Marlboro Race CarMay 17, 2010

In the three years I’ve been watching Formula One, I have never made any association between the barcode and the design of a cigarette pack. Have they uncovered a great subliminal story, or are they just making connections and assumptions that just aren’t there?

Digital Card ReadersMar 5, 2010

Elmak said on March 5, 2010:What card reader do you use for Compact Flash? I’ve been looking for a decent one that isn’t horridly expensive. So many of them are either too cheap in quality, or too expensive in price.I don’t know how it works for speed (my picture files just aren’t that big), but this combo reader has served my needs well for quite a while. The only tip is to put a hard drive in it and leave it. (There are either 8 or 12 screws needed to put the thing together.)

The Lost Symbol, Christians ThreadFeb 17, 2010

Despite the negative reviews, I would recommend God’s Debris as a book on religion. I found it to be very interesting take on what we believe. (Of course, I got it back when it was offered as a free download, so I haven’t been biased by actually having to pay for it.)

If you have absolutely no need to access your mail when you are away from your computer, use a single mail client to check your mail, and have good backups of your main machine, then there is no reason to switch.

I check mine through webmail half the day, and have flitted between OSX mail and Thunderbird for a while, so I use IMAP.

Apple Refusing to Fix Computers of SmokersNov 24, 2009

The complaint is not that it is a limited warranty, but that there is no limitation specific to smoking in the warranty, ergo it should be covered.

Regarding your second bullet point, I am sure if you look at the warranty contract, there is a specific limitation on liquid ingestion, making the point invalid.

Wisdom Teeth RemovalSep 21, 2009

Erik J. Barzeski said on September 21, 2009:I’m not sure what "cracking" would need to be done – that sounds like the stuff they have to do for impacted and/or non-erupted teeth.When I had mine removed they pushed from one side till it broke loose, then pushed from the other side, then pulled it out with pliers. There was a definite crack when they pushed from either side. No pain, just some pressure and a crack.

Of course, YMMV.

Super Mario Brothers WiiAug 24, 2009

I am so happy to see demo play coming. I put down The Simpsons Game at the end of the second level because I couldn’t figure out how (even with instructions) to get to the last guy. It’s just frustrating.

Describe Your Terminal UsageAug 4, 2009

I open one (with a open terminal here script from the Finder) when ever I need one, which is usually about every couple weeks or so. Last thing I did was use it to test an AppleScript for using curl to add a torrent file to my ReadyNAS. I hadn’t used it much before that since I got the python script runner to work from the Finder.

Six tips for going paperlessApr 30, 2009

@Luisa: Unless space is a horribly tight, finding a good high-end scanner (like the SnapScan, which does everything you want) and a good separate printer would be best. You may even be able to set up the scanner software to have a scan-to-printer function so it works like a copier.

Safari 4’s Top TabsMar 27, 2009

I really liked the new tabs, but then Safari 4 went *really* unstable, so I uninstalled it. I definitely liked the speed though.

A Bizarre Birthday PresentMar 25, 2009

After spending 6 years living a thousand miles from our parents, we couldn’t see moving back to the same city, so we moved back and kept a 100 mile buffer. Long enough to keep them from showing up unexpectedly, short enough to visit whenever we want. A few hours away can be a good thing.

With anything free, you get what you pay for. If you want it now, pay for better shipping.

Do Electricity Monitors Like The "Kill A Watt" Really Work? [Energy]Mar 18, 2009

As a journalism website, is it too much to ask that Consumerist actually summarize the article (or video) that is being linked to? Like "Yes, these devices are accurate. See the video for even more energy saving tips."
