    HE grenades are specifically "offensive" grenades since you can throw them while advancing on a position, and the pressure wave won't hurt you at all. Fragmentation grenades are classed by the US military as "defensive" grenades, since their shrapnel will travel FAR further at lethal velocities than you can throw it. When it training, you basically stand behind a waist high berm, chuck it, and go prone or duck right away

    A pressure cooker works well too. A couple inches of water, bring to pressure, remove the weight and have at it. All the steam you could want, though not particularly safe.

    I love the idea, but there are certainly a few improvements I can think of straight away - as you mentioned it's strange that we're limited to four ports. It looks like the modules could fit two USB-A ports, but it's cool that they aren't terribly expensive. As I saw the beginning of the video it felt all too familiar, and I was afraid the modules would be too expensive, and eventually the company would fold and you'd be stuck with what you got. It looks like they're hitting the right price point if they can market it right.

    9:15 "Why? Why would you make this one ... bigger than this one?" So you can undo them with only one set of wrenches, rather than having to buy two, to get duplicates. Many people with limited tools, space and/or money only have one set of wrenches.

    That crown is so tall... it needs a hat band or something to break up the vertical motonony, IMO. The internal band is actually somewhat visible as a ripple from the outside.

    *I really hope this will be a market disrupting product.* Getting back the ability to swap RAM, and batteries, is huge for the longevity of any laptop. It will save money for customers, especially casual users. And will benefit the environment as well. And it opens a previously closed door for enthusiasts. Having Dongles being an integrated part of the machine, is huge. Can't believe I haven't seen anyone do this, or even thought of it my self. Especially since we now have a "somewhat" universal port, in USB-C. captive screw fasteners, QR codes, and assembly with single plain easy access. Well I'll be damned. They really want to make it easy for us. I guess the video captured all of my arguments. But just wanted to put it out there anyway. If I had to say one nit picky negative thing. It would be that the screwdriver, while neat. It adds unnecessary cost and waste.

    Adam, I don't know how often or if you read the comments here, but I just want to say thank you. My son (adopted in February) and I watched this video yesterday after a difficult day of remote learning. I saw the title and thought it might be helpful for him as he struggles with failures, staying organized and owning mistakes. When you were talking about your dust up with your son and told him to listen and repeat your mantra of "My bad, I'm sorry, I screwed up" I think that might have stuck with my son. He wrote it down and thought about it a bit. Here's hoping your words inspired him...thanks again!

    hopefully you are still reviewing these... I have this monitor, love it, but want to use the multi-input feature that also enables the use of a single mouse and keyboard across the devices and am not finding the instructions for this configuration. my understanding is that you can set up multiple devices (i.e two laptops), display them together (i.e PBP HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 in a side by side configuration) and be able to navigate a single mouse over both as well as single keyboard input. but you must tell the mouse/keyboard which display receives the input. (i.e hover mouse over display 1, L or R click and use keyboard for data input or mouse click over web pages) Are you familiar with this capability?
