They've got an RPi image you can download, slap on a card, and be up and running with a USB mic and something to handle the audio out.
Seems to me like the FSF should pay more attention to what is already going on.
Trump cares what people think of him.
Trump cares what some people think of him.
No, he won because there's a whole swatch of pout and out stupid people in the middle of the country.
But then I realized it was 100% accurate.
English is awesome.
We're talking about EGO. We outweigh everyone else added together.
Did you not notice???
And Trump didn't stop there! Remind me, who's his pick for Secretary of Education, again?
I am afraid you are more then a little wrong. For example, in British Columbia around half the lodgepole pine have been consumed by beetles. Why? Because it has not gone below 40 degC in the interior for the decade or two. Takes going below 40 degC for a week to kill the buggers. This has decimated the forest industry and put many people out of work. And this is just one example - wait until the glaciers are gone and Calgary is out of water.
Climate change actually hits northern countries the hardest. While the US might experience an average increase of 1 degC, Canada will experience an average increase of 3. And while an increase in temperature can be pleasant, if the local infrastructure and environment were not designed (or evolved) to handle it then it brings disaster. Some reservoirs go dry while other areas flood. And half the problems will be such that we can not predict them coming - like the pine beetle example.
That's BS; most people pirate stuff because they don't want to pay, plain and simple, and for everyone that insists it's only to "try" content, and that they buy it if it's good, they represent a tiny fraction of people, and 99% of the ones claiming it are f#@kling liars.
You missed his sarcasm, he was joking about your incorrect use of percentages (i.e. 2/3rds is 100% more than 1/3rd).
Would you imagine the pain trying to talk to one of these things (if they had an AI), or using one through a touch interface ?
Mr Toilet banishes waste with the power of wind and ghosts!
A law to the extent that "no autonomous vehicle shall be used to transport passengers or cargo for hire within the limits of the city. Violators shall forfeit the vehicle and pay a $250,000 fine" still supports the autonomous car, and would make the unions happy. Most big cities are deeply blue, and deep blue areas are the places where unions still have any kind of foothold and still exercise power.
Again, I think you're just being unrealistic in your assessment of how easy it will be to displace things like taxi unions.
If I were building a giant fleet of autonomous robot cars, guess which markets I would absolutely flood with them as soon as they were ready? Any markets that tried to block my human driver efforts today...
There's a gaping hole in your logic: governments that can block your human driver efforts could (would) also block your autonomous vehicles.
ATT is gone, the company bearing the name today is southern bell company, SBC. ATT split itself up and sold all the pieces, SBC bought the name.
Someone else noted that you got the particular baby bell wrong, but seriously, how can you say "this isn't AT&T." It's a bunch of AT&T successor companies that merged back together.
"It's not the Empire, it's the First Order. Sure they've got stormtroopers, and TIE fighters, and Star Destroyers, and evil jedi/sith with their red lightsaber blades, and yeah, they've got an even bigger death star and they're blowing up planets, their Vader analog is running around with Vader's fucking head in his sock drawer, but they don't have Bell Labs and Verizon, so it's obviously not AT&T."
