The only problem with naming satellites after early astronomers is that when I read the headline, there is a moment where I think "wait -- isn't he dead?"
And yet somehow we survived with these 10,000 people with connections to subversive organizations roaming freely in our midst. Amazing.
Dear ALL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES: *THIS* is why we don't want you to have infinite surveillance. Because those 10,000 people you had files on did EXACTLY NOTHING. You want to wiretap someone, go get some ACTUAL FUCKING EVIDENCE. Not just "he read this book and knows this guy and likes to encrypt his files."
But... but... but... open!
... the distant third and fourth place competitors in a four-horse market.
1 - Verizon Wireless - 125.3M subscribers
2 - AT&T Mobility - 118.7M subscribers
3 - Sprint Corporation - 54.8M subscribers
4 - T-Mobile US - 52.9M subscribers
The upper two are about 2x larger than the smaller two. Significant, but I wouldn't call it "distant". Distant to me would be something like a 10x difference. The market is about 1/3, 1/3, 1/6, 1/6.
It was in the updater for iTunes 2, and if you a) had your library on a second hard drive and b) if the hard drive had a space for the *first character* of the name (eg, " Music") it would erase the drive.
I rarely say this, but RTFA. Not only does it have gigabit ethernet, you can optionally get 2 or more gig-E ports.
... he's update this for social media.
The difference is, you actually can make money selling social media snake-oil to companies. For now, at least...
Looking forward to the day when I can watch old European softcore movies on Youtube and actually understand what's going on. (Besides the obvious.)
68% of primary and secondary teachers are concerned that their pupils have a better understanding of computing than they do. Moreover, the pupils reinforced this finding with 47% claiming that their teachers need more training...
Polls are great, but just imagine what it would be like if we lived in a world where there was actually a way to measure who knows what...
The big difference is college isn't legally required. The only students who will go are those who want to go, and colleges won't be inclined to let kids slip through with a D-minus-minus just to get them through the system. The reason people graduate HS practically illiterate is because you can't force someone to learn. Make it optional, and require passing grades to stay in, and the problem is solved. If you don't pass, you don't get to go. If you fail, you're disqualified from the free program. (I would imagine. Didn't actually RTFA.)
This won't single-handedly solve all the problems this country faces with regard to education, but I think it's a great idea.
1,700 words into this and one of his two conclusions is that flat-rate boxes are flat rate? (Up to 70 lbs which, IIRC, is printed on the side of the fucking box.) Kill me now.
... that involve me turning around for up to 30 seconds. It's cute. The lesson here is, if you let your machine out of your sight for a while, don't be surprised if it comes back rooted. Isn't rule #1 of computer security always "If you don't have physical security, you don't have security"?
What exactly is the vector here? Give someone a thunderbolt hard drive and hope they plug it in and hope they run a firmware update while the drive is connected? Oh no, this could affect potentially dozens of people per decade! Outside of very targeted attacks, who will get hit by this? And if you think you are targeted, the solution is simple: don't have anything but the power cord plugged in when updating firmware. (Which is how you are supposed to do it anyway.)
This isn't exactly a drive-by download.
I don't think he even knows this site has comments. Or that it's a website at all. He probably thinks he's just singing into a can.

I only recently finished convincing all my non-technie friends that the Internet is not a series of tubes; now I have to start explaining to them that bandwidth does not actually come in buckets. Do you realize how many pounds of email I'll have to write about this? Fuck it, I quit.
