Clearly you have never heard of a rhetorical question.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Oh no! It's a holy war against the internet!
I wonder how well that will work out. Will the internet fight back?
When the human testing starts, should it be old people first? afftected-continent people first? family-receives-high-payment people first?
I think they should be volunteers at the very least.
If you RTFA you'll notice that human testing has already started.
I think the only problems with their implementation are political ones.
I'm pretty sure your algorithm would be worse than 50%. It basically amounts to "which even comes first? A) site gets hacked or b) site gets taken down."
I think more sites get taken down every day than get hacked.
Unless the project is R&D or entirely new and unknown architecture should be the larger job. Building without planning really only works when you aren't working with a team.. so it hardly ever works in a corporate or government environment.. as demonstrated by the article.
Not if they don't make any money. Punkspider has been available for over a year now, and it does much the same thing.
They have created a maze that inevitably leads to rats regretting their decisions, no matter what logic they use to make them. Do you know what this means? We've given rats a taste of politics!
Unfortunately, I don't see simple car interfaces coming back.. not if Google gets "behind the wheel" of the next car revolution. Google Cruse is going to be the next app store for your smartcar, mark my words. Everyone is going to get WAYYY more features than they ever wanted and end up with a car that freezes for 5 - 10 seconds before pulling into drive (just like an android). They'll convince everyone they love it, though, by offering 100 different choices for the voice that naggs you when your gas (battery) gets low and offers you three EXCELLENT choices of stations (2 of which have paid for premium placement in the notification system).
Hmm... I think I might know why
That's like saying when aliens attack you'll be glad you bought UFO insurance. Just because you can imagine a scenario does not make it likely. I have seen no compelling evidence that terrorism is a battle worth giving up my privacy and freedom for.
The worst company in the world? I thought that ignoble award still went to Wal-Mart.
Awesome. Looks like I'll be using old jet engines to keep drones off my property in the future. Suck them up and sell em for scrap.
This is just the start of something larger. Drones will get smaller and smaller until the technology will be there to release a cloud of gnat-like drones to monitor the entire world. What will the FCC say then if the gnat operators start suing people who have wind power generators for destroying their property? They need a policy that stretches back as far as possible. Without a defined line to draw it's just a long series of incremental advancements between RC planes and gnat drones.
