    Tesla Launches Cheaper Cars With Software Limited Batteries

    Makes perfect sense. 1. Say you pre-purchase at the slightly lower cost, if you ever want to enable the feature, they will charge more than that amount. Or say the next person, who buys it used, will want to enable it and pays the difference. They don't have to expend any maintenance costs...

    LG Demos Home Beer Brewing

    I can see people who homebrew, as an artisan hobby. But using an automated system? It seems like it would be too expensive, and you've removed the "fun" of creating it yourself. It's like taking away the joy of cruising by having a level 4 autonomous car, that costs a fortune.

    Spam Mail Still Number 1

    The problem is GMAIL is *too* strict. I can't tell you how often one of our clients complain that their customers aren't receiving their legitimate emails and ask what's wrong with our software. "Uh, no, you need to have GMAIL white list you."

    RAGE 2 Gameplay Trailer

    I know I'm in the minority, but I enjoyed Rage 1. I was scared away, by all the press. But picked it up, for a discount later.

    Logitech Mouse Sale at Amazon

    Yup. Love my 602, as well all-around (gaming and everyday use). I prefer the MX Mster, for work, exclusively.

    Anybody out There Still Listening to Music on AM or FM Radio?

    I used to Listen to Kevin Klein, on the radio. That was the only time I touched the radio band. When he was booted off, I went to just streaming music.

    Hunt Down the Freeman in 3 Weeks

    Maybe it's a cash grab. But unless it's really bad, I'll hop on.

    Tomb Raider Reboot First Official Trailer

    I'm on the fence. But super excited to see that Daniel Wu and Daniel Frost (both currently in Into the Baldands) are in it. I'm assuming the movie will have some impressive stunts, then.

    Report Claims 95% of Engineering Students in India Unfit for Software Development Jobs

    Absolutely in the same boat. We cut half of our engineering team and out-sourced to a large Indian firm, to take up the difference (as a cost cutting measure). Their work has been so abysmal that only the most rudimentary projects are handed off to them. That leaves a half strength US team...

    Mass Effect: Andromeda Pre-Loading Has Begun

    I keep wavering over deluxe vs base (pre-order), also. Not sure it's worth the extra.

    US Air Force Buying Special Drone-Snagging Shotgun Shells

    I guess it's better than buckshot (for safety). But I'm assuming this is anti-drone defense, in a warzone. so that wouldn't come into play. I'm not seeing the effective range of this net, either

    Wonder how this would run on a tablet (as there are no keys). I guess you could use an external keyboard.

    and of course they totally ignored that most Windows 10 users had to download VLC to regain the use of dvd playback (after it got stripped).
