VLC actually "plays" QuickTime (well, mostly MP4 these days?) files just fine.
The problem is creating the file. I work in a video game industry, and for things like trailers, sometimes clients/partners requires use of certain settings which assumes QuickTime is in use. I have tried some alternative software to do this task, but I have often observed them often creates non-satisfactory result, especially when it deals with non-PC consoles.
Having said that recently, software like blender, start to be able to produce fairly consistent/reliable results, it has been very messy to generate appropriately formatted results, and I can see there still may be edge cases where lack of access to QuickTime can be an issue. (Though, I'd say, 90% of them, it no longer is a problem.)
Signal looks interesting. It reminds me of the old standby app on Android, called TextSecure, which not just was a decent app for texting, but stashed the messages somewhere encrypted, as a secondary layer of protection.
Naturally, because Signal is the successor of TextSecure. They have merged functionalities of TextSecure and RedPhone into one, and that's Signal, to make it consistent with their iOS offering.
After looking at TensorFlow, I realized I'm not very prepared to use it, so I started taking Ander Ng's course and I'm in my 5th week now, and I feel like I'm getting a lot of it. I like the way he seems to have created this course to be fairly self-contained. Fors instance, although calculus shows frequently in the course, he is fairly open that he doesn't consider it to be a prerequisite and derived version of the equation is usually given whenever it comes up. Linear algebra is certainly required in the course, but the course provides nice refresher, and I actually learned it more firmly than I've gone through it previously in the past. (Maybe I'm more motivated than last time I went through it, though...)
Considering how bad those telephone auto attendant gets me, even with presumably a limited set of word selections to recognize, this simply seems to be very difficult problem to solve for Microsoft or anyone. (I do have a bit of Japanese accent myself.)
The funny thing is, when I actually spoke the phrase "show me my most at-risk opportunities" into Google, it actually got me right second time. (I don't have Windows 10, let alone in English locale, so I can't test it with Cortana.) Albeit, I had to speak very slowly. Maybe Satya had to do the same.
That makes SSL for
Well, technically, they do not really need to verify the ownership of
FWIW, I think libraries *should* host exit nodes. A very appropriate place for them as they have a long tradition of upholding privacy, including against government incursions. But it is also easier to get an exit node taken down through association with criminal acts. Though the people in TFA have it right: a city doesn't shut down roads simply because some people choose to drive drunk. Or the fact that they are used as escape routes by bank robbers. Or facilitate interstate crime by transporting stolen goods.
And does it even make any difference whether they run Tor exit relay or not to begin with, while library patrons using public wi-fi there can be as bad as Tor users in this respect? Libraries I've been so far didn't have any sort of captive portal, let alone authentication that limits access to library users. I don't know if that's the case with this particular library, though.
I haven't lost my mind -- it's backed up on tape somewhere.
