you want our government to force its LAWS into another nation, and HACK a friendly nations PRIVATE servers, for a case of Corporate fraud?? YES, the word hack is correct, as it would involve the LAWS the USA has created. WE HAVE NO rights against another nations LAWS. We have no rights invading another nations computers. We have NO rights invading PRIVATE servers of a company in ANOTHER NATION..
IF we had ANY OF THESE RIGHTS, why arent we investigating the BANK SERVERS IN THIS NATION, and following what the corps are DOING IN THIS NATION??
"Just off the top of my head... how about the automotive industry?
Time and time again, setting higher standards for safety, for fuel efficiency, and for low emissions has spurred innovation in developing ways to safer, more efficient, less polluting cars less expensive and more available to the mass market."
AND?? During the 1970's fuel crisis AFTER the Gov demanded better Fuel economy..we went upto 30mpg, and then the States and Gov said HOLD IT...we aint getting any tax money.. twice the MPG, 1/2 the taxes. Car safety?? Who drives SAFER?? the person with no insurance/no license or the person that has the BEST insurance on the road, thats Speeding at 100mph down the road?? going from cars we had to FIX/modify/Adjust to something you cant touch without it FAILING.. from people who HAD to know how a car WORKED to computers on wheels..
Ok.. how to say this... I dont care what you say there are 2 REAL problems..
#1. Who is responsible for this CAR.. Im not driving it. AND IF I CANT FIX IT, Im not going to INSURE IT..
#2. I dont care HOW careful you are, accidents happen. There are to many conditions, from NATURE to roads.. Even IF' you have the ability to take control of the car, while you are sitting back relaxing and something happens...you are not Fast enough to change the outcome.. I can see the computer taking the Cautious speed and protections to SLOW down and control the car on an ice covered road, and the passenger getting upset and taking control.. EXPERIENCE is the greatest thing is car driving.. YOU WILL not hve the experience needed to control your car or Judge your OWN capabilities..
I was going to say that.. Every analysis I look at has MORE hacking being sent by our own Gov. then we are getting.. You would THINK they would Learn something, LIKE.. setting up BS sites, and not installing ANYTHING REAL on gov. sites..
Criminals have (_______)(fill in the blank) so we can search it for any reason.. Terrorists have (_______)(fill in the blank) so we can search it for any reason.. YOUR MOM has (_____) so we can (_____) is if we want to.. YOU (_____) so we KNOW you are a (_______)
"intelligence professional in effectuating change by speaking truth to power, by exemplifying professional integrity, or by reporting wrongdoing through appropriate channels"
These 2 things MEAN NOTHING..
Intelligence professional Professional Integrity Appropriate Channels.. A Int pro, does NOT tell anyone anything..There are NO channels.. as the only person that KNOWS what you are doing is your Boss, and those OUTSIDE the circle, are ignorant of anything ..
See what you are saying Is important, but the internet ISNT.. And IMHO, anyone setting there system withn access to the net, better KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING..
Its the thought that with dial up, it took time to infect a machine, with high speed...it takes les then 1 second..
Basically Email only would be great.. Isolated internet computer at MOST..
But for 90% of what an office has/does/will do...Any computer will work..and a C64 would be great as most people wouldnt even know how to open the data..
As to linux, try open office.. Look at Thunderbird..
What I WISH is that MS was JUST an OS...and I could decide/design my OWN desktop..but every time you get things set and understand whats going to happen in windows..they CHANGE to another version..and even the OLD version cost as much..the main change was 64bit..
we could debate this for WAY to long, and this isnt the place for it..
To many chiefs and NO INDIANS.. To many groups wanting to do something and its going to get SO BAD... How many groups, agencies, Czars, Idiots have ANYTHING to do with this, or the knowledge to THINK they can do anything with this..
When the net went up it was interesting and you COULD find things..Now its like looking in the library to find porn.. There is so much BS out there, that its Scary and weird..
Part of the problem is MS trying to change things to a Simpler environment..So that releasing something for 1 works on the others.. WHAT they dont see.. is that an OS is 1 part and an ENVIRONMENT/desktop interface is another. Just because they run with the same ideas and are Compatible between each device...does not mean they have the same LOOK. DX12 is already on Xbox..and with a few adjustments, Most things for xbox will work on the PC.. Most companies are learning that EVEN a C64 can do most things in business.. And winxp EVEN if you hacked it, is a good OS/environment..If it works DONT change it..
And if it comes down to it, Jumping to Linux for business is GREAT..
"There is a serious and long-term unintended consequence that MS, HP, et al are not considering here: they are teaching users that *installing security updates is bad.*"
LEts see.. I have suggested many times that Every company has wanted to control THEIR products, inside and out.. A friend recently asked about win10.. I mentioned he look at Windows Phones/tablets/xbox.. He thought for a second, and siad "OMG...you are right"
BE prepared to be required to BUY everything for win10 from MS store..
"Why is this process still so vague even after decades";
Is this an understatement?? its Just passed the 100 year mark in the USA..and in the world, abit longer..
Always wondered how many dots/dashes there were in a 3/4 inch area.. AND HOW you can match less then the WHOLE thing.. Then to decide the orientation.. its like looking at a CLOCK with no numbers..TURN IT ANY WAY YOU WANT..just line up the Hands for the time.. I love that TV. can take a print from ANY surface..
But its the easiest way to TELL if someone has been in a room..
Is that AFTER the net started doing Individual independent Audio tracks.. The Music industry WATCHED and went after those people to get them to JOIN.. And a FEW DID, and UP WENT THE NOTICES.. Even if those playing the music HAD permission from the groups/individuals or NOT.. EVEN if it was the Music creators OWN SITE..
1. HOW MANY channels can you get with an Antenna and booster?? which will run you about $100 one time price?? I live in a Farming area, and I get 22 channels..5 of them religious. 6 independent channels that show, Selections of Many channels(NOT NBC, CBS, FOX, ...,), then we get the Area channels, like NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS 4 channels.. AND I get a good selection of Older programs I dont MIND WATCHING... 2. LOCAL NEWS and events...YOU CANT get on national TV distribution. For some reason the mentality of MOST people is that IF you see it on TV, its happening NEAR YOU..Dont believe it) 3. IF' I could pay $1 per channel THAT I COULD SELECT on Cable/sat...I WOULD. And it MIGHT cost me about $20 per month. 4. the PRICES cable/sat PAY to send a signal, seems to be MOSTLY in the Lower PENNIES per channel(they might inflate that just to prove me WRONG) but the FEW channels that cost $0.75 to OVER $1..ARE FEW.. but when you ATT 200+ channels at $0.10 each it ADDS UP.. Throwing in TONS of Crap channels just gives them a REASON to charge you, and say, ITS CHEAP.. LOTS OF CHEAP channels, just very little content you WANT..
Problems with Cutting the cord.. YOU NEED ABIT of basic knowledge, but you will LEARN something about radio signals.. 1. HIGHER is better.. 2. Low freq signals are NEAT, and expand and spread nicely. 3. A booster helps with color and getting the 1 signal you WANT.. 4. a Clear signal isnt ALWAYS easy to get..and the OLD analog was better.. 5. There are FEW professionals in this anymore...IF you want one, FIND a RADIO operator, Short wave/HAM/CB..they will give you FREE knowledge, and MIGHT install it for you.. 6. DONT CLIMB THINGS TO INSTALL ANTENNA'S UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING...YOU CAN DIE(in many way) IF YOU DO IT WRONG...like hitting a power line with a METAL POLE..Falling OFF the ROOF/WALL/LADDER..
