Growing up in Europe, I was used to living on DST in winter and DDST in summer, so I'd hate to be stuck with standard time forever.

OK, now I have no reason to not set up Drive for backups.

Travel pro tip: be the only non-EU passport holder on your flight, get through immigration in 2 minutes.

Even better: have dual US/EI citizenship, and just use whichever line is faster on a given day. :-)

Could be that they both had the same love of toys, but, the attention to detail is the impressive thing.

During World War II, nearly 500,000 Purple Heart medals were manufactured in anticipation of the estimated casualties resulting from the planned Allied invasion of Japan. To the present date, total combined American military casualties of the sixty-five years following the end of World War II—including the Korean and Vietnam Wars—have not exceeded that number. In 2003, there remained 120,000 Purple Heart medals in stock.

I shouldn't have to threaten to leave my TV provider (+Verizon FiOS) to get a replacement remote from them after years of paying $2000 a year, but apparently that's the only thing that works.

Thanks, but a minute of my time typing over the course of ~10 minutes with the rep on the IM session got one shipped.

Idiotic, though I can't say I'm surprised at anything the Christie administration will do now.
Tesla was dealt a crushing blow in New Jersey today after the state's Motor Vehicle Commission passed a rule that will prevent the company from selling its electric cars directly to consumers...

"Slow but free" beats "so outrageously expensive that I sure hope that the no-data setting actually works"

"There is a larger lesson in this story: When telecom companies control specific protocols on their lines — whether it’s texting, voice calls or even cable TV — customers lose out. And as soon as our devices get access to the open Internet, we have a bounty of competitive choices that reduce prices and improve service. What happened to texts is likely to happen to voice calls, too, in a few years’ time. Because of competition from FaceTime Audio, Google Hangouts, Skype and lots and lots of other Internet-phone services, few of us will worry about voice minutes anymore; for some, that might even be true today. And perhaps the SMS story will play out on TV, too. Cable is expensive and inflexible. Internet-based alternatives like Netflix and YouTube are cheap and available everywhere. *In the long run, there is only one way that story ends.* "

Delivery to the home is still an issue no matter what service you use when it gets there...Netflicks, Hulu, or whatever.  WHO pays for the pipe and does paying for it also provide neutrality in using it?  Netflicks is now paying Comcast to not throttle down households that stream NF, rather than watch Comcast on demand.   Net Neutrality is a dream that is lost given the strength of Comcast lobbyist in Washington.   The Comcast/Time Warner purchase is going to be a disaster for consumers.

While the food was good we had a poor experience tonight (a Saturday night). We made reservations for 6pm. The restaurant was busy and we were seated almost directly on top of the table next to us, probably one too many tables in the middle of the restaurant. While the food was OK, as soon as the check was delivered the waiter informed us that his manager said that they needed the table and asked us to leave. At 7:45pm. Under two hours and you're forcing guests out? That little extra time we may have sat talking to our friends over our coffee gone cost a return customer. Good work.
