This! A 1000 times this! It seems the "modern" way is to cripple expression and power so that everybody is equally handicapped. That's just fucking stupid to cripple your best (coders) because your worst can't keep up!
A bunch of jerks eliminating themselves from the common pool.
I did RTFA and found this gem: "the iOS version of the RCS Trojans hits only jailbroken devices". Also
“Once the sample is ready, the attacker delivers it to the mobile device of the victim. Some of the known infection vectors include spearphishing via social engineering – often coupled with exploits, including zero-days; and local infections via USB cables while synchronizing mobile devices,”
So, ya, while this is bad, it is not in the same league as what NSA's surveillance of everyone and everything is.
No, I checked. All the nukes in my grandma's basement are legal!
For all the exaggerated scary words used like "one of the largest", "more than 60 campaigns" etc, there was not a single solid data point about the actual devices infected. Not even a ball park number - like whether it is tens, thousands or millions of devices.
Makes me suspect the claims.
You've characterized the slashdot reader very well. They are libertarian as long as their jobs are safe and their lifestyle is not threatened. They want no government interference whether it's job market or drug ban. But put THEM in a market, start evaluating options for replacing them, they become protectionist!
Sure, as soon as you accept any product imported from US will have an automatic 20% extra "US tax" in other countries. You want to sell your products in other countries, but you want to outlaw other countries selling their products or services! That is not hypocritical, at all!
Is it 10-days? I thought it's immediate.
Also, they say it's rented on market prices and is open to outsiders, so the "24-hours to vacate" may not be reality.
Hey don't diss Yahoo! mail. That's what I use to signup to various websites so my regular email is not spammed by websites that I used only once in my life.
I'ven't followed it, but if what you said is right, then the biggest culprit here is the federal court.
Thanks. I feel so stupid for not checking!
Wish I had mod points! This app seems really useful! Installed it, and kicked Facebook off my phone.
On my laptops, I do the same - run FB in either a different browser altogether, or a different Firefox user profile. I wish Firefox supported multiple processes simultaneously with each one under a different profile.
But I have succumbed and installed it on my phone, but the new permissions are making me think. I have not updated my FB yet, but will probably delete it and check it through browser if I ever need to.
I heard Japan does honor and respect age, but it is not true in India. Definitely not in the IT industry (when I say IT, I include software development as well). Every product company publicly talks about how they want more "senior people" in technical ladder, but in reality, very few believe or support much. Managers will always be nudging you to gain more "visibility" and show more contribution. Even if you do the work of 5 people at your work, it will not count. Instead if you just don't fuckup the regular job, but talk bs or write a white paper (that nobody reads), you will be considered a super star. Because you know the managers want "well rounded" people at senior positions.
