But is it? Is it any different from blocking IP ranges on a firewall or dropping email as spam using its destination?
I get what you mean, I'm not trying to say that some people aren't unfairly targetted, I think that police randomly stopping black people because they assume they have a knife is wrong. But if there have been 200 stabbings in that neighbourhood then policing that neighbourhood and stopping people to check for knives seems proportional. If that neighbourhood is 90% black, does that change things? Personally, I say no, because I treat it as a local crime thing rather than a racial/cultural one.
Playing devil's advocate here...but if algorithms show that a certain postcode has an elevated amount of crime and that same postcode is majority black/polish/white/muslim/jewish/chinese then is it actually discriminatory to police those areas more (and by extension stop more black/polish/white/muslim/jewish/chinese under suspicion)?
To be fair, it does depend on what I'm doing, but I sometimes use inbuilt windows zip. Why? Because I can double click into the file from within windows explorer, if all I am after is viewing a log file within a zip quickly, then it makes more sense to reach that in a couple of clicks rather than bothering to unzip with a different product.
Other than that though, I'll freely admit that built in functionality for handling zip archives sucks balls.
I'm sorry, you've confused me here. I'm not sure if it is the way you've written things, but you've lost me somewhere by Venus, I believe. You seem to have created an account on here just to link to a note you have posted on your Facebook account, and you are saying that essentially 'Einstein was wrong if Einstein was wrong!'. I believe that's called tautology. Now, I could go on to Facebook to read your post, but I have no wish to log in to that site, so either post what your point is here (not sure how it is relevant regardless) or give it up and toddle on.
Google scan app for malware, reassuring dev and end user
There have been hundreds of cases involving numerous infected apps on Google Play which have only been removed after someone made the larger comminuty aware of the problem. Now I'm not saying that any malware scanner is perfect, but Google's method for vetting apps has been derided as being very poor for quite some time.
