    Is there any land mass to Jupiter or is it entirely made of gas? If there is land. Does the red spot move about the planet or is it always in one place?

I saw the wireless charger on here a month ago. It's not as fancy and it took a month to get but i'm happy with it.

    Let's be clear about something here, though:

    Stone never made a good wheel. The only time you would form a stone into that shape is to use as a grind-stone in a mill.

    Wooden wheels would have been far more lightweight, effective, and easily constructed.

    He’s got a point. The touch screen in my car is a huge pain in the ass. Turning the radio down is like trying to play angry birds. If I want to turn on the radio, I have to wait 15 seconds for everything to boot up. I fucking hate it. Not to mention my rear camera completely takes over the car when I’m in reverse. I can’t control anything.

    I was so much happier when I had my iPhone and my car had actual buttons to push.

    The opposite is true for PCs

    90s motherboards, CPUs, CD-ROM drives, RAM, everything was a nightmare to get working and crashed all the time. Plus you often still had to deal with floppies for drivers, not to mention using them for turning in term papers.

    Windows went through a few piece of shit stages as well. Videos were difficult to play if you could even get access to them.

    Everything cost an arm and a leg and became obsolete frequently.

    Compare that to now where I have a core i7 cpu from like 6 years ago that is still fast and works great. On my MOBO that detected and configured everything automatically. And my copy of windows that updates automatically and never crashes. And I haven’t had a problem with viruses for 10+ years. Even my dated graphics card works on pretty much everything

    A loud clatter of gunk music flooded through the Heart of Gold cabin as Zaphod searched the sub-etha radio wavebands for news of himself. The machine was rather difficult to operate. For years radios had been operated by means of pressing buttons and turning dials; then as the technology became more sophisticated the controls were made touch-sensitive --- you merely had to brush the panels with your fingers; now all you had to do was wave your hand in the general direction of the components and hope. It saved a lot of muscular expenditure of course, but meant that you had to sit infuriatingly still if you wanted to keep listening to the same programme.

    He's calling out a real change in technology from Mechanical switching to electronic switching. The reason things always worked back in the day is because they were designed for very specific functions, and that's all they did. Like the thermostat knew what temp it was, and whether it needed to kick on your heat. The new thermostat knows what time of day it is, whether the sun is shining, the equinox of the sun, etc, and it uses all that info to decide whether or not to turn your heat on...

    Why didn’t he write this on 158,000 pieces of paper and mail each one to an approving fan?

    I'm with Cap here. My daily is a 2002 corolla with a 3.5mm port, a volume knob, and an amp for a head unit. I'll take the simplicity of my old car over any of the distracting unresponsive touch screen crap that cars have now.

    He's calling out a real change in technology from Mechanical switching to electronic switching. The reason things always worked back in the day is because they were designed for very specific functions, and that's all they did. Like the thermostat knew what temp it was, and whether it needed to kick on your heat. The new thermostat knows what time of day it is, whether the sun is shining, the equinox of the sun, etc, and it uses all that info to decide whether or not to turn your heat on...

    This is just an artist representation, the artist being the satellite. The earth is flat. Wake up sheeple.
