We get it, you're an idiot stuck in the past. I'm sure we can find you a rotary phone for your home too while we're at it.
$350 for a working dev kit is expensive? You and I must live in vastly different worlds.
But not before storing this metadata along with your present location and any other personal information they can get you to give them access to.
When will people learn?
Now throw in all the building repairs, property maintenance, land taxes, etc. It's going to be a ridiculously long time before there's any return, if ever.
It's more like a charitable act than a sound business decision.
I appreciate the end result, but it would be so much better if he was doing this because he wanted to do it and not as a revenge tactic to spite his neighbours. Even though they say that's not what it's about, that's really what this reads like, and I worry that the tenants might be the ones that pay the price because George decided to start a small war with them.
I'm not sure how he expects to raise 30B on something that only benefits one specific demographic. All successful kickstarter campaigns are for products that could potentially benefit anyone willing to plunk down their money.
It won't matter. Initial negative experience will color all future opinions. Apple really screwed the pooch on this one.
I was beginning to write a lengthy rebuttal, but then I realized something fundamentally important.
You're absolutely correct.
He's one person. Frankly his views on software are outmoded, outdated, and far too rigid. He's not really the advocate I want any more because he's too much like a zealot.
This is more your inexperience talking. You can do everything possible to instil a sense of civility in your children and still have little monsters.
The problem here is you think parenting is an easy job. Newsflash: everyone who doesn't have kids thinks parenting is an easy job. Once you have your own your opinions will not be anything like they are now.
"raising boys and girls in a home environment that teaches them to interact with each other in a civil manner"
You've obviously never had kids. The more you have, the more chaotic and uncivil it gets.
Sometimes it's not a woman either. Except now we've got quotas to maintain.
"An all girls environment is reasonably necessary for the school to improve the self-confidence of girls in their academic abilities"
No it most certainly is fucking not. By depriving either sex of opposite sex interaction you are just disadvantaging them for when it comes time to work in the real world where you won't be gender segregated. Bullshit like this really makes me think these people are idiots.
Most modern vehicles record telemetry already. That black box data can be used to help determine what the cause of an accident was. This is just an evolutionary step in that technology.
You could see it as bad, but you could also see it as making it easier to prove you weren't at fault when an accident occurs. I personally wouldn't want it, but it's the sort of thing one should examine from all sides before making a snap judgement. I'd find it particularly interesting to install in police cars. Oh, you were doing 90kph in a 50 zone with your police cruiser with your lights off? The system has just issued you a speeding ticket.
