Both Chrome and Firefox use DirectX on windows to support various features like access to direct2d and hardware video decoding. So they both end up emulating OpenGL for WebGL by using ANGLE so they can have access to both an OpenGL API and those other things at the same time. It also doesn't help that the state of OpenGL drivers on window is pretty poor for most user. Sure gamers have high end gpus and up to date drivers but most users don't.
Well, in order to for angle to emulate OpenGL ES 3.0 it requires DirectX 11 (or maybe only 10). Regardless that means for all practical purposes XP won't be supported.
It's only Google planning for another epic Holiday Party
London's is older than NYCs (built in the mid 19th century) and looks clean and new and is of a comparable size and ridership so it's certainly possible for a large subway system to get overhauled. They're doing a major renewal effort right now and have a great system to keep people informed which lines have issues and how to work around them. They have websites to check and very clear P.A. systems announcing the issues in all stations. Usually they appear to only close portions of lines on weekends with details on how to bus around the closures.
Tokyo's system is also clean and MUCH BIGGER than NYCs. The reason it doesn't appear that way is because of who get's to define it. Tokyo has 10 independent transit companies running 55 lines through Tokyo. Some are labeled as trains vs subway even though they're the same trains running on the same tracks. For example the Toyoko-line train line becomes both the Hibiya-line (subway) or the Fukutoshi-line (subway) depending on which train is coming down the track. Same cars, no one gets off the train where it becomes one vs the other. The system called "Tokyo Subway" is just one of those 10 companies (possibly 2).
My only point the fact that other similar sized systems can update and keep their trains clean means NYC has no excuse.

No you don't have a "right" to privacy actually. The law might say you do but it's certainly not a natural right. Nothing in nature protects your privacy. Whereas other than force, nothing in nature prevents me from seeing, remembering and sharing.
The self-entitled is the person that thinks their unnatural right to privacy outweighs others natural rights to sight, sound, memory, and sharing.
I don't think my policy will backfire. Rather I think it's inevitable. Try to fight against it and you'll fail.
I'm not wearing Google Glass. I'm having my blind eyes replaced with digital eyes and my disabled brain augmented with digital memory.
I'm not "Recording" you. I'm "remembering" you. I just happen to either (a) have digital augmentation or (b) have equipment to read my memories (c) or both.
I will politely tell you go shove it. You have no right to tell me what I can remember or how I can remember it whether I see it with organic eyes or digital eyes, hear it with organic ears or digital ears and store it in organic memory or digital memory. You also have no right to tell me who can I share my memories with or how I share them whether with analog audio or digital audio, whether with analog transmission or digital transmission.
The rest of us will augment. First it will start with people that can't see or can't hear or can't remember things well, then it will continue to most of the rest of us. It's only a matter of time. Just like we augmented our skin with clothing, our feet with shoes, our brains with slide rules, then calculators, then computers, we'll do the same with sight, sound, and memory.
If you're not ready for that too bad for you.
I do not think this phrase "any account" means what you think it means. I suspect I can not transfer money into or out of my Japanese accounts. Something I would love to be able to do.
I'd really like to see someone start OSSEA, the Open Source Space Exploration Association. Get Neil Degrasse Tyson as the spokesperson and a few other space and science luminaries and use kickstarter or similar to find each project. Accept volunteers. Put all data collected online.
No idea if it would work but I use would be neat to see them try. I'd donate money and possibly donate time as well being open source
I would like all my reviews to show up publically when people search for stuff. That's why I wrote the reviews. I've put reviews on Amazon, TripAdvisor, Yelp, Booking.com, etc... When a product or service has been outstanding I want others to know it worked for me. When a product or service sucks I want to help steer people away from them.
Google's implementation seems great. I can choose to review something, I can choose to make it public or private or share it with specific people like "family" so that 6 months later when my mom is looking for a digital camera and types "digital camera" into google she seems my reviews. That sounds awesome to me.
Of course if Google only shows positive reviews that would be bad but AFAICT that's not what they're doing. I've certainly googled for stuff and seen 1 and 2 star ratings.
When I was growing up (70s) in Southern California you could register your bike with the police. They'd stamp a number into it. I had my bike stolen 3 times, got it back from the police twice. Since it was registered they called us when they found it.
Same in Japan far more recently. Bought a bike, registered it with the police, go stolen, got it back from the police since it was registered they knew how to contact me.
In other words, this seems like a solvable problem for the most part. If Finland wants it to work they need just need to require people to register their bikes, with contact info, at the time of sale just like people have to register cars when they're sold.
That might not help if the thieves file off the numbers but my experience is they don't do that enough so registering still makes sense.
It should be even easier now since back then it was paperwork but nowadays it could easily be done online with smartphones requiring far less manpower to deal with registration.
