At first I thought it was another creative Scottish insult that has nothing to do with Frito Lay, so I googled it. Apparently it's a reference to Glenn Beck covering his face in Cheeto dust to look more like Trump. So it seems the others are right, it's a reference to his insane tan.
I wonder if still being able to boot to Yellow Dog Linux on my PS3 is enough for them to give me my $55. Hay, Steam Summer Sale is suppose to start today, that $55 could get me like 10 games. Assuming, of course, this isn't just for a $55 voucher for Sony's online currency.
One, it is physically impossible to remove all guns in the US. The Second Amendment, lobbyists, already established illegal supply lines, citizens refusing to give up their weapons, cops refusing to give up their "safety", I could go on. It ain't going to happen, trying to make it happen just takes time, money, and energy away from potentially finding another solution.
Two, there are other countries out there with lots of guns and no mass shooting issue. That suggests that the issue is not with the guns, but with the people. Magically removing all guns might stem the tide, but it's not going to stop.
So quit bitching about guns, find the source of the problem, and solve it. It ain't as easy as shouting "BAN GUNS" and doing absolutely nothing productive, but it at least would be going in the right direction.
You're missing the point. Who this person is, what the picture is, or what the harassment is about doesn't matter. The point of the article is to point out a misuse of the DMCA and to show a clear example why extending the notice and takedown system to harassment is idiotic.
The only reason there's even that much detail in the article is to show that this is a real thing happening, not a hypothetical situation that people could just shrug off.
"Any malware found in a vehicle should be treated as evidence of attempted murder by default"
And this is why Tim's comment "Self-driving cars are an inevitability" is wrong. Just like how people's fears of Google Glass killed the product, people's fears of self driving cars will kill that as well. Seriously, how many people will be willing to get a self driving car if they're worried about other people assaulting them out of fear?
You are vary wrong about this. It's not just about rights, it's about giving preferential treatment based on arbitrary morality. Why should the Redskins have a harder time dealing with knock-offs when other, equally or more vulgar trademarks get government protection?
So the choice is remove all trademarks or quit limiting them based on arbitrary morality.
And thus the reason why cable TV is hemorrhaging subscribers. We're forced to pay for cable boxes if we want the higher channels, but as you say we're not starved for alternatives. As much as you might want to keep to the delusion, cable is dying. If anything, opening up the set top box market would help cable as more people might be willing to have one.
Eh. I could see it. I've seen TV shows reach the upper 5 digits in seeders from just one source. Adding two more digits across all the sources is possible. The show is popular, cable TV is annoying, and AMC's website is a steaming pile of ass. I could see 1.27 million people being pissed off enough to pirate it.
That's not a limitation of the hardware, it's a limitation of software. Remember, they sent men to the moon with similar power to a calculator watch, but they did it without Start buttons or solitaire. Think about all the fancy your OS has and think about how much faster it would run without all that stuff that just looks pretty or you outright just don't use.
Fun fact: In Firefox there is a checkbox "Play DRM Content" that's disabled by default.
I don't doubt that there will be addons like NoScript and AdBlock that let you white list websites for DRMed content, and I don't doubt that there will be addons to completely bypass the DRM as well.
I hope the W3C understand what they're getting into. The companies that are requesting DRM in HTML5 will be coming back to the W3C at least once a week to update the DRM because the previous version has been cracked.
TOR and VPNs may use encryption, but in the cases referenced here, don't use it to hide the traffic itself, only it's origin. Once the traffic gets past the last TOR node or the VPN end point, it's broadcast in the clear. They're not designed to hide what you're surfing, only where you're surfing from.
That's something I hadn't thought of. Ripping a new back door into encryption would do irreparable damage, opening new security flaws. Hackers wouldn't even need to target the official backdoor, they can just go after the cracks around it.
The Google commercial says "there are about 2 billion, 500 million heartbeats in a lifetime." Part of the Book's subtitle is "the next 2 billion heartbeats of your life". Since the author is insisting Google directly copied his subtitle, then we can assume he agrees with the numbers.
So if there are 2,500,000,000 heartbeats in a lifetime and the book is for your future 2,000,000,000 heartbeats, does that mean it's a children's book? That cover doesn't look like it would draw too many five year olds.
Apple wouldn't be building a backdoor into the encryption. It would be building a backdoor into the other security features in iOS. The vulnerability you speak of is only a way to install the backdoor. The hacking tool would be the software the FBI already has to brute force the password.
