'Printer Ready'. Er… you actually want to print? What, right now?

Potemkine

Toyotism

Today's printers are really good to help us to implement the '0 paper' policy.

Nowadays it's like printers are disposable and intended to work only once.... consumerism at best.

Blocking out the Sun won't fix climate change – but it could buy us time

Potemkine

The article starts with the predicate that global warming is bad.... That one should be demonstrated first.

For instance, if some Islands may disappear, huge quantities of lands from Canada, Groenland, Russia and more will become available. So, why is Global Warming mandatory bad?

US military readies drone submarine hunter

Potemkine

Re: sub hunting

Making it a sub would be more complicated (= more expensive, more prone to failures), when deploying a variable depth sonar fits the need to listen below the thermocline.

Keep your secret secret

"This information can be easily retrieved by looking at the file’s timestamp [and] is a huge design flaw that allows retrieval of the AES key without having to decrypt it with the" attacker's key, he says."

Thanks for the tip, I'm sure future attackers will note that one :mad:

NSA? Illegal spying? EU top lawyer is talking out of his Bot – US gov

Potemkine

False indignation

Why would the US have to worry? They have their trojan into the EU, spying for them and passing them all the information they need on european citizens, companies and governments.

Re: Why the percentage shock?

You can't get away from the biological facts that men are programmed to impregnate as many women as possible, while women are programmed to choose a dependable partner who sticks around.

So time travel does indeed exist! This post coming directly from the 19th century is the proof!

EU clears UK to give £50m to SABRE space launcher engine

Potemkine
Facepalm

No need to be angry just because the Eurofighter is just a big pile of dung, just able to fight the war that could have happened 30 years ago

You know, Dassault didn't need any external knowledge to build a delta fighter, even with canards surfaces like the company designed for the Mirage 4000...

Re: A brand new Euro space-plane - Yay!

No, it would be the same commission that says if public money given to a private company is a distortion of competition.

Without this rule, I bet some european states would be pleased to help financially their national industries to crush their EU competitors.... I doubt UK would win playing that game.

Verizon to world: STOP opening dodgy phishing emails, FOOLS

Potemkine

Corporate hackers often targeted lawyers, marketing staff and human resources within corporate environments in phishing runs because these departments regularly deal with a lot of email, according to Verizon.

I may have another explanation to explain why these departments are targeted, more related to their specific approach to IT in general and to IT security in particular...

Porn on Blogger – Google takes stiff action

Hide this breast that I dare not see.

I feared for a moment that racist, xenophobic, antisemitic, misogynist, homophobic or religiously zealotic blogs could also be restricted.

Pictures of a nude breast or of a penis are well known to pose much bigger threats to Society, thanks Google to take care of our sexual morality!

So are in charge gurus not listening to others, being overconfident to be so 'leet that the World should bend over to celebrate their Greatness and things go wrong? Astonishing...

There was a time now gone for a long time when the people would have taken torches and pitchforks... maybe it could be reinstated as web 3.0, with a direct interaction between users and deciders?

Égalité, Fraternité - Oui, peut-etre. Liberté? NON, French speedcam Facebookers told

Potemkine

Freedom != Do whatever you want

"La liberté consiste à pouvoir faire tout ce qui ne nuit pas à autrui : ainsi, l'exercice des droits naturels de chaque homme n'a de bornes que celles qui assurent aux autres Membres de la Société la jouissance de ces mêmes droits. Ces bornes ne peuvent être déterminées que par la Loi."

" Liberty consists in the freedom to do everything which injures no one else; hence the exercise of the natural rights of each man has no limits except those which assure to the other members of the society the enjoyment of the same rights. These limits can only be determined by law."
