Apple is working on a self-driving car to rival Google

Apple logoApple's Project Titan is not only real, but the self-driving car is further developed than previously thought. Documents obtained by The Guardian show that the company is currently looking for secure locations in the San Francisco bay area that could be used to test the vehicle.

The newspaper made a public records act request to unearth correspondence that revealed that the Special Project group from Apple met with representatives from the GoMentum Station. This former naval base is in the process of being transformed into test track for self-driving vehicles.

Apple is working on a self-driving car to rival Google

The Apple Car, iCar, or whatever the vehicle ends up being called, appears to be further along the development track than previously believed. The company seems keen to get some alone time at the GoMentum Station, with Apple engineer Frank Fearon writing: "We would like to get an understanding of timing and availability for the space, and how we would need to coordinate around other parties who would be using it."

It has long been rumored that Apple has been beavering away on a self-driving car, but confirmation that the company is actively looking for a testing ground shows that development is well underway -- Apple could be on the verge of testing its first viable prototypes. Rumors of Apple's work have been further fuelled by Tim Cook's meeting with Fiat-Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne, and Apple's hiring of engineers from automotive companies.

Despite the appearance of correspondence between Apple and the GoMentum Station, the owners of the location remain tight- lipped:

We had to sign a non-disclosure agreement with Apple. We can't tell you anything other than they've come in and they're interested.

Hi, I sent a question<a href="http://imdzmrraah.com"> elreiar</a> about the score not showing up on the routed page but when looking through older questions here I saw you suggest, to fix the results database storing issue (which I was also having), to deactivate then reactivate the plugin. I tried this, to fix up the results issue, and it fixed up the scoring issue as well! So, don't worry about my previous question, it's all good now thanks guys for an awesome plugin!

With my chest and shoulders rexaled, my wrists are about 2 inches from the floor. I can press the right wrist the rest of the way to the floor, but the left is still about an inch up. Pressing the wrists down causes me to pull the shoulder blades down and creates a bit of muscle strain in the front of the left deltoid and outside edge of the pectoral muscle (at the armpit) on that side. No arch in back and ribs stay on the floor.Is this good, bad, somewhere in the middle? Any recommendations for getting the left side the rest of the way down without strain?-Mike http://iathetiiifq.com [url=http://midxnsxfnij.com]midxnsxfnij[/url] mfixyy
