Kenja There is no competition... (110 comments)

The only other options are satellite and DSL... they successfully prevented competition when they threw their "we no share our cables" fit awhile back.

U.S. Senator: All Cops Should Wear Cameras

Kenja Re:I like... (602 comments)

You are confusing the Republican voters, who will often just elect the person with the (R) next to their name, and their representatives, who will often do things that the voters do not want (but at least their not godless democrats!).

60,000 Oculus Rift DK2 Orders, 20,000+ Units Shipped, New Orders Ship In October

Kenja Re:Eh, Suckers! (67 comments)

While I'm not a fan of the system, what you are paying for is mostly the motion tracking system. I do have the first generation dev kit and it's rather nice compared to similar prior systems (Virtual-IO for example). But it is also majorly over hyped and Facebooks involvement was a death blow for me. But that's just me...

Silent Circle's Blackphone Exploited at Def Con

Kenja Cell phones are insecure. (46 comments)

It's inherent in how they work. Rather then trying to secure them, which I don't think can be done, just start assuming they are insecure and treat them as such. Don't hold a private, personal conversation in a crowded public room and don't send text messages you don't want other people to see.

PayPal's Two-Factor Authentication Can Be Bypassed Using eBay Bug

Kenja unable to replicate findings. (33 comments)

Perhaps I'm not understanding... but as my PayPal and eBay accounts have different passwords and i have two factor authentication setup using a DigiPass 5 rotating cypher key, I am unable to replicate what is being reported. No mater what, I am prompted for my DigiPass token key and password.

Satya Nadella At Six Months: Grading Microsoft's New CEO

Kenja Re:Microsoft has a new CEO? (151 comments)

It was pushed out as a bug fix update and bundled in with a bunch of others so you wouldn't notice that they're trying to fix a major problem.

The Misleading Fliers Comcast Used To Kill Off a Local Internet Competitor

Kenja Get used to this... (250 comments)

These sort of things are legal now. Corporations are people, and people have free speech, and spending money is speech.

Kenja It has 2GB internal memory. (113 comments)

There is 2GB of memory for the OS, personal settings, apps, etc. If you can not boot the device, you can not access this memory to clear it. You may be SOL.

Cable Companies: We're Afraid Netflix Will Demand Payment From ISPs

Kenja Using what leverage? (200 comments)

To extort money from someone, you need to threaten them with something. Netflix has no leverage because their customers will most often have no choice in ISPs.

FTC To Trap Robocallers With Open Source Software

Kenja Go after Comcast etc... (125 comments)

Comcast etc sell their customers phone numbers to illicit third parties. I ended up having to throw together an Asterix system with a simple "no solicitations, press one to continue" message to filter out all the robo-calls I got when I was forced to switch services over to Comcast.

US House Passes Permanent Ban On Internet Access Taxes

Kenja So then no public funded internet? (148 comments)

This means no public internet, it will forever now be a private enterprise. Not sure I like that possibility in the long run given how the ISP monopolies behave.
