Then American car companies reverse-engineered Japanese cars to figure out how they lasted so long.

When I was importing, the *best* case scenario was a 120 day lead time to have product landed in the US, and that was only if everything went perfectly (which it usually didn’t). That was for a 3 month lead time at the factory, and then a month on the water/customs/trucking it to a warehouse, etc. Read more

I’m pretty sure that the number of people who need more than 128GB is minuscule these days. It’s not exactly a negative that actually impacts that many people. Read more

I’m guessing that Google got caught up in the same supply-chain issues that everyone else did and that it was easiest to just put out one color for now to help with inventory management. Fingers crossed that other colors will be released at some point? Read more

As someone who doesn’t use cases, the lack of colors beyond “plain black” is disappointing. I haven’t had a plain black phone in probably 6+ years. Read more

Bonus, when you decide to upgrade your $10 Walmart knives you’ll actually know how to sharpen and keep them in great condition?

There’s only a small amount of data out, but so far it looks like ebike users burn a comparable amount of energy to non-electric bike users. Apparently they go further and use them for more trips than traditional cyclists, so over the long term it all evens out. Read more

As noted in the article, it’s a loan.  They have to send it back once they’re done reviewing/riding/passing it around.

I sometimes wonder whether we need another French-style revolution to remind these fat cats that a 3% higher marginal tax rate isn’t the worst thing that could happen to them.

Oh, I totally *want* a massive and power-hungry PC that can churn out 100fps while glowing with nice bright blue LEDs (or whatever).... But I’m also cognizant of the fact that I don’t necessarily want to spend a grand to do so. Read more

I’ve been using GeForce Now for the past couple months, and it’s fantastic for what it is. Gaming desktop died a while ago, and with the economic uncertainty I decided to hold off on getting another one just yet. Instead I’ve been playing on a $200 Chromebook, often from my couch in the living room. Framerates and Read more

So out of that entire deluge of verbal diarrhea the short answer is no, you don’t have any examples of municipal projects that had the stated goal of “deliberately cause congestion”. You’re also a cyclist who hates: bike lanes, protected bike lanes, separate bicycle bridges, counter-flow bike lanes, etc. Did I miss Read more

Where is this “forced” bullshit you keep talking about? This is about *options*. It’s about building pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure so that you have *options* to walk or ride places. It’s about building denser infrastructure so you have the *option* to walk to do grocery shopping or go to bars and restaurants. Read more

Lol, it’s not “deliberately” causing congestion by putting bike lanes on arterial streets, it’s acknowledging that bikes belong on arterial streets for the same reason cars do: it’s because it gets them where they want to go. You’re just pissed because you might be slightly inconvenienced just so that some cyclist Read more

Actually, most states allow it, although in a few big ones like Florida and Texas it’s still illegal. California has a separate statute that governs it (ie, much lower fine and you don’t lose your driver’s license). Here’s the full list: https://bicycleuniverse.com/dui-on-a-bike/
