Editor's note: I just got back from a busy weekend to see that a bunch of people are freaking out that we're "burying" this story, so here it is. Go hog wild. Sorry it took so long.

You said "sorry it took so long" but your excuse in the article doesn't match what you just said down here. It's long on bogosity.

Comment Re:Hybrid != EV (Score 1) 622

Grouping Hybrids and EVs together is just dumb. They aren't the same "type" of car. (and in my book, the Volt is a Hybrid).

I've been driving a LEAF for a year and I hope to never go back to a car with an ICE. Free fuel (solar and charging at work) beats cheap gas every time.

We're really considering replacing our 10 year old minivan with a Model S at this point. The space inside that car is incredible.

Comment Re:Flash was NOT cool in the begining (Score 3, Insightful) 188

Scalar vector graphics and sound are cool, but Flash was not wonderful technology. Adobe was not to blame; they just bought the existing monster.

Flash was foremost a huge CPU waster. And an easy to use vector for all sorts of security exploits (because the original code from Macromedia was an abomination).

And don't forget, Flash was so important you shouldn't even be able to uninstall it.

Comment Macromedia was evil first (Score 1) 188

Bitching about Adobe only accounts for the last 10 years of Flash vulnerabilities. But, don't forget Flash was created by Macromedia, which was far more evil than Adobe. Macromedia used to not have an uninstaller for Flash, because they didn't want you to be able to uninstall it!

(this is where my reply meant to go, but I screwed it up and added it as a separate comment below)
