I guess you don't do video.
With PCI slots room for multiple video cards and several hard drive bays. You know, a proper workstation.
Ditch the grand experiment of the trash can Mac and give me a new workstation-class case.
The Aviator or something. He was stopped by The Flash when trying to fly a remote controlled plane full of dynamite into Central City Hal.
Yahoo never recovered from Google. (Who has?) This makes all of their side bets into creating a social media network out of Flickr, Tumblr starting with their purchase of EGroups ten or more years ago so interesting. They had enough stuff to make a critical mass of a social media platform but never had the vision to unify those disparate products into one single space.
My guess is that there were a layer of vice presidents who each wanted to keep their own fifedoms and years of low level resistance prevented the 'Okay, let's turn this all into a single experience for the user'. They had a broad demographic spread over their different products but failed to reach ignition.
They're doing business in a few dozen countries. That means dealing with communications regulatory and tax collection agencies in all those places. With hundreds of millions of users, keeping all of those plates spinning does take a certain amount of work.
I'm very sorry you did not take security into account to the degree that you should have, and probably did no QA, but the facts are you have to in order to establish the credibility of your system and its data. Everyone else has to.
I am thinking of that recent Twitter AI that turned into a bigot in less than a day because -- lo and behold -- GIGO. If the output must be that all films must look like the demographic national survey rather than how people tend to cluster, you could end up with no end of weird conclusions and data skews. For example, a film with a minority person in a wheel chair in a leadership role may skew the data more than a gay man. Moreover, let us say for instance, the first film is crap and the second one is good, but because he's beaten up as the film's about gay bashing, then might the latter score worse because he's a portrayed as a victim?
Baker had a varied career that included lots of musical theatre and the circus as well as heaps of roles in other productions. I bet he had a million stories to tell.
Who could have imagined that because off the shelf analogue radio controls were so crappy in the 1970s and a series of accidental meetings, it was easier to hire him to steer the inside of the R2D2 Prop. That he was short made him in the Star Wars promotion circuit with kids and so forth.
What a life.
From what I've read, his counterpart Daniels is a 'difficult' personality and the two didn't get along. And from what I've read of that relationship, Baker towered in stature over Daniels as a person.
Thanks for being part of my childhood.
I realize that this is Slashdot and the centre of gravity for discussion is technology but I really think that storms at sea, fire, mislabeled volatile cargo and other more mundane issues are more likely to affect ships great and small than cyber attacks.
It's tempting to dismiss this as him being wrong by orders of magnitude and then talking down our noses at him by assuming we need to explain what an order of magnitude is, or that he's adopting this stance for transparent political reasons, but let's assume for the moment that he's telling the truth. What would he have to know for that statement to be true?
Have you all forgotten the Snowden revelations yet? How it became known that the US grabbed cell phone encryption standards before the ink was dry on them, how they tapped the lines between Google data centres. If the operational tools for creating for encryption are compromised or at least weakened, it may well be that they have visibility into source code in a lot of industries as well as communications, which is as good *if not better*.
