So much for fighting for freedom of speech and American values..

Seems to me that perhaps the US military is protecting a country that is against human rights and against freedom of speech.

But I am sure this article is trolling. I say this as I can't believe a US warship doesn't already have encrypted Internet channels back to DC. Sounds like a hoax.

Easiest way is for getting a world phone with data capabilities and don't use the local fascist government repression of the peoples systems.

I am a Galaxy Tab 10.1 owner and for the most part satisfied one at that. But hey, consumers should be against this patent extortion. I have used an iPad and Android, fact is this is just Apple patent trolling."

First, you have to prove it was mankind and is harmful. Let me toss some facts:

Recent melting glaciers in BC contain trees only 7600 years old. This means the ice isn't long time permanent. Be you creationist or evolutionist man survived and multiplied well 7600 years ago with a warmer climate. Most of the antarctic and arctic ice is recent ice as in less than 10,000 years old. Human species evolved when it was warmer.

Mars polar caps, Io ice melts, my SUT did it? Hm, prove it. There is a stellar component and tax-me-more eco freaks ignore the obvious. Ignore sunspots and stellar activities? Come now. Seelctive science is generally junk science.

Hey, I will not even argue warming exists!!! But is it bad to have say NWT turn into farm-able and livable land? Or ferns to grow again on the north slope of Alaska?

Let me ask, why does eco junk science always talk of gloom and doom for tax bucks? Yep, it is about the money for most eco freaks, it isn't about empirical unbiased opens science at all. Just political BSing the outlook for fear taxes today. 99% of what we are fed in the media is political jousting in the ruse of science, about money, taxes and power. Pretty hard to sort it out too.

People are getting sick of the BS and shutting down. Be it right or wrong.

Comment: GPS and Boobs (Score 1) 3

Always nice to know where the boobs are, but how few people realize how much information can be embedded into photographs and videos....GPS, host keys, IP addresses including upstream routers, your name and anything else it can get/has in it. Can be obfuscated or encrypted too so don't rely in "strings" to detect it.

It is deliberate too as many manufacturers embed this. Microsoft will on any video it touches. And a lot of times it isn't obvious, might be your host key where Microsoft can lookup your IP and registration, maybe right back to the store you bought it and credit card you used. Can be done with SIP phone calls too.

Even hackers miss it.

And why open source is only source I trust with critical stuff even though I don't do anything wrong.....while it too isn't perfect, it isn't as lame on personal security as many commercial devices and OSes.

I submit the loss of economic freedom is the loss of Liberty is occurring. Oh, they will sell it on reducing government corruption, illicit drugs, less tax evasion and the like, but later the screws will be turned on the people. A step toward world wide economic slavery of mankind."

They will not bother, US Surpreme court or any is just to slow and it gets leaked to the world.

RCMP and CSIS are above the law. This is more like a ruse to come clean. Wasn't just USA that had McCarthyism. Canada is a statism state, between Saudi and USA. Government in Canada has monitored Canadians without warrants for 5+ decades at least.

Cops here can spy on anyone except the corrupt MPs, judges and the well connected. General population is wide open.

BTW, RCMP only get their man if it is politically approved.

BButlerNWW writes "In a blogpost on the company's website, VMware reminds customers of the company's market-leading position in private cloud deployments, and seemingly takes some jabs at open source cloud platforms such as OpenStack, CloudStack and Eucalyptus, marking what could be an intensifying open source vs. proprietary cloud debate. As the open source players have been "jockeying for position," VMware's network of providers that offer public cloud compatibility with on-premise VMware-powered infrastructure has surpassed 100 vendors, it announced. The blogpost plays on a theme of a fairy tale, equating the open source providers as "the ugly sisters.""

I just wish they showed the cars up close afterwards. While both are trashed, it's clear from the video that the A pillar just collapses on the Bel Air and the driver is probably crushed to death. Showing that (or whatever you can film) versus the still mostly intact cockpit of the Malibu would have driven the point home really well.

It isn't really a fair comparison. Years of rust, fatigue, grinding and polishing. The Bel Air is a graceful but very old lady. Then you put it against a newer Malibu is like having a 17 year old go after the 95 year old grandmother. Who do you think will win?

But in any case, pretty safe bet not many of today's Malibu vehicles, if any at all, will make it 51 years in running order. It certainly doesn't have the class.
