BMW considering dropping manual transmissions.

"From a technical standpoint [...] DCT and auto ’boxes are faster and they have better fuel consumption."

as much fun as it might be, you're not more efficient than a machine.

This is pretty random, and I'm pretty sure like 99% of you won't know what (or who) the hell I'm talking about.

But in a lot of ways, Brent Simmons is one of my personal heroes. For a lot of reasons that I won't bore you with.

Valve is officially doing refunds on Steam now.

maybe you played the title for an hour and just didn't like it

We do not consider it abuse to request a refund on a title that was purchased just before a sale and then immediately rebuying that title for the sale price.

So, now basically every gammon steam has a demo version. if you're willing to buy/refund. And you won't get screwed by buying a game the week before it goes on sale.
You can request a refund for nearly any purchase on Steam—for any reason. Maybe your PC doesn't meet the hardware requirements; maybe you bought a game by mistake; maybe you played the title for an hour and just didn't like it. It doesn't matter. Valve will, upon request via ...

That's right, it's probably impossible for a minimum wage worker to afford housing working a 40 hour work week.

Welcome to the 19th century, folks.
It highlights the mismatch between dipping job wages and soaring housing costs.

+Amie Harte​ one of my friends had those comebacks when I posted a similar article on Facebook.

I didn't call him an idiot.

Sometimes I think that all "Maybe" options should just be translated into "no" options by the software. I've never met anyone who said "maybe" and actually meant "yes".

And now for something completely different.

Population increased by 2 billion, and yet there are millions less hungry. Still far too many people left, but... it's not as if we're going down hill.
That's the good news. The bad news is that there are still 795 million people who don't get enough to eat — and enough nutrients in their food.

This is an interesting article, and really outlines the difference between Republicans and everyone else:

Most of us care about everyone, and believe the government (and by extension Congress) must serve and represent everyone living in this country, regardless of their status.

Republicans only care about their people. And by their, I mean white non-poor people.

And this is how Republican came to be a four letter word.
This week, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a lawsuit filed by conservative activists in Texas that could redefine the principle of "one person, one vote" as we know it. And if the Court sides with...

That moment when you stop taking anything someone says seriously, when you see this in their email:

Editor: Why […], did you just name drop?

Sorry, but excusing your own bragging by saying you were trying to leverage a logical fallacy makes me think you're full shit.

You can tell that most people who "make decisions" have no idea how things actually work because of dumb shit like the lack of a download link on youtube/vimeo videos.

download it when they had a crummy connection, and wanted the video buffered.

Yeah, my primary use case is that or offline viewing.

I definitely agree that there's not a huge need for it. But I dislike the notion that I shouldn't be allowed to watch that video without an active broadband connection.
