As it would be rather difficult to force someone to put an invisible government backdoor in an open source source project, does this bill mean that companies will be forced to put backdoors in proprietary components only, violate the GPL by publishing a modified version without providing access to their modifications or replace GPL component with a different component upon government request?
Can a government bill demand people to lie? If not a simple question "Did you put a backdor in your product" would have to result in "no" or "under the penalty of prison I'm not allowed to comment". No reasonable company would shoot themselves in the foot with the 2nd answer unless they're forced to.
Engineers who work on steering, brakes, transmission and other core systems in the car are much more experienced than those who code up an entertainment system. The core engineers cost more, use much stricter (therefore longer and more costly) processes and so on. It would be wasteful to throw all that experience, time and money into non-critical system that doesn't need it. Jeep, quite rightfully, did sensible thing there. But running all systems on shared core or bus was asking for trouble. And they got what they asked for.
Maybe next time they should try drive a pacemaker from an Android phone they also use to play games watch kitten videos, you know, to save the cost of the pacemaker's own microcontroller and battery. What can possibly go wrong?
The scientists of the day couldn't really use his system for anything productive
Don't be silly. Kepler was, by all means, a scientist and he based his "Mysterium Cosmographicum" on Copernicus' "De revolutionibus orbium coelestium". Do you really find Kepler's work non-productive?
BTW, both Kepler and Newton were wrong too.
Copernicus came up with quite blasphemous idea that the Earth was not the centre of the universe. He changed completely bonkers model of the Solar System to vaguely correct one, with the Sun in the centre. Copernicus' model predicted the observed backward movement of the planets and few other things. Kepler was one of the few scientists who did not reject the heliocentric model. Kepler refined Copernicus' model 50 years later by changing the reference point from the centre of Earth's orbit to the centre of the Sun and by making orbits elliptical. Newton corrected Kepler's big mistake nearly 100 years later, by coming up with the idea that the gravity, not geometry, is the key ingredient.Yet Newton's equations are wrong by giving the certain result rather than the probability distribution, which makes Newton's work useless for quantum physicists.
I don't get the idea why the 3 scientists came up with major milestones in science but only 2 of them are worthy.
