"Surging Dollar Value"

No. There seems to be a bizarro trend to produce devices that are high-tech and extremely
gaia-rapingcapital intensive but then avoid going the last mile so that an awkward contraption can be manually assembled with bits of 100% natural products by low-skilled but non-alienated workers.
I don't know why either, but there you are.
Happens all day, every day in the carpeted halls of management.

(robocontroller): "This pass is not acceptable, dear [visitor]. Failure to comply with Google House rules will mean you get fully doxed and your search history goes to pastebin. Please comply with the Google House rules within 10 seconds. Nine... eight... "
(sweating journo shows original pass)
"seven ... six ..."
(google engineer) "Err.... I think we might have a problem here...."
I would hate to see what the offspring of psychotic bureaucrats and Google efficiency, coupled to the FEMA trailers, would look like.
And thats your defense for publishing it?
Hey, Obama, don't you have a snooper's charter to push through Congress ?

Yah no, your worldview is at loggerheads with itself.
You forgot: sound
And as usual, a lady in red was involved in the compromise.
It's WASPish suburban dinotopia!
So which is the single non-ignored one?
(had to be said)
Better shut up.
Steve Jobs is a "marketing person" as hard as they come. The producer was The Other Steve. Maybe Jobs' bigger-than-others' sociopathy made him a winner.
That was probably a question from "Jeopardy"
"as far as reasonably practical" - Who gets to define "reasonably"? The shareholders?
I'm sorry, shareholder companies don't work that way.
It's the safety assurance people. Who put up a recommendation to the board. Who then decides.Which then goes into the minutes. If the regulator is ok with that, cool.
That sounds like no increase, ie continue to under-invest.
Who gets to define "under-invest"? Retards in forums?
I'd prefer if safety in the air wasn't a "for profit" activity
Enjoy your soviet-era bare-knuckles flights.
You seem to follow the low-brow "Marxist" view of what shareholding is all about and how investment works.
Please upgrade to IQ 75.
Also, saying that "investment was not as high as expected" could just mean that someone decided that things were good enough and didn't want to go for gold-plating or that traction could not be achieved because projects went slower than expected. Simples.
can't figure out how to move an excess of CO2 and heat some place less harmful
Or they could just simply widen the planet's orbit.
Is that a nuclear fireball over the Tomorrowland Tower?
It must be a practical joke, like the "axle-mounted rotative device to support linear movement of goods" patent (or whatever it was called) to just troll the USPTO for the doofus club it is.
They also work differently.
You wear tin foil hat => You get carried off
You don't wear sheeple hat => You get carried off
Would that be a no-win, no-fee grue?
Only tard who haven't realized that taxes ARE exploitation are paying attention to those kinds of things.
They are just selling "coffee", not droning people with
big government bucks money allocated from taxpayers by do-gooder liberventionists, FFS!

The little lamb is named Birke, and is known to have a fleece as white as precipitation in the form of flakes of crystalline ice.
Wouldn't she be called Ammonia, then?
And how are you going to make a penalty big enough to make big medical companies actually pay attention without the risk of collateral damage? And since the medical profession is about saving lives, that collateral damage can turn deadly.
The US market in healthcare is totally dysfunctional anyway and caught in the vice of crazy-arse regulation, and stalking no-win no-fee lawyers while nepostistic payouts and subsidies are guaranteed to connected players via RetardoCare all the while "progressives" are baying for "cheap healthcare" at "no cost". A bit of collateral damage might be exactly what the doctor ordered to properly euthanize the whole festering heap.
The U.S. was naïve and foolish to ever get in bed with the unscrupulous Russian government.
Senator McCain, sir! Don't you have a rabid attack dog speech to prepare on Ukraine? Stop posting here. There's people to save and countries to bomb!
"ULA is honored to launch this unique spacecraft for the U.S Air Force. Congratulations to the Air Force and all of our mission partners on today's successful launch! The seamless integration between the Air Force, Boeing, and the entire mission team culminated in today's successful launch of the AFSPC-5 mission."
Goddammit, son! Did you tune into Radio Soviet Corporate America again? Turn that shit off!
...unless I get GERTY to manage my house.
It isn't just children, adults also go into a comatose state and become unresponsive to locally generated input.
I have also reflected on bringing cattle prods to the synchronization meetings as people not currently "on air" are prodding the portable bullshit for "urgent mails" or repeatedly tapping the screen because there is some game on for which you have to respond in realtime to other players (something invented by the Google cancer, I hear). It's like something out of a comedy show.
Underage drinking sex? A new activity?

I thought the whole thing about babies brains was that it was a shedload of computing power dedicated to processing data?
Exactly. There are two things in this universe: Bulk matter and structures able to process data.
Seriously, I hope his statement was marketing material by Baidu and he just read it off.
Content compression: "I love Baidu"
"[We must not] allow a means of communications which it simply isn't possible to read"
For starters, politicians would have to shut up talking utter bollocks.
It's not going to happen.
But consider that they didn't call in an air strike.
"Diary strike on my position!"
2262 cattle-caused injuries were reported in NZ. Even sheep caused 1500 or so injuries
Statistics don't mean anything if no context is given though.
So.... how many of the bluejackets are recycled veterans of the "Mission Accomplished" wars?
Didn't we have that discussion back before Y2K?
Why connect everything to everythimg else in such a dangerous way? It is insane!
Can you explain why you believe any of this?
Do you also believe no planes rammed the WTC?
Pretty much this. The design criteria that go into a home router with multimedia storage (cheap and nasty and everything on the same cable) are NOT the same as those that go into a plane (unless there is a war on and most of the capital infrastructure can no longer deliver), even if people get that impression from watching too much Navy CSI or whether crud fills the screens these days.
Think about O rings, and Feynman, and pressure to deliver on time and on budget. At any cost.
If you really want to make a good point, it helps to actually know the story. "Pressure to deliver on time and on budget at any cost" had nought to do with the Challenger Launch Disaster except in hindsight. It was a problem of creeping, uncorrected biases of the risk perception. These are very hard to prevent.

I do think we might agree on one point: if people can't determine after reading several articles at Ars Technica and The Register whether the two systems are even *connected* or not, then either the articles are weakly researched, or such essential details are kept under wraps -- quite possibly both.
It is a good question but I can at least say that there are people thinking about the security implications at aerospace companies and making doubly sure that data goes only one way. Sure there may be undiscovered problems, but SOHO routers these ain't.
