MythBuster's is so full of junk science that I feel dumber after watching an episode and find myself wondering things like the will the great ball of fire in the sky rise tomorrow and is the earth flat.
Intent is the only difference between much of this "malware" and enterprise wide desktop management tools installed with the
#1 the companies want a glut of workers so they can pay them nothing and use them as tools discarding when completed.
#2 Women being slightly smarter than men don't WANT to go into an industry built on virtual slavery and worker abuse. In general they aren't as flexible or willing to commit as much to a career given the option of a family, there are of course exceptions everywhere, but as long as the IT industry is run like a feudal system that thrives on worker sacrifice it is unlikely to achieve a balance of genders. You can't hire those who don't apply, and you can't force women into a educational course they don't want to pursue.
So this is what Phillips is doing with the extra billions they are getting in profit and kick-backs from hugely over-priced LED light upgrades forced on people.
At what point do you think raising and monitoring a 3 yr. old ISN'T a full time job ???? I'd imagine the lady is looking forward to getting back to work and getting some rest. As for going back into computing and programming I can't blame her, the industry SUCKS. IT companies expect you to give them your entire life while they lowball your salary, try and get you to work overtime for free, biatch and moan when you take your vacation days, and generally take advantage of you as much as possible, while complaining all the time that you cost too much and always looking for a way to cut people rather than produce a superior product.
The key would be transparency or the lack thereof. If I could access the same source data base as the government is using I'd really have very little problem with this.
A storm trooper is unlikely to be a US citizen, and should be treated as a hostile combatant/invader at the very least.
The empire must be stopped at all costs....
This has happened several times already. A 9 year old sporting a very realistic looking CO2 pellet gun was killed a couple of years ago, and a bank robber dressed a sawed off shotgun up as a super soaker. The key is don't wave anything around that can be misinterpreted as weapon, people have no common sense and the cops will arrest anyone for anything and then let the DA decide whether to press charges.
He wrote about teens jumping in front of convoys of automated big rigs a long time ago, out of sheer boredom and an innate desire to cause chaos. Even in Methuselah's Children the long lived had methods of switching off auto drive to avoid being tracked everywhere at all times. It has been pointed out previously what about people on farms driving completely off the grid, not to mention the totally unresolved issue of whose at fault when my auto drive car is involved in an accident, or the choice HAS to be made between saving MY life, the driver or some stranger on the side of the road who wants to commit suicide by being run over...
Now I can finally snort whiskey and drink coke...

Or will this protocol go into a decline marked by drastically slowed development, fewer bug fixes, and greater security risks for the computers that use it? The question hinges to a surprising degree on the personal finances of a 59-year-old technologist in Talent, Ore., named Harlan Stenn.
