Aside from the fact you are an idiot (hopefully a paid astroturfer), the one reference you provide is stuck in 2009 (that's a few years ago). Also, you reference disagrees with you: "Based on data from 2009 the US petrol emissions equivalence is 40 MPGUS (9 L/100 km), similar to a modern petrol hybrid. But at the speed US electricity is decarbonizing this figure is rising quickly."

Nobody can change your mind, that's fine, reading the blatherings of an anti EV loon made me smile today. :)

Steam has made buying games convenient and affordable, I don't even think about pirating a game anymore. Today I work along the lines of "if it's not on Steam I'm not going to bother buying / playing it". A reduction in piracy simply because a market started doing what the consumer wanted, you reading this music industry guys?

Well, no.

Name one (affordable) video service that:
1) Let's me pre-download the full quality video in it's entirety.
2) Provides it in a format usable on almost any device.
3) Allows me to copy to another device.
4) Has every movie I want, not just select titles from specific studios.
5) Doesn't treat me like I'm a criminal.

If someone can give me that, my money is theirs. For now Netflix is still sadly the best legal service.

....unplug internet because afraid... Adblock does its job and does it well, I don't see ads. Do I care if they sell some info about my browsing, no. We've left the age where NoScript is relevant, I don't want to have to allow every other website I visit just because I'm paranoid.

I agree with the AC, your post looks like a short sighted (idiot) or troll comment to me. The 33,561 people in the U.S. that died in 2012 from an automobile related incident and their families would probably be pro self-driving car.

We can discuss (argue about) the various merits of self-driving cars all day long but I'll make it simple: I trust a computer to do complex repetitive math all day long and not make a mistake where I would expect multiple screw ups from a human. Take that same concept and apply it to a car. Will there be issues still, yes... just a whole lot less.

While they may have been the "de facto" device in 2011, it looks like they were overrun by all the various Android tables a while ago and are still in market share decline. For a single device compared against all others they may have the most share, but not by OS. With Apple just catching up to Samsung’s 2012 products this trend will probably continue.

I am more bored than you could ever possibly be. Go back to work.

Working...
