The problem is not the passwords they use. Its that all these POS system ARE RUNNING WINDOWS! An OS that has been proven time and again to have ZERO security.
All these "hacks" are nothing more than fancy Wall Street rich pukes trying to scare our elected leaders into giving them billions and billions of tax dollars.
ALL of them are about keeping the 99% mad at each other (left right crap) so we don't gang up on the real bad guys RICH PEOPLE!
Comcast admitted to congress (The House hearings about the Comcast Time Warner Merger) that what they pay for data has gone down over 99% in the last 10 years.
There are lot of unanswered questions about 9/11 just don't ask any of them or get labeled crazy. Just like all of us that said for years we live in a police state where everything we do gets spied on we got called tin foil hat nut jobs for over a decade
... Thanks to the HERO Edward Snowden I have heard a whole lot of "I'm Sorry" lately.
Now not all theories are based in truth and we get almost all of not based in any facts type theorizes from CNN,FOX,MSNBC,CNBC. etc etc. Like this el toro poo poo about global warming calling it climate change ...NO DUH! Look if 99% of the smartest people on earth say burning carbon is warming the planet WE NEED TO LISTEN!!! But these content cartel slime balls will make up anything to justify everything our REAL enemy has done/is doing to us. The real enemy is RICH PEOPLE not people that disagree with you about petty politics.
I can see the gooberment getting all worked up (yet again) because they disagree with a group protesting something and to control the flow of info they can just use their fancy new kill switch.
Its really all about America's one true God capitalism. Any other system is hunted down and destroyed or made to look like boogeymen thanks to our all too willing media (content cartels). Congress didn't spend all that money on spying without a return. I bet at least one of these 'contractors' is porting a lot of data to high freg trading computers. Heck we already know that the super rich get consumer data 15 min's before us little folks. Just look how rich congress people get while in office and just after. All the data mining is for one thing and it ain't security ITS MONEY! Want to know why no one does anything about pay TV rates? Easy almost everyone that can do anything about it have stock in the pay TV co's! To cut this rant short as long as Americans worship money over all else nothing will ever change.
He is almost at the top of my hero list. 1) All American Hero PFC Bradley Manning 2) Edward Snowden 3) Annomyous 4) Trust Busting Teddy R. 5) The EFF. Peace is a family value - The NSA spying on us is NOT!
"Linux is ghetto" Dude thats el toro poo poo! You won't find Tux in da hood but you will see lots of BROKEN WINDOWS. ld
Isn't our browsing history unique content? Its just as creative as a rap song. I think our history should be protected under the DMCA just like music and if the rich (and law enforcement) want to collect it then they should have to ask permission and pay us a cut of the profit. My 4 cents.
This war on geeks has gotta stop. Don't they have any idea how stupid it is to PISS OFF ALL THE SMART FOLKS! ld
The RIAA has been pulling that one for years
The RIAA was not the first to use these tactics. It was DirecTV
I and us older folks messed up. I am very sorry you may never know what freedom really is. ld
If Intellectual Property is real property then why are there no property taxes on it? How does Comcast get away with selling TV thats already paid for with commercials? When did the bill of rights become a technicality? Why is it legal to waterboard someone but using bit torrent to download a Linux distro is a danger to us all? What good are those electronic strip search machines when the drug dealers get their stuff through airports everyday with no problem? Why is it illegal in most states to drive with headphones on but a deaf person has no problem getting a drivers license? I don't really expect a reasonable answer to any of my questions. Because their are not any besides the fact we are all SUCKERS. The rich and powerful know we won't riot we won't vote in mass and we will keep on paying our taxes. So theres no need to ask why is my broadband bill 70 bucks a month while the rest of the world gets much faster service at a fraction of the price
... We are SUCKERS.
Thank goodness I'm an old man and won't have to put up with all this for much longer because the future is nothing to look forward too ... High School Class of 2010 less than 25% passed the SAT (search /. the story was posted here about the class of 2010 so don't accuse me of making it up please) so the next generation is dumb as wood. I do hope I live long enough to see all our technology break down and no one is left that is smart enough to fix it. Its not global warming that should scare us but rather the mass breeding of morons.
