    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    Assumption: this isn't Federation space. This episode mentioned the collapse of the Neutral zone. Apparently the Romulan Star Empire fell apart after the nova. Patrick Stewart wanted to tell everyone that Orange Man Bad. I know you said "let's not bring real world bs into what I wrote...

    Tiger handheld game systems coming this fall for $15

    I read somewhere that someone found a way to breed out whatever it was that made them taste so nasty, so they're a lot better than they used to be.

    Intel's 10th-gen processors haven't been announced, but they are for sale

    I think the idea is that Intel hasn't come right out and said on the record that the next socket is 1200 pins, even though there's been leaks. An actual product saying it works with a socket that nobody's seen yet though is probably a pretty good confirmation.

    Tesla disables feature after car is purchased, claims feature 'wasn't paid for'.

    I'd need a BIG raise for that. Uh, so to speak. More money, I mean.

    Tesla disables feature after car is purchased, claims feature 'wasn't paid for'.

    Yeah. I wouldn't call that a subcription/service/SaaS in the modern sense, because to me that means you pay a monthly fee for ongoing access, and if you stop paying, you lose the functionality, just like cable.

    To suggest it's a service, is my guess. But unless you're paying a monthly fee, it's not really a service. You pay $7000 or whatever up front for the feature and lifetime updates, right? That makes it not a service. (I don't know, I don't have a Tesla.)
