This has been going on a long time in China, though there the troll workplaces are decentralized and the pay's a lot lower.
Like most recent technical advances, this is merely a corollary of pre-existing xkcd research.
Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see why EFF wanted to develop even an Android app. If they wanted to "make it easier for people to take action on digital rights issues using their phone", why not write an HTML5 website? Is there some performance issue that would outweigh the simplicity of a single codebase and the assurance that as soon as they updated the site it would be up to date for all users?
So the vulnerability is in some component that's present only in server versions of Windows. On machines running client versions of Windows, there's no urgency about this.
“If the driver becomes inattentive or begins to drift off to sleep, it will alert you.”
Doesn't find it, sad to say.
Then why is it ever possible to swat a fly?
Not there. Oh, well, T-Mobile tends to be slow to push things at iPhone users. In my book, they're still a better deal than ATT, though. Thanks for the info!
What do the options look like? (I'm up to date on iOS 6.x.)
Not that I'm complaining, of course, but I never got the alert, and I live right across the street from NYC's Office of Emergency Management. I'm curious about why my phone never got the message, because who knows, I might want to get alerted the next time something like Sandy blows into town.
Speaking of Sandy, I did receive a text message alert or 2 during the storm, which presumably means my phone is capable of getting the messages. Could the reason be that I switched carriers around New Year's? (ATT to T-Mobile, if it matters.)
It may be obvious, but it's important: this is an issue only if you use IE.
Exactly. And if automakers fail to sell many distractive subsystems, maybe they should rejoice, for that means fewer lawsuits from the survivors of distracted-driving crash victims in the future.
It's only metadata, isn't it?
Sigmund Freud said, "The first human who hurled an insult instead of a stone was the founder of civilization."
That's Cayman as in Cayman Islands, right?
