I wish they worked the same way with Android, I'd probably grab a pair. Le Sigh.
The only difference is you have to push the button before saying "Hey Google" instead of them listening to everything you say waiting for "Hey Siri" which I obviously turned off immediately anyways.

I bought a new phone on primeday... and when I'm paired with my car or headphones, it reads my texts to me, asks if I want to reply, and transcribes the audio reply. It's spooky how well this shit works.

And yet most fuckheads behind the wheel are still holding their phones in front of their mouths screaming into the speakerphone...

Tennessee enacted a new law on 7/1 that makes it illegal to have a phone in your hand while driving. I guess efforts to curb "texting & driving" were either ineffective or too difficult to enforce. This way, it doesn't matter. Does it infringe on civil liberties a bit much? Yeah, but as my kids approach driving age, I like the idea that they're less likely to be killed by a f#$%tard trying to text an eggplant to some skank.

I've been bluetoothing my phone to the car for years so I can listen to podcasts while driving to another county and back every morning. With the new phone and new ride, AndroidAuto is pretty sweet for people trying to keep from touching their phones in the car.

It would be awesome if it was smart enough to read the text beforehand and know that there is something objectionable. "Are you sure you want me to read this aloud?"

Surprisingly enough, this is a Hong Kong-based KS, and not something cooked up by a Japanese garage kit builder.


For those of you with lives and girlfriends/wives, that pool is essentially the Japanese equivalent to this:

If you don't know what THAT is, well, good on you for staying away from internet degeneracy!

It's supposedly pretty ubiquitous. I've watched my fair share of JAV, but I only think I've seen it once.

Having recently spent some time in Japan, I can certainly affirm that they are into some very odd things (from my decidedly western perspective at least). I found the rope/suspension business particularly puzzling.

A couple of the tiers have it coming with figures. They used pictures of the 1/12 Phicen figure, which is a "seamless" figure. What it'll actually come with?

No, but there is a 1/12 middle-aged fat man figure out there.

Tech is crazy these days, but we don't realize it since we've just slowly been building up to it.

AND

It was normalized in all the "Sci Fi" we watched, so of course we expected it to happen someday.

Where is my warp drive!

Flip phones, tablets, teleconferencing, etc. Trek certainly inspired many to develop some awesome stuff we fully take for granted these days.

Behind a camera watching you!
In one ep of tng they tapped the badge & did some kind of search throughout the ship & the computer responded with the number of people having intercourse at the time.
I knew right then & there it was really a totalitarian society

Yeah, looking back, it was most definitely a socialist utopia (and thus fiction). I do appreciate them elaborating on how their society got to it's condition though during that multi-episode segment where Q is putting them on trial or somesuch.

That thing looks so cool and legitimately handles just like real deal! I don’t know how much a transmitter costs, but that’s no a bad price for something that awesome!

I looked it all up and had to back off.

$350 for the bird:

E-flite A-10 Thunderbolt II 64mm EDF BNF Basic with AS3X and Safe Select, EFL01150



And $230 for the minimum 6ch transmitter:

Spektrum DX6 6-Channel 2.4GHz DSMX RC Radio Transmitter Only, SPMR6750



That’s just too rich for a 1:16ish foam bird I’ll certainly plant into the ground at some point. I’ll stick to my near un-crashable drone.
