Comment Re:soon self driving cars will (Score 1) 581

of course it is going to put a hell of a lot of people out of work, not saying its right, not saying its wrong. but just that it will eventually happen, how fast it happens i dont know. just that the technology is there and that is what it is capable of doing, (automating transportation) it might take the next 50 to 100 years to make human drivers obsolete, heck it might even make airline pilots obsolete too

Comment 700 acres??? (Score 2) 284

sheesh! what is zuckerburg trying to do? start his own country? even if i was a billionaire i would not want more than maybe 1 square mile, heck i could find plenty of privacy in 20 acres of back wood land in rural montana or wyoming, build a nice warm mansion that looks like a GIANT log cabin in where it cant be seen from the nearby roads, and put up a chainlink fence around it topped with razor wire, and motion detectors & security cams

Comment too bad firefox is bloatware (Score 1) 185

while palemoon (fork of old firefox version) performs better. i switch between palemoon and chromium depending on which websites i visit, mozilla should do a spinoff of firefox and make a lightweight version, what is ironic is firefox used to be a lightweight version of the original browser made from the mozilla/netscape code.

Comment Re:Credit card chargeback. (Score 1) 88

i canceled after 3 months because direcTV was about half spam channels (home shopping & infomercials) and they said i had to pay for a whole year contract, i immediately called my credit card company and told them i lost the card and to refuse any future charges on it and send me a new card with a new number, that left directv out in the cold with a defunct card number so they cant rob me for a year's worth of payments

Comment i always hated tape (Score 1) 564

all formats, reel to reel, 8-track, cassettes, etc...

tapes can stretch, sooner or later something is going to hang up and you will have stretched tape, with the exception of computer files CD/DVD is the only way to go, just keep them clean & dry and always keep them in their jackets when not in use so they dont get scratched

Comment this gives me an idea (Score 1) 88

get a startup going with a clever idea, use a GoFundMe or some sort of Kickstarter financing website to collect funds for my clever idea project, dont build anything and collect millions of dollars, after the money sits in a bank for a while make a press release that the project failed and investors have to send a self-addressed stamped envelope for a refund, send all those that send a SASE a refund, keep the rest of the money plus the interest it made while sitting in the bank which could be many thousands of dollars
