Hipsters snap up iPod Classics for $$$s after Apple kills rusty gadget

Montreal Sean

Re: hard drive players...

I have a 6th gen 80GB model that is still seeing at least 5 hours of use a day connected by usb to my cat stereo. On battery it still manages ~25 hours of play per charge.

I also have a 6th gen 160GB model that has barely been used, bought it for home use connected to my stereo but almost never turned it on. It's battery still runs almost 30 hours.

I love the Classic, much more than the 4th gen Touch that I was given as a gift.

Re: I bow to the master

La Belle Pro chicken poutine with a cold can of Coke* may just have to be put on the back burner for a while so I can try this killer.

* though my family has been in Quebec for at least a couple of centuries, I'm an Anglo so no Poutine and Pepsi for me. :)

Quebec's latest bid to break away from Canada HALTED by a single dot

Montreal Sean

Re: Petty cash

We are apparently poor enough that the government of Quebec is contemplating austerity measures which will see us lose some of our social programs. Though we will still be losing a good 1/3 of our salaries to provincial taxes each year.

This despite the CAD $2billion in transfer payments we get each year from the richer provinces.

Raspberry Pi mini-puter TOO BIG and EXPENSIVE for you? Think AGAIN

@Phil_Evans

Of course UK prices are always more than USA prices for American goods, it's expensive to hire people to translate everything to English.

MARS NEEDS WOMEN, claims NASA pseudo 'naut: They eat less

Re: Testosterone may not help the trip

Women will ask for directions, but men can almost always find their way home even piss drunk.

And when they can't, they usually end up pounding on the house next door. Saturn could be interesting to colonise...

Tesla's Elon Musk shows the world his D ... and it's a MONSTER

Montreal Sean

Re: Charging issues? Range?

This isn't a problem for everyone.

Here in Quebec the head of Hydro-Quebec (our sole electricity provider) told us our grid could support a million electric cars, with no upgrades to the grid.

That was almost a decade ago, and improvements have been made since both in EV tech and our grid.

Maybe we're a special case though, we have plenty of renewable electricity from our hydro dams.

The problem is worse than reported!

Yesterday I was standing in an elevator and the person next to me was talkking on their iPhone 6/Plus.

What kind of car are you driving that you need to look at your wrist to tell the time?

Stalwart hatchback gets a plug-in: Volkswagen e-Golf

Montreal Sean

Re: No spare wheel?

If my battery goes flat I can always push start my manual tranny car.

If I have a blowout, I need a tyre of some kind in the car.

I would much rather dirty my hands changing a tyre than wait (possibly) hours for a tow service.

Amazon wants me to WEAR NAPPIES?! But I'm a 40-something MAN

Montreal Sean

Re: Cloth nappies FTW

We tried cloth nappies with our first son, 5 years ago. Really, we did. We were pro-planet, cloth is better for baby, who cares about the initial cost because we save money in the long run parents.

But, he would soak the nappies and any clothes he was wearing at the time.

That doesn't sound too bad, except he did this almost hourly. Even with the extra inserts and the "waterproof" cover.

Disposable worked out cheaper because with them we managed to keep our sanity.
