That doesn't shock anyone. They just don't want to hear it, because it makes it harder to dismiss everyone that disagrees with them.
The real joke of it all is that we have, or had, and few of the vehicles listed. They just didn't look exactly like the artists rendition on the cover of PopSci.
My dad was a plumber for 30 years. That just happened to be after getting his masters. Most of the programmers and tech drones I've known couldn't hold a candle to him.
Somewhere along the line we decided that any programmer, IT guy, etc. are somehow smarter than anyone else. We're generally not. Learning to Google a solution to a problem is no more brilliant than anyone else working out how to do their profession.
If only Obama were the actual socialist that a certain media company says he is, you might actually hate him less. But he's not: the bastard is corruptly selling his DoJ to the highest bidder in a way that would horrify Marx and Engels. If only GWB were the conservative he ran as, you would hate him less, but at least your cold uncaring government would be cheap. But he wasn't: somehow the dimwit managed to commit to more spending of public funds than LBJ and FDR combined, funnelling it into contractors' pockets at everyone's expense.
Shit man, I'm totally going to steal this paragraph from you, intact. That was a great way to illustrate what a lot of us have been saying for a long time... politics is bullshit.
Nicely done. Really.
The proposal, which the Raleigh News & Observer reports was unanimously approved by the state’s Senate Commerce Committee on Thursday, would apply to all car manufacturers, but the intended target is clear. It’s aimed at Tesla, the only U.S. automaker whose business model relies on selling cars directly to consumers, rather than through a network of third-party dealerships.
[The article adds] it’s easy to understand why some car dealers might feel a little threatened: Tesla’s Model S outsold the Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7 Series, and Audi A8 last quarter without any help from them. If its business model were to catch on, consumers might find that they don’t need the middle-men as much as they thought."

However, the Pentagon and other federal agencies are already using those airwaves for everything from flying drones and surveillance to satellites and air combat training.
All the more reason to hand it over to civilian mobile phone use.
You think they'd just stop flying drones, call off air combat training, and neglect to send up replacement satellite hardware?
Say, can you write a proposal for how this will save oodles of money upgrading IE8 on 10000 machines to IE10, even tho it will brake the internal apps of about 15 different departments? Maybe you can also write 15 separate proposals for them to renew their contracts with the people who originally wrote the apps, and proposals for the cases where the original dev is long gone and we'll need to do a full replacement.
So the excuse is, "But maintaining an important app involves work."? What someone really ought to write is a termination notice.
Anyone that has a large businesses' critical applications tied to decade+ old technology has grossly underperformed in their position. And if they inherited that mess, it was their first priority to clean up after former, horribly inept individual, with the explicit goal of dealing with the elephant in the room. If they still don't have a plan to extricate the business from a miserable position, where it's their job to do so, they're simply not doing their job.
From a tech perspective, the idea of having anything tied to IE8 is a little ridiculous, as anything written at the time should've been spec'd for cross-browser support, or at worst, require minor rendering bugfixes. Everyone knew better by then.
Anyone still asleep at their desk while a company relies on IE6 should be terminated as soon as possible, no questions asked, and preferably never employed in tech again. That's an absurd situation, for which there's no imaginable excuse.
Yeah none of this really has anything to do with cloud services. It's just a shift to a subscription model.
The cloud part was obviously thrown in as a marketing thing to make it more palatable (which is sad), and aside from the throw-away storage, has nothing to do with any of this.
As is pointed out in the summary, this is not the first of these. And as far as I know none of the ones we've heard about have been shut down for stupid reasons.
Let's keep the doom and gloom under our hats for now, and just wish them luck.
I didn't know Lenovo owned them. This reminds me a bit of the Cisco+Linksys pairing. Putting a respectable name on a budget line of products doesn't seem to help, it just makes you less sure of anything with the respectable name.
Yeah, this seems like a simple enough problem to solve. Well, simple for new installations.
That video, which is the first I've ever seen on this, mentions that the location is about 1,000 ft (300m) away, but it looks like the distance needs to be greater than that.
I see, so that was a change in price for illicit goods, and the safer alternative in Afghanistan is a good replacement? I don't know much about farming, but it sounds like an "everyone wins" scenario, to me. Well... everyone but the bad guys.
So, no, it's not just an industry report behind this. It might be *gasp* actual science.
Fracking is a bullshit political issue now, not a technology issue. Nobody is interested in real information anymore... only rhetoric.
Curious. Doesn't the price per bag for fertilizer going from $4 to $100 make it prohibitively expensive for it's normal use as fertilizer?
Was there a considerable reduction in the number of IED's since the price skyrocketed?
That is like an official coming out and saying that some new Drone over in Iraq that can be taking control over by yelling your name and location into radio ch-4.
No. We have no reason to think it's anything like that.
The important takeaway is that the Navy is actually checking their shit. The deficiencies in network security were found by Navy pen testers, determined to be "not severe enough to prevent the deployment", the results are classified, and they're working on improving them.
That's how things get done. Test and improve, all the time, because no part of any complex system is, or ever will be, perfect.
