German regulators won't let Tesla use the name 'Autopilot'

I have a sense of foreboding about this

It's going to turn into KITT vs KARR all over again.

Good

I'd like the regulator to take a close look at Elon Musk's borderline criminal enterprises. A very close look indeed.

He managed to charm the green/left idiots here into accepting his idiotic overpriced milk floats, let's see how he deals with a competent country like Germany.

Mercedes answers autonomous car moral dilemma: Yeah, we'll just run over pedestrians

Maybe if pedestrians kept to the pavement where they belong we wouldn't have any of these 'moral difficulties'.

Pathetic attempt at diversion

That this was even suggested proves that elon musk is a delusional idiot with no connection to reality. He's attempting to pass the buck for his own greed and incompetence on to any random targets in his field of view.

Just like his stupid electric cars, he's created a badly-engineered product which doesn't work, and costs lives and money; and is attempting to blame everyone else for his own failings.

All of his borderline criminal enterprises should be shut down immediately and he should be bankrupted and held criminally liable.

Apple at it yet again

It's typical of them to force their shit software on their idiotic luser base without bothering to ask permission.

Meanwhile my PC has none of these problems.

Re: 66% discount

Achromatopsia is a completely different condition from being 'practically blind'.

Their vision, albeit being completely monochrome, is much more sensitive to light than in trichromatic, anomalously trichromatic, or dichromatic individuals.

Labour's Jeremy Corbyn wants high speed broadband for all. Wow, original idea there

I like how in the same sentence he conflates data carrier type with signal strength.

Truly he shows a real grasp of the technical issues.

Double-dealing from treehuggers

Miniature car maker drops massive malware

Adblockers bad

'Segura reported last month that more than 400 malicious advertisements were shipped through pwned ad network AdsTerra in two weeks.

Those ads dropped the hugely successful Magnitude exploit kit'

But... I've been told that adbockers are bad for the internet.

7 million Apple Watches just buried the competition – Canalys

Re: Now this IS interesting

> TAG, however, is a proper premium manufacturer

Like when they bought an existing chrono movement from Seiko, put their own name on it and pretended that it was one of theirs (Cal 1887)?

Like when they put the ETA 2824 movement in a watch costing nearly £2000?

Sounds like a 'proper premium manufacturer' to me.

Photographer hassled by Port of Tyne for filming a sign on a wall

unwarranted triumphalism

Re: @unwarranted irrelevance: In other words...

Of course, only a 'narrow-minded unthinking twerp' could possibly object to their privacy being invaded by arrogant and uncaring photogs.

And they wonder why people have such a low opinion of them... I can't think why...

Re: @unwarranted irrelevance: In other words...

It's good to know that you find yourself so amusing.

But despite your rather feeble attempt at an insult, concern for one's privacy is not 'being paranoid'.

So it would be OK if I were to stand on the pavement outside your house and take pictures?

Somehow I doubt you would have quite the same laissez-faire attitude.

That's a nice OS you have there, Microsoft

It would be a shame if someone were to replace it with this Ubuntu install I just happen to have burnt to a DVD.
