The minute Microsoft made Activesync sufficiently robust, BB's cause célèbre evaporated.
Remember when RIM opened up its network so the Saudi and Indian governments could spy on BB users....
Judging by sales, that group is pretty damned small and it is very questionable that it is large enough to keep the company afloat.
Go pump BB's stock somewhere else.
Germany was spending far more on their military during that time than Britain was. If Britain and France had stepped in earlier, Germany would have been totally unprepared and the war would have ended quickly. Not to mention all of the horrors of the Holocaust that would have been prevented.
If Britain and France had managed to delay the war to "prepare" even more, say a few years, the Luftwaffe would have been dominated by jets, German ballistic missiles would have been longer range and more precise, and they might even have become a nuclear power. I really don't think this is the analogy you're looking for.
Thank goodness a movie like Life of Brian wasn't released in these knee-trembling times.
I can imagine what is going through the heads of many Korean War vets, that MacArthur should have been allowed to march right into Manchuria.
North Korea really hasn't even proven it has a missile that reliably reach Japan. The country is a total basket case run by a violent, completely detached dynasty. It represents a significant regional threat, but if it were to ever do anything truly belligerent, China would yank support and the regime would collapse.
That, to my mind, is the chief threat of North Korea, that when the Kims finally do lose grip, the regime's collapse will be violent for North Koreans and their neighbors.
Indeed. Of all the groups that make threats against the West, NK seems the one least likely to have the ability or desire to actually attack a Western target. I cannot imagine the fires of hell that would reign down on North Korea should it be demonstrated to be behind mass murders in the United States.
It boggles my mind that anyone seriously believes North Korea is going to start mounting attacks on North American theaters should they screen this film.
So if some nice upstanding code monkey makes a few changes to, say, OpenSSL, the minute he uploads it to the repository, the Australian police are going to come down on him like a ton of bricks?
Meanwhile, some batshit crazy Iranian refugee can buy a gun...
Except that in-situ is an English word. It's origins are Latin, but then again, so is a vast amount of the English vocabulary.
We have these things called dictionaries. Rather than demonstrating intense stupidity, inform yourself first.
Oh right, this is
What's there to translate? It will always end up being "We own your fucking asses, peons."
By now would be surprised if they don't have at least a couple Taepodong 2s that have at least a fair chance of a successful flight. They're not impressive as far as ICBMs go, but they are ICBMs.
Propaganda campaign by who? I think Singer needs to check his haughtiness at the door:
the ability to steal gossipy emails from a not-so-great protected computer network is not the same thing as being able to carry out physical, 9/11-style attacks in 18,000 locations simultaneously. I can't believe I'm saying this. I can't believe I have to say this."
Except, of course, for the fact that the prime suspect is the hand-picked hacker squad of the Hollywood-obsessed leader of a nuclear armed state with ICBMs, whose family's Hollywood obsession has gone to such extremes in the past as kidnapping filmmakers and forcing at them at gunpoint to make movies for them. I can't believe I'm saying this. I can't believe I have to say this.
Well, at least Russians won't freeze to death this winter. They can use wheelbarrows full of rubles to insulate their homes.
