There's a free program called "foldersize" which fixes this.

"This is the worry I have with EV's that can be pwned remotely."
Exactly right. Tesla can unlock my car remotely (and a service technician did once use this functionality to get into my parked car when I was not there).
What if Tesla got hacked? thousands - nay millions - of them could be stolen or held for ransom.
"Using CRISPR on humans, meanwhile, is a topic that divides the scientific community. Although it could prevent genetic diseases by cutting away unwanted genetic mutations, the ethics of using embryos for experiments is questionable."
It really doesn't divide the scientific community. The vast majority of scientists think that CRISPR is not yet ready to use on people. And that has a lot more to do with it being a heritable modification (and therefore a permanent change to the genetic pool) than any queasiness over experimenting with embyros (which is something that many scientists do every day with embryonic stem calls).
The inspectors are not contractors - they are Boeing employees. That is how the system has always worked - but with one not so minor change. Originally these inspectors reported direct to the FAA, then a change was made so that they reported through Boeing's pointy-haired managers.
Given this knowledge, I think the outcome was less than surprising.
There is no fee for withdrawing cash. However "Interest charges apply to cash you take out, from the day the cash is withdrawn."
And the rate is 20% pa (or even 28% if you are deemed a not-so-good credit risk).
So if you withdraw , say, $1,000 at the beginning of a billing period, that could amount to $30.
However, if they allow a positive balance on the card, you could work around that.
I had a wasp's nest hanging from the inside of the roof of my house. My Dad placed a bucket of water underneath it and hit the nest with a big stick.
It dropped in the water, and he covered it with a lid. Job done!
Another time in the same house, I had a wasp's nest underneath my bath, accessed via a gap in the wall where the drain exited. I had to get the pros in for that one.
"Additionally, Autopilot works well. I should know, having covered thousands of tedious traffic-laden motorway miles with it."
Have you got autopilot V1 or V2? My V1 works well, but everyone I know who has V2 complains about it.
Shame they had to ditch V1 after Mobileye dumped Tesla for taking too many risks.
The Register is normally good at covering tech stories, but they have screwed up royally here.
As others have alluded to, this invention is about diodes, not batteries. It lowers the power consumption of any electronic device that uses diodes, and hence lengthens battery life if that device is baterry-powered.
Look at the press release:
El Reg missed an important part of the quote therein:
"Semiconductor diodes and amplifiers, which often are made of silicon or germanium, are key elements in modern electronic devices"
