Where are you getting this stuff about chatrooms from? There's no such thing in Facebook.
Or maybe the goal is to prevent people from exceeding the posted speed limit all the time, instead of just when a patrol car is visible up ahead.
Playing with a baseball is not the same as playing baseball. Baseball is a specific game, a baseball is a specific piece of equipment. You can play baseball without a baseball, and you can play with a baseball without playing baseball. So unless legos is a particular activity that you use your legos to play, than saying "play legos" doesn't really make sense.
This test wasn't for a drivers license, it was for a ”self-driving vehicle testing license”. Sounds like a learners permit more than anything else, and as I recall learners permits for people are pretty simple to acquire too. There isn't even a road test.
I use Hangouts pretty much every day and in the past month it's used less than 15MB of data total on my phone. This includes some photos I've sent with it. I have no idea what you are doing to get such high data usage, but I don't think it's typical.
This law applies specifically to consumer goods. How many consumer goods require an NDA to purchase? In pretty sure not even the Apple store has tried that.
So do trucks blithely crash into your car every time you slow down, or did you slam on the breaks exactly as you were instructed not to do?
That's one magic cable you have if it has a mark that identifies the up position for both my current phone as well as my previous phone who's usb port has the opposite orientation.
Many more people than just developers deal with both a phone and tablet every day.
Google is working on a font family which supports every Unicode character, it's a big job though.
It's "an app store for the physical world"? Or in other words, it's a store.
True, but macroscopic species can survive on their own. Viruses need to infect hosts to spread, and many viruses don't remain viable for long outside of a host. From what I can find, it seems like smallpox is such a virus.
Google has killed services before that cost them money to continue operating, that's not the same thing as an open source codec at all.
Do you have any evidence that self-driving cars are unsafe, or that human intervention has been necessary?
None at all, that's my only point. I'm extremely optimistic that automated cars will be safer than human drivers within the decade if they aren't already. It's not a very high bar to attain, really.
Their record so far is excellent, but the tests are still being done with professional drivers behind the wheel. We don't know what sort of weather conditions the cars have had to deal with, or how much the drivers have needed to intervene. Have they gone out in thunderstorms and blizzards and still have never needed driver intervention? It's possible, I don't know.
