I am mainly a Firefox user and try to ignore IE updates as much as possible. But MS pushed IE11 as an "important update", so I went ahead and updated it. They could have made it an optional update or waited 6 months or a year.
Maybe those cubesats can spy on the NRO satellite?

"I just repaired a Toshiba laptop that had facial recognition unlock on it."
How did you do it? Hold a photo of the owner up to the camera?
Re: return trips
Re. Sputnick capsules
Will they send a dog up first?
Re: Whats the point?
What's to stop the NSA from going to its SECRET court and get a SECRET order to not encrypt private links and force MS to keep it all SECRET?
Zuckerberg, who spies on all his users, discovers he is being spied on. Bummer!
So they've got the toilets working properly now?
They'll have to pry my Windows 7 out of my cold dead hands.
Bill Gates crying.....
Sic 'em boy....
If Obamacare is such an attractive honeypot, why don't they sic the NSA dogs on it and catch a few of those lowlifes? From what we've been hearing you'd think it would be easy for them.
I recently bought a gadget that came with a 50 page manual. The manual was 1 page long, and came in 50 languages. I can see where the manufacturer may have been coming from, but the box and the install program were both in English.
Re: American Big Media running school brainwashing campaign
Taking this a step further, taxpayers are struggling to pay the wages, benefits and pensions of teachers. Corporations would be delighted to step in and provide instruction at no cost to taxpayers. We're already well down that road by now anyway.
...employ memory tricks such as mnemonics...
Whenever I do that I forget what trick I used and embarrass myself. So I keep all my passwords in PasswordSafe.
If you squeeze it hard enough will it call 911 (emergency)?
Re: Who cares about the politics?
Yes but "Fuck You Google" says it all.
What are they gonna do when they get there?
Most people drive cars for years without wrecking the underside one way or another. What are Tesla drivers up to?
Terrorists find hacking power plant too difficult, settle for turning the lights off....
They could save a lot of money (needed for the aircraft carriers), don't buy the ipads, just issue pen and notebook.
It may be to get their datacenters out of US jurisdiction and away from the snoops.
The NSA must know whose computer is infected and sending spam. They could actually do something useful and beneficial for once. Formatting the hard drive on infected machines comes to mind. If anyone complains, send them to Belarus.
Re: CFO says "There won't be one atom of carbon emitted ...."
Re. Ipad, all the carbon produced in manufacturing is released in China.
They need to design nano-bots to help them put it together.
Just because the earth is only a few thousand years old doesn't mean the asteroid couldn't be billions of years old.
I suggest they use the symbol TWIT
It doesn't matter what the public thinks about fracking. What matters is whether it is harmful to the environment or not. A clear answer to that question and the decision is made.
Wall outlets are standardized over large regions of the world, and every device comes with a charger. Looks like they have a long way to go.....
Re: Reversing Moore's Law
And then there's this: Voice recognition lift
"....so its 1500kgs of goodies could be brought aboard."
In orbit the goodies don't weigh anything.
Re: The one key idea...
I used to pop the caps off those keys to avoid hitting them by mistake.
While you're at it please get rid of leap years too? They're a pain in the butt if there ever was one.
I just got USB 3.0 on my computer and now its obsolete.
Maybe they should go after the NRA while they're at it?
It's amazing what a lot of smart people can do, with a nearly unlimited budget. Now if they were to put their efforts to some of these problems instead:
- cheap clean energy
- global peace
I'm glad I'm not the sysadmin that typed in the wrong unix command that brought the whole thing down!
The solution is simple...
Using readily available technology commonly in use today. Every computer/device must be equipped with a webcam that cannot be turned off. Monitor and record all traffic in and out of each computer device, including photo of the user. It is mostly already being done today anyway. Using facebook and google technology identify each illegal item downloaded/uploaded and the individual responsible. Lock them up. Pay bonuses.
So its all about money then. As long as it didn't hurt their bottom line they didn't care. But now....
It would cost them about 50 cents to put in a proper timer chip and a coin-cell battery backup that lasts 5 years. Then the clock would keep running regardless and come up with the correct time when power is restored.
Actually wouldn't brain to brain interface via mouth (speech) and ear be simpler and more effective?
Re: See, you keep telling them but they don't listen
"Ahh, but Google uses pigeons."
I understand the pigeons went on strike, until Google offered them a better deal.
You forget Google's business is pushing advertising. If it couldn't scan user's email to facilitate its business, there would be no gmail. And no google search, and all of the other "free" services. You just have to decide if you want to pay the price for the service.
BOZOS to DARPA
Just pull the plug on the internet - instant security.
The USA doesn't have enough people in prison?
What if the NSA runs out of storage capacity and decides to use the cloud. But much of their data comes from the cloud, and they will feed back until all of the storage in the universe is exhausted.
I can see why they want to know if the missiles lock on to the cell towers and wipe them out by mistake.
"The new phone is apparently in the prototype stage..."
God help the workers when it gets into production.
