Nah, that just points to the real solution- increasing the energy capture of the planet to provide more energy for future needs without fossil fuels.
Too bad it's by a climate change denier, because the mathematical proof of just how much effect man really has on global warming is fascinating.
Anything but a full blown holodeck isn't going to appeal to the masses.
Besides, you talk about 2 years for a Pixel... I talk about over 4 years supported. So, liar? More like realistic vision on longevity of devices.
There is a pretty easy middle ground: multiple signatures per identity. You could then have authority(s) vouching for your identity, plus other people too. This makes it much easier to catch a defector. "Hey, how come the Turkish intelligence service (a CA that almost everyone trusts on the web) just signed this guy's brand new key, but Verisign hasn't?" (or better: "how come the federal CA and this guy's state CA disagree?")
cheaper premium smartphones
It's not a premium smartphone, if you don't get updates... So, let me fix that for you: cheaper smartphones. That's it, explains it all...
Even Google and Samsung suck at keeping updates going for longer than six months, which is why the user who expects longevity and supports shells out for Apple. Sad to say, but I expect my smartphones to last four years. Two, new as my wifes phone on a subsidized contract (with flat everything), and then two more years as a hand-me-down for me with a much cheaper plan.
Disappeared.....they must have fixed it. Now if they could only fix the adboxes randomly wandering around the screen as I scroll.
Anybody else seeing the firehose on the main Stories Page in a sort of a translucent red color?
Or at least have the complexity of flying a Viper from 1978 Battlestar Galactica to switch into ludicrous mode.
"Speckman had a blood-alcohol level of 0.21"
hmm.. I don't think it was the acceleration that did it.
Why was the phone in Chile to begin with? Should not have been allowed to remove it from JPL premises
You simply can't have people not do "anything extra" while also being resistance to MitM. Part of HTTPS' success story is that it's easy enough to set up, but at the cost of being extremely vulnerable (by PGP standards) to MitM. So to anyone who knows how it works, it's "insecure" but people actually bother to use it, so it's about a trillion times more secure against totally passive attacks, than plaintext is. Thus, on average for all persons, the web is more secure than email.
PGP email needs some kind of "lame" mode (where people have keys but they're not carefully certified, maybe just signed by a robot CA), but easy enough that passive attacks are defeated. And it needs to be compatible with doing things right, so that people-who-care and people-who-don't-care get combined into the same network-effect.
It is, but I have yet to find a good Usenet provider to return to either.
