acnicklas Re:Learning curve? (214 comments)

I may only have one parent. S/he may be the only one of his/her generation. Does qualifying my statement make it better?

8pen Reinvents the Keyboard For Mobile Devices

acnicklas Learning curve? (214 comments)

My parent's generation is still trying to figure out 3-3-3 for F, despite having an alpha-numeric keypad since the days of rotary phones. How are they supposed to learn this?

Electric Car Goes 375 Miles On One 6-Minute Charge

acnicklas One thick cable.... (603 comments)

I can't see this thing being hooked up to the 120V in the garage and still charging in six minutes... more like 460V 3-phase (disclaimer - I am by no means an EE).

I actually make it very, very clear when I'm raging on the road. Spares any confusion on the part of my passengers. Or other people's passengers.

Wikileaks Donations Account Shut Down

acnicklas Re:Uh (725 comments)

Regardless of the reactions and if they're justified or not, good luck being the prez who says "Well, we've got a smoking hole in lower Manhattan, but we're not going to change a single thing. Nope, just going to keep it the way it is...."

Google Maps Adds Drone Imagery

acnicklas Re:You don't know if the new images are from drone (141 comments)

Ummm.... if it's "non-satellite imagery," where else could it be from? I'd think a guy taking pictures out of a Cessna wouldn't be very economical long-term compared to a drone.

Could Anti-Texting Laws Make Roads More Dangerous?

acnicklas Re:Allow texting while stopped (709 comments)

It's just The Way It Is. I live in the Northeast (hint - Yankees Suck!), and when everyone drives like that, you get more cars through the green, and everything goes smoother. I've also lived in NC, and sometimes the third car wouldn't make it due to the inability of some people to stay on top of their driving. Obviously, these are generalizations, and there are always exceptions, but I think asshole driving = better driving. NB - Asshole driving =/= road rage, which is an special, advanced case.

Could Anti-Texting Laws Make Roads More Dangerous?

acnicklas Re:Allow texting while stopped (709 comments)

I last about 1.3 seconds before laying on the horn when I'm waiting behind an idiot stopped at a green. Good luck getting a cop there before that.

Pentagon Selects Companies To Build Flying Humvees

acnicklas Re:One word: (302 comments)

While Humvees are indeed heavier than this (5200-5900 pounds,

When I left Afghanistan about six months ago, Humvees were well over 10,000 pounds. Come to think of it, they weighed about the same in Iraq in 2006.
