Re: MSFT factor
mhh-- Wow, that article! I am pretty sure it was brain cells and a different article. I'll try to find it.

Many times reality is stranger than fiction and science fiction, don't you think?

Re: MSFT factor
Not human brain cells.. but human genes? Although I'm sure someone has probably tried to transplant brain cells, too... (but that's probably not a viable route due to rejection of foreign cells by a host body's immune system.)

Re: MSFT factor
I have seen enough sci fi and horror movies to know that this is a terrible idea. Of course, the ethical dilemmas are a bigger issue, but this is how you end up with ape overlords.

Re: MSFT factor
Mhh — I read this week somewhere that they have implanted human brain cells in chimpanzees creating super chimpanzees. I wonder, where is the ethics and responsibility in those animal experiments? Humans are creating and manipulating other species, and what are they doing with them? Putting them in cages for the rest of their life or killing them? Certainly those experiments don’t go public.

Re: MSFT factor
Srufolo — The Crown is a good show, yes. Yes, and she served in WW2. How cool that your mother was contributing to your learning of history. It was probably great to compare what The Crown shows with what your mother remembers. I am sure she shad a god time sharing those memories. :) Very cool.

> "Do you think  they are investing thousands of dollars in experimenting to make smarter mice to stop there?"

I think that these types of projects should be "basic research" -- since no one really knows how genetics and intelligence correlate, let alone have any kind of causation!

Re: MSFT factor
@Susan Fourtane Always been a big fan of Queen Elizabeth. I watched The Crown because my sister turned me onto it. I was surprised she served as a mechanic in the army. Also, we were watching it with my mother who is 95 and it was so funny how she was throwing in her own stories of what she remembered as a girl about the Royals.

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
