Yes, there will always be some cases that might be a shame, but in most cases it's a great tool..
Personally I really don't believe the story of the system switching off the engine while driving.
But 3 days late on a payment is a bit soon IMHO for such a measure. But then again, it IS in the contract the person signed with the company..
And well, car not starting when she needed to go to the emergency room, what would she have done if it wasn't the system, but a real malfunction.. And wouldn't it have been cheaper to just call a cab if it really was an emergency (or an ambulance)..
Ofcourse people to which something like this happens always have a story.. Just pay the damn loan, you're in exactly the same position as when you wouldn't have a car at all..
So I don't have any sympathy for people like this, they knew what would happen if they didn't pay on time (but as I said, I think 3 days is a bit too soon, IMHO it should give a warning (from the first day) that within a week the car won't start if payment hasn't been received)..

But I don't want a small 9" tablet, I want at least 10" or an 11" Nexus tablet. with small bezels (at least as small as my current Xoom Wifi)..

At the moment there isn't a great 10" tablet which is just as simple looking but rugged quality. I would like the back to be of the same rubbery kind as the nexus 5, that has a soft feel, and even with a bit of sweaty palms still stays in your hands.. And no hardware buttons other than on/off switch on the back (like the xoom) and a volume control..

Telling other countries they cannot have nuclear weapons, but keep on building themselves.. what a bunch of f-ing hypocrits....

I don't like North korea or Iran having nuclear weapons, but if the US has them and keeps on making them, then I won't blame those countries for trying to create some themselves..

If the US is really serious about other countries not having nuclear weapons, then they should stop making them themselves and ditch the ones they have.. otherwise it's just a bunch of crap..

I own a DK2, but even if it's superior to anything else that was/is on the market for under $1000, it still needs a lot of work. Having seen the new prototype, it sure looks ugly like hell, also the headphones really look like the crap you get on a plane.. Compare that to the full headset you got on the forte VFX-1 (which IMHO is still one of the most comfortable HMD's ever, especially with it's flipup visor).. Also with the DK2 there really isn't any good calibration, which it certainly needs to try and get rid of motion sickness, as a wrong IPD can induce it.. Most headsets I've used had much better adjustments as the DK2 (you could adjust left right eye independantly on the X, Y and Z axe).. But one thing as a DK2 owner is ofcourse their unveiling of the new prototype so soon after the release of the DK2.. But I don't think there will be a DK3 before the release of the CV1, well at least not until a few weeks before the release of CV1, because if they are going to release DK3 this year, I'll be very pissed..

This is a good example why drones should be banned.. Now it's trying to get some eyes on filming of a big budget movie, but drones can (and are) also be used to peeping tom..
Whenever I see a drone over my property, it'll receive a nice buckshot.. Oh sorry I've mistaken it for my claypigeon..
Drones are nothing more than an RC airplane, and where I live you cannot fly those over populated area's, only on special assigned area's (mostly farmland)..
Because people can fly a simple drone with a camera now, doesn't mean people should be allowed to..
