Tesla Autopilot avoids a crash before it happens

This is why AI should be driving instead of humans. In the not too distant future people won’t need driving licenses anymore because cars will do more of the driving for you.

Tesla’s Autopilot 8.0 has a particularly clever feature: it uses radar to track road activity two cars ahead, helping it avoid danger that you wouldn’t normally see. And it now appears that this tech just averted a disaster. Dutch Model X owner Frank…

Alien: Covenant (Trailer)

Why do the plots of Alien movies have to all be the same? Travel to new planet, find Alien eggs, bring aboard ship, crew gets infected, Alien busts out of chest, shower scene, naked woman, Alien kills crew, one person lives. I’ll still go see it because it takes place in space and I have a thing for space movies.

Link (PG-13: Gore, Language) We just opened our first Christmas present, and it’s got a xenomorph growing inside of it. Get ready for a return to the darkness, jump scares, and psychological tension galore as Ridley Scott returns once again to the Alien universe.

Tesla’s Autopilot will now stick to the speed limit

Why wouldn’t the auto-pilot follow the speed limit from the start? What is the use case where the car would need to automatically pilot the driver at speeds faster or slower than the speed limit?

Autopilot-enabled Teslas are about to become slightly more conservative drivers. The company’s latest software update will match the top speed to the posted speed limit when the vehicle’s Autosteer function is engaged, TechCrunch reports today.

Comment: There’s something really odd about Consumer Reports’ MacBook Pro battery test results

This is a little odd. Why would the battery be so affected by Apple’s own Safari and then totally unaffected by Chrome?

‘Consumer Reports said yesterday that the 2016 MacBook Pro was the first ever Apple laptop that the organization couldn’t recommend, due to battery-life issues. That in itself didn’t strike me as too odd. Different users have definitely been reporting very variable results in times of battery life, and some of them have been well below half the ten hours that Apple claims.
