Do you actually believe yourself what you wrote there?
It prevents healthy competition in the market which might artificially inflate prices for consumers, so it's not just the billion dollar companies that lose
"And there is the answer to the question - would it really be so bad if the UK Gov (and now the EU and US it seems) could instantly backdoor into any secure communication taking place...."
Yes. Next question?
Any software (trojan or other) can easily re-enable your webcam and send as much video as it wants. Putting something in front of the lens removes that possibility.
The problem usually isn't with ISP's blocking traffic from competitors, but rather that they say "pay us extra for your traffic or we will throttle your traffic to 20KB/s". When you're a small startup, that becomes a major problem.
Telling everyone to "just use Amazon and you will be fine" is not a solution.
This has been debunked so many times it's not even funny
"But the list of these countries wasn't put together by Trump or Pence, it was Obama's administration that came up with the list."
I seriously don't understand the hate against Wesley Crusher. He might not have been the best character in Star Trek, but I don't find it deserving all the hate.
Oh, and Wil Wheaton seems like an truly good guy, so I personally think this honor was deserved.
Why? Do you have any vested interest in Qualcomm being able to gouge their customers, and by extension us consumers?
Yeltsin was nowhere near as bad as Trump gears up to become...
He was in the UK when he commited the crime, so the act was commited in the UK.
If I remember correctly, it is a crime punishable by prison time to dishonor the king of the Philipines. Would you want to be extradited there and face prison time if you ever wrote something negative about him, even if you had never been there?
Harman does A LOT more than "headrest screens". I did a quick Google search, and they own JBL, Harman Kardon, Mark Levinson, AKG, Lexicon, Infinity and Revel, and deliver products ranging from professional audio production to cinemas, high end hi-fi and car stereos.
How is the quality of their computers these days? They started out by being good and cheap, so I bought a few of their laptops until the quality suddenly tanked and your best bet was that it lasted until the day after the warranty expired. After that I went mostly with Asus and Lenovo and have been mostly happy with their quality.
So is Acer good enough these days to give them another chance?
Eggs can probably take more than a non-SSD spinning, though
Weak trolling. Must try harder.
I would go for the microtrump, since no-one else would ever manage to reach 1 otherwise.
What happens the day China takes a leaf out of USA's playbook and demands that the Chinese subsidiary of Boeing gives them information located at the US office of Boeing? Would USA still think this is a good idea?
I wasn't planning on downvoting you, and I wasn't one of the original ones, but "seems it attracts only idiots" deserve two.
Not even close to that...
I wish I could downvote you more than once
I hope you're being sarcastic here
Have you tried XBMC? It works wonders on my Raspberry Pi's
We should, but what does that have to do with this story?
If by decision processing you mean the fleshy bits inside, then maybe you are right. If the cars were going 60mph, the humans inside wouldn't have time to react if the car did something stupid.
What kind of car models would that be...?
Mine works quite perfectly in all weather conditions so far. I haven't tried in a blizzard (yet), but I will probably not use cruise control in those conditions anyways.
It's swedish for "sharp"
I might actually buy one of these, if the price isn't horrible and if it supports memory cards.
Nope, then they'll blame piracy.
You could always get a Raspberry Pi for a fraction of the price, fill up a thumb drive with game files and plugging in a suitable controller.
There are premade SD card images for the purpose.
I'm guessing longer average driving distances (so less short runs, and having the engine run at operating termperature for longer periods) and a lot less salt on the roads (do Australia ever salt roads?) makes cars last longer
I wonder if this applies to the Note 4 as well, since they are pretty similar spec-wise.
Their memory cards (SD cards, etc) are truly excellent
Hah, this must be a poor attempt at an april fools joke.
Almost as credible as the Fukushima article.
That Flip actually looks quite promising, if it's possible to install a regular desktop linux on it.
There might be a lot more to this story than is told in this article. At least one of the letters he sent to Google was written by the MPAA (link NY Times), and he has admitted to having sent/received nearly 900 emails with the MPAA.
In addition, he is close friends with a known MPAA lobbyist (Mike Moore).
Google might be in the wrong here, but I don't really think Hood is in the right either.
It's interesting how music piracy in Norway was pretty much eradicated when we actually was able to listen to music legally for a reasonable sum of money.
When the only alternative was buying stuff on CD, piracy was pretty common.
Perhaps the movie studios should reconsider their options?
That almost made sense...
" If customers wish to use another card, they can photograph the card with the phone’s camera."
Great, but I hope there are some additional steps to it, like Paypal or Steam does it (having a tiny amount drawn from the card, which you need to verify by entering the exact amount or a code from the bank statement).
I guess there are massive differences between different markets here.
As a Norwegian, a base level 1-series or A class isn't very much more expensive than a comparable-size car from many other makers, however they do come with significantly less equipment for the price.
A base 1-series or A class here costs around the same as a Golf.
What do you call the 1-series and A Class? I would call them entry level.
Also, neither the 3-series or C Class is really that expensive if you go for a lesser equipped model, although other brands will give a lot more equipment for your money.
When it comes to crypto you want it to be open, tried, and tested, and based on known standards.
I don't see why roaming should be a huge problem? It's already in place for foreign users, so the technical aspects are already in place.
I also don't see why it should be an economic problem? This way operators can choose whether to pay for their own sites or rent capacity from their competitors. It should even make it economically feasible to build more sites, since that means competitors will probably have to rent capacity and help pay for the site.
However, this all means fairer competition between operators, so I can see why the operators are against it.
Or you could ask the studios that question. Netflix doesn't decide what they are allowed to show.
US has the best justice money can buy.
(If you don't have money, you can't have any)
systemd'oh! DNS lib underscore bug bites everyone's favorite init tool, blanks Netflix
