Plus, you have more of a feeling of 'ownership' when using your own electricity in your own garage in your own house. Some people are clearly right for a Tesla and some are wrong. Some will have to use a cost spreadsheet, which is fine. But others of us go on a lot of emotion that owning this car and experiencing it… » 3/19/15 8:40pm 3/19/15 8:40pm

I pass on all my old computers except for a couple. I can never give up my 20th Anniversary Macintosh, along with my Cube and one obscure laptop that fit into my classes well, despite there being little memorable about it. As for the TAM, I upgraded the 4 MB HD to 8 MB and it would totally fail. It might operate for a… » 3/18/15 7:30pm 3/18/15 7:30pm

It's not about net neutrality. Due to popular sentiment, even the Republicans are trying to pass bills regarding the narrow category of net neutrality. It's about oversight of bad behavior on the part of the carriers, including activities on their part that might be unconstitutional. That's why the Republicans don't… » 2/26/15 8:13am 2/26/15 8:13am

Is "at least an Oscar" a reference to a Nobel Peace Prize? Frankly, I did not think this movie was the quality of documentary that some of Michael Moore's, and others', were. But it was probably the best documentary this year, in terms of content. I saw this film as dealing with the aspects of how things unfolded and… » 2/23/15 4:59am 2/23/15 4:59am

Others are dependent on masters. We see ourselves as the masters. Yet every step we have taken to build machines and computers to take care of our needs will never be backed up on. We'll never tear down factories or robots that make our products. We'll never give up our mobile or internet or computer tools. The… » 2/19/15 6:30pm 2/19/15 6:30pm

I hope that this movie has a good script. It does have great actors. I do not want to see the script or participate closely, because a principle like myself could reasonably make things difficult for the producers. I'm not that type but some could be. At least Seth's fly is closed. » 2/02/15 2:52pm 2/02/15 2:52pm

Try You can send and receive faxes on your computer. Use a PDF editor like PDFPenPro to complete faxes you receive and add signatures, then fax it back. Some of the world still demands this. In fact, a local phone company / ISP couldn't verify me at my non-working land-line number so I had to fax them… » 1/28/15 5:50pm 1/28/15 5:50pm

As a user, it would be nice to have an option. Either this app can ALWAYS access and modify my contacts, or this app WILL ASK FOR PERMISSION when it does so. I would also like a way to see a complete log of exactly what each app accessed, and when, of this 'private' data. » 1/27/15 8:59pm 1/27/15 8:59pm

The big ISP's are the regulators of we people. What you call regulation is actually government keeping use from being regulated. It's like the bill of rights, which specify that the big gorilla (government) shalt not do certain bad things. Government control of such things can be debated but privatization fails the… » 1/16/15 9:23pm 1/16/15 9:23pm
