Considering the benefits, bring on the laws that mandate that each stop light wifi/bluetooth/whatever broadcasts its state .

Good luck with that. Most stoplights are still using incandescent bulbs and run simply on timers that don't take the actual amount of traffic at the intersection at the time of day into account.

Based on some of the light were I live I am pretty sure some of them are using a random number generator rather than timer to decide how goes next and for how long.

it is more than just removing decals though it is more like they welded shut the ignition and broke the key off in the door locks and then say not our problem because we removed the decals before we broke it

what they did not only is refusing to fix some one else’s product but they broke some one else property for because third party made a knockoff. attack the producer sure but that does not give you the right to break other peoples shit maliciously

car anlology time.

Its like you taking you car into a dealer them finding you got a oil change at a non-dealer mechanic so they brick engine control chips on your cars on board computer and saying its you problem you can fix it you just need to overhaul then engine to get at it and re flash the firmware and it will work fine. So its not broken even though it won't start and requires special equipment and non trivial time money and knowledge to fix.

for all intents and purposes it is broken and they are responsible for breaking it

Just deport them to the USA. Dearborn, MI is the largest concentration of Muslims in the world outside of the middle east.

Actually Indonesia is the largest.

Islam is the dominant religion in Indonesia, which also has a larger Muslim population than any other country in the world, with approximately 202.9 million identified as Muslim (88.2% of Indonesia's total population of 237 million)

Where Dearborn is only 40% of Arabic decent many of whom are Lebanese Christians called Maronites, and Armenian Christian immigrants also a large part of Dearborn Arabic population.

The city's population includes 40,000 Arab Americans... In the 2010 census, Arab Americans comprised 40% of Dearborn's population; many have been in the city for several generations...
The first Arab immigrants came in the early-to-mid-20th century to work in the automotive industry and were chiefly Lebanese Christians (Maronites). Other immigrants from the Mideast in the early twentieth century included a large Armenian-American community, who are Christian. Assyrians/Chaldeans/Syriacs have also immigrated to the area. Since then, Arab immigrants from Yemen, Iraq and the Palestinian territories, most of whom are Muslim, have joined them. Lebanese Americans are still the most numerous group. (they are the Christian ones just saying)

I think you have been watching to much Fox News and thats coming from an admitted conservative.

Compare and contrast the First Commandment with the First Amendment.

Not to incompatible really the first commandment is aimed at the believer him/herself for their personal exercise not to be inflected on others. The first amendment is aimed at government and society so that we will tolerate each others existence. In fact all of the ten commandment are aimed at the believer and limit their actions. The only one of the ten commandments that says anything about what others may or may no do is the one about the Sabbath which read;

"Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy."
— Exodus 20:8-11

Which while relating to others just says they shouldn't work for you the believer on the believers holy day or sabbath.

I spent $1,200 on my Black MacBook and got eight years of use ($150 per year). Prior to that, I spent $1,200 on a Dell laptop that gave me three years of use ($400 per year). Do the math.

Yeah and I have had a Toshiba laptop last 5 years at 400. Thats 80 bucks a year. Both of our accounts a merely anecdotal though.

Wonder how much the dealer franchises had to pay in bribes for a unanimous vote. Seems a bit overkill when you only need a majority.

They didn't have to Michigan is the home of Detroit the "Motor City". Any one voting against it would have been shooting themselves in the foot come time for election funding.

+ - ChromeOS will no longer support ext2/3/4 on external drives/SD cards

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Chrome OS is based on the Linux kernel and designed by Google to work with web applications and installed applications. Chromebook is one of the selling laptopn on Amazon. However, devs decided to drop support for ext2/3/4 on external drivers and SD card. It seems that ChromiumOS developers can't implement a script or feature to relabel EXT volumes in the left nav that is insertable and has RW privileges using Given that this is the main filesystem in Linux, and is thereby automatically well supported by anything that leverages Linux, this choice makes absolutely no sense. Google may want to drop support for external storage and push the cloud storage on everyone. Overall Linux users and community members are not happy at all."

Pause for storage relocation.
