Former TSA Administrator Speaks

Aerorae Re:Big crowds are targets (196 comments)

Wrong. Kip Hawley was right when he said that this would merely shift terrorists' training focus to people on those pre-screened lists. It's a farce, yet another, that aims to merely make the ignorant masses "feel" safe. When the masses "feel" safe they praise on high their elected officials who "saved" them and "protected" them in their time of need, and REELECT them

Sony's Plan To Tighten Security and Fight Hacktivism

Aerorae Re:*clap* *clap* (247 comments)

Isn't that kinda how these big businesses work in general these days? Microsoft, Apple, Sony, Samsung, Motorola, Oracle, Intel, Dell, etc? I guess I'm just saying if someone has an issue with Sony they probably have an issue with the whole industry & it's practices, not /just/ Sony...

Sony's Plan To Tighten Security and Fight Hacktivism

Aerorae Re:*clap* *clap* (247 comments)

Just because of how Sony handled this? Please, after this fiasco they'll be the safest company to trust your info to. Sony didn't handle the breach well, nor did it inform customers as it should have, but guess what? NO OTHER COMPANY would have done ANYTHING different. I'll bet there are many that would've tried to deny the whole thing.

Are Rich People Less Moral?

Aerorae Sorta (1040 comments)

Up to a point, then they become moral again because it no longer means as much. I think it occurs once you get past the billionaire mark: Examples: Warren Buffet, Bill Gates...

Google Working On Password Generator For Chrome

Aerorae Re:What could go wrong? (175 comments)

You mean the Do Not Track list which is practically unenforceable? The one where the advertisers "do the right thing" and honor the users' request not to track them? Such an IRONCLAD defense against predatory advertisers should be the gold standard, shouldn't it?

Google-Funded Study Knocks Firefox Security

Aerorae Re:Here it comes (225 comments)

The problem is that, though I agree whole-heartedly with the results of the study, it was funded by Google. Even if it wasn't we'd have controversy, but since it does, it's gunna be more than a flamewar!

Paper On Super Flu Strain May Be Banned From Publication

Aerorae Re:Peh. (754 comments)

Agreed. This merely shows the rest of us that not only CAN it be done, but that it HAS been done and certainly CAN be done in the future!

Hiding the information just gives those who want to keep it all for themselves more time to do awful things.

New Jersey DMV Employees Caught Selling Identities

Aerorae Sigh (279 comments)

I didn't realize that our identities were so worthless. Whether it is attributed to evil, or a lack of humanity on the part of the two employees, this represents a fundamental problem among people today: "Doesn't affect me, so I don't care."
I believe that will destroy us even faster than bank collapses or political corruption, in a sense because those maladies are results of the "I don't care" problem. "I can buy these horrible securities, if it goes bad, it doesn't affect me, so I don't care", "My constituents want this, sure it'll put 100,000 people out of work, but it doesn't affect me, so I don't care", "Hell I'll sell peoples identities, sure they'll be plagued by this for a matter of decades to come, but it doesn't affect me, so I don't care."
People need to care about things that don't affect them or else this world is very very doomed.
