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".
Guess it won't work now...
It's too bad that the companies that sell the systems that shoot a net about 100 feet to snag drones charge an arm & a leg. Perhaps some enterprising back ally Chinese company can flood the market with sub-$100 ones. That would allow personal air space protection without running up against the laws US towns usually have about discharging firearms inside town limits, or the hunting regs that prohibit discharging firearms within certain proximities to buildings.
Even the Hollywood Reporter is questioning the story.
If the network owners knew enough to properly set up a resilient network, they would not own any Nests.
Er, no. If you use a router from a good vendor, it will allow things like a cellular failover. If the router is also on a UPS, someone can cut all the cables they want and your network stays connected. Even cheap consumer grade routers from good router makers support this feature with "pay as you go" cellular. (e.g. Peplink Surf SOHO)
Bender said it best in his run for President:
"Kill All Humans! For a better tomorrow."
They don't get sued because their T&C's usually say you can't sue and must use arbitration. So if you try to sue, the courts bounce your case.
Same for "priest". Pastor Trevon Gross isn't a priest, he's pastor at the Hope Cathedral, one of the fundamentalist churches that infests the US, mostly in the South.
The real first question is "Why?" This was done around 1980.
Oracle has always been a sociopathic organization, and being manipulative is just part of the game, even if done badly. So why would anyone be surprised that they try to be sycophantic if they perceive that to be to their advantage? The one thing the present Administration has shown it is full of are Trump sycophants, like the FCC chairman.
Hmmm... "pre-owned" does not cut it either, as the previous launch customer only borrowed a ride.
"Ubered" would only make sense if SpaceX screwed both launch crew & the customer, skimmed the cash flow & did fake ghost launches whenever they thought NASA was looking.
"Second hand" sounds too low class, like someone's cast off.
"Pre-tested" might work, as it sounds like a feature.
"Pre-exersized" sounds kind of classy, so maybe they should call it that.
"Google wants companies to hook their signage up to the new Cloud Video API to manipulate shoppers in real time."
Doesn't that require people to actually go to stores for it to work?
Who the hell goes to anything other than grocery stores these days?
Given that everything Uber has said from the get-go has been a lie, starting with being a "ride share" rather than "car hire (taxi)" company, why would anyone believe this blog post means anything is changing? Besides, this blog post does not say they won't continue obstructing law enforcement. It just says they are reviewing, which just means "waiting for people to lose interest".
The blog post is just typical SV obfuscation.
The Feds should go after Uber & it's VC's under RICO.
I've been in enough courtrooms to know that a witnesses incentives don't necessarily align with either side all of the time. While a witness (in the US) can take the 5th claiming the right not to self-incriminate, there's a whole boatload of witness questions where the 5th is clearly not applicable yet a witness might not want to answer. The only way out is to say they don't recall, as no one can prove they do recall, even if later in their testimony their "memory comes back".
And Comey is dead wrong. In the US, one of the first things every law student learns is that a witness who does not want to testify can always say "I don't recall."
"As I understand, he was their top IT man at the time..."
First rule of any security system, not just IT, is always have checks & balances and let no one person have all of the keys to the Kingdom unsupervised. If nothing else, because any employee might might kick the bucket at any time. (In the US, odds of dying in a car accident in any given year is about 1-in-6000.)
Banks learned this over 100 years ago. That's one of the reasons in the early 20th century most banks required all bank officers, even the President of the bank, to take off at least 2 consecutive weeks per year - it was a chance for the bank to audit what that officer had been doing. I know this because my in-laws owned some banks in the early 20th Century. Don't know how common a practice it is now.
There's definitely enough evidence to jail Uber's management & VC's under RICO. But as we all know, the 1% aren't subject to the same laws as the rest of us.
In most States in the US, employees are what is called "at will", which means you can be let go for no reason with no notice. All they have to do is say that your services are no longer required. If they let you go like that (without a stated cause, so technically you are not fired but are laid off) then you are eligible to collect unemployment benefits. If you quit or are fired for cause, then you are ineligible for unemployment benefits. Smart employers in at will States let problem employees go using the at will method as it makes it harder for them to sue. Of course, if the person applies for a job and that prospective employer checks whether they had worked there, you have to say they were laid off, not fired.
That "AI" really means Artificial Idiocy.
Due to Yahoo owning a huge chunk of Alibaba, an investment that pre-dates Meyer by quite a long time.
Only a investment fool would confuse the increase in value of a company's assets (akin to it's real estate holdings) inflating it's book value with how the company's core business is doing.
Just for hiring Mayer in the first place.
If you need to hire someone to turn a failing organization around, the last thing anyone with any brains would do is hire someone who has zero experience with turning around failing organizations. And that describes Mayer because she spent her whole career at a place like Google. Mayer's failure was as predictable as the sunrise.
If you need to hire someone to turn a failing organization around, you hire someone who has done it at least once before.
And their Newtons don't have web access, much less browsers, so they could not even think of Googling anything.
In the US, we are still waiting for a Wall Street firm or person to be held accountable for the 2008 financial crisis that Wall Street created.
I call it a smart phone.
Makes phone calls too.
Unleash a crime wave we can't even fathom today.
Just think of the plausible deniability that a well hacked autonomous vehicle affords.
Apparently you flunked logic.
"records of assaults in taxis are not generally available" ≠ "records of assaults in taxis are not available anywhere"
The bigger question people should ask is why Uber continually fights requirements for it's drivers that many jurisdictions have for taxi drivers to be fingerprinted by the police and have a police run criminal background check that taps (in the US) into the nation-wide criminal data base, which makes it vastly harder than Uber's "background check" for someone with a criminal history to get through.
It's part of the neo-sharcropper economy, which is a clone of the worse version of sharecropping.
In sharecropping, the landlord fronts the money for owning the property & for planting the next crop, the sharecropper does the work, and the landlord & sharecropper share in the proceeds of the crop sale. The goal is for both the landlord & sharecropper to make money and this system has them co-invest in the crop, albeit in different "currencies", and share the investment risk.
The digital sharecropper economy ah la Uber, is vastly more abusive to the "sharecropper" than in normal sharecropping. In the digital sharecropper economy, the "digital landlord" takes on zero risk and simply skims cash off the cash flow. The "digital landlord" thus makes money regardless of the profit & loss of the "digital sharecropper". The "digital sharecropper" takes on 100% of the risk both in terms of capital investment (owning & maintaining a car or property) and in terms of operating profit/loss.
What's not to like (if you are a scumbag like Uber)?
Follow the money.
Or in AI parlance, "You're data processing is low speed and high error rate."
Google could probably dynamically throttle the requests from specific requestors based on the valid hit rate claiming that doing so simply prioritizes requests from folks with valid requests. Make the number of requests per hour accepted from a specific requestor be inversely proportional to the valid hit percentage of the prior hour or day. Adjust accordingly for folks gaming the system.
