Comment This unsolved crimes include yours (Score 2) 217

We live in such a complex web of laws now that we are all breaking them every day... so if the government can on demand browse through your phone they WILL find evidence of some crime. Especially Slashdot readers I'd warrant.

So basically what the government wants is an easy way to harass or lock-up anyone it deems a nuisance for any reason,

Might as well ask if they'd like to lose their pilot's license. They're required by law (and ethics) to always be prepared to take control away from the Autopilot, in a fraction of a second.

So what is the purpose of autopilot then? Specifically, what is the purpose of autopilot when it doesn't prevent you from running broadside into a truck?

Forgot to mention. The car instructions say AutoPilot is not to be used where there are crossroads. In the Florida instance in question there were crossroads.

"Not to be used where there are crossroads, trucks painted a light color or other vehicles of any kind."

This is Elon Musk's "You're holding it wrong!" moment.

Your delusion levels are high.

Tell you what: pull out $100 US anywhere in the world and see if you find any takers. THAT'S how much credibility the US treasury and the Federal Reserve have. I've got a 500,000,000 dinar note from when Serbia was in hyperinflation (Nicola Tesla's picture!) and people were burning them for fuel. That's never happened, and will never happen, in the US (with a particular caveat mentioned below).

Right now, Euro bonds are paying negative interest. At least at the moment, the dollar is still king worldwide.

Now, if a certain vulgar talking yam becomes president, that might change, but for now, everybody wants dollars. Even the silly fuckers at Infowars are putting money into US treasuries. Alex Jones will blow you for $20 US.

I doubt that Apple wants to become the world's biggest battery company.

Why do you not think they already are? With over a billion iPhones sold, hundreds of millions of iPads, hundreds of millions of laptops... few companies on earth can surpass Apple on battery manufacturing and research and most importantly charging and management firmware. Not even Tesla.

Honestly what company on earth makes greater use of advanced batteries than Apple today?

This will happen someday, but maybe not as soon as people think.

Interesting to see how people continuously underestimate Apple despite ample proof to the contrary.
