Slashdot is... going down the toilet?
Yeah, let's go with that one.
I have a notepad on my desk that has printed at the top of each page: "Teamwork is a bunch of people doing what I say."
It's supposed to be a joke.
For a while lots of telemarketing scams were located in Texas. Multiple people around the U.S. had tried to sue them for fraud, but the Attorney General of the victim's state would say they had no jurisdiction, and the Texas AG would say that his mandate was to defend citizens of Texas.
So as long as you made the call from Texas into another state, no one would take the case.
Note that yes, there were clearly interstate commerce laws being broken, but no one would prosecute.
This is piercing the corporate veil. If the precedent stands, look for lawsuits targeting corporate officers individually for the actions of the corporation.
Note that I don't think that's necessarily a bad idea, but probably not what they intend with this.
What's that happening from midnight to 3 am over Turkey and Romania?
Ever heard of containerization [wikipedia.org]?
Standardized cars will go over with the market about as well as standardized housing has.
I didn't say standardized cars, I said standardized transportation. Do you hold out for a specific model of Uber? Or taxi? Or bus?
If I want a car, I want a particular car. If I want to get from point A to point B I mostly care what it costs and how long it will take.
Transportation is to driving as shipping is to luxury cruise.
2) Requires everyone standardize their cars to a particular drone. Not going to happen.
3) Requires everyone standardize their cars to a particular chassis, and more to the point bans monocoque. Not going to happen.
4) Requires everyone to use other peoples' chassis. Regardless of their condition. Without even knowing what condition they're going to be in.
Ever heard of containerization? Kind of swept through the shipping industry and completely changed truck, train and ship industries. No reason it couldn't happen to transportation.
