The pot is only a few degrees warmer than it was last year. I'm sure everything will work out.
If they get rid of COMMAND.COM, I'm going straight back to CP/M.
Spoken like a true, future focused IT professional willing to learn new things.
Or, you know... not.
Like Ashley Madison, I bet 99% of the users are male, and 90% of the women are fake accounts.
Hold on... it's not a perpetual motion machine. It takes energy to move... inefficiently. It's a reactionless drive (no matter expelled), but you shouldn't conflate that with perpetual motion.
You misunderstand. You often can't change the password on the telnet / ssh ports. Per Krebs:
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE
Several readers have pointed out that while advising IoT users to change the password via the device’s Web interface is a nice security precaution, it may or may not address the fundamental threat. That’s because Mirai spreads via communications services called “telnet” and “SSH,” which are command-line, text-based interfaces [...]
The trouble is, even if one changes the password on the device’s Web interface, the same default credentials may still allow remote users to log in to the device using telnet and/or SSH.
There was a big notice on my Google account, asking me permission to use my web browsing habits to server ads. I'm not sure how an Opt-In feature that interrupted my login to ask me specifically can, in any way, be described as 'quiet'.
Stephen Hawking's initial comments about AI and the future were taken out of context pretty badly. This is a much better quote that more accurately (I believe) summarizes the opinion many smart people have about AI: that it'll induce change, probably radical change, and change is only sometimes good... and it often gets worse before it gets better.
I like how Nintendo isn't even attempting to compete with the other two still. Totally different demographics, different use case, different technology.
It is a little depressing to see Nintendo release a console on a different cadence than the other two, and even two years later their hardware is less powerful. I guarantee this thing won't be running any 4k resolutions or VR framerates.
But that's not their target. They have always emphasized simpler games with unique gameplay. I think the trade off will be a bit easier to swallow this time, with the mobile-tablet form factor.
I'm concerned about those tiny-ass half-controllers though. Not sure how that'll play out with adult sized hands.
I wonder if the burn was shorter than planned because the ground came up and interrupted it... a likely possibility if the parachute released too early and snapped off. I've seen this happen before... in KSP.
This is equivalent to getting out a blacklight and looking for bloodstains. As far as I'm aware it does not require a warrant to check an individuals belongings for marks invisible to the naked eye.
While I am, in general, against the significant overreach of police powers without a corresponding increase in their accountability, I don't think this is an example of that. This is simple application of existing laws in a new context. I don't think playing a CD or cassette tape counts as 'search' either.
Because AT&T is a communications company... and it sells phones, and is an employer, it pays taxes, and it owns shares of other companies.
The FCC regulates AT&T's use of spectrum and communications.
The FTC regulates their sale of physical goods and other trade.
OSHA regulates their employee safety.
The IRS regulates their tax payments.
And the SEC regulates their purchase and sale of stocks.
Just because they are a telecommunication company doesn't mean that nobody but the FCC has any jurisdiction, ever.
I would have killed for a good free Alarm clock app years ago. I only had a desktop (next to my bed). No phone. No tablet. There are still millions of people who only have one device... no reason that a basic function like that shouldn't be included in the OS, so you don't have to resort to running media files via the scheduling system as a workaround.
That, and Windows 10 also runs on ultra-portal laptops and tablets, where this is more useful even to the richer first-worlders who have alternate devices they can use to alarm with.
Obviously she must be horrible at her job as Marketing Director, and thus was fired with cause...
Seriously though, I've never heard of them. What's the point of a job site nobody knows about?
In fact, Dropbox wrote and open-sourced a very nice password complexity tool, specifically encouraging smarter password complexity. No banned characters, no stupid requirements, just a relatively intelligent entropy estimator.
Intel CPUs are not defective, they just act that way. -- Henry Spencer
