Pence v Clinton: Both used private email for work, one hacked, one accused of hypocrisy

cyke1

Even though it was wrong to use the server, the security risk of pence doing it was minor since he was only gov of a state and had limited access to sensitive material where as Hillary being head of state department, the 2nd most powerful person in the country pretty much besides the president did. She had access to top level national secrets and classified information. Both were wrong but Clinton's is worse give the level of access in to sensitive material she had and sent using that server.

Donald Trump confirms TPP to be dumped, visa program probed

cyke1

oh yea..

H-1B visa program needs to be looked at bad. It was ment to be a way for companies to get workers if there wasn't enough to fill the need of the job. It has turned in to a way for companies to fire American workers and bring in cheap labor at the expense of the American worker that has to train the cheap labor how to do their job. Just like a lot of law's that got abused and this is 1 law should be canned.

Trump vs. Clinton III - TPP looks dead, RussiaLeaks confirmed

cyke1

with Hillary running TPP is far from dead. If she win's its very much alive and very much being signed in to law. She can claim to be against it but she helped right it and called it the gold standard like she supported NAFTA.

FBI director claims that videoing police is causing crime uptick

cyke1

Re: Nothing to hide : Nothing to fear

Here is the problem, most these "videos" when they get uploaded they will neglect to show the whole incident either cause the fool was slow to start the recording or they cut it off and only show when the officer responses to other other person does. SO it makes cop look bad when other guy started the fight or scuffle. Its very common problem where something that happens is taken outta context and people take the video as 100% and never consider what person did to cause the officers response.

AT&T, Dish have a problem with Charter-TWC merger – surprise!

cyke1

" the two companies claimed the proposed tie-up could damage competition in the US."

Yes charter and TWC are not competeing in same markets, but AT&T and directv did compete in same markets. SO how does 1 that doesn't compete directly with each other more damaging to competition then 2 that merged that did?

Sounds like a certain group of people in this country that complain about someone elses doing but ignores they do same thing they whine that someone else does.

BlackBerry can't catch a break: Now it's fending off Jeep hacking claims

cyke1

OCZ wasn't ones at fault. Sandforce the company that made the controller they used screwed up in on the firmware, sadly since OCZ was largest SSD maker at the time they took the most flak.

"In this particular case, the vulnerability came about through certain architecture and software components that are unrelated to the QNX Neutrino OS."

If that is the case it wouldn't be blackberry's fault if fiat added in software/modules that were flawed. It would be like blaming MS for cause adobe flash cause windows to get infected or java. But people will see them guilty by association kinda like where OCZ took a huge hit for a bug in SSD controller firmware they had nothing to do with.

Oh, Obama's responded to the petition to pardon Snowden. What'll it be?

"The White House stated that no amount of public pressure – even from a petition backed by 167,954 signatures – will sway it from moving forward with its prosecution of Snowden"

Someone forgot to tell Obama, um "the white house" won't be his much longer when he gets tossed out after his 8 years of destroying this country and putting it in massive debt.

Apple CORED: Boffins reveal password-killer 0-days for iOS and OS X

cyke1

Re: we've been here before

Seems to be a recurring trend with Apple, everything is a hard to fix problem. Guess that is how it ends up when only thing in your face is money.

If you remember the celeb photo leak, yea Apple knew of the flaw that was used 6 months ahead of time, nothing was done to fix it til after the leak.

Re: Waiting game?

From what i seen, Apple has no problem after 2 years doing it. that is generally how old OS is when its cut off completely from updates. PPC i think it got 1 new OS version after switched to intel after that is was dead.

I never said they haven't reacted to it, i said they have an issue getting things fixed in a timely manner. There was a flaw called flashback i think it was many years ago. Was a java exploit, 0 day bug that windows fix was out within a day, Apple had the updated code to fix it as well but took then 2 months before releasing the fix. Apple has a habit of taking a LONG time to fix nasty security flaw's. Its so bad that it would be easy to say Windows is 10x more secure then and Apple's OS's just on fact MS fix's things in a reasonable amount of time, where as apple you can't expect it to be fixed for least 2months if not more.

Give the problem with this flaw, Apple shouldn't need 6 months hell they knew about it for 9 months now still hasn't fixed it. Reason you say 1 months is to make Apple get off their butt and FIX IT. Problem is Apple has a nasty problem of NOT fixing stuff in a timely manner EVEN with ALL THE MONEY they make takes them months on end to fix an issue.

they told you to wait 6 months? IS that a JOKE? Seriously i would tell them they got 1 and its made public. Reason for that is Apple is Terrible at fixing flaws in their crap. Make them get off their butts and fix it

AMD promises 100 gigabyte/second memory

cyke1

Re: Promised?

Um mantle being open, no DX12 in the works when anoucing mantle, no new hardware needed for freesync when new scaler in monitor was needed, Bulldozer making them back competitive with intel, power of their APU's (they are even getting sued by investors over this one). I could go on but you get the point.

AMD has Promised a ton of crap over the years and end up not being able to live up to those promises. So I will wait til they prove what they claim.

Roku 3: Probably the best streaming player on the market ... for now, at least

cyke1

Re: Roku Media Player

DLNA requires re-encoding of video to support its spec so its no better then plex/serviio.

cyke1

I wouldn't call it best streaming, as it has almost 0 local support for video files on a network outside some complicated 3rd server software. My old Boxee supports playing just about everything stored on my desktop, MkV,AVI,OGM,MP4, ETC. via Windows file shares. Yet natively roku can't do that without plex or serviio. I own Both.

Saudi Arabia hires 'ethical hackers' to silence smut slingers

cyke1

"Saudi Arabia's prude police have hired ethical hackers to pop hedonistic Twitter accounts identified for spruiking smut leading to arrests."

So they call them ethical even though they will be hacking/cracking a companies servers that are not in their country? Another issue is "smut" as they call it, who determines what is Smut and what isn't? Problem with this if the owner of said accounts don't live in Saudi Arabia they have 0 right to attack anyone's twitter account and take it over cause they don't like what they say.

Apple's 16GB iPhones are a big fat lie, claims iOS 8 storage hog lawsuit

Sadly if they win this lawsuit it owns up lawsuit against pretty much any phone makers, computer makers, etc. Anything that has storage in it cause there is what its max space is but OS for said device takes some some of it.

Blind justice: Google lawsuit silences elected state prosecutor

cyke1

That would be all well and good if that was what the case WAS about. It wasn't though, it was MPAA wanting Hood to put pressure on Google over movie piracy. They put the illegal drugs crap in as a smoke screen for what it was really after. Just like how when they tried to push SOPA through they claimed it was focused on things like child pornography, which was the smoke screen for MPAA/RIAA to get blocking of sites in the US on a ISP/DNS level.

Google sues Mississippi Attorney General 'for doing MPAA's dirty work'

cyke1

Hard to believe a politician to start with but when he goes after a company that MPAA has had years of difficulty getting them do what they they think is enough which even then won't be enough in their eye. That 1+million $ donation kinda says you aint doing this for the children, that is like how they claims SOPA was to shutdown child porn on the internet, its nothing more then blatant smoke screen for what its really intended.

Mom and daughter SUE Comcast for 'smuggling' public Wi-Fi hotspot into their home

Re: Hope they win.

You as a customer can opt out of it and not have it.

"and places a burden on their bandwidth and electricity bills."

Thing with what they claim burdens their electricity, that is a stretch since the router is already there using power for your home wifi anyway, the open doesn't incur anymore power then if its off. Bandwidth well, you are not charged for any bandwidth used by the open wifi as that is separate.

Microsoft tries to defend Irish servers from US g-men invasion, again

Re: Good on Microsoft

NSA might already have the data, but if it was used in a case against a company or someone it would be a problem in the fact how that data was obtained. Likely would be ruled as obtained via illegal tap or another illegal means so would be deemed inadmissible.

Stuff like this doesn't happen less its an inside job, they can deny it all they want but chances that a rogue outside hacker that gets this kinda axx are insanely remote. They would need source access and time to modify the source and make sure it work's.
