yes. I lost my mobile phone (cellphone) and it was found by a car detailing firm when I was to sell my car - actually under the passenger seat but that's another story. IOT we really aren't there yet I believe - 'specially for oldies like me who don't own or want to own a smartphone.
You have obviously never worked with vulnerable people. Their very vulnerabilty leaves them open to being "forced" - read coerced here - into doing things that most people would not do. And it's not just a matter of a person deciding what their interaction with their computer or the internet will be. It is far more complex than that.
"Google says that AdSense content is “reviewed by real people and clever machines” before appearing on websites. But the system doesn’t appear to be foolproof."
If you actually believe that it's foolproof, then you could well be labeled a fool.
To understand that joke you need to be aware that in some place Uranus is pronounced your-anus (here in oz for example). The old 9th grade joke - " Mr R, can you see uranus with a telescope?" "yes if you use a mirror lens"....
.... yes I'm old enough to remember building electronic stuff from discrete parts, and now it is actually quite difficult to do so other than for complete trivia. Whilst some of the components are not discrete, this would be a fun project for kids and they would actually learn something from it.
Fucking nora can't any of you see a joke? Down-modded to a troll? I'm a died in the wool evolutionist who believes that the earth is significantly older than 10 00 years and that the earth is likely not the only place that life exists. Further the Bible is a collection of stories that have been selected to push a certain view that other "books" that do not follow that view are ignored or discounted.
God created the earth and its inhabitants - and therefore rods and cones - somewhere less than 10 000 years ago. Please, please keep this unscientific tripe off Slashdot - after all, all who post here are rational thinkers.... aren't we?
