Self-driving cars will be safer than us. How long until human drivers are banned?
Self-driving cars will be safer than us. How long until human drivers are banned?
30 years, tops, before humans are banned from driving on most public U.S. roadways In urban areas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Possibly sooner. - Sean McBride
many many decades. - Brian Johns
Cars individual transportation modules may themselves be banned long before "driverless" cars become even a blip on the radar much less human operators banned Please See aircraft and locomotives et al - WarLord
The article brings up a valid point. It may be more about legal and ethical issues than technical ones. Besides, I want to see a driverless vehicle drive me to work in winter time with snow and ice covered roads through four foot snow drifts without clear visual references as to where the road actually is. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

Where did you buy them? - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
They had a little help from my husband... ;o) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Last week I saw a Facebook post from about an upcoming spay/neuter event, and even tho I have chihuahuas not pit bulls, I texted them to ask if they had spots open for us. They texted back that pitties come first, but depending on turnout they might be able to help.
So I got a text at noon saying Bring em down & me, Jayden, Daisy & Violet were there in 15 minutes! And not only are Violet & Daisy getting free spays, but full vaxx & microchips!!! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
And a few leads on dog friendly housing and rehoming Daisy & Violet <3 - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
That's wonderful news! - Anne Bouey
I was crying like a sap because I was so overwhelmed by the generosity - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Oh, that's awesome. - Anika
They were some of the last dogs operated on so when we went to pick them up, the tents & tables & stuff was getting packed up, and one of the ladies brought me a tub of gumbo & a tub of collards, leftover from their lunch from a local soul food joint. Bonus score! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Oh, that's great! - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
I hope your housing will work out! - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

We've run out of rules for the moment and have moved into the dissertations. So far this morning I've been instructed on: Not using polish remover (wear clear polish only and let it wear off. I'm betting the polish is as bad as the remover),. Also, that my desire for a brown bed quilt is wrong thinking. White is better b/c the dog grime can be..
...bleached out. Better still, now the quilt is sanitary (Ive not had a dog ailment yet, and I like brown). Finally, Agave is better n my tea. You may want sugar but here, have agave. There's honey too, and sugar, but the agave is best (as she puts it in my tea). - Shannon - GlassMistress
We've been up less than an hour. I already have a headache. My brother will be here at noon and it will get worse. We are broken people. It's really, rather sad. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I've declined a smoothie ... Am now learning how good they are and how much fun to make.... - Shannon - GlassMistress
Just reading this makes my head spin. :) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
We can do a full day of bickering in twenty minutes ... Not exactly a good thing :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
She is now shopping for a bed cover for us as a Xmas gift .... Brown is not being considered. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I hope this is a one visit per year rule on your part. - Janet
Whooboy, Shannon. - vicster: full-bodied
Part of our discussions have been her living with us in her dotage .... Big, big sigh - Shannon - GlassMistress
^^Then she will be subject to your rules, requests, demands, and dissertations. Priceless - Janet
^^lawd I wish! but I doubt it. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Break through the bs and try to get her to talk about herself. Talking about all the things sounds exhausting. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

Given how much 11.4 broke I’m hesitant to install iTunes 12.
With iTunes it's more like: if it kind of half-ass works now, don't risk breaking it completely with yet another mediocre update. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
"The damage from an underground fire in downtown Calgary Saturday night was extensive, "completely destroying" the electrical infrastructure involved, the utility company said."
It was an unground fire of the electrical infrastructure itself. Could easily be related to residual pools of water (from the devastating Calgary flood) in conduits and other raceways that spead a fault current beyond normal containment. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
We live 145 km from Calgary, but our Internet/IP TV service (Telus) has been down for 48 hours now -- and it's directly related to this meltdown. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Could explain network connectivity issues to some of our locations. Bet it is going through Calgary servers. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

Canada's first Thanksgiving: Frobisher set stage for our celebrations in different spirit than U.S. -
"The first Thanksgiving celebration by Euro-peoples in North America was not in New England but in Newfoundland by Martin Frobisher, 42 years before the Pilgrims. Frobisher's Thanksgiving was not for harvest but homecoming. He had safely returned from a search for the Northwest Passage, avoiding the later fate of Henry Hudson and Sir John Franklin. Given the fierceness of Arctic winter and the tragedy of these other expeditions, we can understand why he was grateful to come out alive. But why a special thanksgiving? Frobisher sailed under Elizabeth I, whose reign was marked by gratitude from beginning to end. For her first 20 years she held public thanksgiving simply for having lived to ascend the throne -- having escaped the fate of her mother, Anne Boleyn, at the hand of her sister, "Bloody Mary," in the previous reign. Ten years after Frobisher's return, England gave thanks for delivery from the Spanish Armada. And in her last speech to Parliament the great Queen began "We perceive... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

The Flickr app is a bit greedy
The Flickr app is a bit greedy
It's got some sort of stupid cache bloat (the Tumblr app has the same problem.) Uninstalling and reinstalling reclaims the space. - Jennifer Dittrich
Same with the Dropbox app -- 2 gigs for no reason, logging out reclaims it. - Stephen Mack
I read about folks uninstalling/reinstalling, but that seems somewhat futile. (FlickStackr behaves better in that respect.) - Stephan #TeamMarina
FlickrStackr is pretty good - I was having trouble with the editing piece, but for uploading it is mostly great. - Jennifer Dittrich
It's pretty good. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

"According to Edward Snowden, people who care about their privacy should stay away from popular consumer Internet services like Dropbox, Facebook, and Google." - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Bookmarklet
But, Eddie...what's that in the upperleft of the screen? Did you do that interview in Google Hangout? lol - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I especially like that they had to update the article after DropBox informed them that they actually do encryption. No need to check on facts the first time through, eh? - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Doesn't dropbox offer a convenient recovery for your files? In which case their encryption is reversible. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
indeed. i trust Dropbox about as far as i can comfortably spit out a handful of razor blades. - Big Joe Silence

I think I'm going to have to make a change. In Firefox, I'm currently logged in using the FB login. I started Chrome today and it wants me to login (I guess that cookies expired). The FB login isn't working. Reading the above comments, I'm thinking I should switch back to native FF username and password and reset the password.

A friend of mine has been a hard-working, loyal employee. Although he doesn't agree, all the signs are there that he was set up by his employer to fail. After 33 years he is now being discarded like trash.
Loyalty in business rarely works both ways. I keep telling a colleague of mine there's no benefit to him getting stressed at work and putting in extra time as he'll get no thanks from above and will get as shafted as surely as if he'd not bothered. - Mark H
This happens, too often I'm afraid. - Eric - It's My Thing
the mistake i made 15 years ago when working in publishing. - Big Joe Silence
I agree with you all. Another example of how employees shouldn't feel like they owe anything. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Loyalty should be both ways - in the age of fungible employees not so much - WarLord
Being loyal doesn't mean not being prepared. - Todd Hoff
True, Todd. He should have seen some of the signs. He seems unwilling to fight it. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

Every single day my work Exchange account gets locked out. Favorite solution: forget about corporate email?
Is it possible you have an iDevice trying to connect with an old password? - Stephen Mack
No, when I checked last night the only device listed is my current iPhone. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
But the account does get locked out due to password issues. Maybe someone forces me to take a break from email. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Only thing I can think of is my laptop trying to connect to mapped drives with the old password. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Something is trying to connect. If you have admin rights you can try this script - Eric - It's My Thing
I don't, but thanks for the link, good info. (When a network share shows as disconnected in Windows I didn't think it would still try to connect, but I'll find out tomorrow.) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

Second lunar eclipse of 2014 will happen tonight! -
Second lunar eclipse of 2014 will happen tonight!
From the page: "This total lunar eclipse will occur on October 8, 2014. It will be visible from North America, parts of Australia, China and Japan. Parts of South Asia, and Eastern Europe will see a partial eclipse. The penumbral phase of the eclipse will begin at 8:17 AM (08:17) UTC on October 8, 2014 and the eclipse will end at 1:32 PM (13:32) UTC the same day. The Moon will be totally eclipsed (totality) for about 58 minutes. This will also be a good time to see the Draconid meteor shower, which is expected to peak on October 8-9, 2014." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
It's a late one -- for the West coast of the U.S., the penumbral eclipse begins at 1:17am, the partial eclipse begins at 2:18am, and full eclipse begins at 3:27am. Maximum eclipse at 3:55am. - Stephen Mack
There is a slight chance I won't be witnessing this. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

Update for those who follow us here. We are done with chemo. My wife wanted to try a 5th chemo, but she is unable to handle it. the latest MRI is bad. Family has been visiting this week. They have seen a decline in the 5 day they were here. She probably has 3 months. My focus is on her quality of life. More family will be visiting.
I am actually in a good place, it was tougher when she lost her communication a few months ago. I have shifted into the caregiver mode. - Mike Nencetti
Oh, I'm sorry to hear that Mike. I'm glad that you and Beverly are surrounded by family at this time. - Anika

I want to live life, instead of life living me. Do you know what I mean?
I am having the same thought. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
I'm glad that we are pretty easy going types who know how to kick back and relax. However two things happen to me: 1) I start to freak out about how much I have to do. 2) I can't seem to make time to get out and enjoy the world enough. Just little things like going to the farmer's market, or for walks on the beach or in the woods, or to meet friends for a drink or coffee. I need more of that stuff. - Laura Norvig

Great, the dog must have met a skunk. That could also be the one who’s been stealing the cat food.
That sounds likely. Sorry the dog's stunk up. - Spidra Webster
It's not bad but enough that she will have to stay outside tonight. I Was unable to find the skunk in the dark, will have to chase it away tomorrow or it will never leave with winter approaching.

Sherif: "EFF more interested in protecting predators and pedophiles than in protecting our children."
Everybody knows growing kids need their keystrokes transmitted unencrypted across the internet! It's how they get their vitamins. - Jennifer Dittrich
I think EFF did a fair job in researching the software. To drag "the children" into this is such a sign of weakness, such a pathetic attempt to get people behind you. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
There must be a term similar to Godwin's Law, but they bring in "Won't someone think of the children" into it. If not I am going to suggest it be called the Helen Lovejoy Law. - Me

Why can new iOS apps store data on iCloud without requiring permission to do so? Should default to disallow and ask.
I dunno. Not everyone would be aware of an app storing on the cloud and would want to know that's going on. - Spidra Webster
Exactly. It's probably something innocent about sharing data between devices but still. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Oh, I totally read you wrong! I thought you were saying the default *should* be to store data on iCloud. So that's the default, eh? - Spidra Webster
Yeah, just installed a game yesterday. Just went to check on storage and noticed how iOS reported the app used space in iCloud. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

iOS 8 observations (iphone 5): (a) auto from portrait to landscape is not always functioning. Several apps just run upside down sometimes.
(b) Autocorrect is sometimes completely non functional. Even words like itunes aren't corrected. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
(c) Custom keyboard shortcuts starting with a capital are now not expanded. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
The only game I play no longer plays sounds. The other game I used to play lost all my data with iOS 8 so I no longer play it. :-/ - Amit Patel
Autocorrect is now correcting correctly spelled words into incorrectly spelled words. This is weird. - Amit Patel
(d) Input fields in Safari sometimes vanish "under" the keyboard when starting to type. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Amit, I have the same thing: correct words are incorrectly "corrected". But the apple type words like Apple (see now it didn't and did correct) are often not capitalized. Plus autocorrect is goofing up, plus the suggestions above the keyboard are sometimes incorrect words or just garbage. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
And sometimes a game starts upside down and doesn't rotate. MS Remote Desktop does that too. Or it does it after a few tries. Always functioned immediately with iOS 7. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
(e) Safari sometimes seems to lock up and become unresponsive while typing comments on a number of websites. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

Apple is such an amazing company in so many ways. How come iTunes is so awful, and has been for so long? As they have migrated its functions off to the cloud, iTunes really has exactly one job for me now, to put music on my phone. At that, it completely fails. Here we see my music, stuck in "Other" and unable to be played. Jolly good show, iTunes.
Here we begin unsyncing all of my music, trying to reclaim the Other, and then resyncing. I've put six or seven hours into that so far, with no luck. - Stephen Mack
Oh good. I thought that was just happening to me. On one hand, I'm glad I never relied solely on iTunes to store my music, but now, out of thousands of songs only like 600 of them are playable on my iPods. - Anika
iTunes is a huge POS - Jeff (Team マクダジ )
I always assumed misuse of "other" was iOS's fault... - Andrew C (✔) from Android
How can you tell what is in the "other" section? I've noticed my other section has been growing as well. - Friar Will
I was just having this moment while I was trying to clear stuff out on my phone. At this point, they should have a far more robust management utility that is /separate/ from iTunes. There's no reason for the two to be married together once the cloud sync stuff came into play. (FWIW, on my phone most of the "other" was comprised of data bloat for a couple of applications, Flickr and Tumblr being the worst offenders.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Oof. There goes my plans for buying an iPhone if my Nexus 4 ever dies. I love my iPod nano, but I've never been able to easily sync my digital music with my phone, and I'd like to do that someday. Looks like Apple isn't helping that happen anymore. - Holly's favorite Anna
Andrew, you may be right that it's iOS's fault. Hard to separate out where the fault is, really. - Stephen Mack
There are third party music sync apps. Any of you use them? - Stephen Mack
Will, per the Apple support communities ( "Other" data is real data including your system files and cached content that you put on your device by using the built-in apps. It's just that as you use the phone, it will grow. This includes: Messages and attachments Contacts Reminders Safari bookmarks and cache Email messages and attachments Calendar entries Genius data Music catalog and cover art Operating system settings Game Center status - Stephen Mack
I haven't experienced issues like you have Stephen, but I have had a difficult time setting the sync just right. No matter how many times I uncheck sync movies, it took iTunes ages to realize I don't want movies on my iOS devices downloaded to my laptop. iTunes has usually been pretty good with my music, though. However, if it weren't for the fact that 90% of my music were ripped from CDs, I wouldn't sync with iTunes at all, since syncing iPhone with a computer is so '00s to me. >_> - Arlan K.
After iTunes Match, I don't think I've intentionally synced my device with iTunes since. $25 a month is so worth it. EDIT: crap, yes. $25 a YEAR. See, this is why I didn't do poker last night, my head was wonked up. - Jonathan Disher
You mean $25 a year, Jon. :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Other is the data the apps build up. Under Settings > General > Usage you can see each app by total size and inside of each you can see how much is taken up by locally stored data. I delete and re-install Facebook, Twitter and Vine about once every 2 months to clear the cache. - Johnny from iPhone
$25 a YEAR? Hmmmm.... - Arlan K.
Johnny, that's a good tip. In my case, though, it's music that doesn't sync correctly and can't be reclaimed. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
itunes makes me crazypants. I had some songs that I could not get removed from my phone no matter what i did. what i discovered was that the itunes setting was set to show all store purchases and itunes match uploads, even if they had never been downloaded to the phone. so all those random freebies that i got from itunes over the years were always showing up on my phone. SO DUMB. ITUNES IS CRAZYPANTS. - holly #ravingfangirl
I recently found dozens of old CDs I had in the garage. I've sucked them into iTunes, and they they automatically get synced to Google Music. iTunes is just the CD ripper. Once they're on Google Music (or Spotify), you're covered. - Louis Gray
Sorry Louis. Google Music streaming doesn't work too well for me. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes, $25/year. Bad brain. - Jonathan Disher
Got much worse this evening -- almost all of the phone was locked out with "Other." There are 11 pages of people experiencing the same syncing issue that I had that led to this mess ( Now restoring the phone to factory settings and starting over. What a mess. - Stephen Mack
Factory reset and restore from backup and seven hours of syncing overnight seem to have fixed things. And the battery life seems a bit better too! - Stephen Mack
At least you can sync. That's more than what I get with 11.4; it crashes when syncing apps. Every time. It's enough to give up and never sync again. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
So is a factory reset the equivalent of turning it off and on again? - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Wow. What a hassle. I'm sorry it's sucking so badly. - Spidra Webster
Stephan: I'd say turning it off and on again is equivalent to turning it off and on again. Factory reset is more like when you take every single item out of your house and put it on the lawn so you can clean the house out of dust and bugs. - Stephen Mack
Spidra, thanks. Sounds like Stephan has it worse than me! - Stephen Mack
iTunes :-/ - Amit Patel
