Another idiot who thinks that we'd all do much better if only we could do our jobs less efficiently.
All my disks are encrypted by the cryptolocker virus. That way I can get them unencrypted for the low low price of 2 bitcoins without having to remember any passwords
Given that it's possible to build your own gps received from scratch anyway this seems little unnecessary. (See http://www.holmea.demon.co.uk/GPS/Main.htm for someone who did) Ok so it's not trivial but it's certainly possible.
I couldn't agree more. Although the word "codes" is usually a red flag not to bother reading any more in any article or question
I think there is a demand for a device that has an operating system made by a company not based in the US. After the recent stuff, how many people trust apple, or google, or microsoft not to have inserted under pressure something to spy on us to the us government. If my own government wishes to monitor me, and if it has good reason to do so, then ok. But I don't see why a foreign government should have that ability too.
Well yeah it's worth being aware of the possibility. But frankly there are very much bigger risks to worry about first

Presumable as they have raised so much money they actually have some kind of plan. Presumably they have a detailed breakdown of what it is then intend to work on and the efforts and costs involved in each item. Presumably they have a plan for what they plan to release and when. Presumably then know what costs they will have and what the plan to spend the money on. So sent it to paypal and sort it out. How hard can that be? And frankly if they don;t have some kind of plan, they don't have any business collecting all that money anyway Do you really imagine that any bank will provide credit card processing facilities for example, without some reassurance you're not committing fraud and that you will deliver what you are collecting payments for?
Can it qualify for a boat loan?
"send lines of attack code to a DNS server," really?
So I wonder which manufacturer that doesn't use Chinese components they'll use instead?
I'd love to use bitcoin more but I'm having a hard time getting any. Where is there that still sells them easily in the UK? Most of the places seem to have closed..
