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).
They make more money on confusion. Most people don't know WTF they're buying anyway so they can more easily fleece someone in to overpaying for a sub-par processor which will be blamed on the manufacturer's name on the cover not theirs.
People just buy shiny (Apple/Alienware/"Ultrabooks",etc), cheap (Chromebook/Netbook), or at a certain price point without a clue until it doesn't do something they want and then they will blame everything but themselves. I see this shit every day; most consumers are ignorant and think computers are appliances.
but make sure you have a (preferably handwritten) transcript for her too. Who knows if your videos (or their formats) will survive while a bank lock box and some hand written notes on carefully selected paper will likely weather time better.
As for the rest, tell her what YOU think is important for her to know. You can't ask us for that - and I somehow doubt that will have much to do with your education nor station in life.
as smart as you are take orders/be penned up/allow itself to be slaughtered en masse for food/etc? A different but familiar Orwellian outcome
I guess I can't threaten to move there anymore as the US pot boils over.
One year vaper, previously 20 year smoker. I've had the medical labs done to show how much damage was undone in just one year.
At 41, I can run farther and faster, keep up with young folk better than most of my non-smoker friends of the same age. 3 years ago this was not the case.
the NSA just got another data center?
years ago. Please explain how uBlock is better.
I *NEVER* see ads (or get the malware from them) on the machines that use Adblock Edge in Firefox, how does it get better than that?
is anyone that they see as threatening TLA power - particularly for the FBI (communism anyone?).
this is the truth. Anyone who was using adblock plus before the sell out knows this and uses the fork, Adblock Edge, instead.
from when adblock plus did. Use it instead.
You mean like the elliptic curve cryptography that they backdoored and then pressured the NIST in to backing so that millions of people's data was both available to them and also potentially at risk to any 3rd party to find out about it? The one that's specifically mentioned in the article?
"But the agency appears to have created its own back door into encrypted communications. The computer industry, both in the
United States and abroad, routinely adoptssecurity standards approved by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). But in 2006, NIST put its seal of approval on one pseudorandom number generatorâ"the Dual Elliptic Curve Deterministic Random Bit Generator, or DUAL_EC_DRBGâ"that was flawed. The potential for a flaw was first identified in 2007 by Microsoft computer security experts. But it received little attention until internal NSA memos made public by Snowden revealed that NSA was the sole author of the flawed algorithm and that the
agency worked hard behind the scenes to make sure it was adopted by NIST. "
Yes, beneficial to society indeed...
TL;DR - Money talks (except when you ask the NSA how much they get/spend).
when they started using third-parties to fulfill a bunch of order that they put their name on. Just another of their shitty anti-consumer business decisions along with the slow-frog-boil that is Prime and the shit filled walled garden that is bootloader locked Kindle.
