The transport ministry is considering legislation to make it easier for automakers to update software in self-driving cars, along with a raft of provisions to prevent unwanted intrusions.
Under current laws, new technological developments such as automatic braking or lane changing, can only be updated on self-driving cars one unit at a time. Car owners then have to take their upgraded vehicle to inspection centers for a safety check confirmation before the technology can be used.
The Toyota TRD Pro family is growing for 2020 with the addition of the family-hauling seven-seater Sequoia SUV. It joins a freshly updated trio of the 4Runner, the Tacoma, and the Tundra in Toyota's Mount Rushmore of off-roading commanders. The Tundra is also now available in Double Cab or CrewMax orientations.
No Toyota gets to wear the TRD Pro badge without several equipment upgrades, but the Sequoia has a solid base to build on with its body-on-frame chassis, good ground clearance, and V8 heart. Just like every other TRD Pro model, the Sequoia gains aluminum internal bypass Fox shocks. Up front, they're 2.5 inches and have seven compression zones to two rebound zones. The rear uses two-inch piggyback monotube Fox shocks. Further upgrades include a reduced front spring rate and 18-inch BBS forged aluminum wheels.
Updates are usually something to look forward to since they bring about improvements, bug fixes, and new features to an app. However sometimes there is a chance that an update could actually end up breaking an app, or changing it in such a way that you don’t find particularly useful.
Unless you’re willing to delete the app and flash an older APK of the app, there’s really not much one can do about it. However with Android Q, it seems that Google could be giving users the option to reverse an app’s update. This is according to a report from XDA Developers who are exploring more features inside a recently leaked Android Q build.
Google’s Android operating system has a lot of advantages over the competition, but if there’s one thing that Google still has yet to solve it would be addressing the updates made to Android, where at the moment it really feels like Android update releases tend to be at the mercy of the companies who make the phones.
One of the main drawbacks to using Android devices, especially those not made by Google, is that the availability of Android updates is usually a mixed bag, where there are some companies who want to be as quick to the market as possible, while there are others who seem to take their own sweet time, leaving users at their mercy.
