Unfortunately, Surface RT requires that secure boot must not be possible to disable. The only way to get Linux on these things is to install an additional key or an approved boot loader, and that can be very complicated.
Dumping 3rd rate technology in schools, in the hopes that children cannot tell the level of substandard they are presented with.
Indeed. I was not thinking straight in the face of this much stupidity.
I have zero chance of looking stupid, as long as you provide the reference. Just keep going.
So this is just a "mine is bigger" with any real-world impact. True, there are some things supercomputers can do well, but the same effect can be reached with distributed computing, which, in addition, makes the individual CPUs useful for a range of other things. Basically, building supercomputers is pretty stupid and a waste of money, time and effort.
And another deranged rant. Keep them coming, you are hurting your case not one bit!
The next such skeleton found will just go into the trash...
Nice deranged rant. You seem to have misplaced your rationality somewhere, probably when practicing Google-worship.
Nice how they left out that little fact. In many cases a simple Google search will already be enough. Where that fails, use the customer database of the phone service provider. I expect lifting the anonymity from a number will take significantly less than a minute, possibly less than a second.
This is classical lying by omission. It builds of the lack of understanding of the common person. De-anonymizing metadata is an easy and cheaply solvable and well understood problem.
You are looking at this from the wrong angle. It is extremely likely that this is not about CP at all, but that Google wanted an effective image censorship system. They realized that this may be hard to sell to the public, so they found CP as an easy solution. They can even use it for that only for the first few months (which will be almost invisible, as there cannot be a lot of CP accessible via Google, if there is anything at all...), then they an start to put in other pictures that are "undesirable", like pictures of political protests, police brutality, etc. And if anybody protests, they can just report them for searching CP. When the life of the one protesting has been ruined, they can just blame it on a "technical problem".
Quite ingenious, if utterly evil.
It seems unlikely that there is much (or any at all) CP that can be found using a search engine (have not tried, but others have), as everything findable with a search engine is easily reported to law enforcement and traceable back to the ones putting it there. This strongly indicates that Google wanted (or was coerced) to implement image censorship and is just using CP as an easy and plausible to the clueless excuse. It is, of course, completely bogus. Once you look at the facts, it makes zero sense. And it is by far not the first attempt to justify a general censorship infrastructure with CP. The infamous German stop-signs come to mind (by now abolished as completely ineffectual for the stated purpose, but the amoral scum that established the law is still in office).
Quite impossible. You are completely and utterly clueless of the difficulties involved _and_ you are clueless about your cluelessness. Look up the Dunning-Krueger Effect. You are on the far left of the curves.
This will increase child abuse. As soon as it becomes invisible, perpetrators are completely free to do whatever they like, as the public will not be aware it is a problem. The reason is that it addresses the wrong problem. Distribution of CP is a minor issue. Creation of CP (and all the child abuse that is not documented or does not end up on the Internet) is the real problem. It seems politicians have become so focused on distribution of CP, that nothing is being done anymore to fight actual child abuse. After all, distribution of CP gives nice and easy convictions and to hell with the children themselves.
Terrorists don't use email except to misdirect the authorities.
Most people putting out estimates are incompetent fans. Those that actually do understand the level of difficulty involved have long given up making public statements, as they well know it is not going to happen in the foreseeable future. Let the idiots have their dreams. Science and engineering are not a disciplines where majority-votes work.
