Does not matter, The morons in Congress will call it a terrorist action and put him in Gitmo for 60 years.
This is the problem when laws are passed by dimwits that can barely tie their shoes in the morning, let alone understand something as complex as a computer or twitter.
Here int he USA we have a major problem. WE allow the very uneducated to be the ruling class, this causes tons of laws that are absurd and applied badly.
Currently on linux, modern AMD cards have the "best-of-both-world" driver support.
Nvidia currently only produce closed-source drivers.
(Nouveau is exclusively the work of reverse engineering. Recieving nearly no support from Nvidia, except for the occasional patch to enable modesetting)
AMD provides a hybrid stack:
- they develop an kernel module (amdgpu) which is available up-stream. (i.e.: new versions of the kernel feature it out of the box).
above this, you have two choices:
- AMDGPU-Pro, the closed source drivers (which are the modern day equivalent of the user-space portion of Catalyst).
Nowadays, they seem pretty stable, run games without bugs, and because they require a module which is already in mainstream kernel, they do work even with the latest kernel update. (unlike nvidia's driver which need the nvidia.ko some adaptation in case of variation of the kernel API).
- RadeonSI, the opensource back-end to the Mesa driver.
These are devloped by people of whom some are on AMD's payroll (i.e.: AMD doesn't only provide information, but even salaries for opensource development)
With the Polaris, the driver was available at release day, and has a decent performance compared to the closed source one, and runs lots of games.
That's quite some achievement compared with the early "fglrx" that was buggy as hell, and that's quite some engagement for the opensource community.
As a Linux user, I actually like more the ADM driver situation.
iOS also only permits five Touch ID unlock attempts before the passcode is required, so smart criminals would either register their little finger and use up those attempts with other fingers.
So in this case, where a judge compels a suspect to unlock his phone using his fingerprint, and he blocks the phone with 5 bogus attempts, can he be held in contempt of court? Or he could claim that the phone didn't recognize his fingers because of sweaty hands.
You have to use a UNIQUE SALT for every password and then have a WORK FACTOR of some large number (use the bcrypt library).
Yup, a slow and hard to brute force hash would have been good (other example: PBKDF2, Scrypt and the latest competition winner Argon2)
Saddly people are still using SHA-1 as a password hash (a hash function designed purposedly to be fast and simple, which has the advantage of being able to be useful even on small hardware like smart cards - but is easy to brute force on dedicated hardware (GPU, FPGA) as proven by bitcoin's proof-of-work system, and it there a bad solution for *password* hashing)
Public key based authentication is even better, but I have it seen rarely used outside of the professional word.
Two-factor is another alternative, and at least that one is seeing come consumer usage...
Somebody fakes my eyescan successfuly once, it loses all future use to me
That's the real kicker. Imagine a password written on a yellow sticky, kept in your wallet. A password that is thus easily stolen, lost or duplicated. Now imagine that you cannot change that password, ever.
Are we recycling old stories now? This has appeared on Slashdot no less than 6 times by now.
"There are no low end devices, no $150 ones don't count."
The Pebble does count and is a fantastic smartwatch that is the most refined and the only one with a good battery life.
You should check out the oldest smartwatch maker and actually use their devices before you claim they dont count.
it's because pebble's numbers decimate all the others combined.
No they wont and in reality they dont. you have been able to buy GSM watch phones for over 5 years now all over ebay and other places from china makers. They just do not sell because they sound like shit and have battery times measured in minutes. I had one, the latest china iteration of one and it's battery life sucked, it's OS sucked, it's audio quality and call quality sucked. oh and you cant change the band as the antennas are in that.
smartwatch+phone+bt headset is my killer mix and it works fantastically. glance at watch, press answer, talk to person on my headset. Best of all worlds.
The Nike and reebok problem..
They sell $3.95 shoes for $100 or more. It's still low grade china made junk but with a premium price.
It's just like what Ebay has been for over a decade now. You can not be sure you are buying anything that is real. I used to use the "prime" as a real item indicator, but even thouse are now turning out to be china junk sold as real with a username that even looks real.
"SandiskMemory" is NOT Sandisk... in fact Sandisk does not have a direct amazon store so anyone using the seller name SanDisk is selling china fake junk.
Amazon refuses to fix this because they are making mad profit off of it.
