I've heard similar. Likewise there won't be much to be made on EV charge points. But they will be more likely to sell food whilst an EV is being charged.

Go the other way: Denny's should invest immediately in charging tech and work out their marketing strategy: Free quick charge with the purchase of two entrees.

I was surprised to learn that MANY people actually use the Caps Lock key as shift.

It's not just PEBKACs that do that. One of the world's fastest typists does this. http://seanwrona.com/typing.ph... (look under the "Typing Tips" section).

because pardoning him would set a dangerous precedent, essentially declaring open season on any and all State secrets that anyone with access thought should be revealed

If one hundred million US citizens sign a petition that they believe the disclosures deserve the light of day, then revealing them isn't a dangerous precedent, it is progress.

It's nigh impossible to reign in government over reach from the bottom up.

Even though Clinton is wrong on this, you're fooling yourself if you think you can always get past your own immediate self interest to see how changes to the big picture come back around to affect you. I hate getting my car smogged. It's expensive, it's a pain, and it feels like my car couldn't possibly be doing that much damage. But I would hate going to back to the way it was when I was a kid, and my lungs would hurt on Summer afternoons from all the crap in the air.

Yeah but it is American, so there's hope for it given that one of they key reasons Concorde failed is American jealousy at the successful design and development of it meant they made life commercially impossible for it to exist.

The only important reason it failed is because it was incredibly impractical and expensive to operate. Yes it was a marvel and all that, but you couldn't make money off it.

They did make her life miserable up to the point she gets that money, if she ever does.

Miserable? Seriously? I get far more than 153 unsolicited calls a year so I just don't pick up long distance area codes I don't recognize. Getting a call once every two days doesn't make a normal person miserable.

Comment "pwnies" sound familiar... (Score 4, Informative) 104

"Pwnies" are probably PWN Plugs from Pwnie Express. The original models were basically Sheeva Plugs, a raspberry-pi esque computer inside a wall wart form factor.

It would be interesting to see if these guys received products or training from Pwnie Express, a well known infosec vendor.
