  2. How does that prove that it's not a safe car? Your list from Reddit doesn't distinguish between actual auto-pilot/car faults, or drivers just being stupid. It's not reasonable to demand that it's 100% fool-proof, but you can't possibly deny that those vehicles are massively safer than human controlled cars. How many crashes are there per day in the US? Tens of thousands... How many deaths per day? Over 100... Not sure what you're trying to prove... Having someone basically being able to fall asleep on autopilot should constitute an immediate sales ban in my opinion, until the feature is removed or tweaked to where a drivers hands need to be on the wheel to remain engaged, or better yet detects the driver is sleeping and pulls off the road.. Fully autonomous cars have to get state approval before even hitting their roads, and here we have people thinking they can just flip on auto pilot and take a nap. Fully autonomous cars have also shown that they're not ready for primetime. Tesla is reckless and toying with peoples lives in lieu of them being beta testers. The even more ridiculous thing is that not only can autopliot injure or damage the drivers car, they're putting other drivers, pedestrians at risk as well. There have also been fatal accidents where autopilot appears to have been engaged: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-43604440 https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=tesla+driver+sleeping I can also load up vids of auto pilot flaking out or failing to take proper action. Telsa safety ratings might show good crash test results in terms of structural safety, but no, they are not safe cars when people can be idiots without any checkpoints to ensure these tech features are disabled when the driver isn't paying attention. That same issue is just as common with aircraft (which have had automatic pilots for longer than ground vehicles) and military aircraft (more so than either commercial or private aircraft) - and in ALL those cases, such behavior falls into the "stupid operator" category - not the "stupid design" category. Do you even have a clue WHY automatic operations is even a thing - in ANY vehicle (air OR ground)? Have you ever taken a trip longer than two hours? Do you watch endurance racing? Let's look merely at endurance racing - they have driver changes - and teams of drivers - for a reason - it's mind-numbing. (The most famous of the Andrettis - Mario and Michael - have BOTH done it; they have both been on winning teams of the 24 Hours of Le Mans - two of but four Americans to make that claim.)
  3. The award-winning Tetris Effect lands on PC next week, exclusive to Epic Games Store by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe Tetris Effect, the PlayStation 4 exclusive from last year, is finally coming to PC, publisher Enhance announced today. The game will arrive on the new platform with additional enhancements next week, on July 23. However, Epic Games has managed to claim it as another exclusive for its store. The original PlayStation version went on to win multiple awards for its spin on the classic genre, visuals, soundtrack, and even the virtual reality gameplay. Speaking of, the PC version will support VR as well, with both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive systems being supported. The soon to be released PC version is being called the "ultimate version of Tetris Effect," coming with exclusive features like support for 4K and higher resolutions, uncapped frame rates, ultra-wide monitors, as well as various graphics options for tuning the experience. And here are the new PC version's minimum requirements: OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit) Processor: Intel i3-4340 Memory: 4GB RAM Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti equivalent or greater DirectX: Version 11 Storage: 5 GB available space Sound Card: DirectX 11 Compatible Additional Notes: GTX 1070 or greater recommended for VR Tetris Effect comes in at $39.99 on the Epic Games Store, but a launch discount has dropped the price by 20% currently. Also, those who purchase the game before August 6 will receive some extra digital goods like desktop wallpapers and a 7 track sample of the game's original soundtrack.
  4. Dear Community, good day dear Neowin-Expertts, I am starting a project - Arduino-izing LEGO Technic - and now I need some ideas for a car / vehicle to choose. This project starts out as a quest to find a way to combine the ease of LEGO Technic chassis building with cheap commodity electronics to motorize and remote control it. I was looking for a vehicle that is able to work for this. This could be a simple chassis: https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-your-own-Custom-Arduino-Remote-Control-and-L/ https://www.hackster.io/Notthemarsian/take-control-over-lego-power-functions-ee0bfa https://www.instructables.com/id/Raspberry-Pi-Remote-Controlled-Car-1/ This should be a part of a robotics workshop and therefore I need a LEGO-based platform for younger kids who grew up with Lego but cannot afford to spend hundreds of dollars to buy power functions, LEGO motors, IR remote, and EV3. Thanks to numerous examples on the net and several and Youtube tutorials on integrating Arduino with LEGO, I will try to start out with an interesting example. Starting point: the kids should be able to complete this project with a small budget and I hope to incorporate this into my robotics workshop in the future. The main thing is, I need to have the rear axle to be attached to a single N20 motor to move the kart forward and reverse via a TB6612FNG motor driver. Front steering can be controlled by an SG90 servo motor. i have chosen the Lego Service Truck 8071 - see here: https://www.lego.com/de-de/service/buildinginstructions/search?initialsearch=8071&ignorereferer=true#?text=8071 Remote control should be able to be accomplished by a cheap IR remote/receiver solution based on Arduino Zigbee Bluetooth I understand that the IR remote hardware (and the method) is pretty hard part to implement and learn about a remote control system so it was a perfect option for this car. Since this is just a proof-of-concept project and the design follows function - I need to have an idea. The main question is: How about LEGO Technic-8071 - the Service Truck? i have chosen the Lego Service Truck 8071 - see here: https://www.lego.com/de-de/service/buildinginstructions/search?initialsearch=8071&ignorereferer=true#?text=8071 guess that i can add the steering and motor with ease Question: where you would attach the motors !?
  5. Nogib

    AMD Freesync

    Exactly! Problem is a lot of monitors don't tell you the range in which FreeSync works and it makes it very hard as a consumer as a result.
  6. LaP

    AMD Freesync

    The monitor could be labelled as AdaptiveSync though.
  7. You understand that when you connect to a work vpn they almost always prevent split tunneling and force all traffic out their interface... Changing the local route table normally not going to be able to over come that restriction via the vpn application you are running.
  8. Xfinity Mobile is not meant to compete with Verizon heads-up - besides, the MVNOs with their BYOD programs (such as Tracfone) don't have such limitations Technically, I *could* switch to Xfinity Mobile, as Xfinity is my broadband provider; however, it would actually make no sense AND cost me more in the bargain. First off, as it is, merely as an Xfinity broadband customer, I can use their hotspots at a cost of zero - anywhere in the US. (Not just their residential hotspots, but the Comcast Business hotspots, too.); this is why I don't have a data bill - I use wi-fi for that. Xfinity Mobile is for those that need data, but travel outside Xfinity (residential or business) hotspot coverage. Even though I have been as far as Las Vegas, NV, even there I was never outside Xfinity hotspot coverage. Xfinity Mobile customers use Verizon's towers when outside of the hotspots. I, on the other hand, use T-Mobile's towers - and for voice, not data; because of Voice over Wi-fi support, except in extremis, I have no need to do even that. Do Xfinity Mobile customers even HAVE Voice-over-Wi-fi as an option? And there are more options - either currently or upcoming - for Voice-over-Wi-fi - Google Fi itself is one - I added that to back up Voice-over-Wifi last week - and that is all it's for - it uses an e-SIM slot and lets you use Voice over Wifi even if your carrier doesn't support it. What does it cost? Nothing.
  9. Three launches Nokia-backed cloud core network ready for 5G rollout by Paul Hill Three has announced that it has launched its 5G-ready “fully integrated” cloud core network in partnership with Nokia. The firm described the cloud core network as a “critical building block” for the rollout of 5G which Three expects to deliver in August this year. Three has already tested the core network with several thousand of its employees and has begun to migrate 4G customer traffic to it. The migration is expected to continue throughout 2019, and once finished will allow for “massive scalability” as more IoT devices come online over the coming years. Discussing the new core network, Dave Dyson, CEO of Three UK, said: “Our new core network is part of a series of connected investments, totalling £2 billion, that will provide a significant step change in our customers’ experience. UK consumers have an insatiable appetite for data as well as an expectation of high reliability. We are well positioned to deliver both as we prepare for the launch of the UK’s fastest 5G network.” Meanwhile, Bhaskar Gorti, President of Nokia Software, said: “This is an exciting time for both Nokia and Three UK, as together we work towards the future of telecommunications networks. This project delivers a joint vision that has been forged from the catalyst of Three’s strategy for complete business transformation. The project will deliver a flexible 5G core network, enabling the next generation of mobile services and cementing Three UK as a true leader of 5G in the UK.” Aside from the capacity benefits that the new core network brings, Three also placed an emphasis on security. The Nokia-backed core network uses all the latest security standards out of the box, thus ensuring data security for the network and Three’s customers. Three previously announced that it’ll be rolling out 5G around the country from next month. Initially, the launch will begin in major population centres such as London, Cardiff, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, and Liverpool before coming to other areas later on.

  11. Microsoft Exchange gets its own Fluent Design icon by João Carrasqueira It's been a few months since Microsoft first showed off the new Office icons to the public, along with the promise that they were part of a new design language across all of the company's products. Since then, icons have slowly made their way to more of the Office apps, places such as Your Phone, and even the upcoming Windows Terminal app. We're still keeping track of Microsoft's progress though, and recently, the company introduced a new look for Exchange, the e-mail client for businesses. The new logo retains the most identifiable elements of the previous one, including the E on the front, and the X-shaped pattern serving as the background. It also retains the blue color that's seen across many Microsoft products. Hello world! We've had a bit of a makeover, let us know what you think? pic.twitter.com/lO5kOzDTER — Microsoft Exchange (@MSFTExchange) July 15, 2019 Microsoft has been rolling out these new icons at a reasonably steady pace, but in the meantime, some users might be upset about the inconsistencies in design across the company's products. One particular case is that of Skype. Its new icon was among the first to be revealed back in November, but it has yet to make its way to users. Microsoft used it briefly with Skype Insiders on most platforms but quickly backtracked for no apparent reason.

  13. ^ Idiotic post of the day award. Not really, either they are a threat to national security or not. If they are then he's right, if they aren't or weren't then what was the point of all of this. Considering the allegations they were throwing against Huawei, nothing they have done so far, as least publicly, has been a fundamental change. Trump is a threat, maybe he should be banned from twitter. And cut their traffic in half? Not gonna happen. At this point, I'd be skeptical if Trump has stock in Twitter. LOL, i do not use twitter, i did years ago, but I found it useless. I can not stand seeing Tumps face and hearing his voice, so I certainly not want to read the crap he writes on Twitter. I feel sorry for people in the U.S who have to cope with him more than we do in the UK. You leave the EU yet? No, because our government is useless and now we will have to cope with Boris, Trumps brother i think Still, maybe BJ will have more guts and get it done as quickly as possible don't worry, your prophet sadiq khan will save you n huawei wow, now i can understand how the U.S voted for Trump, it seems like the whole country is racist, coming out with stuff like that. Strange really, since most of the people in the U.S are descended from immigrants who killed off most of the locals. Sadiq Khan is over 140 miles away from me, he is also in the Labour party and the chance of them getting in power is pretty slim.
  14. More dumb limitations. There's zero reason you shouldn't be able to bring every unlocked device that supports the Verizon LTE bands.
  15. Xfinity Mobile's BYOD program now includes recent Samsung phones by Jay Bonggolto Xfinity Mobile's BYOD (bring-your-own-device) program used to support only unlocked iPhones since Comcast announced that option in January of last year. Today, the wireless service expanded the program to include more recent Samsung phones. The list of supported devices is not comprehensive at the moment, though, and only Samsung handsets released over the past two years are on board. That means you can bring only your Galaxy S8 series, Galaxy Note8, Galaxy S9 range, or Galaxy Note9 to the program. Those are on top of your unlocked iPhone device, of course. Comcast promises to roll out support for other Android phones in the future, as noted by Engadget. The company is also offering a deal for those who will make the early switch before August 4: $100 worth of prepaid card. Activation and access for unlocked Samsung devices are free, nevertheless. Of course, the program requires a post-pay Xfinity Internet subscription. Comcast adds that area availability of the service is limited.

  18. Trump would only use a different service, keep him there in one place, where we know where he is. Saying that i would love Twitter to ban him, that would be so funny. He would move to Gab or Minds, where Blue Checkmarks would have no power.
  19. Got it on both of mine and have for a very long time. Not me still isn't. I’ve had it for at least two years on one of mine. Another for a year. I use Apple TV now because it is much faster than Android TV but yeah, checked today and it’s still there. Got it from the Play Store on both of them. I thought about getting the Apple Tv. I am not impressed with the Android TV devices at all. Very slow and glitchy. HBO Go had no sound and now it doesn't play at all just gives an error. Was this a true AndroidTV device, or a knockoff with a version of android and custom interface? If the price doesn't scare you, try the nVidia shield, if you want cheaper, try the Xiaomi Mi Box I’ve mentioned several times in this thread that they are Sony AndroidTV devices, nothing custom and not a top box I have a Sony AndroidTV and I'm really happy with it (also, I didn't read every post in this thread, just this one for whatever reason) They were fine when I first got them but as updates came in, they started suffering for it. It’s probably more Sony’s fault than anyone else.
  20. My office VPN (F5) changes route 0.0.0.0 so that all traffic goes through it. I want to change it to default gateway and add only specific VPN routes. When I do route DELETE 0.0.0.0 route ADD 0.0.0.0 MASK 0.0.0.0 192.168.201.20 METRIC 1 IF 10 I see that route table is updated but any DNS request fails. Routes before (IP is changed for security reasons): Active Routes: Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 On-link 1.2.3.4 1 Routes after: Active Routes: Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.201.20 192.168.201.238 11 I tried flushing DNS. Still no results. What would you recommend? OS: Win7.
  21. I gotta chime in too, I've had prime video on my Sony AndroidTV since I had it around 3 years ago now. I do agree that you've been unable to chrome-cast prime the entire time though, this is new.

  23. A lot of people gave up their Blackberry's because they had no choice. Their phones were garbage where even having a physical keyboard wasn't enough to save them. A physical keyboard is the best! I could type on my phone without looking at it! Physical keyboards FTW!!! Were? Still are apparently. Watched JerryRigEverything demonstrate one of the newer Blackberry phones missing adhesive for the screen to the back panel, meaning it will fall apart much more easily. Don't know if they'll ever get their business together at this rate...

  25. I consider the non-LTS release similar to the release cycles of Fedora... just not as bleeding edge. You're basically a beta tester to the eventual next LTS release, it's just not openly stated. About what I thought of these releases too. That being a beta tester. Thanks
