We have listened and we have heard loud and clear from your feedback that you want the best of both worlds."
Actually, we just want one world: The one we had before. And thank you kindly to get your creepy kinect out of our living rooms, thanks. We're already giving the paranoid, who thrive quite well in an anarobic environment, a veritable algae bloom of justified looking over their shoulder. You stepped in dog shit like you were laser guided, Microsoft.
I don't think your reputation can be salvaged at this point... most people have already decided on the PS4, and will be leary of signing up since you're just a firmware update away from returning to putting 'em over a barrel. And yes, we do think you'd do just that, once the furvor dies down. We saw your memo. We know how you think. You won't give up this easily on your DRM locked down to hell shitty ass XBone.
to be fair, it took them more than a week to crack it, but now that they've cracked it a hotspot password can be cracked in 50 seconds. a big difference I think.
Not to an attacker. Google "rainbow tables" sometime, and then realize that even strong passwords up to 16 characters in length are currently crackable in mere seconds. 50 seconds is pathetically slow for the sophisticated attacker today.
the operating system proposes four-to-six-character passwords generated from a default list of 1,842 words and then tags on a random four-digit number.
*facepalm* Dinopass does a better job of picking good passwords than Apple, and it's designed for children. For the largest company on the planet, this is really, painfully, sad. In other news, this isn't a weakness in the crypto per-se -- it's making a suggestion. The user still has the option of picking something more secure.. so it's not entirely Apple's fault if your hotspot gets p0wned.
Well, maybe because TFA is about Julian, and not about Wikileaks, or whistle blowing or government wrong-doing. I'd say it is you who are the one conflating the person with the deed right now. But then again, I guess that proves your point as well, in a way.
An irony not lost on me, I assure you.
Well, with that logic, Oracle never does anything evil.
Ah, to paraphrase, "there is a principle which is a bar against all knowledge and will never fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance -- and that is contempt prior to investigation." You can't simply say "because this person/group/organization has done so many evil things in the past, this has to be as well." You start engaging in that kind of thinking regularly and before you know it you'll be a talk show host or running for political office.
Assange knows what we all refuse to admit: Sweden might be his country of extradition, but his final destination is the cuban resort with the lemon-pepper fish and waterboard wednesdays.
Who is this royal "we" you speak of? I think it's common knowledge to anyone who has followed the story. As to those who don't, I believe Horace said it best: "Acclinis falsis animus meliora recusat."
Lots of people turn to raping after making speeches criticizing the primacy of the U.S. dollar, or revealing U.S. top secret documents. Hell, it wouldn't surprise me if Edward Snowden weren't considering raping some poor women right now, or molesting kids, or selling secrets to the Chinese, or kicking puppies.
In politics that if you can't attack the message, you attack the messenger. The United States has several organizations dedicated to discrediting people who come forward with allegations of impropriety against the government. It is a standard tactic used by many governments; Distributing disinformation is a time-honored military and political strategy.
And it is very effective. Just look at this thread: Some people have been completely taken in by it and the discussion now revolves not around the correctness of whistle blowing, or whether society benefits from an organization like wikileaks, or if what the government was exposed in having done was right or wrong... the entire discussion now centers largely on Julian.
... because someone noticed it.
That's true of all bugs, in the abstract. If a tree falls in a forest, and all that. This seems like a legitimate answer -- remember that they maintain a separate repository for their commercial offering. It's entirely possible someone fat-fingered during compilation.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
This wouldn't be the first time people have had issues with Cogent having saturated peering links. A common complaint among Cox customers is that latency is high to certain WoW servers, and saturated Cogent links has been found to be the cause - and they don't seem particularly interested in fixing it.
Cogent isn't the only ISP out there for Verizon to choose from. They deserve some of the blame. And if they are choosing to bandaid the solution by implimenting QoS on a service-preferential basis, they're attempting to cover up their poor decision here; "Hey, rather than ponying up the cash for a real internet link for our subscribers, let's just throttle the hell out of everything that isn't http traffic... it'll keep customer service calls down and our network will appear to still be just fine, while everything else goes to crap!" "Brilliant! Promote this man at once!" It doesn't help that, just like Obama and Bengazi, the appearance of impropriety by having a competing service while its competitors suffer on your own network looks exactly like what people are reporting it as: A dick move.
The landscape will look very different by year's end.
This can be said at any point since the invention of the cell phone. These are the facts as of today, and those are the ones that matter in a purchasing decision.
Seems to me all the disaster film (real and otherwise) I see shows dark, dark clouds over Manhattan.
Yup. From the city that brought you a ban on large fountain sodas to combat obesity comes solar panels to combat storms. o_O
There is an example of a purely unregulated market; EVE Online.
I play EVE. It's not a "very stable market". Goonsquad decided to attack miners in highsec. Mining is one of the main ways raw materials are generated for product generation, and when they did that, key resources to fuel starbases (oxygen isotopes, etc.) shot up massively in price. It would be the realworld equivalent of bombing oil pipelines and refineries.
As you get farther away from the main trade hubs and out into nullsec, prices can easily triple for commodities. And many alliances have policies to prevent anyone else from getting in on their lucrative cartels of freighter transports bringing needed supplies out.
But within EVE Online everyone is a professional trader, not some dude/mom/dad who just gambles some money on the stock market from behind his PC like it happens in the real world.
Like hell they are. Most people avoid serious trading because of the lack of easy access to information on sales volumes, pricing, etc, market volatility, and (unlike the real world) getting your products to one of the main trade hubs is risky. If blowing your ship to hell is cheaper than the cost of losing their ships to the police (concord), they'll blow it up. There's no jail in Eve -- in 15 minutes you're just like every other pilot again... and they'll loot your wreck and be on their merry.
I suggest that everyone plays EVE Online so that people learn about markets, about logistics, about profit per hour (just profit is for noobs).
And I'd suggest they play it to understand why government regulation and military protection of traders and merchants leads to vastly lower costs to society, and to see first hand how far the effects of market manipulation can travel.
And you're leaving out another critical component of Eve that isn't at all like the realworld: You're never sure who you're trading with. Identities can be traded, and because of this, and the interface mechanics, you can be buying supplies from your enemies one day, and selling arms to them the next.
And all of this "free market" love makes people incredibly distrustful, very manipulative, and economic power equates directly with military power. And what's more interesting... the distribution of wealth looks pretty much like it does in the United States: 1% controls over half the total wealth in the game... and that 1% can be very petty, self-centered, and short-sighted. Kings and kingdoms alike are created and destroyed every day -- there is no stability. In nullsec, you always have an exit strategy... a way to burn your assets and get out quick, because if the enemy doesn't fuck you over, your would-be kings claiming to be on your side will.
Eve is the wild-wild west, seen through the lens of a hundred spreadsheets. When it's a game, this can be fun. When it's real life... do you really want to go to bed one night and wake up the next with your house on fire and your neighbors looting each other, you, and everything else as the next Great New Power rolls in? Because this is a frequent occurrance in the game.
Okay, not that I'm disagreeing with anything you have to say but... what does any of that have to do with HFT?
AT&T - Fastest
Verizon - Reliable
TMobile - Cheapest
Sprint - Service
And compared to European vendors...
AT&T - Slow. Expensive. Unreliable.
Verizon - Slow. Expensive. Unreliable.
TMobile - Slow. Expensive. Unreliable.
Sprint - Slow. Expensive. Unreliable.
