I don't know about that. He's slowly warming up to the electric car. He reviewed one recently and he didn't hate it.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Lucky you. I guess you weren't affected by the GPU failures in that line of laptops. Overheating is pretty common.
Mulder just can't jump to conclusions the way he used to.
No, but he can be much more cynical. That could be amusing.
Correction: They regulate the minimum temperature for rentals. The landlord has to provide a heating system that can heat to a minimum temperature for the winter, typically 20-21 C.
I have rented several units, I've never seen a unit where there was no temperature control. One of my friends, however, liked to rent basement suites, and they often had no separate heat controls. The thermostat would be in the upstairs part of the house.
Seat-belts and airbags also occasionally kill people, but they save ten lives for every one they take, and people accept the tradeoff.
Unless you or your family has been affected, then you tend to think a little differently. I've had the misfortune of having ABS fail thinking I was in a skid, so during a low speed stop I almost rearended the car in front of me. I did have the reflexes and quick thinking to go to the shoulder to miss an accident. However, as a result, I don't completely trust the ABS on any car now.
I for one am eagerly looking forward to autonomous cars purely because of the minor few that make the roads dangerous for everyone else.
I'm eagerly awaiting a time where people stop being so focused on getting cars around and start focusing on moving people around. I think the amount of infrastructure required to have millions of cars moving around is a waste, there must be other ways. And no, I'm not suggesting that trains are a solution. But there must be better ways that nobody has bothered to think up yet.
I find it interesting that now that some areas are passing laws that this type of functionality should be standard the manufacturers are doing something about it. I kind of wonder if these laws wouldn't be tabled if any of them would have even bothered.
As such, you can bet that any model that hits the road is going to be DAMN safe.
I don't know about that. We still get safety recalls today that involve airbags deploying after a bump, cars shutting off while driving, cars accelerating out of control... these three examples are different manufacturers.
My answer would be to just leave the damn devices at home.
Another thumbs up for Anker - I bought a battery for my S3. I was having issues with light to moderate use with my OEM battery and replaced it and I got two days of light use out of it. For me, that was better than the OEM battery I replaced.
Maybe he works for Nvidia and that's how this mess got started?
No kidding. I'm surprised there aren't foot pedals to access the extra mode keys.
And you can forget about converting my iphone using wife. She's laughing her ass off.
Apple has done this too and will probably happen to her if she has the phone for a while. I still remember a major iOS update making my old 3G slow & unusable and breaking bluetooth.
Lucky you, mine times out all the time and thinks it's not connected to the internet. Then voila, 25 seconds later it seems to have connectivity.
It helps if you do an "emerge --sync" first!
