* Human Neuron: Cannot be exposed to deep space radiation. Will die. Cannot manage extreme G-force. Learning new skills take ages.
* Chip: Can be shielded to deep space radiation. Will not die. Deep space advanced robotics applications. Can take extreme G-force. Can be weaponised. Could create medical robotics with "plugins" for each medical discipline.

I would create multiple usernames/passwords that are allowed to unlock the system. E.g. Multi login. They keystore that secures the encryption on the device would then have to be doubly encrypted with two seperate encryption keys on the device using a public key of the 2nd user available on iCloud. The second encrypted store could be uploaded to iCloud and only decoded by that 3rd party who would then have access to decrypt the duplicated information.

You could do PK key exchange via bluetooth or something more personal to prevent against MITM attacks.

The device would then need a time delay to prevent that designated user from logging onto your phone through casual day to day usage. The device should only be accessable 30 days after not being used and would require the user to access iCloud to fetch and decrypt the store. The device would still be protected by encryption but may be decrypted by a designated person(s) so long as the designated person is nominated upfront.

Surely, according to the current theories, the "big bang" would be similar to just a "big supernova" in which heavy elements and very heavy elements are created. If the "big bang" fractured inconsistently, it is likely that it is not unreasonable that suretly after the "big bang" there would be many dense stars that go super-nova. Why they dont immediately fall back into into "black holes", all things considering, is another wonder

So much to learn... too many "theories".

Comment Dental Records? (Score 1) 100

They might as well generate his dental work, or diagnosis and cross reference the likely cancer treatments he is likely to have with purchases of any vitamin supplements he may require as a result of genetic deficiencies.

Whats that.. four datasets.... Credit Card History, Dental History, Medical History, Facebook photo. Identify likely diagnoses and filter. Obviously the older you are the easier it is to trace you since you are likely to have certain genetic risk become issues. A few good generic markers and you'll cut it down to a few thousand people.

Comment Airgap (Score 1) 378

Just close the airgap. Split the atm into 3 distinct containers with separate air sections. The electronics and wires can move between the walls. The card tray and mechanism can be separated with an air vent back into the lobby. The dispenser tray can vent to the lobby and have money dropped into it and out of it in an air tight seal.

Problem solved. It's probably possible to retro fit to existing enclosures with a bit I'd thought work.

Comment All a crock of sh... (Score 1) 120

I've given this capability a long and hard thought. This interception only works during an economic war and does nothing during a real war. Once a real war kicks off on any global scale, these types of interception capabilities get turned off because countries will sever certain cables and links.

Companies that are hosted in the cloud will get disconnected destroying them in hours.

That seams reasonable advantage. If it could take me from 60K tps to 100K tps per blade its a no-brainer. I doubt its going to allow office/home application to run any noticeably quicker but with a blade centre of 16 blades, I'll want to get my monies worth before needing to expand.
