Part of that was because until 2013, the naturally occurring genes that could indicate a risk for breast cancer were patented. The company, Myriad Genetics, charge $4000 per test to look at the 2 genes, when that price would cover a full sequencing of 20,000 genes. It look litigation to the US supreme court twice for Read more

Which of David’s incredibly road worthy vehicles did Kristen get into in order to go to the salvage yard? Did she stay with David, sleeping on his workbench which doubles as the sofa? How much rust did she inhale by being in his presence?

Because your “budget” dumb TV would be at least $800 or more expensive compared to the smart TV. The smartest feature of your TV, as long as it is ever connected to the internet, is to track your usage, determine what you are watching, and sell that information to advertisers and other 3rd parties like google, amazon,

Honest Question: Why are the profit margins so small on sedans and smaller vehicles vs Crossovers/SUVs.  We hear it all the time but I don’t get the WHY part of it all.  What are the economics behind the statement?

*Ahem* same ONE company... If it’s not Zenni Optical (or some other small Chinese brand selling direct online) it’s all made by Luxottica. Luxottica: We’re not a monopoly, we only control 80% of the market with no real competition! Read more

the only Time I called was also on a Nissan Rogue. The driver clearly had a flat. That they were continuing to drive at 30 MPH on. I attempted to get their attention with flashing lights and horns and a bit of waving at a red light. They ignored me and continued on. With smoke and chunks of tire aimed at my new car, I Read more

Essentially, this scenario with Bob’s Jet Company (I assume it’s different than Bob’s Discount Jet Company) depends on the type of contract between BJC and the DoD. There is a type of contract called Fixed Firm Price. Basically, the DoD says they’ll pay x. If the program takes more than x, BJC needs to pay the Read more

They’re not saying that? He’s the most punch-able one they’ve gotten in a while.  I get the urge to ball my hand into a fist every time he comes on the screen.   Read more

Apologies if I came off a bit... well, argumentative like most comments seem to be. Hopefully between the two of us more Americans are enlightened on how our government (and Kinja) is supposed to work.

I feel like adding the ‘up for reelection in 2020' is just silly to add. The entire house of representatives is up for reelection every 2 years. Do you really not understand that? A simple ‘the next election for The House is November 2020' at the end would have sufficed. Read more

I haven’t used it personally, honestly the only time I bother is for work drives and they have a tool they require I use which they bought. But anything that actually writes over the data should work for the average user. Kind of like all internet security, a determined bad actor could find a way, but the goal is to Read more

I tried that and the funkiness didn’t go away. But it’s been working fine since the format. There was also a recall where they reprogrammed it for updates that I had done a few days ago, but I don’t know if that would have fixed my issue or not as it had gone away by then. Unfortunately this was almost half a year Read more

Sorry, I should have been clearer, it is a fast format of the car’s infotainment storage. The way storage is set up, usually and in a simplified manner, is there is a table of addresses on the drive telling where data is stored, and then the data itself. A basic format just deletes the table of addresses. This is Read more

For at least one model year of one model of car from one manufacturer, it’s possible. In my 2018 Outback, you go to the settings and near the bottom of one of the system menus is ‘factory reset’. It unpaired my phone (so my phone was trying to connect and the car didn’t know it) reset android auto, wiped out my apps, Read more

This is obviously a bad government program and needs to get shut down immediately for wasting taxpayer’s time and money!  ...wait.
