If you have more than one of these things, or other similarly operated sensors, how do you know which one of several mass produced chips you are listening to?
I have a prepaid credit card (registered to me, not bought at a store) and it is not accepted for certain kinds of payment, such as those that need ongoing payment authority. I believe that hosting firms would require a 'regular' credit card that didn't have the possibility of runing empty and probably because they want your registered name and address in case of problems.
It's a safe bet that organised criminals who plan violence as part of their operations don't think about things in the same way that you or I do.
Is there any indication that the people involved were using encryption as part of their 'activities'?

"... a customer commitment to investigate reported security issues ..."
Obviously, the customer has to investigated reported security issues themselves.
Will Target's executives lose their bonuses this year or will they be given bonuses for speedy resolution of the settlement process; then pay rises to reflect their recently aquired and valuable experience in this important area of corporate activity.
Would it be possible to spoof a connection and deliver a mocked up error page saying "Get a life" or something like that? I have a more evil idea in mind but I'm not going to say what it is, in case it happens to one of you lot one day.
I haven't lost any photos etc for fifteen years. I started with a 250GB drive on my LAN and a 250GB 'backup copy' in a desk drawer; (yes, it should be stored in a friend's house). Now, I have a 2TB drive on the LAN and 2 x 1T backup drives in the drawer. It's not difficult to organise and is resistant to computer madness or single instances of personal stupidity.
The only serious use I can think of for personal/domestic cloud storage is for convenient sharing/showing of files to friends and family. Dropbox is good for that and is free for small amounts of storage, as are other providers. I can't understand why people pay monthly to use 'the cloud' to purely store personal photos and music/video collections when you consider that a new 1TB hard drive can be had for about £35 or a 2TB drive for about £55.
That works too.
The essay generator could pass its output to the essay marker to get feedback of its own score, then adjust its own output so as to maximise its score. If done properly, this would result in a 'perfect' essay.
When I placed the cursor over that link, it showed me the URL, with '.pdf' at the end. Doesn't your browser do that?
.... thepiratebay is running on a .org.ua (Ukraine) domain as it slowly sails the seven seas (metaphorically). Anybody who's seriously interested in connecting to it will avoid any ISP blocks by using a VPN plugin for their browser or have a full VPN set up.
Because you're a goddam bore!
A can of Mortein ...... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortein
Can anyone explain how these values are related to the provision of 2 Amps from a low voltage power supply?
There's an overpriced tech toy for that.
"... although there should be judicial involvement it should be an oversight of political decisions, rather than supplanting them."
Does this mean that the Bishop thinks that Investigatory Powers will be used for political purposes rather that legal purposes?
"At the end of the day, the role of the judiciary is to be kept clear and distinct from the political process."
I thought that one of the roles of the judiciary is to give protection from abuse of political powers.
It's a product ID number. The user is the product.
"Tierney claims the company says more risk-averse customers can buy more expensive and better secured devices."
It's important to differentiate the key features within your product range.
"Immediately my Osprey Mini started receiving premium text messages ..."
I'm convinced that those actions are technically theft, in law. So, why aren't the buggers in court?
It's a couple of miles south from Kingston upon Memory.
Can yours penetrate fog? (Does 79GHz penetrate fog?)
Can somebody explain what these teams are and do?
I couldn't fathom that out.
Sighs, I know what you mean. Mint's 'Caja' seems to do everything that Nautilus used to do so it might be possible to use it, somehow?
Don't tell him your username Pike!
Using reasonable assumptions, how would the areal storage density compare with present 'mainstream' magnetic HDDs? I assume that the device could be made in the form of a small sheet containing nanowires and surrounded/wrapped in drive and sense devices to give a standard 3.5" or 2.5" form factor.
Isn't there an app for that?
The laws of salvage only apply to a vessel that is somehow damaged or 'stricken' in some way. Salvaging military vessels (without the owner's permission) is against international law.
"... controlled via satellite by landlubbers in air-conditioned cubicles, ..."
I used to work a couple of desks away from a man who kept a bottle of rum in his desk. You could catch a smell of it when he added it to his tea. It was an open plan office so he couldn't have sodomy or the lash.
The old domestic plug colour coding was green = earth, red = live, black = neutral. These were 'sensible' in terms of their representation but the problem was that people with red-green colour blindness could easily make a lethal mistake in wiring them up.
The modern colours are yellow/green striped = earth, brown = live, blue = neutral.
Neutral is the same as earth potential under ideal conditions and serves as a current return line.
"... abuse by organisations well known for abusing even the smallest oportunity."
Also, where are the legal penalties for agency employees/contractors who misuse the data?
Isn't the UA header only seen by the web server you're accessing (after decryption at that end)?
Everybody does it!
That's one hell of a coincidence.
What would happen if you fastened this thing to your dog's leg? I'm assuming you have (or have access to) an active outdoors type of dog.
Warren Buffet once said that he only invested in industries that he understood, when his strategy of not investing in internet type stocks was questioned during the 'dotcom' boom. He was regarded as a wise man after the dotcom bust, of course. Maybe his understanding of IBM and the 'computer industry' is a little behind the times?
About 3 years ago (maybe), the staff at Asda started asking people for their postcode when buying things at the tobacconist counter and paying by cash. This lasted for a few months. The first time it happened, I said that I couldn't remember but after that happened I started giving them the postcode for the Asda store, which they typed into the till terminal. I assume it was an experimental marketing exercise and I know it was bloody annoying.
It seems reasonable that they should.
"... Thunderbirds back in the 1960's didn't require the suspension of disbelief ..."
They managed to keep the location of Tracy island secret despite regular rocket launches and the purchase and delivery of large amounts of rocket/jet fuel? etc ....
.... people downoad from torrents?
Anybody who says that deserves to be locked up.
It seems to mean that if you do want to have access to the source code then you need to go with FOSS software.
Agreements where the source code is placed in escrow, in case the supplier goes bust, would seem to be prohibited by this statement, even if the supplier is happy to do so.
Maybe it should have said, "You don't have to give your source code unless you want to."
The discharge process requires oxygen, which I assume would come from the atmosphere for any simple applications. Given the apparently delicate chemistry, would there be any atmospheric pollutants that might 'poison' the battery? I'm thinking about nose to tail commuter traffic.
Given that oxygen is a consumed reactant, how much oxygen would be needed to generate adequate power for a car to accelerate in town traffic? The battery might need a compressed air supply to give adequate power for practical applications.
The charging process generates 'waste' oxygen .... be careful.
There aren't many people who are capable of doing that, let alone understanding it. Maybe you could set up a commercial web-based service?
This shows how important it is to clear all important communications and statements with a native speaker.
A family home, yes ... but it said "... many internet users ...". Maybe they mean libraries, internet cafes, universities, companies, etc? (I should have thought of that, thank you.)
