I'm with you guys. I lived overseas when I signed up for Grand Central, which became Google Voice, so I could get a US number for my mom to call me on, that I would route to a skype number (it's harder to keep the same skype dial-in number if you're as forgetful as me at keeping a balance on it).
Now I have Google Voice going to an app on an old iPhone with no cell service, and use WiFi for 99% of my calls, occasionally sending the traffic to any number of 'burner' phones if I won't be near WiFi.
The funny thing is I had never noticed the MMS issue.
When I'm at the computer, I use the Hangouts plugin for chrome to make and receive calls and it works well, where before I had to be logged into the right Gmail account and have the page open for it to ring. If you use Chrome, I highly recommend it.
How would you guarantee such a tracking device resists all possible sabotage efforts?
Not all possible, but 99% of them: Make it inaccessible from the inside of the aircraft.
Why go through the effort of 'hiding' the plane?
So they don't shoot you down. If you wanted to commit suicide in this matter, you probably don't want just the plane, you want to fly it into something (9/11 probably gave you the idea).
So no, it doesn't add up - unless some nation shot it down and doesn't want to admit it. But that's as much speculation as anything else.
Wow. That's a load of bullshit.
Actually, that's quote from Moses, mumbling under his breath, as he was coming down from Mt Sinai.
I've never demanded anyone start a real war for Cersei's fictional c***.
That makes one of us.
"Listening to sermons and reading religious works like the Bible may also invoke a cognitive benefit. "You're exercising your higher cortical function, thinking about complex concepts that require some imagination,"
I've got a book by Isaac Newton called, "Optiks" that will give you all of that, without making you want to go out and kill non-believers.
It's also great if you have a mother-in-law on the other side of the world. The cost per-minute for calls from phone to phone (she just cannot seem to figure out Skype) is as good as any provider.
My wife talks for an hour and it's just a few cents. Or at least that's how it seems. Plus, we can do all kinds of other tricks with voice to text and other things.
I was about to get really pissed if this story was about Google pulling the Voice service.
Those are for when you are driving and it is so much easier to just leave a VM. Also, when the background noise in the car makes a dictated e-mail look like it written by a drunk, illiterate wombat.
Nazi propaganda must be beaten, not hidden. The best way to discredit an idiot is to hand him a microphone and let him speak.
Further, hiding it makes it impossible for later generations to recognize the very seductive ideas when they reappear, later, without the "NAZI" label on them.
It's a classic example of the adage about being doomed to repeat history if you fail to learn from it. How can you learn from it if it's censored away?
The idea that the police can simply delete what they don't like or switch of the device when ever they feel like it, is a very false premise in terms of the law. Lost evidence immediately creates doubts about the veracity of statements against those who lost or purposefully failed to gather evidence. As the public and hence juries becomes more aware of the requirement of police officer to record all their policing interactions with the public they will demand that evidence, when police fail to submit it for what ever reason, it will place great suspicion on their actions and create the doubt necessary to break their prosecutions.
Not that bringing up these questions is not important, it is very important in the creation of successful secure devices that will protect the public whilst providing evidence of crimes. It will also help with the recording of crime scenes ie multiple view points. Storage of data should reflect statute of limitations for the crimes applicable, keeping in mind it does not need to be 28 frames a second, lower speed higher resolution images would be preferable.
Both are working to target the same concept, tying the operating system to the device. They both hate the idea of the consumer believing the operating system that came with the device is disposable and can be readily replaced with the OS of your choice, say a flavour of Linux. Two OS's on a device, hmm why not three or more specifically why not replace those two with a third alternate OS. So basically both companies are using the size and predatory power to try to keep other Operating systems out of the market, either as pre-installs of post installs.
"I can write this in a slow, OO language using OPM (other people's modules) and it'll be quick to target, bug free, lightweight, and fast. Because, uh, faster hardware and, uh, derp" Also, "I don't need to learn C, I have (fill in the blank with the latest fad language that purports to save programmers from having to really learn to program)" and also "I can use the (fill in the blank with the latest agile / tricky / ultra-testable) technique to Make My Code Shine!"
Oh yeah, and this charmer: "I don't have to bugfix version-2 or older, it's perfectly reasonable to expect everyone to upgrade."
