Comment Really? (Score 1) 641

I get the guy is grieving because he lost his kids, but that is some of the dumbest things I've ever heard. For the price of that tesla, he could be driving a porsche, or any other sports, or luxury car which would have a similar speed. It might not be 0-60 in 3.1, but when your drunk it doesn't really matter if its 3.1 or even 5 seconds because at .21 BAC the driver was wasted. I can't say that I haven't done the same thing when I was in that state, but it really is like playing russian roulette.

I have used wireless chargers in the past, and they are 100 times better than using a usb cable. I don't mind using a cable, but its just soo much easier, to just be able to put your phone down on the charger and not have to deal with it. Now I have a phone with USB-C which isn't as bad, since it don't matter what side you stick it in the connector, but it's still more hassle than it should be.

Comment Re:IMHO, not lazy, coddled. (Score 1) 491

I get that kids are coddled too much, but seriously, I don't see a lot of 25-35 year old executives of major corporations helping to make life easier for their generation. depending on what you read I was born in 1981 so I'm on the start of the millennial generation, I don't see anyone my age in any kind of real power, or trying to help make life easier, with maybe a few exceptions. Basically everyone is trying to milk everyone else form as much money as possible and no one gives a shit, and keeps blaming it on other factors or just how life is in general. IMHO it was the baby boomers are the ones that messed everything up for the generations after them. I wouldn't need to fix the world if the people before me didn't fuck it up.

Unions do some very underhanded stuff now a days, if the guy was paid by the union to instigate unitization then I agree with Mr Musk. I always say that unions were necessary up until the 80's, since then I have not seen them do anything other than destroy companies, and do almost nothing for their employees, all the while the union management walks away stuffing their pockets with cash.

HA HA HA A user serviceable mac, LOL you'll sooner find a user serviceable Iphone. To get what you want will never happen, pretty soon they will seal the entire thing in the case just like a phone. If you want to do anything to it its basically destroyed, Apple specifically doesn't want anyone touching anything inside of their tech. Don't fix it, just buy a new one is basically their motto.

Comment 2 screens really? (Score 2) 205

Ok, I get is technically 2 screens, but I just think that is the stupidest marketing idea ever. When you say 2 screens, I want 2 screens that are relatively the same size as each other, not one, and some sliver that can only display 4-5 icons stuck up above it. I'd be okay if they called it something else like notification bar or something, but don't call it a second screen.
