that's a pretty blinkered view! you've gotten like 80% the way there and then missed the subtle but important point that things can be directionally pretty good and it's still a complicated landscape where, weirdly, some people in the "richest country on earth" end up worse off

I mean maybe it becomes a ticketable offense and the van itself is able to document the event and send the data directly to police? like a mobile speed trap shit, I just realized this is definitely going to happen

Why Apple chose Austin: 1. It's already their biggest office outside Cupertino 2. Austin still makes tech. Name another U.S. city with an absolutely cutting-edge chip fab. 3. β€œIt’s all about the talent"
