I am so excited about getting a chance to use a self driving car.

The one thing I haven't got my head around, is how is the car going to deal with finding a parking spot in those insanely busy mall parking lots, where people literally sit and wait for someone to leave? I feel special parking lots would be required, that signal when a spot is available and where.
 
Fully autonomous driving has always been the goal of our project, because we think this could improve road safety and help lots of people who can't drive. 

We're now developing prototypes of vehicles that have been designed from the ground up to drive themselves—just push a button and they'll take you where you want to go! We'll use these vehicles to test our software and learn what it will really take to bring this technology into the world.

Not bad for a Shiraz, which isn't typically my favorite grape http://www.vivino.com/s/55ceac28a3e69

I am reading a lot lately about #Uber  , as the City of Toronto just lost a battle in the courts.  I will start this by saying, I like Uber.  This is not directed at their politics, but more so what I can do with the app.  As a techno geek, I love that I can pull out my phone, request a ride and know exactly when that ride will arrive, as well as who will be picking me up.  I also LOVE that I don't need to worry about cash, and the transaction is fully handled online.  This is not only fantastic, it really is the only way it should be in today's era.  This brings me to the competition...

The existing taxi companies are up in arms.  They are seeing Uber as a threat to their current way of life, and there is a very strong potential that this will eat away at their bottom line.  Truth is, it will.. and I don't feel any pity.

Why aren't these taxi companies modernizing?  Why aren't they getting apps out there that allow users to do they very same thing.  They don't even need to develop any, many have already done so... such as +Flywheel (https://www.flywheel.com/),  Easy Taxi (http://www.easytaxi.com), Curb (http://gocurb.com), or Hailo (https://www.hailoapp.com/en/).   There should be little or no excuse.

If I were a smaller taxi company, such as the taxi companies in #MiltonOn , I would be jumping on board as fast as I could.  Of course, The Toronto companies could be adopting to get ahead of their competitors... but they don't.  You could technically even have different companies in different cities using the same app, such as flywheel, which would mean I could get the closest taxi no matter where I was in the GTA.  But,  they haven't.  Why not?

I can see why Uber is exploding.  They have very little, if any, competition in most markets.  It's not their fault, they are just pushing the boundary.  I for one hope the competition gets their act together before they are irrelevant.  Sadly, I doubt they will... they'll be too busy trying to maintain the past via the court rooms.
Grab a cab with the best taxi app for iPhone & Android. Flywheel allows you to catch a cab and pay for it all with your smartphone - no need to hunt for cash.

This is quite a story.  What a journey... amazing.
The San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) is one of the biggest media events of the year for pretty much all things nerdy (please note: as a huge nerd myself, I use that term incredibly affectionately). Started in 1970 as the Golden State Comic Book Convention, it originally showcased primarily comic books as the name suggested but has since evolved to include animation, anime/manga, toys, pop-culture collectibles and memorabilia, video games, fantasy novel...

Loved it! Probably more true than we would like to believe
The approximately 2,000 Canadians who still use landlines report that they are absolutely thrilled to speak on behalf of all 35 million Canadians in the form of polling data.

I had the Roma Burger. I am not sure if it was the basil, the feta, the spinach or more likely the combination.. But I enjoyed this burger more than most I have had! The lentil and corn salad was nice change as far as sides go. Anyway, try the Roma Burger, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I am a sucker for the Rainforest Cafe (and still bitter the Yorkdale one closed). I love the jungle environment and the pseudo realistic setting they attempt to convey. The food at the Rainforest is good, although slightly pricey which is to be expected, in my opinion. My only dislike is that they don't honour the Rainforest Cafe / Landry's members discount, although they will drop the tourist tax if you mention you are a member.
