I'm amazed at how the safety cage is still there, pretty much undamaged, even if the car was split in half...

Looking at the pictures from TFA, looks like he would still be alive if not ejected from the car (if he could've gotten out before it caught fire)

No wonder NHTSA broke their machine while testing roof resistance

True, but you won't be using a Soundblaster either, and that's where the article is wrong.

There are way better cards at lower prices (Xonar, M-Audio)

Yes, a discrete card might have *better* specs (especially analog components, which was a problem on older integrated soundcards), but I haven't felt the need to use a discrete card since my nForce 2 board (Soundstorm).

Besides, it saves me from using Creative's bloatware.

It's not like they're making 60,000$/year, maybe not even 10,000/year

Like when my previous employer (largest Cableco in Quebec) went to Egypt for tech support (4,000/year, crappy support, low-end) customers whined and kept their expensive services even if their tech support went to hell...
