Comment Re:So what should we do? (Score 1) 521

I can relate to that. The wipers on my Nissan work opposite to the way they did on my Saturn. So for quite awhile when I wanted to switch from low-speed to high, I turned them off instead, or when I tried to switch them off, I'd switch them to high. Also, though the radio worked the same, it was positioned just different enough that I had to look at it instead of doing it by touch.

Luckily, the important parts of every car I've driven in were the same.

Now that is pure bullshit! Here in the real world we like so called _facts_ which, incidentally, show that you are completely wrong. People _should_ logically drive slower in those situations but they don't - and modern features like airbags + misc. break assist features makes some people think they can drive however they want.

IME, people DO slow down on icy roads. However, my experience might not be accurate, since I'm looking at the cars that are still on the road, not the ones that are on the 6PM news when they're talking about all the accidents.

IME, Win10 is the least stable Windows since the DOS based versions. On my desktop, it borked my internet, though that was actually a good thing, since it gave me an excuse to switch to Ubuntu. On my laptop, the video driver keeps hiccuping, and if I close the lip without manually putting it into sleep, I get a f**dup screen and have to reboot.

Comment Re:Do smartphones actually break? (Score 1) 220

My phone is one of the few devices that actually have broken. Mainly because I carry it everywhere, and it eventually falls out of my pocket, and sooner or later, one of those falls does some damage.

OTOH, I don't think I've had a laptop break since the turn of the century, and I've NEVER had a desktop or tablet break. They might become "obsolete", but they don't break.
