    Elon Musk Personally Cancelled Customer's $130K Car Order

    Actually Tesla is hurting. Turns out that with oil at $30 a barrel people aren't clamoring for electric cars anymore. Toyota's recent sales consisted of 58% trucks and SUVs. Tesla stock is way down, GM is entering the cheap electric car business, and they delivered over 4,000 fewer cars in...

    Microsoft Dropping Unlimited OneDrive Storage

    What was Microsoft's term? Oh yeah, Scroogled. Who knew that would be a term in their own terms and conditions? Oh, and Bing sucks. I only use it when I know Microsoft can't screw up a search result. And they give me points that I can cash in for Amazon gift cards. If I need a real search I...

    'Steve Jobs' Movie Bombs

    Yelp Reviewer Must Pay Contractor $1,000

    If the proprietor of the business does not have a license then probably is not remitting the sales tax and probably not paying federal or state income taxes on his earnings. If this is all true then suing this lady could be the stupidest thing he's ever done. But that would mean that a...

    YouTube ‘Dancing Baby’ Copyright Ruling Sets Fair Use Guideline

    And how many sales of Prince songs were generated by her use of the song. Any advertising is free advertising. The music industry should force Google to put a link to the song on the Play store and profit.

    I've bought plenty of stuff and even went to performances because stuff that came across Pandora. Remember the days bands had to pay MTV to play their videos? Now radio stations have to pay to play music. But if it weren't for the radio stations playing the music, we wouldn't know an artist...

    Uber Driver Threatens Cancer Patient

    Why would anyone use uber? Too much liability. If the driver gets in a wreck his insurance won't cover anything that happens to you because the driver probably doesn't have commercial insurance. Too many problems.

    Sprint to Turn Off WiMAX 4G in Nov. 2015

    Wimax was useless. The Evo 4G was my first smartphone. Wimax had awful coverage and practically no building penetration. And Sprint's 3G is like 1980s dial up using a 9600 baud modem. I left Sprint for Big Red as well. At least I get coverage and 4G LTE practically all the time.

    Glassholes Use Google to Destroy a Restaurant's Rating

    The bigger crime here is the article's author incorrect use of the word decimate. Think of the words decimal, December, decade. The restaurant's reputation was not reduced by 10%. Their reputation was devastated. The Glasshole should have looked this up for the uneducated author.
