>You know, the entire Gamergate movement was predicated on the notion that feminists had no business reviewing games that were geared towards men. "Let them make their own games" was the rallying cry.

That is so far from the truth that even a map would not help.

Gamergate as said by another was corruption in game reviews. It was discovered that someone reviewing a game had a personal relationship with said woman which was not disclosed. It got even worse when game "journalists" banded together to twist the truth and outright lie about what was going on, treating the people who would be into games or read their reviews like trash.

Here I go into this thinking he said that so there be a reason to make better ways to encrypt data and force better security. Although heck John Macafee went and explained how the FBI could and does hack into other phones which does not involve forcing phone security to take a shit. This is not about safety this is about power to spy on people.

And to Adi Shamir...TURN IN YOUR GEEK CARD!! You clearly are a moron who does not care anymore.

What I don't get is why is the original OS/settings not stored in some read only memory where say the OS gets a virus the user would then be given an option to restore the software to factory and then fix it from there. Sure it is not the most ideal of soultions, but it is still a good one that a virus would not likely be able to destroy.

its 2015 FFS why is that not a thing for any piece of tech with an OS?
