Perhaps the fines should be a percentage of the profits?
A Citation may not be a very good car, but it will get you to the farmer's market.
If a "sufficient quantity" of HFCS would "disturb" your body, wouldn't that make it exactly a poison? It's sort of like alcohol. Most people can drink a little alcohol without a single noticeable negative effect. But if you drink enough then you become, well, "intoxicated", disturbed by the toxin. I think it's fair to say that HFCS can be classified as a toxin.
By that logic, just about anything would be a toxin. Including water.
That's exactly what I saw happen. It was even more fun during the later part of the several-year transition period, when most of the lights had the all-red delay, but there were still some around that didn't. Hilarity ensued.
It's probably rated for the laptop running at 100% CPU, while charging the battery, screen at 100% brightness, extra hard drive in the Ultrabay, and a few devices hanging off the USB ports. I've connected my laptop up to a Kill-a-watt and found that most of the time it's well below the rating on the power adapter, and this is on the wall side too.
If that's the case, then why haven't those computers been upgraded already?
Actually, GM did go bankrupt. Part of the reorganization was that a new company was formed, the stuff they wanted to keep got transferred to the new company, and the old one which included stuff like Pontiac went bust and basically shut down. So kind of like AT&T, what we now know as GM is not the same GM from decades past. Though I agree that they aren't healthy, and seem to act like they'll be able to keep selling gas guzzling trucks and SUVs essentially forever.
A bug? In Windows? Unbelievable!
Dude, cutting the cord is mainstream now. Well, for those that had cable (or satellite) in the first place.
My guess is that we're only a few years away from only being able to get a clutch in "sporty" models, at least as the US goes.
Er, your math is a little off -- there was no Mustang fifty years ago. The Mustang came out in 1964, and its generation lasted until 1973.
The people who write Wikipedia kind of have an odd interpretation of that. Most people consider the 64-66 as the first generation, then there was the 67-68's, the 69-70's, and the 71-73's. Granted, they were all the same basic platform, but the 71-73's were quite a bit larger and over a 1,000 lbs heavier than the 64-66 Mustangs and in many ways a completely different car. Read all about it at...err... Wiki:
On another note I've always found it interesting that the current "retro" Mustang is actually modeled after the '69 more than anything else.
I don't know who that Adam Shaw guy is who wrote that article, but if Pope Francis is pissing him off then the Pope must be doing something right.
If you take into account live CD's, it's actually been possible for a long time. Just burn your OS to CD or DVD, put it into a computer that lacks a hard drive, and you've basically got a system that you can easily restore back to it's original, working state by just hitting the reset button. Though the several minute (typical) boot time from the optical media is a lot slower than a C64. You could probably speed that up by putting the OS onto some kind of write-protected flash memory, though you may have to be careful since a lot of the write-protect switches on things like SD cards are actually software-controlled and there's nothing to stop someone from making a program that ignores the switch and writes to the media anyway. I guess technically you'd have the same problem with an optical disk you burn in a drive that has burning capabilities.
From what I've seen, IE8 and IE9 were a decent attempt at a modern browser, even though they had their flaws. I'm not sure WTF Microsoft is up to with IE10 and IE11, but the level of brokenness is something I haven't seen since IE6.
I've used Opera since I gave up on Netscape 4. Yes, back when it was something I had to fork over real money to buy. I'm still on Opera 12.16, but the web experience is slowly degrading as it ages. Not sure where I'll go next. After using the same web browser for well over a decade switching to something else will take some time to get accustomed to. Between Winamp getting shut down and Opera essentially throwing in the towel and becoming a wrapper around Chromium, 2013 has not been a good year for some of my favorite software packages that I've been using for long time.
