Dr Falck does not have a chip on her shoulder, despite the fact that the whole idea behind the book stemmed from the fact that as a child she was offered a place at a school for gifted children but her mother turned it down because she feared it would result in her becoming socially difficult.
Kieren barely finished that when spewed <drink of choice> all over the screen.
Unfortunately, Uber in Chitown has cut into and therefore reduced the number of cabs freely hailable on city streets.... very noticeable to me who ain't touching Uber with an 11 foot app... cab drivers say about 50%.
Of course, the previous Mayor/brother? is a big investor (IIRC)... and the police were told to not give Uber drivers the "time of day". To bad, based on how I see moving violations daily (not just illegal but just plain stupid or dangerous)... we coulda cut into the city budget deficit!.
I truly enjoy the freedom/chaos of a random cab hail.
“Giving people this power that can be used for criminality ends up with a force for good,” he argued. “More guns in the hands of more people leads to a lower crime rate. I'm interested in the challenge, not the ethics. What we are doing is traditionally sound … maybe I'll go to Hell for this, but I think it's a good thing.”
This is more of an "argument" he's having with *his self.
"...you MUST come to a full and complete stop..."
When I do that myself I'm quite weary of that arse tailgaiting me *anticipating me not doing that... and I'm not a slow driver by any means. Good luck being a pedestrian on a side street in Chitowne.
I won't believe anyone is safe by default.
The last line of the bill says:
SEC. 14. NO PREEMPTION.
Nothing in this Act may be construed to preempt any State law.
So State laws would preempt it? Even if with smaller fines? Or would that just mean *if it ever gets to the FTC level of enforcement. What's the point of law I'm missing here?
"Assistant users will only be able to send reminders to people in their Google family group or people who have accounts linked to the same Smart Display or speaker and who are both Voice Matched and listed in the initiator's Google Contacts database."
Too many parameters... nobody's a match.
"It's also of dubious use saying it was this or that public body."
Although different law enforcement bodies have been gathering fingerprints for different databases for quite a long time, I figured it's all essentially one big one by now... somewhere... at least the national one... data a'int going down the chain and perhaps nor is access (good idea), but.
"...carriers are against block lists because a potential for abuse exists that can result in good phone numbers being blocked."
Isn't this abuse only a possibility if we all share a list? I see some carriers limit the amount of blocked numbers per line so they don't have to *actually manage one/them, but I thought that block lists were resident on the phone itself... if they aren't I'd imagine they should be... and transferable between phones.
Just pass a law allowing each line's block list to be unlimited.... imagine the size and and thruput of that/those database(s)!
"In my experience the vast majority of cyclists are fine and generally play by the rules. "
I dunno know what *city you are talking about, but the exact opposite is true here in Chicago. I've never seen any bike rider actually stop at a stop sign... except for the one that hit the back wheel of my bike because I stopped.
All that being said, there's clearly a bigger issue with drivers and pedestrians doing thier *thing while trying to read the phone in thier hand... something, it seems, being a scooter rider will, perhaps, not allow... although I'm sure some will just stubbornly insist on one-handed operation... proving the applicability of the word "wanker".
One could only look up one word per turn from an agreed upon dictionary, yet someone else looked it up (so the requester couldn't find/see two word spellings on that page), and if it was a good one, you had to use it... otherwise no penalties for your one research request.
Everyone got a last, in order turn to dump a word after the first person out of tiles.
You couldn't dump all your tiles.... max 6.
All multiplier (letter or word) spaces were reusable... made for a lot of prefix and suffix additions.
"Automation brings two things front of mind in most people: A) that it will put it us all out of work, or B) rise up and kill us."
Perhaps we'll be *out of work if we are dead.
A coworker sent me an email regarding our itinerary where she mistyped/misidentified the departure date as Wednesday the 15th (+ time of departure), when, actually Tuesday was the 15th, and without any adding a specific internal link or event to a calendar... Google decided they would put that incorrect information into both of our calendars into that Tuesday. The correct departure date was Wed. the 16th.
Two wrongs don't make a right, and one wrong and one right still make a wrong.
In 1981 or so... just before CD's came out to the general public, a dozen or so of us music students were dragged down to Universal Studios (famous in Chitown) and brought into two engineers booths. In the first one they said to "listen to this". We then moved into the booth next door and they said "now listen to this". We all agreed the first one was better. Much better.
It turned out the first one was analogue recording, the second one was the same recording converted to the new CD format. Granted we were all *seasoned listeners, but that is the point. Since digital recording (albeit the early ones were the worst) there are pieces of the spectrum that just aren't heard and therefore not really expected or trained to be heard by anyone in the general public, and haven't now for the most part of the last 40 years. Generally its the existence, not as primary, but clearly some flavor, subtlety adding overtones and timbre missing which today nobody is aware of its lacking.
The voice is a quite complex sound and the nuances of language, timing and timbre is, as far as I'm concerned, best left for humans to experience with others.
Saying "machine voices outsmart us" is as relevant as "is it live or is it Memorex?".
Let's not forget.... Google is an advertising company, not a tech company.
Forming an external committee is an attempt at ligitimizing any bul***t and/or definitions they'd like, but still being touchy-feely *looking, being *involved in tech related things and calling thier ability to promote those that give them the most money something near intelligence (artificial or not), while still being able to distance themselves to a certain extent when that bull***t does hit the fan.
Perhaps they just don't want those security flaws made public as to invite *attacks they prolly know will be successful, the fixes for which will take months to apply to all of the affected systems.
And, of course, the GOP don't wanna sully the good name of Nixon who started it... other than eliminating the whole thing... <blank stare>
All the above comments... but nobody pokes at this from the article?
But with computer brain interfaces looming, he believed our personal thoughts could be up for grabs to anyone with a court order.
Thanks for the depression... now I know I'll fail these *tests!

Overall there was optimism that the world was heading in the right direction on some topics. Election systems are getting hardened...
If we just kept it hard (paper trail) we wouldn't have to get back *harder.
