I think the purpose of "bug bounties" is to encourage researchers to document and report bugs. It's not like anyone is going to make a full time job out of collecting the reward money, but if you happen across a potential security hole, it's worth your time to reproduce and report it.
More like an all you can eat buffet where they turn you away if you exceed a certain weight. They claim something like their seats can't accommodate you, but in reality they didn't mean all *you* can eat.
Then why do they call it "unlimited?" It's not up to the consumer to know if a company's business plan is sustainable or not. Claiming unlimited usage and then having a cap is just false advertising.
This acquisition makes less sense the more hear about it. Facebook paid $16 billion (or is it $19 billion?) for a messaging app, and they don't even know who's using it? How on earth did they put a value on this thing? It boggles the mind.
I'd rather have a team of racers in a car specially designed for racing whizz by me, as opposed to the typical SUV, with a coffee in one hand and a cell phone in the other, who has no reason at all to be travelling 90mph in the first place. Ed Bolian was probably being as careful as he could be, a crash would definitely ruin his shot at the record.
Isn't this basically tricking your body into thinking you're hotter or cooler than you really are? It might work temporarily but wearing this thing all day, every day sounds like it could mess up your body's ability to regulate your temperature.
I would imagine the robot would make burgers cheaper, and the lines would move faster, meaning more burgers for your average lazy american!
When you consider the overhead they're saving - the contractor takes care of interviewing, hiring, benefits, etc. this is the direction a lot of employers are going. It saves them a lot of time and liability, assuming the contractor is competent. This guy you describe may have started out at Best Buy but he turned out to be useful so I guess the contractor did their job.
I would say if Watson's programmers are fairly confident he can get more than 50% of the questions correct, all they have to do is program him to buzz in on every question. Could make for a boring Jeopardy game.
If you read the full article, Watson was regularly crushing human competition. They've been testing it. They also mention Watson takes a "room full of servers" to run, so I doubt you're actually playing against it on the NYT site. Finally, that game was quite a bit different than jeopardy in that there are no timers and you get to answer every question or pass before Watson has a chance to buzz in. It should be interesting to see how Watson does in February.
Frankly I don't even know why you're going to college if you think it's an injustice that they're making you attend your classes.
So, I guess the better question is why are you taking a lecture course from them when you already know the material, and aren't interested in listening to them talk about it? Aren't you wasting both their and your time signing up for that course?
You could always freeze yourself until the DRM is gone. Just make sure some asshole doesn't forget to unfreeze you and send you 500 years into the future.
Not sure what the trial has to do with it
Because according to the judge they are responsible for the actions of others who used their website to trade copyrighted files.
I live in Buffalo, but the fact that these caps are coming to Rochester bothered me enough to email Time Warner saying that if they ever bring this to my area, I'll immediately switch providers. Too close for comfort!
