If they use them in criminal investigations the usage eventually becomes part of the public record when entered into evidence.

so how are these ten cases then so fucking secret? and they don't need to enter the drone data into evidence if they don't use it as an evidence. it's obvious they want to keep the drone use as a secret ace card in their book. only problem is that law enforcement isn't supposed to have budget or permission for such cards...

firing the entire team and canceling this product and production of 770(with linux) probably were connected(770 was out only short few years after this. and by the way all the guys connected to 770 r&d early on for some friggin reason thought that all the phones would be running it's OS by 2007, completely failing to understand how s60 phones managed to be cheap).

because hey, it's Nokia. such politics were always the name of the game after 2000. it wasn't about which teams were best at producing code, ui's or whatever. it was just politics. and as a consequence they had thousands of developers but still politics had made it so that key developers were all subcontractors(for pumping money to people whos companies those subcons worked for. mind you, the actual workers weren't getting the fat slices)

Yes. When you patent stuff, you have to disclose the way it works.

no you don't.

proof: this patent. go read it and then try claiming again that it discloses how it actually technically would work.

because it fucking doesn't. it just mentions that it would detect them. heck, if you were to put it in a scifi book you would have to be more precise about it or get scorned...

the patent is bullshit. it doesn't provide the magical means of how to technically decide that something is a viewer or not and the other stuff is obvious. it doesn't take a genius to come up with that hey it would be nice to detect if someone is viewing while you input your pin. but it would take a genius to sit in the box24 /7 to figure out if there was a camera somewhere or not!

"Intruder analysis module scans the input for viewers, and classifies them as either intruders or safe viewers. Intruder analysis module also scans the input for cameras or camera-equipped devices (e.g., SLR cameras, camera-equipped cellular phones, point-and-shoot cameras, building-mounted camera systems, etc.). Intruder analysis module may classify an object as a viewer or camera using any number of detection algorithms. For example, intruder analysis module may apply motion detection algorithms on the sensor information, and may classify any moving object as a viewer"

it can be an advantage, as long as it doesn't break down on boiling.

that way the cpu can stay at 49c and the system can be built to not require pumps, just by piping the steam to a cooling tower and from tower back to servers. however of course this needs redesign of the server and components, like said.

well it ends up with it being easy to prove that the earth isn't staying static on it's place.

or if it is then the whole universe works by magic and is just made to appear that earth goes around the sun and that the sun moves itself through the galaxy and...

and what does it matter what it says in the bible when the real issue is that these guys are trying to discredit science, theory of relativity etc by bullshitting people into believing that nasa is just trying to fool them into becoming heathens?

because they regard to the tribesmen as animals to conserve. not as humans to interact with like you do with humans, to educate, to help.

now, why don't we regard north korea as the same? I'm willing to bet the justice system in those tribes works just as fine as it does in NK.... the mortality rate goes up? well, how about vaccinating them - though a lot of the reason why things hit the fan might be just that their tribal system collapses as the village elders/strongest no longer have anything to base their power on since they don't have the most strength(since guns take out brute force from killing prowess) and its obvious pretty soon that they don't have the most knowledge either.

(furthermore, the population levels of the tribes are so small that they're doomed in the long run anyways)
