So you do it with a local AI and sensors. Sorta like a self-driving car. Great. Let me know when it's bulletproof in a 2D environment and I'll consider the 3D version. Let's remember that a groundcar can reasonably be operated manually by most people. Letting untrained pilots fly higher than three feet off the ground will require the addition of a new category to the Darwin awards.
Too bad. I really wanted a flying car.
(1): Some form of secure (preferably cloud-stored) backup/restore mechanism with appropriate encryption and access protection mechanisms, and
(2): A convenient, easy to trigger yet unlikely to be accidentally triggered mechanism to locally wipe the hardware. Factory reset plus cache clear should do the trick.
I'll wager there were emails requesting that customers at least be exhorted to "use only Samsung manufactured and approved chargers" - and since we've all known certain Android apps to eat battery like candy, I'll wager there were more than a few internal emails warning that certain apps could be dangerous as well.
The Bene Gesserit understand the correct response. The courts need to tell Samsung: "You will pay."

I note that nowadays, ISIS refers to something else. I wonder what ever happened to Samsung's ISIS?
But you know, just when I thought it was safe to go back in the internet, Comcast flashed my router. Suddenly, even with wifi explicitly turned "off", there was the XFINITY free hotspot, just advertising that any wardrivers with a valid or hacked Comcast account should park near my place.
Anybody ever see what the built-in (internal) antenna on an Arris cable modem/router looks like? It's just a little green piece of circuit board, and the connector just comes right off without any excess tugging or pulling. I do think Comcast misses me, though - they seem to send hits downstream to my cable modem/router several times a day. It's vaguely frustrating to hit these forty to fifty second network outages from them because they just can't believe nobody is using my free wifi SSID.
But I regulated Comcast.
