Comment So, it's not only the Russians that hack, huh! (Score 2) 108

Prior to this, I'd have thought America and especially its government agencies do not hack.

I guess I was wrong. What troubles me is that the media only talked about the Russians, yet the act was taking place in our backyard!

Question: Will the media put both the left and right to task?

Comment They forgot to add this... (Score 1) 130

Laser weapons, which complement traditional kinetic weapons in the battlefield, will one day protect against threats such as "swarms of drones" or a flurry of rockets and mortars...

That is if their path can be correctly predicted. Some of these missiles/projectiles, especially from Russia, have random flight paths & no one is immune to them I am afraid.

Comment Why not right away? (Score 1) 168

"We're committed to providing a better ads experience for users online. As part of that, we've decided to stop supporting 30-second unskippable ads as of 2018 and focus instead on formats that work well for both users and advertisers,"

I'd like to know why they do not implement this right away. It cannot be because they do not know what works well well for both users and advertisers now.

Comment Snowden shouldn't worry...we're a democracy (Score 1) 294

That said, I should add that the USA isn't like those other countries that do things outside the law.

Snowden should rest assured that all will be just fine.

I must add that sources like these remind me of events leading to how USA handled matters related to Saddam's "weapons of mass destruction."

We all know how that went, don't we?
