I'm waiting for inflatable screens.
Like a regular to small size phone but for those times you need something bigger than 5" it has a little valve you can blow into when which will inflate a screen that is bigger than a tablet. When you are done, just squish the air out and stick it back in your pocket.
Two big problems:
(1) You can not rely on cert revocation to protect from bad actors because revocation can't happen in real time. No matter what, each car is gong to need to be able to deal with bad actors, and once you've got that logic in there, the value of revoking their status is small.
(2) As a side effect this system will create unique public IDs for every vehicle, making surveillance 100x easier than it is now with license plate cams which are already way too egregious.
I was going to say that they return Futurama quotes but then I checked and they are gone. When did that happen?
When the devs starting getting real head?
If it's to help the phone survive drops, then that's what they should talk about.
I can't imagine a reason I would ever want to bend my phone.
Now if I were planning on going to prison, I could see how a bendable phone might make it easier to smuggle one into my cell, but it's still not going to be very comfortable, going in or coming out. And god forbid I get a call while my phone is hidden in a body cavity. I keep my phone on vibrate and it could get very embarrassing.
Almost all law involving minors is based around the ancient notion that people don't start thinking until someone else tells them to. Until that time, the father/owner/king knows best, right?
Yep, that's right. Except the word is "teach" not "tell". Methods of teaching have improved enormously in the last century or two, for example Tomas Edison's father disciplined him with a public beating in the town square. It was not an uncommon punishment for misbehaving children. I grew up in the 60's, a time when both teachers and parents would regularly punish children with a cane or a strap.
I don't agree with either "teaching method" but I still love my dad dearly. Even as a child I knew he did not enjoy disciplining his kids with the cane, however he believed with all his heart he was doing the "right thing". It was a reflection of how he was raised (near Manchester UK, during WW2), "anything that doesn't kill you will make you stronger".
The thought of abandoning Tomas to the law of the jungle would horrify Edison's father, When you have kids of your own you'll understand that in most cases it has nothing to do with "ownership" and everything to do with wanting the best future possible for your child. The rock spiders crawling all over the honey pot in TFA did not go there with best interests of the "child" in mind, they went there for sexual-gratification.
OTOH, once a child hits puberty then morality and intent becomes very fuzzy which is why arbitrary post-pubescent age limits never really work as advertised. Such laws are intended for use by the parents and guardians as a legal weapon against predators, but are often used against a slightly older boyfriend the parents simply think is "not good enough".
Oh, and Clinton didn't inhale, either.
As Gore Vidal (who knew Clinton at collage) explained. Clinton is one of those people who can't inhale smoke, so he ate his share. In other words Clinton was technically correct, which we all know is the best kind of correct..

What about tentaclier?
I thought is was 131. My old Mazda MX-6 was 131 or 132 - it was in the electrical schematics. Found it once on I70 west of Baltimore. It took noticeably more time than the Tesla to achieve fuel cut-off speed than the Tesla.
No, there's no way a Citation could hit 132 MPH
This isn't some superhero cartoon, where the "good" guy nabs the "bad" guy and puts him in jail no matter how much the bad guy tries to kill him. The US does not have magical super powers and a team of writers to get us out of every jam.
Time to grow up.
I promise you that the next military attack on this country will not come from within the government. Based on the history of the last 25 years, I'd say you've got a 50/50 chance of the next big terrorist attack coming from a US citizen or a foreign national. It's more like 80:20 (in favor of the attack coming from a US citizen) for a smaller scale terrorist attack, but only if you discount mass shootings as simple domestic crimes which don't count as terrorism, as that would make a US citizen attacking other citizens in a terrorist/mass shooting event being nearly 100% probability.
