ITU given keys to autonomous car standards process

Lost all faith...

Re: It's not their party

The ITU (remember it will require comm's) are anarchic, slow and not particularly transparent, but their standards do tend to be that, even when you have US standards vs rest of the world standards, they are pretty good at getting them to work together.

As for

"In the real world human-driven cars do a remarkably reliable job of working together"

I think the road death tolls would say we're pretty shit at it.

Pakistan's YouTube ban may end after Google removes anti-Muslim vid

Lost all faith...
Silver badge
Mushroom

Re: Couple of questions

* If this video was not the cause of the ban then what really was ?

-On 17 September 2012, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) ordered access to YouTube blocked, after the website did not remove the trailer of Sam Bacile's Innocence of Muslims, a film insulting Islam and eventually resulting in a ban due to YouTube's non compliance.[45]

* Is YouPorn also banned, it's not really suitable for the children of <deity> ?

-Main article: Pornography in Pakistan

-Pornography is illegal. It is not easily accessible, and the Government has put a 100% ban on internet -website containing such material since November 2011.[41] The list of banned pornographic websites is updated on an ongoing basis.

* What percentage of Pakistani's actually have web access ( over and above a 56k connection) ?

-10.0% of the population (2012)

-25 Nov 2013 - The average internet downloading speeds were 2.29 Mbps during this period while the uploads stood at just 1.01 Mbps

* According to the logic of these people, why would Pakistan even need the internet

-Well obviously they have less of a need than you, as you are too fucking stupid / bigoted to use it to expand your knowledge a little. Maybe a little less time cracking one off over YouPorn vids and little more time talking to the terrible brown people, or at least trying read and research a bit, may help, but I doubt it.

Not sure where you work...

...but we have 50 devs "making" our own stuff, sometime we take a vendors products, and customise the hell out of it, or we start from the ground up. Yes we still buy a lot of the off the shelf stuff, but why invent the wheel?

The other issue, is when it's custom made, if the guy that wrote it buggers off, and there is little or know documentation, it leaves a whole load of shit behind....just look at the banks for a classic example of this.

Dell reveals 'proof-of-concept' ARM microserver

Lost all faith...
Silver badge

Re: Won't be long before Intel leans on Dell to drop it.

A/C (no doubt the same one that spreads other crap), there are NO ARM server OR desktop versions out there. Also RT is 32bit not 64. Before you say i's "just" recompiles, that's utter crap, you cannot take the "standard" programs and simply load them onto RT.

So apart from those 2 massive flaws, you're spot on.

Oh BTW, I'm primarily a Windows user.
