anonymous coward 2.0 Re:Imagine buying one of those... (378 comments)

Ah just realized that the "interior images" is not model S images... disregard the above... Their web site could be a bit better organized.

Tesla Releases First Official Photos of Model S Sedan

anonymous coward 2.0 Re:Imagine buying one of those... (378 comments)

The body work is different, but the interior is clearly still related to the Lotus Elise. The cowling over the speedometer, and the air vents in the dash are leather coated versions of what I have in my car. It kinda looks like they still don't have a glove box or cup holder... just like the Elise.

CNN Runs Afoul of Browser Compatibility

anonymous coward 2.0 anonymous coward 2.0 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

anonymous coward 2.0 (751581) writes "It seems that browser compatibility testing sometimes gets the best of major media outlets. CNN seems to have forgotten to test on anything other than IE 6 for it's latest release. There's an error in their main.js file, and from there chaos ensues including the style sheets never getting loaded... I think I'll vote for someone other than the CNN web team today!"

Office Max Snubs 15-25% of Web Users

anonymous coward 2.0 anonymous coward 2.0 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

anonymous coward 2.0 (751581) writes "I went looking for business cards on line for an organization I volunteer for, and was floored when I got to the business card section OfficeMax's web site. What I got was a page with a single line of text that read : "For this functionality please use Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.0 and higher". Wow. Given the latest browser stats it's pretty clear that at least 15% of the web is not using IE, and perhaps as much as 20-25%. How is it that OfficeMax can afford to screw somewhere between 1 in 6 to 1 in 4 visitors to their site. Is this a sign of a re-incarnation of the brower wars? I can't imagine Office max did this without some form of incentive... At least they don't normally seem to be that dumb."

MySQL Falcon Photo-op Goof

anonymous coward 2.0 anonymous coward 2.0 writes  |  more than 7 years ago

anonymous coward 2.0 (751581) writes "MySQL is working on a new storage engine, code named "Falcon", and that may turn out to be a good thing. For publicity they gave a donation to the German Raptor Research Centre which is definitely a good thing. Unfortunately, the photo they chose to show the creator of the falcon engine with a falcon was a poor choice. I'm sure the folks who chose the code name were thinking of the fast areal hunters, that are masters of the sky all over the world (the genus Falco), or perhaps the small, fast lightweight Falconets (genus Microhierax). One really doubts they were thinking of a sluggish carrion feeding bird found only in the SW US, Mexico and South America (genus Polyborus>/i>). Yet that is what Jim Starkey, inventor of the falcon engine is holding on his hand. I love MySQL and use it happily, but this is a rather amusing PR goof. Here's another very nice photo of the same bird."

iPhone/iTunes 7.3.2 Requires MS Outlook for PC

anonymous coward 2.0 anonymous coward 2.0 writes  |  more than 7 years ago

Anonymous Coward 2.0 (751581) writes "I got an iPhone and was reasonably happy. There has only been one major issue... on the PC platform, the only program to sync calendars to is a full version of Outlook (Express won't do). That was annoying and represented a $65 hidden cost (under my company's MS Employee purchase plan). I get paid fairly well so I just shelled it out. But now with the new iTunes Apple has made it mandatory that MS Outlook be the default mail client!"
