Re: I hope that BB wins

Just wonderin', how could anyone "post shit about [you]" if you're anonymous? No one would know about whom to post.

Oddly enough, when a Tesla accelerates at a barrier, someone dies: Autopilot report lands

I'm 73 and receive a government pension, though I still have to work too. I read The Reg every day between sessions of designing machinery in Autodesk Fusion 360, building and programming projects for my Arduino boards, learning to play guitar, and riding too fast on my BMW K1200R. Though from your remark, I'm pretty sure that by pension age, you'll be too addled to comprehend The Reg, I'm not, and neither are a lot of other Reg readers. Stifle your ageist remarks. Sooner or later you'll be talking about yourself.

Re: Pathetic countries with no independence

His crime was attacking American e-mail accounts, not Canadian. I don't know, but it's quite possible that doing that is not a crime in Canada. It makes more sense to prosecute this criminal in the country that was the victim of his crimes.

A big part of the problem here, seems to be that these retailers are using "PoS terminals". Maybe they should spend more money andto buy terminals that aren't pieces of shit.

And you didn't hear him coming because it's electric. Right??

I've been riding high-performance motorcycles for 53 years (current ride: BMW K1200R), and have done well over a million miles. While I'm a big music fan, I don't have any real desire to listen to music while I ride, but I don't think that music at reasonable volumes is "distracting". I do value the intercom function, especially with my passenger (I hardly ever ride in groups). The vocal GPS guidance is very useful and reduces distraction, especially when navigating a complex route in heavy traffic.

Having the phone available is, for me, an essential function. Aside from the possibility of falling off (pretty much avoided that for all those 53 years, touch wood), as a certified old-fart, I have to consider the possibility of confronting a "medical emergency". I don't like the thought of me lying in a ditch somewhere, being unable to call for help or to let rescuers know where I am.

One question I have regarding this review: What in Hell is the point of wearing "cumbersome" armored gloves and an f'n tank-top for Chrisake?!?!? Geez man. Give your head a shake!

Longest street in the world?? - - I think not!

"...approximately 200 kilometres to the west of Mount Isa and its main street is actually the highway, making it the longest street in the world,” PIFFLE!!!

Younge Street, running north from the shore of Lake Ontario, through Toronto and into Northern Ontario is 1,896km long. For the apparantly maths-challenged in that little town in Aus: 1,896>200

Wouldn't that transparent lid be made of Perspex, not Plexiglas?

Eight... Rugged Cameras

Where's the Hero2 HD?

http://www.reghardware.com/Design/graphics/icons/comment/fail_32.pngSeems to me that any round-up of ruggedized digital cameras is just a little silly without inclusion of the Hero2. That camera is pretty much the defacto standard for use by skiers, motocrossers, car racers, BMXers, rock climbers, snow & skate boarders, snorklers, sky divers, 200mph motorcycle motorway nutjobs, etc., etc.

It's like a fondleslab roundup without an iPad.

Reg hacks confront really wide Oz load terror

We shut down roads for really IMPORTANT over-wide loads.

Those Aussies shut down roads for piddly little things like houses.

When we shut down a road here in Canuckistan, it's for something really important: BEER VATS!!!
