That's awful!...and the best of bunch so far! To you --->
"Those who oppose net neutrality rules often make the mistake of suggesting that market competition will limit discriminatory conduct and push ISPs to offer consumers better service. But that argument only makes sense if there is underlying market competition to begin with. Otherwise, it’s like saying your dog will protect your house when you don’t own a dog."
Truer words...and from a US Gub'mint bureaucrat, to boot!
Still, the severity of the exploit needs to be kept in perspective. Why not take a moment to consider the attack vectors and see if it is really a threat to you, and if you can do anything to minimize it, before giving the "abandon ship" order?
Updraft102, your rationalization strikes me along the lines of, "If you have nothing to hide, you have noting to fear."
If it's there, it's a threat. Period. It may not be an easy-to-operate threat, but it's still a threat.
Uhh...that should read: Don't buy their effing stock!
..that Starboard, or any other vulture capitalist/activist divestor/Hedge-fund mangler must buy Mellanox (or any body else's) stock? You don't like how the company is managing its business? Don't but their effing stock!
It really is that simple.
The CCTV cameras aren't joined together and operating to map your path across this Green and Pleasant Land.

Where is the market for your goods and services when nobody has the money to buy them?
That is the obvious question nobody in MBA-land has the balls to ask, much less answer.
We will soon be ruled by incompetant A.I. (if not already)
On its website, the company downplays the value of such information by referring to it as "mobile location exhaust data," as if it were an unwanted waste product.
Of course, one must call bullshit. If it were a "waste product" they couldn't make any money on it, and would therefore not waste precious terabytes storing it, now would they?
(Icon is the nearest approximation of "liar-liar-pants-on-fire")
So how long before the current US "administration" requires them?
But back to the update - it also changes the background of the Cortana search box from grey to white.
Yes...'cuz in the ADHD-addled minds of the Millennials currently "working" in Micros~1's Marketing Dept. the world must be separated into two groups: Black, and White.
Oh, I thought AR was Alternative Reality

Sorry! Sometimes I just can't help myself...
Microsoft seems to have stopped testing its Windows updates and relies on their users to do the work now...
Now?!? Thus has it ever been!
[It's been] 54 days since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico," she tweeted this morning. "Forty per cent of the cell sites remain out of service. This is an unprecedented loss of communications. It deserves an unprecedented response from the FCC. But to date no hearings, no report, no date by which service will be fully restored."
For reasons I will likely never understand, that last sentence took me back to a time when, as a DJ on a lightly-formatted rock station in the 70's that was being slowly strangled by this new-fangled Formatting sensation, I recall the dismissive sentence our newly brainwashed Program Manager would lay on us when we wanted to play what is nowadays referred to as a "Deep Track". That sentence:
"Too Long, Too Down, No Play!"
I suspect that dismissive sentence has been resurrected and updated within the halls of the New Republican Administration, where the Program Manager-in-Chief would gleefully repeat:
"Too Small, Too Brown, No Way!"
(Of course, there may be other variants that apply here, too....)
Am I correct in thinking ...
We are watching the ramblings of a man in the early stages of senility.
And in the final stages of stupidity.
It seems that no one can agree: even the US Department of Justice, which has represented the short messages from his @realDonaldTrump account as "official statements" in one lawsuit and "personal use of social media" in another.
This statement would, at first blush, indicate a severe personality disorder in the Justice Dept. (and considering the suddenly memory-impaired wank who's putatively running the place currently, that would be a difficult assertion to refute). But really, folks, this is nothing but latter-day Republicanism: make any statement, take any position that is politically convenient at the time. If it happens to be diametrically opposed to the position you took just 15 minutes ago, no problem; simply stick you fingers in your ears and yell, loudly, "LA! LA! LA! LA! LA! CLINTON!!"
No, Truckle, it doesn't "give me just what I asked for" If it did, I'd have bought one.
Face recognition...what could possibly go wrong...go wrong...go wrong...go....
You know, I originally misread your handle as "unwarranted trumphalism". Now reading your posts, I'm pretty sure I didn't misread it after all.
I await the SEC's investigation.
Don't hold your breath. As I noted earlier in this forum, have you noticed who's running the Justice Dept. nowadays?
But because of the SEC rules such information would've been easy to deduce, meaning if something really was shady, why haven't criminal charges already been bright forth?
Have you noticed whose running the Justice Dept. nowadays?
Please add Trump to the wish list of sole purveyors of 'information' along with those other purveyors of (iron) fairy stories.
We could go even further and block Drumpf as an ersatz US president.
No one said that the bean counters at $FATASS_CORP are the sharpest tacks in the box
So why has the Trump Administration decided to back track? Is it an ideological hatred of any federally imposed rules at all? Is it another sign of President Trump's weird drive to unravel everything done by his predecessor? No, it appears as though it is good old-fashioned corporate greed.
Well, there's that...but it doesn't cover for the fact that Herr Drumpf is a racist fuck, and cannot countenance the possibility that the black guy is better than he is at...well, pretty much everything, but especially at simply running things.

Uhhh, no. That would be the Stealer's Wheel song, "Stuck In The Middle With You".
If Perl is so bad, then why did MS use so many concepts of it within PowerShell ?
Because it didn't' know not to?

I'm sure you think it is reasonable to delete election data when no physical copy exists.
Only when his guy wins. When the Other Guy wins, John's all for keeping the records <ad infinitun</i>, and opening at least 8 serial "investigations" as to how it was the election records disappeared.
With regards to the following:
But emails released this week following a Freedom of Information Act request reveal that technicians at the election center deleted the server's data on July 7 – just days after the lawsuit was filed.

I suppose you don't work an Uber, then?
“I’m The Leader of the Gang (I am)” is a magnificent song, chant, anthem.
I always thought that was "I'm Henry the Eighth, I am" brought to us by Herman's Hermits as part of the British Invasion of the 60's. (With "Henry" pronounced more like "enery" in whatever local dialect that was...)
Ooooh, so that's what it is, then? Can't possibly be about a naked monitization grab because it's an ecosystem!
Boy, you fanbois are gullible lot, aren't you?

Regardless of your post, I upvoted you simply because of your handle.
And your post....
If it works, don't fix it!
So "Dave" had to go and update to the latest shiny shiny, chose to configure it to suit his needs (not that of the Corporation), and Lo! he was rewarded by converting his kit to a piece of adobe (not Adobe).
I don't claim to know "Dave" or what motivated him to update both his speakers and his control app. But I suspect it wasn't because the existing kit wasn't working, or wasn't working acceptably, but because he wanted all the latest shiny, whatever it was. And he got bitten by the First Rule.
I guess "Dave" isn't old enough to have been bitten, and bitten, and bitten again by trying to keep on the bleedin' edge of Micros~1 stuff back in the 80's (and 90's and ...).
"Dave"! See the First Rule above! Live by it, and you will be a happier man!
Doubt Herr Drumpf would do that; it would jeopardize is bromance with Bibi.
...of the old MAD magazine "Spy-vs-Spy" cartoon feature....
It'd be funny if it weren't so serious.
A group of technology venture capitalists are suing the US government for, effectively, preventing them from investing in startups due to immigration red tape.
That old red herring again? Perhaps these douchebags-in-a-can might just have to get over themselves and realize that there are plenty enough domestic software engineers of sufficient quality to warrant having money thrown at them.
(Of course, said douchebags may have to throw a bit more money at them since US SW engineers won't work for the slave wages that an indentured H-1B would...but fuck them! Cost of doing business and all the Randian claptrap...)
Mostly North Koreans, I wot...

Amen to that. You guys are the Bomb!
However, so far the current administration has shown little interest in investigating Russian hacking claims [...]
Well, Duh!, considering "the current administration" was the primary benefactor from such hacking. Does anybody in the world still believe in the fairy tale that the US political system is nothing but a fetid pool of self-serving, self-dealing corruption?
Things really haven't changed much from the '60's, have they....
...but Herr Lügenführer's lists remain remarkably untouched...
Look, no matter how hard you try, you are not nor, nor will you ever be, amanfrommars1
Or the dumbest thing posted on this site since the last screed from Bombastic Bob.
Meanwhile, on NASA's own website, you can find data showing human civilization has likely had a profound effect on our world's climate.
Well, you don't have to worry about that little detail. Like all of der Lügenführer's minions, he'll make sure that any reference to real facts disappear from the face of the website (being, of course, blissfully unaware that nothing ever really disappears from the Interwebs...)
Well, it's all going to be academic soon, as soon as Trump manages to read the label next to the red button marked "RED BUTTON".
He won't read it...he'll have someone read it to him.
Chump...er...Trump caught lying. Again.
And in other news, Sun slated to come up in the east again tomorrow.
