Love the article but I honestly expected to see headphones on the list. I just recently looked them up in my state and to my surprise they had a whole article on common misconceptions on what is illegal while driving and headphones are completely legal.

The hacked passwords thing is from Ring who has a vested interest in making users feel like their video is secure. But if you actually had read the article about the 8 year old being terrorized, then you would know that the user had a unique 21 character passcode. So you can choose to believe the company that has a Read more

Te 19 GLI Autobahn is a bad comparison handling wise. It doesn’t have the active dampers. For those you had to get a 35th anniversary edition. Of course then you lose some tech and the leather seats. But for me that was an easy decision my 35th corners like it’s on rails in sport but comfort makes it a capable daily Read more

On the receiving side it’s not at all clear to me that new hardware would be required. Sure it will be for the new codec but for multiple streams that’s would ostensibly be on the broadcast side. I'm probably wrong but that was my initial impression.

I just finished Jedi Fallen Order and now desperately want a new Disney+ series based on that. I think the future of Star Wars is in Expansion of the universe outside of Lucas’ Skywalker narrative. Favreau should be focused on bringing this expansion while letting talented directors do the actual work of producing his Read more

You also forgot that we have the most expensive and inefficient health care care s of any developed nation. And that our defense spending is multiples more than any other nation, with arguably worse results. (I mention defense spending because a common complaint of deficit Hawks is that we spend too much money on Read more

Forget Favreau, well not really he can executive produce and write some, but what I really want is Taika Waititi Star Wars. The pacing , the deadpan humor, and the emotion he got into on 30 minute episode was amazing. Sure there was a setup for a new adventure but the fact that he wrapped a ~3.5 hour series in a bit Read more

I may be lighting myself on fire here but I’m gonna stand up for Disney, TFA and TLJ. Disney spent $4 billion dollars for a film franchise that hadn’t had a successful installment in nearly 30 years. Sure the prequels made money but by ano other measure they were a failure. And then they doubled down on their purchase Read more

I have 2 kids to take to school daily so this now replaces the F1 as my dream daily supercar. I also have a wife and she wouldn't understand, but hopefully she'd get over it with me only having to sleep in it for a few nights.

I would go GLI over the Accord Sport. Both have manuals and similar horsepower, but the GLI gets a limited slip differential and a better shifting manual. And even though the Accord is likely to be more reliable the 6year 72k mile warranty on the VW evens things out. I have 2 kids in my GLI and their crap in my GLI Read more

The Trump administration argument is on its face a dumb, overly simplistic argument. Of course the amount of fuel burned has a direct relationship to the amount of raw emissions. But, and this is a huge but, there are technologies already in existence that can mitigate emissions output. I mean every car has one from Read more

I actually liked the Top Gear America with Tanner, Rutt, and Adam, but only when they were doing dumb stuff with cars that weren’t built to do the dumb thing they were trying. In those parts they actually felt like they were friends trying to either prank or one-up each other. Anything with a new or even newish car Read more

Why are there no real electric crossovers? If the people want crossovers and the flat floor of one is ideal for electrification why not just crank out as many of them as you can. And no the Model X and upcoming Y don’t count at best they are bulbous sedans, with the X having fancy adjustable suspension to fake it, and Read more

For me its price, price, and looks. Not one decent all electric car is below $25k and I’m not going to have a $600 per month car payment and 0 equity just so I can go electric. In my perfect world there would be a $25k-30K electric Jetta replacement and a $25K-30K electric Tiguan replacement. Oh and it would be nice Read more

No, I accounted for that. Read the last paragraph of my comment again. In that paragraph I do say it is possible that the author is saying the payload energy (i.e. the energy released by the warhead) isn’t affected by distance. But as I said payload size is affected by the delivery vehicle which faces its own size and Read more

I was in the market for a new car so Carvana didn’t make sense on that front, but I was able to use Carvana’s “sell your car” price from their website to add $1500 to my trade in’s value over what the dealer offered.
