This is what (Tasker)[tasker.dinglisch.net] is for. You need root to make it control anything like phone unlock but, it'd be quite useful. Although, in your case, I'd just use a multi-finger unlock which, if entered incorrectly, rebooted the phone. Android devices (and iOS devices too I think) require the actual password on reboot to unlock the encryption. Since that's something you know, they can't easily make you give that up.
The emergency wipe the phone needs to be another specific multi-finger setup.
Ok, the water in Flint isn't still mostly poison. It tests below the federal limits for lead and copper in most places now but the EPA is leaving the Do Not Drink advisory in place until all tests come back below the limit (I grew up in Flint, my mother still lives in Flint, and I'm in the city about 3-4 days out of the week so I need to know if I can drink the water so I keep up on this stuff).
Git is the name of the open-source version control system that Github uses to manage code. Git itself was originally created by the same guy who made the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds. So, Github is an online hub for git code repositories.
That depends on which way the conservative-leaning judges on the Supreme Court decide to fall on some of these executive orders as well as the judge he just nominated for the currently empty seat. If he gets too many judges on his side, there won't be anyone in his way anymore.
Charter is already my only broadband internet provider. My choices for internet service are Charter, Frontier (who can't do more than 6 Mbps where I am, the salesperson on the phone actually admitted that their DSLAM was too far from my place and they'd be unable to provide the full 12 Mbps), and satellite service with its currently horrible latencies.
That being said, I haven't had any big issues with Charter but, I still think we need more competition in the ISP space, not less.
Even Windows Hello requires cameras that also see in IR so that fake faces (non-living ones) don't work and that's in consumer level equipment now. Anything that really needs to be secured should be using even better equipment than that.
I had a shop accident a few years ago and one of my fingerprints has been permanently changed so, it does happen. Fortunately, I had more than one finger recorded for my laptop's fingerprint reader (and I still knew my password even if I lost all 10).
This is for a very good reason. Microsoft has had issues with malware altering the HOSTS file in older versions of Windows and redirecting people from MS sites to other sites in the past. So, they hard coded their websites to always go where they're supposed to go. If you don't trust Microsoft though, don't use Windows.
That's the problem when government officials use their positions to blackmail you, it's very effective. These executives have had to fight expensive legal battles every time an Attorney General decides to take them to court for this issue.
Now, they're being subpoenaed by the Senate (coincidentally, one of the AG's who filed suit against them last year is now a US Senator). This adds further cost to them and their business. Maybe after they testify they'll open this section back up since their side of the issue will be on the Senatorial record and with this Supreme Court decision behind them, they certainly have the law on their side already.
When do those 95-year copyrights on 1923 works expire, January 1st, 2018 or January 1st, 2019? Either way, barring another senseless extension, we'll start having some new public domain works again within the next two years.
I really want to see the actual ordinance now. How many cameras are required? What kind of coverage must one have? What about retention?
Can I use an old Android phone pointed at the street far from my door and constantly overwrite video on a 1 GB microSD card for storage and have that qualify? I almost want a commercial building in this city just to test the bounds of the law.
Just to comment on your first point, both Facebook and Twitter allow people to create accounts as long as they're at least 13 years old. This is mainly due to an American law (the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act) which requires websites to get parental consent to collect personal information from anyone younger than that. Also, you can browse Twitter and Facebook in a limited fashion without creating an account at all.
