    DEAD WD Easystore 14TB $189.99

    I see people getting excited about 10TB drives for $150, which I checked my receipts and is the exact same drive I bought more than a year ago for the same price. Feels bag mang. They do have 18TB drives though at least, which is nice, but the per TB price isn't shrinking fast.

    Don't be, that was the worst of the echos (crappy mic crappy speaker), and they just released a new generation.

    Microsoft Internal Documents - Permanent Work From Home

    The negative is outsourcing. If you can work from anywhere you have internet, why employ anyone in a high cost of living state? Or why in an expensive country at all? Why not some guys in India where the per capita GDP is $2K? I worked from home for about a year and a half and I loved it...

    Tesla's New Tabless Electrode Battery Cell Patent Is 'Way More Important Than It Sounds' says crazy-person Elon Musk

    Take a deep breath, now attempt to objectively review the net taxes or subsidies and government attitude toward coal and alternative energy. On some level you must recognize how downright idiotic it is to pretend that businesses like Tesla aren't the darlings of the government with billions in...

    Sweden Bans Hauwei from 5g Networks nationally

    It is in part a cultural issue. While cheating is frowned upon in Western society, and cheaters shamed, in China it is the cheated that are shamed for not being savvy enough. And its not just in industries, its pretty much universally expected that Chinese students will try to cheat on...

    Tesla's New Tabless Electrode Battery Cell Patent Is 'Way More Important Than It Sounds' says crazy-person Elon Musk

    Yes, because methanol is typically made from natural gas, and nuclear is a non-competing dead industry in the US so there's no harm in praising it. And you seem to be quite intellectually dishonest, pretending to be completely oblivious to the points made, and then when pointed out how wrong...

    Tesla's New Tabless Electrode Battery Cell Patent Is 'Way More Important Than It Sounds' says crazy-person Elon Musk

    Its quite blatantly obvious that you're a shill for the methanol industry, as no one could be that dense to genuinely believe that fleet fuel economy, displacement taxes, and the plethora of emissions regulations have no impact on engine performance and costs. For example, in the 1960s we...

    Tesla's New Tabless Electrode Battery Cell Patent Is 'Way More Important Than It Sounds' says crazy-person Elon Musk

    The report came from the ex-CEO of BP, and you have to realize that the statement is not something that is good for the oilfield industry; quite the opposite. Its essentially explaining why they are abandoning billions in exploration, because relatively new technologies such as fracking have...

    Sony LISTENS to Voice Chats to Scan for 'TOXICITY' in Latest PS4 Update?!

    Automation of undesirable speech recognition for flagging and review is something that is already being done on many platforms, and considering how advanced telemarketing spammers, siri, and alexa and the like are getting, I wouldn't be surprised to see something implemented that would spy on...

    Tesla's New Tabless Electrode Battery Cell Patent Is 'Way More Important Than It Sounds' says crazy-person Elon Musk

    Your divorce from reality is quite astounding... you act like the coal industry, relentlessly regulated into oblivion by the government, is somehow the pet of the government and receiving massive lobby money and a barrage of media misinformation campaigns, when its so patently obviously...

    Tesla's New Tabless Electrode Battery Cell Patent Is 'Way More Important Than It Sounds' says crazy-person Elon Musk

    I wouldn't buy into the climate alarmism at all. 1) The climate alarmists have a horrific track history at predicting the calamities they swore would happen when crying wolf. 2) They claim that any weird climactic event, which have always happened in history, are proof of global warming...

    Tesla's New Tabless Electrode Battery Cell Patent Is 'Way More Important Than It Sounds' says crazy-person Elon Musk

    Electric batteries predate the internal combustion engine, as do electric cars. There are some people that will argue about anything, but for the most part people don't really care if you're a boxers or briefs guy. The problem with electric is that its not a personal choice, but one that is...

    Tesla's New Tabless Electrode Battery Cell Patent Is 'Way More Important Than It Sounds' says crazy-person Elon Musk

    Your defense is that the substance of a post is less important than the tingles it provided you emotionally to read it? C'mon, certainly the factual accuracy is more important than the finesse of the delivery. You're absolutely right, although devil's advocate is that it shouldn't really need...
