No, you really don't. Encryption is good for Facebook, but enforcing it for your Internet-of-Everything lightbulb or temperature probe in the basement gains nothing other than more complex bugs and lower battery life.
arent these the exact situations where encryption is necessary? i dont want someone sniffing the plain text credentials of my fridge as they fly through the air and then turning the temperature up to 40
Anyone keeping coins in an exchange for any longer than necessary to exchange them is an idiot.
Or a day trader

my very non technical mate got a sony vaio flip thing 10 days or so ago with windows 8 installed. he LOVES it, despite complaining non stop, it also auto updated itself this week, i think to 8.1, he certainly didnt do any registry hacks but had a text rendering issue with chrome that is apparently an issue caused by 8.1?
ive had a play and i dont really see the problem, sure its a bit different but its not a world ending calamity, i do prefer my mac tho
I'm 31 and seriously looking into getting out of software development.
It was cool when I was 14. It was still doable when I was 23. Now it's soul-crushing.
I wish I was a farmer or a carpenter.
oh god this is me so much, 34 and need to get out before i kill myself or actually have a heart attack
Dude there are Mclaren MP4s for sale for Bitcoins, people are buying land and mansions with them, you can get takeaways delivered, bars and restaurants accept them, other than gas/water/electric youre basically set. Converting $500M bitcoin to cash is MASSIVELY short sighted.
You could just take them and probably live off them in an extremely luxurious lifestyle, or at the same time you could sell 1 or 2 a day which wouldnt move the market at all giving you both an awesome life style and cold hard cash.
is this the same as the other self organizing investigation that tracked the silk road bitcoins to bitstamp?
So if we can get this thread out of the Firehose, I was thinking that, as the 10th arrives for us in our respective locations, we could leave here what may be our final farewells to Slashdot.
Until Midnight, this is our meeting place, our City Hall, our town square.
(and yes, our playground)
After that I'm not sure where we can congregate to discuss how the Slashcott's going and whether it's time to move on.
I'm going to jump the gun and lay claim to "So long and thanks for all the Karma", and perhaps someone could do a Bob Hope and re-write the lyrics to "Thanks for the Memories".
In the meantime, a bit of housekeeping.
An AC beat me to the week-long boycott idea by a couple of hours, and suggested the date range of the 10th through the 17th.
As part of a group of people familiar with the concept of beginning a count with 0 instead of 1, I really should have spotted the mistake of putting 8 days into that particular week.
So, should Slashcott Week end as the 17th begins, or do we give Dice a bonus day?"
Qsymia and Belviq work by suppressing appetite and by increasing metabolism, and by other mechanisms that are not yet fully understood
shucks, ive no idea, either that or because someone is paying someone else more for something else
This is exactly why it's the only government in the world I'd trust to obey the law.
best troll ever?
