Where do you draw the line? I understand that it is illegal to intercept mail, but we are talking about foreign exports which are under tight scrutiny.
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 my experience, the difference between VPS and cloud is the orchestration system. Cloud usually means that the customer can create and launch instances at will, while VPS need to be created by a human before releasing to the customer.
You get what you pay for. Also while related, I don't think VPS fits directly into the cloud conversation. This would be no different then a collocation getting DOS'd
I am very curious how they are running a public cloud if they themselves are not server huggers.
This was posted in 2010. In the last 4 years everyone has stopped buying any and all electronics in fear. I wonder if anyone will ever use a computer again.
Citation? Not that I expect an AC to respond, but this sounds like you pulled it out of your ass.
"Sorry Mr President, we have confirmed there is an armed nuclear weapon heading to Washington, but it is arriving by mail so there is absolutely nothing we can do to prevent it. Trust me, an anonymous coward told me so."
Yes, because accusing China of espionage is fucking crazy! These people need to put their tinfoil hats back on if they think China would ever spy on foreign businesses and government. The United States is the only country that is able to spy, because Snowden said so!
The blindness of the sheeple is amazing. I am sure you denied that any spying was plausible before the leaks, and now you are denying its possible for anyone other than the US because of the leaks, and your opinion will change next week when another leak is published. To those who use common sense, you can see the larger picture here. This is nations doing what nations do. The US is not alone, nor is China the only other culpable country. This is being done by everyone with the resources to do so, and those who don't really wish they did.
We may have some growing pains, and might not stay as dominant was we were post WW2. I don't think we will fall as a nation though, we have too many natural resources and big bombs.
How much space do you need for your computer?
250GB SSD's are about $100 if you catch them on sale, some even cheaper. The prices are dropping by the day, they were twice the price last year. I expect 500GB to be around $150 here soon.
Say what? Everyone here keeps telling me that RAID is backups!
You should be forcing SSL from the start and advertising SSL URL's only. Having mixed content leads to MITM attacks using stuff like sslstrip. While your points are mostly true, it is just shitty practice that you shouldn't expect from such a large company.
this is a product designed for the 0.0001%.
Come on now...
Society worldwide is changing towards renewable energy. While Tesla's cars might not be perfect right now, they are a step in the right direction. It is so hard to go up against an established industry, especially when they have such large lobbying budgets. I hope you can understand that this isn't just about Tesla, it's about new businesses being able to compete.
And for the 0.0001% give me a break. These cars may be expensive and considered a luxury item, but it doesn't mean they cannot be afforded by middle to upper middle class. Also, new technology is expensive, that's how it works. If they don't sell any new cars due to archaic laws, how do you expect the price to drop?
This topic is very interesting to watch unfold, and I think many slashdotters would agree with me.
Good job buddy
Due to the fact that this exploit leaves no traces in server log files, we have concluded that there is no evidence of an attack on our servers.
This is the dumbest post I've seen.
Slashdot allows users to post, which requires a keyboard. Does that make Slashdot a keylogger/trojan?
