Comment: more excited about V2V (Score 3, Informative) 185

I hope a V2V API is released, I would love to create an app that hops ahead from car to car and reports back the average speed and brake usage of 10 cars 3 miles ahead of me. Real time traffic congestion avoidance would actually be possible. It would also be cool to know that a car 3 ahead of me has just slammed on their breaks (animal/obstacle in the road etc). All kinds of things come to mind.

FTFA "The reason that so many tools have become unwieldy is that they chase after certain values that add complexity but not usefulness to SMB-sized projects"

If the author of the article would just choose his tools more carefully he could have saved himself these weird rants about things that he brings on himself. It's like a bike rider lamenting how uncomfortable his racing bike seat is when he's riding it around the block.

It's well known that cheap android phones have always been bad, and will always be bad. If you want a cheap, reliable phone, Nokia is more than willing to sell you one of its lower end Lumias. And if you want to have a contract, you can even get a high quality iPhone for "free". Why waste time with bottom of the barrel junk?

I had to get a Windows 8 laptop, Surface 2, and Windows phone for work to test an application we're working on. I use OSX and Android day-to-day so from all the stories I expected to have an awful time trying to navigate through windows to even get to the application to start my testing/dev work but I don't see what the big deal is. The interface was intuitive enough for me ...maybe i didn't try to do enough, I just looked at the screen for the app, then click/touch it. :shrug:

I do. I work for a small company and we write all of our tablet apps in JavaScript and wrap them in Cordova. It lets us deploy on iOS, Android, and Windows all at once with minimal effort and cost, which is great for a small dev team. It even makes testing a breeze because I can write all of my functional tests in CasperJS and be reasonably sure that everything is working right prior to handing things off to the test team. Much easier than messing with some junk software like Appium and and writing tests for each mobile platform individually

if i had mod-points i'd give them to you. I wish more people realized that you don't have to be terrified of a gun. I live in Texas and no one seems to care about guns, not here in Dallas, not in Austin, not out West or anywhere. It's just not that big of a deal. Folks you don't have to live in fear, it must be exhausting to have to constantly worry about whether or not everyone you see owns a rifle.

Seems like a Google Glass app could identify traffic lights and changes in their status way down the road while you're paying attention to the car in front of you. Then maybe project a little count down for when the app thinks the next light should turn green/red based on the one prior and the next one. Maybe you could give it feed back like "countdown off by +3 seconds" then the app could log that info along with GPS coords and heading for the next time you're encounter the light.

Round-abouts waste a lot of space. You have that center island that can't be used for anything, while an intersection produces 4 pieces of usable real-estate on the corners with no wasted space in the middle. Also, in an intersection the roads are perpendicular to each other setting up facilitating/enforcing a grid layout for city streets/blocks. All things considered, intersections are more efficient than round-abouts IMO

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
