Their goal is to index all the worlds information. So basically the whole internet is their competition in some form.
With -w option.
That's a nice counter example. The OS could have a small options button for odd stuff like that. Choosing barcode scanner would display a barcode that a reader could read and match with its output. Not sure what other oddball stuff masquerades as a keyboard though.
Like a device pairing prompt.
The OS should display a pin on the screen and require the user to enter it. Fails disable input from it.
It's actually quite reasonable and correct to be absolutely for or against certain things... rape for instance. "Oh just this one time" doesn't justify anything whatsoever, nor do polite words minimize the offense.
FBI is saying to Apple "Just the tip baby, I swear".
Send the warrant to the Vatican.... Then arrest you know who.
This brings new meaning to the term "mobile streaming platform".
That's awesome, I'm going to generate myself a schizophrenic tulpa with PTSD.
I don't think the entire concept being fought over is some brand new idea, it's a classic idea with the obligatory "with a computer".
So how has this been handled in the past? If you buy a brand new top of the line "uncrackable" vault say for a bank or casino in Vegas... and refuse to open it for police, they just... make do on their own right? Spend a few days or weeks with hammers, chisels and drills until it's open?
Nobody makes the vault company drop by and show you the secret access trick, am I right?
Second you ignored my comment about the personality cult. Those are functionally identical to religion and anyone not worshipping the word of Mao did not fare terribly well during the cultural revolution or the great leap forward.

In my opinion nationalism is the most dangerous form of fanaticism. It pulls in both atheistic and religious people in equal numbers. The brainwashing starts early in childhood. People are taught "us vs them" and will happily offer their lives for the cause. Religion has caused many wars but they couldn't fill their armies without nationalism blinding both sides. It's really a cancer.
No change in your pain perception?
Looks like a fun way to get Amazon to crank call people for you. That's s really weird way for them to get someone on the phone.
Sounds like you need to talk to some heroin users and get good tips on managing that stuff.
