Innocent until proven guilty is one of the great achievements for human justice. This isn't about the standards for administering a punishment; this is about the standards for administering a reward. Not only a reward, a reward that could help or harm every one of us. Sorry, innocent until proven guilty just doesn't cut it for me for voting. The Clintons have a strong reputation of not being proven guilty.
I am on the EFF's side here, but isn't it the game industry's job? If the game industry wants to be taken seriously artistically, it is ultimately the industry's duty to set up ways to preserve the art. If the industry won't take itself seriously, then individuals attempting preservation are going to end up being blocked over and over again by whatever form our trademark and copyright laws take.
I know a bunch of people whose blood pressure skyrockets whenever climate change is mentioned...
Do I care if my valuables that can only be accessed virtually are protected by virtual security? Yes. Do I care that my valuables that can only be accessed physically have a virtual security flaw that is not any bigger than the security flaws with my existing traditional physical security? Not one bit.
Manufacturers should be investing in security, but me avoiding IoT devices that I find useful over security issues is pretty pointless.
My regular locks can be bypassed by any idiot with a brick. If you've got enough intelligence to bypass a connected lock, then you've got enough intelligence to get into my house past my normal locks and probably just as quietly.
Thank you. I'm now glad I never finished my hole through to the other side of the earth. My parents would have been loads of pissed when the Indian ocean drained out into our yard.
I see your children have played neither Skylanders nor Disney Infinity.
I work with some of those former military types. From some of my talks with them: It is also important to note that active duty military are required to follow lawful orders, not all orders. It is the duty of any military member to immediately detain someone issuing an unlawful order regardless of rank. Not having served myself, I don't know how this matches the military regulations, but that isa seemingly widely held understanding of their obligation. It seems a bit naive to consider the military as a cohesive pro-government force if an issue is big enough for a significant number of civilian gun-owners revolt.
Lawyers don't commit theft; if for no other reason than lawyers write all the laws, interpret all the laws, and for the most part hold all the highest level law executive positions.
STL was a dirty word in the CS program I attended. It wasn't introduced until the very last day and it was essentially: Here are some standard classes to use or not. My first job I was the lone developer and I rolled a lot of stuff on my own. I feel bad for whoever has to maintain that code now because instead of using well-used, presumably well-tested STL classes there are a bunch of one off classes that are used in one package written by one very young developer with no tester. I may lose something for leaning on the STL stuff but I've gained a whole bunch of testers as well. That last part usually goes a lot further than anything I'd get from rolling my own.
I'm sure they'd be even better at their jobs if the citizens would just let them in on a live feed of said CCTV cameras. This is of course just a stop-gap measure until everyone can be fitted with crime-detecting locator chips.
I was wondering what got you on double secret probation. I was on secret probation once. I didn't find out until suspension that I was ever on probation.
It does. Whether it can or not hasn't deterred our elected officials yet. But Don't worry: They aren't deterred by whether or not the laws they pass are within their power under US law either.
"So maybe Key West would be a better alternative." And the entire research team gives a collective: "Shhhhh"
