It would only take bandwidth if it crossed the divide between ATT and the customer, and then was lost. But if there are packets getting lost at that point, one would presume an equal number would be lost going outwards, in which case the customer would record them sent, but ATT would not. In other words, any packet loss should be a net nil.
Yes, the whole point of sending folks into the space station is to do experiments in microgravity. Otherwise, might as well stay home and watch TV.
Here's what you should do: nothing at all. Life is too short and there are better battles to fight.
Or at least, losses incoming and outgoing should cancel each other.
Errm, if any packets get lost that should *REDUCE* his billing, not increase it.
I don't buy it. A petrol station might have an irreducible overhead of evaporation in storage, but the point is when I fill up one litre or one gallon, that's how much I expect to get. If there is irreducible overhead, that's their problem.
I can picture a scenario that if they were encrypted, the recovery key would be lost, or the person holding it would die or resign or quit and suddenly all the backups are unrecoverable. You can say ok, so the key should be kept somewhere secure, but where? When you answer that question, then why not put the actual backups there? It's not like you could have just one key forever either. That would be insecure to never change it. But to change it means having some filing system to keep the whole list of them from years and years back and storing them so people can find them. Then how are you going to encrypt THAT?
Was the glibc boffin who said it looked unexpoitable just expressing a casual opinion, or was he actually trying to wriggle out of fixing it? If the former, then its not very interesting. If the latter, then yeah it's a problem.
I suppose, but if your data is only small, a good OS will probably put it all together at the beginning of the drive anyway.
Plus, OSes perform better when they have got a lot of space to work with. So not all usage scenarios would improve.
Perhaps, but its hard to see how linking it to a hardware ID is especially secure. A hardware ID is probably just a sequential number, whereas a proper security token would be an encryption key.
Anti-neutrality laws are marxist in the same way that anti-monopoly laws are marxist. But thinking people recognise that you have to restrain rampant capitalism sometimes in order to maintain correct competition and market relationships.
How would you hardwire it anyway? I highly doubt the iPod hardware is modified. So that means there is some kind of security token on the iPod. But the iTunes/iCloud backup should backup any application data. This should be secure AND allow recovery in the case of loss.
An interesting case of how one US state could change worldwide products.
How is the human race ever going to develop the genes needed to resist a modern diet unless we let fatty burgers, salty fries, and sugary drinks kill off the ones with weak wills?
" If you're paying that much attention to the food you're eating, you're probably not throwing garbage down your throat like most fat people do."
Yeah, but what is "garbage"?
One might argue that garbage is anything not natural, exactly like the Paleo's say.
The reality is italian bread and cold beer will tend to make you fat, if you don't carefully control quantities. We all know that many people don't control their input of beer and bread, and we see the results.
But you probably won't get obese just eating steak or pork chops. It's just not feasible to eat that much steak and pork chops, because they make you full quickly and they keep you full for a long time. And the mozzarella cheese is ok too. As an animal fat its digested slowly.
