Arachnoid

Once again humans contaminating nature

So these Bees are being released into an area already stabalised and popualted by nature to its best extent allowing for human pollution and excess for taking over naturally evolving areas. What effect will they have on the already established wildlife?

Good hacker uses vid vulns to spy on Quebec Liberal Party meetings

Arachnoid

its not the suppliers fault

As many reading this will know its not the suppliers fault if you fail to secure the system by changing the default password, only if there is an insecure firmware installed and even then Ive yet to see anyone prosecuted.

Simple security if its not in use turn it off at the mains.

Stop resetting your passwords, says UK govt's spy network

Arachnoid

All very nice havin 2FA and password mangers till your secondary device or software stops working then what you stuffed.

Rather than making employees comply with company policy regarding accessing equipment a much easier solution,we had a 2FA software fitted to the euipment log in screen.The problem was the engineers who needed to access said equipment sometimes have problems getting the 2FA software runiing to generate a password so couldnt fix any issues until that was working.It got so bad some of the 2FA systems were disabled.

Good work on killing any ISIS little fuclktards be they male or female and abroad or at home.My main concern is the UKs ability to actually obtain and accurately verify the right information regarding potential enemy's without the help of third party's with their own hidden agenda,

ECU

The key doesnt engage the starter or turn of the engine off as per older conventional vehicles it sends a command to the ECU to run a program which then performs these tasks, ergo any corruption of the program and it just fails to do as commanded.

I think we need to enable the three laws of robotics on all future production.....

Re: So what happens

Thats fine for a large manufacturer with a even larger budget but it would kill smaller manufacturers and as the vehicle ages [ala SAAB ] who then provides the now defunct system upgrade to a propriotory system that may be under someone eleses copyrights?

To put a different analogy how long realisticly should Apple provide software support for the iPad One five years,ten years,fifteen years?

So what happens

When these faulty vehicles are beyond warrenty and the manufacturer requires either a disproportionate amount of money for a patch or even declies an upgrade path [al la Windows XP] .Are there to be thousands of vehicles just abandoned by the side of the road?

You can read the contacless card from meters away just becasue you scrap it across the reciver doesnt mean its not possible.Secondly RFID blockers need earthing to work effectivly so unless your dangling a cable to the ground from your pocket they are a waste of money.

No mention of the Health risks!

Theres many a webpage and video dedicated to the possible radiation health risks assosiated with the devices fitted in the likes of the US so Im staying well away from them.

Oh and if specuation is true these devices will eventually enable muli tarrif prices i.e. high rates during peak times.

Stella Rimington.......

Quite clearly stated in her bio of her post as the spy industry head spook that they [the spies] did not blow with the wind of elected political parties.They even kept information back from the leaders of the time if it was deemed not to be of relavence to the partys stance.

So in effect they seem to act autonomously not at the whim of the leading party nor it seems under much of its control either.

Hide the HUD, say boffins, they're bad for driver safety

Arachnoid

Re Bad exmaple

Yes in that something that is not familiar needs more use of section of the brain used for learning which is slower and ergo more time to resolve the problem.Whereas an experienced driver looking at something familiar like the speed displayed be it via dial or on a heads up display uses preconfigured brain cells in a different part of the brain which do not tax the individual as much.
