Programming a race car to drive a perfectly mapped track is brain dead easy for even a 2nd year CS student.

Let cattle roam the track randomly, and the car drives at racing speed avoiding cows, goats, etc randomly darting in front of the car, then I'll be impressed.

"Imagine a wage worker making $20/hr produces the factory sensor part, at a rate of 100 per hour through the operation of a machine."

Will never happen. Reality is very different...

Imagine a wage worker making $8/hr produces the factory sensor part, at a rate of 100 per hour through the operation of a machine.

Executives do NOT want to pay living wages. It will be an $8 an hour job or outsourced to China where they pay $3.25 an hour.

It's the fault of the administrators to begin with. I am friends with one of the technical advisors for the midwest EOC and the problem is that the administrators dont know their ass from a hole in the ground and ignore their tech guys and listen to the vendors.

He has been screaming for all call centers to have analog failover, but the administrators refuse to hear it.

So who is to blame for the failures? That top moron of Homeland security. IT would have been in place if he would realize that he is not an expert and to actually LISTEN to the experts in the field.

IT will be, it will probably be as horrific as the LG, Motorola and Samsung crap.

If the Watch can not do 2-3 days on a charge , it is a complete and utter fail.
If the watch does not have an open API so apps can easily be written for it, it is a complete and utter fail.
And honestly, from what we have seen from Microsoft for mobile devices over the past 3 years, it will be a complete and utter fail.

I'd rather just believe that it's done by little elves running around.

Working...
