Don't confuse the watch with what is still thought of as a 'normal' watch.
Why on earth don't cruise controls disengage automatically when it rains? I had no idea about this and I do use cc often.You are a wiser man than me! I have seen a few videos of different 'self driving' projects. Volvo has developed a system whereby cars digitally chain together. I can quite remember how it works if the 'leader' car or truck drives irrationally, or pulls up or off, but the idea being that automatically link up and respond to a leading car. The example they...
Agree with all above on this - Research Kit looks like it will be very significant and may indeed prove to radically change how much research is done. It's one of those face-plant moments when the instant you hear about it it seems so obvious. I look forward to earning more about specific research project implementation and results.
You are right in both that there would need to be incremental steps - an autonomous self driving car is science fiction, but each step towards 'assisted' driving will be fraught with problems one which would be about liability. I wonder if cruise control has ever been 'blamed' for accidents directly or indirectly.Of course it can, and probably far more safely than humans. But I was imagining a future of fully autonomous vehicles and realizing that at the point at which AI...

Haptic feedback in Magic Mouse, please!
Isn't one of the self driving cars selling points safety? Driving conditions can be factored in, and reaction times should be much better. If a car suddenly brakes on a highway the cars a mile behind could brake within a millisecond if required. Sudden turns down side roads may not work but those sudden turns are hardly safe at any rate. I think the problem with self driving cars arises when there is an accident and the question of liability comes up. There is also the...
Who doesn't like a high end luxury car? Apple execs can afford any car they fancy but does that mean Apple would produce a high end luxury car?        Exactly - it makes no sense. What could Apple bring to that market? These cars sell on driving specs or luxury, neither of which are directly related to technology. A cheap Google type car intended for use in urban areas is all about technology and disruption. Apple could arguably do both in one package but they would...
A lot of programming is not available OTA?
