Sounds like the perfect computer for the NSA.

We need those tinfoil hats more than ever.
It shouldn't be hard to find a billion scrapped mobile gadgets. Spend the money figuring out how to hook them together. (Where's my phone?)
"...and the only way out is to wipe it and start over..."
Wait a minute, the beaver is Canada's national animal.
Why didn't the Chinese use their own?
I am waiting....
I am waiting for Windows 10 Legacy Edition, which should look, feel and work just like Windows 7. (But I'm not holding my breath.)
Funny how when the problem is, for example, Android, security updates seldom or never get distributed and applied, but when money is flying out the window.....
Apple can enforce or ignore its rules as it wishes, whatever is in its best interest.
" two months of complimentary access to Adobe Premiere Pro CC "
Then it's $20 or $50 per month after (depending on what you subscribe to). No thanks.
Ought to stay home...
.... where Putin will give them a medal for service to the state, instead of traveling to the west where they are arrested.
IBM should task Watson with the job of fixing the company.
Time to cut the cord and move to the wilderness.
Re: Who better?
Even with a workable micropayment system, what's to stop them from whoring your personal information anyway? Who trusts them?
Now Ikea has to change its name to iKea.
Senior bot to junior bot: "Go fly a kite."
Junior bot to senior bot: "Jump off that cliff over there."
Senior bot to junior bot: "No dinner for you. Go to your room."
Junior bot: short circuits.
"pointless gadgets that purport to solve problems from which nobody suffers"
Today's technology, solutions without problems. Paradoxically it has produced large numbers of billionaires.
Yes we'll know more about cat behavior than we ever could imagine.
To me this is characteristic of poorly written software. Error exception handling is hard. Many developers are in a hurry to code the main function and leave error handling to later, or never. I have seen this message so many times, it's a slap in the user's face. As a developer it makes me ashamed. /rant
"Two reported about 32 per cent less usage than actually occurred."
I would keep quiet about that.
The lawyers did really well.
"...things always go wrong..."
Are you sure that it's Facebook's AI, or just Zuck at the helm?
Perhaps all the out-of-work drivers can find a useful occupation picking up the pieces from the wrecked AI vehicles littering the road.
Trump did promise to put America back to work - writing reports.
Re: Treasonous Squirrels
Don't you know, they have an entire wing at Guantanamo Bay for squirrels that caused acts of sabotage (and survived). :)
My toilet at home has one control on it - flush! The rest is nice but not necessary for the purpose. What they need for foreigners/ignoramuses is one icon that looks like a flush lever, perhaps larger than the rest, so we know exactly what to do and avoid unintended consequences.
Re: Well done SpaceX
FB wants me to log in or sign up .... it's to youtube for me. Blow up, FB.
Re: "...just weighed them..."
Thank god Canada did away with pennies some time ago. Weren't worth the trouble to pick one up if you dropped it.
There should be a "come back home, all is forgiven" button on the remote.
"...4 million windows 10 computers..."
Oh the pain, the pain......
Windows 10 upgrade suvivor
Highlight of the year - I managed to resist Microsoft's efforts to upgrade my W7 computer, in spite of repeated efforts on their part. It was hard, and I'd like to celebrate.
So if you're a policy holder and get hacked, you get paid. What about your customers/users who actually suffer?
Now they have to send a Mission: Impossible team led by Tom Cruise to go in and destroy the sub. Maybe DT can make it into another reality TV show.
You would think that the driverless cars, going through red lights and doing other dangerous things, would eventually all get smashed up, removing them from the road. Problem solved.
"...train them as instructors ..."
Now they've learned what not to do.
Let's hope self-driving autos have more reliable sensors and software.
Re: I call bullshit.
"Really?" The world looks different when you're pissing away other people's money.
"...the situation is under control..."
Every time I ask my ISP about security issues, they give me this reply, but have no further information on the matter. Essentially a brush-off and an admission nothing is being done.
Taking nourishment in liquid form would solve one of the three problems, perhaps the most unpleasant one.
"...most dramatic weather in near-real time"
We experience the weather here in actual real time. Too often the weather forecast tells us what happened earlier. The future is a murky haze the forecasters are often unable to penetrate.
It might have been a thought to determine why relay #18 melted down, so it wouldn't happen again.
Using spinich is very clever
You don't have to worry about people/animals stealing and eating it.
Win - Win
Everpower will order the windmills from Amazon :
IOTs are polluting the internet just as we are polluting the earth.
I've had numerous logins disappear from time to time. I store all my logins in a password program so I know it's not me that forgot. It's a PITA for sure.
"How do old people navigate a brave new world that keeps getting braver and newer at an accelerated pace?"
We just ignore as much of it as possible and know it will eventually go away.
Re: They are all at it
For the sake of the environment if not customer relations they should ban devices with non-replaceable batteries.
They quit because the car needs new batteries and they cannot be replaced.
Re: Not surprising
The politicians waste/steal/misappropriate far more than the bureaucrats.
Re: Slow refresh cycle
"Stopped making them"
Still runnin' and lovin' my netbook.
What's wrong with a pencil and a piece of notepaper? The real estate agents leave a notepad at the door almost every day.
Just the cost of going around with a big stick threatening to beat up the other guy.
