Re: The $139 Nokia 2.2 brings back the removable battery

This phone is perfect for the next glass body phone my wife destroys (they last at most 3 months). All she wants is web browsing, calls, and android auto functionality, and she's wiped out all my older phones already and is on the last S6

Re: Nat Geo: Missions to the Moon

If you have a VR headset and an hour and a half, checkout the Apollo 11 VR experience. You can just watch or do the interactive thing, but just watching/experiencing it is amazing.

Re: Cloud storage recommendations

I still just use Amazon S3 storage. Duplicati is free and supports it. Admittedly, I only have a couple TB, but it's like 5 bucks a month cause I have it on the long term object storage since it's strictly for a emergency that loses the important NAS data on both local backups.

Re: "Chappie" mini review

Watched it a while back when it first came out. It was OK. Not as good as District 9 I thought, but it was still a good time.

Re: YouTuber Simone Giertz transformed a Tesla Model 3 into a pickup truck

Yeah, watched her vid about it. Still very janky stage, but if she gets it all done cleanly and neatly, should be a fun ride.

Re: home prices

It's all about area desirability and cos of living. Sure, homes cost a mint in Cali, people also tend to make a lot more money out there as well, and more people wanna live there thanks to the stable weather. There's a reason a ton of crops come out of Cali. My old house was 1/4 the size of my place...

Re: Jon Stewart rips lawmakers for not showing up to 9/11 responders hearing

I love Stewarts passion for this, but they have had so may showings and this bullshit is still ongoing after 18 years, because asshats keep electing shitheads that put party above all else. If you think this getting passed means it's gonna happen? you haven't been following the last 10 or so years t...

Re: NWS -Bullets in Back Pocket after being hit with a Taser !!

Unless the both Taser prongs struck the bullet perfectly, the insulation from the clothes alone would prevent it. Besides, a bullet that fires not in a gun is just a tiny popcap firework with minimal force. That was clearly a gun going off. There is probably a youtube clip from when Mythbusters set ...

Re: NWS -Bullets in Back Pocket after being hit with a Taser !!

A taser cannot set off bullets in someones pocket. That was jerkwads finger spazzing out from the tazer, shooting his gun.

Re: Meet The New Mac Pro

Oh look, only took them 6 years to make a Mac you can actually do pro work with, without having to spread all your devices across a desk.

And the monitor stand is an affordable $999. What a STEAL.
