My first cynical thought was "shoot them down if they blow up". But one bomber claimed to be on board, so they could have reasonably been concerned that the planes would be hijacked and used as missiles.
Yeah. If you make threats on Slashdot you get picked up by men in white coats instead of black helicopters.
``the number of escapees was so small as to be undetectable``.
This doesn`t exactly sound encouraging.
It means no one had died yet, as far as they know.
Sorry, you're wrong. By your definition, this post is programming because I'm encoding commands for what should be displayed on screen in the form of ascii commands. HTML and CSS are not programming, they're design.
And that's stock, not cash. I don't think even Google has 200B cash sitting around. For the sale to go through they'd have to give stock, and at a premium. Realistically you'd see FB owning 35-50% of the new company in an all stock deal. Just not feasible.
I doubt FB would take that offer, and I'm not entirely sure Apple actually could physically make it. But ignoring that it would be the worst possible merger you can imagine. There are no 2 more polar opposite cultures in the valley than those two.
Have you see FB's market cap? I'm pretty sure they don't.
It would get rid of the only piece of functionality worth having. The screen was tiny, hard to see, impeded your normal vision, and more or less utterly sucked. It couldn't be interacted with and couldn't take text input well. The only interesting thing about the device was the camera and what you could do with it in the realm of computer vision. I'd rather lose the screen and have a wearable camera with bluetooth to my phone for display and processing. I already have a far superior screen in my pocket and I can perform real input on it. The screen was useless.
A state spying on it's own citizens... shameful. I'd be outraged, unless of course they said it was part of the war on terror, or whatever China's current favorite boogeyman is.
What do we know about the security of systems such as onStar?
But will a wearing a dongle help?
I just watched it on my Roku3, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Hopefully it will get enough votes for Amazon to make the rest of the series.
If you can think of as many distinct sexual activities as there are symbols in your wrinting system, make a table and encode your secret messages as porn movies. (Spies will probably watch them, but probably also forget that they're supposed to be looking for messages.)
