"We received a request from a local law enforcement agency to remove YouTube videos of police brutality, which we did not remove."
For once, Well done Google. Can we have a "slightly less evil than expcted" icon?
...You're still going to be killing yourself. Death without notice - yay.
"The data comes from UBS and takes in conversations had with more than 500 smartphone owners globally."
Glad to see they went with a statistically significant sample size. Oh wait...
...the next day, the boffins recieved letter from the Universe's Safety Camera Partnership demaining a £30 trillion fine, and three points on their science licence. It turns out when people said light was the universal speed limit, it was only the fear of the fine that kept that in check.
Neutrinos: the boy racers of the subatomic world!
FB Guy 1: Let's reorder everyone's posts so they don't know what was said when!
FB Guy 2: Wont that be a tad confusing?
FB Guy 1: It's OK, we'll also remove the timestamps from all posts so people don't notice!
FB Guy 2: ...
I bought one...
Havn't looked back - amazing piece of kit, and I love WebOs. What I think this proves is that tablets will take off, when price/performace reaches the level that the at-a-loss touchpad reached. At the moment they're a preimium device, when they become a commodity, things will change.
This is becoming more of an issue...
...In the past, I always forwarded my laptop traffic over SSH to prevent this. However since I got my tablet, that isn't possible (Although its a HP Touchpad so I could VPN it I suppose) but with the profusion of smartphones and tablets, more people are at risk from this.
"If we interfere, by allowing susceptible members to survive and pass their susceptibility on to their offspring, we are weakening the population as a whole, and building in a reliance to the techniques and technology for survival to the species. Just think what would happen if modern medicines became unavailable. I don't think we would quite go back to the dark ages (after all, we do now know about how infections spread, and can take physical precautions), but it would not be pleasant."
No. Humanity as a whole only survives BECAUSE of it's technology. Try removing the computer, motorised transport or even fire, and see how many people off from that. The loss of ANY major technology would be catastrophic
Having a diverse genetic population is a good thing, even if some of the population are more susceptible to some diseases because of it. Diverse genetics allows a better chance of survivng a new threat.
Privacy Authorities? In this country?
They say "carry on and do what you like".
So what about me...
Who spent most of his teenage years listening to music *whilst* reading? do the effects cancel out? SCIENCE MUST KNOW!
...they will continue to sleepwalk into a dictatorship, just so long as the government doesn't touch their right to bear arms.
As I unnderstand it (not having set it up myself), the software encodes the ssh data into ascii, and sends it as a subdomain to a domain you control the DNS for, the response comes from the DNS server in the txt record.
Many of these unsecured-wireless-pay-for-access systems allow the DNS traffic through before blocking the site from loading. Thus tunneling over DNS gets around the paywall. Unfourtunately, this method is not exactly the most efficient, or the uickest!
...this is bypassable using ssh over DNS? The crippled speed might make it not worth it, but would be interesting to see technically!
It's just the fact that your driving habits anhd thus, your movements, remain on a database for umpteen years that's the problem.
It saved me in my degree. Twice.
...So I always recommend: Dropbox. Works on Win,Mac and linux. Simple enough, even an airhead scientist can set it up.
I find it strange...
...that in America, modders of consoles get prosecuted for the crime's their customers amy or may not commit, but gun stroes are not prosecuted (As long as they followed the states laws on it) for the crime their customers commit.
For those of you who've not heard of it before...
...Have some pictures :D http://stardust.jpl.nasa.gov/photo/aerogel.html
This is not the title you are looking for.
I may not always see eye-to-eye with Mr. Page on military articals, but when it comes to describing the sheer craziness of DARPA, you win one thousand internets, and I will gladly buy you this beerin exchange just for the amusment you give me with these articals!
This example is stupid.
Sorry, but see that line there that says "Google Finance Yahoo Finance MSN Money DailyFinance CNN Money Reuters"
Surely linking to your competitors at the top of the results is a good arument against it being an antitrust situation?
"But what's the harm of telling them the name of the first bird I ever snogged?"
If said bird on facebook they may suggest you as a friend to her, and depending how that relatonship ended, that could get messy :P
The problem is...
...We are not, as a nation, rich enough to cover all bases. We can cover them all half-arsed, or we can cover the most likely ones well, but we do not have the moolah to cover all bases in an effective way.
Nice to see...
...that despite turning 23 recently, I still have the mind of a six year old. "In a study funded by European energy megacorp DONG" made me giggle like the big child I blatently still am :D
...he was. He was considered innocent of not disclosing the password, and then they proved it. So he was guilty. The problem here is not convicting him for a crime they havent proved, it's them criminilising behaviour that *should* be a persons right, i.e not to self-incriminate.
You have the right...
...to remain silent.
Or not if we decide so,
So trident defendants riddle me this: If you state that we *need* a nuclear deterrent, do you also agree that every other nation in the worl should be allowed to buy nukes for the same reason (Or even if we limit it to just every democratic nation)
If yes, fair enough. You're consistent at least, but yours is a world I dont want to live in.
If no, what (apart from blind patriotism) is different about the Uk?
Is free, but not FOSS :P
Long acronyms after names are pretencious, and should never be done.

Yes this whole post was just to rip off Red Dwarf.

There were actually 64 group stage games, and none of them were Holland-Brazil, I think you may have an error somewhere in your predictions :P
Unless you mean POST group stage games of course!
...as a graduate in bioinformatics (Which is basically Biology and Computer science with half the useful bits of comp sci stripped out >.<) does this increase or decrease my chances of ending up in "personal services"?
The idea is that none of the executioners can be sure that they killed him, for the state of their mental health. For the same reason, one of the guns (at random) is loaded with a blank, so each officer doesn't know if he's fired a real bullet or not.
