It's been a publicised setup feature since at least Windows 2000, WIndows XP and Windows Server 2003!
Description of the Windows Setup Function Keys
The guidelines for smartphones call for features able to differentiate between drivers and passengers within cars, so that only the driver is shown a simplified and restricted view.
Which leads to the question: how exactly do you differentiate between a driver and a passenger?
Windows, of course, will throw a blue fit if you try this
What makes you say that, exactly? I just used gparted Live last week to migrate my Windows 10 installation from an old Intel 180GB SSD to a new Kingston 480G SSD and had no problems whatsoever. I wouldn't expect moving drives between identical hardware to be any different, but systems with different motherboards, NICs, GPUs, can all be booted in Safe Mode to install the required drivers.
Apps don't execute code. Since these idiots don't undertstand this, dismiss it as the nonsense it is.
FYI iOS apps are compiled to binary code, which is why you can't use any dynamic runtime code generation on them, and so *could* be vulnerable to this type of attack. i.e.: from C#-based Xamarin apps you can use Reflection.Emit to generate code at runtime on Android, OSX and Windows (which leverages the JIT features of
The accelerator pedal is just an input sensor, for example.
You don't say? Find me a current model car that still has a manual linkage between the accelerator pedal and the carburettor butterfly.
Someone out there thinks it's important, too -- over a year ago it was answering a billion questions a week, just for iPhone users (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/videos/2015-06-08/siri-how-many-questions-do-you-answer-per-minute-).
Seriously? When have you ever asked Siri a question and gotten the right answer *the first time*? I'd wager 80% of those questions are repeats because Siri kept fucking up. That seems to be its failure rate for me, anyway, especially when I'm trying to dictate messages while driving in a car.
Those who can't write, write manuals.
