This isn't a sci-fi novel, futurist boy.
Just set your user agent to iPad or iPhone and YouTube will magically become h.264 and HTML5 -ified.
"All the other kids" do not have a fucking phone. Kids do not need cell phones any more today than they did in 1930. Parents who allow their kids to have cell phones should be roped and spayed and / or neutered. What kind of doltish parent even considers giving their kids a phone? And what sort of moron falls for the "daddy doesn't love me" trick?
No wonder the world is going to shit.
You've really hit on an interesting method to crowd-source the task of finding the guy your bosses are going to kill. At least that's one possibility for a post like this, right?
By forcing people to engage in business with a client they would rather not have, we have crossed the line and no longer have freedom of association. Note that in the Constitution there is no "but not if you are in business" clause.
All the angst and hand wringing in the world won't change the fact that those assholes and their cake have caused enormous waves of dissent.
Maybe we can finally get rid of the whole idea of protected classes this time around and have equality for real.
All it takes is a National Security Letter and Cisco is putting a backdoor in every router it makes, then shipping all the ones destined for surveillance targets to the NSA BEFORE they ship to the dead drop.

How do you know they are script kiddies and not a bunch of US Cyber Command types in an official DOD facility?
Anyway glad somebody else sees this too. Anonymous is the NSA
Doubt they will, though, because Anonymous at its heart is just the non-official cover for the NSA.
He will be killed in prison to send a message. This is just how we roll in the USA.
Actually, Apple started developing the iPad not long after Steve returned to Apple, and at his request. The phone idea was only considered after several iPad prototypes were constructed and tested.
When the iPad was actually introduced, it was by Steve himself. Go watch the video on YouTube if you don't believe me.
BYOD is gonna kill your little Windows-loving gold-bricking ass dead.
"Well, technically, phones never got software updates - updates are a relatively new thing."
Phones that might *need* updates are a relatively new thing. This is hardly an excuse though.
Let's continue the conversation on comp.misc on Usenet. It's the new Slashdot, but without Timothy's inflammatory subs.
You simply take out your sidearm and shoot them as they sneak up and attempt to plug their Thunderbolt hacking gadget in. After all, your computer isn't sitting there unlocked all day is it? If it is, they don't need this exploit at all.
