No evidence of consumer harm??? Oh, that's a good one. Let's imagine if grocery stores ran like cable providers. Here's how I'd see it.
Based on where you lived, you could only shop at a specific store. You had to by your groceries in "packages". You need a gallon of milk? Well, we'll need you to also buy some butter, sour cream, and cheese. That box of cereal? Sure, here's some oatmeal and bran flakes...We think that'll go pretty good with your choice of cereal.
Oh, and the store will close at random times. We'll leave a number out front that you can call to find out when we'll be open after listening to our nice library of hold music for 3 hours.
If this ever happened, you could just imagine what the outrage would be.
Wait until this tech makes it into 3D printers...Trying to print some figures for a miniatures game? Sorry, that design is protected under copyright. If you'd like to continue printing, please swipe your credit card. Thank you...
I'll stop using my ad-blocker as soon as sites start properly vetting their ads for malicious code. You don't want me visiting your site, fine. That's the wonderful thing about the internet. I can just go somewhere else to read the same article.
This is EXACTLY what is wrong with society today. No one wants to be held accountable for their actions. If you hit my car you are required to report it...It's NOT a choice. If your car does that for you...Good.
With most automated car systems, it's normal to be called through OnStar/Sync/Uconnect system when the airbags deploy. That's one of the safety features. If you are injured and/or unconscious, emergency services will already be on their way without you needing to call 911.
This is nothing to lose any sleep over. I accept this in favor of my life possibly being saved by the automated system if I do end up being in bad accident.
First rule of looking at feedback. Throw out all the 1 star reviews (competitors) and 5 star reviews. Most sites tell you how many reviews users have left, so someone giving a 1 star or 5 star review with less than 10 reviews is suspect.
