Yeah, well, it's classified. No sense revealing who we didn't go to war with because of successful data gathering if that would cause the war we avoided.
If he'd just stuck to revealing domestic data collection activities he might've been OK. But he had to reveal sources and methods used against targets outside the US and its allies...
And if you think Russia wasn't using those same sources and methods, well, I have a bridge to sell you. Nice view of Brooklyn. I bet he has "depression" and will eventually "commit suicide".
50/50 chance his next of kin get a bill for the bullet.
has an almost-self-driving capability when the lane departure assist is activated. But when driving on the freeway in heavy snow last winter, as soon as the optical system couldn't see the road because of the snow building up, all the automation shut down. Wth lots of visual and auditory warnings to let me know it was shutting down.
I imagine this is the same sort of thing. Auditory and visual warnings to let the driver know the system is switching to fully manual operation.
I know 2.5 million seems like a lot, but I visited what seems like a relatively small family-run bee operation on the weekend who claimed they had over 24 million bees. According to numbers I can dig up quickly, 2.5 million bees is about 50 colonies out of 2.5 million colonies in the US.
It's definitely a problem, but it's a bit more reasonable to talk about how many colonies were destroyed rather than number of bees, since that's how other statistics are tracked.
I run Debian Unstable in one VM, and Windows 10 in another.
The cell phone, which I use when away from the office and away from home, runs Android. And I have an iPad for (non-book) media consumption.
All of these technologies are pretty exciting, but there are a lot of disruptive things in there, particularly as it relates to displacing workers' jobs. The first item on the list is going to cause a huge shift as truck, taxis and bus drivers all start losing jobs en masse. None of them are likely to be happy about having to retrain for new, more difficult work (any more than buggy whip manufacturers were) and most will likely just be added to the millions of people disenfranchised with the new economy. This is a dangerous situation. What good is a grand new economy if there's nothing in it that I can see myself getting paid to do?
For a while I was wondering if we'd see a resurgence of co-operatives, where a community gets together and builds their own little economy, with a small farm and some skilled trades people. You'd at least be able to live a reasonably happy life. Unfortunately I can't see that happening. How would that community pay the ever-increasing land use fees such as tax, etc.? That land becomes more and more valuable to the people who have money, and they can just force the have-nots off the land.
She did the right thing and she's being punished for it. Does she have a GoFundMe page?
This kind of stuff seems to be rampant in business, just look at the Wolf of Wall Street, etc. Rampant corruption is a sign of a failing society. If you promise me a helmet for your $1500, that money had better be spent on developing the helmet, not hookers and blow. I understand that crowdfunding is risky, but it should only be risky because they're developing new technology, not because it's just one big lie. Failing to develop the technology is a legitimate risk, but blowing the money is criminal.
that Tor is a US Government supported project, right? The DoS is a big supporter.
...is a notebook with usernames and passwords written down in it. Primarily because any system I use has to work on Linux, Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android.
I don't actually write down the password, but a description of it. "Usual, first letter cap, +9*3, without old First Sergeant's name" type of thing.
