Those Stanford whiz kids have done it again. Now a chatty AI bot to negotiate sales for you with Craigslist riffraff

Devon County Council techies: WE KNOW IT WASN'T YOU!

Matt 18

OK, i'll bite

I've definitely printed blocks of test on an outdated printer driver, or an incorrectly configured white-label driver, and seen many of the issues in the letter, namely missing spaces, or certain vowels dropped.

Whilst I admit, most printer driver issues will result in ALL of a certain letter dropped etc, I'm willing to give some BOD, especially given how obvious some of the errors are; and i'll refer to my anaecdotal evidence as described above.

Keep your hands on the f*cking wheel! New Tesla update like being taught to drive by your dad

Re: Crash Test Dummies.

Ding ding ding!

Who asked for it? Is it for increasing "safety"? People without AP cars can still do a lot of damage to my AP vehicle I reckon.

The whole thing is dangerous, and pointless.

I believe this is currently in the process of being thrashed out. Seems like a simple change to enforce and police to better society and I expect it to be law in the next 12m.

UK.gov admits porn age checks could harm small ISPs and encourage risky online behaviour

Matt 18

Is it not my job as a parent to block, filter and educate my child's usage of the internet no the government / ISPs?

What is a porn site? How nude is "too nude"? My development wasn't harmed because of dial-up porn. This whole thing is mental.

Algorithms, Henry VIII powers, dodgy 1-man-firms: Reg strokes claw over Data Protection Bill

Matt 18

Just because the system can be exploited/open to abuse doesn't mean the benefits of implement such system should be ignored. As long as things are tracable and transparent, I say give the security researchers the BOD.

You have to have faith i nthe system...Exactly like how MPs can't be lobbied and parlimentary votes bought right? :|

Re: Er what?

"the approach Google took"

i.e. it's a narrative. Not to be taken literally.
