You do realize that Tomato does much the same thing as *WRT? In some cases, for some people, Tomato might be a better choice, depending on what they are trying to do. But, yes, I agree with you. Why buy any box, mini or otherwise, if you can't control it?
So why do Apple's trackpads work and Dell's don't?
And Apple stuff basically works. Like the trackpad. Come on world, is Apple the only company that can make a really good trackpad? You'd think so. I'm typing on a 5 year old MacBook Pro 17" with a great trackpad and bulletproof construction. It's been over much of country, part of the planet and the only thing that's gone south is the video, which Apple fixed for free - out of the warranty period.
Yes, in a lot of ways it's a bog standard Intel box, but some of the smooth edges (and not just the rounded corners) and good system integration just really hasn't been duplicated by anybody else. My 2014 Dell XPS 13 is a nice machine, but Windows is still clunkier than OS X and the fucking trackpad is a POS. The keyboard is only a bit better. Why can't Dell fix those two rather important little bits? Beats me, but they haven't.
It's okay, because "nobody died in this nuclear accident".
In the case of the UCC shooter I do not believe so. I believe it is far more likely that autistic mom and autistic son shared an autistic obsession about guns. Autistic son had headbanging stim. Autistic Mom who was studying to be a nurse went crazy with the perscription meds to control the headbanging. One day, kid loses control, takes 6 guns out of the collection of more than 20, goes and shoots up the nearest gun-free zone he knows about, which happens to be the college he's enrolled in.
Seems very straightforward to me.
Your article failed to address side effects from antidepressant medication, which is the *specific* co-morbidity. Yes, general mental illness does not necessarily create violence, but it is specifically listed in the potential side effects of drugs like Zoloft and Lithium.
Suicide is also a danger with these drugs (which makes me think anti-depressants are rather, well, misnamed).
Suicide by cop even more so. And for that you need, gasp, potential or real random victims.
And then if the car companies use geo-location information, driver facial recognition or some other tomfoolery to adjust the engines when they are detected to be in a 'test' area, would you still blame the test? At some point you have to say 'attempting to rig this vehicle for the test is cheating, and you'll be penalized harshly when caught' or you'll be playing whack-a-mole endlessly.

Iodine Tablets that protect the thyroid form radiation?
They knew this in the 50's why aren't the children receiving this now as a precaution? Or is it now considered unsafe?
They thought about it.
Dr. Yamashita, former Director of Fukushima Health Mangagement Suryey and a leading figure of thyroid cancer study in the world, has been actively involved in thyroid cancer research in Chernobyl for over 20 years since 1991. Dr. Yamashita was a radiation risk advisor for Fukushima prefecture at the time of the nuclear accident. Despite his experiences in Chernobyl, he assured that distributing iodine tablets to residents in Fukushima, even in the evacuation zones, was unnecessary. However, the distribution of iodine tablets had been discussed within Fukushima Medical University (FMU), especially during the first 1 week after the accident.
But because no permission was given by the national government and the prefecture, the plan was never carried out. .
Surprisingly, there was a group of people who took the iodine tablets under the circumstances. They were doctors, nurses, administrative stuff and their children/relatives, and the students of Fukushima Medical University.
Are the usual pro-nuke ppl. here going to trumpet the same old "no injuries from Fukushima" line, over and over again?
Probably, but nobody except other wackjobs believes them. The more interesting but infinitely harder to address question is whether or not nuclear power, with all it's warts (Chernobyl, Hanford, Fukishima, bog-knows-what-all-is-left-in-Russia) is more or less dangerous than fossil fuels in general.
My best guess is that it's considerably safer since the data on coal looks pretty bad.
The only real problem for nuclear is that it's too damned expensive compared to fossil fuels and now even solar and wind. It's a horribly complex technology that it's adherents fucked up badly by not carefully and consistently holding to the highest of engineering standards (like naval reactors). They cheaped out and they are paying the price.
