Why is it that emails from sites often come from a 'noreply' email address and say 'Do not reply to this email - it is not monitored'.

......Why not ???

Especially when the same site probably has a contactus email address and/or form, so are clearly able to handle incoming emails

If it were just stupidity, it'd be forgivable, but it is very purposeful.  I've even seen customer support trouble-ticket systems implementing this tactic - it is a sure sign that the site owners place an extremely low value upon what their audience has to say.

Regulatory Capture at Its Worst: NC Car Dealers vs. Tesla

I really like +Leilani Munter's takedown of the crazy North Carolina law protecting auto dealers from Tesla's direct-to-consumer business model.  I just bought a Model S, and the consumer experience is superb - far better than anything I've ever experienced at a dealer. 

For most Americans, the experience of going to buy a new car is about on par with going to the dentist. The Tesla experience is very similar to what you experience in an Apple Store: so much better than the normal retail experience.  Should there also have been laws to protect Circuit City and Best Buy from Apple's direct to consumer model?

A good reason, if any were needed, for a day out in the mountains

I'm wondering which would be the best MHL connector/cable for my Galaxy Nexus.

Maybe you could discuss your favorite MHL solution on the next AAA.

Which MHL connector is that on the TWiT set?

Interesting technique to allow a Win7 machine to be a temporary Wifi hotspot.
