Should I click this link? Could be a clever way to goatse people...or have I become paranoid?
Kids don't need to be taught to code - not because they're too young to learn (I was coding since I was maybe 10 years old?) but because there's already a glut of coders in the workforce. The shortage was a now well-understood hoax made by a few US tech companies who employ coders.
Agreed. A while ago there was a big stink kicked up locally because a government official's mistress was about to fly in but his wife found out and was going to catch her, so he called the customs officials and had the mistress held at the airport and then deported to keep his affair under wraps (or at least keep the wife and mistress from meeting). The mistress had no idea why she was being held at the time. Officially it just looks like she was held and deported for no good reason at best - or profiling at worst.
Of course in a small community, it's not in the news even though everybody knows it, on paper it's "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil."
Aaron Swartz thought the same thing...
I can't imagine this OS has anything resembling libraries or runtimes on it...one of those cheapass modems you can telnet into will seem luxurious in comparison. How much need will there be for an OS like this in the future when you can already run a full desktop OS on a $25 single-board computer?
There's no way to initially cross an airgap with sound, you'd have to first infect the computer with the software needed to communicate with sound via some other means, and then you could use sound to establish a connection to a computer that's believed to be airgapped.
If technology like this is included with an OS by default, and it doesn't require user action to allow data to be received and approved before taking any action with it (I'm looking at you, phones with NFC), that could change.
If anyone thinks the FBI and NSA aren't monitoring in detail, they're a total moron. The FBI is known to monitor things much less criminal and obvious than this, and the NSA is watching by default even if they didn't mean to in the first place.

Definitely gotta order me one of these, once I save up all that money.
Awesome sig/bumper sticker material here!
Sure, not all water-drinkers are murderers, but all murderers are water-drinkers. I recommend you stop drinking this awful poison that causes people to kill!
You assume that not being officially poor means you're doing OK - it doesn't. In fact, a single person can make as little as $11k per year, and a couple as little as $15k without being categorized as poor in the US:
That's not the kind of money that could make people think the Republicans might better serve their interests. And for the purpose of this argument (at least), it doesn't matter if poor Americans aren't starving like poor Chinese or Brazilians - they're not making good money:
You're obviously doing quite well for yourself though, if you think this is a planning and budgeting problem.
I am not suggesting that the torrent traffic would go through the darknet
Why not? Torrent traffic is bad for Tor, but it works fine on I2P.
It sort of already is, so if the
Came here to say this, and you said it quite well. Millennials will never have the money to make voting Republican look like anything approaching a decent idea, so most are going to be Leftists 4 Lyfe. There's a downside to impoverishing a whole generation that the conservatives didn't see coming.
You know it's bad when Bitcoin looks like a better alternative! O_O
