Comment: Re:Would YOU want a camera on you all day? (Score 1) 294 294

No one should expect privacy of any kind at work while they are doing their jobs. It doesn't matter if you want a camera on you or not, if your are at work and doing your job, the camera should not matter. If your are on your lunch break, that is the only time you should expect some privacy, but during the rest of the day it shouldn't matter. You are being paid to do a job, and if your employer wants to put up one of even a hundred cameras to make sure your doing it, then that is their prerogative. The cameras shouldn't matter unless they physically get in the way of what your doing, anyone that cares about the more about the cameras than making sure the job gets done right, you probably don't want to have as an employee anyway.

I could almost understand if this guy was frustrated because he found exploits and then tried to go to Boeing/Airbus and then got stonewalled. My next step would just be to go to some news outlet, they would pick up a story about planes not being safe in a second, not scare the shit out of everyone on a plane that your on.

Ok, so what do you you expect the police to do? They got a call of a bomb threat with hostages, I think they did the right thing. If they send in one untrained patrol cop, and it was real and everyone gets killed, then everyone would be saying they didn't do enough. They called in people that are trained to handle these situations.

So they are trying to say we can play the next Halo or Assassins creed game on the xbox, then jump to pc or phone. Realistically that's never going to happen, what will happen is you can take the companion app that alot of games have now, and write that to every platform, so you can run them anywhere. Games that a great on one platform NEVER translate well to a different one, a game that is great on your 5 in phone, will suck ass while playing it on the xbox, and vise versa.
