The scanners should have never reviled naked pictures either even a mac quadra from 1992 is fast enough to identify and remove any reflection that is from flesh in real time leaving the contra ban seemingly floating in the air. That just showed how shady the companies that make these scanners are since they'd sent them out with completely unfinished software that's not even beta level.
That actually might work.
Lets just disband the TSA already and let travelers choose the level of security the wish to have. Seriously you're more likely to die slipping in the shower,on the drive up there,by insect stings or bites, or even falling out of bed then by international terror.
Modern US copyright law at best can be described as a sick joke created by greed. The 1790 copyright law of 14 years with plus the option for a 14 year renewal for a total of 28 was and still is more then sufficient. For example George Lucas still would have became a multimillionaire even if Starwars became public domain after 28 years. But sadly it was slowly extended by publishing companies and then in 1976 was outright highjacked by Hollywood.
Most big companies do steal ideas.
I think those who have charged Swartz should get the firing squad for commingling the highest level of treason against the American people. What they do is actually worse then what drug dealers and terrorist do.
The US justice system if you can call it that has become a shame and an embarrassment. The founding fathers must be spinning in their graves over what the US has become.
Agreed this whole case reeks of the worst kind of corruption there is.
These are trumped up charges as he was accessing something the should be free to all of human kind.
What's to up front cost in the US the carriers use the data plan with actually cost them next to nothing to implement on top of voice to subsidize the phone. Yes you can get a Lumia for $50,A Galaxy for $100, a Pantec for free or an Iphone for $100 but it's with a two year plan. If you buy the phone outright no plan you end up seeing the true price of the device which is usually $300 to $500 of course if you do this you should not have to buy a tiered data plan as it's cost is to subsidize the phone.
A 1GHz cpu is hardly Jurassic it would have been a top of the line phone processor just a few years ago. The iphone 4 only had a 1Ghz cpu. Now the ram is very limited but S40 does not need much memory.
When you think about it the lines between a feature phone and a smart phone are very blurred. I guess you could make the call that a true smart phone allows native OS apps like the Lumia or N9 and a feature phone only allows java apps.
I was thinking the same thing.
That's one less patent troll company in this world a crap more load of them to go.
Or hacking UAVs. A hacker could crash the one of the predators US customs uses for border patrol into a building.
