Pilots Criticize Boeing, Saying 737 MAX 'Should Never Have Been Approved'
Jack, I think the world has been changed to believe that the gizmos and gadgets in our lives tell the story, tell the truth. All of society seems to have moved into believing that electronics communicate reality and that you have to believe what these magic devices tell us. Older folks like us who grew through the time into the information age, know that the devices can be wrong, can be fooled, can report incompletely and we know that to truly understand, we need to know what the device is attempting to help us do better. They have no knowledge - well most do not. They have information collected by humans, coded and placed in their memory for future reference.
The problem as I see it is that we have begun to accept that the machines know better than we do; that because they can see and recall so much more information, they "know" best how to respond.
Until they don't...
And then the humans who accepted all the "knowledge" and response these machines are capable, have indeed taken the lazy route of not learning the basic premises by which the system operates.
The Terminator movies may not be so far fetchd... machines may one day rule the lazy human.
It appears I offended but I don't understand how. I believe I was concurring with your points that people have been taught to depend on their gizmos and gadgets and no longer have the curiosity to learn what makes the gizmos and gadgets function. Is that not the point of your rant? Is that not what you have been saying in this forum forever?Bruce,
Well I take issue with it and if I'm the asshole because I want or try to force people to learn by using RTFB & some time doing some HW, versus a magic web search and no doubt, I find that YouTube videos & search engines are very helpful, however, seriously people need to know how shit works & to test it!
I often think of the solar sun storm and how many will die as result of not being able to tap a screen & for so much as a glass of water or to order a pizza delivered.
Technology is great and also comes with its lean toward too many dependencies!
Signed the ASSHOLE!
Shows once again that incomplete testing and rushing a product to market DOES have negative consequences, once customers lose confidence it takes an awful lot of time and hard work to regain that confidence.https://www.forbes.com/sites/martinrivers/2019/06/29/boeing-loses-another-737-max-customer/amp/
Boeing Loses Another 737 MAX Customer
OK, they lost twenty. Considering they have orders for five thousand of these planes, twenty ain't gonna make or break the company.https://qz.com/1660253/boeings-737-max-woes-just-cost-it-a-5-9-billion-order/amp/
