Comment Re:On US 101? Irresponsible (Score 1) 293

So you are saying that driving instructors are also just as irresponsible as they are taking out 16 year olds who have never driven before? Endangering the other drivers! Some of those cars they use don't even have a brake on the instructor's side, let alone a steering wheel. So much more irresponsible compared to Google's car it seems.

To be infected you have to go into settings and approve non-market installation, browse to a Chinese site, download their market installer, install it, find the Steamy Windows app, say okay to the permission window where it says it can send text messages that may cost you money, and then open it? I'd say Android is still pretty safe.

Windoze, M$... Though you may have some good points, writing it that way invalidates any relevance you may have in my eyes. All I see is an overweight balding linux lover in his basement, taking his anger out on Microsoft. Why do you say IE, when you could be saying I€?

The software they used was had a log of the traffic data. They did not know about it, they didn't plan to collect it. And the moment they found out about it they told everyone. If they had just silently deleted it no one would have known. But Google felt it was best to be open about their mistake.

They knew exactly what was in it, and when they found out they immediately released a statement and told everyone. They said they already fixed the problem and wouldn't capture that data anymore, and that they were deleting everything already collected. Then suddenly governments everywhere were saying, don't you dare delete it, we need that as evidence to sue you and further our political careers!
