Here you go, but pretty sure it's not an EV.
But they've taken it further - rather than just bash out a cheap PC-clone console, they are redesigning controllers, reprogramming their games around them, looking into the new VR trend
That's called "innovative". Proprietary systems try their best to keep you from innovating by locking you out and selling you a 'black box'. This way, they are the only innovators and you stay the customer paying yearly maintenance contracts. Good for Valve.
Perhaps it's due to the smaller components or faster spindles creating more heat, but I rarely get a few years of service out of a single SATA drive before smartctl starts showing problems or a raid array tossing a drive. Seagate and OCZ have always been awesome about replacing the drive under warranty but still. Seems like those 400 meg IDE drives of yesteryear lasted decades before making any clicks-of-death.

Knowingly trying to bring down web sites is a crime.
The problem is the US is developing a legal system based on double standards. The rules only seem to apply to low and middle class while financial magnates, corporations, political entities and the cops themselves are not having to answer for their own with literal murder, crime and mayhem. What's more is you have a political system making laws which is connected to a corporate money funnel which is connected to the senate, there is no way a "crime is a crime" anymore. It's all biased for the highest bidder.
When you request a plastic bag, it's clean and it's fate is clean
That's strange because the fate of those plastic bags that I see is usually groups of them wind blown against fencing, or laying in snow banks.
Blaming the pollution problem solely on "emerging" countries is akin to giving permission to be excluded from contributing to the problem. Yes, we have EPA regulations however US companies only adhere to them when:
A) Being out of compliance costs more than playing by the rules
B) When there is enough certainty they will be caught
You can thank the "jackass hipsters" for the air you're breathing now. Back in the '70s, it was they who pushed and pushed for pollution regulation. If they hadn't, the US would still be dumping waste in the Great Lakes and tributaries and you would most likely be breathing the same smog the "emerging" countries are now. Nobody in those countries would dare protest like the hippies did in the US.
Sounds like one of the help-desk guys brought him a tablet to try out this week.
then the trackpad, then the clean designs etc etc...
.. then the addition of indiscernible hieroglyphics. "No mom, the thing that looks like a crooked T... next to the clover.... thing.. " That's one cue I'm glad as hell never got released into the PC space. For all of Apple's touted wisdom, they do some equally idiotic things sometimes just to "be different".
I find it creepy that law enforcement has a means to disable just about every system society needs in order to communicate, defend itself, or gtfo.
Healthcare.gov recently only works so much better because they scrapped the requirement
Uh.. that's not quite accurate. The changes made*, so far, were the typical things you would expect of an ill performing system; Glitches in code, not enough testing, scalability issues and much more. All things which people on 6 digit salaries or contracted consultants (Oracle) don't need to have spelled out to them. If there was a spec, it was the least of the problems. Much of what the ACA suffered from was just plain negligence. Almost to the point of being sabotage.
That Porsche may have 600 hp, but in the hand of an excellent driver, it would be still a very safe car.
While I generally agree with the theme of your statement, 600 horse is not exactly what I'd call safe for the street. Coupled with the lack of stability control and unconventional handling characteristics, a car like this has no business anywhere but on the track or in a showroom. I venture a guess any professional driver will tell you the same thing. Besides, nobody adheres to the speed limit anyway; most people think it's a suggestion. I regularly see people 10-15 over the posted limit and from those pics of the walker crash, I'd say he was well over 60mph in the posted 45. Probably not the first time either.
As humans, I believe we have a responsibility to treat creatures with a humane stewardship but this lawsuit is pushing an agenda other than humane stewardship. This is the exact kind of thing which makes people roll their eyes every time a vegetarian speaks up about the living conditions of feed-lot beef, or the destruction of bottom trawling and bycatch.
FTFA: As is its custom, the court gave no explanation for turning down petitions from Amazon and Overstock.com
Explanation is, more money got put into the lobbying coffers of the side screaming "Yes!Yes! More glorious cash!"
