and not only the protected stuff. there are numerous "GEMA" bans (or preeptive google banning) where the music didn't even originate on the same continent.
funny, for me it is the other way around - i left FB about 8 years ago and went g+ because my environment was migrating there. Now i had to go back to facebook to make stink at the FB page of my ISP (because thats the only way to get support these days) and was completely lost in how to navigate this completely different layout of Facebook - i guess "intuitive" is related to what i am used to, kinda.
and release securty updates every two days for it
Or they do it because they get money for including it from somewhere, user feedback be damned.
couldnt an autonomous Truck just calculate that it won't be able to brake without collission and instead decide to change lanes? If need be, the AI would just crash itself into a tree on the side to save the human asshole... That opens up a whole new can of worms for malice, i know, but braking isn't the only option, no?
They would sing songs about life, love and the obliteration of all life in the universe
There was a spinoff of 3dstudio called "GMax". It was a free version of 3dstudio without a renderer. The thing came with a really good tutorial on how to model (and how to do it effectively), texture map, animate and use inverse kinematics to animate complex models. If you can find it anywhere, that would be an excellent starting point.
This is where you learn to navigate 3D and how to use different methods layered upon each other to parametrically form a complex body out of a simple one.
Then get 3dstudio and play around with complex materials and rendering itself. Also, first contact with complex physics and particle systems.
i prefer 3DStudio over maya for learning because 3Dstudio historically came out of the "work with primitives" corner, while maya was about splines and curves to model stuff. Working with primitives (cubes, spheres and stuff) is more wysiwyg than a bunch of curves.
Using the old opera, i get a nice and silent "This video isn't encoded for your device", so that broad won't get any forced views from me to brag "look how many ppl watch my vid, i am sooo relevant"
Sometimes it pays off to use obsolete technology
Consider the average target consumer of such a card: Battlefield playing teens. "Military grade" is exactly the right buzzword for them.
good point. I always set those to "not back up", but i guess in reality it doesn't matter. Exchange credentials are a step closer to damage than WiFi, though...
yeah, not gonna happen.
re: "skype or phone" - dialog. You only have to choose once - given that you check "always do this" This is the system letting you set the default app for a task.
Austrian here. For the most part i agree, but i think there is more:
I am not really good at understanding how politics work, but i think having lots of smaller states with localized laws and different political parties (as in every state has their own parties, plus more than two) puts a bit of a dent into lobbying. This forces corporation to fight their wars via the customers instead of just buying a representative to write laws for them. Which is not to say there is no lobbying here (at the moment it's quite visible with big tobacco vs. vaping), but it seems to be less effective.
Also, europe being the younger collective means we are behind on lots of stuff. But we are quickly catching up: rights get diminished left and right, telcos now work across multiple countries, pseudo monopolies are on the rise. I am a customer with UPC, a multinational that bought our local cable provider Chello and local ADSL provider inode. Service quality and quality of the connection both have dropped significantly since then...
As for the citizens/customers: here in Austria we have multiple organisations that fight for consumer rights, and they do a pretty good job - i don't hear a lot about such things from america, so are there none or are they just powerless in america?
I dunno how it is in america (or any other country for that matter) but where i live, speedometers in cars are required by law to over-report speeds by a small percentage.
and those sites will respect my privacy?
