Google has the app geo-locked to US credit cards for reasons I do not understand because it actually works everywhere. I am in Canada and can use Google Wallet (with my US credit card).
You need an open platform that emulates a card that everyone accepts. Google Wallet works EVERYWHERE, because it just emulates a Visa card. You can use it at ANY Paypass or Paywave terminal regardless of if it says Google Wallet on it.
The only need to make "deals" is if you want to take a cut of the transaction to increase your bottom line. Google tried that, failed, and changed Wallet so that it is totally open.
It depends on how you measure success.
Does the leaf sell more raw units? Assuredly.
Does the leaf outsell all other gasoline cars in their market segment? No they dont, but the Tesla Model S has.
Is the Model S more profitable than the leafâ¦ does the Model S make Tesla more money than the leaf makes Nissan? I have no idea but I bet it is at worst a draw.
Who should I believe?
Menahem Anderman a self confirmed "battery skeptic"
Elon Musk who runs the company that makes the best and arguably most successful electric car ever produced, and is constantly hitting production targets?
My money is on Elon.
Most of those games you quoted are very old and OP has probably played them all and is looking for something new.
Agree 100%. Maybe we're both old-timers (I am not even 35? *SIGH*), but I too play games to escape. I really dislike multiplayer games. I especially despise multiplayer first person shooters - the genre that has literally been the same rehash year after year for over a decade. Personally I prefer third person games because it lets me actually SEE my character and interact in a much better way than any FPS game.
Meanwhile, multiplayer games and FPS games are all most people in my circle care about so it is hard to find any common ground.
I have an app that reads incoming texts to me over my in-car bluetooth and lets me respond by voice. How does this account for that?
The main benefit of celcius is not that it is tied to water, it is that it is a linear scale. 30 degrees C is exactly twice as hot as 15 degrees C which is 15 times hotter than 1 degree C. Fahrenheit is not linear at all, it is logarithmic which makes it a huge PITA to work with in equations.
Just download and install VyOS (fork of Vyatta) if you're building your own firewall.
Money flows. 100,000 people working at a factory all need to spend the money they earn on consumer goods, food, and housing. All of that money makes a lot of taxes for the state, even if Tesla is not paying much tax.
I have no idea what you're talking about because I have used Google Voice to call home from abroad for free on several occasions.
Yep. In fact the more you look at the data the more it looks like Google was not hacked at all and these accounts were collected from elsewhere, then perhaps verified against Google.
There are lots of watches on the market that monitor your pulse directly from your wrist. The whole Android Wear line of watches for one.
I completely disagree with you. I certainly DO NOT want automated driving systems to be supervised by a human, because compared to machines humans make horrible decisions and are slow to react to stimuli. In fact, I don't want a a human to be able to control the vehicle at all. Such is my nirvana.
Automated driving systems DO NOT need to be foolproof.
Near 100% of highway accidents are the result of humans. The amount due to equipment failure is so small as to be statistically insignificant. Even if the automated system is only 95% foolproof, it would still reduce the number of traffic accidents by a huge margin by removing fallible humans from the equation.
