Your fingerprints absolutely can be evidence against you. That's not even a question.
... as someone who knows the truth
if users desperately need to run 32-bit legacy applications, the'll have to do so in containers or virtual machines.
The only reason why I install 32-bit stuff on my Linux machine is that it is needed when compiling VirtualBox from source code.
The British representatives to the EU are unelected
Nigel Farage is unelected?
a 29 year old decided that he knew better than the hundreds of elected officials that we the people appointed to make these sorts of decisions on our behalf.
He reported the problems to his superiors and was ignored. Are you suggesting he should go to a governor or a congressman? Like "hello, I'm a NSA analyst and I'd like to chat with you about NSA illegally spying on everyone in US. When and where would that suit you?"
he leaks EVERYTHING, to foreign media.
So he should have leaked only something? Greenwald is an American and they met in New York.
he runs away to a country that stands diametrically opposed to every human right he claims to champion.
There isn't a wide range of countries to choose from. He chose the country that respected his rights. Which, sadly, is not US.
There's a reason that it makes sense to form groups (...) to allow lots of people to pool their resources and speak with one voice when it suits them to do so.
I have a question: how many people are represented by the lobbyist? My guess is that they will fit into one room. Are you saying that if I grab the same number of friends at the local pub, then I have the same chances?
It's their platform. If they want to change it up, start charging or whatever, that's their right. People sure do whine a lot in 2016.
While TFS talks mainly about replacing "free" with "paid for", there is also change of the web platform. For the worse. Terribly.
The old platform that is being phased out was lightweight, fast, compact, worked everywhere. The new platform is bloated (the main page fails to load on my tablet with 1GB of RAM), slow and has so many flaws, that the discussion threads in the Mentor forum (where are participating only active, experienced students hand picked by coursera) have hundreds of posts - all pointing out broken features, removed useful features with no replacement, browser incompatibilities, lack of feedback/support, etc. etc.
That's still not everything. The number of courses grew during last year tenfold. There were two girls communicating with Mentors in the discussion forum - one of them left recently and they are looking for replacement. The new courses flowing in have numerous flaws in video/audio quality, grading, video subtitles, course materials
I did over 20 courses. Some of them sufficient as light intro to the topic, some of them were really excellent (e.g. on Algorithms by Tim Roughgarden, Cryptography by Dan Boneh - both from Stanford University). I'm saddened to see the decline.
Car analogy does not cut it. Imagine Slashdot classic vs Slashdot 2.0, but raised to 3rd power and managed by Elop and no whisplash
