Why isn’t the existence we have enough?

Scott Adams tweeted a few things today about the “Simulation” and the Metaverse. What in the human brain causes us to seek out a higher power? Simulation or Metaverse it’s all religion to me. If you believe in either of those you may as well believe in the Tooth...

How green is this EV?

Look at how fast this bus goes up in flames. Imagine if the battery was below the passenger deck. A lithium/ion battery made poorly is a bomb waiting to go off. Putting out that fire is not all that easy. I’m sure the fumes and smoke coming off that...

Windows 11 Widgets Won’t Work

Right outta the box! Well… more like right off the upgrade. I just installed the Windows 11 upgrade on my Dell XPS13 and took it for a test drive and right off the bat the Widgets pane won’t open. Yes, I rebooted. I don’t know if I’ll even use...

A regular person’s review of the Pixel 6

I wasn’t going to do it. But I did. I bit the bullet and purchased a Pixel 6 because the battery life on my Pixel 3 is getting to the point where I need to plug it in several times a day and the phone’s hardware feels like it’s...
