Comment Re:Why is this a problem? (Score 2) 395

I just changed the TPMS sensors on my girlfriend's shitty Cobalt. Each sensor was about 8 buck each. The reset process took about 5 minutes and was detailed in the owner's manual. Mounting the new sensors took considerably longer. Basically you're both waaaay off, but somewhere in between is about right.

1) Once again, you miss the point. Counterfeits are not supported. Genuine are. It doesn't matter if they are both horrible and both make the device explode. In one case, you have support. In the other, you do not. That point was made painfully clearly several times, yet still somehow you missed it. How? Jesus.

What, exactly, is a "secret email server"? If she was conducting official business, her address was out there and it would be pretty obvious to all involved that it was an external address. It doesn't matter if it's installed on a server farm or on the moon. It's almost like my grandmother and all her friends have shown up to discuss technology on Slashdot with us.

It seems to prove the exact opposite of your point. The phrase "non-provably secure" was chosen because that's what it is. "The system is not secure" is not the same as "The system should be treated as not secure". In one case, something has been proven. In the other, it has not. That is a huge, huge difference in terms of why we use different words to mean different things. Or you can just admit that you didn't understand what was originally written and got called out on calling *someone else* bad at English.

Comment Re:Removable storage that never gets removed (Score 1) 221

What's the point? Depends on if you're the company or the consumer. From the consumer's perspective, the difference between 16 GB and 32 GB in SD card form is only a few bucks. From the company's perspective, the difference between 16 GB and 32 GB of hard wired storage is hundreds of dollars.
