Chinese 'connected' cars are a national security threat, says Biden

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

No the real enemy of the American people are the ceos who are today and in the past selling everything they can to CHina for the past 40 years.

They should all be put in jail for treason, because without them China would be a dot.

Re: Insert obligatory Lord Farquaad 'some of you may die' meme here

But you are for discrimination.

Im absolutely dumb founded how in America the land of suing and black lives matter, nobody has gone to caught and challenged the fact why only the ceo is entitled to bonuses of any kind and the rest of the company is denied this basic fact.

The formula for calculating bonuses shoudl be the same for everyone top to bottom.

Re: Insert obligatory Lord Farquaad 'some of you may die' meme here

Thats easy to overcome, simply make the compensation a multiple of the lowest worker from 5 years ago, even if they play switcheroo.

FB and G support the concept of worshipping corporations and corporate management along with the rest of the American media.

This has the effect that the masses are slowly but surely being paid less and having to work longer and longer hours. THere are a lot of poor people in America working jobs earning less than $5 an hour, because Corporate america has dsestroy the concept of human rights and a fair wage.

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

You are discounting the real damage that the stupidity caused by FB is causing to society. I know people are free to be stupid and believe in crap they see on FB and G, but its a cruel example of extorting those that are too stupid to think otherwise. There are also many examples of FB for example allowing stupid medical recommendations that have killed thousands. There are also examples where FB has allowed groups to organise and attack and kill hundreds and thouands of gays, or others of another race.

FB and G are not a common good for humanity, stop pretending its ok, because idiots give it to them for free. Its shameful that idiots can be abused this way, thats why we have governments to protect children because they dont understand or grasp that ther eare evil people who can hurt them.

Re: ...and a large number of engines that would probably not be very happy eating moon dust

The text clearly says that Starships will land on the moon and take off. Look at the artist renderings...THere clearly are rockets on the bottom with nothing between them and the surface.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SpaceX_Starship

>A planned lunar lander variant of Starship was contracted by NASA to land astronauts on the Moon as part of the Artemis program for at least two Artemis lunar landings, starting with Artemis 3 in 2026.[5]

Re: Moon landing

Brainy one, go watch the video on wiki, you can clearly see there is a base with raised legs and the return vehicle uses that to return to the coammand module.

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

Re: Moon landing

The lunar landers did not return the entire vehicle. The return vehicle with the astronauts sacrificed the lower half as a base. Less than a 1/4 of the vehicle actually returned.

How is that resuable when only a 1/4 returns ?

Re: Moon landing

A helicopter is not a rocket, they are completely different vehicles, If a rocket was as simple as a helicopter they wouldnt need to special empty places to blast off.

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

Re: Moon landing

> That's not really an accurate way to think of the situation. These are rocket engines; they don't have external intakes, so nothing is getting "sucked" in.

THey have openings where al lthe exhaust gases escape, stuff will get sucked in which is exactly what happened when in that Starship failure not that long ago, rocks got sucked in and destroyed numerous engines and it eventually was unbalanced and failed.

Re: If anyone is asking "why Oxygen?"

You are making a lot of assumptions that Tesla cars are good for the environment. They are so good for the environment, that they were fined by the EPA for releasing toxic crap into the environment.

Whats going to happen to all those batteries when they are worthless because there is new battery tech ?

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

Re: Moon landing

That may be all true, but that doesnt solve the problem of the fine particles of moon dust being sucked into those engines and causing havok.

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

Re: Moon landing

Most people have no clue just how terrible moon dust is. It sticks to everything just ask the moon landers. Theres no way rockets will be reusable and able to launch from a bare surface of the moon, just like its basically impossible from earth where the dust is considerably nicer.

What makes you think Musk gives a rats arse about the environment ?

He doesnt even care about humans, his factories are full of abuse, racism and more, and you think he cares about the environment ?

Underwater cables in Red Sea damaged months after Houthis threatened to do just that

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

Or those experts are telling lies hoping that people like the Huthis actually believe.

You fail to appreciate that today and in the past, the illusion is more important than the reality.

Look at Russia, the illusion they were a world power worked for 80 years, the truth is the west could have smashed them probably at any time. Even today Russian cant beat Ukraine, America could make dog shit of Russia if it had too. Look at the havoc American HIMARS are creating and theres barely a two dozen of them running around. I dont know how many the USA has, but it must be in the hundreds, with a 100, RUssia would done. Same goes for long range missiles, we all know who has missiles that can hit anything and we all know who is just launching as many as possible and hoping.

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

The Rear Admiral was probably telling a porkie pie. It woudl be utterly stupid if someone with his qualifications and knowledge admitted on national television that these and other cables are easy targets.

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

Exactly the stupidity is amazing. Im not saying that Palestinian life is sunshine and icecream in Israel, but they get far better treatment than people in Iraq, or what Boko Harum or Isis.

Israel has killed at most a few thosuand and many would argue they were legitimate, but ISIS of today in Africa and the past when they were in Western Asia killed hundreds of thousands. Why didnt any single Muslim country say ONE bad word about them ? None of them actually sent a single troop to fight ISIS.

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

It doesnt work like that. Radio waves basically dont work underwater, the deeper you go the lower the radio frequency which means basically almost nothing in bandwidth. If you want control which requires a high bandwidth you need a cable.

Re: Why do they need a submarine?

You would be surprised how many of the worlds choke points or important water channels are actually quite shallow. THe Gulf for example is actually quite shallow, Suez and English channel or Baltic its all shallow.

I always wondered why all these islamic groups who are so passionate about protecting the palestinians and yet they never act to protect their fellow muslims in other countries.

Where were the Houthis when Saddam was killing Iraqis and Iranians like flies ? Or how about the Taliban and their cruel and violent rule for 30 years in Afghanistan ?

Re: $100K + cars?

How many hours of your life are you going to waste to do 500k ?

Sad that people cant see cars and travelling are a self imposed prison of stupidity.

Well even if you rewrite my sentence with replace every 4 years instead of 2, very few people are going to buy a new car every 4 years...

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

All apple products are designed to be replaced in 2 or so years with the next model. Very few people can afford to buy a new 100k car every two years. Thi s was never going to be a money spinner.

The system is fixed. The media including thereg elevate corporate leadership to levels of untouchability.

Its like the old world, where nobody could question the church or the local lord, and most of the dumb saps actually accepted them as betters.

HP CEO pay for 2023 = 270,315 printer cartridges

You can thank the American media for giving attention and faking credentials and value from corporate leadership. AMericans need to wake up and realise ceos and all the others with similar titles are simply the worst tax in town. At least paying tax to washington gives value like schools and fire stations, corporate leadership only increases prices so kids die because they cant afford medicines.

ANZ Bank test drives GitHub Copilot – and finds AI does give a helping hand

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

The people who want AI are often lazy people who do a bad job in many other ways. They skip writing comments, their messages are poor and useless.

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

Simple like all power point presentations, they LIE. After all how to do you determine they are wrong ?

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

The person who is reporting these umbers is probably a professional bullshitter who never does any real work at the ANZ. THey are prolly making unfounded powerpoint presentations with graphs using numbers plucked out of nowhere. Pathetic that these jobs exist in the first place, they are a tax on humanity and the environment.

Code completion is a solved problem, for quite some time. If one knows the type of the variable, its a pretty simple task to find the available methods/functions, no intelligence there.

Wht you are seeing isnt AI....

Who says you need to wear lycra ? Grow a brain and be an individual. THe main of cause of the car and traffic problem is too many idiots who just copy everyone else without having a brain and questioning if there are better ways.

Re: Can't be all bad, these cars ==========>

As opposed to people who waste so much of their life in cars that they get pissed at being slowed down by a cyclist for a few moments ?

Maybe the real q you should be asking is why am i wasting so much of my life sitting ina car in the first place ?

No car, no worries about cyclists.

Forcing AI on developers is a bad idea that is going to happen

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

Re: Software Development != Coding

If theres advertising or salespeople involved you can be sure the only truth is they are all liars and peddling lies.

lurko: The bigwigs have been suckers for ridiculous ideas since the Emperor's New Clothes (which dates back to at least the early 1300s in Europe, and a similar story can be traced back to 1052 in India, so it isn't going to change any time soon. All of which means that all of us (devs, or those of us in other areas) are going to have AI shoved down our throats regardless of the consequences.

cow: Not really...

This is simply managers who having a clue which is all of them, trying to appear they are relevant. Happens all the time, in my old city, everytime tehres a new head of trains, they change the colours or logo or stupid shit that doesnt actually make the trains better. THis is another one of them.

Re: Software Development != Coding

The REAL problem is the people who dont understand the concept of context you summarised are also often the same people running the company.

Re: Simple solution?

I always thought if a company displayed goods or servies and then accepted payment for those goods or services they were selling said product.

I guess amazon is doing all that out of the kindness of their heart a bit like a neighbour giving away mangos for free outside their home.

Amazon overcharges shoppers with Buy Box algorithm, fresh lawsuit claims

CowHorseFrog Silver badge

This is old news.

I have noticed another Amazon scam, look around at a product a few times over a few days... and suddenly its not available locally but available from somewhere like Germany, I live in AU, with a postage cost even though i have prime. If i buy it mysteriously gets here in a day or two which is obviously too fast as i dont live in a big city...
