"They want a healthy, open platform with lots of innovation. "

Then why do they allow cellphone carriers to bake in their crap to the point that you cant delete it. Fricking AT&T installs so much damn crap on the HTC ONE M8 that is baked into the rom that it's disgusting, coupled with the craptastic HTC Sense that is also forced upon you and you have a Worse experience for the end user.

I have backed well over 30 kick-starters and every single one delivered.

The trick is having a brain when you fund one. Almost every one of the failed kick-starters had a LOT of red flags in the beginning.

Yes this means you need to be educated and smart to be successful in Kick-starter backing.. Just like everything else in the world. The problem is there are a lot of noisy idiots that think that kick-starter is like ebay and they whine loudly.

The stock market is 100% identical to Kick-starter. if you invest like an idiot you will lose everything.

we have a winner! call me when this "glass" can last 2 winters in northern Michigan, Wisconsin, or Minnesota. The idea is flawed as all hell in regards to durability.

Then you have adhesion, until they prove that this glass has the same adhesion dry and wet as asphalt or cement it's a major fail. even highly textured glass is slippery compared to a smooth cement.

Lastly there are a TON of other factors that make the whole idea a failure that should not be funded.

"if we won't do something about these ISIS people, they will not stop until they reach the borders of the western world, and by then it will be too late. "

Only if dipshits vote for and pass laws disarming the american citizens.

You want to know why Japan never tried an attack on the US mainland? They knew the citizens outgunned their army 40 to 1.

Actually technically he is right if we kill them all very fast.

nuke 80% of the middle east, full on carpet bomb every square mile with overlapping bursts and you will not have 2 more spring up. you will actually wipe them all out for good and not have any problems with middle eastern terrorisim.

The problem is surviving the 60 year nuclear winter afterwards.

"But thus far, the logitech harmony series is the only thing I've found that actually gets that job done at all and therefore is the best by default."

Try the real stuff. Control 4, Crestron and AMX all blow the harmony remote out of the water so badly it is not funny. Hell even the URC programmable remotes make a harmony look like a joke.
