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).
A book has better real estate than a phone. A book has absolutely, non-figuratively, zero UI lag. A book is lightweight, portable, you can drop it on concrete from 10ft and you don't need to stress over keeping track of a valuable. It's paper, it's worthless.
It's hard to resist the temptation to jump shit when GUI devs dick around with faders and sliders and icon bullshit, and endless bloat. And then it's menus within menus of navigation - we pound the life out of hotkeys and shortcuts to get around it.
Any content left in place continues to benefit its original purpose.
Content isn't meant to benefit the public. It's meant to benefit consumers.
Any content removed will, of course, serve no purpose whatsoever.
So far, these observations extend to any silenced content, not just adult. Mark Twain said "Censorship is telling a man he can't have steak because a baby can't chew it."
That said, Google has the right to censor what they own. Yes, it's "censorship", and it's quite allowed and legal. It might not be "right", but at least in this case we're not losing anything that's very exclusive - to most of us, pr0n is pr0n.
Source: Local district IT, already seeing them give iPrices the finger, but not looking forward to endless hours of scut work that will result from deploying everyone's new chromebooks.
And yet, it's still better than the current leading motive for "art".
It's no wonder there's so much effort in owning TOR nodes and branding it a pedorist tool. The number of people who use TOR has increased, yes, but more dramatic is the ballooning number of people aware (and interested). Say what you will about his patriotism (or lack) but Snowden got a lot of people covering up the red blinky weakspots they didn't know they had.
* Text-to-link (or something like that) or any other equivalent that will grab URLs and hyperlink them. You should (as always) double-check the actual destination of a weird link/post/message.
* Text-to-image (or something like that) is a toss-up. Any direct IMG link will be displayed in-page (handy on forums), but sometimes it makes layouts look a little awkward. You can blacklist sites (use wildcard) or pages from triggering it.
* Used to have one that would try to capture text fields (like the post I'm writing) and would allow for some historical fetching, like if your browser crashes or a Next Page load fails. L*S did one gag dedicated to just this. Might want to check the fine boilerplate (I didn't) or just skip it if you're super-tinfoil, seeing captures of yourself can feel uncanny. Some of you may already be in the habit of clipboard/notepad dumping for safety, but consider that automation is consistent.
Echoing on NoScript and RequestPolicy, they're privacy tweaks but also improve safety. After whitelists are done, page layout and even load times can improve. Take control of what your machines accesses.
Maybe he's heard that without exclusive skills, he'll end up in terrafoam someday, so he's decided to try and buy a ticket from the diploma printers, and trying to scrape together at least SOME of the gouging education costs (which have long since skyrocketed past "easily afforded with a 20h/wk part-time") rather than become another sucker hooked by the predatory student loan system.
Is there anything for this guy to do? We're already post-labor. We don't pay shit for "labor". There are no ditch diggers. Even those burgers he's flipping, he's only paid because he has the "skills" required for a warm body to deliver a result. The warm body itself is worthless.
Is there anything for this guy to do? He has a few options today, but the moment a robo-cook's cost ticks under his $8/hr or whatever? The existence of that job will evaporate. Globally. "Overnight", if you will.
Is there anything for this guy to do? There's a lot of naive posts saying "There will be jobs" with examples like fucking scientist. We have an ideal, motivated homo sapien right here, eager to work and rearing to go, and no robo-owner will look twice because nothing he does is worth money.
We're in tech, we've got some of the best tickets for The Ark, but we're not going to need ten billion robot repairmen.
Not bad for a 3D-printing article,
The Canary Watch site is the work of the EFF, the Berkman Center for Internet and Society and NYU’s Technology Law and Policy Center and it works on a simple concept. The site maintains a list of all of the known warrant canaries and periodically checks each organization’s site to see whether the canary is still there and then lists any changes to the status.
Right now, Canary Watch lists 11 organizations, including Lookout, Pinterest, Reddit and Tumblr.
“Canarywatch lists the warrant canaries we know about, tracks changes or disappearances of those canaries, and allows users to submit canaries not listed on the site. For people with interest in a particular canary, the site will show any changes we know about,” Nadia Kayyali of the EFF said in a blog post."
If a mob (wearing dust masks) bodily plants you outside the city limits and says "Keep out!" then we'll intervene. Maybe.
I wanted to suggest that behind the he-said-she-said, the kid was probably showing off the book (the page*, even to some kids, like other generations did with dad's nudiemags or a Sear's catalog lying around. Which, again, tell the kid off and send parents a note to also tell the kid off.

And looking at it, you can tell their fascination was with something weird and exotic, kind of like telling Billy that one secret word that my dad muttered and it made uncle Joe gasp and I think it's a bad word and I don't actually know what "vagina" means but I'm gonna whisper it to Billy and we're gonna giggle cluelessly at something that we can at least tell is foreign and taboo and that makes it AWESOME nervous giggle goes here now keep your voice down Billy.
titor ur such a n00b learnto4D already
Or they actually CAN break in and this is all elaborate fakery.
