Do we mean better, or do we mean more amenable to japanese political influence?
There will never be peace as long as at least two people want to be better than everyone else. Only one person can be at the top of the list, and if you have more than one person competing for that spot you're going to have conflict.
Don't talk down to me like I'm some doddering old man yelling at kids to get off his lawn.
Actually it was the opposite, that you are a snot nosed kid that doesn't understand history past your last summer break from high school.
Exactly - and it was wrong. Copyright was never meant to apply for decades, or centuries, or longer. Copyright law today is a corruption of copyright, plain and simple.
There should be no surprise that few people have any respect for copyright law.
Features like keyless entry are apparently run by that computer and so it never goes into a deep sleep state.
That is an utterly unsatisfying explanation in a world with hardware interrupts.
A typical high end mobile phone with wifi and 3G connections and background sync is more like 1 or 2W maximum (averaged over a day, of course).
And they will wakeup from deep sleep if you press a button.
Only works if you like popular music in your area. If you like something more alternative, or just from a different part of the country, local broadcast is rather inadequate.
Today we have this thing called the internet to be able to experience music unavailable locally. But it wasn't all that long ago where all you had was a few odd magazines like goldmine.
I do, however, happen to know people, like myself, who may well be interested in such an 'expensive' vehicle (my current car is a BMW7) , bur also have some real-life issues, like weekend homes, where they like to switch the power off,
While you're there? If not, take the car with you. If so, then install a small off-grid maintenance solar system. You've already got kooky habits.
streets in cities where they like to park for more than a few days without a handy power socket, etc.
You'd park a 7-series on the street for days? Not me.
I remain unconvinced, 1100w (per day - which I call when no one else does
I agree. The computer should sleep when not in use. That's excessive.
Welcome to the world of cars which are not astoundingly expensive. The 2000+ Astro will drain the battery if you leave the keys in the ignition. Apparently, so will the 1992+ Ford F250, and it doesn't even have a BCM! Nobody was sending techs 'round for those problems, either.
The problem with the 12 volt battery is exactly what caused all the problems with the review car that John Broder wrote about. Hmm, I guess Broder might not have been the big liar that Musk and his gang of fanboys painted him out to be.
Nope. This problem is with the car sitting still. That was a complaint about the car running out of battery precisely when it told the driver that it would, after he failed to charge it when it told him to. Broder is still a liar.
You keep trying again and again until the opposition blinks.
I'm certain this is absolutely pointless to say now, but most of those setups were designed so that spring pressure had to be overcome to close the lenses; that way, if the mechanism did fail, it *should* fail-safe to the open position.
Well, no. Not in the Nissan. Like most imports, the Nissan uses a worm gear motor to actuate the headlights, or at least, it did from the eighties to the nineties. It was true in my 1984 300ZX, and it was true in my 1989 240SX, so I'm quite sure it was also true in the 1986 Pulsar. The motor pack has an arm on it like a windshield wiper, and a short pushrod attaches with small ball joints. The best part of the whole thing is that on the top of the motor there's a small knob in the same brick-red color as the fuel injector harness connectors. If your pop-up headlights fail, then you just disconnect the electrical connector if necessary and turn the knob to raise or lower the headlight. Since it's a worm gear drive it takes quite a few revolutions, but that's not a serious problem.
Globalists are mostly fools. Those who actually understand what they are doing may or may not be fools, but the masses who believe in the hype are most certainly fools.
Every one of these "free trade" treaties compromises one or more nation's sovereignty. We, here, in the US, can clearly see that these "intellectual property" treaties are so much hogwash, are being sucked into the treaty. After signing, our (mostly bought and paid for) politicians can then refuse to pass laws that we demand, claiming that they would violate international treaties.
It's as bad, or worse, for other nations. Some third world nation, where people might make a couple thousand dollars PER YEAR, can't afford to pay the prices for our software under any circumstances. Today, the people might pirate an operating system, but with the trade agreements, piracy could result in a lifetime imprisonment. Or death.
Almost no one benefits from these treaties, almost no one benefits from globalization, except corporations.
