Are the TSA's New Electronic Device Screenings Necessary?

ComputersKai Re: TSA is unnecessary (184 comments)

Still, at least the cockpit entrance should have some sort of door restricting entrance, so that the few hijackers that do end up mingling among passengers won't find it easy to enter before they are apprehended. In case it's the pilot, a hundred people would have no problem breaking the door down.

Fraudulent Apps Found In Apple's Store

ComputersKai The 99$ fee (89 comments)

Didn't Google remove Quickoffice in favor of Google Docs already?
At least do some research first before paying the 99$ developer fee to be able to upload apps in the first place.

Then again, it was released around the time Google was deciding to shut down the app.

Behind Apple's Sapphire Screen Debacle

ComputersKai Re:The missing information here: is it feasible? (189 comments)

Corning Glass did a test regarding it, but they are probably a little biased toward themselves, as they manufacture Gorilla Glass. Nevertheless, there are some advantages Gorilla Glass does have over sapphire.
I suppose sapphire glass solutions can possibly be implemented, but without some major improvements it'll probably just be a more expensive end-product with a bit more benefit.

Cameron Says People Radicalized By Free Speech; UK ISPs Agree To Censor Button

ComputersKai Re:This is why... (316 comments)

But anyways, in all seriousness, it's kind of disappointing to see the UK do this, especially when they were the ones that initially implemented some of the ideals in our Bill of Rights.

The Disgruntled Guys Who Babysit Our Aging Nuclear Missiles

ComputersKai Re:Scale down the land based forces (176 comments)

Submarines and bombers do have to fly back and refuel...etc. These silos don't.
However, they are stationary, so submarines/bombers are obviously more mobile. But they'll have to come back eventually some time to base for one reason or another.

New GCHQ Chief Says Social Media Aids Terrorists

ComputersKai Re:Arab Spring? (228 comments)

Yes, isn't it interesting how just that time the media was touting the power of "social media networks" in organizing protests?
Funny how now they claim it "aids terrorists". Doesn't that sound like something, say, some certain oppressive dictators would say?

New GCHQ Chief Says Social Media Aids Terrorists

ComputersKai Re:Not a win (228 comments)

Yes, the the generalization of Muslims isn't exactly accurate, but that isn't the main idea here.

Regardless of whether the post is "politically incorrect" or not, the important thing to remember is that we may eventually become just like the "evil adversary" that we don't want to become, if we continue to go on sacrificing liberties for "safety".

Former Infosys Recruiter Says He Was Told Not To Hire US Workers

ComputersKai Re:Corporate Malfeasance (293 comments)

Well, this isn't that type of discrimination though; as mentioned above, it's more for financial reasons rather than the actual race being factored in.

Google Threatened With $100M Lawsuit Over Nude Celebrity Photos

ComputersKai Re:Not named? (225 comments)

Good point. It's like the lawyer is just randomly suing Google for hosting inappropriate pictures.

Correction. Not necessarily hosting, but providing a method to obtain access to those images.

Ebola Has Made It To the United States

ComputersKai Re:They need to lock this down now! (475 comments)

Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a West African country, where the disease is spreading, and later developed symptoms that suggested Ebola.

How is it that the airports, customs, and immigration allowed this to pass through in the first place? Wouldn't this have set off some sort of "warning"?
