Re: 'Kaspersky' is the problem
Or "PCmatic" . . .
oh, probably only US TV watchers have seen the ads for this "Home Grown" software that "invented white lists" . . . made in 'merica, gotta be good.

"Honestly, however you want to point it, using a mouse is not hard. The concept takes seconds to learn and the co-ordination little longer. I don't buy this whole pensioners don't have the experience line. Its basic hand-eye co-ordination."
In the words of Bugs Bunny, "what a maroon". Poor analogy, no empathy. Nothing to do with hand eye co-ordination and everything to do with "prior experience".
Even using your analogy, poor as it is, at some point, "driver trainee" had been shown the basics of steering wheel usage, had been a passenger in some vehicle with a steering wheel or, at least, seen a movie or TV show depicting such usage and so gained basic knowledge of steering wheel usage.
Get your head out man.
So, your complaint is that Hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicles are not "Free Energy" vehicles?
The cited article does not mention the Mirai, but only previous attempts. No idea if the Mirai gets better "mileage". Not much of an "analysis" from what I read, more of stated opinion with a few claimed facts tossed in.
In any event, even the author states he is expects energy costs to be comparable (at some point?) to "fossil fuel" vehicles.
So what? The proper comparison is Granny Smith to Golden Delicious. Electrics to Electrics that is.
Don't forget to factor in the Lithium mining, refining, etc. and other production costs of the batteries. I think a proper full analysis has yet to be done.
Shame there is such a bias against Hydrogen, as in Fuel Cell, vehicles.
The Toyota Mirai is an example of such a vehicle, apparently quite successful. Too bad the powers that be refuse to allow a support system to be built, California excepted that is.
Personally, I'd rather have a vehicle I could "recharge" in minutes vs hours and one where I could use the heater and/or AC as needed, without cutting driving range so drastically as current all electrics do.
15 years ago, or so, a number of people where warning about "electronic voting" machines, especially those from Diebold.
We know the problems, "touch screen pads", no "paper trail", no credible means of recount. At the very least the units that require a "scan card" to fill out allow a recount or even a hand tabulation in a real dust up.
Talk to some real experts, they were warned, not to marketeers.
Yet we still see the vulnerable machines in use.
But, but, what about them?
You know, those Corporate Tit-ans whose compensation packages would shame King Midas? Whose "exit packages" may reward incompetence or malfeasance?
Sure Unions can be corrupt, but then, they are lead by Humans, are they not?
Full disclosure, I was a union member at one job. When I was not renewed, due to a dispute with a "manager", after years of glowing performance reviews, the union rolled over and did nothing at all for me.
For some time I have floated the idea that "point source" generation (or "point of use" or "neighborhood" if you prefer) was a much better concept than the "mega plants" and the distribution system that was conceived so long ago.
Hydro, solar, fuel cell, and small "conventional" plants could all come into play.
Has not gained much traction for the standard reasons.
Clearly you and apparently others, have no clue how Hydrogen Fuel cells work. Google among others might be your friend.
Clearly, your Engineering and other research is far superior to Toyota. This is proven of course, by your refraining from investing even a penny, where Toyota has squandered so many millions on this inferior technology.
Tesla . . . meh . . .
Gimmie a Toyota Mirai (and a place to fuel her). Hydrogen fuel cell powered electric vehicles make much more sense, to me, than storage battery based vehicles.
Longer range, faster "re-fueling" and it could double as an emergency power generator if equipped with an inverter.
IF that is the the motivation for (what the) eff pursing this, then simply press for legislation that requires the manufacturer to open up the diagnostic software and interface specs.
But the real reason, one suspects, is otherwise.
Fine and dandy to open stuff up, but I recall, in the dim time, being told by "experts" that "no one would do that" when warning of malware, back doors, etc, or that "they" were "too dumb" to figure out how in any case.
Perhaps Boeing, Lockheed, Airbus, etal, should be required to open up their aircraft control software as well. Won't that be loads of fun, eh?
