    If that screwdriver breaks in 10 years time, you get a brand new replacement with no arguments.
     
    Good tools are worth the money.

    If I saw -730,000 I'd be contacting the company involved, not topping myself. Must have been some underlying mental health issue for such a lack of rational thinking.

    Curious Pineapple got a reaction from thechinchinsong in Apple will announce move to ARM-based Macs later this month, says report   
    I bought 4 for my project car, from the factory they were designed to be cleared and reprogrammed for new immobilizers so that the customer wasn't forced to replace the entire lockset if the ECU failed. Also means the manufacturer doesn't have to replace the entire lock set if an ECU fails. I was at a scrap yard on Saturday, I could have removed any number of ECU's that could be easily fitted to other vehicles. There is a difference between not knowing how to do something, and not being able to shite design
     
    Sensors are cheap, very cheap, and if you swap them over from one car to another they still work. £25 for a brand new Alfa Romeo crank sensor, only failed sensor on a 19 year old car known for electrical failures. Timing belt was a £60 job with all genuine parts. I fried the airbag ECU with a dash swap, choppped the wiring from my donor car and spliced it in. Same bags, same wiring layout, same bolt holes. Things just fit and work. Parts in cars are used for several generations and across several manufacturers for cost savings. Control units may be paired together in most recent vehicles, but manufacturers still sell the data needed to run diagnostics and replace parts. That's part of the reason professional diagnostic gear costs thousands, it includes the cost of buying the diagnostic and repair information from every vehicle manufacturer.

    Curious Pineapple got a reaction from mr moose in Hey.com exec says Apple is acting like ‘gangsters,’ rejecting App Store updates and demanding cut of sales   
    What does copying games and trying to launch them have to do with being able to install and run an older application anyway? And which bad app stores? I have no issue with Epic or Steam, they don't drain any performance and I have an old machine. I have no issues installing and running Visual Studio 2003 by the way, works perfectly.
     
    You are the one that has turned it from installing older programs to trying to prove that copying an old application over without installing doesn't always work.

    And your point is? You have shown a load of screenshots of Windows displaying errors in the GUI and 1 each for Linux and Mac in the command line. Trying to make Windows out to be worse? One isn't even a Windows error, it's from EA, and another could simply be trying to run a 64 bit program on a 32 bit OS.
     
    They are exactly the same thing. What happens when a manufacturer makes a product obsolete and pushes new drivers through Windows updates that brick it? No doubt you just go out like a good little consumer and buy a new one instead of being able to use an older unsigned driver that actually works. Yes it happened, and yes I have to reinstall the old driver if I ever remove the device. PL2032 USB to UART converter, should I really be forced into a new one just because ther manufacturer says so? Considering how often you defend such practices I don't need an answer, I already know it.
     
    I'll stick to actually being able to compile code on one machine then run it over the network on another, and use odd drivers for obscure hardware thanks. I don't need to be wrapped in bubble wrap and have every aspect of my machine controlled by the manufacturer. I can handle the mammoth task of inserting more RAM myself

    You mean that £75 adaptor with a HDMI port in the middle of it? I'd say that is a HDMI adaptor, mainly as it adapts, to HDMI.
