    Why Google's Self-Driving Car Will Fail

    Mass transit blows. I don't like getting on crowded buses or planes. The only way you get rid of personal vehicles is with higher fuel prices. Until then, they will be here to stay.

    I love Apple for iphone/ipad combo but prefer Windows for everything else (laptop/desktop). As an iphone 5 user that skipped on the 5s, i'm looking forward to the 6.

    Target CEO Out In Wake Of Data Breach

    It is discouraging to know that c-levels look out for their own where as Joe Employee is shown the door immediately. Probably more afraid of litigation coming from the 1% and hope they go away peacefully.

    Target CEO Out In Wake Of Data Breach

    If you knowingly get caught withholding this information from customers, you will go to jail. They should have had penetration tests done by independent security firms. If you do a few tests a year and rotate between vendors, someone *should* have caught this hole and reported it as a...

    Driver Fined $48K For Using Cell Phone Jammer

    I very seldom make calls while driving. It only happens if I absolutely have to. However, I do receive calls while driving. Preventing cellphones from ringing would lessen my chance of getting in an accident.

    Google Says Its Self-Driving Cars Can Tackle City Streets Now

    I like this statement. I don't think driver is ever that complex though. Our emotions may 'think' they are but it's not.

    Google Says Its Self-Driving Cars Can Tackle City Streets Now

    Human intuition and 'feel' is not something I trust. It comes down to safety. Driver-less cars never get distracted, never get sleepy, never get drunk, don't get emotional, don't need to 'feel' the road.

    Google Says Its Self-Driving Cars Can Tackle City Streets Now

    I would put money on computers over people any day in this scenario. Most people have no idea their car is hydroplaning or sliding. The number of accidents that unfavorable elements and inexperienced drivers cause should really make the safety of the driver-less car shine. The next gripe...

    Banks Pay Microsoft Big for Securing Windows XP ATMs

    People freaking out about ATM's running XP is a waste of time. The machines are on isolated networks and unless you can get to the USB port, attacking the OS is a waste of time. The real risk lies in magnetic card skimmers. Those devices don't care what OS you run.

    Marissa Mayer Fires Yahoo COO

    They actually have a great Yahoo Finance section if you're in to that. It provides more data than a majority of others out there.

    Google Buys Nest For $3.2B

    I think Google has plenty of high profile designers already. This has more to do with them getting a foot into the consumer hardware market. There are dozens of unloved devices in your home that Nest could redesign. All those devices will collect data.....which is something Google is good at.
