127.0.53.53 will be returned when a collision is detected. AFAICT this means when you query DNS for a non-existant 2nd level domain in one of the new TLDs.
Tips received from private companies or individuals are not subject to the same constitutional limits on evidence, provided they are not being paid by law enforcement. This is why CrimeStoppers exists.
Microsoft has something called PhotoDNA which scours Bing, Outlook, etc. for child porn. I believe they also make it available to other companies. In fact, given the difficulty of getting images to train on, I wouldn't be surprised if Google was using Microsoft's PhotoDNA technology.
The FTC seems like they have the right tools to tackle net neutrality, whereas it's not clear that the FCC does. For example, they could declare that ISPs letting certain peering links saturate to unreasonable levels without disclosure is an unfair and deceptive trade practice. If a customer purchases Internet access, they expect equal access to all of the Internet. They could also declare that cable franchise monopolies interfering with competing video services (like Netflix) is an anti-trust violation.
The problem is that the FCC has limited regulatory power unless it reclassifies Internet access as a telecommunications service, which is considered the "nuclear option." Prior attempts to enforce neutrality have been thrown out by the courts. At this point, to do anything meaningful they'd probably have to involve Congress... And I bet you can figure out how likely that is.
... except Amazon is based in Seattle. While his location wasn't disclosed, I would bet it's in the Seattle area. Hopefully this case will shut down some of the non-compete clauses used in Washington State...
For a while they had their XScale line of ARM processors and SoCs. I think one of the dumber moves they've made was to sell that line of business off to Marvell in 2006 and go "all-in" on x86 before they were ready.
It doesn't really matter where you are; there is no real competition in the US broadband market. Sure, DSL exists, but old copper lines can't handle nearly the bandwidth that coax can. I live only a few blocks away from the CO, but due to the age of the wires, I could barely get 1.5 mbps.
Part of the trailer shows a TI SmartRF 802.15.4/ZigBee sniffer. It's probably unrelated to the traffic prioritization signals.
The summary says it's "a converter box that allows cable subscribers with older televisions to receive digital channels," but now that the FCC allows cable companies to encrypt ALL channels, it's pretty much mandatory. Sure, you might be able to convince them to give you a CableCARD for your compatible TV, but I've heard that they make it difficult to get.
In Capitalist America, news agencies control the state!
This was required in Oregon when I was in high school. I was amazed to discover it wasn't mandatory everywhere.
What about ARM executables? Windows RT ships with most of the Windows utilities ported to ARM, as well as Office and
If you increase VLC's gain too high, it will begin to clip the audio signal (just like anything else would). Speakers do not like clipping. While VLC's volume control makes it easier to distort audio files than, say, Windows Media Player, Dell really should have some hardware protection in place. In this case, it sounds like the speakers were under-spec'ed with respect to the audio amp. Sounds like a design flaw to me!
