The Next Frontier of Consumer Exploitation By Corporations

DKlineburg Re:In store tracking (166 comments)

Oh I get that. And you get that. But on the other article about AI. Would AI get that? It is, in this fashion, tracking my cell phone and hers. Would it know they are the same? And why/how? Just curious brain thing. Do I think they could get there? Probably which is scary.

DKlineburg Re:In store tracking (166 comments)

Ok, lets just take the medical. I have psoriasis. Even scanning me would reveal as such. Does that mean I get spit out because of HIPA?

Study Finds iOS Apps Just As Intrusive As Android Apps

DKlineburg Re:More secure? Hardly. (107 comments)

Can you do this with Android? I can't seem to find a way. It looks like I have to accept everything or nothing. Maybe I'm just not trained.

Microsoft Integrating Xbox One Advertising With Kinect To Profile Users For Ads

DKlineburg Re:Why? (300 comments)

Ok, very fair point. I guess I like the credits in bob burger. And now that you mention it, probably in more than I thought about. On xbox, I guess I don't think it is nusience "too much" cause a quick b button and it is out. But if you have wireless, they can tend to disconect on you. I would still rank this bounds above a lot of others though.

DKlineburg Re:Why? (300 comments)

Microsoft Integrating Xbox One Advertising With Kinect To Profile Users For Ads

DKlineburg Re:It is better than buying used games (300 comments)

I think this is it. Look at steam top sellers, yes you will get some big titles in there. But you also get a lot of hey, this wierd inda game went on sale for 3 bucks. Everyone buys it, plays for a day and moves on. There are some interesting groups on there.

Microsoft Integrating Xbox One Advertising With Kinect To Profile Users For Ads

DKlineburg Re:Evil. (300 comments)

Netflix. That is my solution. I have been using hulu, and i'm almost at the point of throwing it out, but i only watch free stuff. So, ads and free. I may watch old things, and have no idea what tv exists, but I always have something to watch when I want, and don't have ads on netflix. I dought I will ever watch there entire library.

The Return of Surveillance Camera Man

DKlineburg Re: Idiot (188 comments)

This would not be creepy, it would be more interesting. And if you posted someone at the end of the street with a table an fliers, than you could make a point. I have to agree with others, his approach is creepy, and isn't getting the right word out.

US Hacked Chinese University Network

DKlineburg Re:I was entirely sympathetic to Snowden (330 comments)

I linked that in my reply to your last post, and it STILL has Chinese as most spoken. In 1997 and 2010. Yes 1 column out of 4 listed (one old) as English first. But all three columns are in close number of difference for how abstract this is. (261 dif, 151 dif, 138 dif)

From The Link; emphasis mine:

These are lists of languages by the number of first and second language speakers. However, particularly because of large uncertainties in estimating the number of secondary speakers, all such lists should be used with caution. In particular, the lists below should be seen as tentative.

give you a random list of who knows who sites. One had Spanish as second above English below Chinese, but I am not saying I trust those random sources. I guess the argument is mute at this point than. The most official data is 3 years old.

3D printer - Printed lower gun housing

DKlineburg DKlineburg writes  |  about a year and a half ago

DKlineburg (1074921) writes "The big thing is this:
This certainly isn't the first 3D printed gun part in existence, but it could be the first that's been made into a fully working firearm. What's important to note is that under U.S. law the lower receiver of an AR-15 (or any similar gun for that matter) is the component that is legally considered the "firearm." It's the main part that allows the gun to function, and even has the serial number printed on it for identification. Luckily for HaveBlue, making guns yourself isn't illegal so long as you don't sell or distribute them."
