It predicted the future like a calendar or an almanac predicted the future.
Too bad it wasn't a sports almanac then...
The witnesses are credible. They give specific, verifiable details that others have confirmed.
If these stories were true, these same specific, verifiable details would also allow Appelbaum to find out which of his witnesses were singing. Completely defeating the goal of anonymity and professional backlash from the hands of Appelbaum.
So, that makes me think that their stated reason for wanting to stay anonymous is bullshit. And that maybe other "details" are bullshit too.
Your argument is valid but "his 45 year old wife behind the wheel" gets priority
Well that still doesn't rule out the "or indeed anything else like a dropped handbag" theory
how long before they use the tactic of releasing false information about a company they dislike simply to crash their share price or worse abuse it to make a small fortune themselves
. You know, they can make a small fortune even by telling the truth. Just sell it short (or have a straw-man sell it short) before releasing the (accurate) news. Actually, I'd be astonished if they didn't...
Being able to look at people you're talking to in real time at a distance is a common sense fantasy; it is quite another thing to figure out how to do it.
If the "how to do it" is important, then please explain why it is infringement if somebody figures out his own way of how to do it. You can't have it both ways. Typically those bogus patents don't event contain a description of the how to do part...
Someone having a general idea does not constitute prior art.
No problem with that. But then someone needs to explain those stupid judges that actually implementing something (using your own method) does not constitute infringement of somebody's general idea described in a patent.
It could very well make more sense economically to not have the resistors...
But what if they wouldn't find an electricity consumer on such short notice? Would then everything blow up?
It certainly is more productive to have someone use the power for _something_, even if it is electric resistive heating or inductive melting rather than just pump it into the atmosphere.
Nice sentiment, but I somehow doubt that the grid company cares more about the environment or humanity's overall good than about their own wallet. By the same reasoning, it is certainly more productive to give unsellable fruit or vegetables to the homeless rather than throwing it into the trash. But supermarkets doing this are still quite rare, and none are actually pay the homeless to take the fruit or vegetables off their hands...
It's a command-injection flaw, and any language that is able to call other programs through the shell would be vulnerable, and that includes both Python and Java.
Err, why is an image processing library doing network uploads anyway?
Reading comprehension, where are you?
The image processing library does just that, process images. In some cases, it processes images that have been uploaded by users to a web site (think Facebook photo albums), and if the user maliciously uploaded a booby-trapped photo, he can now make the website execute commands that were not intended by the site operator...
