  1. To me i see the whole "Car as a service" will probably only be a niche thing or situational. Self Driving car will happen but driver-less faces problems the law being one of them (Not saying it wont happen but will take very long for it to happen). Trains are far more easier to make completely driver-less and only quite recently becoming driver-less, i think majority still aren't driver-less. Planes can takeoff, fly and land themselves but still have a full team of pilots, even during autopilot one pilot must be at the controls. For cars i see the law stating a driver must be at the wheel all times even when self driving and probably will take some time to get to the point were the law changes they probably first need to prove them self. Also the number of cars wont change and traffic wont go away even with self driving cars because lots of people need to be at work at the same time. As for buying habits, people don't just buy the most convenient car that get you from A to B. Buying a car is extremely personal, people buy SUVs, 4x4, big luxury cars, supercars because they can not because the need them. You need many things for cars as a service to happen, drive-less cars and mass adoption, peoples buying habits to change, and people to get use to the idea of less convenience and having less mobile freedom. If self driving cars become mandatory, which will only happen once mass adoption has taken place (My guest probably 30 years or more for this to happen). Biggest out cry will probably motorbikes as they will probably be banned.
  2. The trick is to copyright your face and sue any company that does facial recognition when done on you. Since governments care more about copyright infringement then privacy or any other crime.
  3. This would probably only apply to phones, tablets, cameras, etc which are designed to have a recharge port. If they wanted to go completely port-less then this would not apply to it. It might stifle innovation an extreme small amount but honestly looking at connectors used over the last decade it really hasn't affect innovation yet so why would it in the future. The lightning port has been around for 7-8 years if ports were so important for innovation apple would have already changed it to something new.
  4. To me Apples concern has nothing to do with innovation and more to do with customer choice. As always its all about MONEY. If they must use Type C customers have far more choice in chargers and accessories. Third parties no longer have to get the Made for iPhone certification. Edit: Apple knows that if you have lightning everything you less likely to switch to another manufacture for your phone. As for this standardization it will be good for the consumer. Can you imagine what a disaster it would be if governments didn't not regulate the plug type all houses must use.
  5. Generally power stations dont output at 230v. Here they output at 20 000V generally. They transform it to 132kV or as high as 765kV for transmission. At the sub station it is about 11kV and only once closer to domestic properties then transformed down to 230V. Quick fact to produce the 50 Hz signal the turbines in a power station spin at 3000 rpm. For 60 Hz they will spin at 3600 rpm
  6. The only real risk is to there income from fines. As for the statement that knowing where the police is puts them at risk is BS, if people really wanted to harm police they can just call and report a fake crime then have them go exactly were they wanted. As for checkpoint it will now mean they actually have to patrol and do there jobs.

    Golden Visas

    Watched the WAN show and found it odd that Linus and Luke mocked Malta for being able to "Buy" citizenship, them not be aware that this practice is pretty common. A lot of countries actually have these type of Visas, they called Investment Visas or more common name Golden Visa. The US, Canada, UK, Sweden and a lot of other have the similar type of visas. For Quebec its $1.2 million (CAD) QUEBEC, for the UK its 2 Million GBP UK. You get a visa either permanent or for a long period then can apply for permanent citizenship.
  8. Who actually uses Spotify Family Plan at $15 or even at $10 for solo when you can get Youtube Premium Family Plan for $9 a month which includes Play Music for you and upto 5 other.
  9. This might just have the opposite effect than what they think it might. Example if a creator has 12 012 345 subs its will round to 12M but what happens if the loss say 15000 subs. The actual subs will be 11 997 345 but due to the rounding down it will display as 11M. Effectively making it look like they just lost 1 million subs.
  10. The small ones i doubt will be enforced but they have said that big companies like Netflix or Steam, if the don't comply will be block. And if its a video about the ruling party that they dont like they will also enforce this. This is why the are going to be taking the bill to the constitutional court as this is a form of censorship.
  11. I think it was illegal but was never amended to keep up with modern technology or there were loopholes. So they updated and strengthened the laws around this.
  12. Agreed. We know that this is aimed at the likes of Netflix and other streaming platforms just for Cash. However it may have unintended consequences. Even by this bill the Presidents Twitter Videos will have to be classified LOL.
  13. South African circusparliament passed the Film and Publications (FPB) Bill last week. The FPB is South Africa's classifications office which classifies films, games and other publications with there rating system similar to the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) in the USA. The Bill was passed with the premise of protecting children from mature content online. It allows for the criminalization of Revenge Porn and Child Porn. However the bill also states that any distributor of film must have there film classified by the FPB and must be registered as a distributor. This is were things get ugly. This means that if you share any video, post any video on Youtube or Facebook you will have to have your video classified before you are allowed to post that video. Even include Livestreaming, which is impossible to classify before posting. Here are the implications if you do not follow this Law. Who does this bill apply to? Everyone whos content/film is available in South Africa ie. Steam, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, etc. This basically means all Youtubers such as LinusTechTips, Jays2cents and Gamers Nexus, must have there videos classified by the FPB if they make there videos available to view in South Africa.

  14. Spending $5000 it must be OLED or better, no VA LCD panel is worth that much. GSYNC in the living room is actually a negative, as freesync would make it work with consoles and pc (Nvidia and AMD).
  15. This is scummy beyond compare. The only reason this game exist is because of your backers and now you screw them. Where is Valve with all this Epic stuff? They should start stepping in and blacklisting companies that start pre-order on steam then at the last moment swap platforms. Removing all there previous games on sale on steam. Can you imagine the outrage if Microsoft decided that if a developer wanted to have there game on the XBox that they can only sell there game on the Windows Store for PC.
