21% blacks and 9% hispanics?

Black and africans are 13% of the population, while hispanics are 17% in the US. I'd say the blacks are more than represented at Amazon. Worse with hispanics.

Mozilla whips out Rusty new Firefox Quantum (and that's a good thing)

NanoMeter

I loved using Firefox as my main browser for a long time, but had to ditch it for Vivaldi. Even Vivaldi is now starting to get bloated and I might go back to Firefox if it can be more careful with the memory usage. They also need to do something about the annoying Plugin Container crashes before I move back to Firefox.

China's 'future-proof' crypto: We talk to firm behind crazy quantum key distribution network

NanoMeter

Backdoors for sure

Rest of the world won't touch the crypto if it got backdoors - which I am pretty sure it has even if they deny it. The Chinese government won't allow it if it doesn't have backdoors.

China - socialist?

China's "socialist system" is about as socialist as DDR's system was democratic.

It's socialist only in name. It has become fascist.

Unhappy luddite

I love the march of technology, but I can see we're heading in the wrong direction. I am not happy to have to think like a luddite, but it's necessary for survival. Sometimes you need to know when to say "Stop. This ain't good".

I see they're selling DNA manipulation kits for 100 dollars on the internet. Can't be good. If there's one thing we don't need it is antibiotika resistent E.coli bacteria created by some derp in his home.

A bloody nightmare

The IoTs are just in the starting phase. The real nightmare will start when everything is connected, people's light bulbs, door locks, TVs, etc. The nightmare will not only be IoT's zombified for DDosing, but burglaries and break-ins via IoT.
