WOW I wish more people thought like you. I volunteer and manage a network and wireless setup for a high-school in my area, the bandwidth is provided free of charge by AT&T, I know it surprised me as well. Kids can and DO break things in ways I never even conceived of before taking on this responsibility. I work as an admin for a very LARGE business and do this professionally and I've never seen the cluster-fsck that 2 dozen high school kids can make of a network in 10 minutes without even really trying.
Hardware and software companies need to get these kids to be beta testers.

Comment: who will regulate (Score 1) 273

and ensure the cars are safe, registered, and are not ripping people off ? "Haven't we been around the park already driver....?" While I agree cabby licenses DO restrict who can run a cab or taxi, without some regulation you will soon be riding in a car you'd see on the road in India. I've been a cop and inspected cabs for the county. The owners and drivers of cabs would do without insurance, seatbelts, windows, doors, tread on tires, ANYTHING to make a buck.

Individuals who are on call need to make sure they go places they are open to cell phones, much the same way they need to remain within a certain distance of their work. Why should the rest of the world suffer for these few special needs individuals ??
My house is an AT&T black-hole anyways. I had to switch carriers after many complaints because I couldn't receive call in the back of my house. Verizon has NO SUCH problem in this area apparently.

+ - SPAM: Protect, Unprotect, Modify Protection of Word Documents in Cloud Using PHP

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Microsoft Word password protection is a security feature used to protect documents with a user provided password. Most people use Microsoft Word but sometimes you don't want everyone to be able to read or modify your documents. There are two options for securing your Word files : either set a password to open the document, or set a password to stop anyone from modifying the document. When a document is protected, the user can make only limited changes, such as adding annotations, making revisions, or completing a form. Even if a document is protected with a password, Aspose.Words does not require the password to open, modify or remove protection from the document. When you use Aspose.Words to protect a document, you have the option of keeping the existing password or specifying a new password. If you need to make sure the document is really protected from changes, consider digitally signing the document. Aspose.Words supports detecting digital signatures for DOC, OOXML and ODT documents.

+ - Shadow Network 100 Times Faster than Google Fiber Already Exists

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "When the Department of Defense's ARPAnet evolved into the present-day internet, the scientific community didn't actually stop experimenting with networks. Even as the commercial internet grew, scientists were building other nets connected first via land lines, then satellite links, and now via fiber optic cables. Various shadow networks in the U.S. were eventually combined into ESnet (Energy Science Network) that was able in November 2013 to transfer data in 'real world' settings at 91 gigabits per second. ('Real world' settings refer to non-direct connections.) Google Fiber is currently aiming to provide data transfer speeds of 10 gigabits per second to American consumers, much higher than all other U.S. internet providers. ESnet utilizes 'the excess network capacity built-up by commercial internet providers during the late 1990s internet bubble' — i.e., 'dark fiber'. Its data transfer capabilities foreshadow the future for average consumers, but some today may see the disparity between this shadow net and the commercial one and wonder just why exactly such a large disparity exists."

+ - 4K Monitors: Not Now, But Soon->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "4K monitor prices have fallen down into the range where mainstream consumers are starting to consider them for work and for play. There are enough models that we can compare and contrast, and figure out which are the best of the ones available. But this report at The Wirecutter makes the case that absent a pressing need for 8.29 million pixels, you should wait before buying one. They say, "he current version of the HDMI specification (1.4a) can only output a 4096×2160 resolution at a refresh rate of 24 Hz or 3840×2160 at 30 Hz—the latter, half that of what we’re used to on TVs and monitors. Connect up a 4K monitor at 30 Hz via HDMI and you’ll see choppier animations and transitions in your OS. You might also encounter some visible motion stuttering during normal use, and you’ll be locked to a maximum of 30 frames per second for your games—it’s playable, but not that smooth. ... Most people don’t own a system that’s good enough for gaming on a 4K display—at least, not at highest-quality settings. You’ll be better off if you just plan to surf the Web in 4K: Nvidia cards starting in the 600 series and AMD Radeon HD 6000 and 7000-series GPUs can handle 4K, as can systems built with integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics or AMD Trinity APUs. ... There’s a light on the horizon. OS support will strengthen, connection types will be able to handle 4K displays sans digital tricks, and prices will drop as more 4K displays hit the market. By then, there will even be more digital content to play on a 4K display (if gaming or multitasking isn’t your thing), and 4K monitors will even start to pull in fancier display technology like Nvidia’s G-Sync for even smoother digital shootouts.""

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "For all of its surveillance and number-crunching powers, the NSA has had little success in dealing with its Snowden problem. It still seems the agency has no idea what Snowden took, with guesses varying wildly over the past several months. Some reports (not the NSA's) have put that number as low as 60,000. The NSA continues to claim the number is over one million, even with its most recent guess revising its first estimates downward."
