Comment Re:What's the benefit of sending audio to both (Score 1) 131

In California, at least, it is illegal to operate a vehicle (car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle) with headphones or earbuds in both ears. Sure a lot of cars have bluetooth built in, but I own two that don't. Cops will almost never stop you for it, but if they're looking for a reason to pull you over, such as driving while teenaged, black, etc, it gives them a valid reason. I've used Jawbones for years, but they've devolved into crap, so I'm looking forward to getting these. I'm happy to wait until they get them right. I'll also use them as a pair for music.

Comment Re:Obama has no right to do this (Score 2) 447

He wasn't 'driven out' or 'expelled,' as he had no option of staying. He didn't run for a third term, he didn't declare himself President for Life. He'd have been leaving if Trump won, Clinton won, Sanders won, Stein won, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog won, whatever.

You can't be 'ousted' unless you'd otherwise still be in the position.

Really? Only rich ppl drive cars?
Last time I was in Europe, I saw PLENTY of regular ppl driving cars.
However, unless you get those ICE off the road, nothing will change. And making public transportation free will NOT change things. The reason why they are not taken is that they are no convenient and were poorly designed.

It's a problem that Harper won with ~40 percent of the vote. It's a problem that Trudeau did the same. It's a problem that the NDP won in Alberta due to vote splitting between the Wild Rose party, and the PC party.

This is why we need something other than FPTP.

Comment Re:I.e. Samsung acted recklessly for profit (Score 1) 284

Samsung is already on the hook according to the legal doctrine of res ipsa loquitor. Mobile phones aren't supposed to catch fire in you pocket. If they do, especially if lots of them do, the rebuttable presumption is that it's the manufacturer's or designer's fault. While there may be finger pointing between manufacturer and designer, California product liability law allows you to go after any link in the chain of commerce that is most convenient for you. In other states or countries, YMMV.

Comment Re:Maybe NOW we can have Nestle chocolate back (Score 1) 328

I remember some chocolate bar from when I was a kid, it was called '100 Grand' or something. It was a bar of chocolate with honey-flavoured rice crisps in it. One day, it just vanished.

I also remember when the changed the tomato sauce used in Alphaghettis, and then it sucked.
