Comment Re:Cyclists DON'T obey the law! (Score 5, Insightful) 696

I did recently count, on my 10 mile pre-dawn bicycle commute to work, how many motorists I noticed violating traffic law:
From the helmet-cam video I counted: 11 motorists driving pre-dawn without lights, 8 motorists failing to signal lane changes, 4 motorists failing to signal left turns, 4 motorists failed to come to a complete stop at stop signs, 3 motorists running red lights, I'm guessing at least 8 motorists significantly exceeding the posted speed limit, and two who exceeded the limit where electronic signs were showing them their speed.
And that's just one Wednesday morning, on some of the least busy streets in my town.
When are motorists going to start obeying the rules of the road?

Comment Tubular in 1984? (Score 1) 607

1. iOS7: Multitasking? It's about time. What is this, 1984?

2. Mac Pro Desktop: All of that tubular elegance is going lost in a rats-nest of external boxes and cables because all of the expansion of that chassis has to be external--there's no internal room for optical drives, RAID arrays, media card readers/writers, etc. And SSDs big enough for media production are still way too expensive. And how do you rack mount a dozen of them in the machine room of a video editing suite (as I've done many times in my business)?

You've been Berkeley'ed!
