Well, on the basis that malloc() and free() are opposites, and writing to free()d memory is delusional, delusional == free.
On the other hand, look at what America has been fine with imposing on other nations, then what it has been fine living with within itself. America has never been about upholding the standards it claims.
As for freedom, from pretty much the very beginning, Constitutional "rights" have been revealed as merely permissions granted to whoever those in power happened to like. (Hence the amazing numbers of prisoners promising to vote in favour of those in power at the time magically getting dispensation, and the amazing problems minorities with a habit of voting the wrong way have.) There are no "rights" in America, never have been. You can't remove, grant or even waive rights - they exist or they don't and that's the end of it. (On matters of rights, I can be complete Kant.) Permissions are the only things you can ever add or subtract, and since everything in the Constitution has been put on hold or removed at some point, everything in the Constitution is a permission.
But that's fine with Americans, provided it's some other person getting these pseudo-rights pulled, ideally if they're from the wrong political party or the wrong ethnicity, or (in this case) testifying for the wrong side. People want THEIR freedoms and the freedoms of "their side" defended, "the other side" gets whatever crumbs are thrown their way. And that is why Americans are generally elitist snobs of an order pre-WW1 Europe could only ever have dreamed of aspiring to. Even the worst of the empires treated "non-conformists" better than that. Admittedly, in many cases, by shooting them, but that's still treating them as equals of dogs. The US treats undesirables (ie: those who don't think the same) as closer to pond scum.
Judges have never been taken seriously, when decisions run against the government. There have been Supreme Court rulings awarding the Black Hills to the Sioux. The government, for 50? 60? years has managed to ignore the ruling. That covers a lot of Presidents in both parties. But it includes an awful lot more voters, who (by re-electing anyone at all) are active supporters of the Government's refusal to follow SCOTUS orders. You are putting people in power who you know, full well, will not obey judge rulings they do not like. The upshot of that is that I have bugger-all pity when those same politicians disregard (or creatively interpret) rulings that happen to affect you or your "side". You're discovering the price of giving them that power.
The only downside is that everyone in the world, free or otherwise, must pay the price for these games. You have robbed us all of what liberty we had, just so that the right people were oppressed.
All your rights are free, but you're not permitted to have either Rights or Freedoms.
Now, here's a spoon.
We were spying on you since at least the early 80s.
We just never told you.
So the authentication chip provides no value whatsoever to the customer, only negative value for cost-conscious customers who cannot purchase third party 'straight pieces of wire' that indeed should perform the function of a cable perfectly.
Goodness, you're on a roll today with your "facts".
The chip is not used for normal USB communication (because it's simply not necessary), but is part of the Lightning specification for other uses if the device is connected to something other than a USB port.
No, they didm't insist people needed "only Apple's branded cable" - they said that to ensure safety, you should only buy certified chargers and cables, and to emphasise this they initiated a trade in program where they would give you an Apple charger and cable if you sent them a cheap knockoff one.
Don';t let the facts get in the way of a good bash though, eh?
Oh, that's right, you're just "the rest of us" - you're not at all unbiased when it comes to discussions about Apple. My mistake!
Carry on with your gross inaccuracies presented as fact!
You mean like this guy?
I guess he represents "the rest of [you]".
For most of the drone's flight, it would be well out of range of any but the best marksmen, and do the best marksmen really sit in their back yard looking for something flying 400' overhead to shoot at? That's moving at 30-60mph?
It's not that hard. Most qualified army personnel could do that easily.
You may be confusing short range weapons (pistols, SMGs) with long arms (rifles). One uses the latter.
And look forward to getting pizza for free when they send gift pizza through my airspace to the large apartment buildings next door.
This slingshot is the best purchase ever!
The only down side is that you would have an actual phone used for talking to other people with phones, rather than disgruntled avian simulator. Some folks consider that to be a problem.
The Yota will let you display a map, a book, or other useful stuff on its e-ink display.
The Fone apparently couldn't even display SMS messages properly.
Sorry if I missed a joke, but if you're serious, there's no comparison.
If someone made a phone like the Yota in a slider format (or some other way to get a keyboard in there), I could be all over it.
Depends on the state or "district" and the legal structure.
In Washington State, yes, but you can't track GPS or other info without a warrant anyway, so if you don't have one, you're not going to do this.
If a terrorist or near a border there are other exceptions, and a lot of the "dark" networks they say are turned off get turned on when needed.
You must live in a crowded part of the country - here there are only so many exits people can take - fairly easy to not chase people without risk.
So total bullshit. Got it. Cites or go home.
See one of the other responses which did have access to such catalogs.
Get a job.
We are long past the age where women are trained from childhood to take certain jobs, accept certain careers, or forego careers.
No, in fact, we are not. The training and biasing may be more subtle, but it certainly still exists.
You can disagree all you want but my statement is correct. It's also correct in regards to the meaningless noise characteristics you call "race".
The difference between two unique individual humans who are not siblings or parent/child is greater than the difference between the statistical median or mean of women and the statistical median or mean of men.
It doesn't matter if you don't like it, it's a fact.
