elong must is just trying to save lives with his computer cars. he needs to save 60¢ per car to achieve this, so who cares if he singes a few babies that should be have carried spare 12V batteries?

your car is smouldering and licks of flame are beginning to shoot out from the undercarriage, your children are in the back seat. quickly take your 12v battery pack, remove the cover from the bumper, connect the battery to the auxiliary power terminal, and hope that enough of the car comes online to allow you to use the rear door handles.

my nissan leaf was totaled by a drunk driver last week while it was parked. the accessories lost all power and i was still able to get my grocery store loyalty card out the next morning. thank you for making a car instead of an electric death cage, nissan

i just saw one of those bmw i3s IRL. goddamn they're goofy looking.

also i think i may be living in a bourgie hood. there's a tesla model s, a volt, and that i3 all on my block

i work next to a company that manufactures electric car chargers, and they have “free samples” in their parking lot. so it’s convenient for commuting in an electric car and loling about electric car design

i see an i3 with the license plate “KIC GAS” every day and it just makes my morning

touchscreens in cars are bad and wrong but people will keep pawing at them so whatever

i think the selling points of apple CarPlay is you have standard APIs to use the physical knobs and buttons and Siri to control your phone, and since your car’s infotainment is just a passive display, it updates when your phone does. but you have to use siri and apple maps

all i know is with my dead nissan leaf and overcast and bluetooth, the “forward” button on the steering wheel is supposed to skip forward 30 seconds so I can ignore lovely subscription service ads, and it only worked 1/10 times. usually it would skip forward 30 seconds, play 5 seconds of audio, and go back to ad, so i always used my phones touch screen instead.

just like elon musc envisioned, except i never died in a tube

what when my nissan's keyfob battery died, i could pull a regular mechanical key out of it to unlock the door, and hold it up to the start button to start my car (i guess there's a backup rfid chip in the key and sensor in the dash?) how is "keyfob battery dead and no internet connection/server down" not a scenario they planned for lol

So Ol' Musky has the tracklogs for his private jet hidden on FlightAware and the like.

Turns out that a bunch of Airplane Nerds put together a network of receivers that aggregate the ADS-B transmissions from airplanes, and their take is 'the data is broadcast, unencrypted in the open so we're not going to participate in something stupid when it doesn't do anything to actually improve security' so here's where you watch to see when he heads up to Burning Man for the weekend

am i reading this wrong or are you suggesting that aircraft in federal airspace should either not broadcast their position unencrypted or airplane nerds shouldn't record unencrypted broadcasts? It's a bigger safety concern that private sport pilots can know where other planes are including private corporate jets and carrier jets in relation to them in uncontrolled airspace than the fact that airplane nerds can log where elon munsk is

What

The planes must broadcast properly, being in airspace is being in the public. There is no right to privacy.

Everyone is supposed to know where other planes are at all times, it prevents crashes

that was my question. my reading of jimmy carter's post was there was some kind of perceived privacy/security risk to ads-b being unencrypted and/or privately received/stored, either by jimmy or by the burning man people. but that undermines the purpose of ads-b

i've met government and corporate workers who are working with a subject they are passionate about and would do for free (especially in scientific research fields). also i've met government and corporate workers who don't care about the subject of their job and are just running the clock and trying to do the least necessary to not get fired. maybe its not a government vs industry issue but a result of alienation of labor under a capitalist system?
