Dizzyingly in depth comparison between Google Maps and Apple Maps and where they might be going in the future by StudentRadicalin fempire

WRT the entrances the answer is they're crowdsourcing- after every google maps journal they're asking me if I was taken to a street entrance and if not to place a pin for one. Standard google but I'm happy to tell them if it means I get the right directions next time so I doubt they'll struggle

Like, whether they can work under ideal coniditions should be what they test before they get anywhere near a real road. Real roads should be testing for "what if someone tries to fuck with this, just like they obviously will?"

The single weirdest thing about American online culture to me by StudentRadicalin just_post

My high school in the UK was pretty cliquey but not in a backstabbing way, just in a "kids can be really cruel" kind of way. There was loads of drinking, weed was pretty rare, and there was sex for the more popular people but not much of it was casual. I had a fucking miserable time but also I wasn't a particularly nice kid either.

It's a ridiculous wasteful ponzi scheme but the people we were making fun of in 2013 who've cashed out what were once relatively small amounts are now obscenely rich. I found the records of the wallet I had when I first started using them and I put 10BTC in it for a little while (which cost like £30 at the time) and sold it later for like £100. It would be worth £75000 now and some of those guys put in like, life savings at those prices. I have genuine serious concerns about BTC not crashing, not from a "if only that was me!" perspective but from a "I am worried this system is going to be incredibly destructive before it fails".

To be a better representation of the game you should have to watch the first minute ten times to be allowed to watch the second

All of those things really. You can insert adverts mid-content to someone who's already watching, the views are considered more valuable because you're actually likely to be focused on them, etc.

Dems the last year or so especially... They're nothing. They stand for nothing, do nothing, are willing to sell out literally any principle if they think it moves them closer towards being in power but then they lose anyway. aghhhh
