And they also made it so you cannot get rid of Cortana. I did one better though. I reasoned that Cortana was using the Bing search engine. So I did and nslookup on bing.com - grabbed the IP address and blocked it on my hardware firewall. Here's just a snippet from my logs since the update.

Yeah - so the $12K Honda Civic at 40mpg with a 9 to 10 gallon gas tanks has a 360 to 400 mile range. Best electrics out there only get to about 200-250 miles on a charge. That would work for me for daily commute, but for longer trips a very fast charging method needs to be developed to say top a car to 85% charge in 10 minutes or less.

That there's all this debate about cell phone 'radiation'. It's non ionizing btw and it's RF energy - nothing more.

Let's face it we've all been exposed to high power RF signals for the better part of a century. So say it's the cell phones is a little bit narrow in thinking if RF does indeed cause certain cancers.

And need I remind you a lot of medical equipment absolutely RELIES on RF - like the MRI for instance.

I'd have to say the invention of the transistor was the most transformative thing to happen to society. Prior we had vacuum tubes sure but they were power hungry devices that made portable electronics impossible.

The transistor changed everything. It also allowed the device on which I'm posting to come about. A device admittedly a bit dated already but still enough to allow me to multi-task, listening to music, watching video, etc. And to continue the line of thoughts - the computer has invaded every aspect of life itself. All because of the invention of the transistor.
