Comment Is edge changing an actual issue? (Score 2) 202

I use windows 10 on a couple of computers all set with chrome as the default and have never had an issue with edge somehow being my default. The only time I ever see edge is because I do use one web site that only works with it and if click on some of the default tiles it uses edge but then it covers up and remove much of the UI for the purpose of display just that tile info that you would not recognize it as a regular browser.

Comment Media is the problem and summary shows why. (Score 1) 349

What trump said was correct, from his view you could see what he said and could make the guess of 1 million, you can see that from the pictures taken from the area he was standing looking at the crowd. Him sending out his press secretary to make those comments on saturday were just plain stupid, wrong and lieing.
However the media is at fault for the way they are thought of, they start by picking on statement of "from what I could see, and it looked like" and saying that is a lie; easy to make the case of it being wrong probably not a lie. When during the campaign the previous presidency they would happily accept any statement as the truth from the democrats and continue to do so. If the media had taken a neutral standpoint and done the job of reporting then they could of easily roasted the press secretary for that briefing on saturday and could of made the push to have him replaced and might of had some support from anywhere but the minority.
For the summary the media decided to go back six presidents to show a change in the definition of unemployment, when they could of just used a recent example from obama changing the definition but that is not the story they wanted.

Nope, the US Constitution,20th Amendment, says that the term of the President end at noon and their successors start then. The swearing in is required before he executes any official duties.
For the rest it is just easier to quote the Constitution:
"If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President. If a President shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified."
If both were to die then it the House would select an eligible person for President and the Senate the VP. Obama would not be eligible since he already served two terms.

From on or about August 2013 through on or about March 17,2015, in the Eastern District of Virginia and elsewhere, the defendant, ZACHARY LEE SHAMES, knowingly and intentionally aided and abetted the commission of computer intrusions, in violation of 18U.S.C. ÂÂ 1030(a)(5)(A) and 2. In particular, attimes listed above, in the Eastern District of Virginia andelsewhere, SHAMES designed, marketed and sold certain malicious keylogger software, knowing that the software was going tobeused to knowingly cause the transmission ofa program, information, code, or command, and as a result of such conduct, intentionally cause damage without authorization to 10 or more protected computers during any one year period.
(All in violation of Title 18,United States Code, Section 1030(a)(5)(A) and 2)
So what he plead guilty to was developing the software and then knowingly selling it people who would be breaking the law. If he had marketed it toward the general public instead of marketing to crackers it would of not been a problem. For example I can sell and train people in lock picking all I want, however if someone comes up to me and says they want to break into a house with type X lock and want training and tools and I sell it to them then I am in trouble.

Just because one side is giving compensation does not mean the other side has to accept that compensation.
The closest lawsuit I can think of would be the sony one when they remove linux support from ps3. Sony lost and had to pay compensation.
The problem with this is that you are getting a compensation that is probably better then you would get on a one-on-one lawsuit, and it does not cost you any money. Or in other words who is going to sue?
As for safety that is being handled by not being allowed to bring them on aircraft. And as one other announcement on the plane said, if you just remembered you had one with you it had to be powered down, removed from any charging device and placed in a location you could watch it at all times.
