Comment Re:Maybe Snowden Stole a Honeypot (Score 1) 291

in fact, it is so irresponsible to give one person access to so much secret information that either the NSA is completely incompetent or it would have a reason to permit one contractor access to so many documents.

Have you even read anything about how Edward Snowden came to be in possession of said documents? Nothing was GIVEN to him. He used other peoples accounts that DID have access to said documents via social engineering and other means.

Comment Usable on a motorcycle? (Score 1) 53

I'm a bike rider (Motor, not foot powered) and I can think of many uses this would be handy for when on a cruise around the country side. The standard email/speed/weather apps would be handy. But how about adding a rear, wide-angle camera view that I could glimpse at without turning my head around. That would be pretty useful.

Comment Cryptocloud VPN services (Score 1) 193

I've used Cryptocloud for many years with very good success. Not the cheapest option out there. But they have many options for connecting, numerous countries in which to connect to, and many different payment options. They take security/privacy seriously if that is a concern. They do no bandwidth throttling and no logs are kept on the VPN appliances. Well worth checking out.

This could be solved by replacing the IR source in the 'projector' (actually a point source and a pinhole grid) with one of a different wavelength, and adding appropriate filters to the IR cameras in each Kinect.

Or maybe timing the grid light to be off while the other camera is on and vis-versa. Alternating back and forth quickly like the 3D LCD 'shutter' lenses. This way the grids would not interfere with each other. Don't have to turn off the cameras, just don't use the 3D grid data from those frames where the opposite grid is being used.

Just my .01 worth. :)

Consider, do you need to be convicted by a jury of your peers to be confined to quarantine if you have a dangerous infectious disease? Is quarantine of those with infectious diseases punishment?

What if that person has been diagnosed with something like HIV? Should they be quarantined against their will since they poses a risk to public safety?

It's a slippery slope with shoddy breaks.
