Very generally it seems to me that Sono are doing with hardware what Adobe have done with their software. Pay to play.
I use as little smart kit as possible. Seems to be less hassle.

Most, maybe all fly by wire accelerators have 2 'pots' with associated feedback. In Renaults the 'pots' read the opposite way around at the same time. So on pressing the accelerator ones resistances starts 'climbing' and the other ones starts 'falling'. If there's a mismatch in the expected values at the EMU a DTC is triggered.
As to the rest of the story maybe we'll find out eventually.
Amazing what people will do. Nice detective work.
It is sad that pets are only adopted by some because of their 'profile'. Apparently black cats aren't as adoptable because they're not as photogenic. One of our rescue cats has only one eye but doesn't miss a trick. Hence I call him a pirate.
If it hadn't been for those pesky kids.....
Once again it seems like a case of persecuting the wrong person. Stalin was being supplied with the raw decripts before they were filtered and fed to him through official channels. The leakage in SIS was incredible but various officials seem to have put far more effort into covering up their own inabilities than catching spy's. I'd recommend reading treachery by Chapman Pincher. I'd say he's got a definite bias but these are obvious and don't stop him contradicting existing mis-information.
You've got to be kidding, complaining that a city car hasn't got enough urge and that it's noisy. How about a review of a MX5 lamenting the lack boot space... The purpose of these cars is to cheaply transport you around the urban environment whilst keeping pollution levels down, neither power or weight (soundproofing) will help with this. My wife's had two 107s both faultless and a colleague's had three (all being faultless), to me they sound so good with their raspy bark it doesn't need silencing. If you want more performance use higher octane fuel, it makes a great deal of difference here on the hills. As for me I'll keep running around in my 23 year old XM.
Wind turbines can be taken down, nuclear reactors de-commissioned, etc. IF the use of fracking breaks into the water table/water course what technology will they use to seal off the water table and remove the pollution from the water? Surely if they are allowed to use such methods they must have a plan for when things go wrong? De-salination plants to replaced the lost 'fresh' water could be powered by the gas they've recovered.....
I just don't get it, what's the point? Most companys would/do screw you given the chance, you're a source of income and maybe word of mouth advertising, no more no less. They're a supplier so you buy the product that suits you in your price range. I've always been this way with possessions because that is all they are.
"leading to a serious release of core radioactives – though this has had basically zero effect on the world in general nor even much impact on the area around Chernobyl."
I wonder if the families of those who died of radiation sickness after the clean up would agree? Somehow I doubt it. What this shows to me is that not everything can be planned for. I'm not one for sensationalism but I wouldn't want to live near a nuclear reactor of any sort.
Age old problem, management not knowing arse from elbow and not taking heed of good practice/advice. Plus not wanting to upset users that want to browse the 'net, show off their photos to colleagues and/or to listen music. Oh yes and everyone's an expert with IT because they have a computer at home.
FAIL because they did.
