Comment Reverse car analogy (Score 1) 618

Fiddling with graphic card drivers so they perform better on benchmarks is a way of life in the computer industry. No sane person would believe that only Nvidia ever does it. One would suspect that all the manufacturers do it (when they think they can get away with it)
I really would be amazed to find that only VW was using special code to pass the emissions tests. I have zero evidence to back up this wild accusation, but I do note that almost nobody ever gets the same mileage as the EPA tests.

We just passed a law basically saying "keep right, except to pass". Judging by comments on news articles about the law, this concept is utterly incomprehensible for a large number of drivers. Any number of folks seemed to think that as long as they were doing the speed limit, this rule didn't apply to them, and that it was ok to stay in the left lane all day.
