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).
The most common location of the cameras was the U.S., but many others were accessed from South Korea, China, Mexico, the UK, Italy, and France, among others. Some are from businesses, and some are from personal residences. Particularly alarming was the number of camera feeds of sleeping babies, which people often set up to protect them, but, being unaware of the risks, don't change the username or password from the default options that came with the cameras.
It's not the first time this kind of issue has come to light. In September 2013, the FTC cracked down on TRENDnet after its unsecured cameras were found to be accessible online. But the Russian site accesses cameras from several manufacturers, raising some new questions — why are strong passwords not required for these cameras? And, once this becomes mandatory, what can be done about the millions of unsecured cameras that remain live in peoples' homes?"

5'6"1/2 is plenty readable to me. That's 1689mm. Both are 4 digits long. I don't see a clear advantage of using mm.
There are advantages if you are ever doing any calculations on that number, say divide it by three for example.
Also, since you were fine in rounding the distance to half an inch (~12.5 mm), why would you not round the metric number to whole centimeters (10 mm)? That would make it a nice 169 cm. Three digits, and all in the same unit!
Well, if you insist on calling both the kernel and the distributions for "Linux" you are going to have to be perfectly clear on what you are talking about if you want to avoid misunderstandings.
I think you misunderstand the controversy about GNU/Linux. Noone is saying that the kernel in question should be called GNU/Linux. Stallman, however, insists that distributions should be called GNU/Linux when appropriate, which I think the GP was referring to.
Linus Torvalds is much more productive than you. He uses Linux. You should definitely switch.
To be fair, Linus Torvalds uses a MacBook Air. Though he probably has linux on it.
The increased address space is not the important part of the ARMv8 64-bit architecture in this case.
Instead it has twice the number of general purpose registers (31) with twice the size (64 bit) than that of the previous ARMv7 architecture. It also has 32 x 128 bit vector registers, which again is doubled. This allows for more data being processed at the same time, and also saves a bit on memory accesses, which are horribly slow. There are also other improvements such as built in AES encrypting and SHA hashing instructions.
They don't last more than a few months for me. I'm on my fifth pair. And they charge me 25 fucking pounds for each replacement. And they sound terrible.
Just out of curiosity, why do you keep buying them?
You are of course correct. They use the "device attached" pin of the USB port with a specific resistor to switch the USB data lines into two analog audio outs.
While this is a cool hack, it still suffers from a few limitations that the apple dock connector doesn't have. It can't do analog in at the same time (think microphone input for a car handsfree), or video, or simultaneous USB data transfer, to name a few things.
Also, this is not part of the USB standard, which means the cable only works with certain phone models, and can actually make other devices misbehave. Try connecting a Galaxy Nexus to that cable.
Yes, but you can't do analog audio over micro USB. It is not the same thing. Making a sound-dock for USB is much more complex and expensive.
That would be Mountain Lion of course...
You can resize by dragging the top edge in OS X Snow Lion. I'm not sure if it's new for this version though.
