You mentioned power tools having to be online activated.Next thing you know Power Tools will need to be activated and updated before anyone can use them.
The national registry will be available to anyone who wants to buy tools on the street.
Oh wait, we’ve already started doing that with block chain encryption.
This is why my tractor of choice is Massy Ferguson.John Deere and The American Farm Bureau Federation have signed an MOA so that farmers can work on their equipment but of course it doesn't go far enough yet but it's a start.
I see new work excuses coming.
On Wednesday we had a birthday party, my sister-in-law and her family had to be picked up. Their brand new Tesla Y, not even 2 months old had to be towed. Apparently overnight it Started an automatic Update and the car will not start now.. After talking with multiple Tesla techs over the phone and then trying to do push updates via the Internet. It never completed the update but it shows it did, and so they can't get it to do anything. They eventually had to have the car towed so they could work on it in person.
I highly recommended that he turn off all automatic updates if that feature is possible.
I'm surprised they didn't purchase those lease vehicles. I understand it's a money making transaction for those lucky enough to have leased one.Currently their only car. They normally have two but both vehicle leases ended within a month of each other and their second tesla on order is behind on delivery date. ...........
If I ever had the desire to own a car that needed regular updates I would want to choose to do the updates at a time that is convenient for me that wouldn't be an issue if their was an error.The comment that they are computers on wheels is an apt one. So far, we haven’t had any trouble with our model 3. It does its updates automatically. I’d agree the updates are probably worthwhile.
Thanks for telling us about the games. My daughter gave me a PS 4 because they got the new and improved one. Every time I turn it on it takes about 30 minutes to start up. I think I am doing something wrong but then it starts up.Somewhat relevant... This happened 15 years ago to the video game industry when the consoles became dependant on software updates to function. You can play Pong or Mario in literally seconds of booting up, but today's games can have you waiting an hour for software updates. This slowly manifested itself as a normal process just to use the product, and consumers just accepted it for the improvements each update brought. I left the hobby when you needed to lease the right to use the service quarterly or monthly.
It seems vehicles are next?
