One of my aleph_null rules of life: "If the answer doesn't matter, don't ask the question."
Every kid goes through weird phases like that. They'll outgrow it in a month or so.
There's a huge difference between a big boat trailer behind a pickup truck and a small generator behind a Tesla. With decent instrumentation and driver assist the Tesla will practically drive itself. Imagine cameras on the trailer and angle sensors in the hitch, with on-screen instructions telling you which way to turn the wheel as you back up around a corner or into a parking space. Piece of cake, even for a "guy with a midlife crisis."
Backing up a trailer isn't rocket science; you just have to be careful and overcome your natural tendency to turn the wrong way. If you're telling the truth about your hobby you know full well that most people even manage a boat trailer on a ramp with no backup cameras without incident.
4K UHD has nothing to do with horizontal resoution. 4K is because its exactly 4 x 1080p tiled 2 by 2. (see how the FHD fits exactly 4x into UHD).
That makes no sense whatsoever, and is also wrong. Following the first link in the wikipedia article you cited, we find this: "4K resolution, also called 4K, refers to a display device or content having horizontal resolution on the order of 4,000 pixels."
Do you blame the meteorologist when you don't like the weather? Do you blame the dealer when you don't like the cards? People are illogical that way.

This is some crappy proprietary firmware library for very low cost network devices. As TFA mentions, we can expect a lot more of these vulnerabilities in the "IoT".
Putting the checksum right next to the binary on the download server only helps to check for bitrot in the download. It does nothing whatsoever to establish provenance of the binary, since whoever put the binary there could generate their own checksum from it. You need a checksum or signature that is more trustworthy than the binary in order to verify it.
It would be nice if every publisher would sign every downloadable blob, and the OS maintainers would countersign the true public keys for all popular projects. Then we wouldn't have to care about whether we're downloading from an "official" site or not.
Using spinning media for proper backups is almost impossible. See http://www.taobackup.com/
There is nothing in that story to suggest that HDDs are considered inappropriate for backup media. What is your theory? I've used HDDs for deduplicating daily snapshots for the last 15+ years and found them to be every bit as reliable as tapes, and far far easier to use.
