I tried the DIRECTV NOW for the free 7 day trial.
I wouldn't switch to DirectvNOW due to:
1. No built in DVR capability (helps skip commercials).
2. On some days,it would periodically keep asking me to input my password, like it lost it somehow.
The interface was pretty slick, and the deal they had was pretty good, I got to see AXS and Velocity channels I lost when I cut the cord to ATT Uverse.
But it just isn't ready for primetime to me...glitchy and no DVR yet.
I may look again when they add DVR to the service, but who knows when that will be.
Despite CNN's near-invitation to do so?
Fine, let's go by area. Then it would be Russia.
Whew. I guess the Germans are finally off the hook now that they're basically like everyone else.
(Read it as an unordered bullet list with
Why is it not available in more public places?
Considering how often it was "redecorated" by passing Klingons, Jem'Hadar and other minor and major catastrophes, and considering that it was always back in business an episode later, he couldn't be that bad a businessman...
Find a way to convince me to actually believe that they complied.
Why would FB acquire WA? Because they really loved to have a messenger service in the portfolio but without any interest in leeching the data? C'mon.
Real security people don't expose themselves to the public, much less talk to the press.
Are you kidding? Nobody listens to you if your name doesn't ring bells. Publish or perish IS pretty much what makes or breaks your career as a security expert these days. You think any of them have a problem getting a speaker slot at any security conference if they so please? Or get any contract they'd want?
It's sad, but yes, security has become a spectacle. Welcome to the show, watch our CSI-esque presentation of how we penetrate your defenses with style...
Yes, but even in the area of science you'll notice that who says something still has some meaning.
If I say that at the center of every black hole there is a little pink teapot, you'll call me a crackpot and be done with it.
If Stephen Hawking made this claim, I bet you would want to know his reasoning.
At the very least this meant for me that I would want to see why Bruce considers it a non-issue.
Dude, take a look at what's happening here.
The "security hole" in question here is basically the same deal as you have with every other service where you can transfer your service to a new device. You know, you buy a new phone, then want to continue using your IM or whatever on the new phone... but with the new phone you'd also get to negotiate new encryption keys. And that means that all messages still in the queue would be lost, because they have been encrypted with your old key.
That's the whole "exploit" here.
There's plenty of reasons to distrust WhatsApp and even more reasons to avoid it like the plague, not the least of which being that it hands all data over to FB despite first claiming and vowing that it would never do that.
If THIS is your reason to distrust WhatsApp, you have bigger problems.
Typically Chinese, they can't come up with anything themselves, all they can is copy our successful products!
I actually started going out of my way to ask around among people that I run into (at meetings, conferences, etc) whether they want slimmer phones. Even the markedroids didn't give a shit.
Who the hell wants those phones thinner? Nobody I know cares. Yes, we don't want the inch-thick bricks from the 1990, no doubt about this, but phones have been "thin enough" for well over 5 years now.
I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
