Re: Statistically....

since autopilot has never EVER meant "without any human backup."...

i'd say the former.

The hated Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal will soon be dead. Yay?

L05ER

right...

"based on a series of theoretical situations and slanted readings of the text."

until those situations come to pass and it's interpreted that way... just like every other law that has totally never had that happen... no thanks.

Computer forensics defuses FBI's Clinton email 'bombshell'

Finally, that tech fad's over: Smartwatch sales tank more than 50%

L05ER

didn't read the article...

smartwatches are as much a fad as tablets were 10yrs ago...

Super Cali: Be realistic, 'autopilot' is bogus – even though the sound of it is something quite precocious

L05ER

again?

great, instead of educating people on what ANY/THE REAL autopilot does... let's just act like the reg and be complete buffoons and act like autopilot should be capable of more than it is.

and just because California (the single biggest nanny state in the us) agrees with you... doesn't make you correct... it's just makes you like the avg idiotic Californian.

Hackers hijack Tesla Model S from afar, while the cars are moving

L05ER

you do realize...

that most (if not all) cars come with some level of connection...

GM's OnStar service has had this level of control over cellular modem for some time now. tracking and shutting down a stolen car is one of its selling points...

why is it so much Tesla hate (in the form of FUD) can be found on the register? the article seemed to avoid directly spreading any this time around, but the comments are still steeped in it.

member when el reg used to be amazing?

i member...

Re: In other news..

so you'll accept the assurances of one group of people, but not another? biased much?

Is Tesla telling us the truth over autopilot spat?

L05ER

Re: Autonomous Cars

to claim that autopilot is at all misleading is stupidity at best.

autopilot doesn't do what you think it does, and that is not tesla's fault.

the name is very accurate... and i'd argue better than its namesake. unless of course plane autopilot has any obstacle detection and avoidance capabilities i'm unaware of...

L05ER

all these implications...

where do you get them?

the only message i ever got from the "blame shifting" as it was called... was that the system as a whole was (as designed at the time), insufficient to handle the circumstances it found itself in. period.

none of the BS this article seems eager to shove down people's throats... but then what should i expect from a publication that has been nothing but hostile toward the autopilot system. everything i know about its namesake and everything the company itself has stated is far and away from how it is presented here.

do you people complain about traction control because it doesn't maintain traction 100% of the time without fail? ABS because they still momentarily lock in very wet conditions?

Tesla to stop killing drivers: Software update beamed to leccy cars

L05ER
WTF?

Re: Light bulb moment?

i wonder why anyone thinks autopilot will do the job for them... name me anything automated that works 100% of the time, without any human guidance or intervention.

does nobody at the reg understand actual capabilities of a plane's autopilot? why do people think we pay pilots when we have autopilot?

too many people with more dollars than sense can afford these things is the only problem... not the autopilot system, not lidar, not extra safety features on large trucks...

Post-Silk Road, Feds bust chaps for 'dealing heroin, coke' on world's largest dark web souk

bullshit it was problem users... they just needed to find the amount most people would need/use and then give away slightly less.

Revive revived: Oculus DRM push shattered as DIY devs strike back

L05ER

Re: Pirates?

yes, but if they are honest about that... they have very little legal footing to go after users for breaking the system.

interoperability is generally seen as a legitimate reason to break technological restrictions... but not piracy. their lawyers would have to be stupid to have not advised them to sell it as "anti-piracy".

NetSuite hacker thrown in the cooler for a year, fined $124,000

L05ER

Re: $189,000

assuming these are actual costs, i'd say it's fair given the shared blame nature of most "hacks".

any bad press generated by a company's failure is deserved. he pays for the damage, they pay for the failure.

decent monochrome laser printers are minimum $80 new in any retail outlet here in the US. open box or refurb maybe for $50... but that is the same thing as buying used...

The Windows Phone story: From hope to dusty abandonware

Woz says wearables – even Apple Watch – aren't 'compelling'

L05ER

Re: Success of the Apple II

that was a "useful" case... not a compelling one.

apple doesn't hold on to market share with useful... plenty of others will do that for a lot cheaper. why do you think the only industry that still clings to macs are creative/designer types? they're compelled to use design oriented products.

meh

normally i agree with Woz...

but i think he's expecting too much out of a watch. these things will never be stand alone PC-level devices... nor should they be.

just like you don't code on a tablet... you'll never really game on your watch.

Music's value gap? Follow the money trail back to Google

L05ER

Re: bitch and moan...

two definitions of capitalism for your consideration:

"an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market" -merriam webster

"an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state." -google

ownership and control are generally seen as forms of power... care to explain how these definitions are wrong?

bitch and moan...

you lose me as soon as you try comparing physical goods to digital ones.

the comparison is shit and it underlines how shit the argument is...

IF the world isn't giving you what you think you deserve for what you do... stop doing it. don't whine and complain that people need to value your work more. you have to MAKE THEM want your product, you can't create demand by complaining.

i've wanted digital multi-track HD audio for over 15yrs now (i'm in my early 30s), and it's been entirely possible this whole time. THEY JUST WON'T GIVE IT TO US.

i pay for blu-rays, i pay for netflix, i pay for digital media... it's not about being a thief. it's about what i want not being offered. capitalism dictates that the power is in my hands, so excuse me while i steal all this shitty quality music and laugh in your face while you cry about control and being relegated to middle class lifestyles.

Former Microsoft HoloLens man: It's NOT about gaming

L05ER

Re: If that's their use case then its doomed

your wording makes it extremely obvious this is all merely speculation for you, and NOTHING more. if you aren't involved in the construction industry you shouldn't speculate on its needs, at all.

example: don't try telling granite installers that a well trained guy measuring their installs is better than a semi-trained guy with a $15k laser measuring device.

devices like what i just mentioned are undoubtedly going to be more common than AR, but what you shouldn't doubt is that any business that can see a benefit from it... will do so.

not to be confused with the impact driver... which is somewhat similar.

despite your claim, both actually work very well for their respective uses. admittedly you would never use either (in its main use mode) with a screw.

Just because I was taught about racism and segregation doesn't mean it stopped it... Or that liberal arts students really understand, or know what to do with, the anger they feel over it...

Seems like teaching these kids history has led to us repeating the racial tensions and calls for segregation and racial bias... Your platitude isn't quite that accurate, sadly.

this whole dumb it down to make it tablet friendly shit has to stop. where was the market demand for these hybrid pieces of shit? oh right, it never existed. THAT is why they are having so much trouble designing something that works...

Re: Comcast without a cap.

i had this exact same experience at time warner during one of their "we're going to test 'metered pricing' (caps) in your area".

paid about $20 more a month than residential, but i got almost yearly speed upgrades... 4x the upstream... network priority (net neutrality be damned!)... business support... and free install with a contract! they asked about other services on the first sale... but never again.

i kind of want it again now... dropped it during the recession to save 340/yr :D
