I suppose they "could" do it, in the same way that I "could" build and manufacture my own Intel computer chip. There isn't any big secret preventing it, but it's nevertheless takes a lot of infrastructure and facilities and smart minds to bring it all together.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
"Killing the enemy is not murder."
Hey, at least we don't send people to guantanamo bay with no trial, and execute people later found innocent, spy as much on the populace as the NSA. Australia has plenty of stupidity like illustrated here, but the US shouldn't throw stones inside its glass house.
I'm outraged by this law, sure.
But I'm doubly outraged that I had to read on slashdot that this just passed the senate and there has been ZERO coverage of this in the mainstream media. Shame on you Fairfax, News Ltd and ABC. You went to sleep and betrayed us.
I don't know what your definition of "dirty" is, but there are going to be scenarios where you need your data cleaned.
Like the iPhone, every 2-3 years probably. More often if you want to be bleeding edge.
LOL. More likely they said "Hey we paid all this money to Mondaine for the swiss rail clock rights, let's make more use of it".
I disagree. The people who thought watches were primarily for telling the time gave up (in large part) on wearing them long ago, in favour of their smartphone. Those people never wanted something wrapped around their wrist to tell the time when their phone was good enough, and this won't win them back. The people who still wear watches just like watches, and those folks will think this Apple watch is crass. Why do I need to talk into my wrist for a reminder when I can just as well do it with my phone (which I have to be carrying anyway).
I wear a watch because I like it. I could care less if it has a date window, stopwatch, day, calendar, or whatever. I wear it because I like it, all those things are just gimmicks.
Most swiss watches I dare say, are not of the super expensive kind. What innovation do you want from a mechanical watch? It tells the time, that's it. When I buy a new watch (and I have many), I could care less about innovation.
LOL, true, but that watch is a heavy lump.
I don't think their expense is their allure. Watch people often like watches in all price ranges.
I don't think we should be taking advice about the potential success of the apple watch from someone who abhors iPhones.
A rainbow table might not be practical for you and I, but might be practical for the NSA. But as you say, it assumes you have the passwd hash table already. In the old days it was exposed in
I don't doubt the NSA has been doing nefarious things since the 50s, but I suspect their more outlandish things like this have taken shape since 9/11.
Either it's sloppy work, or a devilishly clever band of Russian hackers. You choose.
