Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Here you go: "You're fired".
You can't use that phrase in the US without express permission from Donald Trump. I believe the recommended word is "terminate".
30 if people are down trodden enough pass bill; break, else throw out bill
*gasp* There's no "throw" either... No wonder we are stuck in an infinite loop!
You comment about "water marking" has shown that you KNOW people will pay nothing if the can, and you want to have a method to force them to pay.
Some people may pay nothing if they can. I recall Radiohead's album In Rainbows was released under a "pay what you want" program. In this case, "what you want" includes free. According to the band, most people paid normal retail price for it.
This is one area where automatic grading will cause massive skill decrease, as no auto-grader can actually assess contents.
My thoughts exactly.
Auto graders could check spelling and grammar, and to some extent plagiarism, but without a human reviewing the content, students will learn be gaming the algorithms from day 1.
Microsoft has conducted physical seizures
Since when can a CORPORATION perform seizures of private property???
Instead of bricking, lock the user interface, put them in a periodic beaconing mode, and send the posse after the phone.

Wait, what? Facebook interceding to protect the privacy of its users?
Of course! If you want access to their user's data, you have to buy advertising, like everybody else.
“We’ve got the wrong model here. I think we’ve got this model for cyber that says, ‘We’re going to develop a system where we’re not attacked.’ I think we have to go to a model where we assume that the adversary is in our networks. It’s on our machines, and we’ve got to operate anyway. We have to protect the data anyway."
Its nice to see the DoD finally catching up with basic best software practices.
This surely means that this study probably consisted of data mining, and that's about it. That's enough to establish correlation, but correlation != causation.
But the motivation determines if it is a crime in the first place.
Kill someone with malice, got to prison, kill someone in self defense, no prob.
I don't think this article was talking about homicide.
What motivation would make it legal to hack a government or corporate system and stealing personal data?
They're separating out based on motivation.
I saw that... and that IS playing with words. In this case, a criminal is a criminal regardless of motivation.
