My bank just implemented a new password policy. "Between 6-10 characters, the first two should be 'XX' and the rest must be letters and numbers, with at least one of each type". I just finished sending them an e-mail in which I included a helpful link to some rainbow tables.
You can set any DNS you want on your computer. You don't have to use the one handed out by the ISP's modem or router.
That's not a solution, that's a workaround. The author is clearly trying to define the actual problem and make a supposition as to the cause, not just find a way to make the symptoms stop happening.
The "race to zero" has done nothing but create a wasteland of crappy "freemium" games. Dungeon Keeper is the culmination of developers' efforts to move the pricing model away from initial purchase and into in-app purchases. The practice has absolutely decimated gaming. I don't necessarily see Steam's move as a good thing.
This may be overkill for your needs, but I have a Synology NAS that does this. It's got a Dropbox-like app called Cloud Sync to sync all your devices with your NAS (and will sync WiFi-only for your Android if you want). It also has a separate photo app that will auto-upload your photos to your NAS. It includes many other apps that might interest you as well.
Because only a tiny percentage of PC users want to use (or have even heard of) Linux. Like it or not, we are in the minority.
"Is there a specific price point at which regulation should be automatic?"
Any financial transaction. This is fairly standard.
Why? Should garage sales be regulated? Why does the government need to be involved in every facet of your life?
"But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it – away from the fog of the controversy."

FTFA: He could now effectively be held responsible for around $6,000 in assistance already provided by the state along with future child support payments.
The question you should be asking is "Why should everyone else have to pay for it?"
If you want to allow the police to look through your phone without a warrant, you're more than welcome to. I would appreciate it if you'd leave the rest of us out it.
Ah, decided to go with "douchenozzle" anyway, I see.
If there is enough evidence for arrest, then there is enough evidence TO GET A GODDAMN WARRANT. Does the Fourth Amendment mean nothing to ANYONE anymore?
I'm more concerned with the amount of criminal activity listed in the spreadsheet. These are just the ones that have been caught.
The department isn't a corporation and they are public employees. The time for police to keep things behind closed doors has long since passed.
I absolutely hate trying to help friends or relatives resolve computer problems, only to find that the computer is infested with McAfee software that has to be dealt with first, or in some cases is the main problem. Sadly users have been brainwashed into thinking that they need this crap and is is somehow good for them. But John is far from innocent in all of this, there were serious problems even back when he had full control of what the software that bears his name did.
To be fair, I see McAfee installers piggybacked on a lot of other software. Users who blindly click on things without reading or understanding are are least partially at fault.
