unfortunately these times are gone and won't come back. Consumer electronics carry too low a margin and there are too few potential customers willing to pay for quality but expensive(r) products for Sony to go back to their roots.

It took 10 years after the supreme-bastard Ancel Keys died to finally start telling the truth.
They still have to exonerate the saturated fats and start pointing some fingers at the poly-unsaturated ones, but it's a good development.
Although I smell sarcasm in your reply (mostly based on the use of "over-priced" wording), the classic joke http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A... is very appropriate.
He also chose a venomous snake as his running mate. More than a few were put off by that selection...
he's just Sloppy...
Especially since Harrison Ford praises the script. I wonder what his opinion was regarding the Indiana Jones IV script.
You can't do that with a laptop battery pack. It would mess up the gas gauge counter (which, depending on the pack's firmware, could or could be not a recoverable event) and also could damage the cell-sensing circuits (during the initial assembly, there is a precise order in which the cells are connected to the pcb).
Only 1S packs could be replaced this way, but these don't use the standard 18650 units and are not found in laptops.
Silly, the overhead administering it is very, very low. Much lower than the private retirement funds.
Are you really arguing against a system that helped old people live a little more decently? There is no denying that SS provided (and probably still does) a great social service.
If you're lucky, you will get old too and it's very likely you'll see it differently from now.
Sorry Bill, but this time you seem to be off mark. As a percentage of the federal budget, "Defense" is some 17.7%, to which I would add the DHS and NSA, for a grand total of about 20%. That's not spare change.
When compared to the efficient way the other two agencies that command a large portion of the US budget (Health and SS) are run, it's hard to justify spending so much money on an endeavor so wasteful.
In the end, the US military adventures in the last few decades have put the country in a tough place. Some of the actions have been unjust and for that the US is loathed by quite a few, some other created the impression of the US being the World Cop, therefore many expect it to act at a finger snap (e.g. in Syria and I still remember the debacle over *not* intervening in Rwanda). In the long run, this is a losing situation, no matter how many resources are thrown at it.
You have to run faster and faster just to stay in the same place... The only beneficiary is the MIC, at the expense of everybody else.
unless they would check the actual link, the price matching based on a lousy printout is unworkable. It's rather easy to photoshop the displayed price to an arbitrarily low value.
Bram Stoker being #1 in the 1910 decade, way ahead of someone like Mark Twain? In what universe?
The list is full of mediocrity floating at the top, while profound authors being ranked way lower (Calamity Jane > Chekhov for instance).
The complete failure of this ranking experiment just shows how true AI is still 20 years in the future (as it has been for the past 50 years)...
