    SpaceX Plans to Replace Long-Haul Flights with Rocket Travel

    Satellite launches are limited to 4 G. The Space Shuttle, when it was around was 3 G. Falcon 9 can hit up to 4.5 G, depending on payload. Untrained individuals black out around 3-5G without a g-suit. Course, like I said, just knock them out before launch. I think the problem could be the...

    Tesla Model Y Production Starts November 2019

    Second generation Nissan Leaf? Do you expect your Volvo not to last much longer? I'd assume a Volvo with regular maintenance could reach 300k miles.

    SpaceX Plans to Replace Long-Haul Flights with Rocket Travel

    What if they did it more like 5th Element style? Jam your ass in a pod, then knock you out with some gas.

    82% of American Teenagers Own an iPhone?

    And just about everything out on the net, phone just turns off from degraded battery. Sure, app crashes, reboots, and shutdowns are things that happen with Android phones, but never seen them due to degraded batteries. Not even my own Android phones have done such and that's pretty much all I've...

    Live - Zuckerberg Before Congress Pt 1

    Maybe you should look up quotes on "assuming things". Also, what data are they selling? Did they specifically say they were selling user data? As I said before, I'm sure they do allow 3rd parties to see data, based off user data, but not the user data itself. I'm sure they do all kinds of...

    82% of American Teenagers Own an iPhone?

    I bet you it probably didn't reboot, but just turned off. Then you'd turn it on. There is a difference between reboot and powered off. Majority of your Android devices simply turn off with a degraded battery. iPhone devices do pretty much exactly the same thing.

    Live - Zuckerberg Before Congress Pt 1

    I didn't say Facebook didn't screw up with their API. They massively screwed up and they are paying for it right now, but what you are stating is completely incorrect. It's also not splitting hairs. If I provide you a bar graph that says 5% Facebook users like yellow, 10% like blue, 50% like...

    82% of American Teenagers Own an iPhone?

    My guess is that's more due to iPhones all being flagship phones, while Android phones are a mix of low, mid, high, and flagship phones. You're more likely to get a new phone every year or sooner, if your phones only cost you $150. If I buy a $800-1000 phone, I'm going to use it as long as possible.

    Live - Zuckerberg Before Congress Pt 1

    Facebook collects the data, but they don't sell it. They sell access to information about the data they collected, but not the data itself. As in, they aren't going to give you everyone's data, but they might provide other information about those on their service. Like, 10% of our user base...

    82% of American Teenagers Own an iPhone?

    Yes and it does what? Turns off, cause it's a power loss situation. It's not going to bother randomly rebooting, unless there's some other cause that isn't battery related. It's just going to turn off, like it completely loss power.

    Sounds about right. I'm thinking some Tech websites will zero in on it, but most won't ever look at tech websites or even know of any tech websites. Maybe could show up on your larger, more known sites.

    I always hate these type of government "meetings". They could have easily sent him certified mail of what they want to ask and have him send back his responses via mail. Then publish the mail on their website for the public to view. Hell, make him send 2 responses. One less technical and one...

    82% of American Teenagers Own an iPhone?

    Huh? Do you even know anything about Android phones? There is a battery conserve mode that the phone will go into, unless you're literally at 0% at which point, it'll turn off. Guess what an iPhone will do at 0% battery? Same thing. Android phones don't randomly reboot from a degraded battery...

    Corsair Product Marketer Fired with Extreme Prejudice

    That's why I have lighting in my case. Instead of having a lamp turned on in my comp room, just have some lights in my case and have it act as the lamp. There's less eye strain, if the only thing lighting your room is the monitors. If you normally have your room lights turned on, then it's not a...

    Razer Launches Their Own Game Store

    That's how I feel. Since like what? 2011, the durability of their products have been trash. I stopped buying them about 2 years ago. Got a couple useless Blackwidow Ultimate keyboards and a couple mousepads. I should pull the keys off and toss the board, but I'm lazy. It's just a crappier...

    Gamers are Strong Candidates for Cybersecurity Jobs

    Luckily, contracting work for DoD is different. They'll provide funds to pay for education, but they'll usually require you to stay with the company for a year or more. That way they get their money's worth. They also pay for IT certifications, if you pass. They don't pay for study material to...

    Inside the Intel Lab That Put a Legit Gaming Desktop in the Palm of Your Hand

    The device does only cost $799 or $999. Granted, at those prices they don't run, as they still need memory, an SSD, and an OS. I also don't see how TechRadar makes it appear that they only cost $799 or $999, when they specifically state: Also Anandtech has things in their review sample that...

    Amazon Shares Fall After Report Trump Wants to Curb its Power

    I'd still purchase off Amazon if they had sales tax. Not like I'd have an option. I can't get everything locally. Computer parts, more audiophile grade headphones, performance aftermarket car parts, etc. Maybe if you live in a large city, but my hometown is 50k people. I can't even buy Philips...

Against desktop graphics, it was inbetween the GTX 960 and GTX 980. While against mobile, it was about the same as a GTX 970m. Also it's $1000. Depending...

    They pay taxes though. Don't tell me they didn't pay 2017 either, as those are currently deferred. As in, they're paying them. Just not right now, as they're waiting for the business tax break.

    Same thing we did, when I lived in Japan. Swap everything back to stock before inspection. Although, in Germany. If it wasn't stock, it was all documented in a logbook. If you got pulled over, they'd check your logbook to make sure everything is legit or they'd ticket you or tow your car.
