Thanks Chevy for allowing well to do men with small penises to display to the general public their malady and chosen method of compensation! Should be a really great seller for you.
Am I the only one that did a double uber face palm after reading this? HOW FUCKING STUPID HAS THE GENERAL PUBLIC BECOME? A license to hunt US Government property? What a bunch of mouth breathing window licking morons we have degenerated into if people are actually showing up for one. I would love to see this from their perspective but I can't seem to get my head up my ass. Reality check Mike here, no government entity is going to hand out licenses to hunt and destroy "GOVERNMENT PROPERTY" you morons. Seriously I expected more from people in that part of the nation. Isn't this the kind of shit you read about in the south for fucks sake? So much stupid I have a problem wrapping my head around it. Perhaps I should go and huff paint fumes for an hour or two and come back to it for another go.
If they say they pay $500.00 for a bug and then refuse to acknowledge and pay you for a righteous bug you would just walk away? I think not. Fuck Facebook. They got what they deserve and if they refused to pay me and also locked my account to boot I would make security exploits of their system a side job and put each one in the wild without reporting it to them so as to cause as much damage and trouble to them. I don't have a facebook account. Never have and never will since I think the whole FB thing is for assholes. That and if they are giving you something for free than it isn't free and you are the product. Boycott facebook!
And why in the hell should you have to go and pay AGAIN for a show you are already supposedly paying for access to legally? These pissing contest between content providers and content distributors happens from time to time and really is a good thing. It shows John Q Public just how in the pockets of these companies they are and gets them thinking of ways to get out. We don't pirate programs, let alone watch most of the crap on TV at this time. It is a combo of not enough time and shit content. We have internet only, no cable channels at all, and get limited TV off air using a silicondust HD homerun box. Works great and the HD programs are recorded in HD! We have Netflix for movies and TV programs and Pandora for a good smattering of music. We pay for these services to support them since they follow what we consider a good model for the future of content distribution. Can I record Netflix or Pandora? No, but then I don't really need to with Netflix. As time moves on more and more are going to be willing to wait for distributors like Netflix to bring programs to them and glorious commercial free goodness. we sure are and allot of our friends are coming around to our way of watching.
"Oh and all those new hacks they found? Gag orders for all of them, just so no one goes and uses said exploit." You make the mistake of thinking that they are going to be making the same mistake that Flavio Garcia made... You are of course wrong. If I were to hack any part of a car I would simply flood multiple forums with it from anonymous accounts accessed from the local public library. Good luck with your search for the "Bad Guy" dick heads. It is rather funny how our present governments and corporations are so fixed on assuring that we have virtually no private information and yet expect that they have the absolute right to it them selves when it suits them. Which is all the time. It is a two way street as they are finding out on a daily basis and allot of the time it doesn't work out to well for them. As to the "good faith" argument, come on, really? Show me one company that really acts in good faith for the sheer "Good" of it and I will show you bullshit.
I suspect that the hack is rather simple and you can be very secure in the knowledge that there are now like a dozen plus persons looking very hard at their key controls with an eye at releasing the hack to simply screw VW for the snub. Fallout be damned. On the other side of it you can not tell me that VW didn't know that they had a security issue and simply waited to fix it because it might cost a few dollars or euros or what ever. Screw the customer for the buck.
"...attorney Jonathon Lee for both telecoms threatened the 'Scripps Hackers' with violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA)." Good fucking luck with the subterfuge assholes. You shit the bed and now you are trying to say it was the guy from the next town over. So typical of companies now days. I agree that the more anonymous you can stay the better. We seldom if ever give our info to anyone unless it can't be helped. Most of the time it can be and so we don't. I worry more about these shit bag companies having my info more than I do nefarious characters now days.
Hard to argue. My GF works IT and it is a crap job that is thankless, stressful, and has a performance target that is always moving up unlike her pay. My being in the trades it is hard to argue with Bloomberg. I have never wanted for work. I can literally make one phone call and have a good paying job in just about any medium to large city. The down side is that I deal with weather and messy work conditions at times. The plus is that I can look at my self in the mirror and know that I contribute to my community in a positive and worthwhile way. Unlike say a lawyer...
The solution is very simple, turn off the internet in all of Belgian and wait for repeal. This is a tax on all people and companies and people even though less than 1% are actually doing any sort of illegal downloading. This is unfair to all. Lynch the bastards.
Do ya think that if they weren't doing shitty stuff to us with our info that may just be illegal in the light of day that they would not be fighting so hard to keep a lid on it? Cynical me says that this bill will die a slow death and not be heard from again. In other news, Assemblywoman Bonnie Lowenthal, D-Long Beach has a well funded super PAC supporting her re-election bid after the quite defeat of her bill in the state assembly.
But here it is, they are a business and it is centered around selling metrics and adds. This has been going on for some time now, like just about as long as the internet has been available to the wide public. The way I see it is this. The incumbent providers now are in a race to not only role modern service for the last mile but to provide something that at least approaches the speeds that Google is going to offer. The customer has been at the mercy of the one, or if you are lucky two, provider/s and the shitty packaging they grace us with. Google knows that to get us on their service they have a guaranteed long term revenue stream based not only on the monthly service fees but the secondary and tertiary streams of advertising and user data mining. I suspect that this is going to be very lucrative indeed. The cable, satellite, and phone companies have been playing with kid gloves between each other to maintain the very high profits they all enjoy. With Google coming in the gloves are likely to come off. Problem is that the incumbents are fat a lethargic, short sighted group with myopic vision. the future is looking bright if you ask me and I will be happy to see them have to actually care about the customer or loose them for good
Facebook can suck shit through a dead rats ass! I have none to negative interest in them, their crappy service, or a data mining software package that runs on my phone 24/7. Zucker can suck my pucker!
..."because 3D-printed guns aren't yet as durable as their metal counterparts, the ATF doesn't yet consider them as much of a concern." That and it would cost far more to print the gun part using the kind of printer technology that would render a reliable weapon, far more than the cost of the gun one would be looking to replicate. The kind of 3D printers that are required to make the kind of weapons that the ATF would take notice of are very expensive and generally not available to the general public or if they are no business would print the parts for fear of being sued to the poor house. I personally worry far more for our safety at the thought of not being able to have a weapon/s in my home. Criminals are just waiting for that day...They will be bringing a gun to a knife fight and know they have the upper hand. Good times for Jane and Joe citizen when that day comes.
My thought exactly. You know I was thinking of getting one of the GoPro cameras in the next couple of months, not any more. Given the option of Sony or GoPro anyone will win out first... Congrats GoPro, you have just been lumped in with Sony on my super shit list for scum bag companies. If I were DigitalRev I would simply re-post the review again. There needs to be legal and financial ramifications for misuse of a DCMA take down like this. This is a total pile of steaming pile of BS. GoPro=Scumbag.
While I agree that the content providers are out of control and that the congress is in fact just their legal arm there is still the problem that content has a cost to produce. If everyone didn't pay for it and everyone stole it then the content would dry up. I personally try my best to not purchase music and content from other than the artist. If we stop buying from the big scumbag content providers the small guys will likely flourish. I also try and buy used disks, in this way I am legal and at the same time I stick it to the man! Mike
