yes, nk, iran and saudi arabia have rotten, oppressive regimes. but responsible for the turmoil in the world? look around, where the turmoil is happening right now... ukraine, mexico, israel & co., lybia, iraq, syria, south-sudan,

part 1 was pretty bad and part 2 even worse. i feel pretty ashamed for having paid money for those two - and having encouraged bad, soulless, moneygrabbing filmmaking by that. sorry.
it's probably also because here in europe, electicity networks are often state owned (or at least have been installed by the state prior to some privatization-waves over the last 20 years). the last time i can remember a short power outage here in rural austria must have been in the 90ies. there have been some major outages in some other areas, but they are few and far between (and usually mended within minutes to a few hours).
i'd guess, most "lost tools" end up in a co-workers toolbox anyway, so those $ 35.000 are probably exaggerated. then it's more about organizing and making inventory once a year. and if it's about theft - put rfid-tags into the tools, and cover the exits with scanners. that's cheaper and less prone to fail than lots of expensive toolboxes with embedded computers (btw. - i'd steal the toolbox as a whole, if they were that nerdy)
no, it's about default passwords. in your analogy, that would be like looking for the keys under the doormat or in other obvious hiding places.
guess what - my door is never locked, but i'll give you a good-hiding if you come and try whether it is locked.
"Particularly alarming was the number of camera feeds of sleeping babies, which people often set up to protect them, but, being unaware of the risks, don't change the username or password from the default options that came with the cameras." so, where exactly is the risk of someone seeing my sleeping baby - unless i'm a pedophile and doing dirty things to it live on camera?
btw., as this
/. story arrived shortly after some currentC retailers were criticized for disabling the already working apple pay at their shops, this is probably a targeted pr-effort to reduce bad word of mouth in the tech-/early adopters - comunity. judging by the comments here, it looks like it backfired. hehe
no way in hell this has any chance of beating "place your finger on the home button for about a second" - even paying with credit card is much more convenient. there won't be any success with a more cumbersome process.
because a moderately high iq (say around 120) unfornunately doesn't make you socially competent - there are plenty of assholes around that range. i'd argue that if you were smart enough - say 140 or above - you'd see the futility of being a total dick. but you'd probably have no energy problems anyways if you gas anybody below that. also, tv would be better.
but regarding the first question - how long were the ramp-times of your plants?
since Descent, there have not been a lot of games where you have to navigate through 3d space without a sense of "up" or down". loved it, back in the day - gimme a kickstarter-remake to back. a new game would be even better (as long as they don't dumb down the level-design)
obviously, under ideal conditions for the samsung (brightly lit, mounted to a tripod, canon lens stopped down, canon footage graded in post to match the overly sharp look & oversaturated colors of the galaxy), they will produce similar videos. but that's the one exception, not the rule.
i'm in. the 75mbit download i got at the moment seem enough for now (but i just recently upgraded from 7mb) - but the upload-speed (7mb) could be faster.
it would definitely give a spin to the entertainment value of some televised thing like mars one if the ship was full of suicidal people.
