The windows vulnerability was on the current version 8.1 that is actively supported. The bug found on android is in a no longer supported version. This is not the same thing.
I don't have a ps4. So thanks for the assumptions. I was simply pointing out that others will have their vacations inadvertently affected due to these actions due to no actions of their own. So thanks for making your tone into some attack against me when this situation won't even affect me. GG. I'm allowed to have concern for others without having a personal stake in the matter.
Only users on the playstations require Sony's servers to be up since you have to log in to PSN to get online. If you play on the PC you don't need PSN what-so-ever. So no FFXIV is not reliant on Sony.
Get over yourself. People get off for the holidays and they want to enjoy them. This is a prime way people enjoy there break when they might be completely snowed in or it's too shitty outside. The fact that you look down on video games doesn't change the fact that this attack does nothing but punish innocent users who simply want to relax and play their systems.
The sick sad part of this is that they think they are fighting the corporate power or something, but in reality all they will be doing is ruining Christmas vacation for many gamers everywhere.
Aren't we already in a human caused mass extinction? How many life forms have been wiped off the planet in the last 2000 years? Faster than the natural rate I'm sure, and it's ongoing.
"In that case, WB admitted that it filed a bunch of false takedowns, but said it was no big deal because it was all done by a computer." Tell that to all those people who lost their homes due to robosigning.
Logical argument for the win.
I'm starting to get tired of this Thomas Edison comparison that I read from time to time. Thomas Edison's inventions inventions fundamentally changed the human condition. Specifically the light bulb. Suddenly the entire human race can get a lot done inside larger indoor spaces and at night where previously limited lighting prevented many activities. The iPhone did not in anyway change the human condition on these scales. Combined with Edison's other inventions Jobs looks even less important. He made a few good devices using existing technology. He did not reinvent the light bulb.
Also, the laws specifically allow the cars to be on the road, and to drive autonomously. The laws state a person with a valid license must sit in the drivers seat, but he is not driving the car. So the fact is yes driverless cars are allowed on the roads in Nevada, Florida, and California.
Considering the topic of conversation the fact that they exist is entirely relevant. You can't just wholesale act like they don't exist because it's inconvenient to the argument. Google alone has a test fleet of at least 10 cars. They've completed over 300,000 miles of autonomous driving. There is even one license in Nevada for one of these cars that was issued in May 2012. Just because you haven't personally been in one yet does not exclude their existence or the fact people are riding in autonomously controlled vehicles.
That's just what the law says. The car itself is perfectly capable of driving itself.
We do have self driving cars. Several exist. Just because they aren't in the consumer space yet doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Laws are already on the books in Nevada to handle them too.
Despite blackberry's performance lately I tend to agree. I've got a iPad 3rd gen, an android tablet, and a Samsung s3. I use the s3 everyday for all the same tasks I would have used tablets for. I'm not even sure the other two tablets are charged right now. When I do real computing I use my laptop.
1) Some phones are already insanely massive and are basically tablets. Some people don't care about holding a brick to their face. 2) Samsung is outselling the iphone because of those larger screens. Poll after consumer poll constantly pegs screen size as the reason.
