Perhaps this is how sharks communicate? They have lasers, right?

"Any inhabitants of the planets in the HD 98800 system would see four stars in the sky and the shadows of the stars would appear at different times. The amount of sunlight would also vary across different latitudes."
"Nightfall" by Isaac Asimov anyone? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nightfall_(Asimov_novelette_and_novel)
Staying at home is not an option unless the vote is well and truly rigged. In my case, I had a choice between batshit crazy and criminal. I held my nose and chose the criminal. I fully expect the US to get itself into something that it really cannot get out of.
I told myself after season 2 of Obama that I would vote for the Republitards until the Donald got the nomination.
Some of this functionality would have been nice in my wife's case after she left her wallet in a rental car she returned to the airport (just last night). She discovered it while going to her gate. If her phone had barked at her 33 feet away from the car, she would have been tipped off. The other features (especially the honkin' battery pack) are fairly useless.
The video does point out a flaw in the design though. If tied to your phone and it really works, you should never lose your wallet (or phone) and allow someone to pilfer it. You will know you are about 30 feet away when it goes walkabout.
I read that "article" and started rolling on the floor about half way through as it degraded like the last half of the story, "Flowers for Algernon". Misspelling, grammar and atrocious use of the apostrophe accelerated as I read and enjoyed. I hope it was written to be satirical.
“The 'Hollywood' portrayal of IT is that a few keystrokes can solve anything. This has led to an unrealistic expectation on technology and timescales.”
Yeah, they watch Scorpion and see the hacker type furiously on the keyboard in front of a screen displaying something like the Matrix screensaver. The hacker gets in 30 seconds and saves the world.
Not the only abuse of science in that show, but it always makes me cringe. Walter O'Reilly sold himself out for that show.
Sounds like the investigatory powers that be have probable cause to serve a warrant on Google. A murder allegedly took place and a possible recording device was present. Since the device was the property of the victim, it seems appropriate for Google to submit what it has. If it was the property of the alleged perpetrator, it would get more complicated. The Alexa is like the surveillance cameras the the police go after when canvassing the crime scenes.
The person that did not know Canada was only 12 miles away was a transplant from Texas. I am surprised he found his way to Washington State as Texans are generally ignorant of anything outside of Texas.
Geographic ignorance in the States is appallingly common. I have been in many parts of the country where people did not know where New Hampshire (my home) was.
"No secure communications can be made on systems, protocols and designs created by the Americans."
The Americans (of which I am one) are not the only players. Everybody's stuff is being hacked by everybody else. Get your routers from Huawei and let the Chinese in your conversations instead of the Americans. Same stuff different pack of nerds.
