This is clearly user error.

When it’s been advertised to the user as “full self driving”, is it?

Furthermore, the car can’t recognize the visibility is low and alert the user and/or refuse to go into self driving?

I wouldn’t trust Musk with my life either.

But, presumably, we have moved beyond the age of advertising snake oil and miracle cures; advertisements have to be somewhat factual.

If a user does as is advertised and something goes wrong I do believe it’s the advertiser who is liable.

Right. But can you blame the user for trusting the advertisement?

If the CEO isn’t ruthless in their pursuit of increasing shareholder value they will get booted and may even be breaking the law.

I’ve heard they must maximise value by law, it seems that was wrong. If that’s not literally the law, then that’s a relief to hear.

Either way, the line must go up. Can’t continuously deliver a good service: if growth starts flatlining it is made more predatory.

Perhaps not exclusively so, but it could’ve convinced some to choose a Tesla over other EV’s.

I guess Musk hadn’t yet fired enough people after closing their entire charging station division.

The Soviet Union was – claimed to be – communist. That is not the case for Russia.

Much like China now has incorporated many capitalist systems.

Yeah… Germany has so much renewable energy they’re bringing coal plants back online.

Good guy Norway on the renewables though. Definitely not one of the largest crude oil exporters either.

That said, I do like the idea of converting excess energy to hydrogen. If only there was an energy source that wouldn’t cause global warming, would be a great base load next to more fickle renewables, and which could be diverted to generating hydrogen when demand for energy is low.

The TPM is a feature of the motherboard, not the CPU (generally).

You can even get separate TPM modules to plug into your MoBo, if I’m not mistaken.

Discord Shuts Down ‘Spy Pet’ Bots That Scraped, Sold User Messages (www.404media.co)

Discord banned a mass of accounts that were part of a service that scraped and sold user data, including messages posted across servers and what voice channels they joined, 404 Media has learned. The move comes after https://www.404media.co/a-spy-site-is-scraping-discord-and-selling-users-messages/, called Spy Pet, last week and...

No. But if you keep a lot of fish really tightly packed in the same place those parasites will have a much easier time spreading.

tb_ ,
@tb_@lemmy.world avatar

Yes… But with open net fish farming you get more fish with parasites and more parasites per fish. So it was a lesser problem before.

Yeah but generally it’s unfeasible to find out every (public) server a particular user is in, now you can just search for them.

It, at the very least, lowers the barrier to stalking by a lot.

$56 billion could pay 56 thousand workers $100k per year for ten years straight.

Instead they laid of thousands of workers not making anywhere near that sum.

Yet this one man deserves all that “value” he personally surely generated.

YouTube is testing a feature where it’ll pop up a button to intelligently skip ahead if you skip once, or so I’ve heard.

That sounds a lot like sponsorblock.

Though it won’t be fully automatic.

Leaked NYT Gaza Memo Tells Journalists to Avoid Words “Genocide,” “Ethnic Cleansing,” and “Occupied Territory” (theintercept.com)

The New York Times instructed journalists covering Israel’s war on the Gaza Strip to restrict the use of the terms “genocide” and “ethnic cleansing” and to “avoid” using the phrase “occupied territory” when describing Palestinian land, according to a copy of an internal memo obtained by The Intercept....

Regardless of the negative connotations the word should technically have, it’s been sorta green washed. It is a noteworthy term to use when it isn’t applied elsewhere (e.g. Crimea)

Updates specifically, initial install still gives the pop-up.

From my recent experience both the main F-droid app and Droid-ify can do silent updates. Not sure how automatic they are though.

It mentions her donating earnings from books she sells as well as award prizes to NGO’s, and it mentions her travelling on her parents’ dime.

Those award prizes can go into the 6 and 7 figures, apparently.

I love looking up reviews for every little thing I purchase, and even when I do ads nor microtransactions ever get patched in at a later date! Same goes for those service agreements which aren’t ever updated!

Oh, wait, no. That’s exactly what happens.
Nor do I want people who aren’t as tech savvy/in the know to get preyed upon/swindled.

tb_ ,
@tb_@lemmy.world avatar

This is such a stupid argument. Not everyone is tech-literate. Ideally people wouldn’t have to look out for this because the practice wouldn’t exist. “Just don’t get robbed/swindled lol, you should’ve known better”.

And no, I’m not trying to advocate for whatever sketchy device is linked above. What I am saying is that I understand the sentiment, because that manufacturers are increasingly encroaching on our ability to own what we buy with parts pairing and always online requirements.

tb_ ,
@tb_@lemmy.world avatar

What you’re talking about is right to repair.

You put it like that’s unrelated, but it’s all part of the same scheme through which we own less and less.

In my opinion the buyer shouldn’t have to beware, but I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree on that.

No, you’re right. It was a bit dismissive of me.

Though rather than convincing just my local elected officials I’d rather also convince others out there, whom might become an additional voice for those local elected officials to hear.
