They already said they want any mobile OS that doesn't allow the government to shutdown and make worthless any device that a protester owns. They know they constant huge occupy protests are just going to get larger and more powerful so they keep demanding to be able to brick devices own by the freedom fighters. Expect the contributors to this Firefox scheme to be put in prison for challenging the Republicans this way.
Wasn't this a Democrat suggested bill? Why are you blaming the Republicans? H.R. 4065 right?
You approach closer and close to the "absolute truth", but never get there, and every pi microns there is an e chance that there will be a step function and the whole convergence has to start again.
Um... Your argument is irrational... Or, at very least based on irrational numbers...
If you can't handle other people having opinions, your views are weak.
Excellent point! One that is lost on most in more than just scientific arguments.
The world runs on oil.
The world runs on long-chain hydrocarbons. They could come from the air... (snip)
Using *what* process? From AIR? Really?
Oh you mean photosynthesis... Ok..
Fermilab struggles to find enough funds to maintain their conference Audio Visual equipment and has discontinued providing video projectors for lectures to save money. Facing difficult economic conditions and funding shortages has forced a re-prioritization of how money is spent on technology.
"Others are claiming this is about not wanting to use Power Point," said one A/V technician "but I can assure you it is about saving money. We are simply not replacing any projector lamps and as existing equipment stops working we are taking down the projection screens and uncovering the chalk boards they cover."
"Chalk is cheep!" said another.
Manufacturer can do that if they want. Apparently LG and ATT elected not to do so on my phone. I'm personally OK with it locked down as there is really very little I want that requires root. (Only one thing comes to mind and it was decidedly optional). I just want the phone to work, and so far it serves me well without root.
But that is me. Your mileage and desire for root may be different.
So does this mean we can sue this vendor for damage their tool causes? Hope so.
You knew it was coming (if not already here); Android virus infections, or more likely malware is the thing. But now that they have Android locked down pretty well, shouldn't be a huge issue. These days, just rooting your Android device is not as simple as running some root kit. You have to actually flash new firmware on my 2 year old phone to root it now.
But, really, what's the big deal? Just installing apps is a crap shoot already. Most do things with your personal information that would have desktop users up in arms if it got out. On smartphones they just put it in the EULA and it's a free for all. You READ those things right? Yea, me too.
I have to remind you that this was about a location database developed though the scanning of car license plates as they move around on public streets. Companies collect and sell this information, mainly to people trying to get cars back for lean holders when their customers have failed to make payments. And the question is about what could happen if there are errors in this location data.
How about if you lose your job because you can't get to work because your car was erroneously towed.
Um, how/why would a database of scanned in license plates get *your* car towed when it shouldn't be? A Repo man isn't going to tow something unless he KNOWS it's the car he wants by checking the Make/Model, Color, Plate and VIN. How does inaccurate information in the location database get the wrong car towed? Hint: It won't. Your car might be repossessed in error, but this is NOT the fault of the location database, the Repo man or the lean holder made the mistake. Strike one. Next!
How about if you get frostbite because it's 7 degrees outside with a wind chill factor of -18 and you cannot drive home because your car is gone.
Same issue as the above.... Repo guys are going to check the license plate number and VIN before they hook up and tow. This information (plate and VIN) comes from the lean holder NOT the location database.... Strike two... NEXT!
How about if your car is damaged during the towing process because the tow truck driver, who took your car when he shouldn't, is an idiot.
If your car is towed in error, sue, you will recover any costs. If it's damaged while being towed, sue. They have insurance for this. But, again, this is NOT the fault of the location database gleaned from scanning license plates on public streets. The repo folks are going to check the car's description, plate and VIN (likely in that order) to make sure they match the lean holder information. Towing the wrong car is not something they want to do because it could be considered a felony. Strike three... You are OUT.
Care to bat again?
I'm pretty sure the number of issued BTC is just an agreed upon number that could be easily expanded. It would take a revision of the protocol to allow more, but as I understand this, we are talking about changing a defined value and worst case would be a recompile of everybody's software.
Ahh.. You have hit on the long term issue I had with BTC. I've read stories where people have lost their coins which will take them out of circulation, and the problem you talk about is further reason for coins to be lost.
One could argue that they would just issue new currency to miners like they do now, but that's a problem too.
She's the eleventh person in the financial industry to commit suicide this year.
OK, so bankers are throwing in the towel. So what about lawyers?
But I will wager that in the ODD instance where such data is used there will be more evidence required to even bring a charge. Just saying that some license plate was scanned at location X at the time of the crime won't be enough. Especially if that data was collected by a company for other reasons than solving a crime.
The price of the lawyers not withstanding, I would contend that there where *other* causes in your hypothetical that drew the criminal charge, not just an error in the license plate data. But you are describing a situation where there is more than just bad information in a database, but there would have to be additional evidence. How's this the database's fault?
Not to mention that the chances of there being bad information that leads to the wrong person being charged is pretty slim. DA's don't take cases unless they think there is a chance of getting a conviction. So is it possible? Yea, hypothetically, but extremely unlikely in real life. If it happens to you, I suggest you sue the company who provided the bad information in civil court to collect your legal fees. If their data was responsible, I'll bet you can collect for your legal fees and possibly a bit for mental anguish too.
You obviously are missing the point.
I'm asking for a hypothetical situation where license plate scanning errors could harm somebody. I don't see any situations where this would be true so your claim that it *could* is not washing with me. Come on, invent something if it is so obvious that I'm wrong.
