I'm trawling InternetOfShit Retweets right now so... I will be posting a few:
"self-driving cars will have to answer split-second ethical decisions, instantly calculating the worth of the lives of the people around them. can AI solve the trolley problem?"
self-driving cars in reality: i swerved onto the sidewalk because i thought the moon was a stop sign

"We’re starting a small test of in-headset ads with a few developers in the coming weeks. We want to help developers generate revenue and help people find great experiences at better prices—this is a part of how we’ll create a healthy, self-sustaining platform for everyone."
my own thought: I'm so impressed that someone could make me less interested in VR
OK THIS IS THE BEST INTERNET OF SHIT STORY
From a story about Prince Phillip:
“In more recent years, I am told, he extolled the joys of his Kindle until, disgusted by all the direct marketing of books he didn’t want to read, he threw it in the bath.”
they bought him... a cheaper Kindle... with the ads.
This also confirms why third party ODB2 scanners don't currently work with newer BMWs (BMW is making reverse engineering the protocols very difficult) - my cousin sold a VW, bought a G30 (3 series hybrid) and gave me his scanner as it didn't work on his new car (I've since used it to add new features to my 2015 VW Polo 6C and diagnose a faulty sensor, and saved at least £200 ($271) doing so.
(Tip: buy slightly older cars 😉 )
