Somehow I doubt it. I was also thinking how normal people hiding any kind of money/payments would end up in jail.
In a fit of petulance, and belying his insistence that the program is motivated by safety concerns rather than revenue, the mayor announced that the amounts of fines for ordinary traffic violations will now be tripled.
I would hope the local citizenry will take note of this during the next election.
Exactly, my point is the whole "Facebook needs to do something" is a problem. What does Facebook have to do with any of this? "fake news" (or again, hyperbole, out-of-context or even out-right lies) is a thing everywhere. Reddit. Print. Hell in the 1800s newspapers printed it all the time (techdirt had an article about it) This whole "Facebook has a problem and needs to fix it" issue is a simple way to lay blame on a complex issue, that starts with critical thinking. Something they are not teaching or doing in schools anymore. (ie not challenging different ideas anymore, safe spaces!!)
Also, my parents are in fact sometimes morons. They end every text with "-mom". I know mom, you sent the text from your number, you don't have to "sign it". Still keeps doing it.
SiriusXM does more than just sat-radio, providing a similar service to OnStar(GM) to other vehicle manufactures.
My biggest issue with Manning is the complete stupidity of some of what was released. The stuff revealed put real peoples lives in danger. Names of people who worked for the military in war zones undercover as translators or for intel community gathering local info. Those people became targets once this got out. So I was never 100% against any and all punishment for this. 35 years may be a little long but I always thought it was a dumb move to just give all that over to people to publish online without knowing what was in it. I could care less about making the government look bad with the cables, but don't put peoples lives at risk who are helping us.
Snowden, on the other hand, revealed what the government was doing to us, the citizens. More of an embarrassment than life threatening. A true whistle blower.
Snowden deserves the "pardon" (I know I know, he just communicated the sentence) more than Manning.
While they should have had this an Opt-In, the data gathered IMO is very useful, and not for marketing or selling to marketers. If they find their users are using these for hours a day, getting excessively hot, or battery issues, they can incorporate this into their next model to reflect real world usage to make it safer or more enjoyable.
Still should have been spelled out and Opt-In only. All data gather should be Opt-In
Not that I care one way or the other about Faulkner, but why was the hamster named Harris Faulkner in the first place? Is this just a name someone made up in the development/marketing at hasboro or did they really use the name because of her?
I get that naming toys/cartoon characters real sounding names can always bring the possibility of it matching with a real person, even if its a slimmer chance that person is "famous". But Harris Faulkner is such a unique sounding name that it does come across odd. I've never met a female named Harris before, or male for that matter, as a first name.
Not saying I think it would be wrong to use a name of a real person for a toy, just found it interesting with her name.
What? I think you misread this article. The guy shot by police was not the victim, he is the knife wielding attacker who stabbed 10 people, and was luckily stopped by an off-duty police officer who happened to be in the area. Could have been stopped by anyone with a gun, had nothing to do with it being an officer.
