You mean, just like basically every electric appliance ever made for the past, what?, 40 years?
That explains why my Marantz amplifier from 1980 (which I still use) came with a circuit diagram that I will consult in a near future to fix a low frequency hum that started occurring a few weeks ago after 34 years of flawless sound reproduction. oh wait...
Apple has announced that it has designed its new operating system, iOS8, to thwart lawful search warrants.
The piece opens with a blatant lie.
Apple may not have designed it to thwart lawful search warrants but they certainly market it that way.
On devices running iOS 8, your personal data such as photos, messages (including attachments), email, contacts, call history, iTunes content, notes, and reminders is placed under the protection of your passcode. Unlike our competitors, Apple cannot bypass your passcode and therefore cannot access this data. So it's not technically feasible for us to respond to government warrants for the extraction of this data from devices in their possession running iOS 8.
take away our bacon cheese burgers and beer and NFL/NBA/MLB and get rid of all the booze like prohibition and make everyone bow to Mecca five times a day and keep girls from walking around in shorts because you know THEY HATE OUR FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You got it all wrong it never were about hate of our freedom, it is a genuine concern about the obesity problem the US is having and they figure dietary restrictions, exercise 5 times a day greatly would improve the issue, and fat asses in too tiny shorts... Well, most of us rather not see that.
Is that really so outrageous that it justifies an entire Slashdot hatethread?
Yes. No-one should not have to provide "legitimate explanations" about their internet usage on such flimsy criteria.
Can we now see Diesel, Morgan, Johnson, Thompson and Lin dangle next to him?
No? Didn't think so. Fuck you Hollywood!
Snippet: Despite finding that Mayfield’s print was not an identical match to the print left on the bag of detonators, FBI fingerprint examiners rationalized away the differences, according to a report by the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG). Under the one discrepancy rule, the FBI lab should have concluded Mayfield did not leave the print found in Madrid — a conclusion the SNP reached and repeatedly communicated to the FBI. The FBI’s Portland field office, however, used that fingerprint match to begin digging into Mayfield’s background. Certain details of the attorney’s life convinced the agents that they had their man. Mayfield had converted to Islam after meeting his wife, an Egyptian.
