I had the opportunity to be a passenger in a Google self-driving car early last year. Very impressive, especially in stop-n-go Bay Area traffic. There is a lot that goes behind the covers to makes the vehicle work.

I imagine a world 20 years from now where self driving taxis are the norm, and due to not having to pay a driver's (or even a dispatcher's) salary, are about 1/3 the cost they are today. A lot of people who own cars now wouldn't need to, and people could reap the benefit of individualized transport without the hassle or cost.

I imagine Taxi drivers would have big problems with this. Everyone talks about reaping the benefits of automatization, no one talks about who exactly gets to reap those benefits. Yeah we are back to the 0.1 vs 99.9% discussion again.

So factory workers. Reduandant. Taxi & Bus, Tram, Train, Plane etc. drivers. Redundant. Doctors, redundant....etc. etc.

Who is left??? Landowners, shareholders, managers, stock brokers, bankers??

When people start becoming superflous, what exactly is going to happen? Are we going to invent some kind of Utopia where no one has to work for a living?? Hhahahahhha....


State will have to establish a basic income that everyone gets.... high enough to make it a choice for humans to do jobs for other humans, rather for corporations. Art, culture and Entertainment and everything related to that would receive a HUGE boost. In the end the world will have to change either way, willingly, or after the resource wars by force.

Also banks need to be outlawed, both debt and loans as well, basic income is DNA coded, card is charged each month automatically, and can be used at locations to transfer money for certain things. But money can not be transfered to other humans. Essentially corporations can earn money this way, but the humans running them can't. (DNA coding to protect against theft + whatever else is state-of-the-art in biometric ID so that nobody can fake DNA)

There are a lot of ways a future society may change to adapt to automation. But let's face it, it's coming. And those that don't adapt, get adapted. Progress stops for no one...

Why would you even need a taxi? Go out to the bar, get gassed, car drives you home. That's awesome because A) I fucking hate taxi drivers B) That would just rule.

What I meant is using auto-taxis instead of owning your own car. Either way, the vehicle drives, not you. I think lots of people wouldn't bother with the expense of owning a car of taxis were half to two thirds cheaper, which they will be once self-driving cars become the norm. By far the biggest cost of a taxi is the driver salary.

I would take those cars if they were half the price of taxis, at that point it would make financial sense for me already.

Click "Order a car to your location" on your smart-tablet-phone whatever get auto billed once you arrive, the future is here.


Ok, just kidding, the future is here once we have AC units that don't require a nuclear plant to power.... and batteries that last longer than a week.

You bought it, you have zero right to bitch about it. Now if it were an unknown from a new developer then sure. However this is what DICE does and has been doing since day one and everyone knows it. Yet, in spite of that you still give them money anyway. That's the definition of insanity boys.

Can't deny it.. but what other MP FPS with vehicles and destruction you know ? Everything else just bores me.

This is something that will completely revolutionize travel once big cities start rolling this out en-masse

I do hope it won't take long for there to be a massive on-demand electric car fleet of self-driving vehicles in cities. Heck you could make it mandatory for all I cared.

You can not thank someone for being patient, being patient when that involves "waiting for a thing to change that should not be there to begin with" is not a fucking choice. And if there is no choice, then thanking us for it is just rubbing the insult further in.

What the hell were we supposed to do besides waiting? Asking for a refund?

Season passes are almost always a losing proposition for me. Either the quality of the content isn't there or they take so long to release updates that I've long since lost interest.
I am the same way.
I found if I buy the game at release I play the shit out of it then I loose interest in it for a while.
Then a Steam sale comes along all DLC on sale and I'll grab what I am interested in if I still want more of the gameplay.
I too ended up buying season passes and never bothered with the content because I lost interest in the game.
Borderlands 2 was the latest game that ended up like that.

Same for me... I think I didn't even play the last 2 borderlands DLC's because the retarded leveling scheme locked me in super-hard-insane-1hit1kill-mode or super-bore-invincibility-mode for my favorite char.

Borderlands 2 was the last season pass I ever bought.

And I guess the real problem here was how the leveling worked, and how the DLC integrated (not at all) into the main game.

I just can't see this new Star Wars movie going the right way. And, this is coming from a guy who dresses like Star Wars characters in his free time.

What's the right way? ;p 1-3 or 4-6 ? ;p Do you honestly believe Disney can make Star Wars movies worse than 1-3 ?

And you think there isn't a cylon in each of these underground facilities? ^^ Human based security is the worst security when you can't tell who is what and from where.

You did WATCH BSG right? You know what happened when the cylons got ahold of the launch codes right? I think I'll take my chances with human unpredictability than with machine efficiency.

Why are you assuming I would be on the human side of the conflict? I am cheering for the killer machines!

Well, they seem to have nailed the car performance and handling if nothing else... And its pretty much all that matters to me. Graphics have been fine enough for a LONG LONG time.

Cars usually don't "bump,bump,bump" when driving down a decline.. so no, their physics are not up to snuff.. no correct 4 point suspension modeling

When their suspension is setup so low that the tyres are maybe less than 1cm from the body, then the answer is yes. Yes they do.

In which case these cars would be completely worthless in a race. If you drive properly, you can actually accelerate out of that decline into the curve.... when your car stutters down, you can't. As that is your tires losing contact with the track....

Either way, If that had NOT happened they'd have been faster than reality.... so reality still wins in terms of... realism

Aside that it looked pretty good. But when I see car behavior that was not in reality then I am getting skeptical...

And by the way, Nordschleife Nurburgring or bust (In a DTM car)

Or a modern Linux kernel based OS that has successfully passed an NSA audit.

You mean a kernel that's full of NSA backdoors and known but withheld vulnerabilities?

"Theory that buried garbage disappears is debunked."

Theory? Umm, modern science proves that MOST garbage DOES decompose and essentially "disappear" if you leave it in the ground long enough. So a bunch of plastic game cartridges didn't disappear, and that somehow translates to being the rule for ALL buried garbage, huh? Wow. Sad. Some elementary level schooling should be able to help you with that.

Most garbage is in fact, plastic.. which does not decompose. But aside that, you totally did not get the joke

They dug in a landfill for stuff that nobody with a brain doubted was there to begin with. To prove something.... namely that it's there. What a monumental waste of money

You mean de-evolution. Wasting away again in Derparitaville.


No such thing as de-evolution Evolution is not good or bad, it's a progress that all of nature sticks to. Trying to stop that is like trying to stop the earth from spinning.

Point being, derp ville is gonna be a major FAIL Since you'll be in it to, along with everyone else. At least as long as you use the Internet as much as you do ;p (And I don't exclude me from this) still, using wtf or ftw is not a bad thing imo. Given that you can know the meaning from the context of the sentence...

If you think Internet slang is bad, you never heard youth slang nowadays. But then, I am sure that's what all "old gits" say about youth slang.

Well, three solid games in a series is about as good as you can ever hope, I guess.

If by solid game you mean 2 games that are abysmal console ports ...

Eight-character passwordsówhen randomly generated and containing a mix of numbers, symbols, and upper- and lower-case lettersócan take months or years to crack

Uhuh... and these guys are working at an University? If you don't get my jab, the time it takes to crack a 8 char password is a lot less than 1 day.... if you spend 100$ and buy yourself a few Amazon cloud computing slots. Or maybe you just got a lot of AMD gpu's laying around.
