Okay, first of all, this is clearly not news... it's from the freaking Daily Mail, as much a newspaper as the National Enquirer. Yeah, of course people *without* self driving cars who've never seen one before would be nervous. Also, people who've never seen a movie say they would have trouble sitting in a dark room for 2 hours.
What is going on with Slashdot the last couple weeks? I used to come here for no-bullshit-tech-news, and now we have weird Hillary health posts, the pervious article about "Touch Disease" is total rubbish too. They seem to be going 50% total bullshit posts.
I try and avoid HN, because of the comments section, but the editors here should just read over the entries there and copy the good ones. Here, let me do a quick look.
13 hours ago news that Tesla signed a massive contract with the California power grid. TECHNOLOGY NEWS!
3 hours ago Bash 4.4 released. TECHNOLOGY NEWS!
2 hours ago EU Court: Open WiFi Operator Not Liable for Pirate Users. TECHNOLOGY NEWS!
Look, I like this place because there used to be good editorial insight into tech news and all the highlights were covered with little BS or outright bias or weirdness. It was never perfect, but damn it was better than other choices.
But who the hell is the new editor? Did all the good ones leave? Is no one submitting decent news?
