Note that I said "the author", not "the peanut gallery".
Re: Wild bugs have parasites....
"We could use PETA members instead of insects."
No, too much crap in them, not worth the effort to clean.
"the topic is associated with climate change."
It is? Where does the author say one word about climate-related anything in the article?
Let me put it to you this way: if I was stranded on a desert island with nothing to drink but a case of American Budweiser, I'd drink sea water instead.
Re: I already have a cellar full of very long life beers
American Budweiser doesn't have a "best by" date. It's best not to brew it in the first place....
That ain't no DIP switch
The front panel clearly says "Alarm". The product specs state that it comes with "2 Digital In and 1 Digital Out Alarm connector".

Re: Suck my Glock..
I owned a Glock 17 a few years ago. The trigger insert does not qualify as a real safety in my book. If you keep a round in the chamber and anything gets inside the trigger guard and pulls back on the trigger, it will fire. The Glock's internal hammer is nice, but I prefer a real safety switch on my pistols.
The REAL reason
Microsoft made this deal just to artificially inflate their Windows 8 license count (even more).
Re: I can't wait.....
Note from Apple's lawyers: We have a patent on shit.
Re: 300+$ for such a limited tool?
On a side note: it's £299, not $299. £1 = $1.62 U.S., so that would make it $484.

Re: Cost of a replacement battery pack
It's worse than that:
"Tesla Motors stated in February 2009 that the current replacement cost of the ESS is slightly under US$36,000, with an expected life span of 7 years/100,000 mi (160,000 km), and began offering owners an option to pre-purchase a battery replacement for US$12,000 today with the replacement to be delivered after seven years."
Just not suitable for longer distances
How many petrol cars would get sold if the dealer told you "It only takes an hour to fill the tank" or "If you fill it too fast, you'll damage the tank"?
If this became standard procedure for POWs, I think a lot more men would die fighting.
Here are a couple newsflashes for you:
1. You aren't the only person with an opinion.
2. If you don't like someone else's opinion, don't read it.
What, me worry?
The Chinese public is apparently not too concerned, according to a recent survey by Dalian University of Technology, but perhaps they should be, given China’s track record on product safety, regulatory enforcement and workplace safety.
There are plenty more people where those came from....
Karma is a bitch.
Re: What a prat...
You either haven't installed IE10 or possibly don't recall this
I installed Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation (Build 9200) on my test machine. At no point during the installation was I prompted for anything about "Do Not Track". When I launched IE 10 for the first time, it never asked me about this, either.
Original -- Foxconn: We're not FORCING interns to make iPhone 5
Updated -- Foxconn: WE'RE not forcing interns to make iPhone 5
Foxconn isn't applying the stick (at least, not in public); they're just benefiting from the "mandatory employment".

Now back to work, you lazy college kids!
Re: What a prat...
Both Microsoft and Roy Fielding are wrong:
Microsoft -- Is it so f-ing difficult to simply ask the user about their DNT preference the first time they launch IE 10? Despite your company's belief, most users actually can think for themselves.
Roy Fielding -- What happens to those people who choose to enable DNT in IE 10? Can your patch distinguish between DNT enabled by default and DNT enabled by the user? No? You idiot.

Re: Not quite
> English is the language we have now. It is mostly derived from French brought here by William the Bastard.
English is derived from French? Connerie!
English is a West Germanic language that arose in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England and spread into what was to become south-east Scotland under the influence of the Anglian medieval kingdom of Northumbria.
I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!
It was actually Turkish door-to-door salesmen. That accounts for the spreading of the language and the "genetic contribution".
