Then its hilarious!
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
In an Intranet that isn't the case. However, the bank really failed if it wasn't using subnets allocated for private use...
Well, I'm not sure how France's legal systems work, but a polygraph test in the US typically doesn't fly in court anyway. Usually they use a polygraph as a means of focusing on a suspect so they can acquire other evidence.
But, the students are not employees, and signed no waiver when they enrolled.
I agree. A school should not be able to claim copyright on a student's work because they're not employed by the school. Teachers, on the other hand, are employed by the school, and thereby their work should be the property of the employer.
We did the same thing...
If they're so concerned with it working off campus, have the badge shielded while outside the school, only take it out when needed. If wearing the badge offends their religion, permit them to have it in their pocket, ready for examination upon request.
Additionally, I dislike driving. If I could beam myself to work and back, I would. However, lacking Star Trek-era transport technology, I'll settle with not having to deal with the road while driving to work.
Being able to just tell the computer where I want to go, sit back, and play my 3DS while it takes me there would be amazing.
This posts smells of someone who doesn't want to pay for video games, so they instead attack others who DO wish to pay for their video games.
Not everyone subscribes to Richard Stallman's point of view of "free software is good, everything else is evil." There IS a time and place for non-free software. Verbally abusing me on Slashdot while posting as an Anonymous Coward will not change that fact.
Also, your use of Astroturfing is flawed. The definition is as follows (Wikipedia):
Astroturfing refers to political, advertising or public relations campaigns that are designed to mask the sponsors of the message to give the appearance of coming from a disinterested, grassroots participant. Astroturfing is intended to give the statements the credibility of an independent entity by withholding information about the source's financial connection.
The only financial connection I have with Valve is I spend money to buy video games that utilize their service. Otherwise, I'd consider myself an independent entity.
By the way, any idiot can put in dollar $ing$ in$tead of $'$! Just an FYI.
In addition, Valve has said they have the ability to unlock your content in the event Steam were to ever shutdown.
Yes, Steam is DRM. However, Steam is DRM that gives something back in return.
Being able to download your games as you please, store your saves (on supported games) in the cloud, automatic updates, and the ability to easily download mods for games (when supported), makes Steam more palatable when it comes to DRM. Most DRM schemes just take away from the user without giving anything back in return, Steam is different.
I'd just say, straight up, that traffic infractions caused by the software are the responsibility of the owner of the vehicle, or the person the vehicle was rented/leased/loaned to. If faulty software caused the infraction, then it should be the responsibility of the owner to sue the manufacturer.
My company uses Check Point FDE. Its good software, provides an easy way for the helpdesk to provide either a one time login or a password reset if needed in order to allow and end user into the system. OTLs and Password Resets can be audited, if needed.
Instead of taking personal responsibility for the security of their own account, they instead sue Blizzard. Blizzard CANNOT control the end user's computer (not as much as they wish they could, at least). Therefore, the security of your login credentials are the sole responsibility of the account holder. Blizzard can't keep your computer from getting infected with malware, falling for a phishing scam, or sharing your credentials with your little brother.
Okay, I'm guilty of not RTFA
