OldJuke whats the difference (56 comments)

between what he did and what the NSA does on a routine basis and massive scale? "suspected of illegally downloading police files." hackers get charged/sentenced for accessing private files, why is the NSA not similarly charged?

OldJuke Traditional Mail? (79 comments)

What about printing the documents and submitting them via traditional post? USPS, UPS, or Fedex? Honestly that seems to be the most anonymous/un-traceable way to send documents.

Chrome Does Have a Caps-Lock Key After All

OldJuke Re:Speak for yourself! (391 comments)

And why pick on insert delete when there is so much more low hanging fruit? Why not pick on F9-F12? Scroll lock?! Or the duplicated forward slashes or pipe key?

Don't need pipe key??? How do you suggest I use an OR condition (x || y) in most programming languages?

Let's all follow NASA's design methods. The 2011 model cars will be available sometime after the year 2050, that is if the project isn't scrapped around 2040.

XBox One Games Punish Users for Swearing

OldJuke OldJuke writes  |  about a year ago

OldJuke (1767050) writes "NBA 2K14 for the Xbox One is handing out technical fouls for bad language detected through the Kinect's voice sensor. A 2K14 user posted this video (warning offensive language) to his YouTube account to show the technical foul he received during the game for cursing. A FIFA 2014 gamer received an in-game written warning for offensive language. Is this trend a positive movement towards a safer and more civilized gaming experience? Or is this an intrusion on gamers' freedom of expression?"

Yota phone launches with secondary e-ink display

OldJuke OldJuke writes  |  about a year ago

OldJuke (1767050) writes "Called the YotaPhone, the device pairs a traditional LCD color touch-screen on one side with a black-and-white, electronic-paper display on the other, allowing users to continuously view data in real time without having to constantly wake up their phones and drain their batteries. General interaction will be done through the LCD screen, but the e-paper display allows an image to be displayed at all times—from maps, airline boarding passes and family photos to Twitter messages and emails—but only uses power when the picture changes. BBC News interviewed the company's leader, Vlad Martynov, for a hands on demonstration."

OldJuke (1767050) writes "State high-speed rail officials acknowledged Thursday that they changed their rules for selecting a builder for the bullet train's first phase in the Central Valley, a shift that subsequently made it possible for a consortium led by Sylmar-based Tutor Perini to be ranked as the top candidate despite receiving the lowest technical rating. Bloggers are reporting that Tutor Perini is primarily owned by Richard Blum, husband to Senator Feinstein"

Fukushima water leak discovered

OldJuke OldJuke writes  |  about a year and a half ago

OldJuke (1767050) writes "Tokyo Electric power Co. said about 120 tons of the water are believed to have breached the tank's inner linings, some of it possibly leaking into the soil. TEPCO is moving the water to a nearby tank at the Fukushima Dai-chi plant — a process that could take several days ...More than 270,000 tons of highly radioactive water is already stored in hundreds of gigantic tanks and another underground tank. They are visible even at the plant's entrance and built around the compound, taking up more than 80 percent of its storage capacity.
TEPCO expects the amount to double over three years and plans to build hundreds of more tanks by mid-2015 to meet the demand."
