Unfortunately it breaks Twitch entirely. You can't start a video without autoplay enabled.
Put those together and this is a very limited way to "must do something" that so many people have been calling for. It also sent a message to North Korea and China. Hopefully nothing more comes of it.
Agreed. I want the US to have nothing else to do with Syria. But using chemical weapons is simply too awful and too horrific to ignore. We can't stop parties from making or using the things, but we can damned well make sure there are painful consequences to doing so.
Personally, I find it implausible that Assad ordered a chemical attack now.
If not Assad, then who? The Russians aren't this stupid.
So potentially a stupid question here, but given that we have a severe shortage of IP addresses due to exhaustion of the IPv4 space, how are all of these devices getting publicly addressable IP addresses to allow an incoming connection in the first place? If they're behind a NAT they should be naturally firewalled, otherwise who has the spare IPs to hand out to crappy little IoT devices?
In all fairness to the, uh, interesting people doing this, they're not completely off their rockers. Licking consoles was a thing before social media even existed.
A then-unknown Jessica Chobot (who these days hosts shows for Nerdist) basically started the whole thing by licking a PSP as a gag photo in 2005. Since then, someone, somewhere (usually Chobot, it feels like) licks a launch console.
The only novel change here is people licking the cartridge instead of the console, and that's due to the aforementioned use of a bittering agent. Maybe Nintendo got it wrong here and needs to go into licking controls instead of motion controls...
Exactly. If we want more Flashes and more Silverlights, by all means, fight against DRM in the browser. I, for one, do not. I will choose the lesser evil. We're going to need it until we "fix" copyright law, which could take literally forever.
One political revolution will end it pretty quickly. For some reason the US thinks they are immune to such a change, even when they see it happening all around them.
But people are also paying attention to Uber right now. If you're Google now is a good time to take a shot at Uber, when they're too distracted to fight back. And if you're a reporter your Uber story is going to get a lot more traction, so it's time to start digging.
You're not wrong; there's definitely a bit of blood in the water.
However Uber is unique in that they're managing to find new and exciting ways to fuck up, from the way they treat their drivers to how they interact with governments.
To use the GP's example, at least Oracle is consistently evil: you know what they're going to do from the start. But with Uber it's a new surprise each week!
Correct if I am wrong, but as I understand it the patent office just rubber stamps any patent application as long as all the eyes are crossed and tees are dotted. It's up to any other party to prove that the patent should not have been granted. Which is where all the expensive lawyers come in, which is why patents have no purpose except for huge companies to fuck with each other.
If it truly was an accident and everyone was acting in good faith
It wasn't in good faith, hence the reason he was found guilty of reckless endangerment. Negligence is the charge for "good faith". Reckless means that the accused knew it was dangerous to others and did it anyhow, thereby disregarding the safety of others.
No, no they're not. Simple as that. The delay announcements should start around September.
Looks like FAN company/corporate discounts will no longer be applied to these new plans. This was the only thing keeping them competitive w/ T-Mobile pricing.
Bear in mind that AT&T isn't trying to be competitive with T-Mobile. They're trying to be competitive with Verizon. T-Mo stings in the cities, but it's Verizon that can threaten AT&T's national footprint.
The parent is correct. Micro Center typically sells CPUs at a discount. It's one of the great things about living near one. But their prices are not representative of Intel's normal MSRPs, and importantly, what you'll pay for their products everywhere else.
But perhaps creating two accounts, one in wheel and the other not, and doing work other than software installation as the user not in wheel would make it harder to social-engineer users into elevating.
I've read TFA twice now and I still can't figure out if that's what the authors are trying to suggest, or something else entirely.
The entire point of UAC/sudo is to allow users to run in a standard context for day-to-day activities, and to quickly elevate certain applications/actions when it's required. Unless something has gone terribly wrong here, applications running un-elevated under an admin-capable UAC account have no more rights than an application running on a non-admin-capable account in the first place. Until elevation takes place, it's for all practical purposes a non-admin account.
So what is TFA trying to suggest, and what is their metric? Are they saying UAC is broken and applications are trivially executing privilege escalation attacks? (And if so, how are standard accounts not affected?) Or are they just saying that since users can escalate applications, the OS automatically counts as vulnerable to the attack? In other words, is the argument that we should be doing away with UAC/sudo?
It's nice to have competition in the marketplace; I don't think things would be nearly as good with just HTC or Oculus.
However the Rift and Vive are not perfect substitutes. The Vive Lighthouse system is fantastic for room-scale, but (relatively speaking) a pain in the ass to install if all you want to do is sit in a chair. And the lenses HTC uses induce a lot of chromatic aberration, which really does a number on text. So having either the Rift or the Vive pulled off the market would be a notable loss.
The rational and intelligent states of Illinois, California, and New York are doing what they can to limit the federal insanity. Please give them whatever support you can.
If you think the system is working, ask someone who's waiting for a prompt.
