I feel a bit foolish now.
The trick with Write is the authentication. Now google has to figure out how to do an authentication scheme it likes (read "they developed to take over the web") for that to happen.
Now we need to factor in an encryption scheme that works across Windows, AIX, etc with enterprise support backing it up say $1.2 million to licence for all servers and locations (seem low but hey) and we have $1.8 million to spend.
Now we gotta pay people some prices to do that work so lets say $.5 million (500,000) so about $100 per man hour (bout right) and we have $1.3 to spend.
Now pay the electrical company for all that processing time (depending if they had THEM process it or they did it on their servers) at about $.5 million and we have $.8 million (800k) to explain.
Throw in some training for a few Ks to ensure the techs know how to handle the system lets say 100,000k for that (ouch! hey that is specializations ya know) 700K to go.
Maybe a little software rework (even if it wasnt really necessary) for another 100k and we have 600K to explain.
Opps forgot the "maintenance contract" which is often 10% of the sale price so 600k and lookie there, 6million blown pretty quick.
Thanks for shopping.
Wonder if someone will patch this like they did the PDF exploit and put it on Cydia.
Besides, bling drives are usually small anyway and suck. I would be very suspicious of a "bling" drive that was of any large size.
Dupe isn't even a day old!!
Oh I am going to be modded into oblivion for this, and likely loose some karma, but it was actually ~27 hours (4:20 am for article1 on 6-23, 7:19am for article2 on 6-24).
However this trend is quickly becoming problematic and approaching same front page dupes and soon both in the 15 count RSS feed. Do the editors even read the site?
Here is what I am seeing. Austrailia blocks these sites and what happens:
- Technology is downloaded and used to get around this filtering (VPNs,alternate DNS,etc.)
- New sites pop up creating a game of whack-a-mole
- Lawsuits and public outcry killing the project
- Long shot but the viewing of these sites might go down
Now you will notice that nowhere on that list does the terms "kiddie porn sites go away" or "kids stop being exploited" appear. It will continue to happen at places around the world, I honestly think response will go 1-2-3-4 in Australia, and the intended purpose will never happen. Want a better option one that is even more sinister? Honeypot em. Dont filter. Trap em. Watch the sites you Blacklist, observe the people going, trace and trap the network and strike hard.
Block sites. Everthing ventured, nothing gained.
I played the demo. The instant I had to juggle weapons I gave up on it. Duke deserves better. Try again Gearbox.
