Yes. What about people who have to pay someone to tell them to throw away stuff they don't use? What does it say about them?

I guess these are the same people who pay people to show them how to exercise

Posted in: Toyota speeds up electric vehicle schedule as demand heats up See in context

Toyota has long resisted the battery EV to develop an alternative Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle. It has cost billions of $ and put Toyota at the back of the EV pack. I think they've sold less than 10,000 Mirai worldwide and last year they sold about 30,000 Prius Prime plug in hybrids in USA alone

This is interesting but I wish more background was provided here. Are automated baggage loading systems used anywhere else? What is the benefit of remote pushback trucks?

Half a percent increase every 6 or 9 months or just reduce to 9 % would have less shock

Vancouver Olympic Village had trouble completing during the financial crisis before 2010 but it is still a popular and growing area, helped by a waterfront vibe.

Posted in: Google brings camera twists, bigger screens to Pixel phones See in context

I had a Pixel. Loved the OLED screen and great camera but bootloop bricked it. So I've had 2 Samsungs since and while the duplicate apps are annoying, its ok with 64Gb . So far (after 4 yrs) I only use Bixby for the morning alarm. I also don't use Google Voice or Siri. I lol at people trying to talk to the phone (although voice control might be best for driving_)

I have S7 Edge and S8 and the SD Card is a great feature. Speed is no issue but not all apps can be moved to SD Card. But Samsung apps cant be deleted from the unit. But still very useful for all vids, pics and most games and apps. Also Bixby button can be turned off so irrelevant
