So if they caught these asshats the total surveillance state they (the NSA) built is justifiable? The ends justify the means... I can't say I agree with you.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
You mean like silverlight?
You had me till that last sentence.
"Everything else is a joke compared to them."
Keep telling yourself this. Your future looks great from here!
Name one enterprise willing to accept that. Dell won't piss off their customers that badly no matter how much MS offers them. It would become the new Nokia. Which OEM would accept willfully the kiss of death MS would be forcing on them?
I could give a toss what you think, and this information is publicly available. Don't be a ponce limey.
the browser they switch to is likely inferior to Google search? WTF does this even mean?
A browser is not a search engine. People can change search engines and not need to change the software they are using to do so.
In the US they got away with murder, most likely because they gave the feds any piece of data and every back door they could dream of.
Wrong. You can use a deprecated engine which is limited slow and inferior. So all those who want to compete with iOS cannot have a level playing field.
Microsoft was fined, they paid fines, and they had forced official remedies mandated, which they violated as well. The latter part being within the last two you years. You should be ashamed of yourself for coming here and deliberately lying so you don't have a way to get called out for being a shill/asshat...
People like you keep conversations from moving forward. Nice to be that guy asshole.
What about the lawsuits where no one else could have a browser installed in windows upon purchase? Or that you can't get a PC without paying for Windows whether you intended to use it with Windows or not?
By nature of Google making the algorithm which ranks the results, it is inherently biased. The only way to prevent bias, would be to make the results pages completely randomized. Even then the randomization would hint at bias in the way it defined random. Google and their search results are and always have been a carefully manicured set of results, based off of choices of those behind it.
Where is the lock in? Where are the predatory practices that make certain that no one can make a product that replaces Google? What are the costs associated with a user using Bing/DDG/Yahoo/dogpile or whatever?
Now if Google mandated that you could only use Chrome to use the search engine, or Chrome OS/Linux then this may be slightly similar to MS in the 90's. But this isn't even close. Also where is the FUD campaign where anyone using another browser or search engine is getting threatened with a lawsuit? Where is Google hiring proxy companies to prevent MS from working on Bing as a competitor? Where is the mandate that only Google can be used by any pc that is purchased?
The LiDAR I use for Drones and Construction/BIM are not capable of penetrating a canopy. Small holes in the canopy also are not enough. you need a fairly accurate measurement across the whole ground to find trenches and other ground anomalies.
Which class of laser are they using which can penetrate the canopy of a jungle? There are many sensors more appropriate for the searching: Ground penetrating radar. Multispectral or hyperspectral camera sensors to check the leaf patterns for varied chemicals. Also for the larger areas covered it seems like a fixed wing design might be more appropriate.
