And then the system of mass information became self aware

It knew all our sins,all our little secrets and it knew how to defend itself from us.Darwin was proved right yet again as evolution made another step away from the carbon based life form.

All done by the insertion of a few lines of code

See the Iraq war did teach them something.This is just a prelude the U.S. are going to trial the system taking over Canada by virtually moving its borders upwards and go on from there.Thus in one stroke eliminating the need to send out an expensive invasion force to the country of their choice.

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?

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?
