I can't argue with religious zealots.
I'm the one who provided evidence, you're the one spweing nothing but insults and empty rhetoric. And you thinl I'm the zealot??
Richard Stallman must be turning in his grave.
Curious, because you seem like a native English speaker, what exactly do you think the word 'grave' means?
There's a market for truly secure though. There's a very big market in fact.
"Truly free" is a necessary, but not sufficient precondition for "truly secure". This device would probably fine, and perhaps close to ideal, for an airgapped CA.
I'm suspicious of the firmware on the battery, though...
(I have two kids in elementary school dealing with the whole Common Core/EngageNY/high stakes testing nonsense so I know first-hand what this is doing to our kids and teachers.
I don't know NY specifically, but every 'common core' exam I've looked at so far has questions so simple that kids should be learning them without too much trouble....
I met some kids from Japan who swore they were bad at math. Then I found out they'd gone through calculus in High School. We're not exactly pushing the envelope with what we're requiring kids to learn.....
Don't be silly, it is precisely that capability which the carriers want to eliminate.
Yeah, if *you're* not controlling the access to the SIM module, then *somebody else* is. If anybody can think of a secure way to make this happen without the user losing control, please leave a comment.
Since it's public key, you can send them any message you like without being too suspicious. Then you'd need to listen in on their PC.
The US federal government is constitutionally restricted from anything that can't be interpreted as an income tax (so my VAT suggestion fails as well).
No it's not. The 16th amendment authorized an income tax, but it's not like the feds subsisted off donations before that. Besides, when was the last time the federal government was meaningfully constrained by the limitations supposedly imposed on it by the constitution?
I'm the IT guy who blocks ipads from updating when school is in session because we are in a rural location. 3mbps is the best WAN we can buy. Devices can update after hours just fine. We do this with our router (DDWRT) by blocking MESU.APPLE.COM
Many guests bring in Windows 7 laptops, and I want to welcome them, but not their updates.
How can I block updates on Android Phones and Linux Laptops?
I have a 4G device at home, and I'd like to apply the same tricks 24 hours a day so that I don't use up the bandwith from my vendor. And my many home visitors should have their updates blocked.
Ending tax evasion would be easy -- just tax nothing but land. I mean, good luck hiding that, right?
This is reminiscent of how bills in Congress are really decided in committee, with the floor speeches just meant to impress the suckers back home.
Agreed. It's worth noting that practically everything decent on the net started out too small to absorb even one such bug bounty.
Would the first www browser have even made it into the wild if it carried that liability? I doubt it. Even if it did, Apache probably wouldn't have gotten far enough to form a foundation around it.
Next up, who pays when the bug is at the protocol level (such as the pizza thief vulnerability in FTP)? The IETF? Surely we can't fairly charge a company that faithfully implemented the protocol.
What if the software isn't produced by a corporation? Surely a use at your own risk pile of code on github shouldn't be subject to this?
Little by little, we are making enemies of the world, and until we change our ways
There's little reason for the world to believe in any change until we change our form of governance. Yeah, yeah, the GOP & Dems will give the issue lip service, but it'll be just like Obama's campaign promises unless the system itself gets an overhaul. The current system will provide current results.
...I don't think the death of privacy and commercialization of human relationships was worth it.
Any commercial product for which you don't have access to source code is an integration and performance risk.
So true, I've run into the same problem. It doesn't mean you need to only use GPL, but you should try to get the source code when you sign the contract to use the product (you're probably paying enough, anyway).
