I suppose, the touch interfaces weren't ready... and XP kinda sucks in retrospect anyway... But determining the right pricepoint is a marketing decision. I suspect it never occurd to them to price it as an expensive toy you don't need, rather than what they did, as an investment in productivity.
Marketing department at Apple, they didn't work there.
Easy, show them the capital expendature will increase reveneu enough that the margin between the operating costs and the reveneu by enough to make back the capital expendature or thereabouts (smallish sunk costs are ok) within a year or two.
I know this is a (racist) troll, but the lack of a decent social safety net and government mandated contraband is what drives up crime... Most people would prefer a decent job type job.
Those really big ones that produce the heavy metals don't last nearly that long. Just a ouple billion iirc.
It's a quibble, but I'm pretty sure it's symmetric. You use DH to establish a shared secret (the same on both sides). The only assymetric part of ssl is the certificates that are used to prevent man in the middle... I'd hardly call X509 ssl, just a necessary evil (or is it, convergence.io seems dead).
He must have had a shitty lawyer. The intent to commit a crime is usually pretty hard to prove, despite the millions of comments to the contrary above. If they proved that, maybe he really did have intent or maybe he had a public defender that abdicated immediately.
I'm no expert, but I'd say he meant 45% of the score... where 100% would be all of it.
amen. Every time I use my windows machine a bunch of separate shitty updaters pops up a window about a new version. Man I wish I could go to windows update and update all my software in the background. I'm surprised Microsoft hasn't picked up on the repo thing yet. It's better for everyone.
I totally get your point, but I can kill without a gun. They have a *device* to kill people with. I can kill people too, using my kitchen knife or a bat.
A key is usually an integer, or a prime integer in some manifold or group. Asymmetric crypto depends on problems being easy one way and "hard" to reverse. elliptic curves are thought to be "harder" than the usual prime factoring. So yeah. It's how you use the bits. It takes a lot smaller number to provide a sufficiently ambiguous (in the reverse) operation.
Little if any talk about http://convergence.io/ — watch the linked bulletproof youtube about why SSL certs are so broken and why this package would be so awesome (if popular).
ECC keys are shorter than RSA keys. 256 ecc is like 3072 rsa bits.
This goofy shit is why I quit using gnome years ago. Even unity is better than this one size fits all usability shit that's handed down. I mean, at least give us a configuration option for it.... Anyway, I thought the gnome shell was even less relevant than unity. Cinimon? I kindof like the tiling window managers. I don't see the big thrill with gnome anyway. It's not a window manager... It's not a window decorator... what is it exactly? desktop what? I tried to live without it completely and used ratpoison for like 2 years. Tiling window managers have their own annoyances, but I really honestly didn't miss gnome. In fact, it was refreshing to not have usability dictated down. I often dictated it up by patching ratpoison -- which is small enough for me to modify easily. Yeah, I suppose I could patch gnome too, but this kind of user hating stuff comes down super regularly from these guys.
It's called shoveling money to the EFF. They won something sorta recently along these lines, but there's a long way to go.
