Uhm, thats what commonality is...
Im afraid that the F/A-18E/F has less than 10% commonality with the C/D. Its an entirely new aircraft.
I see what you did there, Slashdot editors. Brilliant.
If you had used an accurate headline, such as "Bomb hoax perp caught despite using the target's own network." then the "despite" part would have sounded stupid and you would have had an obviously non-story, right on the face of it. But by throwing in a random unrelated part of the story and misleadingly implying something about it, you made it sound interesting! More people need to learn this trick: lies make things interesting!
A guy puts on a mask and walks into a bank. He hands the teller a note, "My name is John Smith, and this is a robbery. Shhh. Give me $10k." Police later investigate John Smith, and confirm it was him. Headline: "robber caught despite using mask" because, clearly, masks are an important and very relevant part of the story!
Dell isn't always the seller as there are commercial resellers and outlets that stock Dell equipment - PC World for instance.
My wife has had the top edge power button on her iPhone4 die 3 times now, and each time Apple wanted £119 to replace the unit - she now doesn't have an iPhone and won't ever have an iPhone again.
Interesting, you solution seems relatively fair, and reasonable. Prediction it will ever be implemented: 0.05%
Another business that can't survive without tax payer money to help keep the costs down on a vehicle that only wealthy folks can afford. Brilliant.
And above is another example of someone who can't think past next quarter's profit report.
Fortunately, there are people who can, and they've come to the realization that transitioning away from 100% reliance on fossil fuels is a good idea, and will benefit everyone in the long run.
We would also appreciate a few ovums from a selection of healthy, attractive ladies aged 18-25. For research purposes of course!
Blue-eyed blondes with no Jewish contamination, er, ancestry, please.
Interesting (and well-stated) points.
However, I don't think allowing users to control individual permissions will fix it. Users will just continue authorizing the kitchen sink. If some of them start exercising more control over specific permissions, app developers will simply respond by refusing to show the dancing pigs if SMS isn't actually working.
And I don't think shutting off the APIs entirely is an acceptable solution, even if it arguably works for Apple.
I don't think that analogy is useful. If you leave your door open, you're the one that stands to lose, but if vulnerabilities exist the software company (generally) isn't the loser, which is why it makes sense to impose some method of bringing the societal costs to bear on the company. In economic terms, vulnerability costs are largely a negative externality, while security costs are internalized. That's a recipe for incenting people to ignore security, and the general solution is to internalize the externality.
I think a better analogy would be leaving something dangerous to others unsecured. Say, explosives. If you have a license to handle explosives and you don't follow the rules for securing them appropriately, you will get fined (if your'e caught). The other twist with software vulnerabilities is that the risk associated with a given bug is much harder to pin down, whereas it's pretty easy to quantify with a given type and quantity of explosives. This proposal attempts to use market forces to quantify the risk and determine the dollar amount of the "fine". It further tries to use the fine to actually motivate and therefore fund the security research. In the case of explosives, the government pays people to audit licensees and the value of the fines go to the government. I suspect if we looked a bit we could find some situations like this proposal, where the government essentially outsources the auditing operation to a third party who is compensated by collecting the fines.
Yup. My old iPhone 4, which was running perfectly fine with iOS 6 just crawls now. Safari is almost unusable. Other than email, about the most Internet I centric thing I use it for now is tethering to my Nexus 7. When my iPhone finally kicks it, I'm going with an Android phone, probably a Nexus 5. Then I don't need the evil that is called iTunes to copy to the phone, can access the file system and don't have to deal with Apple's ludicrous restrictions.
Oooh, what a trustworthy source! Nobody rich is wasting their time on slashdot.
Now excuse me while I go back to my orgy with super models.
if you and your bro were watching the game on the couch and he said he'd give you $5 to get him a fresh beer, you'd at least consider it...b/c you can buy a beer at the bar later w/ it
if you refused, but he then offered you $50 to get him the beer, most ppl wouldn't turn that down!
"Get me a beer and I'll give you $5."
"No. Get it yourself."
"Sudo get me a beer and I'll give you a tenth of $50."
"Okay! Here's your beer."
"Get me a beer and I'll give you a hundredth of $500."
"No. Get it yourself."
"Sudo get me a beer and I'll give you a thousandth of $5000."
"Okay! Here's your beer."
globaljustin, you appear to be correct that the responses are varying, so I must reluctantly agree that your model is perfectly accurate.
But in a system with 100's of competing products, who wants to run their business by having hundreds or thousands of highly volatile currencies as a exchange?
Nobody, of course. But that only means that most of the competing currencies will die a quick death from lack of support. In the end there will probably be one or two currencies that retain enough mindshare to survive; BitCoin may or may not be one of them, but it does have first-mover status, which is a significant advantage.
You do understand academia's purpose, right?
