Yeah, and if that was what was going to happen, maybe Snowden would have stayed. Preferring to avoid torture followed by more torture followed by American prisonrape followed by some more torture does not cast a shadow on Snowdens heroic actions. He's certainly given up enough to prove his sincerity.
As far as I can tell, traditional 100 watt bulbs are more in the 1000 lumen range, with modern halogen incandecents being about 13-1400 lumen. A quick search places a 30watt CFL at 2000 lumen, almost twice what an incandecent does.
I actually have a couple of 60w CFL's with an output of 4200 lumens each. Granted you can't stick them in most lamps due to size but they fit in a standard socket.
They used to have audit logs but then someone pointed out Keith's LOVEINT logs and there were grumblings about Rick's kickbacks from businesses. Best just to leave accesses to data unlogged so everyone can go around their business without interference. Who could have expected someone like Snowden actually taking a moral high ground? With all that unmonitored and unsupervised access to everything about everyone he should have had some fun with the dirt, like everyone else.
With multiple sources of information and technologies, the system becomes lucrative.
You will, however, get even more false positives. Which doesn't matter as long as the account balance for the scammers selling useless junk to gullible officials gets real positive.
Was this an actual new movie or just another reskin of Save the Cat?
Frankly I find myself 'watching' movies by simply reading their wikipedia entry these days. I've seen CGI before so the text version gets to the point much more quickly.
Of course, as the parties providing oversight and budget are getting kickbacks it's instead considered a most lucrative waste of time.
Um, yes, NSA is engaged in industrial espionage as well. At least Petrobras has been suggested as a target as well as the known ECHELON incidents. Most likely they're just better at hiding it as they tap directly in to the infrastructure rather than engaging in directed intrusions as often.
And frankly, even as a US corporation I'd say there's cause to worry unless you're the one cosying up with the NSA or your trade secrets might just end up with your competitors who happen to be pals with the right brass.
The failure in the implementation is failing in temporal targeting. It doesn't matter if you know what someone's interests are if you don't know _when_ they are. Someone may be interested in psychedelics but they're not interested in them when at work or while chatting to a friend. They're interested in them while reading information on psychedelics.
That's why the tracking is pointless. You're getting worse targeting than if you simply target the content because it doesn't matter who they are, it only matters what they're doing at the moment. The content gives you both the information that they're interested in the target subject and that they're interested in it at that point in time.
You don't want a random sales guy sitting down at your table in a bar when you're talking with a friend and saying 'I've been following you around and would like to suggest you buy this oven I can tell you about'. But you might actually be receptive to a sales guy coming up next to you when you're looking at ovens and saying 'I can tell you something about the oven you're looking at if you want'.
Frankly I doubt it's that useful an indicator, with the prevalence probably ranging in the 50+% range (and I wouldn't be surprised at an actual 100% prevalence). Traits like empaty and reasoning like ethics take time to mature. Now, if they still abuse animals or insects at 20+ there may be some possible issues.
Personally I can recall some magnifying glass incidents I'm not proud of. 30 years later, I'll usually release flies outside if I manage to catch them alive.
The most compelling reason for blocking child porn is not that it depicts the victim of a crime or has been produced by a crime, but that the very existence and distribution of the material can arguably be considered abuse and harm the victim. Considering the strong desire expressed from some to be able to remove embarrassing private history off facebook and other places, I would imagine the psychological impact of such materials being widely spread to be several orders of magnitude worse.
Maemo could easily have been adapted to run android apps as well and the capability was even commercially available before Elop took over. An android track at Nokia could have had a decent chance competing with Samsung. Having an OS that there are actually people who want would have put Nokia at least in a better position.
Considering Nokia was selling 10 times as many phones as Apple in 2010 they certainly were utterly crushing iphones.
So, Nokia certainly had a future and Elop certainly ran one of the greatest destructions of value in history. Hopefully he'll go on doing the same and finish what Ballmer's started at Microsoft.
Right. The NSA is very picky about getting good data so they're not interested in just dragnetting the whole internet and dumping it all in a huge database... No, wait, that was the NSA in that fantasy land I made up the other day that wasn't run by asshats.
This is the NSA in this reality and yes they will store any quality data on any users fingerprint, not because it might actually be good for stopping terrorists but because they can use it as a selling point to up their budget. Or sell it to governments they can trick into thinking it's useful. So of course the NSA will get a copy, pre-hash, of the fingerprints and they'll store it together with the rest of the useless crap they have stored. They won't stop any terrorists with it, but they'll claim they did and maybe they'll nail one or two false positives for fun.
One sort of wonders if the bids to host the Olympics are drying up. If the choice is between one country that will massively riot at Olympic spending while the economy is crap, another country that might very well be in civil disorder due to conflict between a repressive religious government and a significant secular population and a third that has significant problems with radioactive materials in the hands of idiots then I suspect the events surrounding the games will be far more exciting than the actual games.
Well, on the bright side there are few things that work as well for collapsing profitability as mass producing expensive hardware that nobody actually wants. While Nokia shareholders certainly and deservedly (for hiring someone with the profile of Elop with the similarities to such as Richard Beluzzo) got thoroughly screwed, this may become a significant lodestone that sinks Microsoft faster than it would risk otherwise.
