Are you sure? peregrin said that he/she thought 9PM. Thirty minutes earlier than 9PM would be 8:30PM. He/She moved 400 miles EAST in the same timezone - the sun would set earlier OR he/she would perceive/see the sun set earlier.
How long before most automobile driving is done by computers?
Giving a car all the sensory input(s) and Judgment for completely autonomous operation is not easy.
But, if the roads have embedded transponders or similar tech. then the basic driving tasks are fairly reliable.
Hypothetically, if the road is not modified and the self-driving car is dependent upon the painted lines ...
Lines can fade. What if some prankster hides a line and/or paints a new one? Yes, a prankster could dig up the road BUT that would be an effort.
WHSmith Putting DRM In EBooks Without Permission From the Authors
You MIGHT be correct, but TFS IMPLIES that author Simon Royle contracted with Draft2Digital (his distributor), not WHSmith nor Kobo.
For Jane's, Gustav Weißkopf's 1901 Liftoff Displaces Wright Bros.
I don't know if the Wright brothers were first or not. But, I do know that this "re-creation" is BS. I read TFA and carefully viewed the images. There is nothing that actually shows the darn thing flying and there are many clear photographs of it on the ground. Someone mentioned evidence in court. Well, I am an attorney and this case is a laugher!

Vint Cerf Answers Your Questions About IPv6 and More
Admittedly ".test" is not pretty, but it is already a Reserved Top Level DNS Name per RFC 2606.
I also read Yeoh's draft. It really has no restrictions and as such the idea of bookmarking a name that has no guarantee of working anywhere else is self-defeating. For example, "https://airconditioner.here/settemp?celsius=25" is probably not very useful in a large room with multiple A/C units. Should that local DNS have every alias/synonym for airconditioner? His idea of "all.here" etc. giving "a list of registered devices" has some merit. But, how about "all.test" or "devices.test" or even "nodes.test"?
