Comment Re:Does anyone care what Trump thinks? (Score -1, Flamebait) 527

The last I'd heard, news fact-checking organizations were reporting that he told the truth 15% of the time. Why would I ever care what the opinion of someone like was?

And don't tell me "because he's going to be president". The people of the United States are still smarter than that.

Oh fuck off Bruce. You've been on and on about shit like this for ages. Those "fact checking" organizations are all left leaning shit bag organizations and you fucking know it. You'll happily support the admitted felon Hillary and her criminal organization though right? Fuck you

He will change his mind 15 times, not even remember what his position was, and probably end up losing the election anyway. Even if he wins the election, we will be too busy dealing with WW3 to care about internet oversight.

Be afraid of anyone that wont change their mind. Dream on about losing the election though, you're clearly just a Hillary shill.

I tried plasma 5 and it's just so bug ridden I can't use it as a daily driver. I liked gnome 3.20 on fedora but I started having issues with the system not recognizing my keyboard after waking from sleep. Ultimately I said fuck it, DE's on Linux are a fucking joke right now so I just use a windows 10 box and a bash prompt.

Khan can eat a dick. That worthless piece of shit told us to get used to terror attacks as the new normal. Think immigrants shouldn't assimilate and has the fucking audacity to tell people who voted peacefully and democratically they are racists and islamaphobes. Someone needs to send this turd packing and quick. The once great city of London is now a shit hole of third world proportions.

Comment Re:Is anyone really surprised? (Score 1) 66

Is anyone REALLY surprised that the FBI was wrong? Government doesn't attract top-tier talent. Never has, never will. When your hiring practices, policies, procedures, compensation and benefits are all at the bottom of the barrel, well... that's what you get. The bottom of the barrel.

I agree on policy and procedure but they have the best benefits and compensation I have ever seen. My aunt ran the Houston office of the FBI for years. She was able to retire at age 50 with a full sic figure a year pension that will last her the rest of her life. Everyone on that side of the family has lived into their 90's so do the math with that.

I don't go out and about without my wallet, so my credit card is always on me. Using an app isn't any more convenient, its less so.

It's not about convenience. It's about security. The apps are far superior from a security perspective. Leave your card locked up at home so no one gets it when they steal your wallet.

With a sentence like this, I can safely conclude you don't know squat about security. And I'm sure I can make the same assumption about the whole lot of slashdot users given how your post has been rated as insightful.

I mean, how the fuck is a mobile app more secure than a CC. Sure you can steal my CC, but I can hack your phone without stealing it. This is no hyperbole. Phones bleed info like mofos. Which is why I don't use any banking or transaction apps on them.

And with the new EVM cards (the chip-and-pin kind), fraud is even harder, leaving no option but to steal, to physically acquire your card (which is still a hard proposition to use fraudulently without a PIN.)

None of those airgaps exist with phone apps. There is no physical barrier, no air gap to speak of. Bleeding readable signals like crazy. And you call these the more secure options?

Truly, WTF?

Perhaps your dumb ass should read about how the tech behind apple pay actually works before spouting off your ignorant mouth? Just a thought dipshit.

First, they are massively overstating Facebooks "power" and even more so Zuckerbergs. They can post the picture on their governments websites if they want to protest. I would recommend against it personally as it looks more like child porn than anything else.

Lastly, Facebooks site, Facebooks rules. They are welcome to ditch the internet ghettos if they want. Bitching that life in the ghetto sucks really accomplishes nothing.
