Yes. Straw Man isn't the best term, but it was the first term that came to mind.
I haven't heard of this show until now. I wonder Anonymous Coward is just a sort of straw man trying to drum up interest.
Autonomous cars already hear.
It reads as if they were delivering test results via missile launch. I sit here very disappointed.

Accessibility. This is important. The HTML5 canvas is about more than just images. It's live elements that can contain text content and other display elements. HTML should render in a sensible manner on any device as dictated by the owner of the machine. All owners are not created equal. All renderings should not be equal.
"Browsers are supposed to provide abstraction from the machine" even if that's true, there's also a matter of canvas dimensions, which can vary depending on your resolution and browser's width. Those are not attributes of the machine, but of the display environment for the page. HTML is designed to adapt to different dimensions, font settings.
While quite sturdy devices, iPads are not designed for rolling. Couldn't they have just carried them out? Typical government idiocy.
Big ups to my garden, big ups to my hoe.
What the dill w/ my weeds and my dill-yo?
Gotta keep the green flowing round my grill-yo.
My lyrics is tight.
My rhymes on target.
I drop fatter beets
Than a farmer's market.
Need we comment further?
That word ("can" not)... I don't think it means what you think it means.
The word you are probably looking for is "may" not.
I remember when Google was starting out in 98 or so. They were paying people to use their search engine too. I made a small amount of money using them instead of Yahoo, Alta Vista, or Lycos. Substandard has little to do with it. It's hard to make people switch out of what they're used to.
... seeing that it's twelve getting paid what 8 deserve.
1. Walk up to spot. Stand next to car I do not own.
2. Check in with app
3. Accept Bids
5. Profit (and run like Hell)
How long must we sing this song?
Oh my. This was supposed to be posted to the previous story. MOD ME INTO OBLIVION!
If the goal is to clean up the UI, why show the URL at all unless asked for (CTRL+L or clicking on the "CHIP")? Don't lie to me... I'd rather you hide the URL all together than show me an incorrect one. By showing the protocol, then host name, you're showing me a valid URL, but it's the wrong one. Either say: Domain: bankofamerica.com , or just show the "Chip" and omit the url all together.
