It needs a gps so it can rat on them if they are speeders. People who speed in residential areas need to have Progressive send someone out to punch them in the taint over and over until they understand that only scumbags speed in residential areas.

It's just one of the perks of Progressive.

.... make it stop!

Computers are things. It's always been an "Internet of Things".

"Internet of Things" is as stupid as if we suddenly started saying "highway of cars". It's both true and free of meaning at the same time ... which I suppose is a weird sort of achievement.

And no, calling it HoC wouldn't make "highway of cars" any more hip. Just stupider.

But IF there are effectively infinitely many vulns that can be found for less than the black market value, then fixing one does not decrease the probability that the attacker will find another one.

Right, and IF my grandmother had testicles, she'd be my grandfather.

If there is a way for a finite amount of code to contain an infinite number of bugs, I don't see it. (Netscape Navigator excepted of course ;^))

I was just browsing my own business mail, and I found that 90% of them don't belong in public, because they are talking about customer installations (information which belongs to the customer, not us) or about internal administration and HR (like courses, oncall schedules, sick leaves, vacations). Only 1% are directly about what I am doing, like solution concepts, scripts or possible configurations. I can imagine that this is not so much different from most other people's business email.

It's later than you think, the joint Russian-American space mission has already begun.
