NSA Can Retrieve, Replay All Phone Calls From a Country From the Past 30 Days
Put your android or apple phone in front of you. Say a word that you normally wouldn't say. Repeat it 3 times. Start typing it in google search. Google pulls it up pretty quickly but it is normally #3 in the list the word that you said. Is it perfect...no. Google search app mind you. And yes I tested this on an IPhone 4, not 4s+ (no siri).
What I'm upset about is... how much of my reported bandwidth that Cox is forcing down my throat this "feature". Am I currently paying for google to throw advertising (or selling my info)?
Trolls... yes you have to have internet.
Ask Slashdot: Can an Old Programmer Learn New Tricks?
Now apply unit testing. Start by making unit tests for current functionality so when you are refactoring, the same outcome exists each step of the way. It's like the paradigm of fail fast, fail often, test fast, test often. When refactoring code into better units of work one must refactor into conceptual entities rather than refactor functions. Separate the logic from the factory so to speak.
Stack Overflow Could Explain Toyota Vehicles' Unintended Acceleration
I mean.. lesson well learned. I will test the throttle now. Ah crap that's right I was fired. Must not do that in the next automotive company, Saturn beware I made buyers be weary of the Toyota Brand. (Glad Lexus drivers have more common sense)
Comcast Donates Heavily To Defeat Mayor Who Is Bringing Gigabit Fiber To Seattle
I would say once enough of the middle class are unable to continue throwing billions of dollars at the corporate entities and that bubble does finally pop, mass starvation will hit.
I would believe that is when the revolution and major changes will take place. It is not a question of If but when (is that the question anymore?).
Trojanized SSH Daemon In the Wild, Sending Passwords To Iceland
For this reason, we have a rule. Always ssh FROM the more trusted machine TO the less trusted one, never the other way around. For scp and rsync, that means always PUSH files to a client's machine or any server on the public internet, never PULL to a less trusted machine from a more trusted one.
How would that work? Honestly I don't know so don't troll me ;P. How would I connect to my local ssh server from a work resource (that uses rsa key concatination), from my house?
Visual Studio Gets Achievements, Badges, Leaderboards
WTF is my first reaction.
Second reaction is that that would have been awesome to work on the team that built that in because it shows that they have a bit more freedom with what goes in a program like Visual Studio. This sounds like a progressive step forward in the engineering team @ Microsoft. I can't give them kudos for this _exact_ application of listening to programmers but the idea that people are allowing for ownership and creativity is gratifying to see in a development firm.
Its something different than the boring troll of debugging the application, fixing build errors, and building more.
Google Donating $11.5M To Fight Modern Slavery
It is nearing the end of the year isn't it? Crap we need to pay taxes again: well what can we spend a crap ton of money on: well there's human rights. What about the hundreds of sites that we found soliciting for slaves? That sounds like something we can sink our teeth into: Enslaving ... I mean freeing the people who are subject to these things.
Righthaven Hit With Class Action Counterclaim
Just because you have the money to get people to suck your dick doesn't make prostitution legal.
