For the last 12 years US Custom and Border services take the fingerprints of any non-american entering the USA, and share them with NSA. Now it's time to get the fingerprints of all the Americans as well.
All the cars should be automatic. Then all the fatal accidents will be caused by bad programmers instead of bad drivers.
And it will most probably warn you before doing that, so you can do it yourself. No worries here.
It will cost just a hundred billion euros and will make 2% of the fatal accidents non-fatal, only crippling.
Unfortunately, my car runs closed source software, and I tend to use it a lot...
Will they have to disable it?
TLC endurance was tested in this article:
The right monkey, named "Ahmadinijad" (Persian for "very ugly ape, even by ape standards"), was too busy hanging innocent apes of homo muslimus genus, and had to stay on earth.
You probably have a bad unit (either hardware or software). My iMito MX1 is rock stable in android. XBMC is not stable yet, there are occasional FCs, but it closes gracefully without any trouble to the OS.
I usually buy stuff on Amazon. Please check what Raspberry Pi costs on Amazon and then compare to Amazon's MK808 price. I checked a few sites like Adafruit that offer Raspberry PI for $35+cheap shipping but they don't have it in stock
Don't forget that you have to add a case (~$10) and wi-fi adapter if you need wireless connectivity, while in in mk808/iMito it is included. No ethernet though, but I didn't need it anyway.
Even if you ship by regular registered mail (e.g. by HK post) and not by private companies like DHL/Fedex/UPS?
Yes, you can run a Beowulf cluster of them!
I would rather compare to RK3066-based miniPCs. It's a dual-core platform with very good performance and has a number of mini-PCs based on it (MK808, UG808, iMITO etc). Android is a joy to use on this platform, and linux is under development.
The price is 50-60$ including shipping, which is not a lot more than 35$+shipping
