Zappy Re:Intel (294 comments)

Intel MB may be fine, but stay away from the wireless 7260 series, they are utter crap and only work mostly with the very latest firmware and driver/kernel version.

Google's Driverless Cars Capable of Exceeding Speed Limit

Zappy Re:Safety vs Law (475 comments)

Maybe if you'd said 65 instead of 90, you'd be right. But any bump at 90 has a respectable chance of leading to loss of control by one or both vehicles; typical cars just don't maneuver at those speeds with unless it's very gradual.

I'm guessing your used to driving American cars?

Can You Tell the Difference? 4K Galaxy Note 3 vs. Canon 5D Mark III Video

Zappy Re:I could presumably count the pixels? (201 comments)

Some of the scenes it obviously showed the limited number of stops presented in the note3 video. Scenes with both shadows and full sunlight.

Overall though I was surprised at how close the two video's where.

EU Set To Charge Microsoft Over Ruling Breach

Zappy Re:They have to ban Windows in EU (254 comments)

You obviously need other reasons than usability to explain market share on the desktop.

The usability of the Linux desktop surpassed Windows well over a decade ago, but as you correctly point out adoption rates are close to zero. Even Apple which has arguably better usability than Windows have a very small share of the desktop.

Clearly usability has *nothing* to do with market share.
