In a Self-Driving Future, We May Not Even Want To Own Cars

Andtalath Re:In a Self-Driving Future--- (453 comments)

So you can accept that cars can be perfectly self-driving, but not that they can haul stuff?

In a Self-Driving Future, We May Not Even Want To Own Cars

Andtalath Will probably not be legal to own a car (453 comments)

When we reach a level where traffic is dominated by automated traffic, why would we even allow people on the roads?
Automated only means no stupid mistakes ever.

And more control for large players is quite popular as well.

So, not only will for hire be the norm, it will be the only alternative.

Website Peeps Into 73,000 Unsecured Security Cameras Via Default Passwords

Andtalath Re:Computer License (321 comments)

The correct solution is to build secure computers from the ground up.

First step?
Disable anything but an app store/repo unless the user unlocks insecure mode.

Andtalath Re:People buy stuff without understanding is... (321 comments)

Give here a chromebook.

I gave my mother my old laptop with openbox and chrome on it, basically the same thing.

And she is happy with it.

Calls me far less than she did with her windows laptop, actually.

The only time it happens is when she needs the admin password for a new wifi.

Andtalath Re:When you encrypt everything... (200 comments)

So buy dedicated bandwidth then.
It is fully possible to do it.

It's just about 40 times more expensive.

Tim Cook: "I'm Proud To Be Gay"

Andtalath Re:So what? (764 comments)

You are wrong, it's telling who you are capable of falling in love with.
Stop focusing so much on sex, sexual orientation is an emotional and attraction issue, not a sexual perversion.

Except homosexuals are harassed, discriminated against, bullied, being told that they are sick, abnormal.
And so forth.
Just because they are incapable of falling in love with the opposite sex.

Tim Cook: "I'm Proud To Be Gay"

Andtalath Re:So what? (764 comments)

The problem is that obviously something as irrelevant as who somebody is capable of falling in love with is worthy of headlines.

Therefore it's worth normalizing it.

Since for some bloody reason it isn't already universally accepted to love each other.

Tim Cook: "I'm Proud To Be Gay"

Andtalath Re:So what? (764 comments)

He isn't talking about his sex life.
He is telling you that he is incapable of falling in love with women and capable of falling in love with men.

It's you who have a problem separating love from sex.

Tim Cook: "I'm Proud To Be Gay"

Andtalath Re:Gay? (764 comments)

There is nothing wrong with having a sexual orientation, no matter what it is.
Acting upon it can be bad.

Btw, Pedophiliacs are the only one of those three which is a sexual orientation, and a very sad one at that.
You can only romantically love pre-pubescents.
That is terribly sad.
Raping children is horrible though and is entirely separate.

Bestiality is the act of having sex with animals.
I believe you are looking for the term zoofiliacs, which is, just like Pedophiles, very sad.
And raping animals is a complex issue, especially since we do it with insemination.
Defining exactly why it feels worse when we enjoy raping them then when we do it to kill and eat their children is for me impossible, but, hey, not really the topic here?

Incest is not something which is related to sexual preference.
It's not like people who have sex with their family have no ability to be attracted or romantically involved with other people.
The issue is two-folded:
1: High risk for problematic offpsring, explaining why almost all humans have an aversion to the behaviour.
2: There is a high risk of problematic situations occuring when children have sex with parents or siblings.

It's not so much that homosexuality is different from any other sexual orientation, it's just that there is no logical reason to argue against it being a perfectly fine way to live your life.
Most sexual orientations barring hetero or BTQ are way less easy to incorporate into a decent life.

Samsung Acknowledges and Fixes Bug On 840 EVO SSDs

Andtalath Re:Wonder what brand is best now... Intel? (101 comments)

Usually they have improved firmware and a bit more redundant memory on them.

Also, it was intel 320, and it lost almost all capacity if it was writing and lost power.
