It has to be either they have developed their own to the point they don't want competition, someone didn't get sufficiently greased or irrational fears. Bribes can trump the others so there's your reason.
As with everything it depends on the service level and cost. If you live outside major cities your service level would be like Amtrak in those cities - terrible. This is proposed for a major city where it makes the most sense and I expect will lock the inhabitants (or at least the non-wealthy ones) into those cities by denying transport outside them and preventing them from traveling to less spoiled areas.
We have 30k+ deaths a year from traffic accidents in the US. The UK could not be too far behind per capita. Driverless cars have a flawless safety record. Even if they screw up and kill somebody it won't be anything like 30k/year. That means every day we don't deploy driverless cars here kills something like 90 people. It's sad governments seem more interested in BS like lawsuits, gun control and drug wars instead of actually preventing people from dying.
He will do great - right up until he is sued into oblivion.
Mwaaa mwaahh haah haa, Muaaa Ha Ha Ha Ha, Muaaa Ha Ha Ha Ha!
What will you do now you puny international community?
Well they don't want to go arrest people in Mexico. It's dangerous down there and besides the Maldives have great beaches.
I'm sure you could mail your payment to Amazon or possibly use a credit card but don't use a 1-click system or other charges may apply.
Except of course that individual current owners of Yahoo would see that the investors would get a 25% return and figure other people would sell at market and they could hang on to their shares for a while to get a chunk of the 25%. The investors would effectively have to pay a portion of the premium. They would also have to deal with the risk that they put the whole deal together and then someone jumps in and buys out Yahoo for a tiny bit more or that Yahoo directors tank the value through poison pills or other actions in response to their attempt.
I build and sell mobile animatronics. Last year I pulled an 8 track player and a VCR out of an entertainment robot and upgraded it with a DVD and LCD TV. It had been running shows in local classrooms since the early 80s.
An anonymous reader writes "The article speaks for itself but basically the suggestion is there are watch lists and holds issued regarding the purchase of simple electronic components thanks to US provided name lists. It reads pretty crazy but David L Jones has been around a while. Is he getting played here or have others had the same experience?"

You've tried ultra bright IR but you really need flickering ultra-bright IR strobing at different rates and levels. A solid IR just sets things up for a better photo. Providing the camera didn't have an IR filter and did photograph IR a flickering IR would cause differing light needs within the exposure window which the camera would be unlikely to adapt to. If you are able to link the timing of the flickering in with your own cameras you'd be able to shut it off momentarily (electronically) and grab the photo.
Not necessarily. The same could be said for the power of experience, leadership, morale, training or logistical support. The US military is neither Jedi nor Sith but they are pretty well led, trained and supported. Having the biggest guns does nothing to help you when you pull the trigger and it goes 'click' because you're out of bullets, didn't maintain it or forgot to flip the safety.
Here they come. Order in Colorado, delivery in Florida.
"Now we sue Bitcoin and shut them down. (whispers) They don't have lawyers? Excellent! (whispers) What do you mean they don't exist as an entity?(whispers) Distributed what?! (whispers) Damn those techies. They can't do that. Don't they understand real business?"
Is there any bottom to this at all? Seriously, I expected them to be nasty, bureaucratic and invasive but it sounds like they were taking policy guidelines from conspiracy websites.
