Comment Re:Who owns your car? (Score 1) 235

The job of the government is to create "solutions" for problems that they create. A self-driving car only needs to replace a human driver-- it doesn't need to become an arm of the state. The police detain people, not cars, so it should be the person's decision. Don't make self-driving cars be at the mercy of the state just because you can!

You don't even have to Read The Fine Article... just Read The Fine Summary to see that "Solar power has gotten so cheap to produce and so competitively priced in the electricity market that it is taking hold even in a state that, unlike California, doesn't offer incentives to utilities to buy or build sun-powered generation."

NOT due to subsidies-- at least not state or local ones.

Comment Can you eat it? (Score 1) 280

Can you eat a picture of food? I'm not understanding.

See, if I make a copy of a sound file or a movie, I can give it to someone and they can listen to it or watch it. That's what media is for: listening or watching.

Isn't food for eating? Is there a large contingent of anorexic foodies who like to buy pretty food, then just look at it?

Apparently, in Germany, if I take a picture of my BMW and post it, BMW can sue me for copyright infringement... although you might believe the i8 is a work of art, I think you're supposed to drive it.

Nothing is finished until the paperwork is done.
