I wonder how much worse traffic congestion will be as people find it cheaper to let their cars drive around all day than pay for parking? Or park anywhere it is free to do so.
Perhaps the associated press should play a part in foia requests by making requests on behalf of member news outlets. Just set aside a fund for paying for the requests.
The problem isn't the software, but how people are using it. Banning Power Point won't fix bad end users. They will just find a different way to give crappy presentations.
Perhaps a better approach is bundle or create software that helps people create presentations from the script on up, and perhaps the software should have one presentation the audience sees and one the presenter sees full of more info or a complete script.
The big misconception people have about young people and technology is the idea that kids know how technology works or how to use it.They just assume stuff will work and when it doesn't they don't know what to do.
They need to learn the basics:
Drives (C, D, E...)
Folders and the most basic of folder structures
How to navigate to different drives/folders/etc.
some basic troubleshooting skills
I would say critical thinking skills and a genuine sense of curiosity are the things they need most.
Not only are many who are looking for a job already employed, but job sites are a treasure trove of personal information. People post resumes with nearly everything but their ssn. They also give out phone numbers and email address of people they know.
And if you know people are looking for a job, what kinds of jobs, and can then build targeted phishing that looks like a job offer/application, get the person to give you their SSN and information, then sell it or use it.
It is also the customers that want dvds/blu-rays. For some (possibly many) it is actually MORE convenient to put a disc in the player than it is to hook up computer to the TV or set up the blu-ray player to connect to the internet. Also not everyone has a fast enough connection to stream video on par with a blu-ray disc or may have bandwidth limits that make streaming not as viable an option.
Plus there are probably dozens of trivial non-tech reasons why people like getting a disc. For example, they may like getting a physical thing they ordered in the mail or like the extra features and trailers that come on the DVD but are not streamed.
IT seems the few people making money from FOSS have done so by using the software both as a tool to provide a service and as a form of advertising.
"While this flaw itself does not allow an attacker to compromise a vulnerable device, it is still a very serious threat to the privacy of users as it can be exploited through Man-in-the-Middle attacks" VUPEN's Chaouki Bekrar told SecurityWeek. For example, when connecting to an untrusted WiFi network, attackers could spy on user connections to websites and services that are supposed to be using encrypted communications, Bekrar said. Users should update their iOS devices to iOS 7.0.6 as soon as possible.

“Secure Transport failed to validate the authenticity of the connection. This issue was addressed by restoring missing validation steps,” the Apple advisory says.
The wording of the description is interesting, as it suggests that the proper certificate-validation checks were in place at some point in iOS but were later removed somehow. The effect of an exploit against this vulnerability would be for an attacker with a man-in-the-middle position on the victim’s network would be able to read supposedly secure communications. It’s not clear when the vulnerability was introduced, but the CVE entry for the bug was reserved on Jan. 8.
But over the last few years, neurogenesis, the generation of new brain cells in your lifetime, has been observed in the hippocampi of the adult human brain. It turns out 700 new neurons are added in each hippocampus per day.
What’s more, the same Swedish team of researchers that observed the new neurons in the hippocampi found yet another cache of new brain cells, in part of the forebrain called the striatum.

A Federal Court decision released Thursday compels Ontario-based TekSavvy to identify the customers allegedly linked to downloads of films by the U.S. production company Voltage Pictures, which is behind the likes of The Hurt Locker, Dallas Buyers Club and Don Jon.
Note: Please hold the George W. Bush jokes until after the break.
While this is an interesting look into way people communicate online, for some reason I see this research being used by advertisers before being put to more civic minded uses.
Well it seems like in 14.04 global menus are the default, and the local menus are an option in the “Appearance” section of the Unity Control Center. That seems like a fair compromise.
If I'm not mistaken, and I could be, I believe they were comparing it to the mass of a proton within the carbon nucleus they were using in the experiment.
