They got a photo of it already.
FTA, the car owner said she set "the timer" to start charging at midnight. Where is this timer, in the car or on the charger connection? Maybe she is using one of those $4 light timers. Does anyone know if the Tesla can turn on its own charging system at some designated time? For that matter, how does the Tesla know what time it is? The fire department might be familiar with historic causes of fires, but (1) hardly any fireman knows anything about electricity as such, and (2) they could scarcely know anything about garage fires associated with electric cars, since so far we only know of somewhere in the vicinity of one happening.
My Ford PHEV does this, one presumes the Tesla can as well. Rates are cheaper at midnight, so it's a common feature in PHEVs and EVs.
Cars have relatively advanced computers these days, and one of the things those computers contain is a clock.
I think they should just throw/burn the private key away, and let those coins join the mass of other coins that were lost by early adopters.
That'd be stupid. Keeping it away would have the same effect (getting the coins out of circulation) while allowing them to use the bitcoins in the future if they so desire. Or maybe they'll give the bitcoins to the CIA, who could start paying terrorists (I mean, freedom fighters) with bitcoins instead of dollars.
Or dump them en masse on the exchanges, sit back, and watch Bitcoin destroy itself.
You and I pay about $5 for a ethernet cable off of Newegg.com, the government pays $150 for that same 6ft cable.
So that $10 million works out to a whopping dozen computer systems at government purchase rates.
The government doesn't actually pay exorbitant amounts of money for things. They need to buy something for $150 but don't want anyone to know they've bought it, or they have exhausted their budget allocation for that particular widget, or they want to bypass a lengthy approval process, so they just claim it's something else instead.
with companies less profitable than google?
Mac's are expensive
most people don't own Mac's personally
lots of people use personal computers to VPN to work
how would it work with the files on file servers people use to get work done? like MS Access databases?
About 30% of the folks in my company run Macs. In terms of sheer numbers not as many as Google but still multiple tens of thousands of users. We do use Microsoft's productivity suite extensively but use native versions of Office where we can, and Windows in a VM where we can't. I can't remember the last time I had to fire up my VM, though. The native VPN client works great, and I can also natively access CIFS file shares just fine.
Completely agreed on the unreasonable extremes people go to when they say correlation is not causation. By their logic, smoking does not cause cancer and asprin does not reduce fever. Just because we can't fully explain the connection between A and B does not mean one doesn't exist.
Already ONE single bitcoin is worth over $1000, so how do they get a total market cap of just $1300???
Obviously they are referring to the value of a single Bitcoin. Although that still doesn't explain their math.
Death for Stealing a truck.
that's not poetic justice, or poetic, or justice.
Poetic justice would have been if the truck they stole had been stolen and they got pulled over because of the first theft.
I"m more worried about the scum that thing Justice for stealing a truck is death then I am about people who steal trucks.
Please learn to apply critical thinking skills to you're current mode of what I will generously call thinking.
You forgot the bit where they beat the shit out of the drivers. Not saying that evens things out, but this wasn't exactly a harmless little crime.
Just because they do things you don't agree with doesn't mean they aren't activists. Being an activist, criminal, and "asshat" are not mutually exclusive and depending on your viewpoint a lot of activists are asshats. I'm sure that in the US there were some white southerners who considered MLK Jr. to be an asshat. Lot's of people consider Greenpeace and PETA to be both activists and asshats. Lots of people consider the ACLU to be activists and asshats. Lots of people dont.
How many of those you named in comparison specifically and exclusively use only illegal methods to attempt to further their causes?
The objective here isn't to punish anyone proportionally to the crimes they committed. The whole point of online activists having the book thrown at them is to deter future activists.
The corporations already feel like meatspace activists have too many rights, so it is imperative to set a precedent that online activism will be dealt with harshly.
Have we established the Anonymous are activists? They call themselves activists, but their actions are those of a bunch of asshats who believed that if enough asshats do their asshattery in unison none of them will be caught and punished. I have a hard time telling the difference between Anonymous and 4chan.
so... how well does it pay at Ogilvy & Mather?
I've no idea, since I'm not a professional idiot. How is the amateur circuit going for you?
If they were only trolling posters on the Facebook page, how would they figure out their IP addresses? Impossible unless they hacked into Facebook.
The article is crap. It's basically a bunch of unsubstantiated allegations without even a shred of evidence. It's possible BP did the things they claim, but I cannot fathom why they would. Delete comments, sure, but threaten bodily harm? What would be the point?
please.... home clouds can be just as much a proof of concept as an enterprise cloud. how much do you put into it is what counts
Shirley you can't be serious.
You steal my personal data, sell it to someone else who uses that data to commit crimes, you are a dangerous person.
Your data is not personal if it has ever been shared outside of machines you own. If your data can be used by someone else to harm you or others, then the insecure system is what is dangerous, not the alleged criminal. We're going to have to come around and face the facts. It's not the hackers that are misunderstood: People don't understand the nature of information.
Data wants to be stolen! Just look at the way it's dressed!
So they're getting crowd-funded money to do all their testing to ensure no one can see the NSA's back doors they have in place.
So what's your answer? Everyone just does their own code review?
