Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Just because the NSA is trying to weaken encryption standards, why do you have to pile on too!
I think Bandai would say it's a "parody" of the IP they stole.
As in the original movies and cartoons that Power Rangers ripped off and spliced in "local content" to appear to be "original".
There is no stealing from crooks.
Cash, even though it's now traceable, is still much better.
If they don't accept cash, they don't get my business.

Unless you want to live in a 140 F (40 C) world, you need to leave 2/3 of all the coal and tar sands in the ground and not export them like morons.
Earth will get along fine after we kill ourselves off due to our shortsighted nature.
But I always buy the textbook. If the class is just one semester, I buy a used copy.
Same goes for reference texts.
The rest I get at the library or a bookstore. Paperbacks preferred, but Picketty's Capital isn't out in paperback yet.
Depends on what time it is, what I'm trying to do, what season it is (summer is great for bike riding), and how available bikes are.
If I weren't taking morning courses, I'd probably be biking to and from work.
If they expand the bike share network to my neighborhood, I'm more likely to take a bike home from various places, or take it to work when I don't have class. Weekends I have my own bike, just hate the hassle of locking it up especially if it decides to rain.
My textbooks are all 100 percent non-fiction
My library books are about 80/20 non-fiction/fiction
My books (paperbacks mostly) I buy are about 40/60 non-fiction/fiction
Except you ignore NAFTA, FTA, and TPP and other treaties. Consumer Laws used to be at the state level, with few at the national level, but increasingly it's the international treaties that undercut those, and if we are so foolish as to allow China to force us to sign TPP, will be gutted even further.
I took US and Canadian consumer law classes for a while, my brother is an international lawyer in NYC with BC and CA bars. You can continue to believe this is only decided locally, but it isn't.
Look back at the beginning of the information superhighway and you'll see I was there long before you civilians even knew about it.
My name might not appear the same way, but I was there.
Now realize your trade deals are trying to sell your Rights to corporations, but we all know they aren't people, so they don't have Rights.
I was born here too. But I know, having lived in other American countries, that we are NOT the only ones on these two continents to say America and mean where we are (not USA).
Your advice makes perfect sense, which is exactly why dumb devices will soon be illegal to own.
Oh, think you'll be smart and just not configure networking to ensure your privacy? Cute, but nice try. They'll soon tie the license and EULA directly to networking, to ensure it is enabled 100% of the time, to all but guarantee the advertising capability behind that marketing-supplemented price tag.
You're right. You don't need any of these features. Then again, you didn't ask for them, which also explains just how much control you have in this situation. Now, or in the future.
Thank you for the advice. Too bad we can't do a damn thing about it.
You could always damage the circuit which does the reporting. This may generate a fault, but since you own the device, and it's your property, an act like removing a bridge jumper or cutting a capacitor on the circuit should suffice.
Or just find out where the IOT connects and disconnect that.
Actually, the highest risk is from using a cell phone, or even having a cell conversation while driving, even if hands off. Texting is even worse.
Alcohol is pretty bad though.
PUT DOWN THE PHONE!
