Activation of the firmware update process of the electric vehicle NIO ES8 led to his stopping in the middle of the road and blocking all functions — including not allowed to open the doors and lower Windows. Thus, the owner of the car was trapped inside his car, and ways to get out of it is simply not there.
The incident reportedly happened during a test drive. When a driver with a company representative walked along the Avenue canyonites in Beijing, on screen controls display a notification about the availability of new versions of the software.
After the driver started the upgrade (to NIO ES8 she performed “over the air”), onboard computer, all functions of the car blacked out, causing the driver with the passenger trapped inside the electric vehicle for more than an hour remaining all this time in the midst of one of the busiest streets in the city.
The company car manufacturer recognized this incident as a bug and has promised to deliver all of its production from such a marriage.
Recall that the Korean company Samsung has patented a gaming smartphone. In addition to the top of the filling, he will receive a flexible enclosure which can be folded like a book. Among other things, the price of the device will be a huge, and insiders report that it will be over $ 1,500. See whether the device is on the shelves, or is it another useless patent.
Earlier Znayu reported that Roskomnadzor once again disgraced after being hit by Google. It is reported that due to violations of Russian laws Google must pay a fine. However, we are talking about the amount of 500 thousand rubles, which is very little for search engine. Much easier to pay a small sum of money than to adhere to the laws of Russia.
Znayu wrote that the court sided with Apple in the litigation between Apple Corporation and Qualcomm. Recall that sales of the iPhone banned in China and in Germany. And yet, the court dismissed several allegations of violations of four patents. It seems that Apple will soon solve the case in their favor.
