So what? Are you James Bond's controller, or even more important to the Free World? Google sells ads...that you don't have to even look at. Relax 0069, you're safe.

FSD unsafe because Musk refused to use Lidar, says NHTSA director Ann Carlson, who just happens to have a bunch of shares in the company producing Lidar equipment. In tests with Lidar, eg GM's Cruise, their system is less "safe". Ah, profits v. public safety...profits of course.
Hardly manipulation, unless one's a half-wit. How often have you forgot something on your shopping list then remember it when you get home? I have. An AI servant that reminds me of an accompanying or complementary product would be handy. Remember, you don't to follow the AI, unless you're a half-wit. Then you do need help...
If they want to how, tell them. Back in the old "days" I shot Fujichrome 200 at 400 ASA then "cooked" it to get that "bite" you see in National Geographic. We rated Tri-X (400) at 800 or even 1600 for night work then cooked it. Brilliant! This was before infra-red. Then the dark room...Now the Gimp...raw images, unless taken by God, need help.
Exactly. Is it simple jealousy, this Musk bashing? He warned that chances of "failure" were very high, but it was the way to learn, which is not fashionable in the West...it must be TikTok perfect every second every time. Who else can flip a space ship on its back then return it to the launch pad? You, Thomas?
Watched Tucker Carlson ranting about TikTok destroying American kids' brains, seducing them into teen-porn clips or toilet licking, while he "complained" that Chinese TikTok kids do science and maths puzzles to show friends. There's no "Trojan Horse". Americans are just too dumb to cross the road, read a book or count to 10. TikTok is the messenger of America's decline into moronity not its cause.
When the writer grows up and ventures abroad he'll learn that Microsoft, Apple, Google, Facebook, et al, are all "state actors" in that they hand over anything the Intel services ask for. Spying locally "prohibited"? Easy fix. GCHQ spies on Americans while NSA spies on Birts, etc, then send the intel across the pond. The naïveté of the article is embarrassing. The China bashing is standard El Reg..
After the US-backed overthrow of Ukraine's democratic govt in 2014, the neo-Nazi Ukrainian forces attacked Russian speakers for 8 yrs, killing 15,000 civilians. Russia finally intervened in 2022, under Geneva Convention Art 51, "Responsibility to Care" for imminent genocide. Legal. Sadly, El Reg readers are ignorant outside their little world of tech and Guardian Garbage.
Pres Bukele introduced BTC as a *parallel* currency to USD. And using the Lightning interface Salvadorans working abroad can "instantly" remit cash back home to rels for a few cents, instead of the 8-12% charged by WU, Wells Fargo and other thieves. No wasted electricity. BTC mining runs off geothermal power (almost free). You buy a house or an ice cream with BTC via your phone. Munger doesn't know what a phone is so he won't believe you.
All Russian responses to previous aggression. Remember, the Ukraine "war" was started in 2014 by the US installed neo-Nazis with the stated aim of "eliminating Russian speakers in Donbas". Do more research. Drop the Guardian if you want sense.
