    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    Cool, we'll use your source. :D So given the best case estimate they provided, a 50MWh PV with only a 4 hour battery still costs 2.3x more money than gas. Of course, factor in the actual efficiency (20% vs 55%) and lifetime (25yr vs 20yr) and that rises to at least 5x more expensive. Thanks for...

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    I am right. Please do your own math and don't rely on the lies from government or green media. You will see how false the narrative really is and how damaging solar is to our economy. Bingo. It's a total lie. Solar is only 20% efficient, 24 hours a day. They also aren't factoring in lifetime...

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    No it wouldn't. Solar is stupidly expensive and inefficient. It's used across 3.3% of the US, because it costs too much and would bankrupt the country. California has their heads so far up their ass that they are going to shut down a perfectly good clean, nuclear power plant that supplies 9% of...

    Rumor: Nvidia allegedly halting RTX 3000 production this October to keep prices as high as possible until 1H22

    Duh You print money, dollar gets devalued. We devalued the dollar by over 25% already, in the last 2 years, based on debt/GDP. Still betting on a Newegg Shuffle... Microcenter had a "deal" last weekend. Should have jumped on it.

    Canon Sued over Multifunction Printers that Refuse to Scan When Ink runs out.

    I got tired of replacing Canon ink and then HP printers a day after their warranty expired from some random software "error." My wife said her dad swore by Brother, so I have been using a $99 multi-function laser now for years - no problems! Screw those others guys.

    Rumor: Nvidia allegedly halting RTX 3000 production this October to keep prices as high as possible until 1H22

    There's no way this is true. It makes no sense. Graphics cards are selling faster than tickets to your mom. nVidia wants to make demand higher, because demand is not high enough? If they build it, they will come.

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    ...and they only last 25 years, just like the panels. Probably less for molten salt plants. Do the math and look at everything else that was said. Please review the facts and respond to them. Tell me - which comes out ahead? We are far better off not bankrupting the country, starving the...

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    Nope. Not even close. Do the math. Take whatever power output the solar plant is listed at and divide by 5. That's the actual efficiency (20%). The sun doesn't shine 100% or at 100% all the time. Every power plant has this - it's called the "capacity factor." The numbers are a big scam. Wait...

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    Yup. California facing future blackouts and energy shortfall already due to all those pipe dream solar/wind power plants they keep building. Now, they're building new dirty gas power plants to support them. That's because wind/solar cost 3x/6x more than conventional technologies. Too lazy to do...

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    I like the data in the video. However, what about the economic tradeoff? The money wasted on EVs could go toward building cleaner, lower cost power plants like nuclear. I also bet the real numbers are at least twice as bad, since he primarily pulled them from Tesla as well as how much deception...

    NVIDIA LHR Cards Full Unlocked Mining Performance

    It's called the "invisible hand." If prices were lower, product would be even harder to get. Time = money. You have to balance scarce resources somehow. Anything else is Marxism. Newegg has a Newegg shuffle. It's like a lottery to buy cards at ~MSRP or slightly above. Have been entering for...

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    Necro bump. Yup, keeping my 2011. Will be a collector car, someday. It's effectively the same car as the 2014 models with a better looking hood - the last year Ford built real Mustangs. In 2015 the size got SMALLER, MPG got WORSE, horsepower became LESS and the power to weight ratio got WORSE...

    Bad Day for Facebook: Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Messenger all Down amid Whistleblower News

    Copper Foil Shortage

    Pretty sure this has more to do with the dollar nonshortage than globalization. We printed enough dollars to increase the national debt by 31.3% since 1/19. Inflation is playing catchup. All these "shortages" are really a shortage of parts/labor at pre-pandemic prices. Those prices aren't coming...

    Activision Blizzard agrees to pay $18 million to settle EEOC probe

    I think you pretty much proved the point that this is a divisive issue used to divide people. Nice work with the character attacks, too. You got me - I do Jell-O advertisements in my spare time! The problem is you have these "chief people officers" whose sole role is to instill fear in...

    Activision Blizzard agrees to pay $18 million to settle EEOC probe

    That's 18 million dollars? Let's see... a company made up primarily of highly paid software developers, which has traditionally been dominated by men (my computer science female friend would attest to that), gets paid more than women, pays men more... I wonder why? ...and what exactly is a "frat...

    5950X - Newegg Shell Shocker for $729

    What's a computer?

    Probably looks just like their dorm room. Sounds like most post 2K kids have regressed to the same file saving habits as my parents - everything on the desktop. It's because many parents hand a kid a tablet when they are 3 and let Apple raise them. They're used to only interacting with icons...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    I'm on 8.1 only because drivers demanded it. Looking at switching entirely to Linux Mint, after being forced to use some Ubuntu at work. Have switched to Mint on my laptop - it looks pretty sweet. Disagree. If it dynamically moves, which I assume it must, then it takes more time to locate it...

    My bad! I had a specific clueless, mid-millennial in mind when I wrote that. Realize that most of the audience here are probably older millennials - no offense to you all.

    Trailer looks like 99% of new action movies - Michael Bay BS. As expected. Nostalgia cash-in for the millennials. Please inform your late millennial/gen Z/alpha kids that the majority of the great movies are NOT on Netflix/Amazon Prime/Hulu/Disney+. You are better off watching the originals...

    Proton mail may log ips after all...

    Toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe. Reduces the point of using them if they are going to freely hand your IP/identity to the government anyway. Sure you can use a VPN or TOR, but all it takes is one time where you don't. Nord used to be pretty good. Except now they force you to login through their...

    Summer of 58 Dev quits over steam return policy

    I was talking about Steam. Is that what you are talking about? They could have used Origin or released it from their own website. Should have read the T&Cs themselves. Why didn't Five Nights at Freddy's have this problem, if the game was so great? They were also able to release on multiple...
