German Publishers Capitulate, Let Google Post News Snippets
You're accusing Amazon of colluding with.... Amazon? That word doesn't mean what you think it means.
New Real Life Laser-Rifle Cuts Through Metal Like a Blowtorch
It emits a circularly polarized beam of light of course!
Toronto Family Bans All Technology In Their Home Made After 1986
Good luck finding a hospital with a functioning circa 1986 MRI and requisite control systems that haven't been updated to with post 1986 technology!
Your other point still stands though.
$20 'Toy' Deactivates Cheap Home Alarms, Opens Doors
So can many universal remotes, so can a computer, so can anything else.
This is almost as silly as the "access to an unencrypted disk is access to your data!!!!!" story from a few days ago.
Wireless Charging Start-Up Claims 30-Foot Radius
Not really. That was an *extremely* poorly controlled experiment by grade school students. Magically, no one else has produced similar results in an actual controlled study.
If your *only* evidence is a single experiment performed by individuals with barely rudimentary training in the sciences, you might want to consider that it is your bias causing you to readily accept the outlier as opposed to the norm.
NSA Can Spy On Data From Smart Phones, Including Blackberry
BES in theory can only be intercepted and cracked with a massive amount of computation time, limiting the functional use of any dragnet attempts.
Journalists never understand the difference between BIS and BES though.
Patent Suit Leads To 500,000 Annoyed Software Users
I think it's the hubris of Apple hurting the "software users" more than the patent holder. Instead of working something out, notifying its users, or something else, it just makes their app work poorly now.
Perhaps they can be told they are holding it wrong causing connectivity issues....
Cold War Plan Tried To Put a Copper Ring Around the Earth
And yet it was the Soviet Union that spent itself in to oblivion and collapsed first. History doesn't support your position.
iPhone Hacked In Under 60 Seconds Using Malicious Charger
Since when? iOS has had repeated and nearly constant flaws that have allowed for compromises both locally and remotely (via webpages). At this point it's such a given that this is mostly a non story.
I thought the RDF had dissipated, but I guess not.
Poll Shows That 75% Prefer Printed Books To eBooks
But with an ebook, he can increase the font size to help out with that worsened eyesight...
WY Teen Cut From Science Fair For Entering Too Many
Well, we also don't have trouble creating fusion reactions that put out *far* more energy than we put in to them.
The problem is doing anything useful with that energy other than making a really big boom.
DRM: How Book Publishers Failed To Learn From the Music Industry
The reason is, PDF and ebooks are really at odds with one another.
The point of PDF is to render the exact same on each screen. Like a physical book, each page should always look the same (only zoomed or not zoomed). An ebook needs to be able to reflow the text to support changing aspect ratios, font sizes, etc. When you do this with PDF, you can just zoom in or out. If your application is actually reflowing a PDF, that means it's not really displaying a PDF. Instead, it is taking the content, extracting it, and displaying it in some native format.
BSA Study Demonstrates Open Source's Economic Advantage
It's funny that you call someone out with "" and then start making claims that you aren't backing with a shred of evidence either.
Curiosity Rewarded: Florida Teen Heading to Space Camp, Not Jail
Fear motivates the world (or at least the US) these days.
The media peddles it, the two political parties (I was tempted to say major, but they have a lock on it) *both* peddle it to great effect. They each have their own brand, but they're both villainous in their exploitation of it.
The public has bought in to it, and individuals and groups lacking in scruples have noticed that it can be used to rally support.
Working Handgun Printed On a Sub-$2,000 3D Printer
It does appear that the goal is not to reduce crime, though that is used as a statistic. I do agree that the banning of guns appears to be an end on its own for these people. It makes little sense. There is an irrational fear, probably instilled at an early age. It is similar to the irrational fear that other people have towards people instead of objects. I think it is the same base motivation, and the separate groups each see their cause as just. It doesn't mean they both aren't delusional though.
Ask Slashdot: Why Won't Companies Upgrade Old Software?
This is an easy assumption to make, but it isn't always the truism you're making it out to be. Many software packages are highly specialized. There may only be a handful of options available that perform their function. Many of them may be difficult and far more expensive than you realize to upgrade, may have been abandoned, may have been ruined by "improvements" during upgrades, etc. When a piece of software is integral to a business, and there is no simple upgrade path, sometimes the cheapest (and *correct*) option is to stay on an "outdated" platform. Often, mitigating the issues with the old systems are cheaper than upgrading the software (if that is even possible).
A Glimpse of a Truly Elastic Cloud
And not a hypervisor at that point, but just an OS executing applications. Oh how novel!
Rapiscan's Backscatter Machines May End Up In US Federal Buildings
Incorrect. Backscatter machines use very low amounts of ionizing radiation.
You're confusing them with the models being left in place, the "millimeter wave" ones, which do not.
Texas State Rep. Files 2 Bills To Ban RFID In Schools
In every example that you present, you are in the environment due to your own choice. You are free to refuse the badge and leave at any time. Therein lies the difference.
