    0-60 in 2.8 Seconds In Tesla's "Ludicrous Mode'

    I think so. I drove a P85+ for the first time a few weeks ago as a loaner while my D was getting serviced. I floored it and got some tire squeal and the back end moved around on me a bit. Caught me by surprise. :eek: I upgraded from my vanilla 85. I sold it to CarMax right after the D...

    0-60 in 2.8 Seconds In Tesla's "Ludicrous Mode'

    I've got the P85D...and Insane mode is, well, insane. It is tempting to upgrade. And yes, as a poster said above, traction control is the unsung hero. I jackrabbit off the line all the time because it is such a kick, and I don't even turn heads because with no engine noise and no tire squeal...

    Odd Memtest86 Results

    I've been running Win 7 x64 rock solid stable with 8gig for about a year. In the past week, I get daily BSOD errors linked to hal.dll. Did a fresh install and same issues. Today I ran Memtest for about 4 hours. After about 2 hours or so, I noticed that it had made 4 passes with zero...

    300 Workers Threaten Suicide at Foxconn

    +1 It was amazing. I sent the link to Hardnews last night before this article was posted so Kyle would link the show off the front page. It really gives "life" to the story....

    DA Presses Charges in Lost iPhone Case

    Well... I read the arrest warrant which is the only document out there, the media included, the someone is held accountable for if they are not telling the truth. As I said.... where does the fact come from. I have read the media accounts, but no source. To answer your second question, I...

    DA Presses Charges in Lost iPhone Case

    As I said, *if* this is true, it could be used as a defense. Where does this "fact" originate from?

    DA Presses Charges in Lost iPhone Case

    That's not how it works though. The police agency (I think it was RWCPD) submits a report to the DA's Office. A charging deputy reviews the case to see if a crime was committed. The VAST majority of filed cases are low-level misdemeanors such as this. Happens everyday regardless of who the...

    DA Presses Charges in Lost iPhone Case

    Sorry.... I guessed I missed the part where I claimed all DA's are Gods. But good straw-man argument there... So just so I have your logic straight, two cases are evidence that the system is corrupt. I'm sure you are aware that there are literally hundreds of thousands (probably millions)...

    DA Presses Charges in Lost iPhone Case

    Well.... you are correct. *If* these rumors are in fact true, that would be a good defense against those charges. Go read the arrest warrant on the case. It is an interesting read.

    DA Presses Charges in Lost iPhone Case

    Hmmm.... ok... so anecdotal evidence proves your point in your opinion. Well... no use trying to have a conversation with people like you. If you think that all or the vast majority of DA's are "on the take" or in it for personal or politcal gain, I won't say anything to change your mind...

    DA Presses Charges in Lost iPhone Case

    First off... it is the San Mateo County D.A.'s Office.... not Santa Clara. I was a prosecutor there for many years and worked directly for Steve. These are good people who have to make tough calls every day. The two knuckleheads who had the phone are pretty much a slam-dunk conviction...

    +1. Anyone who knows the history of Apple knows that the Lisa, and subsequently the Mac GUI and mouse was lifted DIRECTLY from Xerox PARC after Jobs visited there in 1979.
