Methinks he's some sort of alien artificial intelligence
"Because I don't believe this is possible without some information unwittingly leaking out from the encrypted data due to a fault in the encryption algorithm"
I don't even pretend to understand homomorphic encryption, but that sir, is the logical fallacy of personal incredulity.
"The argument from incredulity is a logical fallacy that occurs when someone decides that something did not happen, because they cannot personally understand how it could happen." - Rational Wiki
LastPass uses public-private key cryptography with RSA-2048 to allow users to share the key to their vault with trusted parties, without ever passing that information in an unencrypted format to LastPass. When Emergency Access is activated, each user has a pair of cryptographic keys - a public key to allow others to encrypt data for the user, and a private key that allows the user to decrypt the data that others have encrypted for them.
The key used to encrypt and decrypt your vault data is encrypted with the Emergency Access contact’s public key, and can be decrypted only with their corresponding private key. When setting up Emergency Access, you are using the recipient’s public key, encrypting your vault key with that public key, and then LastPass stores that RSA-2048 encrypted data until it’s released after the waiting period you specify. Only the recipient can decrypt the data, so no one else can decrypt it without access to the private key of the recipient you’re sharing it with, which is encrypted with their master password key. This process is completely automated, with no action required by the end user, and ensures that the data is inaccessible by LastPass or outside parties.
I'd rather have the $1million from the 100 customers paying $10k, thanks.
Agreed, the folks in the store are way easier to deal with and usually have better deals if you're signing up. I figured it would be the exact opposite.
"That aside (for the moment), given that the hotels are private property, they are perfectly within their rights to prohibit people from using mobile hotspots, [..snip..] or for a store to prohibit use of mobile phones"
No, they're not. The FCC already ruled on this back in November of 2006. (http://news.cnet.com/FCC-Boston-airport-cant-block-airlines-Wi-Fi/2100-7351_3-6131618.html) Sure, a store or movie theater can ask you to leave if you're being a nuisance with your cell phone, but they cannot blanket "No cell phones."

Is that people are using Bing.
Plus they're using public bus stops, causing additional congestion and some of the public buses are having to do things like let their passengers off in the middle of the street, causing even more problems.
Even Oracle's support for Oracle is godawful. I had a high-priority "performance is in the toilet, please advise" ticket in for a few days, sent Oracle a half dozen reports they requested and never heard a peep otherwise. Had to spend a few hours digging through trace myself. Thanks Larry!

...I'm a Comcast customer who will stay on his own hardware thankyouverymuch.
Skeptical DBA is skeptical.
Can you take a transactionally consistent backup without locking the entire database yet?
I don't even bother reading the Lewis Page global warming articles anymore, I just skip to the comments.
So she goes to a science and engineering school, but objects to the RFID on wacky religious grounds?
How about expulsion for not believing in science?
Downvote, because we all know that Canada is the 51st state/
No no, remember. Those people are idiots and get absolutely no value for their subscription and are mindless Micro$oft drones. Or something like that...
"Gaming geeks (will move to Linux if they can)"
Because you speak for all gaming geeks everywhere?
I'm a gaming geek, I don't want to move to Linux. For that matter, I don't want to take my nifty high resolution PC games and put them on my TV either.
That is all. I do not want or need another console. I certainly don't want to develop for another platform.
"Pathetic, eh? OK, what frameworks does Windows have for running Mac games?"
It doesn't need one.
I'm officially offering my services as the new CEO of Groupon at 80% off the rate the current CEO makes.

Limit 1 per person, may buy 2 additional as gifts. Must sign waiver. Must be 18 or older. See the rules that apply to all deals.
No, just no Mr. Nielsen. How are those micropayments working out for you?
IIRC there is also a restore partition and another system partition that total up to about 15 gig on a new surface.
This is not change, this is a company whose business model can't function in the current economy trying to alter the economy via legislation.
So it should be OK to just steal whatever media you want? No.
The judgement amount is way out of whack with reality, but there needs to be some kind of penalty. Something like best estimate of actual damages plus punitive damages based on the defendant's ability to pay would be fair. We all know that what is eventually going to happen is that she's not going to be able to pay a $220,000 judgement, will file for bankruptcy, and her life will be slightly more annoying for 7 years 'till the bankruptcy clears. -- Assuming she has a house and car, she'll probably be able to keep those.
So is .jihad available?
And thanks to Ian for being one of the few journalists to ask an intelligent question at the press conference.
Better yet, why not not ditch all of the conspiracy theories and just back out of the treaties that allow the US to do this sort of thing?
If you factor out two things that kill a lot of fat people, they die less than skinny people. Brilliant. If you also factor out cancer, do cancer patients live longer than healthy people?
"Who do they think they are?"
People who have treaties with other nations that allow them to police the world.
No, there aren't any cases of being tried and convicted twice, that would violate the 5th amendment to the US Constitution. This sort of thing is mainly used (IIRC) to prosecute citizens that commit crimes abroad that generally aren't punished in the country of commission. e.g.: American men going to Thailand to have sex with child prostitutes.
...here in Las Vegas we have a shop called the "Zombie Apocalypse Store"
It's pretty common but not common to talk about it.
And Microsoft's new social website wants me to log in with Facebook... Derp?
Informal survey around the office says "Legos." We have a lot of the little bricks here, mostly Star Wars sets.
"The metric system is the tool of the devil. My car gets 40 rods to the hogshead and that's the way I likes it!"
The tax in question is on US based income. The US already taxes capital gains like dividends and interest of foreign nationals that is earned in the US.
"The agency model is the one that offers consumers the prospect of an open and competitive market for e-books"
How is a market competitive if they're all selling the same thing for the same price?
Right after he left congress. I'd bump into him in the elevator or on the way to the lunch counter. He just exuded this aura of disgust. I don't think we're in any danger of him being elected and trying to seize the moon in the name of 'merica.
Every retailer who cares to keep up with it just gives a "cash discount". As long as the posted price is the credit price or the credit price is posted first, it's a perfectly acceptable alternative to visa/mc.
It's not the most popular transactional engine for MySQL. It's the only one that's production ready.
Just take out a mortgage to pay for it. Not that you ever have any intent in paying the mortgage back, what with the end of the world and all...
"I was running Firefox 3.6 and last night I clicked to open up a page on ThePirateBay and got immediately rooted."
But, I'd call that poetic justice.
"Regarding burqas and the like, Jarvis protested: 'I was just standing up for my beliefs. Muslims can walk around in whatever religious gear they like, so why can't I?'"
Because Islam is a real religion.
...and you can whine to them for attention.
NASA can have more money once every US citizen has health care.
They just need to bounce a graviton particle beam off the main deflector dish...
...why was Kevin Smith, who arguably has more than a few dollars to his name, flying on the dirt-cheap value airline/flying bus?
A link and an icon show up in Gmail one day. I click it. I notice that I somehow already have 6 people following me. Preemptive stalking? Lolwut?
