My memories of my Asus netbook were not as rose tinted as yours. Underpowered with a comically small keyboard meant for typos. Poor screen resolution, making productivity difficult. Mine would shudder on 720p videos and absolutely choke on 1080p. The battery life was great though for the era, so all the more time to Read more

$150k is kind of nuts, as while they did leak something, the leak itself isn’t going to hurt sales. It’s not like they gave away the surprise ending to an M. Night Shyamalan movie. This is just setting an example of these two.  Read more

17/20. But there was a tell. Just the quality of most photos is better in hisolder” pics. It was otherwise very difficult.

This is what we are now. So jaded with content and entertainment that we need to see ever-increasingly weird, nonsensical, and fringe footage to take a notice to something. It can’t be someone playing a game on stream with witty banter anymore. It can’t be porn. It has to be some mentally deficient bastard child of Read more

Are those attendants or just a statue-chair? I mean, I’d appreciate the furniture support if I were packing those.

The missile one though...not in the same category of errant blank emails or service interruption. I mean, I feel bad for whoever sent that one out, but there could have actually been some serious ramifications with how people would react to that one.

I’ll agree with this general statement for the most part. Win 10 is snappier than Win 7. Although, I’ve had issues with Win 10 with some laptops. Dynamic power control can go haywire and either artificially slow down processor speeds even when plugged in or leach power when in sleep. Both affected bottom line Read more

While I’ve used all recent iterations of Windows, I’m still a fan of Windows 7. Maybe I’m stubborn and old school, but that’s been my favorite version, possibly of all versions. It’s not as pretty, but what it skips in aesthetics, it makes up for in simplicity and actually working as intended.

Would that make Fredericks of Hollywood the sad hot dog that has been tumbling all day on a 7-11 rotating grill then?

Stalk is my preference, but it seems like regardless of where you put it, people still go out of there way not to use it. Maybe there should be some type of automatic signaling. Like if you’re in motion over “X” speed and turn the steering wheel more than “Y” degrees, the signal comes on. It would be later than Read more

I don’t own a Tesla and have so-so feelings over Musk and his habitual Twitter stupidity, so I have no skin in the game. Just putting that out there before I say that this is a little bit of an unfair comparison. One will have a lot more design freedom when the product is a “hypercar” and the target audience doesn’t Read more

Inclusivity was decent in the old version, particularly for the era, but they definitely screwed up with Jitsu and Ninjor. They both got the full Fu-Manchu treatment that a lot of “Asian” characters got back then. But it almost seems silly to complain about given that this is a fictional universe that also happens to Read more

So make one of the faster non-supercar vehicles on the market, then throw an unusable steering wheel on it. What could go wrong?

Still impressive. A bicycle is a more complex issue. One has to account for linear wheels that may or may not be oriented the same direction while in use, as well as a tipping direction perpendicular to the direction of movement. That means that unlike the Segaway, the wheels themselves can not be part of the Read more

I’d challenge that notion considering the breakdown of mandatory and discretionary spending, where things like transportation (infrastructure) have been pinned at 2%, and education and housing both 6% each for a while. Meanwhile, military is 54% of discretionary and the bloated and mismanaged social security and Read more

A little. The global wealth dynamic won’t change from it and no wealth redistribution would come of it, so all that’s left is wanting to see someone die because they took advantage of a pre-existing system. I’d rather he lived and be forced to comply with an ultra millionaire wealth tax. Or better yet, go the Chuck Read more

The AI is probably serviceable. It’s the character movement animation that is lacking. Not only was a kind of basic, each enemy moved exactly the same way, which only further focused on the simplicity of the animation. They need some more randomization of animation cycles and maybe a couple different modes of movement Read more
