Re: The polluter pays...
I think the analogy would be that once the stream has been cleaned up, you would be responsible for updating the index (which is most people's primary decision making tool for choosing a picnic spot) so that the stream is no longer filed under "smells pooey"
Yes, but the stream isn't getting cleaned up. That's the problem. Google keeps checking, and keeps finding the same thing. So the solution being thrown about is: rather then actually cleaning the pollution (that's too hard, it seems the entire community is dumping raw sewage in the stream), blame the people who make an index of polluted places.
Re: "Dead people are rising but Authorities say there is no cause for alarm."
Umm... by definition Google aren't a 3rd party. While they will use the information you give them for one thing, for something else too, that doesn't make them a 3rd party.
Re: Whenever you hear Oracle whine about Android
They can, but they would have to change how they deliver the binaries, such that the source is always delivered with them.
Even then Oracle could just buy a copy of the binaries.
I hearby revoke your techie creds
The power alone is a significant difference on a laptop.
Re: Captains Log
He is an expert on being a celebrity though, and considering this is an app for celebrities he has more then enough authority to weigh in on if it is really useful for them.
I on the other hand, not being a celebrity, am truly not qualified to review it.
Re: It's more than that
OTOH, if your objective is less homicidal and you just want to steal everything in the car this hack works nicely.
Re: It's more than that
That's a bloody shame. The app works with the car, it's a valid attack vector.
That's like saying you didn't hack a linux box because you "just" broke SSHd.
I want to register my condemnation

Re: We have all the TV we need
well, for the BBC they would actually need to still have it around.
Re: But what if I choose to..
That's not what aereo did, aereo set up a seperate tv and streamed each one for each person watching.
Re: The same occulus ... and not the same and an Oculus Rift Creating CULTuring Machine World Order
You must be new here. You'll find all amfm posts like that.
There was a drought amfm posts for while, it's good to see them again. It's like when you stop seeing the nutter with the board reading "the end is nigh" for a week, you just start to worry.
Re: The same occulus
No, it would not be that one.
This would be the one that sold themselves to Facebook. It must have been a different one you are thinking of.
Re: Maybe we should encourage them...
"To try the mining operation, so they can LOSE $$$ in the process and give up on the idea after all.
The herders will price themselves out of business. Novel concept. When do they start."
I think you are confused. Botnet operators cannot lose money on any of this, mostly because they do not have costs. They may make less money, but that, unfortunately, is not the same as losing money.
Re: Circle of time
Yes they did come from netscape.
They went to Firefox because netscape communicator had become a bloated pile of excrement. Now they are doing the same thing netscape did to communicator to FF, and everyone is just accepting google's spying and moving to crome.
Good job Mozilla.
I think (what they are claiming) makes this novel, is the user can IM back commands...
That sets off my every "OMGSecurity" bone in my body, but that's the idea.
The problem is, the management of the OpenSSL project have been accused of not properly releasing information for risk assessment to affected parties. This creates a situation where meaningful collaboration cannot continue.
Combine with the facts that both projects remove element that OpenSSL maintains (API compatibility for BoringSSL, and OS support and FIPS140-2 support for LibreSSL). Overall I think these will be likely be more secure due to decreases in complexity that are things the OpenSSL project will not accept.

Re: You're right for the wrong reasons...
Are you seriously comparing an ARM dual core to an Intel Dual core?
He did go on to compare it to a dell (alienware) at the same price-point, which got you twice the CPU, and better GPU for the same price... plus it has a battery.

Re: Expansion Packs
Even expansion packs (lets call them DLC, as seems to be the custom) fit into an "it depends" category. If the game you paid for was incomplete, then it's scummy, If it's an additional story after the first completes, it's all good. We've actually had these types of expansions for quite some time as I remember seeing the same thing with the Wing Commander mission packs.
The problem is, there is always some debate over which is which.
(purely cosmetic items are good too)
In fairness, some of the best code I've ever written I did while drunk.
"Why get rid of the eye patch ?

Oh poor her... I'll take all the sniping elReg can toss as me with a laugh to scam the public dole like this.
Re: Bad poll?
It's quite logical. Even if the entire CO2 output of the US where stopped tomorrow, do you really think that would stop global warming? There is a problem with your logic the size of China... namely China. At the rate they are building (the dirtiest design they can come up with) coal fired power-plants, it will offset anything the Americans do anyway.
Of course, it's not JUST China, there are a number of nations which where not well developed enough to consider part of the Kyoto Accords, but even if we ignore everthing behind that curtain, we can't build hydro (save the sea(river?)kittens!), we can't build nuclear (OMG! it's gonna melt down!), solar and wind have an inability to provide load constantly. The reality is, this path isn't changing. So, no, I'm not interested in taking a rate hike to STILL have the entire world go to hell around me.
Re: Bad poll?
It's not just that the poll is bad, the vary IDEA of a poll is bad. It's easy to say you will do what you think is accepted as the "right thing," it's quite another to look at two different bills, pickup the one that's 10% higher and say "I want this one."
Re: This is nice but
"Isn't patent law made in such a manner, that if you do not uphold your patent you forfeit it (or am I thinking of TM?)"
You are thinking of TMs. TMs can be lost for not using them, not defending them, or no longer being distinctive to the brand (becoming generic).
Patents can only be lost by overturning them in court (which in theory should never happen, sadly though...) or expiring.
Re: It is not that <insert company> is not paying enough tax
TLDNR: Damn you Apple for following the law I don't agree with!
There are two solutions, one simple and one complex to this problem.
Simple: scrap corporate income tax all together, rely on sales tax (they are passing it on to you anyway)
Complex: get every nation in the world to give up a big chunk of their sovereignty and establish a world-wide corporate tax law. (yeah, right)
Can I get some clarification here?
Are the mouth-foaming, hairy-palmed right-wingers inept losers or brilliant masters of PR?
I've always had problems telling the difference when identifying caricatured villains.

Re: sounds good, or is it?
Most of the time, municipal roll-outs go quite well, from what I've seen. I'm sure there is some cronyism that happens, but mostly they start because the people on the board are pissed they can't get on. So the first time the mayor's cousin screws up access, he's gone.
Re: Tom Wheeler, FCC Chairman and chief cable industry lobbyist
Even if that weren't the case (and I fully believe you are correct), a duopoly is not what I consider a healthy competition.
The reality is, broadband service is a natural monopoly, you can't just have everyone ripping of the roads every week installing fiber. The best solution is to have the municipalities install and maintain a fiber network, then let whoever wants to sell service over it do so (for a nominal fee, to offset the maintenance).
I'm not sure I agree with you a hundred percent on your police work, there, Lou.
"No-one ever wanted a female mario or female sonic."
A VARY brief search of the internet proves this completely wrong. Just google "female mario" or "female sonic" with safe-search off. Go on, I dare you.
You are assuming that our industry has an equal gender interest. There are woman interested in technology, and there are men interested in fashion. Neither is within the (good or bad, your call) stereotype.
Re: that fps test is worthless
Yes, but if the game runs fast enough, WHO THE HELL CARES?
Too many benchmarks miss the entire question that's interesting: "Does it do what I want?" For a moblie device that means "does it hit the locked framerate, and which one has the longest battery life while doing that."
I came to point this out too, because it would really be news to Apple!
Most of the things from Austin Powers movies already sound like something from a adult shop... some of them ARE things from adult shops.
How I learned to stop worrying and love software licenses.
Yep, other licenses that do the same thing: GPL, BSD, CDDL, MIT
Honestly, it's not even worth complaining about.
He's right and wrong
It's definitely over-hyped. The vast majority of people won't get and aren't interested in it (at least beyond the "oh, that's cool." stage)
But for those who are somewhat creative or engineering types; for those who have (and use) a well stocked shop, it is a vary useful tool. With them getting down to 200 USD* for a monophotolithography printer (http://www.peachyprinter.com/). It's in the realm of a tool I'd buy just to use it a few times. Stereophotolithography is still outside that range, I think, but would even be better. I think it's like VR/AR in a lot of ways... part of the excitement is the rapid drop in price.
*photosensitive resins do cost more then plastic for extrusion machines, but also tends to be much better resolution, and handles over-hangs better.
there are neutral peering exchanges in N Amercia. the problem is, you have to have both parties willing to run a haul to it, and actually peer. Generally speaking, Comcast doesn't want to run fiber to 350E Cermak, even if it would lower the cost of transit, because doing so would mean a major upgrade to their networks and they would have to throttle netflix in order to keep their service crappy (right now, by just not updating and buying bandwidth from cogent they get that while having a credible counter-argument even IF net-neutrality passes).
Re: The wonders a lawsuit does
And everyone wonders why Americans sue, it gets things done.
(although it's sad that some companies are so anti-consumer-friendly they it takes those types of measures)
I would suggest you google sarcasm.
Re: All those steps required?
In my sample of 1 Android phone, there is 0% piracy. I'm not stupid enough to use a sample of one and claim it as representative of the entire Android world, you would do well to apply similar logic.
If we take our phones together, we'll have 50% of phones are rooted, and still 0% of phones have pirated software!
Re: @phil dude (as: No MaaS)
Pick a platform that hasn't had plenty. The most solid is probably Blackberry's QNX-platform, but we haven't seen that in phones for long (or many phones, for that matter), just cars.
Re: Sitting on the 184.108.40.206/8 here
A large number of the companies with /8s CAN'T be force-revoked, because noone has the authority to do it. Many of those allocations predate IANA's existence, so they lack they authority to do anything about it. Well, they can refuse new ranges to such orgs, but orgs with /8s generally have plenty, and don't care.
It would have to be a voluntary return. Let's just get off our collective asses and move to v6.
Hopefully this means we can start getting autonomous vehicles soon. It's the only upcoming feature that makes me really want to replace my current car.
