...how fast can it mine Bitcoins.
For that price, it had better hash at 1 GH/s! Money, money, money, money!
My credit union offers two factor authentication. Could a Bitcoin exchange do the same? You bet. But they haven't. The fact is that it's easier to find legit and robust exchanges and institutions in USD than BitCoin.
I believe you're correct in that the exchanges don't use two factor authentication. However, my Bitcoin wallet is an online one (yeah, not so secure, but I only do a little bit of mining...less than $50 in there right now) that definitely does use two factor authentication through the Authy app. Quite simple really, and the exchanges should definitely use something like this.
A lot of people I know are using their personal smartphones for work, including me. Check on a server, bring up an app. Check out the WiFi, bring up another app. I have tons of apps on my personal phone that have saved countless hours diagnosing issues
Fact is, an awful lot of employers should be kissing our asses for using our own personal devices to be more productive at work.
And how do you pronounce it yourself?
It's pronounced "meem". That's the only way I've ever heard it pronounced, and even by Dawkins himself.
"'We're able to view just everything that they do,' Bill Diggins, U.S. chief for the Verizon Wireless marketing initiative, told an industry conference earlier this year.
All I have to say is that guy better have a huge jock strap. The size of his balls must be staggering to make a comment like that.
Windows is not intended to be used in life-critical situations such as medical hardware or nuclear reactor control.
I totally agree. However, this, to me, is the main question: Why in the FUCK would these devices be connected in ANY way, shape, or form, to the INTERNET in the first place??!?!? That's just asking for it, no way around it. It's stupid, careless, and shouldn't be allowed under any circumstance (barring VPN via a WIRE and ONLY when absolutely necessary). We're dealing with people's health and lives here, and this is a totally preventable situation.
I can understand the issue with USB drives, but there need to be policies in place that prevent the use of them unless absolutely required.
Delivered at exactly the wrong time, this can induce an arrhythmia.
No kidding. That asystole arrhythmia is a real bitch.
