This is not what big data is, this is just selling customers' information. And Google, despite being listed in the summary, never does it BTW.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
[...] the idea that there was a point in time before which the universe didn't exist [...]
Time is part of the universe, so there wasn't and there will never be a point in time when the universe doesn't exist. On the other hand, there could be other universes, possibly with their own times.
Another point that lots of people, especially in the US, seem to miss is that these cars are (mostly) not meant to be sold. The main use case is that people will just call one when needed. If done on a large scale there will be a much larger number of cars available than current taxis, so one will almost always be nearby.
Transportation is not a product, it's a service.
Much cheaper and requires far less parking space. Also you don't need to bother ever again with repairs and model upgrades. Remember: private cars spend >90% of their time parked. Waste of time and space.
No wonder Google is making its own cars. Conventional car makers are probably scared shitless of this future and would do anything to keep the public in the old world.
yes, requiring a company WHO IS IN THE HEALTH-CARE BUSINESS to continue saving lives and not taking profits as the first thing.
But the whole reason why they are required to do so is because there are other companies producing the same drug. If this wasn't the case nobody would have cared which of the two versions they produced.
It's fixing a stupid situation with even more stupidity rather than attacking the root causes: patents and excessive effect of advertising on doctors' decisions.
I'm not even sure it can make the trip to the ISS with a crew with this configuration.
It can't. The DIVH lacks the features required to safely launch humans anywhere. This will be a one-off test. The "real" thing begins with EM1 and the following missions.
There are companies with multi-PB databases (PB, not TB).
IP is a marketing term, there's no concept of IP in the law. There are trademarks, copyright and patents. Ideas cannot be owned by anyone.
From the Google Play Store you can install a terminal emulator, an HTTP server, an SSH/SFTP server or client, bash, vim, gcc, make, git, mc, rsync...
Android supports standard keyboards and mice, and many devices have some sort of HDMI output (usually with an adapter).
Unfortunately the people that keep these articles in such bad state seem to have far more free time than the volunteers that want to improve them following the rules, so wikipedia's gradual improvement model fails for these articles about religion.
No thanks, wouldn't want a car that I can't manually override when shit happens.
Dude, if you want to drive a car manually you are the shit that will happen to other people on the road.
