This is a great example of how marketing and focus groups end up taking an otherwise good opportunity and making it tone deaf. He's Captain America, not Captain International Cool Stuff. He'd want to know about stuff that happened in his own country. He probably wouldn't really be interested in stuff from other… » 4/12/14 8:26am Saturday 8:26am

How about one of the biggest and most-used websites in the world learns how to use adaptive / responsive design techniques to shape itself to the equipment its users have instead of being all lowest-common-denominator? I mean, we do live in the future and all. They have $bns to buy little companies and do whatever with … » 3/30/14 10:51am 3/30/14 10:51am

Car manufacturers are making it harder to install them by going with custom sized screens and bezels instead of a DIN or double-DIN layout. Many factory systems have integrated climate and driving controls that… » 3/10/14 3:16pm 3/10/14 3:16pm

What makes a car feel fast is power:weight. There was a Jalopnik article on here not long ago about how the new Koenigsegg One 1 has such a batshit p:w ratio, and then listing several other cars and how much power they'd have to add or weight they'd have to lose to achieve it.

"Technically" if slowing down to the speed limit makes it so that you can no longer pass the person you were trying to pass, you shouldn't have been trying to pass them because they are going the speed limit. Whatever ticket you get for that is deserved, but could range from 'speeding' (if the officer saw you trying to… » 2/27/14 4:52am 2/27/14 4:52am
