I can attest to this. I got sick and tired of inkjets waking themselves up in the middle of the night to dump ink into the little sponge inside that let it evaporate. They call it "cleaning," but in reality it's just wasting ink so you have to buy more.
Inkjets are crack cocaine. We just have to break the cycle of addiction.
I bought an OKI B-4200 LED printer back in about 2005 and it is still working flawlessly today. I think I'm on my third toner cartridge in 8 years (we don't print that much).
We're thinking about replacing it with a Brother color laser, so it's good to know they have good driver support because I'm 100% Linux at home.
If these scientists are correct, then it is also possible to divide by zero, because bogodynamic quantum entanglement coefficients become both observable and reversible in the magnetoreluctant quasistatic interface between the non-observed static universe and the observed temporal-dynamic universe. Crossing this entanglement boundary requires continuous and differentiable traversal of an asymptotic gravitational cotangent function in the real plane by a moving observer.
Clearly this results in a !div0 error.
It both sounds like bullshit and not like bullshit, until you listen to it. Then, it'll sound like one or the other.
... put a tablet-like device in the dashboard running Android and write apps that perform the infotainment functions. They need to stop wasting time on these proprietary implementations and just start doing what most consumers are doing already - pairing bluetooth stereo and using their tablets/phones as their primary source of media and entertainment in the car.
I am the last person anyone should be calling in an emergency. I am not a firefighter, paramedic, doctor, or anything else that would be helpful in an emergency. There is no emergency out there that anyone should be calling me about.
Then again, as a society, we seem to have changed the definition of "emergency" to "anything that is the slightest bit inconvenient."
As another poster said, the human race survived thousands of years without being constantly connected to each other.
They really are out to get you.
Wasn't Saturn a direct-sales manufacturer before the failure and GM buyout? How did they sell cars in Texas, or did they?
Mod parent up. Cyanogenmod comes conveniently stripped of Google Apps and can be used as a "generic" operating system. I use CM on my devices without Google Apps and it's very pleasant. Battery life is amazing too as long as you don't have apps running that track you constantly (Facebook and other spyware) in the background.
I have a Gen1 N7 that I use basically just for playing music in the car, and Torque Pro for gauges. Vanilla CM is perfect for it.
My wife and I set aside several hours every day as "zero-technology" times. We use this time to read, play with our dogs, have meals together, work on hobbies, and hang out with friends and neighbors.
Everything gets powered down - no phones ringing, no "notification" sounds, no nothing. It's pretty amazing how it feels to be disconnected - like the old days before constant connection invaded and took over society.
The most annoying part are the phone calls about "OMG where have you been!?!?!?" that inevitably come after things get turned back on.
Where they have always been hiding - in the hardware itself. It's pretty safe to say that there will never be open-source silicon, and there will probably never be DIY silicon fabbing at home.
There are no games on this system.
