Tesla Model S Has Hidden Ethernet Port, User Runs Firefox On the 17" Screen

okle69 Re:Should void warranty (208 comments)

Sorry, misspelled Magnuson-Moss Act. And to further clarify you can only mod so far... i.e. supe up your engine too much and your tranny breaks, you're out of luck. But you can do some go-faster mods with little to no worries.

okle69 Re:Should void warranty (208 comments)

I'm assuming you're not in the US? Here we can modify our cars to our heart's content, as long as those modifications are not the cause of the item to be repaired under warranty they cannot count against you and the warranty must be honored. It's called the Magnusson-Moss Act.

XBMC V11 Eden Has Been Released

okle69 Re:XBMC is (195 comments)

The appeal is having a dedicated low power, small box to just push media to your home theatre that can be controlled via remote, instead of moving around windows between displays and having to worry about your other activities interfering with your movie watching, etc.

okle69 Re:Finding a phone (222 comments)

I love how I can have all my contact info (or anything to help get my phone back to me) scrolling across the screen when the lock is active in Ice Cream Sandwich. Best of both worlds.

Scientifically, You Are Likely In the Slowest Line

okle69 Inside banks, but not (464 comments)

outside at the drive-up ATM? this is maddening! I have 3 ATMs at my local BoA and I try to wait for the next one to become available, but most times I'm forced to pick one at random (of course the slowest) because some asshat behind me lays into his horn until I do
