I didn't say let it run all the way down, though I can see why you think I implied that. I can't vouch for WinTel manufacturers but Apple doesn't keep the charge at 100% if it gets left plugged in. I've had excellent battery life on my two Macbook Pros I've had the last 8 years. I typically plugin in around 20% or so.

I have an early 2011 and upgrading to an SSD caused me to go from 3-4 hours to 6-8 hours reported after a full charge with the real useful life averaging about 5 hours with the load I put on it.
My first MBP was the first model in 2007 and I gave it to a friend 2 years ago. The battery held 2 hours until just last year when it finally gave up the ghost. I think it was a sony battery.
On my Macbook Pro I installed an SSD and upgraded to 16 gigs and battery life has improved significantly while running Fusion. I can get 4 hours off a full charge whereas it used to be two hours tops while running on VM with the stock hard drive and 8 gigs of ram.
One of the better ways to kill a battery is to keep it plugged in all the time. Take it off the charger once a week and let it run down.
Everybody should be depressed and angry but they are complacent. New chief executive, same ole shit. Corruption and lies.
You couldn't address any points could you? Did you know before photographs existed we have evidence of glaciers covering the northern US? Due to climate change glaciers advanced and retreated. Our current observations line up nicely with the Vostok ice core. You know that during the little ice age in Europe glaciers advanced and then retreated after it warmed? Tell me about the humidity and it making winters colder again.
I think we are at an inflection point. So it is your thesis that higher humidity has led to higher snow packs in the Colorado river basin and temperature has no effect on that? Why is the runoff just staring now? Go to http://lakepowell.water-data.c... and see that due to the cool spring runoff is just starting and the lake is 2-4 degrees cooler than it usually is this time of year. I suppose higher humidty caused the long winter in the North Eastern US this winter as well? It caused the unusually cool weather in the south? High humdity from global warming made it a cooler than normal winter?
Extinction comes from not being able to adapt to change, and we need to focus on that. We can't stop the change.
We aren't even nearly as warm as we've been in the past via the flora and fauna record and we've stalled for the past 6 years, actually cooled the last couple of years, which no models predicted. It's theory, not fact because there are holes that can't be explained in the theory. Societies have grown and collapsed due to climate change in the past so what we need to focus on is dealing with climate variation. Check out the snow pack in the Colorado Rockies right now, runoff hasn't even taken off yet due to cold and snow, it is just starting to build now, in late May. Arapahoe Basin ski area is still open with a 73" base. It stays open until early May through early June usually but might even make it to July 4th this year like it did in 2011 when the base was in the 90" range in May. So twice in four years the snow pack is well above median and average.
It is stuff like this that bums me out, not the fact that we are so young on this planet that we are surprised that climate isn't stable.
When does observation become spying?
You assume they are different? If I'm spying on you I'm observing you. Spying is just covert observation.
I do understand what it is. It is a right and a privilege. I have the freedom to use this site. I don't have a firewall blocking me. The gestapo will not take me in the night for using it. The black helicopters are coming for you.
It does seem that there are cultures out there that like that kind of rule.
The US is more capable but we have a long history of voting out that which we don't like. So is your day to day life really changing? Black helicopters. Black suited men at the hipster coffee shop checking you out?
