that yet.


BTW, what’s the cheapest streaming stick that I can, well, stick into my TV and do Screen Mirroring with?

I’m curious because my pal’s ~1 year old 4K TV is getting finicky and will allow casting but no longer allows for mirroring. Mirroring also doesn’t require an internet connection.

My ancient Roku 2 can do this, but I’m interested in a stick, so I don’t have to worry about a power brick [or having to take my Roku 2 out of my home setup and put it back every time :wink:]

…Mirroring uses Wi-Fi direct, which theoretically could work without being on a wifi network, but do any sticks allow it? I notice on my Roku that, for security, it only seems to mirror with devices on the same wifi.


I don’t know how it works, but I noticed that my Roku allowed my computer to stream from a different WiFi network. Considering that when I noticed this, I couldn’t use Google Cast in the same setup, I wonder how they found each other in the first place?

Hey bud, I would go with that Amazon FireTV Stick. I just downloaded the Adult Swim app, free, streams all ya want. :slight_smile:


There is a security or maybe intentional flaw in Roku’s mirroring . It allows devices that are close enough to mirror even if they are not on the same WiFi . I assume it’s to make it easy for when a friend or family is over to connect ,but it’s kind of to simple . I imagine people in buildings that are right next to each other have people accidentally connecting all the time and think someone hacked thier wifi .
