How would employees know that such a system was installed?
I can understand a company needing to monitor for leaks - and granted they do own everything. Yes - my cell phone is my "trusted" way out to the internet that my employer can't snoop on (and I'm not using their resources).
Seriously though - how could anyone know the difference between "good" vs "bad" MITM ? Could DNSSEC be fooled in this same way?
Please - get back to work. Nothing else shall be tolerated.
Yes - Calculus can be taught visually, that's how my father taught it to me. I was a wiz at geometry, I can bisect lines and draw tangents in my mind.
Here's what I didn't understand though....what does the area under the curve have to do with anything? The line on graph paper was a line - what value was the area? To me the line was continuous - it didn't end, it was a function - so how could the area have bounds?
When I was given min-max problems in College the area/vol was always something concrete (e.g. land size, a rectangle, or a water bottle). I had a difficult time with Calc in college because I just couldn't relate these "areas under the curve" to anything real. I could do the mechanics (integrate, derivatives etc) and understood acceleration/speed. It wasn't until I was older that some of these area/volumes started to make sense (What is "work?"
My suggestion - I can't be alone in this problem - is to relate these areas to things. Answer the question: why is the area equal/equivalent/describe X ?. I had to take it on faith - my Dad said so. Can this be shown or described and be shown to "be really the answer" -- Why is it that?! A bit more concrete evidence that this is true.
I may not be an abstract thinker in math. This is why I program computers
Handsfree does not lead to less-distraction. The very conversation, hands-free or not, is still a problem. How much of a problem? I don't understand yet.
Most states that I've traveled are hands-free. Although a few are anti-texting only. Fewer yet have no restrictions. I haven't seen any that restrict usage in all-forms (except for specific classes of drivers, such as young/new).
Personally - it's the pushing of "buttons" that causes me pain. Using Google maps on my iPhone is a PITA (finding the "start route" button generally is hard). When hands-free I use Siri and Apple maps (for good or bad) - or having to Unlock the damn thing to make a modification (Siri, stop route, "sorry Dave, I can't do that") I bring my Garmin GPS with me whenever possible as it has the best UI - purpose built for in-car use (actually - navigation in general). I only use my phone for looking around or finding something very specific [planning phase]... then plug it into my Garmin and go. Plus, I tend to find myself in No-signal zones a lot. And of course - Siri has failed me multiple times with bogus routes or wrong address locations (arggg, sorry - breathe, breathe, take a slow breath)
NY has a rule that the driver may not operate a hand-held phone (although observationally few adhere to the law). When I went to CA last week the airport announcement was that CA restricts using any device that was not *specifically designed* for hands-free operation (or in car use?). I just remember the Specifically Designed statement.
VT has an anti-texting law (after a spate of joggers being run down & killed by folks texting and driving). Although they are currently considering upgrading that to hands-free because the Police have said that they can't tell if people are texting or dialing their phone, or using some GPS app. It all looks the same to them so enforcement is complicated. People under a certain age (17?) already may not use a cell phone at anytime in any manner while driving.
And WI or MI has restrictions on where the GPS unit may be mounted (must be mounted on the dash - not on the glass, I assume to keep it low in the field of vision). I can't remember which state - I just know that it caused me to buy a dash-mount for my GPS.
My null position is that I assume every state has a hands-free rule. Keeping with the spirit that Distracted is distracted. But commanding my phone to do my bidding seems like a fair risk to take.
So very inconsistent. I drove cross country a few years ago. My GPS came with a suction-cup window mount, and for a variety of reasons I also purchased a dash-mount. Good thing because one upper-mid-west state requires dash mount. They had a big sign as I crossed the border announcing that requirement along with their cell-phone rules. I think I Googled something like "GPS mounting laws" while prepping for my trip.
I now travel on business and bring the dash-mount with me everywhere I go because of that one restriction. Plus some rental car windshields are too short to use the suction-cup (angle too great) - such that the GPS hits the dash - or I have to place the suction-cup so high that it blocks my view.
Nobody stopped me in CA last week - I put the dashmount right in the middle of the dash above the radio.
Oh, so there you are!
