When the NSA says these kinds of things, it's like they're saying something that they know is completely ridiculous to turn your attention away from something far more insidious that they're up to.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Have you tried foot pedal mice? They don't generally require as fine of control as a regular mouse and they feel very natural to use.
Grand Theft isn't a petty crime. I'm talking about a B&E where they steal your TV or your bike. I've had multiple cops just shrug their shoulders at me.
You ever try to report a petty crime to the police when you've essentially solved the case for them, including the name of the offender with video and photo proof? Yeah.
We are starting immediately, and by the time we launch our Windows 10 products, our standard image will only include the operating system and related software, software required to make hardware work well (for example, when we include unique hardware in our devices, like a 3D camera), security software and Lenovo applications.
So, you're still going to be shipping it with trial versions of bloatware McAfee or bloatware Norton or whatever, plus your Lenovo-branded applications (which are really just re-branded bloatware ad-servers disguised as "handy applications for running your 3D camera!"). In other words, it'll be "bloatware-free" except for all the bloatware you're still going to pre-load onto it. Thanks, Lenovo!
When the Universe is summed up at the end of time, we'll learn that someone from the future had been sent back to avert the total annihilation of the entire human race and the best way to do it undetected was to force this one chess blunder. One tiny change at one tiny but pivotal point in history. It's the only explanation for why Kramnik can't explain it himself.
Show me a tech company with a non-zero "trustworthiness". Every one of them wants to "monetize" you in any way they can and will screw you over and sell you to the highest bidder in a heartbeat if it raises their quarterlies by a tenth of a percent.
It doesn't matter what the mayor's office does to prepare for an emergency, there will always be someone there to say they were wrong to do it.
But $30,000 is SO AFFORDABLE! Everyone can buy two..no, THREE! It's a golden age of car ownership! Unless you also want food and shelter, I mean.
You should actually read the ruling. The issue was that the defendant destroyed the hard drive before he was notified that he was being sued. He had no reasonable expectation that he would have to produce it for evidence.
That whole summary is a mess.
They haven't needed a warrant to search your phone for a long time.
People keep saying "fire the officers", but this should be a criminal matter. Tampering with evidence, violation of civil rights under color of law, etc. Fire them, jail them as provided by law, make the settlement come out of their pocket (or, perhaps, the pension fund) instead of making the taxpayers foot the bill. HOLD THEM PERSONALLY ACCOUNTABLE AND RESPONSIBLE. Then, and only then, will it stop.
I love their fries.
Maybe he typed it on an iPhone.
