The best way to keep inspectors from looking the other way for cash under the table is to be able to see when they're looking the other way. This also protects the restaurant owners too since the inspector can't threaten them over something imaginary because it will have to be on the video recording to back up their statements.

These accidents all seem to stem from the drivers and their carelessness. From crashing through brick walls to hitting large chunks of debri in the road rather than going around it. All Tesla has done is made their vehicles less prone to the driver being careless. (good move none the less)

Next up - Tesla cars catch fire after drivers park them in the ocean.

+ - How to fix Slashdot Beta? 17

Submitted by Forbo
Forbo (3035827) writes "Since the migration to Slashdot Beta was announced, it seems all meaningful discussion has been completely disrupted with calls to boycott and protest. Rather than pull an Occupy, what can be done to focus and organize the action? What is the end goal: To revert entirely to the previous site, or to address the problems with the new site?"

As we improve our ability to keep private things private the government's orginizations will find it easier to snoop by gaining physical access first. There's no doubt we're on the slippery slope. I have to wonder, which orginization broke into his apartment? Or maybe it was a combined effort and they are sharing in the information gained, if any.

Cookie Monster is one of my must have plugins for Firefox. You can easily see at a glance where the cookie usage stands for the site you are on and can then adjust as needed. Using a default of rejecting all can be a bit more work though but isn't so bad once you have white listed your regularly used web sites.

If you hold down on the thumbnails the option to pin the site is there so that it always shows when opening firefox. Simply pin down 6 sites you don't mind displaying at startup. Also, there is an addon called clean quit that can be set to clear out history, cookies and such when you choose it as an option to exit the browser.

I used to think the same thing until I ended up paying for some charges I didn't make. Capital One's team of investigators concluded that the charges were my responsibility. I've been running Linux on the desktop for over 10 years now so I know it wasn't a trojan or some other malware on my end giving up the card number - it had to be an online service somewere that was hacked. I never found out who or how. I only ended up owing money for iPower Web hosting (would never in a million years use their service to start with), various gourmet coffee that was delivered to my house (ok I do like coffee but still wouldn't have ordered it online), video professor videos on using Microsoft Office (you know, if I should ever go back to Windows this may be handy???) and colon cleanser. WTF? I don't think they really did any investigating - just waited for a bit and then said it was my fault. Capital One offers no protection.
