Ahh, the good ol' CADT model of development.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Given that such things already exist at phone companies, I would say yes.
It's not in the same vein of "listen in to feed you ads" but it's still listening in nonetheless. The phone companies even get paid for providing such services to government agencies.
"I never worked in a company with normal people."
I'm guessing you haven't had the pleasure of working in the typical firm where the company's years-old ENTIRE lifetime of work and data is passed around e-mail as a 80MB Excel attachment.
His point was that industry systems in the US (and outside of Iran) are also prone to attack, and that it's not just some security paranoia that the site manager could just brush off so he can get to the admin controls via Remote Desktop.
You're just one step closer to the dystopian future of the all-despising baby skull: http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=2490
It's not like anybody clicks the link anyway.
For videos that do not allow skipping, its more time efficient to flip to a different window while the ad plays.
Screw that, I'll just not watch it or watch the 5 or so reuploads that are suggested to me on the sidebar.
Iraq on the other hand wasn't attached to China, and didn't have a comeback during the war where MacArthur got too close to China and nearly got chased out of the country for it.
Others are college student roboteers, working on their entry in a regional IEEE robotics contest.
Seriously, it's "roboticist". How can you screw that up? You're a goddamn editor.
Next thing you know, you'll be calling coders "Programeers" because they work on programs.
Switching to DVDs probably just encourages bloat (e.g. GNOME3) when there are plenty of usable alternatives that fit current restrictions.
Automatically switching constraints to fit inside the next largest available media is like buying pants with larger and larger waists as you grow fatter and fatter. Sure, sometimes you need to actually get bigger pants (e.g. during a growth spurt when you're 12) but there comes a time when what you have is going to be good enough for a loooooong time (or at least, should be).
You don't see people yelling at others for wanting to fit in the pants they've been wearing for a while. Why is optical media any different? If your installer and default desktop environment is too big to fit in 700MB of space, then somebody's (or some bodies are) doing it wrong.
It's not just about constraints in resources, it's about the principle: I want my pants to fit forever, and so does Debian.
The trapped cops were getting plenty of food and water throughout the ordeal. They were essentially jailed...in the pit.
Make sure to balance your diet so that you don't suffer from Rabbit starvation
The best way to fix the PHP problem at this point is to make the alternatives so outstanding that the choice of the better hammer becomes obvious.
I think he's proposing that somebody starts a marketing campaign to trick/convince all the PHP developers to switch to something better because clearly, Outstanding = Great PR.
I hear that this Streisand guy does a great job of bringing things to the attention of the general public; he'd be perfect for the job.
Humans make mistakes, robots should not.
In English, we have a fallacy: "If you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to fear from our snooping. Thus, it's okay to snoop on your communication channels."
