Re: Step #1, define your terms
It's technical not legal. The car can control the video feed and warn the driver, it can't control a mobile phone.

That is all very impressive but if the vehicle following doesn't have the auto braking tech? How long does it take to stop a truck full of rock/ballast?
However, auto distancing should be fitted to every vehicle now - I live near the A27 and regularly see extreme tailgating at speed limit (70mph, or even greater?). Will have to visit with my radar gun sometime and see.
I cross that road as a pedestrian - no rerouting of footpaths round here. They build a dual carriageway and keep the footpath position! The road is quit bendy so usually I have to run across the 2 lanes to be safe.
Well yes, I get your point but most users want usability and don't really care what's under the hood. I don't use Windows any more - thankfully (it is living hidden on a partition somewhere if I really need it).
I was concerned about moving Start into the middle but, as per article, it seems you can move it back where it belongs. Corners are hotspots, they are the easiest place to move the mouse, so Start should definitely be in a corner, and bottom left is where people expect it to be. It is, after all, where most users start from.
The CRT was a well charged capacitor. The inner was conductive at EHT potential, the outside was painted with silver paint at earth potential. The glass of the tube acted as the dielectric. It was part of the smoothing circuit for the EHT which was low current /high voltage - yes the capacitor effect of the tube is what makes it bite.
To really get bit, try cutting thought the mains derived EHT of a powered up oscilloscope - boy did those cutters fly. Fortunately I lived to tell the tale and the cutters didn't hit anybody, it was my job back in the day. However, the worst getting 'bit' was mains fuse right hand, chassis left hand, that time it was the 'scope that went flying and I had to have a break for a while. That sort of shock is potentially lethal, don't try this!
Nowadays they just hassle you if you don't have a TV license - in fact I believe that was the main way of "detecting" forever. Back in the 70s in a bedsit and not enough money to even afford a TV I got a knock. They obviously weren't detecting a TV as I didn't have one.
More recently a friend who decided that TV was too crap to fork out for a license got threatening letters despite not having a TV and being way too paranoid to even watch videos ripped from BBC on YouTube.
In my experience resistor values are often written as e.g 4k7 1M5 etc. R is often then used for values less than 1k0 e.g 470R, 1R5. i.e. it is a resistor, we know it is ohms so we leave that bit out unless it is less than 1k0 when we use R. Though for the life of me I can't imagine ever needing a 1H5 resistor.
They may well say they have deleted it but how will they prove it. It will almost certainly still exist somewhere. That's the problem with digital data - it is so easy to copy.
I am concerned about Palantir's involvement - see here from June 4th
And how many people will even know how. let alone why they should care :(
I've emailed all my contacts (I don't do social media) urging them to sign and pass it on with a link to this article and a brief description of why we should care, as most of them don't even know about this let alone the implications.
Is the actual cost really the point here. It is the fact that allowance is used without the user knowing. I see lots of stuff about turn this or that off on this site but your average smartphone user i.e. 99.99%* of users know absolutely nothing about this theft let alone how to prevent it.
*OK that is a guess it could be 99.999% of users
"Plus, once everyone else is dead, we get the privilege of taking over the remains"
Do you think that "we" are not the ones going to be dead :)
I've heard people making similar claims about we need a war or erm, a pandemic, to help reduce overpopulation not realising they are just as vulnerable as everybody else.
" i'm not actually doing anything that I need to protect from the government in any way."
Until something you are doing is no longer liked by the government. You seem to be veering towards the nothing to hide argument. We all have something we would rather not be public I suspect. I don't think I have anything that the government might be interested in, but I still don't like that they want to break encryption that I need for e.g. accessing my bank account.
