Technology could end drunk driving, and the US may even mandate it - Roadshow Two US senators plan to introduce legislation that would equip every new car with technology to block drivers who are over the limit. The poll is pretty clear. I voted no. I almost never drink, and when I do, I don't drive. This would be an annoyance to me every time I operated my car, and an unnecessary expense. i could see it as a court-mandated thing (they already have these things now), or an option, but not a requirement. And yes: It could be "worked around" by someone else pushing the button for the drunk driver, etc. But that's on them, at least, too. Also, yes, it would likely malfunction from time to time. Which would be ridiculous when it happened. But the poll asks "if it works as expected" which for the purposes of the poll means that it works as well as, say, FaceID or TouchID on an iPhone.
I got this a month or two ago (the iOS app only shipped at the end of August, and it wasn't fully featured at that time). I need to email them to figure out how to use the wrist portion if you don't use a glove. But otherwise… I'm looking forward to experimenting with this more.
http://www.apple.com/customer-letter/ Thoughts? Basically, the FBI wants Apple to hack its own product (by creating a new version of iOS) and Apple is refusing to do so for reasons stated at the URL above. The iPhone (a 5C) belonged to one of the dead San Bernardino terrorists. I - along with the EFF and ACLU - support Apple in this and think that the FBI is once again reaching and attempting to use PR to set a precedent that will make it substantially easier to subvert privacy.
