I got four letters for you:J-U-R-Y. A panel of reasonable people will be able to interpret the meaning of the upskirt law, and be able to differentiate between pervs on the subway and accidental photo bombs the beach. That's the whole point of juries and why they are such an important part of the justice system. No need to be a slippery-slope absolutist.
no, corporations don't want control, they just want money. they're not going to sieze control of something just for the heck of it or to boost their egos. they'll do it if it raises the stock.
yes but do you see an ad on TV and think wait a minute I better check my records to make sure whatever filmed this ad had the appropriate permits!
what does sherlock holmes have to do with anything.
as the article says, the malware is a trojan that the user downloads and it scrapes the address book. it never breaks out of its sandbox into neighboring systems. it doesn't pwn your phone. hate to move the goalposts on you, but show me something that's not a single-user trojan.
The whole point of the law was to outlaw the invasive photography known as "upskirts". Everyone is fine with a society in which people wear skirts but people don't do "upskirts". How can we make this happen?
it's one thing for your phone to get pwned. what scares me is when automakers start rolling out vehicles with android integration. what will the firewalls be? will haxors be able to pwn your car?
the benefit of ios integration is it is super limited in scope. basically your iphone is displayed on the car in dash screen, and dash button commands are routed back to the iphone. The iphone can't talk to the car computer systems at all. this is how I want it!
maybe hostile nations should stop trying to pwn open source projects with back door code. you tell me that all code is inspected, I say bs. instead of "don't ask don't tell" we need rigorous account checking. Who is the person submitting the code? what is his background? what other code has he submitted?
It's pretty easy to avoid being tracked by this technology if you've chosen to live and work where you have more than one feasible way of getting around. It's tragic the amount of faith people have that freeways will forever remain unpriced and that gasoline will always be cheap.
lame and foolish. I'm not even going to bother writing a cogent response.
I can vouch for it second-hand. my SIL got her car repossessed even though she moved in with her bf so the repo men couldn't find her. she found out a scanner car had been trolling the neighborhoods and found her car.
I can see how it would be profitable, because you don't have to scan ALL neighborhoods, just shitty ones. it's like you don't fish in the entire ocean, just the parts where you know there will be fish.
A policy of "No n-words, q-words or catholics" is not, generally, legally binding.
actually no, it's expressly prohibited by the civil rights act, which itself is an implementation of the 14th amendment. so it is very illegal to do so and will get your ass sued.
i watch tmz a lot, and can vouch for the fact that they get up in peoples faces and ask them provocative questions to try to get a rise out of them.
no, not with the new os. now when you reset it the thing asks you for your pwd before starting up again. otherwise it's bricked.
at the very least there's a driver for finding cures when there's profit to be had.
