ApplePoor said:All USA cell phones are able to dial 911 even with no service or sim as that is a requirement for the certification of the cell phone. The SOS tells you there is no sim
in the phone so no non-emergency calls but you can dial 911
maury markowitz said:retrogusto said:To me the point here is that it’s a lot of money for a lock that provides a relatively low level of security.Pretty sure that is maury_markowitz' point. It's exactly the same security, for a lot more money. Whether the convenience features are worth that premium price is a different question which can only be answered by the purchaser, but the security features (being exactly the same) are arguably not.Yes, it's true that one can spend even more money to upgrade the cylinder, but that's also true of a non "smart" lock.
Did y'all miss the part where at least one of the people testing this has ALS? Think Stephen Hawking. This tech isn't for people who just don't want to touch their phone. It's for people who cannot control their muscles well enough to operate a phone in a consistently reliable way.Oh sure, "someday" there might be wider applications for tech like this, but for now it's for people with few, if any, other options.

Musk has a huge conflict of interest here. He now has a massive financial interest in Twitter and is abusing his position as CEO of Tesla to divert Tesla resources to help Twitter. That benefits him but almost certainly hurts Tesla shareholders. The only uncertainty is how much it hurts Tesla shareholders.
That's only an issue if he instructs them, as Tesla management, to work on Twitter stuff. If, however, he hires them, as Twitter management, to work on Twitter stuff, the only controversy is if they do, in fact, harm Tesla in so doing. I've been programming professionally for almost 40 years, and lots and lots of programmers moonlight without harm to their "main" employer.
mention how bad this can be for productivity and health having this “moonlight” work as you call it.A very many programmers I have known welcome working on different stuff from time to time. My own moonlighting has always been a refreshing change, and even at this stage of my life I work a few side gigs from time to time just to keep my skills fresh. I understand that in some other professions, working a second job is often viewed as a bad thing, and often is a bad thing. Many developers don't think that way with regard to another development job.And FWIW, "moonlighting" is a fairly standard term, at least in the U.S., for a full time worker who takes on other jobs, whether they are related to one's main employment or not. It's not just what I call it.
