Neither has called me on my cell phone, no have I seen an increase in solicitation or scam calls.
It's a security feature.
I know it is not in our DNA, but seriously - this time - read TFA. They guy was taking tennis lessons at a school his child does not attend. He had been warned previously not to park his car on the tennis court and charge. He did it again, and so they got fed up and called 911.
All that said, his intent was to steal a lot more electricity - he just got caught after only 20 minutes of charge time. Intent is important. The whole "5 cents" part of the headline is stupid and deliberately misleading.
And what's more likely: a hacker gains access to my email and bank account, or a hacker bypasses the bank's "security" entirely and has access to EVERYONE'S bank account?
Well, based on the torrents of spam that I get from friends and relatives hijacked accounts, I'd say pretty darned likely.
The largest in the US with 20% of the market, Comcast/NBC/Universal, is. Time Warner/Road Runner, #2 with 15% of the market, is. #5 is Cox, and they also are known for producing content.
The keygen would still work, plus Google will let you print out one-time use codes that you can keep in your wallet. I have had to use those before. Google will also let you set up a phone number that it will ring with the code - and naturally your desk phone at work sounds like a pretty good candidate.
Google and Facebook offer simple two-factor that works with any cellphone capable of SMS. Facebook also has a keygen built into their smartphone app. I wish everyone did this.
or are you saying without the content that traffic would somehow magically exist.
I don't know if it is "magic", but we did a pretty good job of routing around the lack of content with p2p. We'll fill up the pipes one way or another - they might want to reflect on what a wonderful thing Netflix has done: getting people to actually pay for content again.
Well, you were stealing.
Ultimately, Sgt. Ford did make the decision to pursue the theft charges, but the decision was based on Mr. Kamooneh having been advised that he was not allowed on the property without permission.
I know it isn't fair to read TFA, but there you go. The man was warned previously by the school that he could not park his car on the tennis court, and he did it anyway. I'm no lawyer, but I'm pretty sure I could find some statutes that he violated.
Now multiply $5 by the number of people willing to steal power and you see why we need to crack down. Same reason you give $100 fine to someone for littering. It's way disproportionate, but if everyone does it we have a big fat mess.
Fine. Get a law passed to that effect.
I've watched a yes man given a shot because he judged correctly or got lucky and told the CEO exactly what he wanted to hear. It didn't end well, but it got them 6 months in a position that he wouldn't have had if the other managers weren't playing little emperor games themselves.
That's all well and good if you don't have a co-worker who will go to the CEO and explain how if HE were in charge, the printers would be working.
BTW, after a little Googling, it was the Suzuki family and company that I was thinking of originally.
