story is that one of juniper's major partners was underhandedly selling prerelease, demo, & beta products to cisco. while legal, it's shady as fuck, and is almost certainly something that would have pissed juniper off to the point of severing ties with the vendor.
you have a very narrow definition of what 'hacking' is. i disagree, and the mods seem to agree with me.
what these kids did definitely qualifies as hacking.
taking apart a transistor radio to figure out how it works, and putting it back together, is hacking.
talking someone into giving you their password over the phone, is hacking. (yes, it's social engineering. that's a form of hacking.)
there are very many other, very wildly different examples i could give if i had the desire.
it's an umbrella term. deal with it.
they were inquisitive, did some research, and experimented on a system, and succeeded in gaining unauthorized access. they then responsibly reported their findings to the device owner.
what these kids did, while perhaps not quite on par with hacking the gibson, still very much represents the (white hat) hacker ethos at work.
you, on the other hand, represent the asshat ethos, for downplaying what they did and trying to fiddle fart around with semantics.
then they're fucked.
seriously, what a terrible idea.
yes, all three substances affect the body quite differently if you take an up-close look at their chemical mechanisms. however that is completely tangential to the point i was making, or the post i was replying to.
read the post i was responding to again, and see if you can't grok my meaning.
let me introduce you to this little drug called 'alcohol', and his friends caffeine & nicotine
nah, the legs have great shock absorbers built in, i'm good.
You can keep your puny mortal flesh. I'll take the robot legs that can jump 20 feet and run 40mph, the robot fingers that can type 500wpm, the robot eyes that have infrared and ultraviolet vision and a heads-up display, etc etc etc...
the problem is when they get hacked, they aren't going to get rid of their machines or go offline.
they will just become one more in the zombie army, and the REST of us end up suffering.
Microsoft is doing the right thing here.
yeah, seems pretty unlikely that we would have both a storm AND a power outage at the same time! those things never go hand in hand!
what common core are YOU talking about?
so, to start with, the common core doesn't even have a required reading list, it leaves it open to schools to select.
ALSO, their 'sample texts' to help teachers out, do include plenty of classics! it SPECIFICALLY MENTIONS shakespeare in the wiki blurb!
so, you're doubly wrong. wtf, bro?
you did, in fact, say this:
When you're sick enough to (feel you) need medication, stay at home. Don't spread germs all over the workplace / auditorium / public mass transport.
Nice idea, but almost useless....
which is quite clearly false. staying home while you are sick is far from useless, it very clearly does cut down on the amount of germs you are spreading by a large margin. you cannot completely eliminate the spread of germs, but you can affect it greatly, and should do so.
