  1. Off tapioca but in false rape claims it’s always seeems to be reported that the person who made the false claim won’t face punishment unless it can be proven that the claim was made maliciously. What you’ve said seems to contradict that. If your right it seems false rape claims should be quite easy to deal with.
  2. CSDeath - Apples' CSS Conundrum

    Seems like the specific site had been blocked. I also got a 403 error when trying to visit it on my iPhone and iPad. I wanted to crash my stuff 😭
  3. The article linked on the sub reddit I read this on mentioned that Belgium plans to amend their gambling laws to specifically cover loot boxes if EA is successful in arguing their case under the current laws.
  4. https://www.ntsb.gov/investigations/accidentreports/pages/HWY18FH014-preliminary.aspx The car didn’t explode and the fire fighters were able to extinguish the fire. The batteries are designed to prevent runaway failure of every cell in the battery. https://www.inquisitr.com/4987033/teslas-are-not-more-prone-to-fire-than-other-cars-says-ntsb-investigator/ the NTSB feels that Tesla’s aren’t a fire waiting to happen. So far in the US Tesla’s are at 5 fires per billion miles driven while ICE cars are at 55 fires per billion miles traveled. We just don’t hear about ICE cars catching fire because it happens about once every few minutes. Obviously Tesla’s aren’t the only electric cars but I think it’s safe to assume other EV makers will have similar or even better records then Tesla.
  5. I’m kinda confused when Nissas would sell a battery manufacturer when electric cars seem to either be the future of have a very large part in it for personal transportation and maybe more.
  6. I don’t see how this isn’t asking for a back door. Using Apple, the police could ask for all the iMessage data but it will be encrypted if it’s just pulled from the storage and useless I’m assumng. The only way to use it would be to decrypt it which requires access to the Secure Enclave I would assume as that’s the only place the key(s) are stored. How is this any different then what the FBI asked?
  7. Elon taking Tesla private?

    Not at all. Recently someone put that to a vote and they voted to keep Elon. He was also recently approved for large payouts if the company hits certain milestones. Elon has stated in the past that he disliked/hated taking Tesla public. He regrets that PayPal went public. He kept SpaceX private. Elon is the one pushing for Tesla to go private not shareholders.
  8. I’m not saying it was wrong to bail out those companies. Ford actually never risked bankruptcy and instead took out a loan so it didn’t have to compete with subsidized companies. My point was that Tesla isn’t being propped up with subsidies. The actual money they have borrowed from the government has been payed back. They do have tax deals but so does every company.
  9. They didn't get a bailout. They got a ~$465 million loan that they paid back years ago with interest. The bailout of GM and Chrysler lost the government $10 billion. Ford still owes a few billion from the loan it took from the government. I think Tesla is a better investment then the other american automakers based on the government's past dealings with them. https://www.thebalance.com/auto-industry-bailout-gm-ford-chrysler-3305670 https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2013-05-22/tesla-pays-off-its-465-million-loser-loan
  10. This is a terrible solution that Tesla actually worked on with the S and dropped it. Batteries are massive and expensive. You would have to have huge facilities to store enough batteries to handle the volume of traffic a current gas station handles. I believe the battery in a Tesla costs around $10,000. Just ten stored batteries is $100k. They will come down in price but I can't see how companies would want to store large numbers such valuable items at hundreds of locations.
  11. They knew where the kids were when he died. He was on his way back after dropping of oxygen I believe. The water levels were higher though.
  12. Diving equipment isn’t straight forward to use. Add in ~10 days of no food and the inability for some of the kids to even swim makings diving a deadly challenge. A Tai Navy SEAL died on the dive the kids would have to do.
  13. They are repairable in the US. For whatever reason Apple Canada currently has no way to repair them it seems.
  14. Apple now powered by 100% renewable energy

    Except these kinds of statements only ever seem to be leveled at Apple. None of the other tech giants seem to get stuck with any unpleasant baggage from their supply chain. This is also a thread about Apple using more renewable energy but people feel the need to point out unrelated stuff to bring them down. It seems like bad is bad and good is bad. Could Apple do more? Yes. Does that invalidate what they have done? No.
  15. Are these bot fights limited in any way? I think a few things I read on it was that the champs were limited as well as items and it's only 1v1 instead of 5v5 which would reduce the complexity for the AI. I'd love to see a 5v5 game with Ai vs pro team with all items and champs if those limits I mentioned do currently exist.
