Ask Slashdot: What's the Most Hackable Car?

pinzvidz Re:I just want to... (183 comments)

Too bad it wasn't a VW. They have engineered their BCMs to monitor the battery voltage and automagically switch the radio off (in accessories or key off/radio power button override mode) when it drops to a certain voltage, to save the battery from getting too flat and not being able to start the car. Depending on the volume level is how long you get out of it before it turns off. Awesome German engineering. Shame about their DSGs, though... :P

Is LG's New Ultra Widescreen Display Better Than "Normal" 4K?

pinzvidz Oh no, not again... (304 comments)

It took production studios and prehistoric TV stations forever to switch fully to 16:9 content, I can just see the "black bar either side" syndrome kicking in again for another decade. Sigh. Now I'm going to go watch ST:TNG on one these new LGs. :P
