It's not a bug, it's a feature!
I think it's because when you use it like "...a scissors to cut..." it is implied that you are saying "... a [pair of] scissors to cut..."
It'd be funny if people did this with pants though.
Hold on, let me go put on a pants!
Ok ok, you can stop proving JavaBear's point already!
Now do that for a car that actually competes with the Model S.
The Audi A7 (base $64,500), the BMW 6 series (base $75,400), and the Mercedes-Benz CLS (base $72,100). Note base prices are pulled from Google's first result.
I would compare a Nissan Leaf to say... a Honda Fit or a Fiesta hatch likewise (or a Nissan Versa!).
Don't know why the GP decided comparing to a 30k car made any sense at all... he started a discussion that makes 0 sense.
You know there are physical controls for the radio right on the steering wheel, right?
And the climate control is full auto, you shouldn't even need to mess with anything on it, just the temperature setpoint (my car has a similar auto climate control, I leave the thermostat on 72 and haven't messed with anything else in a long time).
Interesting, but does it actually support the D2 comment system (heresy, I know)? I've tried setting it a couple times and it always returns to the classic system whenever I save. I do like to be able to uncollapse comments inline to see what context I missed from a high-rated reply.
You can already get a SLAM enabled vacuum robot.
I've had a Neato for 3 years and it makes Roomba look like a toy.
Um it said in the title that Dell is now a privet company
And Michael Dell is... A SHRUBBERY!
It's amazing just how different things are even 10 minutes across the Ohio River.
ATVs and snowmobiles have handlebars that turn through maybe 45 degrees in each direction. A wire up the column suffices to carry electricity up to the wheel for the heat.
Those products that you so snarkily linked through lmgtfy are made to physically plug in when you start the car, then physically unplug again when you want to drive. Hardly very practical IMO.
You need extra space on the clock spring that carries signals from wheel mounted buttons because the wheel in a car goes all the way around, usually around 1.5 times in each direction, meaning 3 rotations. And that clock spring space has to be built more beefily because you're carrying real current, not just a couple mA, and you'll need two because you need a solid ground. Not something that you can just slap on and plug into the cigarette lighter.

Well 1970 seemed pretty near a local minimum. It's not quite that bleak if you look at the historical average.
I don't think it'll ever be going down again, and not due to inflation/weakened buying power of the dollar. We haven't hit peak oil yet, but the rise of demand in the east is far outstripping the rise in supply.
Technically correct is the best kind of correct.
How's that new Slashdot beta coming, Dice?
