the solution is....
don't buy IoT devices until they put some security in them. really simple. simple enough for me to implement.

they're still 2 years or more behind patching known hacks. since we're talking about hacks. my company has now banned flash, and I have turned it off at home now as well. not missing anything except Killfrog.com
and if their inspection bot crashes into dust, block those sites.
when ISP-whatever is blocking themselves, then they might decide to check out their hosted customers.
problem solved. let them drop off the Internet map and settle their little whine.
post bulletins that young and virile athletic girls be bussed to Broadcast House posthaste.
serves the Falklands right. at least the surviving shepherds will have enough light to see if any of the skeletons, formerly sheep, have disappeared.
and why the FCC got mindbent enough to think of selling it off in the first place makes me pick up the rope, put down the rope, pick up the rope, put down the rope.....
that makes it tech. stop the hacks, become a financial stock.
Kobalt is a registered trade mark for tools sold by Lowe's, and that trademark is at least 10 years old. This music outfit is infringing from its inception.
it's very old hat now to set priority low for IP data, high for IP phone, and top priority for internal network management, you know. then somebody downloading 450 Mb of manuals from a vendor is not going to hammer your conference call with market analysts.
if you're REALLY important, dual-path your IP the right way... separate networks, different physical paths, entrance points on opposite sides of the building, stout battery backups, nothing duplicates anywhere or lies parallel. monstrously expensive. but in cases of life-safety communications, like airplane control, it's routine and has been for decades.
at least it is over here in the US
you don't like what they're doing to you, you go to the gulags. lovely business plan.
look around the mall. it ain't valuable any more. over here in the 50 states, most malls are half leased, something to do with building 5 times more stores than people use.
I agree, if RS had gone Maker last year, they'd be growing. there are at least 5 3D printers under the $1000 mark, for instance. 3 bucks for a roll of filament, which the machines eat like popcorn. Raspberry PI headquarters and take that phone space, put in a round table and a big power supply, and hold Saturday afternoon "make it do something" classes. get the parts back on the pegboard.
nah. down at Tandy Tower, all the suits want slick phone apps. so that's what everybody wants, new phone every 5 months and push cute apps.
gurgle, and the drain is clogged again with another power tie.
lenders wouldn't let them. for sure they've closed about 300. I saw a report early this week that said about 700. but I rather doubt they had the cash to do that, and again, lenders don't want them to waste cash on silly things like mall rental buyouts and legal staff separation payments. they'd rather The Shack buys more robot toys and push them to... uh... I don't see anybody coming in...
got tied up an hour crossing the Canada/US border a few years ago one month after a radiation stress test. told the guys at the heart clinic the next year. now they have signs up all over the place, check website thus-and-so if you have to leave the country within 3 months of a test.
oh, and bacon? should set it up so you have to do a breath test, and no entry to the US if there is no yummy bacon detected. this is our heritage, and we will fight to the last man for a rasher.
(whispers) ROOT... KIT... (glass globe rolls down stairs and breaks)
take on all responsiblity, etc.
or it could be shown at National Guard armories.
considering it got mixed reviews at best in the California premiere, I'm betting they use the movie to sacrifice the torrents to the wildmen.
they DO have one. the most likely, considering one of the papers dislodged by the Nut Koreans referred to a MafIAA plan to freak the DNS servers as a piracy retort, would be to seed The Interview direct to torrents.
the Nut Koreans, wild and kicking out walls, would then wage war on the torrents.
so Sony wins in the end in their phantom war against the wrong guys, and the MafIAA would let them back in the club for liquid lunches.
"Hi, it looks like you are trying to get fired and scuttle all chance of acquittal in court by posting a picture. Do you need help with that?"
the harder one: comms failure.
the easy one: borked flight plan submissions. answer: spit it back in the pilot's face, like we do in the US. fix your problem, then resubmit. anybody who ever put a card deck in the pigeonhole and got a barfed printout back from JCL with no program on it should understand that. I am advised the US flyboy system says where the problem was when a flight plan is rejected. the stack of NOTAMs tacked on the wall (or that's how it worked back when I found these things out) needs to be read again to avoid hitting the next issue.
perhaps just leave notes on their home TVs... "Hi, Whisperer. Don't try to patent snooping without disclosure."
sell your Radio Shack stock and buy LS-15.
two explainations. one... they use a different set of sneakies to spy on their own. two... the sneaks from Nonameistan are using a different set of sneakies to spy on the "five eyes" guys, in hope of drawing all attention to the "five eyes" nations so they can keep the game going as long as possible and amass the money and tools to have flying cars.
the spy game is like that. redirection and red herrings.
it's a nice thing to be "not Cisco" when you are pushing the envelope. it's a crappy thing to be "not Cisco" when the envelope is empty.
if the EC cannot stand the Google business model, they can apply to be delisted from search results. and then EC nations will not be indexed or reachable from Google or its Chrome browser. simple. effective. final. how about it, pinheads?
this would certainly be a hell of a mess.
if wishes were horses, all would ride?
keep your road apples in the rear of the bus, please...
you know, the one you bought, the size of a stamp? if so, now you can test the technology in your own home!
if not, then it was the "special sauce" which is approximated by the Slingbox.
conflict? "shut down the road, start timers, and one gets delayed."
don't have room in the ROM? engage brakes, disable engine, "recalculating..."
this is not rocket science.
if you are on an antenna lead, you have one kind of access and one type of regulation and pricing (free, regulate at source.) if you are on a cable-tv or satellite, you have another (regulation at middleman, whatever pricing the market will bear.) if you are trying to stream, still another (market controls access, pricing is whatever this experiment is looking for, plus subscriber pays for the network at whatever cost the market will bear.)
there is no competition, there are various oligarchies dictating your lifestyle.
I have always believed that you need a flat regulatory environment, where the type of wire you have doesn't mean a damn thing about how you pay for and use a service. hopefully the FCC is going there. it is going to stun several of the oligarchies who are milking their piece of the system to the last drop. if they had to compete on a flat playing field, they'd be long dead working like that. I shed no tears, as they usually have the shittiest service, too.
if this was an actual takedown, there would be a smoking hole or two in China someplace, and they'd be screaming
how about that ad for General Genocide? click their icon, look for the gearwheel, click it, and select BLOCK OR REPORT. in the past, I have been clicking BLOCK. I am now also going to click REPORT, and join me in flooding the twits who are censoring the reported users until they stop this fulminating foolishness.
it's just that simple, Director.
I'll tell you, those executives are steamed beyond wrinkles, and there's no spinning the facts. better lock the door on this kind of behavior and come clean. I predict a delicate cycle of negotiations.
It has come to the attention of our legal department that your laws infringe upon the ability of Microsoft to lock your users in and screw them over. This will never do, and as a result, we are rescinding your ability to exist as a nation. You are required to turn over the keys within 7 days and leave the territory, except for those workers who are grinding out wireless mice and Xboxes. Failure to do so will require stern measures.
the alternative technology would be data-in, random scraps - out. Prior Art Exists (tm) ... any CompSci student's 100-level projects, or the "test your luck" search option in Google.
I think we have to have a miracle here. All pray to the great Steve that gave us the nonreplaceable battery...
but not using anything stupid like an Idrive handle, use the paddle transmission shifter controls on the steering wheel. this permits maximum carnage for the court charges!
that's some hefty silicon, folks. forklift chips? 100,000 watt Zeners? IBM concert amps?
I could believe 30 nm, perhaps. but that's 2000 technology, too.
lose the little boat from the ads, gain a printer for all the helldesk tickets. "weak flush at 85th and Central, mens, 3rd stall." "low paper, Edgington Court Starbucks, mens." "geysers and Sharknados, use extreme caution, 10th Crossing subway station, you can't miss it."
those are your AFCI arc-fault detecting breakers. but you don't need to put ethernet on the power line to whack those. all you need is a reasonably good 17 meter ham rig in a car. 17 seems to be the hot ticket based on the length of house wiring to the AFCI breakers.
the good news is that vendors have figured it out and are reconfiguring their filtering.
or maybe when generating stations start playing Mozart, speeding up and slowing down.
or when self-driving cars start line dancing on the freeway.
if they still can...
that OK with the court?
vinyl? RIAA curve in/out. digital? hacked and (occasionally) regenerated.
this on top of the compression/expansion, noise gates, preamp distortion, microphone effects, and multistage processing loss of definition all throughout the recording and duplication chain. tape has a 50 dB range with nonlinearities on the low end, and processing like dbx adds additional artifacts. digital recording is itself a series of compromises.
so to start with, there is no "true" fidelity in a commercial source.
I have always had my doubts about the 30s and 40s RCA research that "7% distortion is the point at which the human ear detects." that's as good as they could measure pure tones. and every improvement such as the feedback loop, beam-power tetrode, and differential amplifier stages iimproves on that.
in the beginning and the end, we have analog. careful use of analog technology across the chain provides fewer machine artifacts and a more realistic experience.
I'm smelling more ways to try and push 1-inch transducers and chips and calling that excellent.
when it's just another ploy to get me to dump all my stuff and buy new.
the push side of the market is looking desperately for another gimmick, while the pull side is way tired of "it's all crap, but this is better." we don't want to stuff the landfills and spend all over again out here.
free-as-in-beer and real spiffy. I have it on my WinSlows box, and like it.
not to mention, The Machine is the perfect way to kick underperforming, overcosting Itanic out the window into a dumpster conveniently parked underneath.
friend IBM probably has ten OS running on a Z-series mainframe by now, from JCL to containers holding windows, linux, and the like. if MachineOS is the manager for a bunch of system-containers like that or like Citrix, it looks like a chameleon, it shifts like a chameleon, but the user thinks they're running a native whatever. if the core and memory are agile enough, why the heck not? that's not new. not a 10-year project, either.
we've had a lot of new OS developed since the Univac 1, and there are always a bunch of young guys who want the chance to gin something up from scratch and get their name in the books.
practice. they have yet to work up to saying with a straight face "we will also put 4D in your flying car and pay off your mortgage if you bundle satellite, landline, and Uverse with our beer of the month club." but I'm sure the training sessions are scheduled...
actually, if FumbleNet slips you 50 IPv6 addresses and says have fun, you can still private 6000 machines behind one of them if you want. use one for web servers. one for mail. one for arranging those secret stock trades. and bank 46 of them.
surely it could take down the net! film at 11 on WACK.TV
