Default Samsung TV's "bricked"

Lets hope, listening to today's news about testing driverless trucks
piloted by one driver that nobody hacks those.

According to today's 13:00 BBC One news, they will all have a driver but
the rear two just sit there. The lead truck generates a wifi hotspot
which allows the two rear trucks to drive very close to one another and
to respond faster than a human. Why not do away with the wifi control
link, do away with the two rear drivers, do away with the two rear cabs,
connect the rear two trailers to the driving truck with sturdy tow bars
and bingo!

We're moving into a new house next week with a central heating
controller which allows about a million combination of settings together
with an eBUS box which allows all the bits to communicate with one
another via a two-wire serial bus. For goodness sake, it's a kettle with
a pump!

I, not for the first time, despair.
