I generally live software updates. They usually result in a faster, more stable, now secure system. But a bad patch can be a huge problem best avoided. I do note with interest Microsoft appear to have a history of bad patches on the previous versions of Windows and the answer is often to upgrade to the latest version. This is one of the many reasons why I now tend to avoid Windows completely but for one "legacy" machine. I'm waiting for 64-bit Android. Shouldn't be long now.
If the "we" is a government, then be VERY afraid. Examples are legion, but one need go no further than the CIA report to see governments happily break the law to Torrie or kill. They do it in secret and avoid being accountable when caught. Sound reasons for fear are obvious to anyone paying attention.
You haven't been paying attention. Power utilities are lobbying state legislators to make generating power at home illegal. They are terrified.
I totally agree. The same goes for "internships". They are just stealing from kids.
There is so much you clearly don't understand... And I doubt explaining it to you will change that.
Market forces are wonderful when they work to the advantage of employers. But when they work to the advantage of employees, the employers get legislators to change the rules and tilt the playing playing field so employers have the advantage again. They corrupt the market. . Join a union. There really is no other way in the long run. Show your kids you love them and secure THEIR future.
Agreed. New Zealand auctioned off frequency and the result was expensive services few could use as frequency holders tried to recover the cost of the frequency. Auctions are stupid. Just allocate the frequency, then tax the resulting business.
The "bullshit" is the ideas that shape our world. No wonder America is a mess.
The French are informed thinking citizens of a lively democracy. Americans are too often none of those things. The French aren't snobs. They are doing what Americans SHOULD be doing for America to function well.....
No crime has been proven.
He complied with the DCMA. MegaUpload was no more responsible for what users upload than YouTube or Tumbr. But he wasn't located in the US, so couldn't be co-opted by state security agencies. So they shut him down.
I totally agree. Kim Dotcom is living in the same house he lived in before the New Zealand police invaded his house at the behest of American authorities. Hardly a "fugitive".
With Cisco involved, it would be inevitable. The only way to get this done securely would be locate it outside the United States and Five Eyes defacto police states. But then you risk being Kim Dotcom-ed.
If you encrypt your e-mail prior to sending, sure. But SSL and TLS aren't part of your e-mail. They components of the system for transmitting your email. Not part of the message you wrote.
I've found that walking is a great way to maximize privacy. Anyone can do it and there is no regulatory oversight. A hat with a wide brim, or a hoody, reduces the chance of one's face being caught on street surveillance cameras. If everyone wore hats, they wouldn't be necessarily be distinctive, either. Just buy the hat everyone else buys. If you live near where you work, walking is a great option.
