It's a local scan (in web page code) not a remote port scan.
That's a big CMA difference if you ask me. (local verses remote).

Today if a driver cannot be identified the owner (registered keeper) is ultimately liable. Why would you want to change this legislation if it would still work perfectly?
Today it is up to the owner to maintain the vehicle and to keep it in correct working condition. If a camera is muddy such that it misses a sign that is the responsibility of the vehicles keeper to clean it not the manufacturer (or insurer). If a camera is damaged or has failed it is the responsibility of the owner to fix or replace it as is the regulation today with tires.
You can code for blinding to fall back to radar and Ultrasonic Sensors..
If you match the modulation and create fake objects then the code could think they are real (but invisible to Radar/US) its an awkward trick to exactly match the modulation.. probably more hassle than it is worth...
It's not just an issue for any lasers.. otherwise two cars would stop each other.. it needs to match the lidar encoding, which is why the modulation is required. and if you are going that far you can modulate for specific locations and hence individual objects.
The blinding issue is a problem that can easily be overcome with two lasers on different light frequencies and coding that falls back to ultrasonic and radar (probably slowing the vehicle) in the event of laser blinding.
Yes it probably works on test vehicles which are designed to fail-safe when they encounter a problem.
It's well know that the Mercedes electric B class uses the Tesla Motor drive train.
Likewise the Model S uses a lot of parts from Mercedes.
I'm not surprised Tesla's bank balance is going down have you seen the size of that gigafactory? Though I do think the Model X will not do as well as the S.. and Tesla need to get a move on with the Model ≡
Most decent drones these days are GPS enabled. Is it too much to ask for appropriate Legal No-Fly Zones to come pre-loaded? I'm pretty sure you could put the entire worlds Airports no-fly boxes/circles onto a single microSD card.
You could easily legally restrict drones to no-fly without "Permitted Zones Data File" for appropriate country/area. And you could get your "Permitted Zones Data File" (locked to your serial Number) when you buy your insurance from BMFA. (Data File Could also expire with 3rd party insurance.)
Sensible laws are what is required not knee-jerk bans.
Technical preview users are not the same as end users doing their day job, they are technically previewing and testing the system not actually using it as a day to day work tool. By monitoring and tuning for these poke around users of course you'll see higher usage (read testing) of new features, giving you a false/skewed impression of their acceptance. Where as what most users really want is the peddles and steering wheel to be in the same place as they always have been.
WTF are you doing to your watch? (Are you using a phone that doesn't support Bluetooth LE?) My pebble easily lasts 5 days between charges. I've never had a Pebble go flat on my wrist ever (since feb 13) I do put the watch and phone on charge at the same time from the same dual port power block.
That said entering Pin if it is flat is hardly the end of the world though is it?
The Phone going flat however does happen frequently... but that's a different problem!
I don't like entering a pin every time I get my phone from my pocket.. so I have found the perfect solution: The Pebble Locker App!
My phone is unlocked as long as it is connected to my Pebble watch. as soon as my watch goes out of range, the phone is pin locked. No hassle for me and secure if it leaves range of me. A best of both worlds solution!
legal Dilemma: I take picture of my vote (not another's) If Police or Staff ask to see it they are asking me to disclose my vote?! ergo prohibited!
I think staff demanding to delete anything is going to far, they should politely advise as follows:
"Taking photos/video that may disclose how another person has voted is illegal under Section 66A of the 1983 Representation of the People's Act, If you have taken a photo/video that may disclose another persons vote you are advised to either delete it, or seek immediate legal advice.
If staff believe you may have contravened the 1983 Representation of the People's Act they may pass your details on to the Police or other regulatory body."
By restricting the setop box to not allow local content (local media servers) they have already created a duff set top box. but worst of all Youview does not support ConnectTV so does not support freeview content delivered over the internet (there will soon be many channels delivered this way) like MotorsTV on Freeview channel 240 which works on any recent internet-connected FreeviewHD unit but is not supported on youview boxes.
The future of youview looks dim. when a standard smart tv will support ALL the freeview content delivery routes and has apps for iplayer and the other offerings.
I think you are confusing the Fisker Karma with the Tesla. It was the Karma that had a number of fault fires. so far Tesla has had 3 fires, 2 from impacts with debris on the road (with no injuries, unlike this incident) and one fire as the result of a high speed crash impacting multiple objects, (again no serious injury)
Perhaps you should check out #NotATesla on instagram, twitter and facebook...
Microsoft have nothing to worry about, their own research showed that people don't want backward compatibility, hence why its not included.
Of course if MS are just restricting backward compatibility to sell more games and there are enough non to tech savvy folks out there who do want it, enough to try this 'fix' ... then MS have a shit storm on their hands...
Question is, is it deservedly so?
Bit stupid to include an auto brick key sequence though...
I'd suspect it's more likely to be a reel of wire, like the kind most continuous welding machines already use... and a bottle of argon (or co2 mix?) like welding machines already use will be cheap.. And who needs expensive pressurisation etc? when you can just overflow the box with argon dribble feed, much like current welders do..
Sounds like this can all be achieved with a welding machine fitted to a cnc mill..
