Also, it's made out of metal, a real cheetah is made out of meat, it's like they totally didn't try at all. They need to have their funding removed immediately.
This isn't about making money directly from the game or even its IP. This is about Microsoft having a T1 line directly in to kid's brains. Kids eat, sleep, and breathe Minecraft, Microsoft just bought the mind-share of an entire generation.
It's not a liability no matter what, it's just that I don't believe this technology is durable and reliable enough for mounting in a gun just yet. In a safe, you can have the scanner mains powered with a battery back up; a gun kept in the nightstand for home defense might well turn out to be out of batteries just when you need it most.
So the gun on the nightstand couldn't be kept plugged in the same way you charge your cell phone overnight?
No, it's a case of "Drive on public roads; obey the laws."
On slashdot, there was an article that linked to a video of google engineers describing how their system works. IIRC, they preprogrammed responses to a bunch of situations (like avoiding a bicycle on the side of the road), using heuristics to detect when/where/which situation was occuring. In contrast, humans are in a constant state of intuitive heuristics. While they take longer to react, they're aware of possible consequences long before a computer can be, which puts them way ahead of electronic idiot savants with lightning reflexes.
And yet human drivers still manage to do stuff like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
The Pirate Bay will be devastated.
Your definition of "clearly" is very different than most people's I think... Sure, if you separate the word Aircraft in to "Air" and "Craft" you might be able to argue that one of the words could mean a manned vehicle. But when taken as a single word "Aircraft" has nothing to do with being manned or not. Every definition I can find is basically "A vehicle capable of atmospheric flight due to interaction with the air, such as buoyancy or lift."
Your argument really feels like the kind of games sovereign citizens and other conspiracy theorists play when they find "loopholes" in the law that will make them rich or allow them to not pay taxes.
Oh my god. Imagine the smear it would have left on the side of a building if it hit it!
The problem is more the smear on the sidewalk left when it falls on some 5 year old's head from 400 feet up.
No drone, or "remotely piloted aircraft" in DoD newspeak, should be flown over a populated area.
So would flying them over a large body of mostly unoccupied water be ok? Like perhaps a river that's 2/3 of a mile wide?
You can clearly hear in the recording that it went between buildings. It wasn't constantly over the water.
Details like that are only important to the ISP if they actually intend to deliver the advertised speed.
Play the game for 5 minutes with the depth of field effect and you will see why that was disabled; the game is unplayable that way. As for the other stuff; no idea.
Waze is owned by Google now, but it still uses some strange 3rd party text to speech library instead of Google's superior one. Google needs to start busting some heads and get them using the built functionality that Android has. Other than that minor gripe, I completely agree with you.
Do you consider coal to be a rock?
A place so big and fantastic where anything that is theoretically possible has probably happened hundreds or thousands, if not millions, of times.
There is a great video here of it handling an erratic bicyclist.
