They've got one, it's called Russia. FIFY
Looking for vulnerabilities their security services can exploit is almost certainly the real motive. The US should implement a similar policy against Russian software makers such as Kaspersky, which the heads of six U.S. intelligence agencies testified on Capitol Hill that they have treated the company as a threat.
"If things were done no one would upgrade, if no one upgraded we'd all be out of jobs. That's how the current software industry works."
Also sounds like the legal industry, which is designed to keep the maximum number of lawyers employed as possible.
I just want names. Saying there's a million DVRs is useless.
Don't be such a cheap bastard & use a quality piezo speaker.
Maybe the computer forensics industry should create a standard that makes sense. The problem with an ISO that does not make sense is that even in civil litigation, non-compliance will be used by opposing council to undermine the results. So everyone in the biz will eventually have to adopt it if they want to stay in business. The only way to fix the situation is for the appropriate professional organization to create a sensical standard that, over time, can become the officially required standard. Not having a standard is not an option.
As long as Travis is CEO, Uber will remain a criminal enterprise.
If they truly want to differentiate themselves and save the most money, they would outsource all their MBA jobs to India. MBA's are the very definition of a commodity degree used in jobs were everyone is 100% replacable.
Actual measurement will be replaced by (machine) educated guessing. Greeeaaat!
What could possibly go wrong?
You mean everyone isn't looking for a "I'm a loser" badge to wear in public?
Probably most of the money went to the VC's who backed Otto. As for whether Google is going after them, good question.
The San Jose Mercury News is reporting that he is losing $250M in this.
I'd like to know how much of his money for Otto was still being vested, and hence what this cost him dollar-wise. When my start-up was acquired, we had golden hand-cuffs forcing us to stick around if we wanted our full amount commensurate with our start-up equity.
If he already had all of his Otto money, then other than possible ego bruising, BFD.
My experience with recycled cartridges for my HP laser printer, and my Epson Glycee photo printer, were both bad. In both cases, the refills screwed up in the printers after only a month or two & had to be tossed. So I've resigned myself to having to drop my drawers, bend over & grab my ankles, and buy the official ones every time either needs new cartridges. F*ck me.
If they can work around the chip, it's OK.
Big deal. Uber did that years ago.
Replacing eyes with cameras. What could possibly go wrong?
If people want to see the "gig economy" in action & where it leads, they just have to watch Victorian Slum House.
Like the Twit in Chief's silence.
The folks managing the pension fund have a legal fiduciary responsibility to those vesting in the pension fund, not showing loyalty to the company.
Their best bet is to follow Warren Buffetts advice, which is to simply invest in an S&P 500 index fund like Vanguard's. That is what Buffett specified in his will to be done with that portion of his wealth that is to provide for his wife.
So tell me again, what makes Shadowbrokers business model intrinsically less dependant on breaking the Law than Ubers?
Oh yea. Because the likes of the FSB & PLA must be too stupid to have also discovered these types of vulnerabilities.
The average paultry sum per worker ($500) strongly indicates that the amount of break time these workers lost was trivial. Aerospace technicians in California make on the order of $40 per hour. Looks like the ambulance chasers were the only ones who benefitted from this lawsuit.
And the only thing replaced by AI was "Technology Research" like Gartner does, as even a potted plant can do it.
Did. Last week. Got a reply claiming they were working on it.
Another Facebook hit piece, yet The Register still hasn't covered the now several-day-old story about the US Department of Justice opening a criminal investigation of Uber?
Comey was required by Congress to inform Congress if there was any material change in the Clinton email situation. And as noted, there was thanks to Wiener having approximately 20,000 Clinton emails on the laptop he & his wife both used. Clinton can finger point all she wants, but the entire email fiasco was of her own making. Had she not used her "private server" for Government business, there would have been no FBI investigation at all.
(And no, I am not a Trump supporter.)
Facebook = life clutter
LinkedIn = career clutter
Chatbots = pure clutter
OK, I'll ask...
If one just stole/was-given a trove of CIA documents/tools, why would anyone assume they were not booby trapped in some way? So why would anyone open any of them while the machine was connected to any network? And why wouldn't one monitor the crap out of what happened when the delivery media was mounted, monitor the network, checksum the bios before & after (maybe the HD firmware too), etc? And when one was done, wipe the hard drive & do a clean OS install at the very least (even if one examined the documents within a VM)? Or just treat the machine as expendable and either destroy it or dedicate its use only for examining the trove (and destroy it later). And never ever connect it to a network ever again. Being safe would only cost you the price of a cheap laptop.
IMHO, given where the documents/tools came from, being crazy paranoid would be just common sense.

It's the only way to be sure. (Since you can't nuke it from orbit.)
OK, I'll bite.
Why would you ever allow something like THAAD be connected to the Internet? Surely the military has the ability to network its systems independently of the Internet.
Wow, you really have been trained to limit your own thinking.
Create a brick & mortar business. Some businesses, like restaurants, will always be there. Always.
Chatting with a machine seems like the ultimate in intellectual masturbation.
He's a waste of a man and waste of an H1-B visa.
For as long as I can remember, Brazil has been engaging in tit-for-tat reciprocity of treating Americans when they enter Brazil exactly like the US treats Brazilians entering the US.
They'll just deny their cars ever have accidents, like they denied for decades their products could get malware.
Do you really think having some Uber clown at a keyboard a zillion miles away is going to be able to determine the sobriety of the accused driver? They should suspend on the accusation, the way most taxi systems (in the US) do, pending investigation. The real question is "So how do they investigate?"
Techically, sneaking a peak at someone's screen is unauthorized computer access.
Facebook is saying that it actively monitoring the content of your communications. Which means it's all monitorable by law enforcement or other government entity, and its subpoenable.
After the first incident he'd have gotten hold of a label maker & put a label prominently on the printer telling people to only used the canned air. Relying on word of mouth places the fail of the 2nd printer squarely on "Bill".
These investments suggest that no matter how sketchy Zunum's public information is at present, there must be something worthwhile in it.
As a long time Silicon Valley veteran with a number of starts under my belt, my experience is that the only VC's more gullible that SV firms are the VC arms of large corporations, which are always considered low tier VC's by anyone in the know. My money is this emperor has no clothes, but no one has the balls to demand a real feasibility analysis be placed in front of them.
Who would trust their ability to keep backdoor keys secure?
Jane Goodall worked on Chimpanzees, not Gorillas.
Have you ever seen a TOC or EULA that didn't say they can change it anytime without notice?
Вся ваша база принадлежит нам.
Then Uber cars are programed as if they are in "Death Race 2000".
