The idea of having a dedicated TV seems archaic to me. Displays should be stupid, with the 'Smart' portion being separate so that it can be easily upgraded or swapped out. If my hard drive gets full but the computer works fine otherwise, I don't go buy a new computer... I just buy a bigger drive and add it into my existing computer. Why should media consumpution systems (AKA TV sets) be treated as an integrated box?
Of course, it's a giant conspiracy to keep reducing the gate width, and making fin-fet transisters, and changing to EUV (and trying to design high power lasers to feed these machines) because that's sooo much easier than changing to a non-capacitive transister. Google must be in on the conspiracy, since a search for "non-capacitive transistor" doesn't return any meaningful results.
Sorry, your post is wrong in so many ways, that I don't know where to start... Maybe this will help: https://xkcd.com/386/
Living with a disability sucks. Any project that increases awareness of how a disability can inhibit an otherwise coherent individual from doing everyday tasks (like buttoning a shirt), is worthwhile in my (not so uninvolved) opinion.
As for Rush mocking Michael J. Fox, Here's his response on NBC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v... As Michael states in the video, without medication he'd be frozen (Google 'Parkinson's Frozen' to see what he means by that... it's pretty freaking scary). While I lean more towards Republican viewpoints than Democrat, I find Rush's insinuations in this instance distasteful, ignorant, and hurtful.
Robin Williams committed suicide during early stages of Parkinson's, possibly due to the idea of living with this disability for the rest of his life. Not having an entire foundation at my disposal, when I get to his stage of Parkinson's, I obviously cannot expect to have as finely tuned medication dosing as Michael has.
My goal is to live my life as well as I can, as long as I can. That's all any of us can do.
Not that I personally have anything to worry about, as I always assume people are reading my emails. And being bored to tears by them.
There are a few sites that I care enough about (liliputing.com for example) to whitelist them. I don't click on their ads, but their advertising is subdued enough to avoid being obnoxious.
My main desktop PC has two mice from the MX-5500 keyboard/mouse set. These are the ultra-rare MX mice with bluetooth built in. They're so special that, while you can order the dongle or the keyboard as a repair part, the bluetooth mouse itself is not available as a repair part. Luckily, I was able to find a spare keyboard/mouse/dongle in mint condition at my local goodwill store. I have both mice on my desk, one in use and the other in the charging station. When the in-use mouse stops working, I swap the two mice. Honestly, I don't know why Logitech never figured out that selling a comfortable bluetooth mouse might be profitable... Check out the eBay listings for the MX-5500, it's crazy what people will pay for these!
I live in Phoenix Arizona. Any season but summer would be fine with me. A while back I bought a BBQ meat thermometer to measure the temperature of the seats in my car. The LCD on the meat thermometer couldn't handle the heat. In the early part of summer, the seats (where I put my delicate hiney) measured out at 197F. I keep a set of insulated gloves in the center console, so that I can hold the steering wheel with more than just my fingernails without getting burned.
Like I said, any season but summer!
I have to agree with this... When my girlfriend broke her iPhone 4, she tried to decide which phone to get. Basically, it came down to the iPhone 5 (with it's tiny screen) or the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (with it's ginormous screen). She ended up with the Note and was happy, especially after all her friends were jealous. After all, creating envy in friends is one of the prime purposes of a premium phone!
