Comment Chip (Score 1) 184

While chips have been standard in Europe for some time, I'm starting to see more and more US businesses starting to use the chip in cards over the past 6 months, especially drug stores.

It is interesting though that many people do not have a PIN associated with these chip cards in the US, so it is still "authenticated" with a signature.

Comment Illegal phone running (Score 5, Interesting) 140

I just love the idea that we are going to create a whole new "War on encryption" that might be even less winnable than the War on Drugs.

Instead of people running guns from less restrictive jurisdictions, we will now all be criminals importing phones because we want to buy phones win normal industry standard encryption.

Fine. You have picked the worst possible scenario for driving. Rush hour in a huge European city.

In nearly every other scenario, driving is going to be the shorter time option, unless your departure and destination point happen to be right next to a mass transit location (and driving is till going to be shorter at no-rush hour times).
