Comment European coffee (Score 1) 212

Sadly, you started exporting the same coffee back to us and now they put cup holders in our cars too. Sadly, you started exporting the same coffee back to us and now they put cup holders in our cars too.

So you're really saying that your coffee actually sucked worse than ours and that you couldn't get a date. Got it.

The idea of having a "regular schedule" of releases is stupid. What if you didn't have any compelling features to add? You are just going to do a release because that is what the release schedule says? Here is a hint guys: writing software is not supposed to be just to keep you busy. It is supposed to deliver a product that is useful.

Not really. You are "looking", but you don't have to move the eye to look. In fact there doesn't need to be "letters" at all. You are just "looking at" light/dark patterns and measuring the pupil response. No thinking required, which makes it perfect for people like me who don't like to think.

This is perfect. We now don't even need to move our arms to watch netflix. The peak of civilization has now been achieved.

Oh, by the way, this type of system has already been deployed for paraplegics for many years. And no, you aren't "literally thinking" about letters, you are "looking" at letters. Learn what "literally" means.

Um, no. I'll hate on the people making the calls too. Sprint Telemarkers are legal, so it isn't a problem. They don't call me. The ones that call me when I am on the do not call list are not legal. They are doing illegal things, and they know it, and they don't care. Sociopathic. There are plenty of ways to make money without doing illegal things.

Comment Cup holders (Score 1) 212

That is why for a VERY long time there were no cup holders in the car. You shouldn't be drinking your coffee - you should be *driving*.

That wasn't a Porsche thing. That was a German thing. I owned several VWs which were decidedly NOT "drivers cars" which didn't have cup holders either. Hell I owned an '85 Sirocco which was sporty but utterly lacked cup holders.

And in my opinion it's MY freakin' car and if I want to drive it and drink coffee then Porsche can take their opinion and shove it.
