"Chicks-hoo-loob" works, tho. Just don't correct the spelling
And full employment for the Orc's flocking to clacks as a trade.
"Not impressed ...with the FTC or FCC when it comes to protecting consumers."
THAT is another agency entirely. http://www.usa.gov/topics/consumer.shtml
And good luck.
With invisible ink in hidden inkwells.
"How long is a cubit, Lord?"
Just a flesh would ma'am.
It's not Dick Tracy; worse, it's Fearless Fosdick!
And making no bones about it!
I don't have to worry about your taxes, but I wonder about a property tax not actually levied on property' I really do.
And I really miss the BBC on shortwave.
Cutting a stick to throw for your dog's enjoyment is ALSO patented:
To copy a Chinese euphemism, it sounds more like more like "back orifice". At a local Best Buy (tm) store the contract fixer-uppers (The Geek Squad --also tm) is going through Lenovo's removing (one hopes) the exploit. Good luck.
... this is the sort of access (AND source code, please) the PRC government is now insisting American manufacturers provide for products sold there? Or that many if not most of those "American" products (and parts for all the rest) sold ** outside** the PRC are probably made in the factories that will do the dirty-work?
But seeing what that lot will do unbribed ...
100 mW? That's not a pointer, it's laser knife!
That's all right, then, and thanks. I'll avoid putting one next to *my* radio antennas.
At least THAT one should be RF-quiet enough to put amongst the radio antennas.
Limited to takedowns; isn't this an invitation to copyright violators, an essentially no-penalty way to make Mickey (among other rats) public domain?
I've brought my own popcorn.
Medi-evil, perhaps; [ ]irds in a Guilded cage.
Yes; Three Y's Men.
... my provider to lower my bills?
Heh. Silly me. But it's still lower than my 1984 Compu$erve $300/mo limit, 300 baud dialup with by the minute connection charges.
And whenever I miss the ASCII Internet (I do, too) I remember that.
That's what it is.
Well, no. They COULD -- but when firefighters, medical personnel and LE can't reach each other inside over their trunked or LTE systems -- shielding,remember? -- safety is a very large victim. I suspect occupants and convention goers etc whose cellular service is cut off would be miffed, too, not good for business.
In any event, access to law-enforcement and public safety communications has become part of the US National Fire Code and many localities have made it part of their building codes as well. Given the multiplicity of frequencies used and fast changing technologies, a simple Faraday Cage is pretty much ruled out. See links below.
I'm calling my Congressman; we gotta outlaw perambulators.
Common vampire? HOW common? Inquiring necks want to know.
Make mine A Positive.
I've been to Pearl Harbor. If one stands where he can watch Pearl Harbor, it's unlikely he'll be able to immediately after watch Gigli, unless he's taken along someone of that name -- and then he could watch both at the same time.
Just a good [enough],cheap [enough] wearable display would sell to photographers using digital cameras. Bluetooth viewers, anyone?
One approach used by insurgents -- and terrorists -- is to copy what government does, turning people against their own governments even if those really are defending them. Considering how many exploits and scripts are already running around wild, it seems additional surveillance can create an excess of less (shall we say) benign intrusions. There's no good way the average person can say who's taking his picture, writing down his licence number, reading his email or scanning his HDD when government insists on doing all of those and says he can't make it known or do anything to stop it.
And here's your Thruppence. Yeah; I was there, when.
Looks like resonance. Phonons or surface wave.
30-year old software still runs in many of the world's organisations today, and there's absolutely no reason to expect the same won't be true 30 years from now.
Want a 95 install? Heh.
Microswat apparently wants to churn hardware sales, producing operating systems that -- if security fixes were treated the same as auto safety -- cannot run on existing and still productive hardware, refusing to repair deficiencies in their own products that result in what would be massive recalls in the auto business (who can't squirt repairs down a link).
I worked in Avionics in the Army from1964-1980, and some of the equipment I worked with in Vietnam could still be seen in Active Duty Air Force transports in 1990; one enterprising person in Massachusetts, noting that test standards called out a specific instrument, bought the name and rights to build a vacuum tube (valve, to you blokes) Grid Dip Meter first sold in 1949. (http://www.isquare.com/millen/eqpicts/90651.html), much more recently, I worked in the digital loop carrier equipment business, where we made and sold equipment to telco's who expected FIFTY years of service and support. Military electronics, in a 2006--2011 job, had a still going and gegantic (sp) employer, as parts became EOL and unavailable, redesigning equipment first fielded in in the 1970's.
It seems to me that if the concept of implied warranty has any meaning, it applies to legacy products rendered unsafe to use not by acts by the users, but because of manufacturer oversights and omissions, manufacturers who, though GLAD to sell a lot if it, didn't want to fix teir errors after years of even decades while those who'd bought them could and were still being harmed as the mistakes became evident.
It could be worse; an OS update might some day come without warning (they've stopped giving most of us warnings) and a six day count-down to wiping it. Are they selling us ransomware? Not yet, but... there's money in it.
Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.
Are you trying to"catch up" to the USA?
Some comments I've heard from firefighters and the like speak to not being able to call the one behind you to turn around and run -- or for someone else to call you. No direct comms.
... licentious. Go, and sin no more.
USB tethers should still work. Until they set up their own fake cellular sites; THERE'S a nice man-in-the-middle.
Got info? All of your bits are belong to us.
I want UHD or more for my COMPUTER. Scrw television; I'm editing digital images. 19 inches, please. (Heh; quantum dot pixels.)
Calling on the Trained Bands?
"... the Obama administration report showed that federal government agencies spent $10 billion on information security. The biggest culprits, experts say, are human error and a patchwork of different systems. Billions of dollars in security can't stop an employee from clicking a malicious link."
Note also, that it's easier to buy, bribe, blackmail (e.g.: honeypot) convince or turn an operator than electronically intercept his work. Nothing fancy about the Snowden etc capers.
then needs must one despair; for all the good they do, no one will read them, there.
On the FCC's BPL Rulemaking (PLC for English speakers) my comments were backed up with reference to good data and a certain amount of what I thought was persuasive logic. Wasted effort; the Commission having seen the dagger readied to plunge into its budget in Congress, had orders from a higher authority; money.

I used to work on technological security. IMO the gorilla in the room is that it's cheaper -- and (Snowden, anyone?) to just stir up (or buy) a user. Road rage or Roid rage; pick one.
This must be a Mcirosfot Update. Oh, it wasn't? Are you SURE?
In 1963 some of my colleagues in green decided to make shooting blanks on manoeuvers more fun by tying the end of a cleaning rod into the flash suppressors of their M-14's with alumin[i]um wire from a box of C-rations. Full auto, for a while, then the wire broke and the cleaning rod tip got stuck into a tree somewhere. As far as I know, nobody was wounded or killed thereby -- but some got angry after a vehicle accident and apparently managed flesh wounds with pine needles down the bore. The exercise (look up Swift Strike 3) was suspended a day or so to let tempers cool.
Be careful what you ask for, etc.
