it seems to me like the term is being thrown around... I didn't see anything that a bit of colour correction and fudging with playback wouldn't achieve.

It's not different with the post-soviet states, where you knew that the media was lying to you. Yet it's primarily the old generation that support the likes of Orban or Kaczynski who use fake news to further their agenda. Hell, they commonly use the same rhetorical devices!
as if Repugnants haven't been mocking Obama's Tan Suit, his choice of mustard and Michelle's bare shoulders
Ah, right, I forgot, people in science and entertainment are allowed to have an opinion on politics only if it agrees with Repugnant world-view.

clearly, it's the kids with stage three cancer
"While converting heat to electricity is inefficient, that loss can be overcome by the potential cost savings – storing heat is 50x to 100x cheaper than storing electricity, the researchers say."
actual numbers for that? missing. wonder why...
thermal solar already struggles to be competitive with PV and while electric heating is close to 100% efficient, the extraction would have to be an order of magnitude better than thermal solar
there's also the other side of ContentID, the one that flags videos that include CC0 and public domain music for copyright infringement. The one that gives you no way to really escalate it when the claimant "disputes" your claim that using CC0 music really isn't copyright infringement.
requiring ContentID on everything only gives power to people that can hire a lot of lawyers – publishers – not small content creators
my understanding is that you are legally entitled to 3 months of work after termination notice*
getting 6 months pay *and* not having to work those 3 months is not something I would call "taking advantage of an employee", so rather fine by me
(having just few hours to decide it is a bit shitty though, but then she did get more than 24h to decide it)
* - not familiar with UK law in particular, but I'm assuming it's an EU-wide standard for long term employment
While C(r)apita was upfont about it, I'm not so sure if this is legal practice - 76h work week is almost 11h a day every day for 7 days a week. That is excessive by any measure.
But that is completely different issue from the way she had her employment terminated. 6 month severance pay is entirely reasonable, and actually better than the regular termination when you still have to work for few months, instead of having ability to spend that time searching for a new place.
@robidy and no languages protect against buffer overflows and helps with constant-time processing and uniform memory access at the same time.
the only language that I know of that helps with the latter is FACT and it's closer to domain-specific language than general purpose
go watch PBS Space Time and then you can talk about intelligence of people that watch YouTube
just like with TV, there is "reality TV" garbage and there is Planete and NGC; just like with books, there is 50 Shades of Gray and there is Animal Farm or Foundation
the medium does not define the quality of work in it
> provide a warning, and a way for the user to continue past the warning if they deem the risk is acceptable, or if they just don't care.
we had this kind of behaviour in browsers, it is exactly the reason why BEAST was exploitable
and showing HTML error that the user can click through is way, way too late – the authentication cookies were already sent over the insecure channel
what? companies generally don't have a "Internet access only, limited at that" guest WiFi network? how do they handle external people that come to negotiate a contract or make a presentation or 50 other different things?
please don't tell me they get a corporate laptop with full access to internal network?
