Re: 25 years too late
It's pronounced 'Fronkensteen'!
I really do not get why sites have to become so 'dumbified' - everything is tablet-oriented now. Is that what these sites aim at - easy consumption of 'data' interspersed with ads? Cuz that's apparently still where the money's at.
Not happy :-(
Re: Flickr ruined
thanks for providing some examples of other sites. Will look into these :-(
I know, resistance to change is a natural thing. But, this flickr 'update' is absolutely horrendous. Won't be using this for long now... At least my pro-subscription ends some time next month.
I can't allow you to think that, Kyza

Re: Make some Real (additive free, fresh and honest) Bread cheaper than bought
I find the whole wheat / regular flour bread result to taste sweeter than 100% regular flour. Or maybe i just mixed up my measurements this one time...
But yes - i do love my bread machine - if only for it to do my kneading. Baking is done on either a french loaf pan or just my pizza stones. On 4 cups of flour, i use 1.5 whole wheat and 2.5 regular flour.
Bis / bes
Not sure how much has changed between 7.1 and 10, but the fact that there's no more bis on bb10, doesn't bode well. Maybe it's like a placebo effective, but it seemed all a bit more secure to me.
If nothing else, the fact we're no longer getting compression on the requested data, using a bb10 will cost more per month. Having read up on cost per plan in Europe vs US, I'm shocked. Shocked!
Re: Good point, Robin!
For a moment here I was back in a 60s Batman and Robin episode, where the Penguin would have stolen water from the British Isles...
Or as part of some plot when combined with Mr. Freeze...

Re: Bloody Americans
Hey, who are you calling a sissy here?
But, agree with Peter Simpson here... I was watching the start of the Oscar ceremony, when the 'I saw your boobs' song started. A distressed 'mom' quickly changed the channel until the song was over.
Dunno what icon to use here: sad face, thumb down, get my coat... Probably the 'won't someone think of the children!'.

No, they don't carry around guns and don't drive trucks to prove they da man...

Re: Interesting development
@people pointing to cnn:
- same conditions? Same test approach?
If not, no comparison.
Any fule kno that batteries will have problems when cold.
So keeping the car sit overnight w/o a full charge, may very well cause problems the next day.
At the same day the original review was posted, another article about e-cars in the Netherlands was posted. I'm paraphrasing here: a guy driving the Opel Ampera was shifting his driving habits because 'when the battery is warmer, I can drive further.'
So, to say 'CNN did it w/o any issues, so NYT is a liar' doesn't fly.
Re: Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk arguments are pathetic
Sounds to me this car is perfectly suited for driving in California. Fine. Keep it there. That NYTimes article only reinforces my idea about this car. Which is probably the reason why Tesla will keep trying to fight and win this PR kerfuffle.
Sat in one over the weekend, was disappointed with the legroom and headroom, absence of cooled (!) seats for a car in this price range, and that horrible touchscreen in the center console, with virtual buttons that are way too small to properly touch without looking.

Re: "Expected to survive"?
>If that isnt something to be impressed by, I dont know what is!
Well, not to be snarky (not at iglethal either) - in my opinion, it has to do with generations, i guess.
A lot of the replies to similar stories is along the lines of 'my smartphone has more processing power than this, and is waaay cheaper'.
With everything being dumbed down so much (national news on ABC a couple days back - "incredulity that an urang-utan was able to use an iPad to play a game and watch a video" - so goes both for the iPad and the fact that this is news...) - there's not a lot of thinking happening as to the 'how was it possible it lasted this long?'.

Re: A pretty car...
Looking at the usual sources -- this car is probably closer to a Nissan Maxima, rather than the Altima. Fun fact - can't fit in the Maxima, will fit in the Altima.
Always a (luxury?) problem, having to physically try out different cars.
Re: A pretty car...
I'm driving the Nissan Altima (same shape, but not the shiny buttons, wood and cow inside).
For a 6ft6 guy, this car is awfully roomy. When compared to other cars in this segment, the Altima is my fave. Cow and heated seats can be fitted after-market, even through your dealer.
Unfortunately in the US, the latest altima (2013 model) has been slightly redesigned, taking away some of the headroom when sitting in the back.
I did drive an earlier model altima hybrid - but wasn't impressed. Hybridness would only work once the car was warmed up enough, and then only when driving downhill both ways below 30mph.
I will check this one out - I'm guessing that one of these will hit the price point of a well-equipped altima...

Uhm, remember having to clean the innards of the mice, because lint, dust and crud would collect around the two axis thingies? Mice have not always been 'optical' based...

I, For one, welcome my developer overlords, working on the software for Orion, running on the latest smartphone.
I'm glad the Do Not Disturb bug is gone now, by simply ignoring it until it would work starting at a certain date.
Can you imagine the project management meeting? "Is this year a leap year? Is the 1st saturday of this year starting on a monday?"
I would feel so much safer as a passenger on these flights...
You have my stapler?

Re: The SCENE towards the end....
But he did see it, though.
Anyways - steven seagal - under siege. Of course, a more terrestrial threat - but if i remember correctly, veterans helped to take the ship back :-)
The 'acting' of some in those movies reminded me of young Anakin Skywalker - what's his name? Hayden Christensen...
Granted, the story he had to convey was set on rails (you know what he turns out to be like in earlier / older movies ...) so there was not a lot of 'artistic freedom' in there for him.
Still... Wooden, cardboard cut-out-like, are words that apply to both of them (and other 'actors' in both franchises...)

New unit please!
So instead of flying cattle-class, now we can choose to fly spud-class?
So the weight of a passenger can now be expressed by the weight in spuds? what kind of spuds, though? Irish, Chinese, Chilean?
