Not only america. America is also pushing the TPP which wants to bring the copyright bullshit into poor countries as well. For nothing in return.
now factor in the cost of maintaining spinning disks, powering them, cooling them, and datacenter space....
hardwired switches are expensive. it's all touch screen or iphone apps nowadays.
what are you talking about? These $200 kits are plug and play. They're configured to record 24/7 even. You just need to plug the cameras in, and you're done.
Zoneminder needs a beefy PC for more than a few cameras. It's extremely inefficient.
Ubiquiti's AirVision software was based on that, and people were known to run 8-core xeons to manage 10-20 cameras. They rolled their own solution and now you can handle 10x as many cameras with the same hardware.
That's what the TrendNet I bought many years ago does.
Nowadays cams don't do that anymore. They've moved on to H.264 streams.
zoneminder fucking SUCKS.
just get a $200 H.264 DVR + cameras kit.
The "researchers" you mention are able to get into the cesspools of the internet as easily as this company does.
Sure, let the enemy get weapons. Ours are better anyway.
Translation: CIA and NSA are pressuring us for exclusivity.
Seriously, who would believe a sleazy company that makes money off exploits is worried about "human rights violations".
your personal, established Facebook account and not some throwaway.
You're not trying to imply that people should violate an EULA or TOS, right? Because Facebook's TOS explicitly state that every account MUST represent a single person, and a single person SHALL NOT HAVE MORE THAN ONE ACCOUNT.
Soon the FBI will be arriving at your location to determine wether you're in a violation of TOS, a crime worse than murder, rape, genocide or treason.
yeah my dad had an old car mercury switch. it was mounted in the hood to turn on the hood light (sweeeeet) and it contained quite a lot of mercury, probably around 2mL of it (think the size of your average 6-face die to get the idea).
in Argentina it's simply forbidden to buy chemicals of, basically, any sort.
You can barely find HCl "cement cleaner" at hardware stores anymore. And if you do, it's laced with I don't know what other acid that makes it unusable for meth manufacturing.
Lab-grade acids are completely out of the question. Even real labs have difficulty to get the right "permissions". So guess what: government-owned labs suddenly started consuming a lot more chemicals than before, since private labs now (illegally, of course) buy from them to get the needed chemicals.
Even having a chemicals license is dangerous: now a narc can come and make you an offer you can't refuse, and force you to buy chemicals for them.
All of this started a few years ago with the "triple crime" where 3 guys were found murdered. They were owners of pharmacies. They thought it was a good idea to sell efedrin to the narcs... until they wanted out. You don't get out of the mafia.
Of course, no one bothered to check why a certain high-profile reputable chemicals supplier was importing 40 tons a year of efedrin, when the number used to be less than 1 ton a year. Did everyone suddenly started getting the flu?
You don't get it.
I'm not charging an extra 3% for CC payment. That 3% is already taken into account when I mark up my prices.
They aren't mistakes AND they're so small, most people don't bother. Bill an extra "wrong" $5 every month to 10 million customers, though, and what do you get? A few thousand people calling about that charge, and getting it as credit in their next bill, and the rest of the millions just paying it without noticing.
Man, envy is such a horrible thing.
You must be ANGRY at Bill Gates. I mean the amount of money he has, and you, here, a fucking lowlife, whining about a woman that managed to beat the kind of company that screws you every day of the year, and you just whine but do nothing about.
