re: Another pitbull attack captured on video - Korkstand
[quote]I’ve never seen another even WILD animal do something like that just out of the blue. [/quote]That's because wild animals are afraid of people. Not only are these dogs used to being around people, but they have also had fear bred out of them and tenacity bred into them. ...

[quote]What are the chances the sign modifications would have tricked real drivers also? [/quote]I mean it kinda looks like an 8, so I'm sure there are people who would think it was an 8. But hopefully people would be smart enough to know that the speed limit isn't really 85. If anyone was dumb enou...

[quote]Yeah, I mean Waze is pretty damn accurate for speed limits by itself [/quote]I just RTFA and a couple others, and it turns out the system does cross check what it reads from signs vs what it knows from GPS data. So it looks like this vulnerability only works under these specific circumsta...

re: Researchers at McAfee were able to trick two Teslas into autonomously speeding up by 50 mp - Korkstand
Awfully nice of all these researchers to provide free R&D finding bugs and whatnot. That said this seems like one of those things that you'd cross-check vs. a database of speed limits by location, plus I don't know place a hard limit on the max speed as well. :lol: ...
