What do you mean "initially".

Car makers are selling Autopilot knowing full well that the people behind the wheel will be texting/surfing on their phones or in car entertainment systems.

If the system they sell can't drive on black ice, or in a major snow storm and gets into an accident - the company should be held 100 % liable.

No EULA's and No "Sign this giving up your right" - the ONUS is on them - And if the SYSTEM isn't ready for a car that will be on on the road for 50 years or more (as some cool cars are ) and working well - then perhaps they might rethink advertising it as "AutoPilot".

Same here. Our 2100TN is still running like new. I don't know that I'd be able to find a newer model as reliable.

I've had pretty good luck the past 10 or so years with a LaserJet 1320. Quick, built-in duplexer, built-in PostScript, works with everything. A couple years ago, I was given a JetDirect 175x, so it's now on the LAN. (Had some other network-to-USB adapters before the JetDirect that didn't always work as expected.)

The brand logos have been removed.

In one shot, it looks like they didn't obscure the Apple logo on the printer (upper right corner of the front), though it's so small that you wouldn't have been able to tell that's what it was.

I still have mine from coming up on 32 years ago. It's currently in storage...not sure if it still works, though it did the last time I had it out. It'd almost certainly need a new ribbon, and I think the last of the fanfold paper got chucked a while back. I still have some Apple IIs (and also some Macs now) that can drive it, too. :)

Wish i had mod points but yes. Google keeps "updating" tools that require the latest browser so "older" browsers get phased out. Then they jump in bed with the makers of the browsers to whittle away your ability to stop being tracked or defend against seeing ads.

+1 insightful for you.

Comment Thank you BeauHD for more proof (Score 0, Flamebait) 85

I'm hoping everyone on Slashdot posting here understands what an algorithm actually is.

My guess is they don't, because BeauHD obviously doesn't in his rush to slam trumpet.

To put in layman terms - everything automated takes parameters and creates a result. It's because people make a sorta flowchart that draws on information and slam bam Kazam - outputs a result.

Which is now evil because of Trump.

Whipslash, please, I'm begging.

Tell him to stop shifting the site to SJW and EnviroNazi!
