That's fantastic, 'cause I'll definitely pay $0.0006 to not see an ad. Someone show me how to buy up all my personal pageviews.
And I built 1 system with an OCZ Petrol and it vaporized the partitions 6 months later, so that's 100%. I think luck had more to do with success than anything.
I actually _was_ surprised to get a replacement Vertex 4 fairly quickly, which reminds me I should open it and flash it while the firmwares are still easy to get.
What is "unstable code" and how can a compiler leave it out?
The article is actually using that as an abbreviation for what they're calling "optimization-unstable code", or code that is included at some specified compiler optimization levels, but discarded at higher levels. Basically they think it's unstable due to being included or not randomly, not because the code itself necessarily results in random behaviour.
it can spy on what you say!!!
Seriously, if my phone is compromised, everything else is pretty much moot.
This was a standard clinical study with 100 fully-aware participants trying to improve PTSD diagnosis to help the incidents of suicide and psychological issues in returning vets. You've got plenty of other things to gripe about with PATRIOT / PRISM / etc., but for crying out loud this isn't one of them.
Because it's been promised for years.
Or wipes out competing plants entirely. I read a book last month by Paolo Bacigalupi called The Windup Girl which involved a world where multinational conglomerates owned the genetic codes for engineered plants, and engineered plants were all that was left.
Pretty scary that things are getting even this close to that.
They don't get it. The people who block your content in-line can send you back any page they choose, including a 404.
Of course they can. The idea is that those doing the blocking have been forced to do so, and thus can use this alternate error page to distinguish these cases, and show their users how much of the internet they're missing due to government intervention.
A standard 404 could be legitimate, and isn't going to help garner any group support for open-ness.
It's really for stolen phones
Don't be asinine. Your cellphone can already be tracked, tapped, disabled, folded, spindled and mutilated. What this is about is centralising and sharing information about stolen phones so that the utility of stolen phones diminishes to the point that you walking around with an iPhone doesn't look like an easy 200$ target to ne'er-do-wells.
On my home network, I use the private 24-bit block 10.x.x.x, in case I buy more than 16 million devices. Is the article saying that they decided to map public IPs they didn't own to internal devices? Notwithstanding the confusion such cases like the above would cause, this bank could conceivably leak banking data out to that Chinese ISP!
All the articles I can find are equally uninformative.
BRB, going to short myself and be lazy. I'm going to make so much money! Er... wait.
Someone is going to have to hold down the button on the side for 10 seconds though.
Having dealt with selling a government some hardware and services, I can understand charging way more. They don't just call up and order what's on the shelf like your other customers. They want studies and paperwork and certifications and documents and reviews and more paperwork and certificates and contracts and guarantees and the whole process takes a year for what takes your other customers a week.
Seriously, I'm all for accountability in government, but this is the kind of stuff you get for it.
After all the spam I've gotten in the past ~15 years? If I found out there was a spammer in my own city, I'd be willing to spend at least a couple of evenings trying to shut them down.
I enjoy watching my brother play some of his games, and that SMG feature is hilarious. I'd like to see multi-player expand game types; I almost never played COD4 multiplayer, but I almost always like playing puzzle/adventure games (like Monkey Island or Space Quest or what have you) with someone else. Perhaps it's because they were my game of choice in the early 90s (when it was 1 PC per house, not per person), but they don't seem like anywhere near as much fun when played by myself. I'd like to be able to share a screen and controls, and have those arguments about where to go or what to click, and get called an idiot for killing Roger Wilco.
