Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
You mean that Windows 10 wasn't intended to be patently evil, it's just that Microsoft are idiots?
a lot of people here on slashdot are very interested in what Tesla is doing.
A lot of people here on slashdot are interested in sex, too. That doesn't mean this is the place to discuss it.
Only a complete fucking moron would think that this mass immigration is anything but a future crime and terrorist attack in the making.
Yep, mass immigration - that's what America is founded on. And look how it turned out.
Selling cars that cost as much as a small house
They're a California company. Try finding a house for $132K just about *anywhere* in California, let alone greater LA or SF. Heck, finding a house in many parts of Silicon Valley for $1.32 million is tough.
Why is this a story on slashdot anyway? Jalopnik, sure.... but this isn't news for nerds, and not really even news that matters. It's just a new model press release.
Chromecast all but requires another smart device running (continuously) to control it. You can't control it directly.
The Amazon Fire Stick is pretty much identical to the Chromecast (but nicer), and comes with a remote control. For the intended market, the Amazon product is far superior.
The Chromecast works perfectly well with some apps (e.g. Netflix), but stutters badly on others (e.g. Hulu). I wonder how much of this is a questionable WiFi connection, and how much of it is poor software buffering design? My bet is that a hardwired connection will make Hulu performance better, but not perfect.
