And you kept both completely shielded from any forms of media so that there was no way that they ever would associate cars with boys?
The female vervet monkey in this picture prefers to play with dolls. The male vervet monkey prefers cars. Do you think they were influenced by the media?
In the wake of the Obama Administration encouraging use of HTTPS, Ted Cruz was reported as saying that encryption was a government conspiracy to deprive godfearing Americans of their privacy.
I'm sure there will be exceptions made for presidential candidates who prefer to run their own web severs from their homes, Hillary style....
I believe this counts as a law. Was her server certified to FIPS 199 and NIST standards? Who did the certification? Were the results sent to the OMB?
It is absolutely, 100% not acceptable to run state secrets through a personally maintained server
Oh, she's got that covered: she just claimed that she never used email for anything secret or confidential. If you can believe that. I don't.
Check my other post in this thread. Sat morning it's "F". The parent of this thread sees a "B" sat evening. Looks like they fixed something.
Next, the server admin will be discovered in Fort Marcy Park with a "self-inflicted gunshot wound."
As I said, its forgiven for the macbook air. Its a ridiculous direction with the macbook pro.
But this isn't a MacBook Pro. It's a MacBook. The MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are separate lines of laptops. If you want all the other ports all the time, get a MacBook Pro.
I predict that all of you net neutrality supporters are in for a nasty surprise. Your hatred of Comcast and fear of what it might do has lead to the biggest restrictions on freedom since the Patriot Act, which at least had the excuse of 3,000 dead people.
But what’s the excuse here? Ooh, Comcast might charge Netflix more money? There might be “fast lanes” that cost more? Do you think George Soros spent $196 million on NN because he’s worried about Netflix? Of course not. You don’t need 300+ pages of regulations for just that. This whole thing is a Trojan Horse so that the government can get it’s fingers deeper into the internet. As soon as the regulations are available, search them for terms like “hate speech” and "disparate impact." This will be a mass of restrictions, requirements, taxes, subsidies, and pay-offs to favored groups. I'm sure trial lawyers will be happy, because there will no doubt be lots of new things they can sue about. I’m sure the FCC will administer this with all the fairness that the IRS has brought to regulating political advocacy non-profits.
And now that the regulations have changed, the NSA will have a freer hand with wiretaps.
Get ready for a shitstorm once Silicon Valley finds out what’s really in this.
Fantasy, unless it's well and thoroughly regulated. Capitalism when free incentivizes monopolization and centralization of power and eliminates competition.
Nonsense. Look at the history of most monopolies: they got that way due to deals with government bodies that prevented competition. See the Bell System, railroads in the 19th century, municipal cable franchises, etc. There are cases of monopolies achieved through purely technological means: for years Alcoa had a monopoly on the only cost-effective means of producing aluminum, but even then they were kept in check because manufacturers could often substitute other materials.
The creative destruction of capitalism makes it hard for even giant players to stay on top. Remember 15 years ago, when Microsoft was king? For years now, Apple has made more from iPhones alone than Microsoft makes from everything. 50 years ago people worried that GM and US Steel would grow too big.
Finally, regulation has downsides, and is often used by big players to squelch small ones. See regulatory capture.
