In other news: You can charge a Nissan Leaf with a phone charger....
Perjury is a crime. Were the appropriate penalties applied?
you know what pairs well with drones? shotguns.
I don't think an Amazon 'copter could lift a shotgun...
Surely Commodore was first with its floppy disks/printers.
Rubbish. Laptops had trackballs in front of the keyboards long before Apple added a touchpad to their powerbooks.
The only people who can migrate are the people who only do Facebook/Youtube.
Reason: People who do any kind of job/work need a screen bigger than 10".
The PC market will stabilize again once those people are out of the way.
In Asia, they are teaching kids Science.
In America, we are teaching them that as long as almost all the experts agree, the science doesn't matter.
Worse, they're teaching them their personal feelings and opinions are as good as any amount of reproducible experiments and data.
Why bother? My bike works fine without an electric wheel.
Not everybody sees cycling as a macho endurance event.
Some people have to wear suits to work, not spandex.
Hipsters are, by definition, ignorant of fashion trends.
The first selling point given in the video is, "You can always dress for the destination, not the ride, and never worry about sweating". (at1:50 in the video)
Game. Set. Match.
From the video it appears the first version will only work if you live in a wooden-floored loft and have to carry your bicycle up the stairs.
Maybe that's how they charge the battery.
Don't forget Windows 8. That must have made a lot of people hold on to their old PCs.
I thought snow was like gravel, in that you will stop faster by locking up the wheels and piling up some snow in front of them, rather than trying to stop the wheels from locking up?
At low speeds, sure.
At higher speeds (30mph or more) you're looking at spinning the car and complete loss of control.
That is incorrect. There was never a reason to ban an aid that allows a vehicle to go faster, it is racing after all
Nope. A lot of it is to slow the cars down because they were dangerously fast.
(Especially in Rally driving where whole groups of cars were eliminated in the 1990s purely for safety reasons).
In Formula 1 there's been a lot of recent changes to reduce the cost of competing, otherwise the team with the most money would always win. eg. Rich teams used to use up an engine in three laps of qualifying just to try and get pole position. Now they're limited to a few engines per season.
In a high-end sports car you should definitely be able to turn it off at least.
However did people manage to drive cars before it was invented?
It seems impossible, almost like the superhuman ability needed to drive a stick-shift (I used to know a fighter pilot who couldn't drive stick...)
I think 5% is massively optimistic.
