These are both good approaches. They're the first 2 on Schneier's list of the 4 ways to "protect yourself from digital surveillance".
The smart bet without further evidence is 50:50.
That's stupid. If you don't know, you should accept that you don't know, not simply invent a midpoint and run with it.
If an ISP wants to throttle video, as long as they do it equally among all providers, that seems fair. Or to give preference to online gaming, that's fair too. As long as the ISP isn't picking and choosing, or asking for money to give a higher preference.
But that is 'picking and choosing', and it's not 'simply providing a pipe'. Why should my ISP get to decide that my neighbour's Skype conversation is more important than my multiplayer, if I'm paying for the connection?
Not to mention that there's a technical way around such measures. Have your multiplayer connection give the appearance of a Skype connection, and you're set.
Also deflation can be an economic disaster, as it discourages spending.
I don't find your word-processor comparison compelling. The difference is whether it's a derivate work, no?
There's a difference between me using your word-processor to create a book, and me using your word-processor as a basis for my own enhanced word-processor.
If the word-processor's EULA were 'viral' even to documents produced with it, then I'd agree, that's not fair, but that's not what's going on here: a Skyrim mod necessarily directly uses Skyrim, where a
Analogy: GCC is available under the GPL. There's an explicit mention that code generated by GCC is not 'virally' treated as a derivative work, i.e. compiling proprietary code with GCC is acceptable. But if you modify GCC, the resulting compiler may only be distributed under the terms of the GPL (i.e. the source is available and the licence is GPL)
Amazon AWS offers 'dedicated instances' (ctrl-f for "Dedicated Instances") for security reasons.
for workloads where corporate policies or industry regulations require that your EC2 instances be physically isolated at the host hardware level from instances that belong to other customers
Anyone know if this attack would actually work today on, say, Amazon's shared-hosting?
Am I right in thinking it was Yahoo who spearheaded the mealy-mouthed use of sunset to mean terminate?
On Web 2.0, nothing is ever cancelled, closed, or shut-down. Only ever sunsetted.
The reason 'global warming' is being replaced by 'climate change' is because idiots like to point out that some areas will actually get colder (due to weather patterns), and reason (stupidly) that this disproves that there's even an issue.
they can probably find a bunch of new music that has a similar beat or flow of something copyrighted long ago, and then sue for damages, and very likely win. That usually only happens when the music becomes popular enough though, otherwise it's not profitable enough.
As far as I know, that's not true. How often do top-20 pop songs actually get sued like this?
"Progressives" want to send you to Death^H^H^H^HRe-Education Camps because they don't like the vehicle you drive. They murdered about a hundred million people in the last century because the sick counter-revolutionary bastards wouldn't "smarten up" and do what they were told.
What on Earth are you trying to say? That's the most indecipherable garbage I've read all week.
Hopefully it's a passing fad.
The way climate-change and the finite nature of the world's oil reserves are 'passing fads', right?
Uh..imiting immigration is a GOOD thing.
No-one cares about your opinion of what's best. The topic was of freedom vs security, and it's obvious that limiting immigration isn't the pro-freedom choice.
Since I'm not buying it I shouldn't be taxed on it
Nope. Legally you own it. The summary is pretty clear the automakers are abusing copyright, remember?
Nothing a nice, expensive official repair shop won't fix.
