Re: Great work of AT&T
Joe -- In any case, it was a funny story. I could imagine a million things happening due to that show.

Re: Great work of AT&T
Joe -- Well, I don't really expect anyone to do anything for me. But you have to admit that city lighting is not something that individuals have to be responsible for, right? I don't feel responsible for the lighting in the streets. As for the black clothes, perhaps you grew up learning that it's not a good idea to wear black clothes at night but that doesn't mean you can't change your ideas, your habits, or what you have mainly learned from others, in this case I imagine from your parents. There are people who always wear black. At all times and all the time. Black is actually a colour that prefer wearing at night. Anyway, I don't think this has to be an issue for anyone. :D

Re: Great work of AT&T
@Susan: No idea on the rest of their background or what became of their futures after the show, but I'm sure some of that info is out there somewhere.

As for giving away their secrets, I'm not so sure that it was particularly a trade secret at that point given that they were not only reformed but had already been caught!

Re: Great work of AT&T
@Susan: I don't know, I grew up learning that it's a bad idea to wear dark clothes at night, period.

Smart city tech can be great. But at some point, you have to take responsibility for yourself instead of expecting government to do every little thing for you.

@afwriter: Siri can be catty! hah!

What's fun is to ask her "What does the fox say?" Or, for that matter, to tell her that you see a little silhouetto of a man.

Re: Great work of AT&T
@srufolo: At this point I'm not even sure what there is to do about those lights. They make those "nighttime sunglasses" but I've read that those may be bad for your eyes.

I guess you could wear regular sunglasses...but that's problematic for obvious reasons.

Re: Great work of AT&T
@Joe Stanganelli  I remember To Catch a Thief. I really liked that show. I recently experienced the blinding bright flashing LEDs, and I have a hard time driving at night as it is because oncoming headlights practically blind me, but this guy's flashing LED was not making him any safer, that's for sure.

I'm not exactly sure why it happened in that instance. I have tried to replicate it, but I have not been able to yet.
