I have a Prius, which obviously only comes in hybrid, so it doesn't make the list. But comparing it to the Camry, which costs about $2000 less but has a spread of a whopping 25 mpg when compared to the Prius (25 v. 50), I think it was a smart choice. Especially so for my wife and I, as we go on a LOT of road trips. » 8/25/14 9:39am 8/25/14 9:39am

While this is a morbidly fascinating thing to read, you should really take it down. Or, at the very least, remove the hyperlink to the Gofundme page. This story went up yesterday at 5PM, and you say it had $140k at that time. It's now just 8:30AM the next morning, and they're up to $208k. That's a nearly 50% spike… » 8/22/14 9:40am 8/22/14 9:40am

It is scummy, and, I think, counterproductive. Because the perception now is that you can't trust apps in Microsoft's Windows 8 Store, and, last I checked, that whole interface was supposed to be their flagship, their baby.

Would love to know if anyone knows a quick way to just restart explorer.exe in Windows 8. I don't know if others have experienced this, but I've tried the OS on multiple machines and keep running into the problem of the taskbar and Start (Modern/Metro) screen going completely insane, with graphics all over the place,… » 8/07/14 12:46pm 8/07/14 12:46pm

Love this thing, but the range isn't great, considering it's clearly designed to be used in a living room setup. My feet are constantly causing interference, when I have them propped up on the ottoman and have the keyboard in my lap. Only about 5 feet from the USB receiver. » 8/05/14 2:03pm 8/05/14 2:03pm

Personal experience and anecdotal evidence from the other comments here seem to support that you need two "Bill Haggle Days." One for the cable company, and one for everything else. I'd also recommend having some alcohol on hand to celebrate when you're done with your cable company "of choice." » 8/04/14 2:15pm 8/04/14 2:15pm

As a lefty, I'll say that those side back/forward buttons are a pain, even if the mouse is symmetrical in all other respects. I probably can't speak for all lefties with this, but I keep my index finger over the left button, and just reach over with that finger to hit the right-mouse button when needed. That leaves… » 6/30/14 9:51am 6/30/14 9:51am
