    [–] SpaceX will be ready to transport humans in April 2019, NASA estimates. JBWalker1 2 points ago in space

    So do they want to just keep it relatively sterile temporarily then? Like where do they see Mars in 100 years? If they see it as completely sterile now and want to keep it that way for now then what would be the point if they don't think it will still be sterile in 100 years? Unless they want it to always be like that along with all other planets but then won't that leave us to only ever having minor operations on other planets? Like a small team in a small dome without ever expanding it too much.

    [–] Construction crew steals guy's power JBWalker1 3 points ago in videos

    Is you're indoors all day the trick would be to turn it off for a minute every 5-10 mins. They'll think it's a problem with their tools because there's never a situation where the power source keeps going off and on. But yeah then you call the police.

    [–] Hardware 3.0 is coming next year with 10X processing power! JBWalker1 0 points ago in teslamotors

    you cannot beat performance per watt at this level.

    Does power usage at this level matter? How much of the battery goes to the computer? 0.5%? I've not seen numbers for each.

    [–] Woman livesteaming thinks she's got her uber driver JBWalker1 1 points ago in videos

    It's just like watching a talk show. We can watch Stephen Colbert or Conan talking for an hour with celebrities for an hour on TV, or listen to people talking on podcasts for hours, or listen to radio talk shows for horus, and that's mostly all live streaming casual stuff is about. Instead of it being on a radio or something it's a live video of the person instead. People watch it for the persons personality just like they'd listen to a casual talk podcast for the specific hosts personality. I mean I don't really watch them either but I can see how it can be related to those other things. Some will have a really engaging audience too, like the streamer would recognise peoples names and everyone will be part of the inside jokes and stuff.

    Of course you get the ones that just show cleavage while doing Yoga and stuff but they are only a few these days, they used to take up most of the irl streams but they're only a very few of them now.

    Some of them are cool for showing the local area, like there are often Japanese/tokyo ones which are cool to see what it's like in all the super flashy arcades and stuff.

    But yeah I can just see why some people like them, I've had them on for background noise and stuff sometimes, just like modern radio.

    [–] The bus driver thought I hadn’t tapped my bus card which ended in me getting a free ride. JBWalker1 17 points ago in MaliciousCompliance

    Worth it. They get like 20 people on in 30 seconds whereas if people used money it would take 30 seconds for that 1 person. Does suck if you don't have a card for the night though, but it's just like not having any change on you I guess and it's probably much more likely to no have change on you than not having a bank card, and oyster card, orrr a phone with contactless payments on(almost any recent phone). It was a good change.

    [–] V9 Update will introduce new level of autonomy JBWalker1 7 points ago in teslamotors

    Yeah I agree if it's safer it should be rolled out, what I'm saying is that it shouldn't be the car companies who are selling the car to determine that, it's conflict of interest. The companies are there to make money and we can't trust them with this stuff no matter how good Tesla may seem. I mean cars have to go through thorough testing before they can be sold in the first place right? Like all the safety and emission tests they have to pass because we can't trust them to pass themselves. So if we're making a huge change to how these cars can operate then why's it so farfetched to ask for them to be recertified for the self driving system? It's the same thing.

    Just like how medicine companies have to spend ages getting their stuff approved by the FDA or whoever, self driving should be the same with another government organisation.

    Sure you trust Tesla but if GM came out tomorrow and said they have level 4 autonomy for a car on sale tomorrow there's no way you would trust them and there's no way they should be allowed to release that car or update without detailed tests and proof.

    [–] V9 Update will introduce new level of autonomy JBWalker1 8 points ago in teslamotors

    Tbh I wouldn't want any car to have level 4 or even full level 3 without needing to pass super strict standards and like a full year of testing on roads without any accidents due to the self driving.

    We've seen more than enough times where self driving cars haven't detected something when they should have, we've even seen videos of Teslas autopilot driving high speeds into a solid barrier with people inside. The chances of simple stuff like that happening must be pretty much 0 before we move on. Car companies should have to have any car thoroughly tested by a third party if they claim it has level 3 or higher. I just don't see how we can trust a company with that stuff without it being fully vetted by a government organisation or something, especially since they're going to be making profits from selling the cars. Bugs and errors in software happens no matter how good the developers and engineers are.

    [–] Hamilton security JBWalker1 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in london

    Is it cheaper to get an Oyster card? How much is it? What shall I do when I go to London? Where can I buy a toaster in London?

    Get those types of questions all the time, not even the toaster one is an exaggeration. Can't wait until everyone has grown up with Google and knows how to use it. Though I'm not sure who the types of people are that uses Reddit enough to actually make posts asking basic questions here but also doesn't know that it's quicker and easier to just Google them, I thought you'd unlock the Google skill long before you reach the posting to Reddit level. We need Yahoo answers back.

    [–] This girls voice is insane JBWalker1 2 points ago in videos

    I'd normally record something like 10 seconds of this as a reminder of the moment, I'd do the same at concerts too. I don't understand recording the whole thing like you say though, you're not going to be watching it all back, you'd find her music online if you want to listen. Definitely wouldn't bother recording it all if 100 other people are too :p I just try to ignore it though, seeing things like it used to really annoy me but that's not good.

    [–] The New Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Helps You Get More Done from Wherever You Are JBWalker1 0 points ago in Android

    Probably only about 2 of their phones these days which is a lot better. But with the Galaxy S you also get the absolute best specs for the time, best camera, best processors, the absolute best screens, etc, so it is more justifiable for the Galaxy S to cost more. The latest Galaxy S Tablet on the other hand does not have the top specs though so it shouldn't be priced as such. It is also priced much higher than other premium tablets whereas with the Galaxy S phone it is priced in line with the other premium phones.

    So there's still no justifying the price imo

    [–] The New Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Helps You Get More Done from Wherever You Are JBWalker1 5 points ago in Android

    That's even lower speced though, that's like saying the Galaxy A phone series competes with the latest iPhones, they don't. The tab A only competes in price, it's specs are much more outdated. It even only has 2gb of ram which is bad for Android these days.

    [–] The New Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Helps You Get More Done from Wherever You Are JBWalker1 19 points ago in Android

    It's also $650 whereas the latest iPad is $329. The Galaxy Tab S line is always overpriced and using old specs. They always use the 18 month old processor and charges 50-100% more than the latest iPad which has a newer processor. Like everyone else says when you're charging that much why not chuck in the latest specs? Even though It's a nice tablet and I'm not a fan of iOS I'd still choose the iPad if I HAD to buy one just because the Tab S is too expensive.

    I know it's lower specs and the screen isn't as anywhere near as nice but Xiaomis Mi Pad 4 has the same amount of memory, has a Snapdragon 660 processor which scores only about 20% lower than the 835 in benchmarks, but you can get it for $220(can even get the 3gb/32gb version for $180). So you can get THREE of those for the price of 1 Galaxy Tab S, I just can't justify the Tab S price. It should have been $400 or so, still more than an iPad but I'd understand that the screen they use costs more so that would justify the higher price.

    There must be one chinese manufacturer using latest specs, or even an 835 equivalent, for about $300 or less? I can't see any though.

    [–] Supporting display cutouts on edge-to-edge screens JBWalker1 2 points ago in Android

    That is the product of one of the biggest companies on the planet that have been making phones for like 7 years and who is the developer of the OS that is on the majority of the worlds phones. Kinda crazy. I just don't understand why, especially when you have companies that are tiny in comparison making that phone design look like a joke. A bunch of engineers got paid a lot for that.

    Eh whatever, I guess the line will just die again like before. Time for yet another rebrand.

    [–] Orange is the New Black - Season 6 Discussion JBWalker1 1 points ago in orangeisthenewblack

    I don't think it goes that far in reality, especially not with twelveee random people. I get that there's bias but choosing 12 random people these days with that little evidence against her I don't think they'd all jump to that she definitely did it especially when you have the white prison warden saying otherwise. Plus 1 of the jury was black(intentionally low imo), and 3 looked asian but i'm not sure how relevant that is. Just 3 of the 12 people would be needed to say they're not sure, plus 1 is black. 75% of people aren't racist enough for it to be enough of a factor imo. But it is what it is I guess. I've been on jurys where people are idiots and vote guilty if it is just most likely even if most likely was only 70%(when it should be like 99%). It's just bs overall.

    Doesn't change that it's against the rules here too. Subreddits still have to follow the Reddit wise rules on top of the subreddit specific rules. It's in the sidebar too, don't post links to pirated content.

    [–] No one ever gets one over on her. She's the ultimate survivor. JBWalker1 8 points ago in orangeisthenewblack

    Seems so easy to get people in trouble there. You do something to yourself and blame someone else and the guard pins it on them without question. Happened like 4 times without effort and they all worked.

    [–] Taystee & S7 Prediction JBWalker1 2 points ago in orangeisthenewblack

    All of this should have happened this season. Taystee should have went down for murder at around episode 8 or so, then in the final episodes you'd have people trying to prove her innocence, like Caputo stalking the coroner and gathering evidence, cindy and suzanne coming forward, etc. The first half of the season had barely anything happening and the end had too much things to wrap up so suddenly and left many things unfinished as usual. It seems like it should only be a mid season break right now, such a shame.

    [–] Orange is the New Black - Season 6 Discussion JBWalker1 5 points ago in orangeisthenewblack

    sn't this the very definition of "reasonable doubt"? There were witnesses that saw her point the gun at him. There were no witnesses that saw her shoot him.

    Exactly, and it only takes 3 or so people on a Jury to not be CERTAIN that she is guilty for it to be thrown out. It's unbelievable that all of them agreed that she definitely did it. Sucks.

    [–] Yep rivers are real. JBWalker1 5 points ago in NoMansSkyTheGame

    changing the algorithm to cluster terrain features into certain sizes and place them near to other specific types of features. It would go a long way toward making it feel a little less pulpy. I would love to be able to navigate a region of a planet by its terrain.

    I think they're saying having it more like Minecraft. In No Mans Sky it's pretty much what you see in a 1 square mile area will be the same as the rest of the planet, it's just the same terrain and landscape features repeated over the entire planet, so once you explore 20 mins of a planet then you've seen it all.

    Whereas with Minecraft and the type of terrain there it's not the same repeated non stop, it's still just a variation of about 10 or so terrain types but it's better than just the one. For example in Minecraft you could have flat fields for miles, then you could have huge mountainy areas for a while, then it might just be hilly for a while. Then some parts of those will have forests on, and some parts won't have anything. Then some parts of those will have many rivers going through them but 5 miles away on the you might not find rivers anywhere. That's what Minecraft does but it should be so much easier for No Mans Sky to mix things up since Minecraft overworld tries to be mainly realistic whereas No Mans Sky has lots of weird alien stuff to mix in.

    Basically he wants the planets to have biomes, or at least a change in terrain landscape and features around the planet, and it's what has been heavily requested since the game came out. The planets don't have to have completely different biomes, like icy on one side and fire on the other, but at least have huge areas with specific terrain. Minecraft does it better still.

    [–] Miniatur Wunderland: Largest model train set JBWalker1 5 points ago in videos

    Ahh it would be so fun to be building this as a job. Making all the systems that controls it all would be best. All the software and automated charging stations for all the cars and everything. I'd be so excited to go into work the next day to continue working on it and making it bigger and better. I'm not even someone that has any miniature model stuff but it would be perfect.

    [–] Orange is the New Black - Season 6 Discussion JBWalker1 14 points ago in orangeisthenewblack

    Yup the coroner thing annoyed me, it didn't really come up and was dismissed right away. And I get why Cindy didn't want to publicly say what she saw but why when she gave information to Caputo did she give him almost none other than "look into the guards, taystee didn't do it". Why couldn't she give a proper anonymous statement saying that she heard that the pepper bullet killed him outside of the pool room, that he was dragged in by several guards, that they planned to use the specific coroner at the time to cover it up, etc?

    I dunno it just seemed like not much happened, sure the court case scenes were decent but it seems like the arguments for and against were just "I'm a good girl and I like helping people and had a bad childhood and I held the gun for a few seconds but then put it down as people have said", and the argument for was "people saw her point the gun at him but not that she fired it". That's all we saw anyway, surely there would have been a lot more?

    I just think it was a bad season, not much happened for the first 2/3rds, only the last 3 episodes really had proper content. Too much stuff just didn't go anywhere.
