Newsflash: Too late.
You can relax now.
They've only done their job as mandated by US politicians, and done it well.
Even in a purely US-centric view, compiling dossiers like Hacker Heydrich on US people in full violation of anything their mandate and the constitution says about these kind of activities as well as alienating "overseas friends" (more like useful idiots kept in line by greenback splurges, amirite) by basically behaving like Greys coming back night after night for a good probing is NOT "doing your job well", except in Restaurant-Serving-Stray-Cats-For-Expediency kind of way.
Don't name drop and don't be boring!
A medium-mass black hole!
Very convenient for sucking hyperdrives out of passing spaceships.
It should be secure enough.
Oc ourse not. What is being said is that females may smoothen the talk a bit, allowing a consensus to be reached.
Of course, if the female is a true-blooded Honored Matre, this may backfire.
The horrible truth is: THERE WAS NO PLAN
Do I sound like a Guardian journalist yet?
Very shitty. Try again. Work on reconciling the "freetard" concept with the creation of a payment system.
This is the biggest load of obvious bollocks I've seen since The Times' "Qatar Dream League"
Did you read the fine uh... work ... about Kevin Mitnick, called "Takedown?". Written by NYT's John Markoff and someone called Tsutomu Shimomura? You must!
"how a female asshole can become transferred onto my brother's rear end"
Clearly, we need to know more. Can anyone look into this?
It's all Obama's fault!
This is correct.
Or just the safe being emptier than it should be in the first place: loaning out the money one should keep in the vault so that dosh can be made for oneself --- while praying that not all the depositors will demand their money back at the same time.
The reason for why "bank runs" happen and, today, basically large orders are suddenly placed to printshops by politicians getting the cold sweats.
"transaction malleability" sounds suspiciously like exactly that. I have no idea whether bitcoin technically allows this.
Anything to it?
The claim that Mt. Gox was operating with fractional reserves came as shocking to some. After all, the exchange functioned by providing a shared wallet for depositors. Each time a deposit was made in bitcoin, the proceeds were moved to the shared wallet. This wallet was safely stored offline (“cold storage”) so that hackers could not gain access to them. In addition, a very high percentage of bitcoin was supposedly stored in this way – up to 98% by some claims – with only a small amount held online to facilitate withdrawals and other transactions.
In theory, since almost all of the bitcoin were held safely offline by Mt. Gox, the “bitcoin bank” should have been behaving like any standard full-reserve bank. The evidence over the past months proved this to be anything but the reality of the situation.
Mt. Gox is a little different. Despite holding the vast majority of its bitcoin securely in cold storage, its claim is that somehow these were stolen by someone. In standard fractional-reserve banking theory, the reason a less than 100% reserve is held is because the bank has knowingly made use of the deposited goods, not because hackers have prevailed in cracking an impervious safe. The dust will settle on what happened to the bitcoins deposited with Mt. Gox. For now I will let Occam´s razor prevail in providing me with an answer to the whereabouts of the missing coins.
In this case, Burning Gox!
Netanyahu then quipped: "You can't ask that of government."
Is this a "you can but nothing will happen" or a "you better not ask that, buddy, or else... ".
"A movie with Samuel Jackson"
In the current climate, holding a single coherent thought is worthy of Intellectual Property protection.
I don't know why that is.
If you cheer this ruling, you need to take a good look in the mirror.
I didn't see anything untoward.
Hold on.. did you take a good look in the mirror? Are you, maybe a patent troll sockpuppet??
This will tell what boxes the witlessly bored lady just out of the 4-year social studies parcours and now mysteriously in charge of interviewing your for the job wants to
seehear ticked off.
Now, one just has to pass the phrenology and graphology tests!
This won't work for "the cloud" anyhow, since there you typically don't have the multi-megabit bandwidths you'd need for that.
What if I, as a buyer, was actually OKAY WITH THE PRICE I PAID!
Am I now a government-despising scum that is an insult to western civilization or its remains?
Did you inform the IRS to enjoy suitable taxation?
But would you accept freedom fries and a liberty sandwich?
There are literally billions in unclaimed property in the US
QUICK! PASS A LAW! THIS NEEDS TO BE SEIZED FORTHWITH!
How can you get taxed on bitcoin?
It's not a currency.
Secure boot makes it potentially more secure than any other OS on the market.
Saddam has potentially a specially crafted industrial infrastructure driving around in the desert at night, producing chemical weapons!
We finally discovered someone who uses the Windows Key!
This is why we can't have nice things.
Anything involving "big data" maybe? Moderatly large databases involving GIS. Stuff like that.
Good! Otherwise it would be £1,799 (but you would get the "proudly taxed in Yurop" sticker FOR FREE!)

Yep, pigs fly low. The entire hardware costs less than the Windows + Office license(1)

Because - is there anything in Twitter that can be considered patentable?
"Companies in the Internet, technology and media industries own large numbers of patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets"
Hey Twitter! You cannot "own" a trade secret. You can "hold" it, maybe.
On second thoughts, you cannot own any other "Intellectual Property" claims either. It's "Intellectual" (until suddenly it isn't - your thoughts are mine, all mine etc.).
"We presently are involved in a number of intellectual property lawsuits, and as we face increasing competition and gain an increasingly high profile, we expect the number of patent and other intellectual property claims against us to grow," Twitter said.
Translation: we are not really competing at all, we are just running this protection racket on the side.
No. Because "going to space" only is meaningful in Kerbal Universe.
The US dollar would deflate like a hormone chicken.
I wish Philip K. Dick would still write.
Also, another realistic portrayal of the career-driven woman: she’s completely alone. Having given up things like being a good wife and choosing instead to build whatever the hell it was she built in the movie, she ends up in her 40s, facing death in outer space, crying at the idea that nobody is left on Earth who will miss her or say a prayer for her.
That part is spot on.
This is why alcohol exists.
As the EU leadership doesn't think that childraising is an activity of any particular merit whatsoever (should the population drop, one can just import little brown people from abroad), moving large chunks of the female population into Socialistically Powerful Worker Positions will embiggen the Yurop's GDP immensely and make it The Powerhouse of Intellectual Endeavours Worldwide!! This will pay down the monstrously grown incubating xenomorphs of state and private debt, assure the inflated salaries of the 30% working in nonproductive state jobs via appropriate tax revenues, and, if allied with cunning inflationary manoeuvers, enable the payout of the much-promised pensions at nominal values.
Do you mean to say that female employee will be given the boot presto?
Next: Campaigns bemoaning that fact that 100% of jobs are occupied by humans.
Isn't that Chell from Portal???
That's supposed to be an economic absurdity - one company, one hardware customer, is a bigger market than the entire customer base of the world's biggest hardware supplier, or their second and third-largest rival?
It's called "specializing for a special task". It is possible if commodity stuff can be thrown together to build a specialized tool as materials and know-how become commponplace. It's the same reason why there are not only 5 companies building houses in the world.
It goes without saying that we've long since passed the event horizon for external supervision by governments and the rule of law to prevent abusive monopolies, regulatory capture, and tax evasion.
I don't know what world you are living in, but we are frankly into Nazi territory and moving deeper regarding:
1) Arbitrary antitrust shit whenever some (generally leftish) cunt in government feels like it "Uh... I think people are collunding ... how horrible. Let's reduce the price forcefully for the peons!!" Sure a formula for Great Success. As opposed to letting the monopoly die on its arse by enabling some competition.
2) Regulatory capture being ENABLED by government at full throttle. Checked whether you company is "green enough" lately? Yep, you are being forced to dump the lightbulbs for no good reason.
3) "Tax evasion" being chased down like Himmler's mystical projects depended on it. Which is why you hear about it so much. These taxfeeders are voting themselves pay increases and are HUNGRY.
I "like" this!
to justify the 150 a year it costs in taxes
You mean even capital infrastructure is being taxed these days (in addition to the universal tax one has to pay to entropy?)
"Oh Zimbabwe, soon we there..."
"in the public interest" ==> pages of boring text and references to legalese that you better read through to know how you are currently getting shafted
"interesting to the public" ==> glossy photographs of naked flesh
How does your post make sense?
“The extensive and deliberate use of dedicated US hosting companies by foreign countries’ wiretapping activities raises a number of pressing legal and policy concerns,” Citizen Labs says. “These include whether RCS client countries violate US law and longstanding international legal principles on sovereignty and nonintervention through use of this spyware."
Oh noes. Someone is violating US laws, not to mention suddenly re-relevant "international principles" which can only be violated by Team USA.
SOMEONE CALL THE WAAHHABULANCE!!
Citizen Lab is an interdisciplinary laboratory based at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto, Canada that focuses on researching the relationship between technology, human rights, and global security.
They clearly also doing practical research in reaching previously unheard levels of faggotry.
