the video even explains that the first time these guys did this to his car (years ago) they did need physical access - they were in the car with him while they did the hack. They use that point to explicitly note that this time they were miles away.
Obviously the former is much easier to close, but since the 'fix' is a USB delivered patch me thinks they are directly connecting to the vehicle.
It's a perfect example of why encryption back doors are a fools errand. I'm sure it would be nice to stop a criminal who stole your car by turning off the engine...but that opens up the ability to remotely turn off the engine that could be used by anyone gaining the appropriate access. You can't make remote connections 'secure', only levels of security that come with risks.
Solar is great except at night. How does Australia power itself when the sun goes down?
Nuclear isn't clean by any stretch, but it is 'clean air' which is what we probably need most right now. I'd love to see full renewable but a more reasonable plan would be nuclear in the short (30-50) year term while renewable/storage becomes grid capable.
Are you seriously suggesting that a government that is increasing it's military, economy, and territorial aspirations is something to not fear?
Indeed. this is why the rest of the world is pulling back from the US. Or did you mean China...
How do you think that made Cisco customers feel?
All of these systems are going to be using some sort of energy storage and quick delivery...that's entirely different than the production of the energy. Capacitors or supersized batteries are likely what will actually be used to supply the energy to the catapult.
It should be fiction, but that's the current procedure apparently.
Where do I send the bill for all the backup tapes I'll need to buy to meet this requirement?
Actually they send you the bill. It's usually referred to as 'Taxes'
It's why your past writings aren't excluded as 'self-incrimination'. You did them willingly so are viable evidence; the gov't didn't make you create them.
