Not to mention that it's so easy to defeat (plaincloths officer) that no person in their right mind would use the technology to fool police.
I think the prosecution in this case could request an upward departure from the sentencing guidelines because the pending charges mean that his criminal record inadequately shows the seriousness of his past behavior. What I'm saying is that there are rules and formulas that the judge is supposed to follow.
There are federal sentencing guidelines. There are criteria for things like past offenses, cooperation with the investigation, among other things. The judge is not bound to strictly follow them, but if the judge just hands out maximum sentences with little explanation, that could be grounds for an appellate court to reduce the sentence. Also, I am not a lawyer either.
When I was using a feature phone like a nokia 6555, the mobile version was a nice thing to have. But has anyone actually used a feature phone in the last 5 years? Most people either want a basic "dumb" phone, or a smart phone, with little demand in between the 2.
Firefox was supposed to be just a browser. Has Mozilla forgotten why Firefox was created in the first place?
Nope. Common carriers can be held repsonsible for turning a blind eye to illegal traffic.
No need to dumster dive. There are plenty of OSes that support i686 cpus. DragonFly targets high end amd64 servers. Not every OS needs to target everyone.
The release anouncment makes it seem like they didn't have old or low end desktops in mind as their audience.
Firefox has had the ask-to-activate for flash for some time. Go to about:addons, select plugins from the menu on the left, and next to each plugins there is a menu where you can select ask to activate.
If he was to run a drug ring from one of those countries, extradition is a moot point as he could simply be prosecuted by local courts. Best to find a place where the officals are easy to bribe.
Nah-uh. Private browsing mode is for reading the New York Times.
Staph in your nose is unlikely to cause harm. Commensal infections of staph are very common. If it finds a way to get deeper inside your body, say through a cut, then you have a problem. If it's a resistant strain, then the antibiotics won't help you.
Read the summary? They're looking to piss off Australians here.
An application is not a standard.
A bit too late to convict anyone at this point don't you say?
There are problems with many of the forensic methods used. However, eyewitness testimony is even less reliable. The way humans recall events from episodic memory is seriously flawed. Forensic evidence is always circumstantial evidence, and should always be treated as such. That's in addition to any flaws on a particular method.
As pointed out here, this man was suspected of being the ripper before there was any DNA evidence. DNA evidence just makes the case stronger.
