Nice use of "statistics". In fact, if one actually looks at the numbers, there were 731 actual arrests of people possessing guns in 2011. There is no data that indicates how many of these were actually legal weapons or how many people were actually tried or convicted. The other weapons cited range from knives to stun guns. Hardly worth the greater than 615,000 people who had their rights violated.
What is awesome here is that there as a real potential that if I email somebody and tell them I am going to punch them, the penalty could be greater than if I actually did walk up and punch them. I am sorry I moved to Maryland with all the craziness. But we are just the first. Soon all states will be this way.
NOBODY, regardless of citizenship, should be subjected to unreasonable search and seizure. The constution does not just apply to US citizens. For over two hundred years the USA has been telling the world that the are "inalienable human rights." Which means that up to about 12 years ago they applied to all people everywhere.
It's not illegal if they let people know what they are doing. They should give people the option to opt out, but we always have the option of buying services somewhere else. And some people may even like the service. It does speed things up. We should stop looking to the gub'ment to protect us from everything and vote with our wallets.
Not Amazon -- According to Jon Jenkins, director of Silk development, “secure web page requests (SSL) are routed directly from the Kindle Fire to the origin server and do not pass through Amazon’s EC2 servers.”
I do have something to hide. I don't *think* I am doing anything illegal, but there are a lot of laws and they are always being re-interpreted. On top of that, I am not a lawyer. So I suspect if someone were to search my house and really wanted to find something, they probably could. I am not sure all my pillows have the tags on them. There may be a few MP3's that I have lost the CD that goes with them. I have decrypted and ripped DVD's that I own. Some cop who needs a bust could plant something. While they are rummaging through my house, somebody could knock over my family heirlooms.
I am sick of hearing that these are different times. Roadside inspection of all cars is definitely not "perfectly reasonable". Radar traps really aren't either. The word "trap" should give it away.
How are these roadside inspections going to stop the nutjobs, crack dens, or the flophouse? The only way they could come close is to have 24x7 checkpoints on every public street. Maybe I don't want someone to look in my trunk -- maybe my care bear collection is in there, and I don't want anyone to see it. Perhaps I keep my sex toys there. There are plenty of legal things that I might have that I do not want a record kept of. Or, maybe I am in a hurry and I don't want to be delayed.
I am perfectly aware of what happened on 9/11. I was at work in the Pentagon when it happened. But, Mr. Anonymous Coward, I am not willing to trade the things that made this country great just so you can have the illusion that you are a little safer.
You are free to tell your boss what you think of him. and he is free to find a way to fire you. The first amendment does not protect you from other people, even if you are telling the truth. That's why I want to laugh at people who put "my company sucks" on their facebook page and then get all mad when they get in trouble at work. It does not matter what your privacy settings are. You may as well have bought space in the newspaper. At least there, fewer people would see it.
Why not large cities? Wouldn't that work even better? If it is the number of devices, Couldn't a device go into standby if it senses too many other ones in it's range? Wouldn't you be able to use some sort of spanning tree to avoid circuitous routing? One of these device in every apartment and business in NYC, each with a battery to last between six and 24 hours, and you would have an awesome network.
I'll look at their proposal. As long they get rid of all the taxes on my connection and it does not compromise security, I'm in. I don't think people are lining up to download porn when the neighbor's house is on fire, but if they do I will be able to show the log that says my connection was preempted.
There is likely way more to this story than unglue.it is saying. Amazon made money on every one of these transactions. They like making money. They would not risk a potential scandal just to kill unglue.ir, which really doesn't pose much of a threat to them at all. It's most likely some legal or accounting issue.
I wanted to like the ceremony. I tried to watch it. Finally, I had to turn it off. It was really awful. It's pretty obvious that directing a film and directive live presentations require different skill sets.
That's why they delay the audio and embed it in the video before it is sent. Then the receiver (decoder) delays the audio yet again while the video is being decoded. This problem was solved decades ago.
IF she filmed the crime, as a witness she would be required to provide a copy of the video to the police. Not the device that took the video. The police don't want to be filmed, but they know it is legal. Therefore they are going to harass people so much that people won't do it any more, because it is so much trouble.
