resist cracking?

look, do you know why there exists an entire product category of plastic connector protectors? BECAUSE EVERY SINGLE iphone 4/5/6 cable breaks at the stem in a year of normal use!

(seriously, apples cables are just as bad as any other, nokia used to make decent microusb cables but then they started ordering from the same places everyone else does and it's apple style copy shit)

actually with windows 10 you would need to start blocking them one by one and first block at hosts/dns resolve level and then ip..

because it tries, oh it tries so much. it has backup connections on backup connections to make it happen and it just needs one, really.

not to mention that they change when it gets updated.

the zdnet writer should be ashamed though. "various cloud hosts". if he can't tell which addresses to block to shut down telemetry then he shouldn't be fucking writing about not to be worried about the telemetry!

if you manage to find some voltage blown fuses sure but I guess those would be surge protectors.

a regular fuse would I guess work with brown outs to some extent.. (current gets higher as voltage goes down).

voltage dropping to half or about is a more common occurance in these parts of the somewhat developed but really not developed asia anyways...

you order something that expensive, get invitation to a launch event hinted that you might able to be see what you're signed up to buy(!) and maybe even test drive it(!) and then the launch event is fucked up.

cancelling the frigging order because of that is super fucked up though. musk suddenly is scared of bad reviews or what?

especially since eh, isn't the whole product late as fuck too?

dunno who the f buys something like this with no reviews and no test drive - and obviously cancelling orders based on bad rap is just a signal that he doesn't think he can meet the production quotas anyways in a timely fashion.
