"You can prevent this, there are lots of ways to do so."
Please, by all mean share the "lots of ways..." that you claim to know.
Or do you expect us to just Google it?

Re: All men have the right to Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness (this is not it!)
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.-" Declaration of Independence
Please note that it says "among these" when referring to the unalienable Rights. "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" are just the examples of some of those rights. Many others, like the Right to speak your mind in public and to be secure in your papers against unreasonable searches are mentioned in the Constitution.
People seem to forget that the "Founding Fathers" wanted to get the point across that people have more Rights as individuals than just the ones they mentioned.
If we let them, the governments and big corporations will strip us of ALL those Rights if we let them.
Sooner or later the People will make a line in the sand and say "this is as far as it goes".
I just hope it will not be too late when it happens.
Re: I am not saying "if you have nothing to hide"....
"information is good."
But too much info is not. Can you say "Information overload".
Even if the cop is a speed reader it will take extra time to assimilate the info beyond "has out standing warrant". After a short time any benefits this app may have will be lost. The only thing the cops want to to know is "can I arrest/ticket this person", all the extra comments about how there are children present in the house or a 72 year old grandmother will get ignored.
Re: Nothing puts me off a film more
When I saw the previews I was like "Ooooo, looks cool", then I saw Freeman and thought "I want to see this movie".
Then I saw Cruise.
Oh well, there will be some other CGI extravaganza hitting the theaters this summer that will get some of my money.

Re: sad @ dogged...
Thanks for taking the hit and saving the rest of us.
I was pondering following the link when I read your comment.
Maybe he has you, but not me.
I said goodbye to MS crapware years ago. I have one old laptop with XP breading dust bunnies in the back of the closet just in case I ever need it but my primary laptop and desktops are FOSS all the way.
OK, not all of my software is FOSS. World of Goo and Minecraft may be closed source but they are both available on Linux, and companies that support Linux get my support..
Re: I'd shoot them if they did that to me.
It would be better to invoke Nullification. Nullification says that the Jury could not in "good conscious" find the defendant guilty and are invoking their Constitutionally granted authority to nullify the law, ignore the evidence and Judges instructions.
US Judges and Prosecutors HATE this clause and don't tell the Jury about it anymore. It used to be part of the instructions given to the Jury before deliberations.
Re: the issue disappears as you learn new ways of working
Not all of us will "carry on buying Microsoft". Only the sheep without the wit to do more than follow the herd.
Some of us will choose other options.
Debian + Trinity Desktop Environment is my choice.
I think the OP has the SR-71 confused with the YF-12. Easy to do since the have almost identical airframes, the SR-71 was a little longer and seated two. The biggest difference is that the YF-12 was made to be equipped with weapons to serve as an interceptor as well as straight recon.
Only three are confirmed to have been built.
I would also point out that the supposed excess of firearms in the USA has done nothing to stop the likes of the MPAA and RIAA from engaging in similar tactics.
Also, Canada has more guns per person than the USA, yet a far lower rate of gun related violence. The firearms aren't the issue, its the culture.

Re: Well you are overlooking something
"I think you will find that most people DO want a laptop that works out of the box"
People don't care what OS their hardware comes with, They just want it to work the way they expect it to.
Any installed OS that is correctly installed and configured will meet over 85% of the general populations needs.
The rest buy the hardware to meet a need, graphic design, games, engineering, server, etc., etc., and will of course want an OS that will let them do that.
I have noticed that lately the legal system of most countries have less to do with "Justice" and are more about enforcing some political agenda.
Just look at whats happened to Dotcom, McKinnon and Alfred-Adekeye;
And I might be wrong but I seem to remember that the whole idea of extradition was to get people CHARGED with a crime back to where they can face trial. Using it to "ask a few questions" seems a little like using a RPG to swat a fly.
Re: Established processes?

they have a process on the books for how to take a piss.

Re: Isn't this configurable ?
Are you sure it works?
Or does it re-encode the data and hide it in the picture itself while sending a message to the MIBs that you are trying to hide your location/personal info?
Its a closed source app, you can't check the code to be sure.

Re: Reading Comprehension.
Is that going to be the same decade that actually brings us 10 years closer to commercial Fusion?
I'll believe in commercially viable synthetic hydrocarbons when they hit the market and cost less than "natural" petrol. Until then they go in the same stack with fusion, super capacitors, ultra fast charging batteries for electric cars and super efficiency solar cells. All of which have been 10 to 20 years off for the last 30+ years.
Re: What is the brand worth?
MS never Trademarked the "Windows" product name and IIRCC they almost lost claim to it back when they tried to sue Linspire over its use of the term windows to describe how it's desktop looked/worked. MS settled before the case made it to court, many legal experts expected the judge to declare "windows" a generic computing term, then everyone could make a "Windows" like desktop and advertise it as such.
If MS changed the name they would lose any claim to "Windows". Ballmer and friends may not be the sharpest but they are not that stupid.
Until then collectors will hunt them in the wild. Their known habitat may be in a protected area but that won't stop people desperate for a money.
Damn cute they are. In danger they will be.
Tux. Just because ...
No water, no food. Water that is safe to drink and irrigate fields with is becoming rare. And to all those who would point at the ice caps and say there is all the water we need, how do you get the water to where its needed? Pipelines? Who pays for them? Desalinization plants? They cost a bundle to build and operate, and you still need those pipelines to deliver the output to those in need.
The biggest and bloodiest wars of the 21st Century are going to be over water, with those that are ONLY over religion being a very close second.
Criminal Legal System. The rare trace of "Justice" it may contain is just a fluke.
I'm still wondering whether the Pope may have killed the investigations because anyone following the trail of child molesters in the Church would have ended up at his doorstep.
Wait a sec
The big engines make sense when you think about it.
The Eagles would lift off going straight up but then use the main engines to get into/change orbit
Getting off the ground is easy, getting into orbit is what takes all the power.
Dragon's Domain had to be THE scariest episode of the whole series.
Had more than one nightmare related to it back in the day.
The worst part was that it's victims seemed to snap out of the mind lock just before they got eaten.
Still get the creeps when I think about it.
( No icon because The Reg doesn't have one creepy enough. Thankfully)
And from what I hear the people at JPL prefer it too.
A raise of the glass to both the rovers and the people who built them.
At least he followed his dream and actually did it. How many of us have said "that would be so cool if I could do that" about our flat, yard, car or motorbike, and never did anything because we didn't have the money, our own place, just didn't want to hear the silly comments or just didn't think our dreams were important enough to actually do something about.
He did it.
First rounds on me.
A site filled with pictures of blade servers with huge hard disks, and the usage graphs showing lots of I/O processing.
I'm getting exited just thinking about it!
The one with the hand lotion and box of tissues please.
Other than the "Sky Crane" they have already done everything you mention before, On Earth, Venus, Mars, Titan and Jupiter.
As to the crane, its really just an extension of the Viking landers and the moon landers, only with newer tech. Pathfinder, Spirit and Opportunity being excellent examples of new tech (air bags) being used for the first time.
I've worked with the people at JPL. It isn't just a job for them, its their Bliss (read Joseph Campbell if you don't get it).
I have faith in their abilities to pull this off.
May be a lot bigger than 95 Billion
Try 10^23 times bigger than the visible universe.
Maybe. Ain't science fun?
Replace all the pictures in your FB account with ones of Zukerburg.
Hard to imagine a bigger dickhead than that.
A tactical move?
Have a small part of your forces move without trying to hide, being really obvious in fact, and expect them to be countered while the main, and far deadlier, force moves in secret to the target by another route.
SOPA may just be the diversion, full of sound and fury, but intended to fail while something else much worse follows the ACTA route. Another advantage of this tactic is that if something of the dangerous bill does leak out it will be discounted as an anti-COPA rumor by someone trying to stir up some FUD about COPA.
The one with the anti-paranoia meds in the pocket please.
Of course, its only paranoia if someone isn't out to get you.
New Horizons, the mission to Pluto, had the highest Earth departure velocity but it will never overtake Voyager 1.
Voyager 1 was accelerated by gravity slingshots around the outer planets during it's visits and currently has the highest cruising speed of any probe so far.
Voyager, Pioneer and New Horizons. A million years from now they will likely still be out there, silent and alone in the darkness between the stars. Testaments to the existence of a species long since gone (extinct or ascended, take your pick), and perhaps forgotten.
God speed and a safe journey.
Sometimes I wonder if certain groups already know there is something out there, but not where its from.
I'll bet that the Aztec's didn't know exactly where the Spanish where from, only that they existed.
True but ...
"Common sense" isn't all that common unfortunately.
infringment NOT theft
Please get your facts straight.
Copyright infringement is NOT theft. Theft is defined as depriving someone of an item, copyright infringement is making a copy without the permission of the creator/owner.
By claiming that downloading is theft you are showing that you are gullible and have been brainwashed by the media companies into thinking exactly what they want you to.
To claim that downloading a perfect digital COPY of a DVD/BD is theft is like saying that you are stealing the Mona Lisa if you download a high-res digital photo of it.
IIRC it was a 60-70 carat (12-13g) perfect diamond used in one of the Venus landers, diamond being the only material with the right combination of optical/strength/corrosion resistance characteristics for a camera lens or such.
NASA had to pay import fees amounting to 44 percent of its cost when they imported it from SA, but the fee was refunded when NASA signed a statement that the diamond would not be resold after it was sent to Venus.
Can't find much about it on the web since its one of those little "pre-internet" side notes in space exploration.
