  1. 1:05 The power for the fans goes 99.99% to heat as well. Friction of the fan blades contacting the air goes to heat as well as the heat generated within the fan motor. LEDs too! The light radiation goes to heat as well. I'm surprised not enough research was put into this.. That radiator sure looks familiar. Oh, derp, because it's an old video that popped up on my recommended list ha 4:40 Um, that's not Gordon Freeman with a crowbar, that is soldier Adrian Shepard with a Crescent wrench.
  2. What about the feature to limit battery charging to a certain percentage to increase longevity? I thought that was a feature, and also coming to iOS 13.
  3. Aptera is a light weight vehicle but does have a front crumple zone, multiple air bags and the shell is strong. 1800 pounds at 60KWh capacity level is light weight for sure. Around the weight of a Smart car. There was some video online of a fork lift running into an empty chassis against a concrete wall, I can't find it anymore.
  4. Umm, this is surprising. This is a tech site. With your idea, how does an electric car drive around in the city without dangerously accelerating every time? Transmission in regular cars is there because Internal Combustion Engines have severe HP/torque curves. Just watch these videos.
  5. Government requirement is just to motorcycle safety but Aptera will test to automotive safety. Physical mirrors, not sure if required for motorcycles still, not sure. If you look in the picture, battery is under the floor and curves with the body to behind the seat, depending on KWh battery pack sizing you order. Storage is behind the seat, It has a hatch. No frunk. If I ever buy one I'll test it on the ice / light snow in an empty parking lot with dashcam video. Wheel skirts need to not go as low, shouldn't be lower than the typical small car's front bumper IMO. Ho ho ho. It's a 3D render of a prototype. They are raising money to make prototypes. Lots of room for changes/improvements.
  6. Wheel skirts are removable. In-hub motors with software for traction/stability control. The form it has is to function as a very aerodynamic vehicle. Prototype render not final product. Original car could do 0.8g turning
  7. The cool 3-wheeled Aptera prototype was seen in Star Trek 2009. Shaped similarly to an airplane with electric FWD. Jay Leno reviewed it on his Youtube. But, they ran out of money and it died. But recently announced the original creators, Steve Fambro and Chris Anthony have gotten rights to the Intellectual Property again and working on making a prototype now with AWD, LED lighting all around, autopilot tech and more. Let's hope it becomes a reality. Over twice the efficiency of a Model 3 with 0-60 in 4 seconds or less. https://www.greencarreports.com/news/1124775_1-000-mile-electric-car-unveiled-aptera-returns-10-years-later https://www.aptera.us/ Many videos of the original Aptera prototype at www.youtube.com/danwat1234 and www.youtube.com/aptera321 Pics of the car in Star Trek 2009; https://www.imcdb.org/v302430.html
  8. Registry key modification will stop Win10 from updating? Seems way to easy. The tutorials I see online can delay rebooting or ask before downloading/installing but not disable it completely. Most of the Youtube comments on the tutorial videos don't give confidence. Maybe it can that would be most convenient. But killing permissions to Windows Update is a confident way and really not much work to re-enable. I've heard of that program, added it to my arsenal.

  10. Very simple to disable Windows Updates. First go to Services and shut off Windows Update and disable it. Refresh Services to make sure it isn't running. Now navigate to \windows\system32\ and find files wuaueng.dll and wuauclt.exe. If you can find the former, then look for wuauserv.dll. For each, go to properties, security, advanced. Click change owner and type in your user name, Click Check Names to select your user name and Click ok. Then Click Apply or Ok on the main window and close it and reopen it. Now, you can change permissions for all users. Delete/Remove permissions from all users and Click Ok. If that doesn't work, then change owner to Administrator, close the window and try again. That's it. To re-enable, add "Read/Execute" permissions to System on wuaueng.dll or whichever dll you have. Doesn't need it on wuauclt.exe for some reason. This method should always work, unless somehow those files get replaced. Take that Microsoft!

  12. So we can see the voltage of the CPU within MacOS but can't modify. Would be interesting to map out the frequency-voltage table and see if it can be used on other laptops.
  13. 0:50 the 2019 MBP is definitely faster than your 2011! I really enjoyed this video. It is amazing what Intel & Apple has done. I have seen in other videos that it appears that the CPU power usage/heat output isn't much more than the 6-core in the 2018 MBP. Further 14nm optimizations, more undervolting? If the MBP in iOS undervolts the CPU reliably, are they using specially binned CPUs? Can we find the table and use the same frequency <-> voltage levels in Windows and possibly in other laptops with some tweaks? Utilities in iOS to show voltages?
  14. The phone is always on (not sleeping) when the screen is on, although it is very energy inefficient and if it's in your pocket, touch inputs can mess things up. BTW daytime running lights on many vehicles is high beam at reduced brightness.
  15. Linus mentioned 'always-on support', as in being able to disable the screen-off timer? Download and use the No Screen Off app.
