Both people in this argument are resorting to personal insults, but Mope54 does have a point. If you are going to say the game is crap without even taking advantage of the free week of flight demos? Well, you're actually the one 'invested' in the game, to borrow an expression. In this case...
Eh, why are you trying to use a smart speaker for an entertainment system, anyway? These things aren't intended on playing your music in high fidelity. They're the mouths of virtual assistants. While one CAN play music, it's never intended to be what you're trying to make it be, so of course...
Sure we can! And it's a relatively easy, if time gated process.
Step 1) Vote for Democrats in 2018 to lay the groundwork for Step 2.
Step 2) Vote for Democrats for President, Senate, and House in 2020.
Step 3) Ajit Pai loses the gavel as one of his colleagues or himself is forced to step...
How's about this:
WHen I turn off VPN on my router, Youtube TV stutters on a regular basis. My internet is...Comcast. Could be modem or router, right? Nah. Turn on VPN, and suddenly Youtube TV is smooth (from California, because my end-point is a non-shared IP in Cali, which makes me wonder if...
If I were to get something like this, I would want her more like Cortana. Less pretending to be interested in me as a romantic interest. More pretending to be interested in my well being. Of course, then you start getting close to that edge -- how do you tell the AI that just acts like it's...
I can believe that people learn how to fly an aircraft well enough from a video game well enough to get a real one off the ground. Landing it can be a bit harder, especially if your goal is to exit this world in a blaze of glory after joyriding with the thing.
I just hope that this doesn't...
Hmm...is it me or could this also be used by state actors for nefarious purposes? Hijack legitimate US cellular accounts and then use them as part of a telephone campaign to push the sort of political nonsense that's been flourishing on Facebook?
We've got to get a better handle on our technology.
The Big Bang happened _billions_ of years ago, as in 17 billion. Earth and Mars were not around when that happened. The Sun wasn't around when that happened. In fact, NOTHING was around when that happened. At least nothing in this universe. Because that's what created everything. At least in...
"My Very Educated Mother Cannot Just Serve Us Nine Pizzas. Hundreds May Eat."
(And it gets stupid-crazy when the hundreds actually sit down at the table...)
There was a news article about a Puerto Rican hotel owner who had installed solar on his facility in San Juan. It weathered the storm beautifully and is now powering his neighborhood.
So, I'd say a well designed solar array could take what Maria dished out and keep working afterwards.
Ironically, this was implemented because there were accusations of political bias by the human moderator crew. Facebook predictable overreacted to it, and now, trending news is picked by AI, which can't tell the fake from the real.
This will go up once every year, at best, compared to a hoped for rate of once a month for STS (shuttle) and a more realistic number of 6 times a year. Don't worry about it. Even rockets are getting more frugal. ;P
If these fines and fees were directed towards identify monitoring of affected users, I would support this revenue stream...if I were in the UK of course. But since everyone's screaming 'wasteful spending!', nothing will ever be done.
Cars won't be programmed to save lives. They'll be programmed to drive properly. Saving lives will merely be the side effects of a successful program to drive the car.
Yes. Really it is. And it's silly, too. Just like the car full of babies vs. car full of nuns examples that keep cropping up...
In addition to the other replies, my thought is that eventually, you'll have to manually drive cars either in VR or in a tightly controlled track. From home to work, I'd expect that your car will be automated, and there will be no steering wheel at all. Of course, if some models of traffic flow...
Every time we have a self-driving car discussion, this silly false dichotomy comes up.
Why must the car hit the child or die in a crash with an oncoming car? Couldn't the self-driving car pull into the lane the oncoming car pulled out of? Couldn't it signal the oncoming car to return to its...
Ad revenue, a cut from the Microsoft Store for transactions on new software (of course, MS needs to push the store more, hence advertising in your start menu), and, probably the most altruistic part, making Windows easier to support and maintain. But yes. Not altruistic overall.
Indeed, I'm not impressed, nor am I 'missing something' here. I think the author is missing a few things.
Graphics for Doom were impressive for its time, but today, would be a postage stamp on any monitor made in the past 10 years. Doom originally ran on VGA mode 13h, which was 320 x 200 x 256...
One generally doesn't use M$ unless they are complaining about how much Microsoft's software costs. :)
270m devices isn't that much of a reach when you consider that a typical household may have 2 or more devices. Like the folks here have been saying. 2 adults, each with a desktop and a...
Having read the linked article, I can't help but ask: Why do the major automation companies keep falling for this false dichotomy. There's a child playing in the road? On an overpass? And your only option is to run the child over or go over the edge of the overpass?
How about the self-driving...
Do you know why there's supposed to be 1 car length per 10mph? Because you're human, and it takes time for the signals to travel from your eyes to your brain, through processes in your brain, and then along your spine to your feet. Autonomous vehicles reduce that time by an order of magnitude...
