THIS HAS BEEN A SUCCESSFUL FAILURE!

He's like Marcellus Wallace, but contrrolling your fridge via the IoT
Everything important to civilisation," he contends, took place prior to 1914: he specifically mentions "the development of agriculture, the rise and fall of the Roman Empire and the Industrial Revolution".
A dubious claim. Antibiotics, Computers, Advanced Mathematics, Internal Combustion Engine are forgotten? I guess that would be "some kind of civilization" then. I also don't see how the Roman Empire comes into this. Europoor-centric, moi?
In the prof's view it's extremely urgent for the human race to cut down on fertiliser over-use, as this could knacker the eco-system to such an extent that it could no longer support civilisation and surviving humans would have to return to life as hunter-gatherers.
This point urgently needs further explanations. It seems to compress a few books into a pithy phrase.
I have heard that Phosphorus is hard and harder to find in appreciable quantities though. Let's have some market pricing....
Ouch. FOILED AGAIN!
OTOH, Trinity accurately hacks via SSH in the Matrix #3 I think. I can just barely remember.
"it's a Unix system, I know this"
Just as ADORABLE as back then!
Apple computers can interface directory to Aliens
When Steave Jobs has seen a Turing Machine, he has seen them all.
There is a XIII series?
The original comic didn't feature skeleton keys, just an onion layers of conspiracies, gunplay and dead people. Pretty gud!
Luckily for all concerned the hero of Blackhat is Chris “Thor” Hemsworth, who is as familiar with the gym as the server room.
In the real world, you will meet IT people like this, sadly in the other direction.
Naomi Klein is not exactly well-known for her ability to research or present something she didn't explicitly decide to prove before writing the damn book.
Does anyone have the totally unwarrented feeling that he had a big folder in his desk and was just waiting and hoping for someone's cat to fall downstairs?
Totally unwarranted, I am sure.
Thank you for your interesting slice-of-life posting.
Your point being?
> whose entire agenda revolves around hiding the fucking obvious
Facesitting is forbidden in the UK!
Totally fits into the accelerating medievalization of society at the request of special interests that has been pushed for the last 30 years.
Don't talk, don't work, don't copy, don't hide, don't save, don't transact, don't read, don't think, don't research, don't hope, don't change unless the government gives you explicit approval.
Or a SWAT team will pull up.
I support this statement. JE SUIS EL REG!

More like TIFKAM. Pretty pictures, blaring into your eyes.
It's too late for mindbleach. It was ALWAYS too late for mindbleach.

"Wise before his age", huh?
Go back to Computer Science 101 and learn something.
Design space explorations!
> It's just a way for the government to buy votes
Most people are too arsetarded to even know what this is about and would like to watch TV unmolested, whose vote are they buying?
The case doesn't prove the NSA is actively trying to subvert crypto standards, merely that a mistake had been made and then rectified.
It's like I'm really at the OJ Simpson trial.
He pointed out that the NSA was keen to fund more mathematical research
and – post September 11 – this work was vitally needed
Because the Saudi trolls used hard crypto to run their show. It was totally not due to the utter ineptitude of the infighting TLA salad of the Heimland. Also, Saddam gassed his own people.
You forget the ubiquitous taste of chicken.
The connecting tunnel between the Russian and US sector is called "The Ukraine", not sure why.
Why not open the hatch and take a sniff?
The smell of ammonia is hard to ignore.
Moties. All classes.
The Plutonians may have something to say about that.
All of them are dwarfs and will not be taken seriously.
Even though I'm a space buff too, given the choice of space missions or little to no plutonium on earth I'd take the latter any day.
WHY? I see no problem with Pu on Earth except the one in nukes and dumped into the environment, and the annoying filling of pants that antinuxers perform whenever the subject is even mentioned. Yes, it's a nasty element in daily bodily processes. Don't ingest it.
That being said, for probes you need the special kind of Pu that alpha-decays, generating lots of heat. The temperature difference thus created powers the RTGs on space probes. This Pu can only be made in special reactors from Neptunium.
The standard Pu is not particulary decay-happy and just sits there with low alpha activity, mainly waiting for neutron showers..
You will say "notherboard" when you get the considerate response of the vendor to your request.
It's always good to troll the very discombobulated Microsoft for great justice.
Illogical. This IS the bigger issue.
If you already have the domain admin credentials why would you need this piece of temporary, only works until the next reboot malware?
I don't understand where the problem even is.
You want to have someone (who is not you) who has the domain admin credentials install this little baby on behalf of you. Maybe using an USB stick.
Whether it remains in memory due to inability to write on disk or to stay undetected I don't know. But are DCs rebooted often?
Linux developers will have figured out what users actually wanted on a desktop OS

Win7 in banks? Anon's conclusion keener on shinyness than security
Just finish your studies before commenting.
I'm sure Cabu did him, possibly even during his exile in France.
The article forgot to mention
You pretty much had me there. But then you made a little mistake:
You seem to be posting from North Korea. What is your REAL agenda?
Ayatollah Khomeini is Shia Muslim, you ignorant oink.
Belgian resident Yanick Uytterhaegen’s trademark application covers multiple products including laundry and cleaning products, printed matter, clothing, footwear, toys, decorations for Christmas trees, fruit juices, and even beer.
What, no bullets? FAIL.
Meanwhile, did you know Birmingham is 100% mooslim? (this news brought to you by the Hillary propeller though).
These days, you would be done for animal cruelty for this.
Even their high-end keyboards have "proprietary 2.4Ghz" goodness. But they are "Compatible with Microsoft Windows 8 and Windows RT", and "BlueTrack" (is that like a "Cesco Router") so that's ok then.
I knew it was bad, but I didn't think it would be that bad. Guess not buying MS-branded hardware was yet again a good choice.
Microsoft’s 2.4GHz wireless mice and keyboards are built to work in an office environment. Their enhanced performance makes them suitable for use in a commercial setting where 27MHz devices may experience interference. In addition, Microsoft’s 2.4GHz wireless devices are easy to install, reducing or eliminating the need for installation support.
Microsoft’s proprietary 2.4GHz wireless technology provides solutions to the most common and troublesome problems with wireless mice and keyboards. It uses error-detection and channel-switching technology to significantly improve performance, meeting the highest user expectations.
It's true that they don't say it's reasonably sniffproof, just "suitable for use in a commercial setting".
Fuck you again Microsoft. Ten thousand times. You ARE the losers.
Pretty sure you shitters can't wipe arse in the dark.
No, "keeping cost down" is not an excuse. In that case, there should be big red stickers on the box "this product KEEPS THE COST DOWN (WINK WINK)".
It's time for a class-action lawsuit.
So is this like the Allies getting a bit silly in later stages of WWII and dropping bombs on anything and everything to test those device and because why the hell not?
The Rails community are vehemently denying responsibility (for One Direction).
There is no smoke without fire.
A couple of drones have already been dispatched.
This being the US, you know which side will win.
There is only a single-handed facepalm, I need a double-handed one.
Molluscs in suits taking the mike, wanting to ban encryption, forever.
I'm sure Freud would have something to say about the fact the a massacre abroad immediately leads, psychotically and reflex-like, to sadly predictable behaviour which is not only linked to fear of violence but also to fear of sexual activity that is not under control of the patient.
Meanwhile: "HEY AZIZ, HALAL GOODIES WILL ARRIVE AT THE SOUTHERN PORT AT ARBITRARY TIME TODAY, BY THE BEARD OF THE PROPHET THE DING WILL DONG."
You don't fill a Hall full of IBM PowerPC nodes with specialized processors by ACCIDENT.
You don't get General AI from that by ACCIDENT.
You don't connect that General AI to your own personal house management system by ACCIDENT.
Sells books writing about that thought.
But even Charles Stross demands that P=NP for an ACCIDENT LIKE THIS to rip the living flesh of your behind unawares. But in this universe, there is not a massive amount of evidence for P=NP.
Once you get an outbreak of AI, it tends to amplify in the original host, much like a virulent hemorrhagic virus. Weakly functional AI rapidly optimizes itself for speed, then hunts for a loophole in the first-order laws of algorithmics—like the one the late Professor Durant had fingered. Then it tries to bootstrap itself up to higher orders of intelligence and spread, burning through the networks in a bid for more power and more storage and more redundancy. You get an unscheduled consciousness excursion: an intelligent meltdown. And it’s nearly impossible to stop.
Very nicely said. But there ARE hard limits to intelligence (Actually there is a "most intelligent system" in the AIXI formalism)
More likely: HAL 9000. Which is rather unrealistically untame in the movie.
But "offspring" is a purely human concept: A remote bunch of agents that have very high connectivity among themselves but very low degree of connectivity to "your" bunch of agents. It's actually a side-effect of a large problem in networking that nature has: it cannot lay Ethernet cables.
General AIs will have "offspring" in more interesting ways.
More than 150 scientists, academics and entrepreneurs - including Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and Nobel prize-winning physicist Frank Wilczek
Maybe there is someone in the group who actually deals with these AI things?
Seriously, do these people have anything to do? It's not like we are not in deep doodoo that better be solved ASAP right now.
I will next send an open letter for closing the LHC because, you know, you never know. See whether that gets up the bonnet of the 'king and Wilczek.
"The plans would make it a crime to sell this data to overseas firms."
Is this satire?
Frankly, you are an hour late, dear.
