General Motors charges mandatory $1,500 fee for three years of optional car features
Re: Other car manufacturers are available.
I have never understand the "American" way of treating service staff.
1. ALL staff should be paid AT LEAST Minimum wage.
2. Staff cannot be charged for other things (Cloths etc) to get back some of this money.
3. In my eyes Tips are NOT Mandatory they are discretionary and only should be paid if the CUSTOMER wants to.
I live in the UK and tipping is becoming more common. But as far as i am concerned, It is something I Choose to do. No way would i tip unless I WANT to and i think the staff serve it.
The staff should be paid a proper living wage by their employer. I have visited America once and I liked it but would i live there? No thanks,
A healthcare system designed for the wealthy, a system where it is common for people to become bancrupt trying to pay for medical bills. Guns so common that having hundreds of people every week killed by them is thought of as common (and good).

And I have to say that most of it seems designed to bugger up the country. Why should different states have different election laws. You could end up with some states banning non whites from voting whilst other states think it is ok.
And although this is said in jest the fact is that some states are getting close to that. (whatever they profress to say)

Re: The right to tell you what to do
As a UK citizen, the idea that each state has incompatible laws is just STUPID. Not so easy to move house if your state brings in some law that you do not like.
Why would you think it is OK for each state to have election laws that are so different that it appears to be more like a foreign country

pledge to double our commitment to making schools secure.
I.e. do double of NOTHING. America is a violent country, one of the most violent in the world and too many people in America think that more guns are the answer.
I know, why not give guns to people as they enter supermarkets and children as then enter school. No age checks, no health checks, no background checks. Just give everyone Automatic firearms with large magazine and armour piercing bullets. After all, what can go wrong? "It's not guns that kill, just people".
And this is one of the reasons that i might never visit America again, too many of you appear to be gun wackoos.
Linus Torvalds debuts 'boring old plain' Linux kernel 5.18

Nothing about windows 11 makes it remotely interesting to me.
The fact the Microsoft keep trying to shove a "microsoft" account down my throat just makes it 10 times worse.
Microsoft are just "playing their violin whilst Rome burns" and amount of "innovation" in new versions of windows could be written on the back of a postage stamp. With continual re-writes of the UI for no other reason that "Because we can" tells me all I need to know.

Re: "be less strict in content moderation"
Is "The 2020 US presidential election has so many irregularities that it warrants a full investigation to identify any fraud!" a lie!? Can you or anyone "prove" that the election was 100% fair and secure? (Saying "there was no evidence" is not proof!)
Negative proof of election fraud means just what it says. There was no major election fraud found (except by some Republicans) A negative does not prove a positive.Otherwise, you are saying. I cannot prove he is lying but I have not exhausted all the possible forms of torture on this person. therefore, he MUST be lying!
America seems to be filled with lots of people with poor intelect and poor reasoning.

Reg reader rages over Virgin Media's email password policy
Re: Something's not right here
What i find unacceptable is that many password managers store your passwords on their systems. This allows you to use multiple systems with a single password manager but then increases the risk of compromise because the passwords are NOT in your control, you have no idea who can access the password data remotely and you have to blindly accept their assurances about how secure they are storing (and transmitting) the password data..
For me a password manager should ONLY store passwords locally and encrypted.

Re: 'F' that for a game of 'where's my directorship'?
As i basically do NOT use social media It will not affect me. What annoys me is EVERY site wanting me to login to access, this is getting me p***sed off.
Having to remember possible multiple tens or even hundreds of user id and passwords is just mad...

Having to upgrade continuously to new versions of visual studio plus also other tools it soon becomes a real pain to co-ordinate and keep up to date.

Here, here. Have just retired (at 62) and I am glad I am off that treadmill.
One house back in the office (after working over a year from home) and I had decided that I have had enough.
My wife and I both sent our notices in that month. I was 62 1/2 and my wife 61.
Now every day is a "Saturday".
Re: A timely reminder
Unfortunately, it does not matter how much money is spent on Public (or private) health. It will never be enough. I hate to say it but that means that some treatments will either be not available or very expensive.
I am just glad I am NOT American, a more broken healthcare system you are unlikely to find.
Where you get private hospitals shipping patients by taxi to public hospitals and dumping them outside (In hospital garments) to save themselves money.
Obviously in Private hospitals, patients are just a cashpoint for the hospitals. Be sure to have your credit card handy when you go through the door!

How to get banned from social media without posting a thing
I love your column,
I do have a twitter account, had to set it up about 6 or 7 years ago to get support for some software. Never used it since, do not know what user/password i logged in with.
I use WhatsApp to talk to my sons, nothing else. i.e. i have used it about a dozen times in all.
I do have a facebook account, again no idea of the user or password, have not used it in at least 5 years, cannot see the point.

Giant Japanese corporations to launch bank-backed digital currency
Aside from criminals and the tinfoil brigade I do not see a compelling reason for using crypto currencies. They all seem very fragile, the value of any "coin" seems to move around so much how can you know what you are paying.
Eventually they all have to resolve to a normal currency, just more complication.

Re: a home NAS
The biggest problem with home built NAS are that they mainly just support Raid 5, i.e. ALL drives HAVE to be the same size or the raid uses the smallest drive size as the std.
For a home user who has a lot of various size drives it just does not make sense. That is why i went with a synology. If you are happy purchasing your drives by the dozen then go ahead.

IBM US staff must be fully vaccinated by December – or go back to bed without pay
Read the news (not fox), The vaccination means you are a lot less likely to catch covid, and if you do the effects will be a lot milder. Duhhhhh
Nothing is 100% effective. The later variants of COVID are much easier to catch so the vaccine is even more important.
If you do not want the vaccine, then PLEASE stay in your home. do not leave so that you can keep other people safe.
Why would anyone refuse the vaccine. By refusing the vaccine you are increasing the risk of spreading COVID to other people. I do not care if you are happy to get COVID. It is the people around you.
Why would i want to go to a hospital where staff were NOT vaccinated for COVID? Or any other place?
