How long before there's an "app for that"?

Go find work elsewhere then.
Striking just shows at they can't. Otherwise they already would have.
Of course, now that the NSA and Germany's equivalent can reach deep into your private online data, perhaps they *will* know exactly how much Bitcoin you have, and exactly how much you sold.
Well... Shorter lifespans does equate to faster evolution. So if one starts with the (admittedly questionable) premise that we are evolving into something better adapted to future environments then increasing our lifespan may result in humans which are less adapted to their contemporary environments.
Just sayin'. Live longer, adapt slower.
An "egg corn" it is.
Doesn't dosing on 2000 IU of D per day stave off cancer according to 100's of studies?
Didn't you know?
The Nuremburg trials are the defacto case setting the record *very* clear that humans have a moral obligation to defy the rules when the rules violate natural or moral rights. Privacy has *long* been established as a natural right and is codified in the highest legal document in the nation. Ergo, the responsibility was on Mr. Snowden to come forth with the information.
That the government is appalled, mortified and furious is clear. But what is even more clear is that there was a horrific abuse of power taking place and a voice of moral conscience stepped forward at great personal risk to protect you, me and all of us.
This is a hero. He deserves the protection of the public at large. And those within the government who have neglected their responsibilities, abandoned the cause of freedom and violated our constitutional and natural rights deserve prosecution to the full extent of the law.
What is just as disheartening as the government's efforts to extradite Snowden, is the total lack of silence in terms of desire to prosecute the actual wrongdoers.
Who were they? What were their names? How high did the chain of command go? When will there be a trial? How many dozens of people (or hundreds?) will be serving 20 year sentences? THESE are the questions that need to be answered. Not whether Mr. Snowden has violated the requirements of his day job.
Serious crimes have been committed. Snowden wasn't part of them.
John Corzine stole a billion dollars and walked away without a trial.
The government of Cyprus stole money from people's bank accounts.
HSBC openly laundered money for Mexican drug cartels, and admitted to it. But no charges were pressed, as HSBC is too big to fail.
You could keep giving examples like the ones above for hours on end.
"Crime" is a very selective word these days indeed...
Not strange at all. Marissa Mayer isn't capable of doing much besides making overpriced acquisitions and hires.
Here's (yet another) social blogging platform with no clear revenue model.
I'm no forensic expert, but wouldn't tooth decay continue after death? How are posthumous cavities differentiated from cavities formed during life?
Anyone who has read Nicholas Nassim Taleb's "Black Swan" will immediately see the problem here. Rare events are almost impossible to predict mathematically with a small statistical set.
Without a solid understanding of the underlying problem (which they still don't have) they are using "testing" to verify the stability of the electrical system. But testing will not and can not effectively assess risk.
This is a disaster waiting to happen. Nothing has been solved.
You could be using Tor, or surfing through a proxy, denying cookies, etc.
Why make it easy for them?
Statistics like. "85% of board seats are held by men, so clearly there's a long way to go" are highly misleading.
The underlying premise is that all things being equal, the seats should be 50% female. But that premise is silly.
If 75% of women elect to raise families and focus less on their careers (not a real statistic, just an example) then it would stand to reason that 25% would not hold equally senior positions to their male colleagues who pursued only career. And if women more frequently choose majors like psychiatry, French language, Art History and women's studies, then their lack of representation on boards of tech companies would also be justified.
This is the general problem with numerical male:female ratios: They discount the other options which draw women of their own free will, and misrepresent the existing ratio as "repression" of some kind.
The goal is NOT equal representation. It is equal OPPORTUNITY. If board seats were 50% women, that would likely represent male oppression as there are typically more men pursuing careers applicable to those seats than women. When women complain about unequal ratios they are demanding their cake while wanting to eat it too. They are actually demanding unequal favorable treatment for themselves at the expense of men.
