I'd argue that RT is about as bad as the others but generally uses higher register language than the far right press. A big mistake may be to read all believing the truth lies somewhere in the aggregate, when frequently they are all just not true.
And yes, I am aware of the irony of citing a news source.

That really depends on how you define AI. If you want to define AI as purely something that can hold a realistic conversation with you then no, it's not. However if you agree that a machine that demonstrating the ability to learn from examples then I'm sure many would argue this is a form of AI, but that's why why careful people describe it as machine learning instead. Just like intelligent search was often called AI in the past by the press.

Does Razer still require users to make accounts and login to a remote server to use drivers and software for their peripherals?

Yes they do if you want the full functionality of the devices

if the laptop has any information about him or his accounts or logins, then the theft of the laptop could lead to identity theft and fraud. Dude didn't encrypt, so he's not a computer expert, so he's probably employed under false precincts, and should be fired.

it's false PRETENCES not precincts..
you are here under the false pretence you know what words mean ;)

Fuji's T-grain emulsion is superior to kodak.. as someone who has his City and Guilds(yeah.. that old) and who's first job was in photography... fuji t-grain FTW!

But it's color was garish.

one man's garish is another man's vivid.
for work with long focal length and tele-convertors I'd take t-grain over kodak film any day of the week bud ;) Also if you used their 600 film and uprated it to 3200 , popped on a soft focus filter and processed it as 3200 you got pastel portraits the easy way.. they were quite popular in the 80's

i remember when ilford fp400 was xp400! I worked at a govt Research place in Scotland and we had a GREAT set up and i got spoiled for kit between Nikon f3's, hassleblad's for medium format and the classic 5x4 tech cameras. With our studio being part of the maintainance building we had our own custom studio kit.
Then I joined the army as a photographer... the kit at the Joint School of [photography(Now the Defence School of Photography) at RAF Cosford was erm.. pretty fucking basic and the first month they issues you something s;lightly better than a box brownie.. i shit you not! Second month you got a nikon f3 and hassleblads cm550's again. I LOVED darkroom work. i am no setting up a home darkroom. It's just getting hold of a decent colour enlarger and a big ass black out blind for the kitchen and i'm sorted!

MDMA is a gateway drug, and we shouldn't be risking addiction by patients who already have mental health issues.

While we thank the DEA for their view on this sensitive matter; And no doubt you have similar views on Morphine. Sadly your 'ain't gonna have no hippie scientists givin' kids drugs' attitude belies the fact you clearly have no concept of how utterly devastating a life crippled with PTSD can be.

You and your ilk are basically everything that's wrong with knee-jerk legislators across the western world.

true :-(

As well as the obvoius losses, it's arguable there are advantages there to be had with nearly free speech.
For example if someone slanders you in a newspaper, the story is legally presumed to be false unless proven otherwise; So if you took them to court and they failed to prove the truth of it, they are liable for damages. It's in some ways an extension of innocent until proven guilty.

I must stress I'm not implying this is better or worse, just expanding a little on the details.
