But this involves TECHNOLOGY so it must be evil because without TECHNOLOGY there would be other possible way for the folks at the airport to calculate how long you might be waiting in line.
No siree, no way at all. You standing there, in full view of every person, in a public space. No way to check. None at all.
I know this is a radical idea, and I'm just spitballing here, but maybe the part about unauthorized act being done a computer should be a hint. If it's not your computer or your system, don't try to get into it.
Or are we going to use excuses as to why it's acceptable to try and get into someone else's equipment when you're not supposed to then whine about the penalty when you're found out?
Mysteriously, people who were voting for the Democratic candidate had their votes changed to the Republican candidate and the same excuse was used.
For reference, reference 2, reference 3.
Based solely on the description provided, this would make for a great setting in D&D.
Lich? Wight? Vampire? Evil mage? Jar Jar Binks?
" Do you know how many terrorists that wanted to kill me I have come face to face with? 0.
Remove the "I have come face to face with" and that answer will certainly not be zero.
You're missing the point. This isn't about solving a problem, it's about using technology. It doesn't have to solve a problem so long as technology is involved.
Even better, you get to use a laser!
Sort of like the right's hysteria over Ebola. Less than 5K deaths on the entire planet and they panic, completely ignoring the 50K+ deaths from flu or the 30K+ roadway deaths which occur in this country every year.
Since it's not your wife or husband, why do you care?
Since it's not your dog, why do you care?
Since it's a living, breathing creature, unlike a blob of cells, mistreating it shows ones lack of civility, humanity and general lack of morals.
Since it's not your house, why do you care?
I don't, up to the point where your negligence in keeping your property maintained interferes with my property because critters from your area migrate to mine.
Since it's not your city, why do you care?
Since it's not your book, why do you care?
Since it's not your life, why do you care?
I don't. But then a blob of cells isn't a life.
Since they're not your embryos, why do you care?
One central point of information.
Shouldn't that come from the manufacturer/importer?
They do but most people ignore the mailings or emails. However, by pointing to a web site, that somehow triggers people into looking (considering how much people are online to begin with).
Besides, if you're buying a used car, this is an easy way to see if it is on a recalled list since you wouldn't have been notified by the manufacturer.
Yes, it is an insignificant figure considering they said they would get $184 million. Do the math, that's less than a quarter of what they said they would get (21.7% to be exact).
But thank you for playing and proving my point of people's hypocrisy when it comes to something they don't like (red light cameras) and things they do like (legalizing marijuana).
When something you don't like doesn't meet its expectation it's a complete and utter failure. When something you do like doesn't meet it's expectation it still got something.
This doesn't include the associated costs with the increase in crime or loss of productivity which have to be taken out of that amount.
So using the inevitable whining from people on here, Colorado's experiment is just as much a failure as Chicagos.
Considering Facebook vacuums every tidbit of information about a person (name, location, sites they visit, friends, etc), I don't think claiming the integrity of your community is at stake when law enforcement uses it to catch criminals is the way to go, especially considering the numerous times Facebook has already been caught manipulating results or running secret tests on users.
