Comment: He acted lawfully??? (Score 5, Insightful) 463

From the article -> “He was responding to a deputy who was inquiring whether the fire investigation had been completed. Since Wood was acting within the course and scope of his duties when he began to type his response, under Vehicle Code section 23123.5, he acted lawfully.”

So by this same logic - if he was typing on his computer and rammed his car into a McDonalds and killed 10 people, this would have been lawful too???

If I'm not mistaken, if you do a first act lawfully, and you do a second act like reckless driving as a result of the first - you're still liable for the second act. If you drink a coffee lawfully and spill it on yourself and then jump lanes and hit a bicyclist - you don't think you'd get hit with vehicular manslaughter?? And your argument would be, "I was drinking coffee lawfully, so lets throw this case out of court?"

Geez...

If I'm not mistaken, if you do a separate act lawfully, if you do a second act like reckless driving as a result of the first - you're still liable for the second act. If you drink a coffee lawfully and spill it on yourself and then jump lanes and hit a semi and kill 4 people - you don't think you'd get hit with vehicular manslaughter??

Comment: So what does this mean for an API? (Score 0) 107

I haven't heard of this product before, but it looks very interesting. I was looking at a few months ago what appears to be similar - a ISY994i to control Insteon automation products. All I want is something that has an API or is somewhat open ended so I can program my own stuff for it. ISY994i has it's limitations, but supports a lot of hardware (sensors, etc). Sooo... does this mean Samsung will lock it down so it can only be accessed through it's own app on a Samsung phone or through a Samsung TV or, god forbid, their smart watch (or w/e)? I would much more like it if Google bought it (although I know the advertising/privacy concerns) - at least it would most likely be more open. I'm waiting to hear how Samsung will essentially kill it off for people like me or will they make it better??

Comment: couldnt this be fooled? (Score 0) 146

Just thinking it through - if "terrorists" knew this stuff was in use, couldnt they train themselves to calm down and go into a low stress pre-murder state? I gotta imagine if you were serious about this, you would buy a similiar test system and run through it enough to see how to act to not be detected. Is this an accurate thought? Or would you always be flagged before a murderous rampage? Thinking false negative.

Comment: So... how much did they spend to get this savings? (Score -1) 116

So if I spend 80k on a new car to save 1k a year in energy costs, is this a win too? Is this a similar thing? I don't see the numbers on capital expenditure to achieve these savings. Usually when I see something like that ommitted, its to intentionaly hide something and to push some agenda or propaganda.
