good luck selling cars with such smart ass contracts then.
It won't be a problem.... Nobody ever reads them anyways. Also, accepting the EULA terms becomes a
requirement not to own the car, But to Activate the software license key which enables the Self-Driving Option.
Don't agree to the EULA, then no AutoPilot for you.
Wait... at the same time as they refuse to remove b0rked PowerShell Aliases for 'Wget' and 'Curl' that mess up people who want to use those utilities, because that would be a "Breaking Change" ?
+Class action prohibited And Binding arbitration with Tesla for any accident that occurs as a result of you operating the vehicle, And a restriction that You may not convey any of your dispute rights or capability to sue us to any insurance company or other 3rd party; any claim must be pursued solely by you, with sworn statement that no insurer or 3rd party will have interest in any settlement paid to you for dispute resolution.
Are those working at all? What sort of condition is required to make 3 different colision detection systems fail all at once?
How about.... Because of the way those systems work, and the way the self-driving system works.. each of those systems is a single point of failure
in some driving situations?
Meaning if just one of those systems goes offline or fails to do its job properly, then there are some crash risks/emergencies which will not be detected, or the self-driving system will not notice.
0. Upcoming global extinction event due to meteor impact combined with the automation of the workfource, outsourcing everyone, laying off 90% of employees in the next 10 years, and paying the rest minimum wage..... US degenerating to a communist state, Hillary seizing all the guns, ISIS bioterrorists deploying global anti-human microbes, launching dirty bombs and mass-executions, and North Korea nuking us all......
May happen before we get all those cool new technologies. Not to be pessimistic about it..... just be realistic. The world is going to hell amidst other good things being worked on.
Hate to break it to you, buddy, but it's still the only infrastructure-free method of global communication, which means it's just as effective as when it was first discovered.
Plasma bomb deployment systems sound like infrastructure to me.
I am sure that radio astronomers would agree with you on that one, as well as oppose this 'plan'
I also oppose this plan, because while it may be beneficial for some communications, It is harmful for others.
ALSO, this is putting environmental conditions at risk.... who knows what the long-term ramifications will be.
Furthermore, altering the earth's atmosphere Or otherwise attempting to jam communications should NOT be permissible methods of messing with an enemy.
Any decentralized solution where an https server knows how to decrypt your friends' data so you can see it in your browser is neither decentralized nor secure.
It's not a complete FB replacement, unless you can view the content in an Android / iPhone App.
Just consider about how the inconvenience of a native application is likely to hinder adoption.
Also, many organizations don't let users install a native application, out of malware concerns.
Quartz today argues that perhaps voice notes is the best alternative to emails
My phone has this cool new feature that lets me automatically convert Voice notes, and Voicemail in particular, directly to text, and e-mails it to me,
so I can read it in my Inbox. Works great. Highly-recommended. For those annoying times when telemarketers leave voicemail, or some co-worker hasn't learned to e-mail yet.
But because it is in a tube, it is much easier to fix.
Yes.... and because it's a tube, you can probably schedule regular preventative maintenance to help make sure mice don't get in; in the first place.
I'm thinking seal completely; pressurize the tube and maintain a slight pressure at all times with an inert gas which is either not breathable to critters, or contains repellents, or enough pesticides to ensure nothing gets in to chew on the cables.
Nothing about your post is insightful. Should probably be modded "naive and reductive".
until you realize that is the perfect transportation mechanism for rats and roaches to infiltrate every part of your city.
Put a wall in the tunnel every 2500 feet or so, requiring a small penetration for each cable passing through, and add a drain to the lowest section of each segment.
There aren't many critters that will live in a small box containing nothing (except cable) to eat, and if all access is sealed under normal conditions, then it's no good as a temporary shelter for most critters either, as the tunnels are likely to be at ground temperature (E.g. 40 or 50 degrees F, which is not conducive to roaches, and rats would either starve to death, or cause a fibre cut, resulting in the town sending the exterminators....).
Well, you can prove the foreiture was unjust, and get it back, but that's a little like getting punched and then 10 years later being allowed to punch back. At that point, the goalposts have probably moved.
That is extremely wrong.
