From a security standpoint you shouldn't be using antivirus software for real-time scanning. These issues have been known for years and keep occurring ( https://www.blackhat.com/prese...
). Antivirus vendors have been screwing up too often - false positives (blacklisting OS files etc), being exploitable (like this), being unstable, using too much resources.
Real time AV scanning should only be used by people who are incompetent enough to screw up their own systems (or let malware do it) more often than a AV company would. If you know what you are doing you wouldn't be using real-time AV scanning. You'd only scan certain stuff using sacrificial machines and more as a precaution and additional layer of defence.
So when are we going to get this: https://threatpost.com/ibm-unv...
Shared key WPA2 means that anyone who knows the shared key can decrypt other people's traffic if they managed to sniff the 4-way handshake messages:
It's true using WiFi means you still have to trust the entity providing it, but that's the same with a wired network or using an ISP.
To those who say "use VPNs" I'd say:
1) Defense in depth
2) that's a different layer - just because you can workaround a broken layer doesn't mean the broken layer isn't broken. The fact is the layer already has encryption but it has a broken implementation which can be improved.
Actually what those webpages would want is your location, and they don't need GPS for that.
Have you ever seen a browser prompt asking you for permission to share your location? If you allow it, the browser will figure it out (often with the help of Google if it's Firefox/Chrome) and then send the location to the page.
In many populated areas all is needed is WiFi to get 50m accuracy of your location. If there's no WiFi, a guess will be made, sometimes the guess isn't far off, sometimes it is.
Check out an implementation here:
(allow the share location request if you are brave and willing to test it out). For best results use a laptop with WiFi enabled.
From internal testing, WiFi location can be quite accurate AND more importantly it often can work where GPS doesn't - e.g. inside a mall. Google presumably populates and updates their DB with the help of android phones (that have stuck to the default of "high accuracy") and their streetview vehicles.
Microsoft probably is doing a similar thing but they don't have quite as many phones out there.
Intelligence is definitely genetic and heritable, but many of those genes might not solely be for raw intelligence.
After all to do OK in many education systems (e.g. complete the course) you often have to be able to sit down for hours without causing problems for yourself or to others around you. And you often have to be able to handle authority well even if that authority is wrong
I'm pretty sure many of you know people who completed schooling and yet would do worse than a crow in solving some puzzles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
What I find interesting is a crow has a brain the size of a walnut and seems more intelligent that animals with much larger brains. Brains cost a fair bit more to keep around than just fat, so why do many animals have much bigger brains despite being stupider and not having longer lifespans? Redundancy?
Huh but that Fairphone also has a fused display right? What's the difference between that and the LG's fused display stuff?
The LCD and cover glass are fused, simplifying removal, but significantly increasing the cost of replacement.
The fused display assembly will need to be replaced if the LCD or glass breaks, increasing costs.
So either the Fairphone should be downgraded to a 9/10 or the LG should be upgraded to a 9/10.
