The day someone exploits a companies CSP for the dark side, will also be the day that company tries to dodge responsibility with... "Please disable CSP temporarily".
The dude on the offensive sounds like he is worried that his Dreaweaver sites might have Flash exploits not covered in his "Webpage Design for Dummies" book that he uses to suck out peoples privacy for G$$gle (to be fair, the book is the latest edition of 135 editions).
Sure, you and everyone who has used one say they're great, but I've never met any of you in real life. Surface seems to be that Big Fish in the mouth of the White Buffalo. I guess I'll keep an eye out, because I never know (or maybe I'll never know?).
Perfect shape.... 2 metric units...? Just leave it alone!
Why not just drop both of those marks and have it say "Stadium -->". Granted, the pictorial of a human smaller than a ball would have to be dropped from the far left. However, I see no issue with that from the poltically correct non-humans that will be seeing the sign.
Or... spend millions and make nothing into an insightful nothing (a government classic)
Xbox isn't a great distraction for financial analysts as Sony PS4 is serious competition (if SEGA returned with a bang, they're both fucked).
When you're a PC software company and your best positive spin is related to a slow and buggy video game console that plays mediocre games, you're playing yourself and hiding nothing.
Is this about UTF-8 vs. UTF-16 or literally about visual characters? Does twitter even comply with UTF-16 and the extra bytes?
What I don't understand is why put AI the the browser at all, do you intentionally want to slow down your AI? I'm sure the NSA/CIA types and bitcoin pirates love the idea, but for any remote AI work, it's horrible, even for the weekend warrior/project types of people. Just trash really.
"As it has a very low bar to use on the browser...."
Right there is the problem! jquery users who have no real footwork with memory managemen. Let us generalize that "low bar".
Have you ever noticed how anything graphically intense rendered by the browser isn't running in js? The bar isn't low, it might be as high as it gets in pure js. In fact, js performs so terribly slow as DOM reflow/repaint is a horrible design (no, I sadly don't have a better solution), they had to invent "workers" to make any real interaction even tolerable. So, maybe the bar isn't low or high, maybe it just doesn't exist.
"That enabling immediate response to users..."
Again, a jquery comment. The problem is your just bloating the browers references for what... drop down menus? The heart of interactive js can't be done with jquery (even jquery devs understand that, regardless of the newer native methods). Once you try to do actual interactive designs in js you will understand why strict libraries like ASM.js have arose (and will undoubtedly be replaced by Mozzilla's push).
I believe the future is C/C++ in browser natively.
Regardless, 6 months ago I dove in using the latest node.js enabling all beta features and all the latest browsers, I wanted the full effect regardless of compatibility. I used zero libraries in the browser and only 2 core libs for node. Here's a short on what you're missing...
By core dependancies, I mean as in no depedacies on other libraries. Node libraries have HUGE dependcies on other libs if you don't watch out (look up the lib "Express", it's bloooooated). To be honest, node.js isn't bad as a server language once you stop using crazy libs like Express, but the pratice of intentionally crashing without any trusted way of validating input prior to crash becomes stunting.
The hype is justified for I believe that the ease of creating interactive widgets makes it tinkery fun. The real drawback is memory usage. I don't care if it's serial, parallel, interstellar or orgasmic... the memory usage of even a simple waveform analyzer after render is large. It all apparently comes down to the broswers' garbage collection, which more times than not, operates in JiT so memory comsumption just seems to linger regardless of what js methods you use on the graphical objects (drag'n drop is ok, just don't drag and drop graphical collections and expect even decent memory usage).
"Fuck over millions of sick people, that's capitalism. Threaten to pull the hair..."
All of that and don't forget that Facebook provided the evidence for the supposed criminal charge. This news is stacked bottom to top. It's all about poster boys, so the next time you need to divert attention from corrupt motives, have a poster boy ready.
A hypothetical scenario that might have existed until 2001 would be that an IRC channel had all THREE creditors rooted and allowed ANYONE to run credit checks on ANYONE. So, hypothetically, Equifax and others have already proven they don't care about thier data house. Oh, yeh, did you know the big 3 only house credit data for the middle class? R.I.P. #CC (good riddance, but thanks for many revelations)
Whaaa? I see you tried Foxit's Unsafe mode.
P.S. those bitcoins aren't yours.
"... although most owners will be hankering for the newest shiney by then anyway."
No they won't, times have changed and people are wising up finally. Which is the reason why I believe Nokia should of went a different path entirely, maybe even hold off on mobile phones entirely until they could come to the table with more than just... blah. It's blah, we might want Nokia to prevail for many reasons, but this phone is simply blah.
As fat as no market for it, I disagree. It's just another price point to fill, makes sense. Sadly, it's still blah. All these phones do such similar things that even the smallest feature has to be marketed as amazing to mind wash people into believing it. Even using the word 'nice' to describe current 'killer features' is starting to stretch truth.
Soon this will go on everywhere.
What about faulty microchips implanted in employees, do you get paid for having yourself repaired? We know if it's left up to a corporation, you won't. Thus, you'll need to have it defined in law for otherwise.
A MegaCorp is searching your private property AND detaining you without pay. So some people think a court should not be involved? The capitalist zombies have risen!
You're not missing anything.
Each episode expect to watch non-stop talking. While they stand around and talk only the back drop changes, exactly like a soap opera. Just replace patios with fields and hospitals with castles. I would say there is murder, but daytime soaps also have that.
Microsoft: "believe"... believe damn it!
They had an open house sort of things years ago, my son didn't care to go, he said he'd prefer the amusement park. So I responded "Microsoft it is!"... he cried.
"If you are willing to pay that amount of money ... is it not better to go for a Xenon CPU ?"
If the year falls before the year < 2022, yes. Technically, these are the old/current gen Xeons rebadged for desktop, I see nothing different than the exact 14c I have besides you aren't guaranteed anything with these i9's (xan. they even run in parallel?). I've been running 2 OK'ish 14 core ES chips for nearly 2 years, cost $300usd total for both. $720 for 128GB Hynix and $450 for a supermicro mobo. Still less than 1 of these CPU's.
I think if I cared about gaming and streaming and all that, I clearly would buy AMD (actually I might stitch these CPU's and buy AMD anyway).
"The swf is 16kb, the jquery version is 205kb. Is that really progress?"
Where in the hell did the 205kb come from? If you want something small and quick, you don't use jquery, everyone knows this. That said, 205kb... not minified or something?
jquery was great 8 years ago, but with all the native API changes added to the language, jquery has turned into the new Java Trap. Even WORSE actually, because people can learn to write better code than what jquery can provide, but they're just lazy and really don't know what they are doing.
This debate is horrible. At the start, the ipod was known for its wheel, that's it, nothing else. If you don't know that you, you didn't experience this period in time due to age or interests. It's as indifferent as that, everyone knows this, even grandmothers!
What the article didn't mention is that the iPod literally saved Apple. It was a promise to the RIAA to defeat Napster clones. Once the RIAA bite into the Apple, Apple used all those newly opened doors to generate income to further develop 'portable' devices that furthered even more promises (AT&T). Thus saving Apple stock from the grave. Of course, how did those promises turn out for tbe RIAA or AT&T? Considering both are rotten, I can't blame Apple (not for that at least).
Incremental upgrades must cost 2x the amount? Is anything you've mentioned new technology or just updated existing technology? Doesn't matter, prices only jump by unjustified amounts. Maybe people really stop buying phones like they used to ago the price must be absurd. I'm in no way pretending nobody will pay the ~25% markup, I'm just curious how everything costs ~25% more when they're fabrication and licensing contracts couldn't justify it.
I really don't consider a 2160 monitor a new technology compared to a 1600 monitor, I call it an upgrade.
It's price fixing man. Apple (who I do NOT like) isn't alone here,
O.K., before someone jumbles the price justification with airy dairy double talk, all the 'old' tech in these phones only cost less over time all together, that's hard to argue. So, the 'savings' these companies are making _should_ lower the cost of anything 'new'. Nope, these companies are just upping the cost because they're upping the feature list. Reminds me of the cable companies to be honest. A bunch of shit you may or may not use increases cost.
It all depends on intent. You can always file a suit, but if the inherent topic of forum isn't profitably and knowingly malicious at its core or ambigous enough, freedom of speech (currently) holds weight, regardless of public or private (unless of course you state anything at all negative about the USA gov., which has to mean you're a terrorist of course... of course).
Madonna.com WAS an example, so was/is Nissan.com or thewhitehouse.com or bestbuysucks.com or... the old firefox.com. Hell, if you roll the clock back 20 years I couldn't name 1 celebrity who actually owned thier own name.com... not 1.
?? Sorry, as a video gamer Spectre means something different to me I guess. Are you implying my input is cast from thin air to join me in rigorous thought? Actually, you're on to something. I may need to debuff thought prior.
99% of politicians would disagree.
Once someone decides to split all divisions of crininal trade into the smallest possible entry points, it's going to be hard to stop. Clearly I know very little about three sites, but it seems that once they stop being the Amazon of illegal goods and start being the Bittorrent of them, they will be up much longer. Problem is unionizing a band of THIEVES. However, that's not impossible.
I have to fully disagree.
Don't get caught up, people have become so opinionated that people will justify the definition of any word to justify their own opinion. Malicious software is not advertising software, neither is networking software.
Also, this article seems to prove statistically that "sideloading" increases the probabilities of malware.
The article is F.U.D., but it does remind people that the longer it takes to find serious flaws, the more the pressure builds. If a serious flaw in iOS is ever found, DUCK!!! Of course if you use Google's Android like me, that might not be an option as your back might already be broken. If you use low powered phones like me, Google's Android has cut you in 2.
"...but if MS won't provide them (instead just supplying security fixes for the next 5 years)"
I'd like to point out that 2 companies are rendering hardware incompatible in a manner. Am I supposed to believe this is anything but intentional for obvious reasons? Why sell just software or hardware, when you can force the sale of both. So what's new in news.
It's not that people aren't talking, it's that they're not talking to each other.
Let's say you organize for agenda X, who do you talk to with motivation? Notice it is billion dollar corporations doing the communication, the ones that own the communication?
Don't get me wrong, but if you want to organize and talk about passing new laws on paper, sorry, MegaCorp. doesn't allow that anymore. I'm getting tired of people stating I'm too cynical, especially when the worst of the truth even shows. If I wear a tinfoil hat, these people wear blind folds and ear plugs.
The issue you describe isn't IT exclusive, but we can keep TALKING about what ever, freedom of speech isn't diluted yet.
/"The correct way to deal with this would be to style your HTML so that stuff gets left or right-aligned.
That this makes it into a language standard in 2017 is ridiculous."/
People said the same about print formatting JSON, yet people use it. Prettying things is useful in some languages that don't have default Ui mechanisms such as CSS. So, I agree this pad feature is not needed.
"...the later returns an array just composed of values, ..."
It also doesn't read the prototype, which is the big part (speed).
This is the multi-build multi-exploit that Flash dreams to be, that's saying something. Tim needs to step away. He's either rhetorical only or playing politics, he's clearly not hands on any more.
This so called DRM isn't needed as their is alreafy encryption for this, so what is the real reason for this? Possibly to bypass user encryption with sandbox data collection... no, that wouldn't be ethical.
As a US citizen, I understand the NYC location, but as a German, is London really that foreign to you? In fact as a first worlder, isn't London and NYC basically the most identical 2 cities you can pick across countries? Maybe they should keep 1 or the other, but not both. If they dropped NYC, they could pick Austin or Nashville or Portland or even something like Atlanta. Then if they still wanted to spend the same, they could open an office in BFE Japan or India or some other country to open doors.
I heard they changed something for the little guy, but outside supporting 1 MegaCorp, can you give specific examples? They had a decent interface, which made me hope they would stay around.
The way I see it, none of these music "services" will ever do great while Youtube exists. Even with Youtube gone, peoples musical taste change like their tastes in websites, and for those who's taste remains in their highschool era, Youtube is perfect.
Honestly, my taste is all over the place. Oddly enough for me is that MySpace seems the best out of all of them, yet MySpace is regarded as a failed social site to most.
"But it's not having your stuff nicked by random party officials that really allows you to invest."
Ah, so you were NOT affected by the US banks collapsing mortgages, or is it that corrupt democratic officials have plausible deniability, were communist officials do not? I actually agree with everything else you typed, but maybe your bias is bleeding through with that sentence.
For some reason upon glance I read the title as... "Intel laying off 140 in Cathy Ireland". Had to double check that, I was sadly wrong. Like these employees, gone but not forgotten.
Be honest here, which is more of a secret: The US gov. tracking unknowing people or Facebook tracking unknowing people? See the similarity, that can't be by chance. At least the gov. no longer hides the fact... but Facebook... gag.
Notice Amazon didn't directly refute what Walmart's alluring to. I don't find anything to respect either corporation, but Amazon is clearly not prepared to throw punches. Live and let live isn't a business strategy, but then again, Amazon's free ride hasn't exposed them against serious retailers... until now.
The Cliton admin. was VERY good to them, a fact people like to mumble over and pretend never happened, but now they're on their own, with clearly weak P.R. Again, I care nothing about either corp., but it will be interesting to see if Amazon stumbles while not Walmart making moves, but China (i.e. Alibaba).
"... your shiny little Linux box (or whatever) gets just as pwned if you get someone to do 'insmod evil.ko' as root."
Sure, because the best way to have a user install your rootkit is to have them open a shell and type exact characters, after they have typed in the root password.
"50% of the time, it works all the time." - Brian
Yep. I run 3 VM's on an OpenMediaVault (OMV) NAS due to certain network traffic and versioning. OMV doesn't run the latest of anything, so unless I want to run an entire seperate peice of hardware for a few things used seldomly, VM's it is.
"Eventually, this will allow Comma.ai to offer self-driving as a service. "As the system gets better, we'll charge a monthly fee," said Hotz."
Guess I'll have to check the "Open Source" license, but considering the improvements are being made by via open source, how are they going to sell it? I assume it is one of those modern licenses that basically read "we'll get you to work for free, and profit" (i.e. any Google license). It's either one of those shady licenses or there shouldn't be anything from you or even I from selling the software ourselves... or selling it "as a service".
True, but they get clicks for bricks.
It all pays the same.
This is true, but while the film did great, the toys didn't start selling well until about 81. So if you are 40yrs old now, your earliest memorys might be the plethora of Star Wars 1 and 2 toys, so you could want them as much as any other adult toy.
P.S. Sorry, nobody really used the exact numerals or subtitles back then, they were referred to as "the first one" and "the second one". Then came the 3rd one... "the one with Ewoks".
True and right. Consider this a done deal. We're gonna build that wall.
You should of pulled a wikipedia and put the "source" link in an overlooked location. Seriously, you just can't come right out of the gate with that.
"Its not the same boom bust politically linked backed by fuck all nonesense...
That seems a little over zealous considering that the "boom bust" can be what, anywhere between 20% and 600% inflation, what is wise about that? Maybe bitcoin was an offshoot of a true digital currency years ago, but today its value seems to be dictated more like the next trendy cat video.
I'm not implying it can't or shouldn't have value, but just that it needs to hit a normalization spot for people to understand that if 1 bitcoin was demonetized, how much value would be lost. After all, everything of its kindred is measured from zero, and with bitcoin, the zero never rests.
"It is also not something a "currency" should do..." Can't say much to that as I agree with the core of it, but gold, silver and especially copper all do the same (but again, I agree with the sentiment as it's rare).
Senior manager indeed! Only that type of "person" can smile at such a hot pile of crap such as...
"... shifting its service delivery model to be heavily weighted to providing services with our dedicated employee workforce. We believe this will help IBM accelerate the benefits of cognitive technology services for our clients around the world."
It's just piled on there, real, real HIGH. I guess it's still tethered to Earth...slightly.
FYI, I don't believe Rometty is a real person. She might be an out of date pleasure model for politicians. She clearly fails the Voigt-Kampff test with any other human "interactions".
"Slackware is my primary desktop"
Sooo, that has changed. May I ask how much effort it took?
I'll be honest, I don't even run Debian anymore, strictly Ubuntu flavors. Granted, I haven't ran Slackware since back in 2004, but I did run it as a primary machine to write a SCSI driver for about 8 months, and it wasn't at all enjoyable. I had a old Voodoo graphics card that would in no way run past 640x480. I had to stop using my Logitech keyboard because I couldn't get the USB to power past BIOS. Actual SCSI support was limited on speeds (at least for the Ricoh I was sampling). But, yeh, I did get the driver to work.
You hardcore C coders can go on with your bad selves, I'm just too old and lazy to tweak Unix anymore. But I'm still surprised you're running Slackware as a PRIMARY desktop. When I think primary, I think graphics, sounds, wireless keyboards, multiple displays...the works. Have you really set all that up on Slackware? I wonder because if I get bored and attempt to write a driver (need one for a ELO touch screen right now), I'll probably skip Debian all together and go back to something like Slackware.
Uhhh... Fox News is not one bit "right"...ever. But even Fox News knows this, hence why it legally classifies itself as "infotainment" (people forget/ignore this fact).
Is it just the word "News" in the title that leads you to believe otherwise? If so, don't worry, Alien VS. Predator isn't a credible threat (because Predator is bad ass!!).
"Like it or not, 99.999% people "want"" an Intel box with Windows on it."
Well... don't stop,!! keep'em comin'!!
99.999% of people want to use GE light bulbs with 120V.
99.999% of people want to ride roller coasters that use 2-cycle bearing grease. (Flame on!)
"Easy: Anything The Blob doesn't approve of being said, in particular anything referring to consequences of still allowing a moronic failing-upward "elite" to rule over us - and tell us what to say or not, how to say it and when too."
Bingo! Sadly, they still impose upon us what they wish, as they are the legal system. Someday, even the pens that is mightier than the swords will run out of ink. Someone ruling another's speech isn't a new concept or even absolutely wrong, but today's methods are so obviously greedy. The thing that seems so odd to me is that with all that money, the methods are so unimaginative. If I show you the action of take, take, take, is there any other action I could be doing? It's just strange.
Honestly, public executions never left. It's just now they occur on the streets between citizens, then they are sold to you with "news" channels at 11pm.
But what about poloiticians and greedy execs? They are not out there dying like we are. This seems unbalanced. How about a mandatory public execution of politicians? Yes, a few innocent ones will die, but how many innocent die daily that aren't poloticians, 10, 100, 1000?
So after many centuries of working towards peace, it seems saddening but real that the Aztecs had it right so long ago: You today, me tomorrow.
P.S. It can even be rationalized that the modern version of flowering wars is business exctracting citizens lifestyle for sacrificial capitalism.
