Re: Apple Recalling Millions Of Power Cords...

Well I have just counted 5 adaptors. I suspect there are 3 more floating around.

So you are in one of the affected countries? Or the adapters come from a World Travel Adapter Kit? And they have broken open, or you are afraid they [more]

Re: Tesla system

I would imagine rain and snow would be a big problem, making it difficult to see road markings and maintain its lane. Heck, as a human driver that can be difficult sometimes.

Re: Tesla system

I play around with Tesla's auto-pilot all the time. It's interesting, but it's not yet close to being self-driving. It's been clearly stated that a new sensor suite is required for true self-driving, not only more perceptive but multiply [more]

He doesn't explain it at all. He just says that it makes him nervous because it makes little sense to him.

Re: Domestic Terrorism Quiz

Hmm. 64%. Several lucky guesses. Only a few I was instantly sure of. I guess I'm still a good test taker. Not a skill that's of much use in life once one is past school age.

Re: I'm the gun owner you hate

As I've said, you're hard pressed to find a safer demographic than concealed carry holders.

Re: Early Retired 20-yr-olds Have Doubled

But is that considered retired?

I consider it so. But that's the problem right there -- "retired" isn't a well-defined term. So the data collected by any poll will be rather messy.

Re: Early Retired 20-yr-olds Have Doubled

I'm skeptical if 2.2% of 20 year olds earned enough to live off their earnings and retire...

I agree. Got married and no longer working would qualify as retired in most senses, so that's probably what's happening. My wife retired in [more]

Re: B & C Players

Apples software teams seem to have been overrun not by B and C programmers but by D,E and F.

Any evidence for this, or are you just making stuff up?
