The "Skyrocket" was basically an LTE SII.
This is far from over. This was just the first skirmish in a war that is going to last for some time. I have the feeling that a number of politicians are going to be surprisingly well funded in the next election.
You're basically being paid to keep it private until patched. Brute Logic blew it.
Groupon is an Open Source shop, and their staff is quite aware of good practices.
Had Brute Logic not disclosed, I am sure a check would be on its way.
What is management of that power worth? What is spare capacity worth?
Instead of few to many, the grid has to become many to many. The equations for worth are going to become very complex.
EU privacy laws. The US Government is at risk of losing safe harbour from the EU. If these companies did not locate somewhere in the EU, they would be at risk of being cut off from there customers. This is probably the greatest thing ever to happen to tech employment in Dublin.
I suspect they just need to tweak some PID loops at this point. I don't think throttling is an issue. Unlike the Lunar Lander, the target of the landing is a concrete point. Hovering should not be needed. Drop it on the spot, done.
All C code ends up as assembler, anyway. It just gets deleted, most of the time, before you see it.
Redundant Array of Inexpensive Cloud Storage.
Store redundant copies on as many providers as necessary to provide the integrity desired.
I can imagine sharing other loads on the evil book of faces. Automagically!
The current version on a 2012 Nexus 7 is 5.2. 5.0 was months ago.
I guess if I had an apartment at the CO that might work out well.
And probably even earlier. But, one thing that everyone seems to be ignoring is that AT&T, and I am sure many others, kept all its call records. It treats the data as an asset.
I would not want to be Pakistan, or any nation to the east of Iran, after that. There will be a lot of fallout from the fused region of glass previously known as Iran.
Your first and absolute responsibility is to the Constitution.
The NSA has failed miserably in that role.
Special effects, etc. have evolved enormously over that time period. Acting has not.
