That is bad.
But a pedestrian isn't going to kill a driver. The driver is going to kill the pedestrian.
As a pedestrian I say great. People shouldn't be texting or checking their phones while driving. While folks might think it's safe at an intersection, I disagree.
I've almost been hit a number of times as drivers inch through a cross walk when they aren't paying attention. Or they turn on red and don't pay attention. It's super dangerous.
How would you feel if I told you every police officer would be wearing these in a couple years coupled with apps that recognize faces and search databases?
Attend a rally for any cause and every law enforcement agency knows.
That's what I'm worried about.
"Ireland is a small country" explains part of the issue of why it costs so much here.
The U.S. is physically huge. Ireland is about the size of one of 50 of the states. Takes a lotta dough to to build a network across the U.S. That and our regulators aren't empowered to stop companies from ripping us off.
What level of access do they have? I need details explaining more. Can they see what you are doing when you are on a cellular network, or when you are on wifi too.
Can they see what you are doing when you are using private browsing? Are they capturing passwords and storing them? Is the device pushing back secure information to them?
Does a VPN prevent tracking?
I expect some things when using a cellphone. Having them essentially listen in on all my communication or interaction with others is not one of them.
I wonder how many Google engineers commented on this thread.
Ive had some pretty nasty side effects from a drug that weren't on the label. It really sucked. I'm still dealing with them.
Let me tell you that if you goto a doctor and say that you think that side effects are related to the drug he put you on and those side effects aren't yet on the label they will treat you like you are crazy. It was really eye openning to see how doctors can talk down to patients. The drug I was taking for example can cause tendons to snap. That was known. The doctor flat out didn't believe that incrediblely painful tendinitis could be related to taking the drug.
It really sucks. I got lucky though because a month later the FDA released a new list of side effects that for this drug that included my ones. Then I got a doctor to pay attention and help me out.
I knew the side effects were related to the drug thanks to a quick google search that showed thousands of other people had experienced the same things that I had. There were literally 100,000 posts in a forum discussing what I had experienced in the previous weeks.
I can't even imagine the complexity when combining two drugs and what havoc that could cause.
Depends on what you consider private, but I would put the Android phone last because of the tight Google integration. At least on the iPhone you can have everything local, not synced to the cloud.
The days of privacy are over for the most part. If you are using cloud services, you can be sure your data is being mined in some way.
I'm waiting to find out that I paid more than Google in taxes.
If only I could pull something so crazy off with my own income, shipping it to two different countries to avoid paying taxes.
Yes. Absolutely. It works.
contractors that are probably charging $300 an hour too.
My boiler broke this past winter and I had to run 2 space heaters a week until it was fixed.
Let me tell you, electrical heat is super expensive. Those space heaters for that week cost more than the 1955 natural gas boiler did in a month.
i forgot facebook should be added to that list too.
just another database tracking all my movements. like at&t, apple and google.
