Short of encrypting data before it hits the server, using a private key that is managed only by the user, there really isn't anything these big companies can do to improve your security.
Protecting data in transport? HTTPS's key management is compromised so that's not going to protect against the NSA. Are they going to overhaul that system?
Is rec. short for approved standard or recommendation?
When speaking video standards, Rec. 2020 is short for ITU-R Recommendation BT.2020. Not sure who started that abbreviation, but it's stuck.
there are no standards today for how many frames per second should be used in broadcasting media.
Rec. 2020, a standard used by UHD, specifically gives framerates of 120p, 60p, 59.94p, 50p, 30p, 29.97p, 25p, 24p, and 23.976p.
I've never met someone who picked Myriad over Arial that I couldn't trust. Clearly he's discovered this secret.
In all seriousness, dealing with criminals as a profession doesn't mean you can't have a personal life. Maybe he's into typography and felt like ranting on his personal time. I've said similar things jokingly, though perhaps court workers need higher standards.
AT&T stores have a deal going where you can get a Nokia Qi charger for $25, or three for $50. I picked up the three. One for my desk at work, one for my desk at home, and one for my nightstand.
Not having to plug anything in is awesome. They're compatible with all the other Qi devices, including the new Nexus ones. Highly recommend.
Remember, power over USB is negotiated. It doesn't just supply 2A to each port. The USB 3 spec allows for up to 900mA, but will only provide 150mA if the device doesn't ask for more. There is a separate "charging" spec which supplies up to 5A, though it wasn't supported by motherboards until fairly recently.
The phones want a 90 minute charge time; it's just that they communicate their want for more power in a way that not all USB hosts understand -- often they use some non-standard way that only their power adapter understands -- so the host ends up giving them less power than ideal. It looks like this cable is sort of like a universal remote: it has an IC embedded in it that performs power negotiation for the device.
Not a gaming tablet, but one of the Mullins CPUs, to build a new low-power fanless home server.
This sounds like it could be an excellent Atom competitor.
