Ask Slashdot: Unlimited Data Plan For Seniors?

Noah Haders Re:StraighTalk (168 comments)

I prefer FreedomPop. $75/yr for unlimited/unlimited/500mb, with extra GB being $25 per. Or, unlimited/unlimited/unlimited for $20/mo with first GB on 4g then the rest on 3G. Those are pretty sweet deals.

LAX To London Flight Delayed Over "Al-Quida" Wi-Fi Name

Noah Haders Re:This was no AP. (326 comments)

well the govt has laws against speech that incites danger or violence. These laws are constitutional, say the supremes. They ruled in the 60's that speech that can be reasonably expected to cause imminent danger is not protected by the constitution. so go ahead and do what you want but sux for you if you get arrested.

Drones Could 3D-Map Scores of Hectares of Land In Just a Few Hours

Noah Haders units (91 comments)

what does it mean scores of hectares? [checks google]

For the 'mericuns, one score hectare is 49 acres. for the people who insist on SK/mks, one score hectare is 200,000 m^2. For the left-brain thinkers, there are 17 score hectares in Central Park in NYC or 64 football fields in one score hectare.

US Post Office Increases Secret Tracking of Mail

Noah Haders Re:competition (106 comments)

YEAH BUT INTERPRETATION IS 9/10 OF THE LAW. just ask scalia who basically makes it up as he goes along. those people are the true dictators because they're in office for life and can wreak havoc like amok. all of them are gangsters: scalia, Sotomayor, Thomas. the others are ok.

US Post Office Increases Secret Tracking of Mail

Noah Haders Re:competition (106 comments)

I think what's fair is that the constitution does have an interstate commerce clause, and if you think about it, all commerce is interstate in some way because some ingredients may be from other states or something else. so everything is constitutional probably.

curious - when you say he's tough on animal abuse, does that mean he ruthlessly goes after animal abusers or he likes to kick puppies on the way to work?

Noah Haders Re:This was no AP. (326 comments)

you seem to think that free speech means you can spout your mouth off whenever you want. I know that free speech means protection from unreasonable government interference. I got news for you, you keep spouting your mouth off and somebody's gonna bop you in the nose, and the government isn't going to interfere with that, either.

Noah Haders Re:StraighTalk (168 comments)

wow 10GB+ a month, is she watching Netflix or a lot of youtube on there? If 3g speeds would work, I suggest FreedomPop. you get unlimited* for $20/mo, where unlimited means 1st GB 4g and remaining GB 3g. Or get a wifi repeater?

In both cases, you have people getting some lulz without considering or taking responsibility for the fact that their actions have great consequences.

OneDrive Delivers Unlimited Cloud Storage To Office 365 Subscribers

Noah Haders Re:Sky drive? (143 comments)

I have a "OneDrive for Business" folder on my desktop. Presumably if I put a file in this folder it will sync to be online, then I can access it online from any computer. But does it sync automatically or is it a manual thing? Dropbox syncs pretty much every 5 minutes or whenever there's a file update. Also on dropbox there are past versions available online. Is this true for OneDrive?

LAX To London Flight Delayed Over "Al-Quida" Wi-Fi Name

Noah Haders Re:This was no AP. (326 comments)

trolling has its place, but making jokes about terrorism on a crowded airplane is not the place to do it. That's just common sense. At least the plane was on the ground at the time so it didn't have to be diverted.

Or maybe you also think that it's funny to be doxxing women who speak out on cultural issues, because panicky people are fun to watch.

Google buying satellite constellation network; will watch your every movement

Noah Haders Noah Haders writes  |  about 4 months ago

Noah Haders (3621429) writes "The Wall Street Journal profiles one of Google's recent acquisitions which has implications on mapping, competitive intelligence and even privacy. Skybox Imaging is an intelligence company that by the year 2018 will be able to take satellite imaging to the next level:
By the time its entire fleet of 24 satellites has launched in 2018, Skybox will be imaging the entire Earth at a resolution sufficient to capture, for example, real-time video of cars driving down the highway. And it will be doing it three times a day.
The ability to take such frequent imaging will certainly aid Google's Maps product, but it also opens up a market for competitive intelligence. Skybox says they are already looking at Foxconn every week and are able to pinpoint the next iPhone release based on the density of trucks outside their manufacturing facilities.

Google plans on initially using the technology to improve their Maps product, potentially providing more up-to-date satellite images, but Skybox executives have long term plans for offering their data to outside developers for a fee."
