I was under the impression there was some sophisticated algorithm involved in detecting EPA testing, when in fact they put the vehicle in a special mode for testing anyway. So VW just had to change a few parameters whenever that happens.

That does not exonerate VW, but it raises the question why regulators blatantly ignored the possibility of manufacturers optimizing their cars to improve test results. Yes, it is cheating, and VW deserves everything that is coming their way, but those regulators could also use some oversight.

Amazon and their stupid »LICENCE_ERRORs« when streaming: if you want to be remembered as the one streaming service to avoid, just ensure your customers get stuck in virtual fences all of the time.

Favorite quotations:

»So uncritically do we accept the idea of property in culture that we don't even question when the control of that property removes our ability, as a people, to develop our culture democratically.«
—Lawrence Lessig

»We establish no religion in this country, we command no worship, we mandate no belief, nor will we ever. Church and state are, and must remain, separate.
All are free to believe or not believe, all are free to practice a faith or not, and those who believe are free, and should be free, to speak of and act on their belief.
At the same time that our Constitution prohibits state establishment of religion, it protects the free exercise of all religions. And walking this fine line requires government to be strictly neutral.«
—Ronald Reagan, 1984

»An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.«
—Winston Churchill

»It is these kids - the way they are nowadays«
—12 Angry Men, 1957
