Who else do you think pays the full cost of all that stuff?
In no way am I saying rape isn't bad. If rape leads to death, then it is worse than murder. Although, it depends on the method of murder. Burning alive would be much worse.
So death by fire: what? 10 minutes? probably much less, due to suffocation; Death by rape: probably hours or days of pure torture.
Yeah prove how excellent our society is by killing everyone who does something we don't like. Put them in prison by all means but killing them just proves that you are no better than them.
I am undecided on the death sentence, but I think theres a huge difference between "something we don't like" and rape. Noone should be killed for stealing a Mars bar, but for rape or murder
(preferred because somebody who really really tried could probably resurrect the old data through a mere zeroing, but it would be a lot harder if overwritten with random bytes, and way harder if you executed this command five or six times in a row).
I have NEVER seen that done or even heard of it. Could you link me to a source, where it is shown, that a zeroed drive could be used to get anything meaningful back? The "overwrite 7 times to be sure" is a myth as far as I know.
Exactly. Biometrics are not secrets. They uniquely identify an individual, but you still need a secret for security.
And even that is not true, if they are easily copied. The parent is obviously right
You can only go to your church, synagoge, mosque or whatever the sacred place is called in your religion to celebrate your marriage if you can show the official document sealing your marriage.
At least in Germany you can freely do any marriage rite you want without any paperwork. It just doesn't count anything (tax benefits,
Why not? This is easily answered.
Secure Boot does not mean "secure for you". It means secure for Microsoft.
The advertised "feature" of anti-virus, anti-malware is a strawman. I don't get why any hardware manufacturer would be so unbelievably greedy and implement this just to get a stupid "Works with Windows 8" sticker, but obviously I am just too stupid to get it, because it will probably happen.
I really, really hope something will happen, that prevents the whole secure boot thing with MS certificates. I don't know. Maybe the European High Court (or whatever its called) does something about "secure boot"
There would be a really easy way of implementing secure boot without any certificates from a special vendor. Just securely hash the boot sector at first boot. If the has changes, ask the user to verify the change or rebuild the old boot sector. This way you cannot change the boot sector without the user knowing it. Easy as this and as secure as the so called "secure boot". And as a bonus you still can run any software YOU want.
