Comment Makes Planning Trips to the Mall a Breeze! (Score 5, Funny) 64

Let's see, 15 minutes to enjoy a macchiato at the coffee shop, 3 hours desperately searching for items that are never stocked locally and must be ordered online, 10 minutes in one of those crap coin-operated massage chairs, and then YUP! Google says the food court should have cleared out enough to give me a running start at flinging myself to a merciful death from the 3rd story balcony.

Right. Because this is such a uniquely Apple issue. That whole brouhaha about crappy USB C cables and the damage they cause, or all those fly-by-night USB multi-port chargers that overheat and catch fire, those must have been some sort of fever dream I had.

But this did give you an opportunity to be smug, so at least some good came out of it.

The end of 2017, mark your calendar! Los Angeles to Times Square, no human touching the controls even ONCE! It's so, so, awesome. In the time that it takes some other tech company to add some cosmetic widgets and minor features to their mobile OS, Tesla will create a truly thinking machine, test it thoroughly, and demonstrate in on our roads. Yeah, next time I hear that some friggin' data entry system is going to be years behind schedule, I am going to flip out. Clearly, complex software has been trivial ALL THIS TIME! Those software pikers have been *malingering*!
