Can we please keep things on topic and not have every article turn into a gay marriage debate? No? Ok, Let's just get this exo-whatever thing built so we can have more time for our military to attend sensitivity training.
RE sensitivity training: People who are actually IN the military don't complain so much about who they are fighting next to, it's the people that are out or were never in, trust me.
This is extremely true. I was in the Marine Corps during DADT and the repeal. I heard maybe a couple of people complain at the repeal of DADT, and in execution I noticed a grand total of 0 changes, including no decrease in the rampant number of dick and gay jokes.
Not sure where you're coming from on this; how? Do you think the automated cars are going to be free/cheaper than existing taxi cabs and public transit? Or are you basing this claim on some rationale I have yet to consider?
"To those who say that self-driving cars have nothing to do with Google's core business selling ads, listen up: Google was just awarded a patent for an ad-powered taxi service. The patent, which was first spotted by TechCrunch, would allow advertisers to offer potential customers a free ride to their place of business. This would solve one of the biggest problems for brick-and-mortar retailers: getting customers to their location. The system would offer free or discounted transportation based on an algorithm-powered decision-making process involving the user's current location, the cost of transportation, and the potential profit from a completed sale. The concept is basically a "free ride coupon" and mentioned transportation modes like taxis, trains, buses, or even autonomous vehicles." http://arstechnica.com/gadgets...
A "computer company" is one which makes something computer related for sale (hardware or software) as it's primary business.
Software is Uber's primary business. Opentable isn't a restaurant, they are a software as a service operating in the restaurant industry. Golfnow isn't a golf company, they are software company in the golf industry. Uber is the same thing. They may be targeting a certain industry, but ultimately they are a software company servicing that industry.
