The hardest part will be the Printed Circut Boards (PCBs). If people start making home 3D multi-layer PCB printers, you could little print out (most of) a phone.
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).
If you read the article, they cops have custom password hacking software. It's more likely they just seized everything. There's probably 1TB, of actual child porn. But they got a warrant so they can go through the rest of the data...illegally...just to be sure.
Extradition treaties are if someone commits a crime within your country and then flees to avoid prosecution. If a Japanese company uses Amazon Web Services to facilitate something that's a crime in the US, but not in Japan; should all of Amazon's assets be seized and their executives be arrested? or should the US demand extradition of the Japanese business holders?
This has nothing to do with law and more to do with big movie industries continued extension of the entire Napster / MPAA / RIAA bullshit.
Nah. It wont' happen here. First, Kim isn't even a citizen and John Key admitted the data collection on him was illegal. NZ's laws have since changed so it's now legal. Also, no one is in jail for the illegal search.
The justice system in most high income countries, including America, is fucked. It favours those with money or who are willing to be disloyal in exchange for pleas
I'm a computer scientist who moved from Cincinnati to Melbourne and worked for a year there. Even with the cost-of-living, I worked a contract for $75k/year and could live very comfortable in Melbourne. I even left with more money than I arrived with (and I didn't even work the entire time; really only about 4 months total with some remote work still coming in from the US).
Minimum wage is Victoria was $14 an hour. Oh yea, and citizens got free medicare.
Don't confuse cost of living with cost of cheap electronics. They're two very different things, and the US gets one to keep the middle class complacent and ignorant
Same goes with militants in areas around Afghanistan and Pakistan. They stopped using cellphones entirely. If you use cellphone there to coordinate anything, you will die.
I remember back in the 2000's, some company was talking about putting up a ton of low-earth-orbit satellites to provide 2-way satellite Internet (I think at the time, you could get satellite via Dish network, but you still needed a phone line to transmit and it was way overpriced)
You don't transmit information back up to a GPS satellite. They broadcast and our devices receive and triangulate. It's also a fairly slow protocol. 2-way communication with that many endpoints is significantly more complicated.
You really think ISIS got a hold of some Twitter/Google account passwords? Sure there's social engineering, but I think it's more likely CENTCOM faked the ISIS tweets. It just helps build anti-terrorism support and stricter data control from the US people. It's all bull-shit.
I know we've found some of these "elite controllers" in the form of children; families who adopted kids in the late 80s and early 90s. The drugs were so hard on kids that many would get sick immediately. So you you give the kids drugs so they can live until 15 or don't and they live to be 8 (but happier for a bit).
Some parents chose to take their kids off the drugs..and some of those kids are in their late 20s today! But many of them aren't.
My question: how do you find these cases in adults? You can't ethically give someone a placebo for 5 years! Are these people who the point of infection can be narrowed down to an instance and who discover they have HIV 6+ years after the fact?
I assumed there must have been some spin with it mentioned Harper in a positive light. I know a Canadian who had nothing good to say about him (she now lives in New Zealand)
Well the other three were co-authored. Yea, that first book was amazing. There was a video game too. It wasn't so great.
Quality of Service is built into IPv6. The ISP shouldn't have anything to do with QoS. That is solely the discretion of the service or client. If I want, I can configure my servers so that SMTP traffic has a very low QoS for IPv6 based networks. Network Neutrality ensures that ISPs don't alter that QoS along the way.
We're a long way off from IPv6, and we shouldn't be. But that's another issue. ISPs shouldn't handle the throttling. They should give equal priority to everything.
I always hated car talk. They oversimplified a lot of stuff and there are so many things they've gotten wrong! Plus they're annoying as fuck.
Who gives a shit. Good riddance
