Does your TV support BlueTooth?
You know your telly is really 'smart' when it starts hacking you for its own amusement and profit!
Just to remind you not to plug in a mic, I am guessing.
Possibly not even security-related. I was always plugging my headphones into my mic jack in the dark under my desk until I changed cases and my new one has lit front panel port-icons.
I guess if you have an 'air-gapped' computer in the same roome as a networked one, they could (slowly) communicate back and forth.
But at least their prostate health will be tip-top.
But it might contain diamonds!
Yep. Australia is just more lax about ingredient list requirements. Manufacturers like to complain they can't fit any more on the label while their exact same product+package manages just that in other parts of the world with more pro-people government policies.
"If I had one day left to live, I would spend it in this seminar as it made the day seem like eternity."
Or 4 that just didn't find it in the least funny.
YAAC: "A brilliantly conceived but badly execute attempt to flatten Australia from space."
Wot? It wasn't flat enough already!?
they should encourage the militarised poachers to hunt Microsoft board members to extinction?
Every disclaimer that I have ever seen in the past couple of decades out of a packaged software house explicitly forbids its use in potentially life-threatening situations. So no sue-ball.
I prefer the descriptive contraction 'MoFo'
Might work out for breast cancer.
It's got what plants need.
Pollies won't end the 'War on Drugs' while they are getting so much slush funding from the big drug cartels to keep it up. Just like the illegal alcohol producers were the biggest fans of prohibition, the cartels like the prices being kept higher than they would be in a fair market.
I always have trouble keeping track of the petty small-time politics.
History doesn't have much good to say on that combination of concepts! :-)
If all the fast stuff is integrate on a SOC, with just low-pin-count for connecting to slow peripherals (USB, Network PHYs, etc.) I might even be able to go back to making my own computer mainboards!
Sounds like a euphamism for having one's head planted in one's posterior!
Don't forget, politics is often used by criminals. Need to shut that down too!
...properly supporting open media standards in a timely fashion?
(choke choke choke).
That's just infinite-monkey effect. Eventually one of the monkeys will say something you happen to agree with by pure chance.
"What could possibly go wrong when sending oil into space at 500 times sea level pressure?"
The US military will try to 'liberate' it?
But there is the rub. A depressingly large portion of humanity /don't/ have anything more important to worry about. Sad little lives, really.
I am only suggesting they obey the law of the region they are in. You can't go to prison for that. Wait. 'Merica. Nevermind.
for all the post-op/hormone-treatment trans-gender people across the US to descend on this place and make a show of using the bathrooms they are now legally required to. En masse. Ideally forming a nice long queue. The more masculine-looking the XXs and the more feminine-looking the XYs (all other variants as they feel appropriate) the better!
Also, as a social species, the willingness to help others and the resulting tendency to be helped by others is - for better or worse - a rather intrinsic part of our genetic programming.
As Drew sang:
"I put 100,000 pictures of my butt on the internet / so the NSA could spy on it / keep an eye on it / maybe call the FBI on it"
The whole song is worth a listen (slightly NSFW).
I'm still trying to use up all the free CF lamps we were given here in Aus several years back (I got into CF lamps before they were cool! :-) The bulb in my living room is one of the first I bought, 24 years ago, and still running!).
I don't use an ad blocker. I do use a powerful privacy-invasion / malware blocker. For some reason I see very few ads.
He who attacks a healer shall thereafter be denied healing.
Yes, though even in the US, the chances of being gunned down by a terrorist or a local nutter are still pretty miniscule.
Last year I had to break the universe by moving the stationary cabinet in my office.
And 97 percent of the MS-Windows users' need for admin rights are from poorly written (mostly third-party) software who's programmers haven't realised it isn't '98 anymore! (But they still pay for it :-( )
I believe it is called an AIO (All In One) PC. I think it is an Intel initiative.
And, unlike an iMac, you can - in theory at least - separate the mainboard out of the monitor to upgrade/replace either separately if you are above the no-user-servicable-parts-inside level of proficiency with tech. (And assuminy you can find someone who makes parts for the psudeo-standard!)
What if the machine's just (figuratively) turn around and completely ignore us?
It's number 2, I'm thinking.
Eyebrows of the world UNITE!
On the up side: lots more encrypted traffic for the TLAs to sift through.
I think MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) might be a bonus in this case!
more investors took an interest in what companies were blowing their money on.
Corporate Earth might actually be still functonal as a human service!
That BPI-M3 certainly looks nice. But I do notice the SATA is just a USB-SATA adapter hung off a USB hub on board, so not necessarily any better than a USB HDD plugged into a Pi. (Though you do have the option of not sharing that USB2 line with anything else and still having another port available, unlike the Pi).
8 cores, 2GiB ram and 8GiB eMMC are very nice, though.
However, until I see decent PowerVR 3D drivers in OSS, I won't be there.
No. NO. And isn't this a tech site or something?... NO!
Unless you are addressing memory as an absolute address over +2G* or relatively over +/-2G away from where your are, you will use the CPU's native 4 byte pointers. The vast majority of jumps and references will be rolled into 9-12 bit pointers burried in with the 32-bit op-code.
* 2's-compliment negative absolute addresses (which use the MSB that would otherwise get you to 4G) are generally reserved for kernel space.
Sheesh. Are people who haven't even glanced at an op-code sheet in their lives considering themselves CPU experts now? Of course they are! Even the 6502 had 8-bit varients of its addressing modes - this isn't a new idea!
You make it sound like we have two major parties, not just different types of mould growing on different sections of one.
I thought that was wrapping them in the material plush toys are made of because nomatter how bad the crash, there will always be a slightly singed but otherwise undamaged children's plush toy in the wreckage.
Comic Sans is fine. When used the way its designer intended (which certainly wasn't for large blocks of text!)
Walk fast and carry a clipboard.
I was wondering much the same - use memory-map comparisons to work out where the byte storing the number of password attempts is stored, then keep resetting it while walking the 10,000 possible PINs.
