"He omitted to mention Elaine Herzberg, the 49-year-old who was struck and killed by an Uber self-driving car"
Since they are not likely to disable emergency braking in these cars I don't see why you would think that's relevant.

For the foreseeable future self driving trucks will still have 'drivers', if only to prevent robbery, but the big point for transport companies is those trucks will be able to keep moving, at least, 22 hours a day
Yes, it's weird, it is almost as if they didn't have seers on staff
More likely because she wasn't hired by the people who ended up managing her.
And then because the managers need a scapegoat for the bad performance.
But then, she is in sales, she may be "embelleshing" what happened.
MS spent years critizing Google for 'reading you mail' in order to display ads, they called it getting 'scroogled'
So now they are doing it themselves.
But,of course, nobody thought they actually believed in what they were saying
But you will be.
In fact the ones who make that kind of pompous speeches are likely to be in the second row hearing the shotguns singing.
"Useful idiots" is what you are called by the ones making the shotguns sing.
For some reason, in democracies people are expected to be able to understand what they are voting for.
Sure, many don't, for example everyone who doesn't vote the same way I do, but then if you start limiting the vote those who know what they are doing, you end up with the-party-is-always-right regimes.
You know, Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others and all that stuff.
So now we have "legacy" cloud.
Oracle statement is so funny it sounds like parody
"Nobody has yet managed to pluck a thought from someone's head "
Of course they have, it's a method called "torture".
Disgusting, maybe, but it works pretty well.
Yes, it is 0.3% less.
You know, such a statistically significant difference
You have a point, of course, but I doubt things can really be a lot more simpler than they now are.
If Dolphin was half as good managing files as Konqueror was in KDE 3, I would believe it wasn't intentional.
On the other hand, the way Konqueror has been gutted in KDE defies belief.
I was going to post something about angels dancing on pins, but yes, "philosophical navel gazing wank-fest" works too.
"Tolerance means tolerating those who's actions/opinions you truly hate."
So, I have to tolerate pedophiles?
I don't think so.
It's live usb nowadays
Nope, Uncle Scrooge did it decades ago to save on lighting costs
No, because then they would be abusing their office suite monopoly.
"Android has destroyed all OS competition in mobile, except for Apple - because nobody else could charge for a mobile OS."
Nah, not really, Microsoft used their patent extorsion racket to make it more expensive than Windows Phone.
The OEM still used Android.
It is not hard, the EU has told Google that giving those apps for free is anticompetetive, so now they are asking money for them.
I case nobody remembers, Microsoft used to make a N version of windows version for the EU without IE and media player, maybe they still do, it is hard to tell because, after all, nobody ever bought it.
Google is likely hoping the same will happen here, worse thing that will happen in Sansumg not including their apps instead of installing both theirs and Googles'.
And besides, even if they do, instructions to install Google play in those devices will be in the internet for all to see, even with the Sansumg browser.
Well, now that I think of it the worse thing that will happen is nerds like us will end installing it in all the family devices.
If some Ming control freak had not stopped naval expeditions back in 1433 world history may have been very different.
Although from his point of view it made some sense, after all they were so advanced compared to the rest of the world that everything worth having was already at China.
"not the My Documents one - even if a lot of bad applications - often ported from Linux..."
You mean like, for example, outlook?
Yes, those Linux so called "programmers", they don't have a clue
Yes, all three of them
"he worked from home with a thin client"
So, you configure the firewall to block the 3389 port for every IP except his home one.
If that IP isn't fixed you specify a range, but you knew that.
You can read about Admiral Dönitz desperation in his memoirs, but they never thought their special Enigma machines could be cracked.
Also, getting the germans to believe the bristish navy could detect the radar installed in the submarines helped, as they were made to emerge blind.
But really, the Enigma cracking was top secret for decades, pretending to believe that such a highly detailed cracking was faked decades after those alleged spies needed protecting makes no sense.
Ok, it may have the marketing, but real charm?
You have to be kidding.
Absolutely, you can be certain of that by the way those companies have imploded in the UE
In engineering it is usually considered a good idea to design with the worst case scenario in mind.
California can prove that ISP money can’t defeat
real people’s voicesSilicon Valley Money
That's more likely really
And that relates to "This is what we sell. Now buy it.Don't like <feature> ? Tough. That's how we do it." in that ...?
"Googles idea of "marketing" is clearly "This is what we sell. Now buy it.Don't like <feature> ? Tough. That's how we do it."
And that makes them different from Apple in that...?
Seriously, after the "fractured disparate approarch" that's Windows 10 GUI, you should have used a different "big vendor" for your trolling.
More likely they want it to be a module that gets included in the Linus sanctioned kernel instead of being a out-of-tree module you have to patch in the kernel source yourself.
That's definitely something to keep in mind if you have reason to believe Mission Impossible operatives are going to want to read the files in your phone.
But in real life, not so much
"IBM paid 13.5 per cent tax rate, some $353m, in the quarter compared to 4.5 per cent or $111m in the year-ago quarter."
Indeed, tax cuts, that's why they paid more tax.
I think he made himself look like someone going through a nervous breakdown.
It's no wonder considering all the trouble Tesla is going through, but he should take a breath and go get some professional help.
"A.I. system that facilitates conflict at arms in general."
That would mean all AI systems.
For example, the same AI that would drive a car would be able to drive a tank, once you have solved that the added functionatlity of aiming and shooting would be trivial to add.
There is no big difference between civilian and military research, science is science.
That was the time I first installed Slackware so I could work on my graduation project at home.
My computer didn't even have a CD reader, at the time installing one was kind of daunting and, I think, I had to change a jumper in the sound card to solve some interrupt clash.
Well, I guess I was lucky, a couple years earlier it would have been something like 27 install floppies.
Whippersnappers! They don't know how easy they have it now.
No, it means that since the last release they have added" a lot of exciting new functionality" (TM) and that now they will make certain the new stuff is stable.
You can check my post history, since I am not AC, I like to laugh at MS as much as anyone, but your interpretation makes no sense whatsoever.
At the time netbooks were first released the current version of Windows was Vista.
They were probably one of the reasons W7 was lighter on resources.
"any post on there pretending to be me (and I know there are some) are totally fake"
Says someone posting as AC
"When publishers in Germany and Spain withdrew their material, Google just carried on without them."
I don't know about Germany but in Spain a law was passed to would have made Google pay publishers for Google News.
Publishers were salivating about getting paid but then Google announced they were dropping the service.
Some newspapers then asked for a law to make news aggregation sites mandatory for search engines, but the government kind of ignored them.
I just love helpful error messages.
"That" has been happening for centuries now.
For a trivial example, not that long a banks or big companies would have a row of accountants, one would do the books, pass them to the following accountant who check all the math, and pass them to the following one, who would redo it all over again.
All those jobs, gone.
One of my great-grandmothers used to be a washerwoman, cleaning the clothing of rich people at the river, then washing maschines were invented and all those jobs evaporated.
And there used to be people who would copy books by hand but then some chap called Gutenberg destroyed those jobs.
But, somehow, the destruction of all those jobs hasn't been so bad, has it?
That was weird, wasn't Simon implying that the Boss actually does valuable work?
As usual, real life is more complicated than that.
Who can say if relationship is consentual because the underling feared being fired?
Who can say if the underlings are trying to seduce their managers to get a promotion?
This kind of policy is not there just to prevent the company from being sued but to try to protect both managers and the managed.
