How Europe Will Lower Emissions — Self Driving Cars

mseidl Re:Lower emissions? (317 comments)

I remember a contest when the first Honda Insight was available, one of the teams use a Ford Excursion, and they opened up the back completely and put these wooden boards underneath it to divert all air away from the vehicle. Then they made a trip while drafting super close to the Excursion. On a car rated at something like 50mpg, they ended up getting 150mpg. On the highway wind resistance is huge.

The PlayStation Move Arrives — a Hands-On Report

mseidl Re:Responsiveness (185 comments)

I've had the opportunity to play the Kinect, Move and the Wii Motion +. Kinect is just garbage. But, I found the move much more accurate for 1:1 motion vs. the Wii. also Engagdet liked it better than the wii.

The other issue is why are people harping on him for endangering civilians? How many civilians did the US military already kill? They pose a much greater threat to civilians than the wikileaks ever will.
