Of my semen!
Fish actually DO eat plastic and yes they cannot digest it. Ask any fisherman who fishes artificial lures. Sinking is still a contributing possibility as well.
I think you listed them in ascending order of likelihood.
Maybe 5 is "he was just playing us for suckers on the campaign trail."
Isn't your suggestion what ALL politicians do? Obammers isn't any different.
If a hacker smoke pots in the woods and no one is around, does that mean it didn't happen? I am sure if you dug deep enough many of your neighbors are doing it at least occasionally; you just don't know about it. The mere fact that it's illegal most people don't go around with a blunt lit up promoting their usage.
Like trying to use your laptop in a public area (airport perhaps) that has cameras virtually everywhere. Which then would cause the user to either override the blur to cancel or not use their machine. What we need is a glasshole app that works with a blurring technology to decode the blurred screen. That way only the user with the glasses can read their screen. This could be allow customization to the user with some sort of private key shared with the glasses or also another type of public key shared among anyone who has that key can see the picture.
So this glasshole walks into a bar. I don't know what happened after that. It was either the intruding camera detection blur or the alcohol but all I then remember is talking about closing the analog hole and I soon realized I might be in a situation not to my liking.
You browse or use an app with 50+ tabs open at any given time
... true story my co-worker does this in almost every single app he has open that has tabs. It is sad ... that is all.
Slashdot users already promote their privacy via face and neck beards and have been for years.
ABOVE THE LAW
Or instead, maybe they should have hired architects, engineers, and/or developers and not "coders" or "programmers".
An anonymous reader writes "Researchers at Fraunhofer FKIE, Germany have presented a paper on covert acoustical communications between laptop computers. In their paper 'On Covert Acoustical Mesh Networks in Air', they describe how acoustical communication can be used to secretly bridge air gaps between computers and connect computers and networks that are thought to be completely isolated from each other. By using ad-hoc routing protocols, they are able to build up a complete mesh network of infected computers that leaks data over multiple hops. A multi-hop acoustical keylogger is also presented where keystrokes are forwarded to an attacker over multiple hops between different office rooms. The fundamental part of the communication system is a piece of software that has originally been developed for acoustic underwater communications. The researchers also provide different countermeasures against malicious participation in a covert acoustical network. The limitations of air gaps have been discussed recently in the context of a highly advanced malware, although reports on this so-called badBIOS malware could not yet be confirmed."
To be fair, the cops did pull out their iPhone thinking there would be an app for that but surprisingly there wasn't so the taser was the next closest thing.
Glad the populace on there will enjoy HTTPS as I have been explicitly been using for years now. I never wanted my pesky network admins sitting on the wire and watching what I post when I am at work
... errrrr on break ... errr I mean ...
Subsequently from that same corner you will still be able to obtain organically grown STDs from your local hooker.
