Why does the headline on the AI front page use the Isaacson cover img as the story thumbnail? Odd.
I read the Isaacson one and enjoyed it in spite of its shortcomings. I just bought the iBooks version of Becoming Steve Jobs and will read it on my iPhone & iPad. So far it looks great. It definitely seem more connected and relevant from a storytelling pov. Isaacson may be a great writer but there was no sense he was anything but an observer. He never truly experienced the essence of SJ and that comes across in the book. Perhaps the best way to learn about Apple and Steve...
You are talking from a US perspective. Not that that isn't valid but outside of the US the TV is much less useful due to lack of content. The lack of content such as movies and television is problematic and as we know it is a giant task t resolve this quickly due to every market needs to be dealt with individually. In many markets there is much friction. Introducing apps / games, on the TV will go a long way in making it a more desirable item outside of North America.
That's what I call niche use! :-)
Wait a year and see.
Yes, perspective and 'context'. To drag up the old car metaphor - in many countries the most common car used for taxis is the e-class Mercedes because it offers a degree of comfort and a high level of reliability. In that sense it qualifies as a 'professional' car. But the model chosen as a taxi ain't no SLS-AMG. A race driver would never consider an e-class a suitable choice for his job, but that doesn't make the e-class any less of a professional vehicle. And so with...
Agree with all of that. At one point in one of the videos I think they do mention the fuel efficiency gained through 'better' driving. The stereotyping is odd - I put it down to bad marketing, and yes - the steering whee! It just looks odd. You'd imagine it would retract, or something. I also wonder about the ability of people to 'take over' when the need arises. After a period of time and general usage I'd worry that people would no longer be capable of 'taking over'....
This is the best video explaining the new system. I saw a much earlier video but this looks pretty interestinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9D2N4Gp3wYNeither video below actually explains how the technology works but they show examples and you get a bit of a sales pitchhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dO6JtncrY08https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7Up8m6p8DU (long intro)http://www.technewsworld.com/story/81734.html?rss=1
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...
