It's just because Ray-Ban and Oakley went into Italian hands... because US looks interested in less and less industries. Nor they had issues when Obama favored the Chrysler-Fiat deal, or the Googlepoly...
Anyway, it's far easier to make popular proposal (but far less megacorps friendly) when you have no chance to have them approved, so your nearest lobbyist won't complain too much, and will still sign the cheques...
Dubious business practices well predates Microsoft.
And no billionaires with some pocket cash to spare?
Well, *this* would be a silicon implant...
No thank you.
Business people should watch some sci-fi, sometimes, instead of just porn.
Don't want to know what being fired means, also....
For such routes, high-speed trains are killing things with wings and jet engines - because they are cheaper and more comfortable, especially because they don't need the security of airplanes, and usually arrive right in the centre of a city, not at an airport miles away.
Tunnels are also a security nightmare - when you have to reach the location of an incident miles away inside a tunnel, and evacuate people (if they're still alive...).
I wonder how many underpaid immigrants work in the Trump "empire"....
Ironic, how money can change people....
Paint is useful because you know it is installed in each and every Windows machine, and if you need to take a screenshot and then save it - maybe cropping out useless parts, and saving it in a decent format, you know you have it available and you don't need to look for and maybe download - if you can - another simple graphic applications.
Although I know most users prefer to paste it into Word and Excel and send you a document with a single image within....
Quite common among all fraudster. It's important to avoid the victim could reason calmly. Even vacuum cleaner sellers use that...
It's easy to read it after the fact. Putting together all the pieces *before* should have been not so easy. Also you become a real target when your "operations" get bigger.
Remember you're a "consumer", no longer a "customer" or a "client"...
Just because AMD dropped the Virtual 8086 mode when the CPU is in 64 bit mode when it designed x86 64 bit extensions. It's not a Microsoft decision. You can still run DOS in a VM, without the CPU support running real mode applications while in protected mode is not so easy, trapping direct accesses to memory, I/O and interrupts is an issue.
The old WWII categorization is no longer valid today. Actual destroyers are as large as WWII "heavy cruisers" - and the difference between "destroyers" and "cruisers" becomes more and more blurred, between, for example, Arleigh-Burke "destroyers" and Ticonderoga "cruisers" the difference is very little, actually the former are more heavily armed, although shorter than the latter, and displacement is very similar.
With most expensive programs cut, larger ships were the first to suffer.
Beware of any malware named "Bismarck"....
Just remember the "strange" Courageous class ships (which included the Glorious) were nicknamed "Spurious", "Curious" and "Outrageous" beecause of, ehm, their "disruptive design"... (before they were transformed into air carriers).
Old jokers were far better at finding funny names....
Roll a couple of dice. If the number was already used, roll them again.
Ask the people who will keep a job and be paid to build it...
A dead battery? A ransomware?
If the boat is small enough, yes. If oars can't move it, they are quite useless, I'd say. Anyway, I guess the engines and other mechanical system (i.e. the helm) still have a lot of manual overrides if the automatic control systems get damaged - a ship dead in the water is a dead ship...
In Florida and California do you really need to go to a Star Wars theme park to see a woman in a small bikini??? Some people really need to turn off the PC and TV, and give a look to the world outside....
This is a case for Susan Calvin...
.... when it will enter the frame during a long exposure....
Your alternative facts? UK was offered highly advantageous conditions no other member had or has.
Don't know in other countries, but in Italy it's "to have the wife drunk and the barrel full" (which today may sound quite sexist).
I'm sure UK and EU will need an agreement about data transfer, but it's hard to believe UK will have the same influence as in the past. Especially since data regulations may be seen also as a way to have businesses move inside EU.
Have the cake and eat it? I can't see how UK could have an active role in EDPB - if it will be an EU body reserved to member states and the Commission.
I gave a look to my WSUS and can't find the updates approved, nor I have them installed, so I can't try. Probably they weren't approved before they got retired.
If the patches were delivered using WSUS, they can be removed using WSUS as well. If you let you "big fleet" get updates directly from MS, you'll need some scripts delivered through AD to remove them. If your "big fleet" is also without AD, you'll need to get back to Windows 101.
I usually used C-46 or C-60 cassettes for albums, depending on the albums length, many fit on the former (the original LP capacity was 23m per side). C-90 only for dual LP albums, cassettes I could play on a smaller hi-fi system in my room which had not an LP player.
Saw very little reason to have two different albums on the same cassette but for car or walkman use, where it saved space. Otherwise, smaller cassettes meant less wear.
... .instead of the much superior audio output of a C64....
They wanted to be the Nespresso of fruit juice, but it looks they compared coffee to oranges...
Since phones became all screen that meant less opportunities for personalization. No room for diamonds buttons and the like. The back cover offers less opportunities. Difficult to build a business on bling phones today.
Right, you're not rich and stylish enough if you can't afford an iThing. The Internet says so.
If, and only if, open access to the code meant more eyeballs - which probably is not happening for several reasons. The fact code is open access doesn't mean more and more people will read it. They could, but do they do it, really? How many get asleep, or spend time on a beach or the garden reading Kerberos code? Even most open source developers are more interested in developing new code, than reviewing old one.
You need to have specific reasons to look at code *and* spotting bugs, especially when they're not obvious. And you also need specific skills when the code and underlying requirements are complex and not so obvious. So, statistically, how many good and competent eyeballs happen to look at open source code?
Sure, sometime you may stumble upon a bug while perusing some code, but it happen less than many thinks. Most vulnerabilities today are found with different approaches, i.e. fuzzing. Reading code and understand its behaviour fully when it is executed, maybe with unexpected inputs, is not so easy.
Sure, having the code to check exactly what happens *after* helps - but Windows code is accessible - you just need to be approved. And reliable security researches have that access.
Sorry, access to the code is a necessary condition. No need for the "access" to be open to everybody, and the right to reuse the code whatever you like.
And what with would you replace it?
Also, Kerberos is in no way tied to SMB - SMB can use it just it can use any other authentication/authorization protocols - and it uses it only in an Active Directory domain because Kerberos is the protocol used by AD. Remove the domain, and SMB falls back to NTLM.
Any time you're going to use SSO in an AD domain (and not only) you're going to use Kerberos, although probably through an higher level API like GSSAPI.
Anyway, authentication/authorization may look a "simple problem", but building a strong and reliable protocol and implement it is not.
French spam probably decreased also....
Unguided rockets may make less noise than an equivalent large gun when fired and can "saturate" the target area firing many rockets quickly, which may make the target "panic", hard to emulate with older guns (newer ones have a far higher rate of fire). The sound they make on arrival may be also a bonus (like some dive bombers had devices to produce a shrieking sound).
A person I know is going to replace her desktop PC, eventually, after almost ten years. She bought a new, larger monitor a few years ago, but is replacing the PC only now because it started to fault.
She does invoicing and other tasks for her father business.
The truth is more and more people now replace PCs when they break, not because a new model offer needed features or run needed software an old model can't.
Offloading tasks to the cloud also means less need to increase local procesisng power.
On the server side, while cloud companies may be buying a lot of servers, it also means less servers sold to business - and I guess the cloud companies are far better in exploiting each server than the average business - but even the latter will use virtualization to coalesce workloads on fewer ones.
The industry must adapt to much longer replacement cycles. Or increase planned obsolescence <G>.
Windows 10 interface on both Surface and phones is far worse than the 8 one. Again, they tried to force the same interface, just the other way round this time, with a strange hybrid with tiles inside the menu, and a taskbar that is far less usable in tablet mode than swiping from the left side.
The hamburger menu in the upper left corner is quite a stupid idea from a usability perspective. It's where Windows 2.0 system menu was, but probably was the wrong place even then - that's why we got a "close" icon on the left side, instead of having to click the system menu twice. The right lower corner ellipses was better thought, as swiping from the bottom (I don't hold a tablet from the upper side).
Office has been redesigned too to be touch friendly - don't know what version you're using but 2013 and 2016 are designed for touch too - but they still lack a "touch first" interface in tablet mode.
The device is very nice - the issue was and is pointy haired bosses who believe there should be the same UI regardless of the human interface devices used.
There's no way a touch UI can be the same of a keyboard and mouse one. "Metro" works well when you use a Surface in tablet mode, but gets in the way when you use it in laptop mode. OS and applications should become smart enough to change UI depending on the mode, and it wouldn't be very difficult to achieve it.
For example Outlook could switch to a simpler, touch oriented interface when in tablet mode and you're simply reading emails (and maybe just writing a quick response), and switch to the more complex "desktop" one when a keyboard has been attached to write more complex emails. I understand it requires more code, but that's the only right way.
The stubbornness of designers and executives on inflicting the same UI on users regardless of the context is hard to understand.
Oh well, even web sites became just a waste of screen space since designers decided to force mobes oriented ones on every user, with just big images and no information...
The Surface 2 Pro can be easily packed into a lot of photo bags which don't accept a 12" one. In the field, and when traveling, the size is much more comfortable, and the screen is not really "too small" unless you need to work on large spreadsheets... it was the perfect replacement, and much more powerful, for netbooks, something you can always carry around.
An today, most trains used for long travels have power plugs available (airplanes as well).
Yes, but not the same airspace at the same time, because that's just stupid and dangerous. And like many other situations - the "vehicle" that has less maneuverability usually has right of way - and there are also separation rules because of that.
The selfish idiots are those who believe the whole world is just there for their own entertainment only (usually just because they have money to spare), and other people have to comply with that, because they have no rights - while flying has always been a very cooperative environment exactly because of the risks involved.
The issue with drones is a computer flies them, so any dumbass can use one, safely on the ground, putting people in the air at risk. As I already wrote, there should be explosive in the controller that blows up if the drone crashes. Just to level the field...
Anyway, when you will be hit by a car, remember it has the same right as you to use the ground space...
Because GPS gives you the position, height, sizes of every possible obstacle within your path, right? The real world is a bit more complex than any simulation on a computer.
Actually, it's what car manufacturers are implementing now. The problem was not "mass surveillance", when cars were introduced there was no technology that could make them "smart". We have it only now.
Just like many devices were once designed just to perform their primary task, without any safety protection. In my childhood, I saw many people without fingers - or worse - getting goods from my grandfather hardware and tools store - most of them blue collars workers using tools and machinery that were quite dangerous. And sometimes existing safety protection were disabled because "they got in the way". Until they lost a finger, an eye, a hand, or an arm...
Most of the DJI restrictions can be easily lifted by the user - they are just there to ensure you can't fly unintentionally inside a zone that have safety, security or other concerns. You have to unblock them explicitly - so you can't say later "I didn't know I couldn't fly there freely".
There are of course some zones where flying is highly restricted and that cannot be easily unblocked.
Otherwise saying "responsibility for safely and legally operating a multicopter should lie with the operator/pilot" means the operator/pilot needs a license, to ensure he/she is aware of all the relevant rules, and any active restriction - a license that could be revoked from people who don't abide to the rules.
Even if so, how many have access to a Mars rover? There's a difference between the code you deploy on the devices you no longer control, and what you deploy on devices you fully control, and which outside the reach of the users.
With this kind of devices - including IoT - if safety checks can be easily bypassed, things may get dangerous.
