I still don't understand these privacy concerns. I can't think of many public places I could go near where I live where I wouldn't be being recorded anyway. As soon as I step outside my front door I am being recorded by at least two neighbours security cameras and many businesses have them too. I am not saying this loss of privacy is acceptable, just that the Google Glass doesn't really make it any worse.
So, according to you, every time you scan for wireless networks on your computer you are violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act?
That is like saying anyone who makes realistic paintings is plagiarizing the natural world. There is nothing wrong with using your talents to create a copy of something that already exists using a new medium.
And you sell products, not franchises. The art and music for obsolete games should clearly be public domain even if derivative works are not allowed to be advertised as "Mario" to prevent brand dilution.
Why not make a new style of game rather than ripping off the work of previous sidescrolling platformers? In fact why not make an entirely new form of entertainment rather than simply copying what previous game designers have done?
Just because something already exists doesn't mean that bringing the technology behind it up to date isn't a good thing. Many companies port old code written in obsolete languages to more modern alternatives.
I seriously doubt that is what the researchers meant. I think they are saying the passwords will be in clear text when they reach Apple's servers, not that they are not sent over HTTPS.
And as always, there is a relevant XKCD: http://xkcd.com/750/
Glorious headmaster demonstrated great strength in our PE class today. He through the shot put over 3 kilometers, a new world record! The capitalist pigs at the Guinness Book of Records won't recognize his claim as they are jealous of his glorious prowess in all areas of education.
And publicly bullying someone online can be done completely anonymously. What exactly does wasting 40k solve?
This all seems very misleading. It took me quite a while to figure out that it is only talking about the code for the Python interpreter, not all open-source programs written in Python.
We knew this was an issue from when Mega was first launched. All this guy has done is made a pretty useless bookmarklet. Obviously if there is code on your computer that has access to the key and can be changed remotely then whoever can change the code can steal the key. Luckily Mega provides an API so this is a non-issue provided you use a client on your local computer.
So parents should be expected to sacrifice their child's education because the public school in the area is bad? Yeah, no parent is going to do that.
It's only recently that there is more enforcement of it.
And rightly so. I hate having to cross the entire motorway to overtake someone in the middle lane going 65.
What? You really think the article portrayed the ability to target ads to those with medical conditions in a positive way? That sure as hell isn't how I read it.
