MY PREDICTION...

tor will be around long after Putin has been consigned to the dust-bin of history.

off topic, but does anyone else find the new iPhone ad (crayons are dangerous) particularly nauseating?

top tip

apple owners, rather than risking lethal software updates, just buy new kit every few months.

British cops cuff 660 suspected paedophiles

emmanuel goldstein

Re: Police declined to explain how they "snared" the suspects

they claim to be monitoring and interdicting people using tor. I don't buy that. tor is still pretty much opaque to law enforcement.

and whilst I'm glad they've busted a load of perverts, I'm also glad there are parts of the internet that are truly free.

BMW i8 plug-in hybrid: It's a supercar, Jim, but not as we know it

Re: The advert

could not agree more. unfortunately today's breed of corporate marketing drone will never risk anything remotely creative. it's incredibly frustrating for ad agencies and incredibly boring for viewers.

Silk Road dealer 'SuperTrips' faces 40 years for DVD drug imports

emmanuel goldstein

bullshit article

bad journalism. you are, at best, just repeating what the cops have told you.

you say he shipped 104kg mdma to USA in 18 months.

but then you say he sent 500g mdma per week.

doesn't add up.

do some fucking investigating rather than echoing the feds

TrueCrypt audit: Probe's nearly all the way in ... no backdoor hit yet

emmanuel goldstein

if there are "backdoors" to be discovered, I would expect to find them in the cryptographic code. since this has yet to be audited, it's too early to declare that truecrypt is kosher.

Mt Gox staff tried to warn CEO of Bitcoin loss risks – reports

emmanuel goldstein

not surprised

i sold 2000 or so bitcoins through gox between Feb and June 2012. the trading itself was kushti but there were some nerve-shredding delays when it came to wiring GBP back to the UK. it always turned up in the end but I remember on at least two occasions the delays and lack of explanation lead me to believe my money had gone missing.

Candy Crush King sees IPO go sour as stock price heads south

emmanuel goldstein

this is symptomatic...

global equity markets have entirely decoupled from underlying economic fundamentals. as the indices are pumped to new records by the magic of QE, it is hardly surprising to find vapour-punting IPOs taking advantage of the new environment. it will all end very, very badly.

EXPOSED: bizarre quantum sibling LOVE TRIANGLE

emmanuel goldstein

it's many worlds, innit

the moment of entanglement is the branch point - one for each quantum outcome. the randomly selected experiment determines which branch is observed. the entangled entities don't need to communicate with each other.

Does Apple make you puke? Take this iOS 7.0.3 update with your tablets

emmanuel goldstein

Re: @ eSeM - Another bug fix ....

"You're kidding, right?

I'm, have it known, not an Apple fan. Not at all. But that doesn't stop me from applauding a company for listening to customer complaints and doing something about it.

How can that be wrong?

They were a lot faster than Microsoft, who took quite a while to give people their start button back when the complaints about Modern/ Metro/ THD* started rolling in.

And Canonical doesn't listen to their customers at all, as it seems. Lucky for me, as I happen to like Unity, but a bother to a lot of other users who left and got all Minty and such. But then, they don't ask for your money, so let's cut some slack there and just get something else if you don't like it.

So, dissing Apple for fixes and changes that users want? No, no and no. You should praise them for it!

And that's from an almost fanatic non-fanboi."
