New England: Cradle of the Revolution... and Bad Drivers?
Thu Aug 28, 2014
In reply to: Genenut #4 If only that was all they did... can't forget that out here they expect the entire interstate traffic to yield so they can get on when they want to get on. I installed a 'black box' camera into my car that records continuously whenever my car is on. Similar to a dash cam in p …
High-Tech Cooler Raises More Than $10.3 Million, Breaks Kickstarter Record
Wed Aug 27, 2014
In reply to: Heartland2718 #4 Embezzlement! In reality though most of it will be wasted due to inexperience. From the description of this kickstarter, this guy has never managed a budget of anything even remotely close to this size. What happens when people win the lottery? I wish him the best of lu …
This $22 Gadget Could Get You Kicked Off a Flight
Tue Aug 26, 2014
In reply to: Tetrapoda #1 Back to the original comment at hand... I'm 6'3" so I know exactly what the original poster is saying. This has nothing to do with free space, because there is no free space. When I sit in an airline seat, my knees are already touching the seat in front of me, even when it …

Barnes & Noble and Samsung Team Up For a New Tablet
Wed Aug 20, 2014
Reading on a tablet is horrible. E-ink all the way for reading, it's really superior in every way. A backlight only helps at night, but then you shouldn't be reading in the dark anyways. I have the original Kindle, it's going on nearly 7 years now and still works. When it does die, there is no way I …
Self-Driving Cars May Rule the Road in 25 Years
Mon Aug 18, 2014
In reply to: opinionated high horse #11 You must of gotten that from the pie in the sky video about powered roadways and such... I didn't watch it. That's all garbage like people use to dream about flying cars in the 60's. No, the reality is just regular cars that have a self-drive option. They'd st …
Pop-Up Ads Creator Ethan Zuckerman: 'I'm Sorry'
Fri Aug 15, 2014
In reply to: Trekohio #8.1 Adblock Plus gives me a free no ads subscription to every single website on the internet. It's seriously the best thing that has happened to the internet. Very easy to add it onto Firefox of Chrome, just one click and there are no settings that need fiddled with.
Amazon Introduces Credit-Card Reader to Compete With Square
Wed Aug 13, 2014
Sure, and what's the rate *after* 2016? That's what matters most. They say 2.5% right now, compared to PayPal's 2.7% and Square's 2.75%. But who knows what will happen in 2016? Amazon has been raising their prices across the board, including their own services like Prime.
Google To Give Secure Websites a Search-Ranking Boost
Thu Aug 7, 2014
Unfortunately a website using https doesn't do anything to prevent SQL injection, which is the cause of most of the data breeches you hear about. It also slows down, well, everything. Encrypting traffic costs CPU time. I'm all for the use of https ... but only on pages with personal information. Not …
Billion Passwords Stolen: Change All of Yours, Now!
Wed Aug 6, 2014
In reply to: Mr. Steady #14 They already are. The passwords are obtained through a method called SQL injection. In short, they trick the website database into spitting out the entire database rather than just a single row. Each row will have all the user's information (username, real name, e-mail ad …
