For me: 1) Have a very rare yet valuable skill set 2) The regional office where I work gets downsized and closed. They don't want to lose the skills I have, and I don't want to move across the continent. So working from home it is.
Unfortunately, tying a string around my wrist and attaching it to the tablet isn't very convenient or stylish. Butter fingers is a curse I just have to live with
I'm not keen to have spinning parts in a device that I drop a couple times a day.
Isn't blacklisting / whitelisting a bit of an obvious solution? I'm sure someone could have come up with that without opening a competition. I was expecting something more inventive like scoring callers based on frequency of calls, number of different and type of numbers called (residential vs business), attempts to manipulate or block call ID, etc.
Why would that be obvious? Waves mean there's something working on that liquid mechanically. Titan is tidally locked, so they wouldn't be tidal waves, and if they were visible in this particular image, then they would need to be very large waves. It would be far from obvious to expect to see waves in such an image.
Never mind. Those lines are even more difficult to see over the land but are present. Must just be an artefact of the method used to acquire the image or stitch it together.
Coooool. You can see vague horizontal lines on the sea. Waves perhaps?
Considering this is radar and not visible spectrum, it isn't street lights. Clearly they pave their roads with something radar-reflective.
Would the manufacturers really incur the extra cost and extra power consumption of another component for this reason alone? I'm sure there must be more benefit than a couple seconds gain on GPS acquisition.
Civilizations likely have a greater chance of appearing now than in the past. The earlier universe had many more doomsday events such as GRBs and supernova and a metalicity too small to form many rocky planets (though there were some undoubtedly). The current universe is much more suitable to life as we know it and we are probably arriving just in time for the golden age of civilization birth.
I would expect this to be the case because of the tendencies of large stars to die quickly and a steadily increasing population of small stars that can live extremely long lives. I think the universe has a bright future with small dim stars.
All you'd be accomplishing is changing which part of an untrusted network your traffic is carried by. As long as the traffic traverses Internet infrastructure that you don't personally control, it is untrusted and is subject to monitoring. Unless you set up a VPN tunnel to each website you frequent, this will remain a problem. VPN is no answer.
Just in time for Microsoft to kill
.NET. This OS clearly has a bright future.
That's why these attacks are coordinated across multiple cities. Pull as much money out as you can before the anomaly is investigated and stopped.
The breaches are happening at the ATM processor, which in the ATM's point of view is a trusted network. It's not usually the ATM's fault. However, retarded ATM deployers often leave the ATM's management password as default and don't bother changing the physical locks from the generic one-size-fits-all key, which makes compromising an ATM easy, it's just not nearly as profitable as compromising a whole network all at once.
