Nope, not a joke.
Stop the world, I want to get off.
Ask the 1.4 billion Facebook users, of whom probably 1.3 billion give accurate details.
It's more like an electronic sulking machine.
Sidelights are in the main useless, being like a glow-worm in a jam jar on a lot of cars. There is no excuse for not using dipped headlights if you want to be seen. Things have moved on, you don't 'save the battery' by using sidelights instead of headlights!
...before the system alerts the blues & twos brigades? Pretty sure they'll be less than impressed if they're called out to every minor shunt or bollard bump.
Self drive is a solution looking for a problem.
What happens when it encounters something that it hasn't been programmed to recognise and avoid? Hopefully it will default to 'get-the-hell-out-of-the-way' mode, but given the number of patches that software requires to 'fix' all the undocumented features , that's not a given.
I am deeply, deeply uneasy about this. I know driving standards are pretty poor, but I still don't trust a 'puter to do it instead of a human.
..they can bloody well come and ask me to my face!
Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder?
that I want an internet connected car doing the driving for me.
"Before I apply the brakes, please watch this safety video. Video can be skipped in 5 seconds....."
Not a lot but it's all I can afford to pay.
Apart from those who despise everyone but themselves.
What's wrong with the much more palatable crème fraiche?
Douglas Quaid: Where am I?
Johnnycab: You're in a Johnnycab.
Douglas Quaid: I mean, what am I doing here?
Johnnycab: I'm sorry. Would you please rephrase the question?
Douglas Quaid: How did I get in this taxi?
Johnnycab: The door opened. You got in.
[Johnnycab rolls his eyes]
What about the following morning, shall we tactfully call it the 'exit plan'?
I'm afraid you lost me halfway through the opening sentence!
*It's a big swirly orange thing in space!
...it's Natural Stupidity that will be the downfall of the human race.
Most sellers now are businesses, the sellers of 'second hand crap' have faded into a minority, driven out by scamming buyers, the lack of ability to leave negative feedback about a bad buyer, and the decision to charge the seller a %age of the postal charges.
I also have a smartphone with a large screen. At my age I need bigger screens not ruddy smaller.
I only ever opt for the free apps anyway. If there's a feature I want that's only in the paid for version then I usually seek out another freebie that gives me that feature. Guess I'm just ludicrously tight, or is it too many years of freetarderyness© :)
What exactly is involved in server maintenance? Oil and filters and re-gap the plugs?
I'm guessing it's Cartoon Network (something)
Best plug-in I've ever installed.
They used to leave these things up, trot out some corporate guff about right to know, public awareness etc. Perhaps now they are starting to listen to their outraged products they'll start to respond about requests to take down the child and animal abuse pages, videos, etc.
Bugger, missed that bit. :(
Squirreled away under the seat, on silent, you have a perfect tracker should your expensive motorcycle be stolen. People have been touting this idea for some time, using an old forgotten phone from the back of the drawer.
I used to shudder at the thought of these things beetling about unattended, but then I realised that at last, German car manufacturers will be able to ensure that their indicators do actually get used.
An awful lot of money to play Candy Crush.....
Just using the web browser now. If they remove that option then hell, I can always wait until I get home to find out my friends highest score on the latest faddy game, or see a photo of their lunch......
...going to question if there really is a market for this app, but then I remembered about all the fart generator apps and decided not to ask.
Hors d'ouvres or dumplings :)
...as my local BBC radio station keeps telling us.
I really wish I could upvote this more than once.
That game is on mobile devices already.
Am I correct in assuming that all their games are a rip off of Bejewelled, just with different graphics?
Because windows doesn't have any dodgy applications does it............
Getting a little big for their boots with only one (admittedly very) successful game behind them aren't they?
Is this the same ice that keeps trapping research boats?
And if your aunt develops balls, she'll become your uncle.
That we should be so lucky, we're still stuck with IE8.
No, but you could wear a burkha.
Dont forget to put the points on your Clubcard so Tesco know what products to push at you.
See where your plan to knobble the cameras falls down?
People dying from a multitude of diseases look on in wonder.............
but my favourite torrent search engine is Google............
Beat me to the dickhead pun :)
The last thing I'm concerned about is semen quality, so shove another couple of rashers under the grill for me.
