If it brakes causality, doesn't that disprove it right there?
Lets just air-gap those systems -- unless someone can explain why we need to make a nuclear reactor accessible from the Internet.
Most are airgapped. But with cellphones and cell enabled laptops you suddenly have new weak points you didn't used to have to worry about.
No, the AC that posted that is just an idiot. The minimum wage in China is different from region to region, even city to city. In most of the factory regions it's around $200/month.
Obviously you haven't shopped at best buy or toys r us lately. They kill Amazon on price and selection
So Best Buys Book section is better than Amazons? And their Jewelry? Cutlery? Clothing?
Oh wait, they don't have any of that stuff... I'd better go check Toys R Us... lol
And on price? Yes, I have been to Best Buy lately... I went to get a network cable to replace a broken one. It was $29.99 for a single cable. They had much cheaper ones on their website but they're not available locally. And the cables they had at the store weren't listed on the website.
So I suspect you're comparing their websites... ok... but that's basically the same service. The store has entirely different products and different prices and it's worthless.
There's no reason to shop at a retailer unless you're desperate and need something now. Even the more overpriced online retailers kill brick and mortar on price. Local retailers are closing left and right near me. The mall, which had a 3 lane exit built for it just a few years ago because lines to the parking lot would block the interstate around the holidays, is now a ghost town. Back in the 1990's they kicked out any retailer that wasn't trendy like The Gap or Banana republic, so the stores that made the mall interesting are gone. Radioshack is nothing more than a cellphone kiosk now. Now those interesting retailers have moved to our long vacant downtown (ironically killed off by the mall!) Those unique boutique shops are the only way retail will survive the next 5 to 10yrs and you can guarantee location tracking is the last thing on their minds.
Retailed killed itself, and this "Surveillance" is just a further example of how they just don't get it.
Yea, but this story is so lame I think even degrades the site. What's next? A new recipe program is released and partially funded by Martha Stewart so it's news?
Why does it make no sense to deny you were involved? North Korea typically does deny things which they actually do ( for example) while taking credit for things they don't or can't do. Their whole game is to live behind an obfuscation of words. If we actually believed them when they said they were prepared to nuke us, they would be smoking crater already. However, if we didn't quietly worry about it, they wouldn't so easily milk concessions out of us (and would probably get invaded). Their ideal outcome would be for anyone planning another Kim Jong Un movie to decide it's not worth the financial risk, while still leaving the U.S. government insufficient proof to retaliate. Don't make the mistake of believing the leaders really are as deluded as their rhetoric. They have real strategic objectives behind it.
All recording mediums, even Tapes and records are digital if you look close enough. There is a limit to how fine a change you can have even in a record groove. So the fact of the matter is, eventually digital will be able to surpass any conceivable analog source in sampling rate.
But what will be the reaction of the "activists" when these cameras capture indisputable footage of, say, somebody like Michael Brown launching an unprovoked physical attack against a police officer?
They'd probably ask why he tried to apprehend someone twice his size without any backup. Then ask, why after he'd already shot the guy 4 times he had to put 2 more bullets in his head.
Cops should be able to defend themselves, but they seem to be throwing themselves into needless danger over and over again. He was a moron to try and wrestle with this guy over a pack of cigars. If he got away, so what? Then, I don't think I've ever heard one of these police shootings that didn't involve the cop emptying a 16rnd clip. This isn't a western. That, again, is stupid. How many bystanders had bullets whizzing past them? What if the guys friend then turns on the cop? He's out of ammo! And worst of all, you just shot someone to death over a box of cigars. That's not ok. Maybe we should instal missile launchers in their headlights to? There's a jay walker! Lets nuke the intersection, he might be armed!
Then why should the police care about violence against you?
The police in question... already don't care. So it's kind of a moot point.
Slashdots just as guilty of this as anywhere else...
A month or two ago I was getting modded troll left and right for suggesting that Ebola wasn't about to ravage North America and kill millions of people.
Can someone explain to me what "7,000 documents" is? Or 31,000 even? are they 1kb sized documents? 1mb? Spreadsheets? Scanned pages?
I'm baffled by this use of measurement that has absolutely no meaning to the modern world.
What? Grown men find a movie written for boys ages 6 to 12 shallow? You don't say...
I took my son to it yesterday.... he spent the rest of the afternoon riding our Dog around like a warg and chopping at lego dwarves. I think the movie had the effect it intended.
Yeah seriously. Windows is still awful and still controls the entire desktop market, twenty years after we could have solved the problem legally. We predicted that the desktop market would be lost to competition forever, and it has been exactly so. Our rightness is unquestionable.
We pretend it was yesterday because they never got any punishment after all that bother, and because after that things got exactly as bad as we always said they would. We were right and if we keep harping on how right we were, then that example will help promote our rightness.
Compare that to corporate personhood. When was that court decision, like 150 years ago? And here we are still harping on it because we are still right and history bears out our rightness with new examples every week or every month.
My great-grandchildren can harp on Microsoft, too, because they will still be suffering under the thumb of Windows.
