Unlike the rest of WW2 where no civilians died?

You also realize that both Hiroshima and Nagasaki were part of the war machine in Japan, right? Hate to say it but bombing cities was a common tactic by all sides back then. War has never been fair. If we ever found ourselves in a situation similar to WW2, I dare say it would happen again, too, by every side.

War... war never changes.

Not associated other then I live in the city - Haven't step foot in a library in over a decade, but with their Makerspace (3d printers, book printer, kid friendly toys to learn how circuits work, music making devices, etc), ebooks, etc I've become pretty impressed. Very forward thinking and friendly staff.

Just curious - assuming the car can determine who is a traffic cop - as you seem to imply by your response to the GP - how do you stop a teenager on the side of the road from holding his hand out like a traffic cop - something any driver would ignore, but how would the car? Are we installing some wireless signal in all cop uniforms? Can that be hacked? What if a cop doesn't have his special uniform on does the car just ignore him? Do we also replace all traffic cops with robots?

I'm tired of this whole "cars will be safer once machines drive because they never make mistakes" argument that seems to be common here. For many months a year where I drive the road is covered by snow and ice, and you basically have to "best guess" where the lanes are. How will cars handle that? Whats the safety order - do we dodge to avoid the kid, but force ourselves into an oncoming semi, or does the car weigh hitting the kid as an acceptable loss?

Maybe someones solved all of this and has brought the cost down so everyone can afford one - but I've seen minimal evidence so far. Just that R"obot Cars are the future and I should embrace them and stop asking questions..."

I don't play as hard-core as most, and at most a couple hours every other day. But I find there's enough content to do something whenever I'm on, and with the dungeon finder it helps finding someone to do whatever your looking for.

But whatever game you play of this type it comes down to the community. Having a core group for friends to play with can turn any game into fun.

there's a bigger difference betweent iOS and Android then just Sideloading. Change the default apps for email, maps, etc to whatever you want. Skin the UI. Make the choice and run a rooted custom version of Android. Different selection of handset sizes. Etc.

If anything, Sideloading is pretty useless for the majority of users. Its the other things that people use generally that makes Android different.

Uh the info was in the presentation. On giant slides. And in the words that were spoken. Not sure how much more clear you want it. Sony specifically said "does not need to check in every 24 hours" "you can play offline" "eye camera is $59" The details are there clear as day check any gaming news site. Want examples of those? Joystiq and Kotaku are two big ones.
