It's all fun and games untill the flawed technology that blacklists those server IP-addresses is used to flag as pirates people trying to access those addresses, and it's accepted as "evidence" in court.
It would be trivial for developed countries to write laws that prevent the import or manufacture of products made from raw materials that came from "dirty" factories. But that's crazy talk. Because bribes err... I mean free market, efficiency, lower prices for "consumers", the invisible hand will fix this.
As if it's ever going to happen. One engineer made a "maybe" comment, slashdot goes bonkers.
The future is on whitelisting, which assumes the removal of anoynymity for websites and advertisers, and certificates for executables. Freedom fighters will whine and moan, but that's what will happen.
"Reliable ad agency? Yeah, I gotta agree, that's kinda funny." If you can just sit back and be a middleman collecting his sweet cut (while pretending to care about user's security), why bother caring about who your advertisers are and expend effort to make sure they are non anonymous? After all, you have the disclaimer. Thank (insert name of deity here), users have adblock.
"Host your own ads" is something only big sites can implement obviously. An ad agency is reliable if all the advertisers are non-anonymous, and hence responsible for the content they push through the ad agency. And don't tell me "it's not possible", there is this thing called HTTPS. Instead, as of now, anyone with a computer and internet connection can be an "advertizer". No eponymity or responsibilities, yay! This was good enough for the first years of the internet. "Freedom", easy, cheap blah blah, now it's not good enough, because there is lots of money to be made for malvertizing, and ad agencies can't keep up with preventing and blacklisting anonymous mal-ads. Unreliable ad agencies that don't care about my security will simply get Ad Blocked and lose my ad impressions (I don't care). Mutual non-caring.
Ahh... The joys of having anonymous advertisers, even on well-known sites: Not only some of the ads are of questionable legality, but some of them may actually hurt you. THIS is why AdBlock Edge is a security policy, not an adblocking policy. Don't give me the "freeloader" talk. Either host your own ads and be responsible for them, or partner with reliable ad agencies (and maybe I will unblock them).
And you can get it from the oldversion site.
It's called lock-in (Play Apps, Games, Movies, Music and Hangouts messages). Being on the other side is a bitch, right Microsoft?
The truth is that when digital data are modulated with some "dense" QAM scheme, then the amount of noise the cable introduces IS important. The 1s and 0s will get distorted if noise is too high. BUT, the other truth is that, all you have to do is buy a cable that is compliant conductivity-wise. All those fancy Monster cables are an ordinary cable, just upmakerd. And you should NEVER exceed the distances recommended by the standard. You should not build a 100m link even if it's consisted of monster cables. Better save the money for repeaters.
I can tell you the government is not going to give "unlimited" electricity for free. There is going to be some Kwh limit defined as "more than enough to power a household". Because, otherwise everyone will allow the neighbouring MiniMarket to connect their fridges to the appartment's outlets, for a small amount of money paid to the appartment owner. Also, the new PM also promised free food (aka food stamps) for the poor people, but this doesn't mean they will be able to park a truck outside and start loading as much food they want.
Microsoft tried to implement a system where sites and advertisers are NOT anonymous and hence responsible for their content, as a subset of the web, the world went crazy and MS abandoned the idea. IMO users should be anonymous, but sites and advertisers should not be. Also, the site doesn't mention you should have 126.96.36.1996 to be safe, the linked article does.
What it means "investigating"? An exploit kit exist, they can download it and see how it works and have people working on it round the clock. The fact there is no commitment on when the bug is going to be fixed is absurd.
My password is 'incorrect". So if I ever forget it, the computer will helpfully remind me that "password is incorrect"
