Raccoons are the next evolution of sentient life on Earth...
I once got outsmarted by a raccoon... The furry fucker created a diversion and while I was checking out what was happening with my tent, he/she stole my bread and nearly ruined my dinner. I threw my axe at it. Missed. :-(
Seriously, none of this is a big surprise although the people running London 2012 might be particularly clueless. I mean these are the folks who wanted Keith Moon to play at the ceremony. Ya know.. that Keith Moon... from The Who... the one that's been dead for 34 years...
I'm not sure where Lionsgate fits in the majors vs indie scale but they released this little movie recently called "The Hunger Games"? So far it grossed (in theaters only) almost 60 times it's budget. Plus they also made bunch of other films... (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Lionsgate_films)
NHTSA-approved GPS devices will now come with the obligatory "Oops! Missed your turn!" voice advisory. So not to distract the driver of the vehicle, all the advisories will be put in a queue; they will sound continuously in a row once the car becomes immobile and until the queue is emptied.
There is a slight pause between "technical" and "insights" in the way he says it, as if he's searching for the proper word before choosing insights, but he later clearly says they don't have the equipment to do so -- which seems to contradict a ton of reports out there from pretty credible sources within the NSA.
But I'll bet there's equipment outside the United States. In The only questions is, would they have to apply for the warrant if they classify this as a foreign-based operation and would they be able to access that data on servers located in United States? That last one would certainly require authorization from service providers.
On the other hand, here's something else to consider. In database management, many DBA's like to have off-site mirrored backup, often outside of the country. I also remember Google thinking about setting up off-shore servers on an oil-rig or something. In this scenario, there's nothing to prevent NSA from conducting their electronic surveillance operations.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there a concept in the criminal law that "intent follows the bullet"? So just because Dharun Ravi didn't intend to cause harm to Tyler Clementi, he did commit a criminal act that ended up causing harm. So in the eyes of the law shouldn't this be considered an intentional act rather than an immature one?
Here's what I don't get. Here's the article though that's not the one I remember reading last year: http://www.techweekeurope.co.uk/news/airlines-replace-pilots-flight-bags-with-greener-ipads-3 2304
It talks about FAA having already approved the iPad for use by pilots during take-off and landings and possibly using them for aviation maps rather than having pilots haul tons of maps around.
So wouldn't that prove that iPads do not interfere with flight controls? Or am I missing something?
Here's a thought: JT of Caroline, would you perhaps like to advise Ron Paul campaign of your personal info just so that he doesn't worry about finding another ridiculous way to twist the law in order to unmask your identity?
