My first time seeing the share button where the comment count used to be. Oddly...it has caused me to stop reading the comments. Slashdot will always be an awesome memory for me...sad to see it go....really sad.
roads, which benefit almost everyone
Everyone benefits from the roads.
Now, I'm not necessarily in favor direct wealth or income redistribution (taking tax money from rich people and giving it directly to poor people to spend however they like)
Then shut up because there is nothing left to say.
Just goes to show the inanity of banning anything. People who cant handle having something in their possession are too stupid to afford having such things anyway...and the people who want them are going to get them. When the wack-jobs in government ban something it is only to assert their power...there is no other purpose. They are telling average people they cannot have something by making it difficult to obtain because they FEEL they should not have it for some reason. Childish.
"DirectDebits (a system to allow bills to be paid directly electronically from bank accounts, without cheques) between different banks"
Damn that sounds yummy...the US banking system is a troglodite as are the "regulators."
Are you new to earth? Banks have a dominance that you simply do not understand. There are always loopholes that they are very good at ensuring and exploiting. Banks love having big scary, complex, dirty systems and regulation in place becasue it keeps them in control of moving money...they make money by moving it and clearing transactions. Of course...I saw one just lose 2MM because they did it wrong....hehehehe....passed on to customers....doh!
Defense capability requires employing people on highly technical if not impractical projects to enhance, preserve, or maintain skill sets required to build practical projects. The press either doesn't get it or they do and are looking to create a story out of nothing. The post is naive.
That, and people (terrorists?) generally trusted that their SSL/TLS certs were protecting their communications. I have to assume the NSA got hold of those and forged a man-in-the-middle relationship. Even if they didn't I still have to assume they did and go through extra measures to protect my communications.
Why does the jet allow you to steer it into the earth, or a mountain, or perform any unsafe operation? Hell, they should damn near be able to land themselves if need be.
I think the lying is intentional. The ISPs help create the broadband maps and increase/fudge the coverage area so the government doesnt give them shit....and yes they do include 4G which they should not because it royally sucks and is very expensive (high price and capped).
It's more like $10 per GB...bare minimum.
Enhanced infrastructure is the grease that allows the wheels to turn easily for the benefit of all. Enterprise will continue without infrastructure. Everyone has derived their benefit from government created infrastructure allowing us to spend our time arguing about it instead of toiling away wasting time on braving the terrain to trade goods. Obama's statements were absolutely insane and inane. Enterprise built the infrastructure...period. Without enterprise the government is weak and ineffectual. Government is a system...it produces nothing.
At my last job IE was declared the "most secure" because my boss read an article sponsored by Microsoft that compared browser security. Yeah...seriously.
Loigitech MK 270...best Logitech available. $29
Pretty much the general profile of an infosec...no programming experience, and a meager grasp of infrastructure.
