Cop films chap on body-worn cam because he 'complains about cops a lot'. Chap complains


Pretty rare that a cop gets in trouble for actually USING a body cam. The justification given for its use makes sense, if only to help separate unnecessary and frivolous complaints about the police from the ones that REALLY need to be looked into and addressed. That being said, if it was that much of a concern to the officer, I feel like it would have been appropriate to mention at the outset that he was recording the interaction.

Customers baffled as Citrix forces password changes for document-slinging Sharefile outfit


Question about weak passwords

I'm a bit confused about the reasoning behind forcing password changes leading to weaker passwords. If it's only x number of users doing so and making garbage passwords/not using password managers (or company or whatever not providing them), isn't only that single user being effected, or does that become other people's issue as well? If you change out the locks on a door every month, and the person with the key keeps taping it to the same door that's locked, is it the locks fault the door got open by somebody who shouldn't have opened it? If I sell really sharp utility knives to people, do I have to hire people to go and put helmets on users before they start trying to hold the knives with their mouths? I think it's fair to allow for the assumption of a bit of responsibility to the user.

YouTube supremo says vid-streaming-slash-piracy giant can't afford EU's copyright overhaul


Re: So what?

I wholeheartedly agree! I can't wait for the day where I can just pick up my stuff and leave, or when I can get my groceries delivered so I don't have to even bother with the headache of a store!
