Letâ(TM)s hope that large U.S. publisherâ(TM)s will catch up with European counterparts in watermarking adoption.
But looks like, Tesla *can* fix it using over the air software update for ALL users!
I calculate [*] the regenerative braking (usually called dynamic braking in railroad diesel/electric loco parlance) would stop the car in 164 feet without *any* friction brakes.
Tesla hinting software update to address makes me think it might do this: Always keep enough reserve battery capacity to absorb a few slammed brakes. So the emergency regen braking is *always* available. Adjust the regen braking knobs by software to turn it on more aggressively for brake pedal application. It can even turn on the "most aggressive mode" only when the pedals are fully depressed. In that mode if the disc brake and the motor dissipate the energy equally, you are looking at 82 feet stopping distance for a car that weighs nearly as much as Ford F150. (3850 lb LR version M3 vs 4050 lb F150 low end).
Microsoft cited different reasons for taking this decision. It said that malware authors have abused this mechanism for exploit campaigns, but also that Office users rarely used these features anyway. In addition, Microsoft said it was also taking this decision after Adobe announced Flash's end-of-life for 2020. Microsoft stopped supporting Silverlight in 2016, with the final end-of-support date for enterprise customers being scheduled for 2021.
ZDNet obtained permission from two Xfinity customers to check their information. We were able to obtain their full address and zip code — which both customers confirmed. The site returned the Wi-Fi name and password — in plaintext — used to connect to the network for one of the customers who uses an Xfinity router. The other customer was using his own router — and the site didn't return the Wi-Fi network name or password.
The pilot program, codenamed “Project Indigo,” recently established an information-sharing channel for a subunit of FS-ISAC known as the Financial Systemic Analysis & Resilience Center (FSARC). That subunit shares “scrubbed” cyberthreat data, including malware indicators, with the Fort Mead-based Cyber Command, according to current and former U.S. officials.
The broad purpose of Project Indigo is to help inform U.S. Cyber Command about nation-state hacking aimed at banks. In practice, this intelligence is independently evaluated and, if appropriate, Cyber Command responds under its own unique authorities.
“Don’t be evil” has been part of the company’s corporate code of conduct since 2000. When Google was reorganized under a new parent company, Alphabet, in 2015, Alphabet assumed a slightly adjusted version of the motto, “do the right thing.” However, Google retained its original “don’t be evil” language until the past several weeks. The phrase has been deeply incorporated into Google’s company culture—so much so that a version of the phrase has served as the wifi password on the shuttles that Google uses to ferry its employees to its Mountain View headquarters, sources told Gizmodo.
Could Google be doing something similar today?
Most Android users enter their Google credentials into their Android device without giving it much thought, so they may not be aware of just how much is disabled when the credentials are removed. I invite you to give it a try for yourself. Of course, you will expect certain things to stop working, such as syncing to Gmail or accessing your paid apps, but perplexingly it will also block access to things that don't require personalized cloud access at all.
For example, you will no longer be able to download software from the App store, even if it's free and publicly available. You'll lose access to Google Daydream VR, including third-party apps that just want to use the headset. All your third-party apps will disappear from Android Auto. Some third-party apps relying on Google Play Services will stop functioning entirely. Google Assistant refuse to speak to you at all. Voice dictation using the virtual keyboard refuses to function.
What's worse is that Google will not allow you to pick and choose which apps you enter your credentials into. You don't enter them into the app, you enter them into the system. This can result in all sorts of undesirable side-effects. For example, Google will sync your calendar and contacts off to their servers without getting permission, because it will require you to explicitly opt-out, and who knows if it will finish syncing before you do. Also, it will enable remote phone wiping, and won't let you truly disable it without rooting the device. As a result, anyone who gains control of your Google account, including Google itself, could remotely wipe your phone at any time.
The cynical among us may suspect Google is deliberately holding Android features to ransom in order to coerce customers into connecting to a Google account.
Big data corporations nowadays are not shy to brag about how lucrative it is to collect detailed personal information on their users so they can sell it to advertisers, or exploit it directly. Most Android users have gotten those creepy 'Hey we noticed you were at a certain place. Would you like to write a review?' messages popping up on their phones. It would not come as a surprise to learn that Google is invested in ensuring that kind of intrusive data collection continues to flow, and that they may be going to some unethical lengths to make it happen.
My question to Slashot is, is this even legal? Is this the same crime that Microsoft Microsoft was committing back in the nineties? They're forcing you to use their free Google account service and all its associated functionality in order to access other features of the device.
Or are they perhaps guilty of another crime such as deceptive advertising for not explaining that, in addition to money, you will have to hand over your data as well to be able to use to your new Daydream View headset.
And when you do log in, is it illegal for Google to require you to opt-out of sending personal information to its servers, rather than asking you to opt-in first? Do they have a legal requirement to seek permission first before beaming your statistics off to Google HQ?
In addition to unification, the paper goes into great detail describing the expansion of the universe, dark energy, dark matter, gravity, quantum entanglement, energy/mass and their relation, the birth of the universe from a quantum fluctuation, the ensuing inflationary period, the trigger event that causes inflation to end and the resulting release of energy that we now see as the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). Calculations of the quantity, age, density and temperature of the CMB are precise to the best measurement data available.
A reader friendly narrative of the physicist may be found here:
In total the paper presents 27 verifiable results which may be found here:
Conservancy rarely talks publicly about specifics in its ongoing GNU General Public License (GPL) enforcement and compliance activity, in accordance with our Principles of Community Oriented GPL Enforcement. We usually keep our compliance matters confidential — not for our own sake — but for the sake of violators who request discretion to fix their mistakes without fear of public reprisal.
We're thus glad that, this week, Tesla has acted publicly regarding its current GPL violations and has announced that they've taken their first steps toward compliance. While Tesla acknowledges that they still have more work to do, their recent actions show progress toward compliance and a commitment to getting all the way there.
Who will be the first to combine this sensor with micro solar powered store & transmit electronics?
Potentially embeddable anywhere (with sufficient resources), these will lead to universal ability to see anything, an exponential expansion of our awareness. Useful for machines seeing inside themselves. Abusable for nefarious leaders seeing people resisting them.
Should you happen to be installing some of these, make sure you add a few extra that you control, pointed at the corrupt leadership, so their misdeeds can be leaked and they can be ejected from power promptly.
What I wonder is, if encryption can be "instantly broken," does this also mean that remaining crypto-coins, can be instantly discovered?
