Comment Re:This almost makes me want to move to Canada... (Score 1) 141

Cancer treatments in Canada are old though. No immunotherapy or such, still the old rays bombardments and old chemo therapies. And new meds that target the damaged cells more accurately and that are already approved in europe and USA are not approved here only because of the cost. And even if treatments start within 3 weeks of diagnosis, what you forgot to mention, and what any Canadian knows all too well, is that it can take as much as 2 years, waiting on a list, before you can see the specialist that will give the final diagnosis and green light any treatment, when it's not too late at that time.

Submission + - Stealthy, tricky to remove rootkit targets Linux systems on ARM and x86 (pcworld.com)

Kinwolf writes: Security researchers have identified a new family of Linux rootkits that, despite running from user mode, can be hard to detect and remove. Called Umbreon, after a Pokémon character that hides in the darkness, the rootkit has been in development since early 2015, runs from user mode but hijacks libc system calls. According to malware researchers from antivirus firm Trend Micro, Umbreon is a so-called ring 3 rootkit, meaning that it runs from user mode and doesn't need kernel privileges. Despite this apparent limitation, it is quite capable of hiding itself and persisting on the system.

I took a look and I can't believe companies still waste thousands of dollars on "concepts" logos like this. All but one gave me nausea so much they looked bad/dated(especially no2) and the only one that didn't isn't worth the thousands of dollars they surely paid for it, because, let's face it, we could all have come up with it (Mozi//a) Stick with your current one, none of those are better IMO

People lie now in survey. They say what is PC, but always think and do the contrary. If they'd really think there are too many smartphones released every year, they'd stop changing phone every 6 months. I'm sure Samsung would stop releasing 35 versions of it's Galaxy line if people would simply, you know, stop buying them when their previous phone is still as good.

Comment It changed us? (Score 1) 367

What about those who don't even own one?(and never will) Are we "changed" too? And it's stupid to combine all the iPhones versions into one statistic. If we do that, I'm pretty sure every journal sold more than 1 billions editions of their papers over time.
