Under the Chassis: A Look At Tesla's Battery Shield

glasshole Re:Problems? (152 comments)

You mean Tesla's problem of already being the safest car money can buy?

That is highly debatable. Please dial back the Tesla circle jerk just a tad.

Interviews: Jonathan Coulton Answers Your Questions

glasshole Pet project by samzenpus? (36 comments)

Samzenpus seems to ask the bulk of the questions. Was there little interest or was this really just so you could interview him yourself?

A 2560x1440 VR Headset That's Mobile

glasshole Re:Done with Oculus (135 comments)

Yep. I canceled my DK2 preorder. I'd be more than willing to direct those funds to someone else's preorder while my DK1 collects dust.

Meet the Diehards Who Refuse To Move On From Windows XP

glasshole Re:Not about greatness (641 comments)

Is there a way filter Hugh Pickens DOT Com articles? They're usually just a rehash of something discussed to death, and rarely bring a new point of view. Does nobody else submit content or is Hugh Pickens a slashcode bot...

Should Microsoft Be Required To Extend Support For Windows XP?

glasshole Where do you draw the line? (650 comments)

Photocopier vendors do not open the controller software up to competitors / vendors who provide support. They just give them specs for replacement parts. Do you force Apple to let 'competitors' support OS X 10.5 on G5 Macs? Do you force Google to let competitors still support Google Wave?

GameSpy Multiplayer Shutting Down, Affecting Hundreds of Games

glasshole Re:The Cloud! (145 comments)

Again do we really expect the target Chromebook consumer to be able to install Linux on them? Chromebooks are meant for mom and dad who can't fend off viruses and updates on their PC...

glasshole Re:The Cloud! (145 comments)

Totally, that is what you and I would do. But that isn't viable for every Chromebook consumer, or even the majority of them.

GameSpy Multiplayer Shutting Down, Affecting Hundreds of Games

glasshole Re:The Cloud! (145 comments)

I think these cloud services are a little different. You probably physically purchased games that are now unplayable because they don't have servers to connect to. Similarly if you bought a Chromebook and Google discontinued the Docs service you'd have purchased a very pretty brick.

No matter who it is, how long it has been around, or what the service is... if it is a cloud service it will one day go away.

60 Minutes Dubbed Engines Noise Over Tesla Model S

glasshole Re:I own one (544 comments)

I think having to spool the engine up or keep turbo boost is actually kinda fun. Same with rowing my own gears, driving fast should be a involving, I'm not trying to set perfect lap times on the open road :)

60 Minutes Dubbed Engines Noise Over Tesla Model S

glasshole Re:Top Gear was worse. (544 comments)

Can't argue with the final row of 2 seats, but without that option an M5 is a competitor, similarly priced, and certainly as fun to drive. Especially the previous V10 generation.

60 Minutes Dubbed Engines Noise Over Tesla Model S

glasshole Re:Top Gear was worse. (544 comments)

Having driven one extensively, it is kinda fun, but not in the sense that a Porsche Cayman is fun. It goes very fast off the line, but it is hard to hide its rather ample weight. Same deal with the Tesla Roadster too, having owned the chassis mate Lotus Exige for several years, the experiences weren't comparable.
