How fast does your ebike go raggie. Does it take hills well? Looks like it has pedals also, so on a straight or downhill a person could get some exercise. That pedaling motion is good for my messed up legs.
We have some apps that we pay for and others not. So we may watch a few episodes on one app, and a few of something else on another. I don't keep a log of what we watched, nor of which app it was on. I'll end up going through the different apps looking for something in particular, or just something that we found interesting. Last night I decided, that I hadn't seen all of the episodes of "The Equalizer" Prime video had it for a cost. I decided to try to search for it.My main gripe about video streaming is the horrific fragmentation of the market and the resulting penalty to user experience. Managing multiple accounts is an annoyance, but the fact that one also has to use every provider's bespoke application to access content is aggravating. I'm willing to pay for content and may well want to wander into Netflix's app so I can see whatever their algos think I want to watch, but I may well want to watch, say, The Expanse and The Mandelorean without wading through the Prime and Disney+ apps respectively.
It's getting power at the plug, so I need to test the rest now. Them rats got my light working in the utility room again and I was suspicious that they did something to the 220 wires. I guess they did to the 220 wires the ac plugs in. It runs 5 minutes and pops real bad and trips a breaker. Cools the trailer real good till it does. My wife is scared to use it like that. The 220 wire is rigged from the old central air unit and dogs might have hit it chasing the cats.
You said it, the "good stuff" still exists, it’s just prohibitively expensive or unavailable to the average consumer (meaning only to professionals, companies and industries). That as well as planned obsolescence and modern companies’ attitude towards repair, sucks, but that’s exactly my point. Technology ≠ planned obsolescence/bad products. The technology itself is good and not the problem, it’s how we, as a society, decide to use it.Companies are for the most part using this technology to their advantage, but not for the sake of the buyer who can't even fix the new fangled stuff.
The peasants don't have access to nor can they afford the good stuff if there is any.
Oh, ok. You said it so smooth and nice I didn't know it was a rant. My words seem angry- yours don't.You said it, the "good stuff" still exists, it’s just prohibitively expensive or unavailable to the average consumer (meaning only to professionals, companies and industries).

In my rant I was focusing more on our societal problems that exist despite our technology, and how some of those problems probably won’t be solved for some time, due to lack of certain technologies, especially key manufacturing technologies and automation. Also sophisticated computers that will eventually replace man in most fields of work or make them obsolete, including logistics and government. Humans don’t make very good leaders, and aren’t very intelligent.
Sorry, I was reading first page of this very long thread, where they were discussing such things, when I posted.Wrong thread, Dave.
Hopefully, the thread title will soon appear at the top of every post. That way we won't need to go to the top of the page to be reminded which thread we're reading/posting in.
Lol, stupid blonde (me)- grease and oil do wonders.71 truck is giving me window roller trouble. 63, 64, 65, 66 chevy trucks NEVER gave me trouble like that. Owned a 76 that did fine- they must have fixed the stupidity they did on the 67-72's. I might have to get some new window regulators.
Stupid bean counters. 71 was when the vega came out.....I guess they "tweaked" a few other vehicles instead of stopping with the vega. The vega was a bean counter deluxe.
