There is a suspicion that corporations will bias science for their own ends and profit (oh yes, this treatment is perfectly safe, it won't cure you, but it will treat the symptoms). They will only consider research into a problem worthwhile if they can develop a long-term treatment rather than a final cure.
Only for older iPods/iPhones. If your device is capable of running 7, you will not have the 6.x upgrade available.
It costs $1600 and doesn't seem to have interchangeable lenses -- what, are they insane?
I may be wrong, but since it captures the rays themselves there's less need for various kinds of lenses -- you can just apply the distortions and the likes afterwards in software and achieve exactly the same result. Of course it doesn't completely remove the need for lenses, but it does lessen the need.
Since the short excerpt doesn't mention this I thought to mention: their forums say Illum produces a 4 megapixel image once it's exported in a regular 2D format.
Yeah, that was the part that impressed me too. And it would be easy to drop in smaller tires to size it down for smaller rounds. Where was this when I was splitting wood all the time??
I still have the axe.
Having split lots of cottonwood, I know the problem...
But here's a handy invention that takes all the work right out of it!
Of course, you gotta have a spare $38k to buy it with first...
Horses are well-adapted to the cold. Their winter hair is so insulative that snow will accumulate on their backs, and not melt.
And because horses sweat, they're also adapted to the heat.
Maybe we could ship the PETA idiots to slaughter... none of them has ever done any useful work, so they're probably quite tender and tasty.
That's for sure. I also live in the country, and there are useless horses coming out everyone's ears. Folks who decry horse slaughter should perhaps volunteer the cost to keep a retired horse, which amounts to around $3000/year (plus the vet bills that accumulate more rapidly with an aging animal that, as a species, is already prone to a variety of ailments).
Funny how these same people who are against killing surplus or useless horses also scream about overgrazing... but they don't seem to have a problem with hay in SoCal hitting $600/ton this spring.
Doesn't even need to be that. Most public streets have municipal lampposts at convenient intervals, 30+ feet tall and fairly well immune to tampering (being too tall and too slick to climb easily), that can provide an excellent and permanent vantage point at minimal expense... and quite possibly without anyone noticing, if cameras are installed to look like part of the existing streetlight and as part of "routine maintenance".
Actually, considering how profitable are the side bits (eg. classes that 'sex offenders' must attend, amounting to thousands of dollars for the court system at no particular risk or expense to LE), it wouldn't surprise me at all if this sort of thing began happening.
Have you ever participated in a FIPS certification?
They certainly do check the implementation.
That, and aren't these the types who -- when it isn't their ox being gored -- thatthe government shouldn't be picking winners and losers, and that the *FREE*market should decide?
So, you login to your router via http instead of https?
DD-WRT uses matrixssl to provide SSL/TLS when using HTTPS, not OpenSSL. As such it is not vulnerable.
yep, then you can just be vulnerable to the NSA heartbleed instead.
You might want to research things before you go off on a tangent like this. As http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/content/heartbleed-dd-wrtdd-wrt-online-services quite well explains it, DD-WRT is only vulnerable if you run any of the following services on it: openvpn, squid, freeradius, asterisk, curl, pound, tor, transmission. None of these are enabled by default and most people don't use these services in the first place. DD-WRT's configuration interface, its own, built-in SSH-server and the likes are not vulnerable.
The link also quite conveniently mentions the following tidbit: "OpenSSL was updated immediately in the DD-WRT SVN repository. It can take a view days until we can provide updated versions for all routers."
