That would be HID, not LED...
On the other hand, they should brake much less often than bulbs.
No, not really - integrated DAB is something which is usually an optional extra. Of course, this change is not really news, so you can probably say that those who bought a new car in the last 5 years without DAB or the possibility to easily install it, brought it upon themselves.
So it's the 10 year old cars which are the real problem. I have one of those myself - the radio is also the trip computer etc., and the climate controls use the same display. It works very nicely, but I have no idea how to install DAB without using one of those FM transmitters (= crappy quality, I do that to use Spottify). It's made by GM's German division, so I guess most of the electronics is the same as you would find in their US cars of similar date.
PS: DAB is not the same as XM/sirius! It works with terrestrial transmitters, just like FM.
I don't think they use the same frequency...
Rather the opposite - nice cars (or anything newer than 10-15 years) has integrated headunits, which is basically what kimvette says. On old/simple cars, the radio was just a radio, sitting in a DIN socket.
However, there are aftermarket solutions, some nicer than other. And of course, the nice solutions are krkrkrkrkrkrkrkrkrkrkrkrkrkr...
What the hell has happened to Slashdot?
It's been flooded by cowards moaning about conspiracy theories from the dark corners of a US conservative mind.
It's the "deny unlock from code" switch which requires two persons to push it. This is possibly the best idea I've heard so far, and infinitely more possible to implement than all the remote-control ideas.
Same applies when two pilots are in the cockpit - they are not all the same size/weight/strength.
Except for the loud banging of the door, which was actively locked from the outside, preventing the screaming crew and passengers access to the cockpit.
I'm sure the French will now finally pay up in order to listen to your glorious BBC.
Still, sometimes fixing things yourself *saves* you time and frustrations, as you can do it when you want, not having to coordinate with a technician.
If there suddenly is real industry, do you think the population will stay in the 50k range? I think an influx of Danes etc., large enough to significantly change the demographics, is likely. They might not vote the same way...
Maybe. However, it might also be that HP's engineers are better at designing the mechanics for good airflow - after all, I ran this computer very hard for months (htop was showing a load of more than 400%, continuously for several months), and it was dumping quite a lot of hot air, more than enough to noticeably heat a relatively large office.
As said by several others, BSODs are an error message from the kernel, which has died (detected that something is seriously wrong, and stopped itself before it overwrites the file system or something like that) - just like a "kernel panic" on Linux or OS X. And yes, they usually come from hardware problems (regardless of OS), sometimes from misconfiguration (again regardless of OS), and rarely from programming errors (regardless of OS).
What you're saying is that Microsoft code is trivial, since all non-trivial code has bugs, unhandled or poorly handled special cases etc.
Exactly - what he is seeing is caused by crappy cables forcing retransmits, not propagation delay. The signal speed in a cable is typically higher than 10% of the speed of light, so any extra delay is measured in nanoseconds.
Anyway, a more silent PC is possible. My old workstation, at work was a quite powerfull i7 (although with a moderate GPU), which often ran at full load for months on end. It was completely silent (being under the table also helped), to the point where an i3 iMac is now annoying me with how loud it is. It was an HP marketed towards the pro marked, and cost something like 1200 $ (without taxes, using my employers good deals) when I ordered it in 2012.
