I definitely agree that it should take more than a simple demand from police before you have to provide a password, or any other form of authentication, for access to your data. Glad I don't live in VA. My only point was that the root of the inconsistency here between biometrics and passwords can be traced to the idea that passwords have fifth amendment protection. There are definitely many issues with requiring passwords in any circumstances, including claims to have forgotten them and around steganography. Passwords have the advantage that, even if you can be legally required to give them up, there's no way to force you do so. The most they might legally do (one would hope) is have you rot in gaol indefinitely.
The anomaly here is due to the idea that fifth amendment protections should apply to passwords. Passwords can't be incriminating*; they only provide access to existing material that might be incriminating. There have been decisions both ways on this but my money is that eventually SCOTUS will rule that passwords are not protected.
* One potential loophole might be where someone claims their password itself is incriminating. I think the best solution here would be to allow "use immunity" for passwords and remove the rule about derived evidence for this situation.
LACP is a layer 2 solution, i.e., it works at the ethernet level. The requirement here is for a layer 3 solution that works on the Internet. My guess is that there's nothing off the shelf so he'll have to start coding.
The saddest part about this is that soon, probably, we'll live in a world where there's no living memory of what it's like to walk on another world. Armstrong and his successors are no longer young and none of the projects to return to the moon or to go to Mars look likely to happen quickly enough. Who in 1972 would have thought that they were watching the end or an era instead of the beginning? I don't think anyone's made it past 1000 miles up since then.
This system is going to see plenty of things that aren't "in public", even without peeping in windows. What is your expectation of privacy in your backyard? Could there be a constitutional up-side in the US though? Maybe everyone will be able to have their cases thrown out due to the warrantless surveillance conducted on them prior to their arrest.
Do we know this is the result of a DMCA request? Doesn't Youtube give studios like Sony an interface to take down what they want? So then it's back to being as annoying as hell but not legally actionable in any way
This was trailed years ago in Melbourne Australia. As you approach the lights signs advise driving 60, 50, 40, etc. as appropriate but sometimes, show no speed. Drivers quickly learn that this means they need to speed to catch the lights
I find the iOS mail and calendar apps work well enough with Exchange. Apple may have resisted having Outlook present as a competitor to these core apps.
If it's the police initiating this then they must feel it's a criminal matter and so extradition becomes a possibility, and Finland is part of the EU. If they want to play hard ball then Jimmy might have to cut down on visits to Europe because, once he's there, it will be European courts who get to decide who has jurisdiction.
It's clear to me that plasmas give better quality image but I still choose LCD. The plasma issue of burn-in is the main worry but they're also more power hungry and heavy too. Plasmas easily beat LCDs for black levels, colour accuracy, response time and viewing angles but LCDs are good enough. Even if my kids didn't spend hours playing video games I know somehow there would be burn-in and then I'd want to buy a new set
The fundamental engineering problem here is that cars float and submarines sink. Ballasting that car with enough weight so it's close to neutrally buoyant will ensure it performs nothing like a sports car on the road. This is the kind of issue that made lead acid batteries such a great choice for submarines in the first place.
The best approach is going to involve minimising the volume where water is excluded, i.e., ensuring that as much of the vehicle is flooded by water as possible when it dives. At least, as a sports car, the interior is very small so they may have a chance of making it work.
Just because a file is shared with Dropbox doesn't mean that accesses involve a network round-trip to their servers. The files are still stored locally (on an SSD if you have one) and only synchronised when a change is made on another machine. Dropbox is not the same as a Windows "network drive" over SMB/CIFS or Linux NFS.
