    Amazon blowing out pixel 2 and pixel 2 xl 12/17 only

    Agree fully anecdotal from my perspective. Buy a pixel for the software experience not for the hardware. My shitty hardware and warranty experience does not mean you'll have one. Odds are you'll get an acceptable phone if they properly refurbished them.....

    Intel is Allegedly Shipping 14nm Products With MRAM

    Everspin MRAM is asininely expensive. If Intel can drive prices down that would be great. In my applications we'd replace all our EEPROM with MRAM if the prices could even be in the same ballpark.

    VW Says Combustion Cars Will Fade Away after 2026

    It is going to need a ton of expansion on the transmission end. I'm not familiar with the distribution end to comment. Generally any capital expenses go into the rate base and up our rates, so fun fact....meeting demands of electric cars will make electricity more expensive.

    Consumer Reports Just Reversed its Stance on the Tesla Model 3

    If this was a simple problem chances are they didn't do enough validation up front. I tend to agree with the recent Ars article on this. I think they are using their easily update-able system as a reason cut cut corners on validation on the back end. I'm happy with over the air updates, but...

    Tesla Model 3 Outsells BMW and Mercedes Models

    You need to look at tablets and phones to use them well. Touchscreens may be easier to use when you are parked, but tactile buttons and knobs are easier to use and still look at the road. Since they already have the screen there, it is probably a cost reduction to just make it bigger and not...

    Is it Nvidia BS, probably......but the electronics supply market is a disaster right now. Shortages on everything seems like. Even commodity parts like FETs, Resistors, Ceramic caps, Diodes are doubling/tripling in lead time. Just had a gate driver go from 8 weeks to 48 weeks overnight.

    Solder joints can wear out due to CTE mismatch between the joint/part/PCB. Certain packages are way more susceptible to this than others (large non J leaded resistors/caps are terrible so are parts with alloy 42 lead frames). Time at temp will age solder and accelerate fatigue. BGA have...

    Lots of crosswalks near me are death traps. Feels like playing frogger when crossing. May as well not be there as all they do is give the pedestrian a false sense of safety. I can see why people jaywalk when they don’t feel safe in crosswalks or when crosswalks are stupid far apart. Worst...
