Meh on my country, love the gov.  It's better than all of the alternatives.
Self-driving cars seem to be getting ahead of themselves. I know these guys are smart and the systems will perform as expected. I think the problem will be integrating them with the non-self driving masses amidst the chaos and insanity that prevails on our roads. I assume these companies will have to get laws passed indemnifying them to a certain extent in every state where they are sold. The cars will be ready before the approvals are. Apple is behind the curve on...
He probably had that moment that so many men do around age 30-35.  He looked in the mirror and thought "What the hell have I been doing all these years?"  When you have that moment, you usually change some things.
Does anyone rely on Russia for anything and actually sleep well at night?  I mean really, there is no other technically advanced country as unreliable as Russia.

I've been using Insteon for years and have a fairly extensive setup using Indigo on a Mac Mini to control my system.  It is very stable and The Indigo Mac app is very capable.

Apple's first car will not be "self-driving".  That tech will be in development for quite some time yet, regardless of what the Internet thinks or what car maker P.R. flacks blather on about.  Then, it will be in legal limbo for an even longer time while governments try to figure out how to deal with deployment, insurance, fault responsibility etc.  Then there is the whole public acceptance issue - what a mess that will be.   Yes it's all very exciting, but I don't see...
Two words: Little Snitch.
It seems to me that the enormous number of variables inherent to OS software makes bug & exploit catching a fairly herculean task.  Mistakes and misses will happen even when we strive to catch the bugs. I think saying "both flaws should not happen" casts people at Apple and Google in a bad light that they may not deserve.
What exactly is "adware"?
Isn't that a little like saying "Human beings should never make mistakes."?  Or saying that creative people should always assume that their work might be used for nefarious things, thus subverting the creative process by never doing anything new?
