Ask Slashdot: What Would It Take For You To Buy a Smartwatch?

trailerparkcassanova I wear an automatic wristwatch (427 comments)

I wouldn't replace it with a smartwatch. I wouldn't even replace it with a quartz watch. I wear 3 silver Navajo bracelets on my opposite wrist so there's no place left for a smart wristwatch.

FAA Wants All Aircraft Flying On Unleaded Fuel By 2018

trailerparkcassanova Re:Thanks Slashdot. (366 comments)

100LL is lower lead relative to what it replaced, 100/130. It still has too much lead for a car engine. Your plugs will lead foul very quickly even with Alcor TCP (lead scavenging additive) added to the fuel. Go ahead and try it but don't fill the tank.
