There's no reason to upgrade every year or two like there used to be. That's got to hurt their business even more than tablets and netbooks.
Selling reliable components hurts business? uh ohz
P.S. The game also doesn't support steering wheel controllers. A driving game. Seriously.
That's just lazy.
Lazy? Negligent maybe. Or stupid. Or something.
It's great to see something get this kind of fuel economy, to see where we can take the technology, but it might not be entirely honest to call it a "car".
You could call it a car. You'd just have to make sure to call it a terrible, useless, or impractical car to be accurate.
I mean, sure it has good fuel economy, but all other relevant aspects of a car were completely sacrificed in order to attain it. They apparently even used the lightest driver they could possibly find, an 11 year-old girl, in order to make the numbers even higher.
I wonder how long this will be "at least a year away."
According to the video in the article, the company is releasing "a competitively priced consumer camera" in 2011, ie no more than six months from now.
The accurate term that should be used in the TOS is "location data" and not just "location statistics". "Data" would contain (precise or approximate) location coordinates while "statistics" should contain only numbers pertaining to locations e.g. "user x was located within 100 meters of location y during month z".
Those "numbers pertaining to locations" sure sound like approximate coordinates to me.
How will this technology go everywhere I want it to? I do drive places now which don't actually have proper paved roads.
Unconventional roads don't appear to be a problem. It drove around in the desert just fine.
That is the whole point. If he just wore it like a backwards headlamp, he could take it off at his convenience.
He could cover the installed camera at his convenience just as easily. The only point is publicity.
Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
