  • "I like how you have formatted your critique like a gently patronizing, sarcastic mom."
    on: Industrial Design Firm Knack Creates an Unusual, Easy-to-Transport Drinks Cooler
  • "I drive a Volvo 240 because it's a durable, simple machine that is crazy user-friendly - thoughtful, spacious, utilitarian. But they're getting old, and I always wished a modern manufacturer would pick up the Volvo Redblock mantle. The bronco almost feels like a best hope in that direction - sure, it's exponentially more complex, the storage space isn't nearly as good, but it's boxy, has the user firmly in mind, and it SEEMS like quality won at least a few budget arguments. I have doubts that it's capable of the same astronomical mileage as a 240, but fingers crossed. It's an appealing vehicle so far."

  • "It's visually appealing, but the proprietary charcoal makes it seem almost like a Juiciero of grilling - I understand the problem they sought out to solve, but there's only so much innovation and problem solving one can expect from placing food over (or under, or indirectly near) heat, and I'm not convinced that this is a productive tangent. "

  • "Horrendously visually front-heavy. Cant corner fast because you cant lean, cant corner slow because the wheel only has so much room to turn..."

  • "I thought they reminded me a little of the oculus controllers, but the resemblance is minimal. My big takeaway is confidence in what Sony is doing: the original PSVR was (and still is, though now very dated) an absolute home run, finding the right balance of satisfying what makes for good and comfortable vr gameplay with obvious cost cutting to make a peripheral device to the main console. While it lagged behind in some ways (mostly graphic fidelity and tracking), it’s still provided me with a few solid years of enjoyment. It’s downright good. If their track record keeps going with the next generation, it will be a fantastic but probably not top-of-the-line vr headset. These controllers are promising: Sony has taken criticism of the current tech (their very dated Move controllers) and improved the big flaws. "

  • "I want my high school science lab as a kitchen: all black soapstone counters around the walls, gas and water outlets at regular intervals, 3 long soapstone tables in the middle of the room with gas & water & sinks. Lots of low bunsen-type burners to plug into the gas so I can cook wherever I want. "
