Troubled Anthony Levandowski’s PRIBOT Prius, Last Seen Banged Up in the Western Addition Six Years Ago

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Was reading this…

Fury Road: Did Uber Steal the Driverless Future From Google? Inside the vicious patent fight over self-driving technology. By Max Chafkin and Mark Bergen

…and that reminded me of this, the last time I saw PRIBOT, the ur-car, left forgotten on the mean Streets of San Francisco:

Poor Pribot!

In closing:

“He’s an asshole, but he’s our asshole.”

Is This UBER Filming an S-Class Mercedes-Benz Driving About Frisco’s Financh?

Friday, December 9th, 2016

And when I say UBER, I mean some people hired by UBER for some marketing effort.

And when I say filming, I mean videoing, or recording, or whathaveyou, as it’s prolly a digital camera what Bro was pointing out of the back of the black SUV, as seen on California in the 94104.

Anyway, one Googles and sees:

Uber Has Apparently Ordered $10 Billion Worth of Mercedes S-Class Sedans. That’s a lot of expensive luxury cars for an app dedicated to undercutting local taxi prices.

Perhaps there’s a connection here, IDK.

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me 100,000 self-driving Mercedes Benzes?

Question of the Day: How Likely Is It That This Truck Parked on Geary in a Red Zone Will Get a Parking Ticket?

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

It might be a dead-bang sure thing that the owner of the pickup parked on the left would get recorded by the camera in the #38 bus on the right, but IDK:

I’d never park there with a MUNI bus in range, that’s for sure…

HoistCam? Napa CHP HoistCam! – May 4th, 2015 – Rescue at Tennessee Beach, Marin County

Monday, May 4th, 2015

A very Coast Guard-style rescue up in Marin County:

“On May 4, 2015 at about 1:15 PM, CHP Helicopter H-32 responded to assist the National Parks Service and the Southern Marin Fire Department with a rescue. Earlier, a woman was out on Tennessee Beach and was swept out to sea. She managed to swim back onto a cliff, but the cliff was inaccessible to rescuers. H-32 was able to hoist her to safety, and also evacuated an NPS lifeguard and ranger to safety, as the waves became too treacherous. Another example of multi-agency cooperation in the efforts to keep everyone safe!
