Let Tim drive
Just after mentioning the need for a rebirth of LORAN,
BBC broadcast a TED-like symposium on self-driving cars. One of Satan's major battlefronts. Remove human autonomy, place everything in the oh-so-exquisitely manicured hands of Tim Cook.
All the TEDers make a point of mentioning that WHO has declared automobiles to be a "public health epidemic". None of the TEDers ask why WHO is wasting its time and energy on Satan's pet shit, instead of NOTICING ACTUAL FUCKING VIRUS EPIDEMICS. I guess that's intrinsically obvious to them. Saving actual lives of actual people in actual African countries is uncooooooooooooooooooooool. Dark lives don't jack up the share value of GOOG and APPL, so they don't exist. Dark lives are less real than "dark matter" to a techfag.
All the TEDers make the implicit automatic assumption that GPS and radar and other sensors are unhackable. This is crazy.
GPS is being jammed right now in Korea, as mentioned in previous piece. Radar has been hacked and spoofed and jammed for 70 years. Radar in an automotive context is easy to spoof. Fooling the HiPo's speed radar has been a profitable little industry for 40 years. Acoustic sensors? Navy research has been working for 70 years on jamming and counterjamming and fooling sonar.
And how about the problem of recognizing a pedestrian? I'm rather sensitive to that one, after getting whomped by an SUV in 2008 because the driver was phoning his girlfriend. Could this improve my chances?
Here's how they plan to do it:
"For instance, a pedestrian carrying a device that says I am a pedestrian..."
Confirmed pedestrians are old or poor or anti-tech or drunk. We are exactly
the people who don't habitually carry "devices". Therefore you'll need to forcibly implant "devices" in pedestrians. Microchip us like dogs.
formerly stupid and weird conspiracy theory, now hardass reality. The 666ers and the schizies were right all along.
