This is not progress...it is a kind of stagnation that capitalism provides. 

much like Steve Jobs pretending it was some wonderful thing to 'invent' a new font...we are not creating anything new we are just making patents for **** that doesn't matter, to justify the career of midwits in research and development.

innovation cannot be automated (obviously), but we live in a society that tries to automate every thing and perceives value in nothing but graphs and spreadsheets.

Almost killed the dog. Because he was stepping on the buttons.. and the automatic car window was  going  up and choking him..  And my buttons wouldnt bring it down.. Got him out of it..  and he was ok.. but boy!  What was wrong with a roll up window..

Fought with the printer all nite. Got so dam mad. Bought a new one.  Stuck on paper jam with no paper in it.. error.. error..

Windows 10  is a nightmare compared to windows 7... no need of ALL this garbage!!! all the bells and whistles that make things WORSE! 
AND ALL the chinese junk that doesn't last or work too.
brand new sink plunger from the hardware store- not the dollar store. Lasted for about two plunges.
I look around for vintage.. like can openers- or ice cube trays.

I accidentally rolled my dog's tail up in the window before.

Went right around the roller. He was ok too. But ouchy ouchy :wave:

Considerable heat dissipated  via the transmissions cooling system is proof that much "work" is lost..
A manual trans takes less HP to turn...too.
Even though many cars have "lock up" torque converters once you reach cruising speed..there is a MPG penalty that comes with the auto trans / fluid drive.
The percentage of cars and light trucks sold with automatic transmissions has increased quite a bit over the past ten years, and so has the average MPG. The most fuel efficient cars have CVTs (Continuously Variable Transmissions). They have an infinite number of gears.

BS.
THERE ARE MORE 300 to 500 HP MONSTER TRUCKS AND HIPO CARS  ON THE ROAD TODAY THAN EVER BEFORE. 
HP IS A FUNCTION OF POUNDS OF FUEL PER HOUR THAT THE ENGINE CAN CONSUME

Auto Transmissions WITH THEIR INHERENT SLIPPAGE [HEAT LOSSES] CONSUME MORE POWER [MPG] than standard gear boxes you STUPID STEM CHALLENGED POS.

i love it when people like you try to show off your obscure knowledge and instead expose how ignorant you are. 'infinite gears' is a physical impossibility. There is a thing called plank's constant.

Well in this case "INFINITE GEARS" is the VARIABLE  SLIPPAGE / VARIABLE ENGAGEMENT THAT IS PART OF ANY  FLUID DRIVE SYSTEM 

You can  see that his reply was a "RE-WORDING" of something he copied and pasted yet did not fully understand.

i have no doubt that the issue is simply semantic. It is some transmission that doesnt work from physical gears. sure. But still it isnt infinite. Im being nitpicky, but i am okay with that cause he was trying to be clever, obviously, and not addressing the real subject.

The "INFINITE" aspect is that until the torque converter REACHES A ONE TO ONE  LOCKUP WITH ENGINE RPM...the car moves forward with what is in effect an infinite ratio.
The term "infinite" in tech lingo means that there are not definite "steps" or "clicks" from low to high...just a smooth transition....[like an INFINITELY ADJUSTABLE POTENTIOMETER.]

Well, yeah, the transmission finds the ideal ratio and stays with it.

I have observed that when I put my Subaru Outback on an open highway with the cruise control set at 55, the average MPG goes up to 37 MPG.

If enough people want a standard transmission, someone will sell it.
The Subaru with paddles and a 2.4 L engine gives better mileage and more power than any other car I have owned.

You don't understand what slippage is.
By the time you get up to cruising speed then your torque converter "locks up" and matches engine RPM.
I have already gone over this with you.
Please stop wasting my time with your very limited understanding and unwillingness to learn.
"Paddles" means nothing as far as internal efficiency is concerned..."paddles" is just a fingertip controlled shifter........

Sure...semantic. but based on modern knowledge of physics there is such a thing as a smallest possible unit of energy so reality is fundamentally discrete. It is not an actual continuum although it is close enough above the quantum level

and never exceeds ancestral displacements here now. ha ha ha ha ha ha intellectual choices to deny biology only works as ancestors being eternally separate results occupying space here performing the nature of their social narrative never accepting themselves as eternally separate forms alive as physically present since conceived.

second response, you ever notice how every devised ideology is governed by same principles of doubt all circling around a common point at mutually evolving here the personal time each reproduction has adapting to the moment now?
