The 13th floor was overshadowed by the Matrix, but in the end it was a much better story than the Matrix (unless you stop after the first Matrix).
I expected some 13th floor level nested realities with the Matrix, but was very disappointed (especially after the scene in where Neo seemed to have gained superpowers in the real world).

There are lots of moderate Muslims in the US and Europe.

There's few in the cities in large Muslim countries, and basically none in rural areas.

Moderates are a small group of the overall Muslim word, but in the West most Muslim are moderate. This has can be traced back to where and why they emigrated to the west.

This could / will change when / if refugees from more rural areas without higher education makes out a larger part of the Muslim population in the West.

It was not on the center console. It's not capable of video playback.

Unsafe behaviour doesn't get more safe by disabling safety systems. People do stupid shit behind the wheel every day. If you want to monitor autopilot users, perhaps we should start with something that makes more sense in terms of accident rates by installing breathalyzers in all cars?

The cards defined as gaming cards generated revenues of > $600M for Nvidia alone last year.
A large portion of that comes from retail cards.

Even if you're correct, and only 1% know how to install a graphics card (I think it could be 3-5%) - that part of the population represent far more than 1% of computers sold. Gamers buy new rigs every 12-24 months (or at least replace graphics cards). Non-gamers buy new computers every 5-7 years.
