I forsee this as a problem. As part of policy we have to encrypt mobile devices, and we store the recovery key in case the users get locked out. We cannot have someone calling apple (for which we don't setup account for our devices) to unlock these units. Apple cannot be the arbiter of access.
"threaten to go to the press over it."
Done and done.
So says "anonymous coward".
Did you not hear that if we force everyone to use their real identity online that will fix all the problems?
Well if they are honest reviews, and the contractor is claiming they are fake, in addition to being dropped form the suit they can coutersue for libel. Once you gotta get a lawyer for thing like this, and you gotta pay them, you don't typically go half measures.
Well perhaps the IGDA will put their money where their mouth is and advocate for some form of unionization for these exploited workers?
Targeting proof of concept?
My understanding (as very limited as it is), is that you'd need to ablate enough material off the object to knock it out of orbit and to fall to earth.
However do you even need to hit it that hard? Can you just put enough laser energy on to it to perturb it out of orbit without ablating/vaporizing material? More massive objects would of course require more power applied.
So separate is no longer inherently unequal.
1) you aren't camapgning against Tim Cook
2) Complaining about someone who complains about a place that is a against gay rights makes you sound like you are against day rights
3) Which countries did HP do business with when she was in charge that don't have a good record on women's rights?
Yeah none of those will come and bite you in the ass.
The functions written in software is not a 'society facing' item. I would really like to see this misogyny is everywhere groupthink to stop.
Considering that in the instances of 'high profile' individuals, for whom their treats actually got police attention, and when then deemed 'non credible'; there is going to be a vanishingly small percentage of times in which any action is taken by law enforcement for which the reporter will be satisfied.
What is actually a problem condition is that there is a low SNR and something actually happens to someone, and then police hyper react.
We can only hope that well-trained (larger?) law enforcement agencies know how to sift thru all the chaff, but some small town PD? No way to know what you are going to get there.
This sounds like a perfect question for an xkcd 'what if'
First crowd sourced funding, now crowd sourced logistics...
I mean how could a trip to another planet possibly go wrong with this kind of strategy?
I'm going to need $50 million dollars to build the landing pad on mars... I plan on deploying a bunch of down pillows... that'll work right?
Yep I saw that. I use as a gauge how well those in authority apply their own rules to themselves.
