No sharing according to this?
I suppose the issue is that the WIFI radios are capable of using unlicensed to them bands, which is under fw control?
I thought it takes a lot of hw to have a decent auto-pilot capability (laser rangers, video cameras, radars) .
Apparently, Teslas were already equipped?
You certainly cannot use a phone without hands-free setup in California...but reading a book, napping or playing musical instrument (yup I did see this on I580 - she was playing a recorder) is probably ok?
2h limit can be enforced (same to downtown parking) by an automatic self driving to/from recharge station?
Then let the AI fight over who was first?
"real men do not use fists, they use their AI"
Now this can be fixed because it has:
>> ability to define new bits of syntax on your own to extend the language
So all in all did VW need to cheat? i.e. what benefits did they really acquire?
Were their diesel better-speced then competition (fuel economy and power)?
Were they saving on scrubbing devices?
It's (sadly) funny that the OS feature most taunted in second decade of 21th century is...GUI widget, even if it's an "app launcher" (gui shell, aka. desktop). Notably, "launchers" can be changed in android without sweat. Why not in Windows?
As other commented observed, EM radiation diminishes with a square of distance, rendering it undetectable over interstellar distances, unless star-power emitters are used, Ditto for gravity. Likewise with neutrino-base comms, except it's the probability of catching this one stream of neutrinos that would diminish with square of distance.
Why would one use any of the C-speed-limited comms through interstellar space (to justify existence of star-power EM for example)r? Other then a species that have very slow time perception (say feel a "day" is 1000 earth years to make such comms usefull to them)...how would they even evolve?
They (ET) would have to really target us as direction of comms...but how would they know we are even here, per above, and why would they even want to?
On top of that we have temporal alignment chance...
IMHO, There is a good chance life did develop on other planets, sadly there is a very slim chance we will ever know about it. But, SETI is like playing Lotto, slim chances of success when you play vs no chance if you do not play and but put your energy elsewhere.
Being a father of two and started to use digital cameras in last century, I collected sizable archive. It's too easy to take them and costly to process them. After each session (vacation, getway, event) I quickly sit down and process them using Picassa. Delete ones that are grosly bad, let my wife have a pass too, then adjust the rest. Last step is to download them to my picture frames which I build from old laptops. This is where the fun is as my fam constantly sees the pictures and we often stop and marvel and refresh our memories. Actually I am thinking about buying a ~40" tv and rebuilding it into a monster picture frame with DLNA.
And backup on several USB external drives, kept in different locations so I do not loose them to fire or theft. When I run out of space on older drives, get a new one but keep the old.
really? that is what they are famous for?
I have to google it...ah for cars:
The only reason a smart person would want to work there is golden handcuffs. There must be something material ($$$) that most long time employees get there. Or they are not smart. Slaves did not have a choice to quit slavery. People under Mao or other communism regimes could not quit also. Pyramids were build presumably without forced labor...but you got gods' blessing. Manipulation and promises go only so long (hence attrition rates?). But given some products coming out of amazon (Fire Phone anyone) I have doubts there are many smart people left at Amazon.
Perhaps TFA misses something?
Assuming rental market traces real estate pricing, how do you "not participate"? Is your family homeless?
Using solar energy to compress the gas instead of leaking it?
Is the engine getting scared over the water?
Does it shiver?
It's not a darn hover board, is it?
I've got a bad feeling about this.
