A San Francisco Question: What Three Brands of Car are So Special Their Owners Don’t Need to Worry About Front License Plates?

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

1) Porsche. This brand has gotta be the #1 offender in Frisco. The funny thing is that Porsches in Germany have front license plates, but low aspect ratio American license plates apparently mar the good looks of these rides stateside.

2) Tesla. I mean, they all look the same from the front without a FLP, right?

Just one after the other…

Same-o same-o:

3) BMW. I don’t have a shot of a recent BMW without an FLP, but they’re out there, all over.

Why is it that regular ppl have FLP’s and richers don’t even though they should?

Seems odd…

There was ASSMAN, as seen on Seinfeld, and now this, TUSHI DR, as seen on the Streets of San Francisco:

Assembly Line Production of Self Driving Cars is Here: A Brand-New Bolt, One of 130 – Hayes Valley Meets Uncanny Valley

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Look what I saw coming out of Hayes Valley – it’s VEHT2079, a brand-new self-driving Chevy Bolt all the way from Orion Township, MI. It’s different. Notice the white thingamajigs above the front wheels:

At first I thought it could have been a Project Titan from Apple, but no. It’s just an updated version of what we’ve seen for a while now.

Of course that’s the human minder in the driver’s seat, but is that the robot in the passenger seat? Let’s ENHANCE:

I’ll think of him as Frisco’s Star Trek Data, or Johnny Cab 2017, but you make the call, Gentle Reader

Off they go, a boy and his robot:

But not without a few Grove Street hassles. I mean, that’s what GM is doing here, a kind of driving torture test, right?

And all this is just one block away from the Hayes Street block where Anthony Levandowski’s long-forgotten self-driving Pri-Bot used to get parked, right?

The Future is Now…

Summer of 92, in All It’s Glory

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

You know when I think of the Summer of 92, I think of all those movies I never saw and never will.

Nah, actually this shot makes me think of the ex-CHP ’84 Mustang LX I sold right afore I moved here…

A Y-Combinator Startup Named FLOCK is Mounting License Plate Scanners in the Street Trees of Frisco – Here’s 20th and Guerrero

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Check it out, Gentle Reader. Via Mike Murphy, we see this:

Early stage: This surveillance startup wants to put cameras in your neighborhood – The cameras already have captured evidence of two crimes

That leads us to this:

Capturegfgrrrr

And that is the intersection of 20th and Guerrero, call it 3699 20th Street if you want:

Capturefsddddgtghh

Just look at this poor Indian Laurel Fig (Ficus retusa) – it’s literally in “poor condition” already and then Y Combinator / Flock nails on a license plate camera to monetize the sidewalk trees of Frisco by spying on you and yours?

Sure looks that way.

And this is just a block or so away from Mark Zuckerberg’s San Francisco residence?

Sure looks that way.

So this is/was a “demonstration?” How long did it last, one wonders? And SFGov signed off on this?

Mmmm…
