Comment Re:He's totally right (Score 1) 268

Even a PRIMITIVE system that's only capable of "stay in the current lane, follow the car in front of you if the lane becomes ambiguous, and maintain speed while braking if necessary to avoid a rear-end collision" on limited-access roads would be a net improvement over what we have today.

Actually, those systems already exist today and even yesterday, because they've been around for years already.

Google has already shown that automated driving is safer (not counting some conditions, because they don't test in regions with ice, because it will loose effectiveness for certain sensors).

The 'problem' is with the user. We are now in limbo land between manual and automated. If a car only supports automated you'll have a whole lot less problems.

Your IV example is not a good example, that is actually something people are working on, here some quick list of some links:

The raw hate and fear of a clinton presidency is like the fever dream of someone who has been mainlining rush limbaugh and glen beck for a decade.

Totally agree. Even the Pope said journalism/media (if you can call it that) can be terrorism too. A word like that might already be overused and he might be stating the obvious. But very few people with his reach have done so. But he's right terrorism is about creating fear at a large scale and at least some media does that too.

(I posted a comment but it seems it got lost, because it doesn't exist anymore. So this is actually a shorter version)

OK, so let me be clear I'm in Europe. So I might have it wrong, but I'll give my perspective.

I totally agree things like ISIS are a total fuck up. I'm just saying, you have a 2 party system and both parties and their candidates suck.

It's a history of fucks ups, something like 40 years of them, the parties don't seem to matter at all.

My perspective is: the system is currently fundamentally broken. And I see to few people in the US trying to fix it. I haven't done even hours of research, but maybe something like Wolf PAC might solve your problems. It might be a small step and it will take a long time, but at least people would be doing something.

I wouldn't be surprised that the problems you are having now with racism and protests are just a small in comparison to what is coming if this graph is to be believed: http://i1.wp.com/andrewmcafee....

This is still true:

"Quote from Netflix on their blog regarding this:

Here’s a snapshot: x265 and libvpx demonstrate superior compression performance compared to x264, with bitrate savings reaching up to 50% especially at the higher resolutions. x265 outperforms libvpx for almost all resolutions and quality metrics, but the performance gap narrows (or even reverses) at 1080p."
