NASA Can't Ethically Send Astronauts On One-Way Missions To Deep Space

MrP- Re:What About Seniors And The Terminally Ill? (402 comments)

"NASA's 70 year long mission sadly ended today, day 93 of 25567, as the last terminally ill astronaut succumbed to his illness.

A backup mission was planned but had to be scrapped because the commander broke his hip."

How interested are you in Virtual Reality tech?

MrP- Re:So-called "3D" (202 comments)

Then you should like the VR tech as I have the same issue as you (also I have a bad eye so I can't use 3D glasses unless I purposely try to go cross-eyed to get my left eye to use the lens).

But I have an oculus rift and it's amazing.

Your Next Online Order Could Be Delivered To Your Car's Trunk

MrP- Re:Note to self (162 comments)

Better idea: Blame the UPS driver for delivering a dead hooker with your package and get away with it!

Price of Amazon Prime May Jump To $119 a Year

MrP- Re:It doesn't offer free shipping (298 comments)

I make at least 1 order a week (more like 1 order a day). I think I've watched a video once on their site. If they give an option for just prime shipping at the same rate I'd take it. But if not I'll still pay the $119 since I order so much

iOS 7 Lock Screen Bug Leaves Certain Apps Vulnerable For Access

MrP- Re:Yes, it invoked the multitasking screen but... (135 comments)

Actually the only security problem seems to be the Camera app. Since the camera app is allowed from the lock screen if you open it via the multitask screen while using this trick it opens the full camera app.

Normally the camera app when password protected can take new photos and can't access old ones but when you do it this way you have full access to the camera roll. You can delete photos, share them (txt, email, twitter, facebook, etc).

So that's a security issue.

iOS 7 Lock Screen Bug Leaves Certain Apps Vulnerable For Access

MrP- Re:Yes, it invoked the multitasking screen but... (135 comments)

Yeah I got the same. I can see the apps and can close them but most are just dark blank screens and not the actual app and none can open. The only thing that opens is the alarm app and if you click the home screen one it just goes back to the lock screen.

As far as I can tell as long as your lock screen is password protected it won't show any part of the app other than the initial view (e.g. a blank safari, or a splash screen of the app). So for example if you were viewing an email it doesn't seem the email will be visible in the multitask screen.

Now if you're not password protected (either off or you don't require a passcode immediately) and do the same trick the multitask screen shows everything and you can switch apps but that's fine since you can already unlock without a password.

So it doesn't seem to be that big of an issue.

Pre-Dawn Wireless Emergency Alert Wakes Up NYC

MrP- Re:Loud? (382 comments)

I should probably add this happened at like 10AM so even if it did make a sound I was already up. Also I don't even think it rained that day so kind of a useless alert.

Pre-Dawn Wireless Emergency Alert Wakes Up NYC

MrP- Re:Loud? (382 comments)

It seems to respect the vibrate button on my iPhone.

Unless there's different types and the flood warning alert I got last week is one that doesn't trigger sound.

If a Network Is Broken, Break It More

Ask Slashdot: Best Protection Plan For Your Phone?

MrP- Re:Theft Protection (225 comments)

Worth Ave Group seems to be the only one that covers theft.

I used them for my iPad however I just sold my iPad and they don't let you transfer warranties (the warranty covers the user not the item). Unsure if they refund any money if you cancel a policy since I haven't called yet and they don't let you cancel online.

So for my new iPhone 5 I got SquareTrade again since you can transfer warranties if you sell the product and you can cancel early and get refunded the difference (I got $67 back from canceling my 4S policy).

So if theft is a big issue for you then Worth Ave Group is OK I guess but for my needs I'm sticking with SquareTrade.
