​You Can Be Trained To Test A Self-Driving Car In Less Than Two Hours

The California DMV is in charge of overseeing autonomous car testing in the state. Part of that includes ensuring the people operating the fleet of robo-cars are properly trained, but because the DMV is incapable of getting its shit together, that means some companies only require a couple hours of training before… » 2/25/15 4:46pm 2/25/15 4:46pm

Even Google News Gets An Oracle When Searching For Delphi

Yeah, we know you think she's hot. Apparently even Google News thinks women dressed in presumably traditional Greek dress are the best thing it can find when it thinks of Delphi.

That's over $1.2 billion more than they lost during the same quarter last year. So even if you "take away" the $1 billion of the loss related to employee attrition… » 2/13/07 2:22pm 2/13/07 2:22pm

Breaking! Delphi Gets $3.4 Billion As A Little Something To Keep It…

Well, it looks as though the saga of whether auto parts supplier Delphi will drag the General underwater into the inky abyss is getting a bit of a reprieve today.

Gettelfinger As Soup Nazi: "No More Concessions For Delphi!"

Well, it's close enough to warrant the picture — but can you blame the UAW chief? Ron's watched as 54,000 of his members took early retirement or forced to take up to a 50% cut in salary — while at the same time, 467 white-collared workers received a bonus for you know, not letting the company slide into the darkness… » 10/10/06 1:48pm 10/10/06 1:48pm
