I heard about a man charging his EV (electric vehicle) for 10 hours, and it only reaching 20% power. Whether you are an EV fan, opponent, or indifferent either way, you’d have to admit that is a sad display of inefficiency.
I don’t know what caused the issue, but it’s not the first concerning thing I’ve heard about EV’s in general.
Am I discouraging the use of EV’s? You may wonder. I’d simply advise people weigh the pros and cons, research for themselves.
I recently came across the coolest mobility vehicle I’ve ever seen to date. It’s described in advertisements and such as a self balancing electric lounge chair on wheels. I’ve seen it demonstrated in videos, it is easily controlled with a simple joy stick, or alternately with a tablet.
I have no idea on the pricing, and that’s a definite concern.
I’m still trying to research that.
What I like BEST about it, is while it’s ideal for the mobility challenged like me, really ANYONE could use it. If I had one, my son could borrow it to drive around his school campus if he didn’t want to wear himself out walking. It goes up to 24 mph.
So, as some of you may recall, toward the end of my son’s school year, he had a concert. I had planned on getting around to uploading pics & video from that event, finally. Sadly, I was informed today that the stuff got deleted. I am really wishing now they had been backed up.
As much as tech has benefited our society, it’s not immune to human error, and unfortunately there’s no way now to remedy the loss.
As the title here says, the crazy on Tik Tok is thick. Some of the things I’ve stumbled across on there are SO FAR out of touch w/rationality that it’s laughable. The platform does still have value, but it’s important to “separate the wheat from the chaff” so to speak.
WHAT a person is known and stands for matters, some people are so hungry just to be known for SOMETHING they never stop to think about what they are actually putting out onto the platform & into the world. I advise they do stop and think about it.
Social media of any sort can be a wonderful tool when used wisely, but when it’s not, that can have very bad results.
I have read that some mega tech companies want to completely eradicate the dependence on passwords. Preferring instead to use other methods to authenticate user identities. I get it (to some extent) passwords can be a pain sometimes, but there are major issues w/some other methods of authentication as well.
It may seem like I write a lot about Elon, but I recently learned something I had to comment on.
It sounds significantly like science fiction (and likely is) but Elon believes people may eventually be able to download their memories & personalities into androids, according to a post I read earlier.
Kudos to him for MORE big thinking, as he’s famed for, outlandish as this particular idea sounds.
I was looking into new graphic design software, and one thing I was checking out, it turned out I’d need an $80 annual subscription for. I’m just not willing to pay that for the particular product.
I think the money I’ll save NOT buying it will be better spent on more important things. If I could purchase the software OUTRIGHT for a one off payment of ONLY $80, (instead of $80 yearly) that’d be a vastly different, and better deal, and thus worth the investment.
