    If something (Micrsoft Office, for example) doesn't run in a browser, it won't run on Chrome OS.

    :rolleyes:

    When people talk say "it's not the bike", they are (usually) talking about the same type of bike (comparing road bikes that cost $6000 and $2500).

    This from the onion?

    It's obviously made up.

    What's odd is why the center item is highlighted with white tape when the ones at the left and right are equally "humorous".

    Particular head units might only connect to sensors with the bit set but things work quite-well without doing that.

    "Pairing" is a bit of a confusing term.

    This wouldn't be a good design for sensors generally.

    For cadence/speed/heartrate transmitters, the life time, for normal usage, is much less than that.

    The ANT+ stuff works well anyway.

    It seems BTLE was inspired by it.
