Comment Re:No, Aumented Reality is the next big thing. (Score 1) 114

But this is something that good storytelling already does. Heck, you can be immersed in a different world with words written on a sheet of paper.

True, but then the movie and tv industries shouldn't exist. I'm not sure what logic you use to draw the line at VR.

Who do you want to be creative in their work? The person putting together your fast food hamburger? The person changing the brakes on your car? The person collecting your garbage?

And when you do come up with a good answer, that will be a job that's not going to be replaced by automation any time soon. But for 99% of jobs, having any element of creativity is a disadvantage.

NYC is a special case, and I really don't think it's especially a black problem.

I'm white, and when I was in NYC, I tried to catch a cab from my Manhattan hotel to La Guadia. Or to be honest, the hotel doorman tried for me since I simply couldn't do it. Cab after cab would just take off when they heard the destination.

NYC is *not* typical of American.

Are you seriously implying that Apple announced a product would be on the market the next month without having the design done and production well underway?

You really think they would expect to finish a design, get it produced in China and into customers hands in America in six weeks?

There is now shoving though, it was done on September 1st. This delay is a 100% manufacturing and logistics f-up. And that was supposed to be Timmy's specialty as the former COO and chief bean counter. If the idiot can't even get that right, what use is he?

If you don't own a license to do whatever you want to do with the car for the lifetime of the car, you'd have to be a complete idiot to buy said car.

Up until 5 minutes ago, I was a Tesla fan. Now I'm saying anyone who buys a Tesla is a complete idiot. What a great move this is for them.

Fair enough if you have no ties to a place. Personally I don't see why I'd want to retire at 50 to move away from my family, kids, friends, etc and start over. Working until 65, having $3 million instead of $1.2 (without contributing another cent to my savings - so living a lot more luxuriously) and then staying near all the people in my life sounds a lot better to me.
