I've been waiting for a decent and affordable laptop ever since Toshiba first came out with color screens on theirs. I still don't have a laptop.

White House Drone Incident Exposes Key Security Gap

DocSavage64109 Re:banning is not the answer (235 comments)

Drones can operate in fully autonomous modes, so jamming frequencies won't protect against someone not using radio.

You just have to speed up the process a lot so that you are quickly milled to death.

Fake Engine Noise Is the Auto Industry's Dirty Little Secret

DocSavage64109 Re:So I can't sleep because engineers are jerks? (820 comments)

I'd bet what you hear are aftermarket exhausts. People love to install them due to marketing claims of gaining 10+ horsepower and they aren't required to meet government noise regulations ("off-road use only").

Fake Engine Noise Is the Auto Industry's Dirty Little Secret

DocSavage64109 Re:Noise (820 comments)

While objectively, he could have spent the 50k on a better car to start with, he did at least spend it on a hobby that made him happy, and he has something he put personal energy and can take pride in. Much like building your own computer vs. buying an alienware.

Some of the football players around here buy F-350ish looking F-450s or F-550s to haul around groceries.

I'm just curious. What the heck is "flare" in an automatic?

Fake Engine Noise Is the Auto Industry's Dirty Little Secret

DocSavage64109 Re:Just give the option to turn it off... (820 comments)

I second the "we don't need any more noise added". I guess if they have to pipe it into the internal stereo speakers, at least they aren't bothering everyone else. This is from someone who used to have a pickup with a 454 and headers and it would set off car alarms just driving by even before the exhaust pipes fell off. After the pipes fell off, it sounded just like a dragster at full throttle.

Google Plans Major Play In Wireless Partnering With Sprint and T-Mobile

DocSavage64109 Re:actual Google fiber customer (101 comments)

I've had google fiber for about a year now, and I must say that I have never had to contact customer service. The service they've provided me has been incredibly reliable.

Your Entire PC In a Mouse

DocSavage64109 Re:My mouse gets really dirty... (165 comments)

I use a wired mouse all the time and also hate mice that have resistance or pull. You just have to make sure the cable is supported (so gravity isn't pulling on the mouse) and that there is enough slack and the mouse is just as free as wireless.

They should add a small touch-sensitive screen and some phone electronics while they're at it.

I would have thought the same thing about Google fiber, but that seems to be working out fairly well.

Google fiber is working out great for me. It's nice that they aren't ripping me off like Time Warner was.

Best current live-action TV show based on comics?

DocSavage64109 Re:Don't Watch broadcast TV (148 comments)

Haha, I used to have Time Warner's Road Runner. A couple years ago, they were so over-subscribed that you couldn't play anything off youtube in the evening. Now that I'm on Google fiber, all that bs is gone and I'm happy to forget it - I still don't see a need to pay an extra $50/mo for TV though.
