Comment: Twisted logic (Score 1) 546 546

"This removes intelligence capabilities that have existed throughout the Cold War, and which may have helped to prevent a 'hot' nuclear war. Have the actions of Snowden, and, apparently, the use of weak encryption, made the world less safe?"

Its a twisted mind that thinks to be safe a country need to invade the minds of other nations rather than earning their respect and admiration.

Trust is the most valuable attribute, spying destroys trust.

Dont blame the messenger.

As part of AMD's QA process they first submit their driver and sample hardware to the FSF and debian for rigorous testing.
Once approved it will be submitted to Linus for inclusion in the official kernel.
Only when all parties are satisfied the product is stable and efficient and all 3 major OSS's will QA sign off on release of the product.

Oh wait, no, that isnt the plan at all.

Come on, of course 100% detection rate is possible! We don't know about any threats it doesn't detect!

But they also say they protect against the "unknown unknowns".

Claiming "100% protection against the unknown" really should get this company investigated for fraud.

Sometimes you get so close to something you lose sight of whats happening around it. Like the saying 'Cant see the forrest for the trees', or people arguing if the best editor is Vi or Emacs.

To be objective is really difficuly, you need to be able to see the details without losing sight of the big picture.

If the only book you read is the Bible, i would say you most certainly can NOT be objective about the bible.
