Re: Robot on robot crime is now a thing...
I think the robot was just trying to get out of working CES.

China is not communist. You don't have communist billionaires.
You think the US is not hacking every one, and Trumps buddies in Russia are hacking everyone. Don't act like it's only China. You think the US can't hack into cisco stuff?
If I was going to gripe about China it would be their payday loans to developing countries.
But Huawei is not China, it's the natural result of outsourcing to China. Why should they make the stuff for peanuts and let Apple make all the profit? They can make their own stuff and take all the money. So now we have the Huawei P20 and other companies like Oneplus starting to sell their own stuff. It's like Japan and TVs in the 70's
US companies that boosted their profits by outsourcing now fear they are going to be the next RCA.
I've received two blackmail spams (pay or we send your web cam porn to all your contacts) using info on there.
It's the junk email and password I used when a site requires you create an account to download an update. I don't know who leaked it and don't much care, that's why I used a junk email forwarder. As a bonus it was forged to look like it came from that address.
"To be fair I don't think you'd find many people willing to defend the particular leader he was mocking, especially in hindsight."
The key word there is hindsight. If you look at 1940 you would be surprised at the support. Look at some of the stuff coming out of America First at the time for instants. There were a lot of people who thought he was on the right track. The "alt right" of the time was alive and well much like today and that movie pissed off a lot of people.
They weren't "socialism or communism". No "real" required. The problem with communism is it's unstable because there is nothing to stop one guy from taking all the cookies at which point it is no longer communist. Libertarians have the same problem, everyone is supposed to be free but it applauds taking all the cookies as a sign of success and you are back to your dystopian wonderland.
No diving computer? I used this + a dive watch, depth gauge, tank pressure gauge. And a log book so someone could figure out how I screwed up if I got bent.
So you had to know your maximum depth before you got wet, and had to be conservative on your bottom time (or crazy).
"So what do you think Logitech's legal position would be if it it continued to allow the undocumented API interface to continue in the light of the security concerns it has discovered? They would be royally screwed"
What are you talking about, there are thousands of things like wifi routers and cable modems with known holes you can drive a bus through that don't get a patch because they are a year old and and the new model is out. It's only that they want to keep selling the same one.
"Musician could not write music down, for fear someone would use it at their own advantage."
LOL sure. Lucky there was no one who could transcribe music by ear way back then.
Then there are all those people who "work for hire" and have no rights, it all belongs to the boss. Even after you are long dead.
You are going to compare people suffering a slow death from Asbestos to Sony being upset that someone uploaded a video of their kid dancing to some pop song on the radio?
Like maybe what people are calling a loop hole was the intended way it should work even if corporations would like 100% control.
Sales and marketing were competing for who had the newest laptop, by breaking there almost new laptop.
New policy: You get a loaner while your laptop is repaired (it had duct tape holding the battery in).
New laptops go to the person with the oldest laptop, no exceptions.
Funny, no more broken laptops.
