All Bitcoin Wallets On Android Vulnerable To Theft
I would say the main advantage of bitcoin is that you *don't need* "big-name transaction clearinghouses". If you use those, you might just as well just pay with your creditcard.
All Bitcoin Wallets On Android Vulnerable To Theft
Have you ever looked at the android source code? I have done some hacking on cyanogenmod and it's amazing what kind of crap can be found in a code base that is being used by several hundred million(!) people..
Stop Fixing All Security Vulnerabilities, Say B-Sides Security Presenters
Why get a ladder when you can just walk in next door without one?
The argument is moot.
It's like it is with bike locks. Getting a better one does not guarantee that your bike won't get stolen, but it does help! And a 100% security is always unattainable.
The CIA Wants To Know How To Control the Climate
You call bullshit for the wrong reason. The problem of the GP's statement lies not in whether there are or are not more trees/forests than a 100 years ago, but in the fact that he considers a 100 years to be a long time. The whole climate change discussion suffers from this. Surely we will be OK in the next 50 or a 100 years as well. But if you actually care about the future of our species and that of the planet in general, a 100 years is nothing. The fact that we *can* see the climate change in just a persons' lifetime should be scary enough for anyone!
Former Microsoft Exec Ray Ozzie Named To HP Board
If you put it like that, it looks like there is no way to change the system other than violent revolution. Interesting.
Math and Science Popular With Students Until They Realize They're Hard
I am still not sure I understand using 4x4 matrices to do transforms in three space. I can write the code though (slowly).
Because a 3 dimensional object can be translated by a linear operation in 4 dimensional space. Similar to how you are able to move (the projection) of a 2D shape by moving it along an arbitrary third axis pointing out of the shape's plane. This doesn't sound fundamentally very difficult for me. Now group theory on the other hand... I guess it depends on how your brain works. I have a lot less trouble with geometry than with more abstract maths.
I figure that if I feel a need to consult my old BioChem text to figure out just what that ingredient is, I shouldn't be eating it.
Though I think this is a wise attitude, you must be starving!? Or do you grow your own groceries or something?
The Aging of Our Nuclear Power Plants Is Not So Graceful
Both were outdated and should have been scrapped but due to irrational fear, were allowed to keep running past thier expiration date

There, fixed that for you.
Have We Hit Peak HFT?
then why not tax per volume traded?
It *is* taxed per volume. 0.03%, which it nothing for a normal transaction. But for someone who buys and sells the same stock a hundred times per day, just to profit from tiny fluctuations in the stock value, it's 3%. This will kill the ridiculous business of racing for fastest connection and smartest trading algo, which is *good* because it is a ridiculous and useless business.
Google Chrome 27 Is Out: 5% Faster Page Loads
Web browsers are like washing powder. Forever three times concentrated and more powerful, bla bla bla. Yet my laundry doesn't get any cleaner.. and my web browsing doesn't get any faster!

Van Rossum: Python Not Too Slow
I always find the statement that most of the time is spent in just a small part of the code tricky. I am not sure it is even true for many programs. I wrote some software for http://aichallenge.org/ and found that very many somewhat intensive operations accumulate, which made the python version of my software prohibitively slow compared to a C++ version I wrote, with no easy single performance bottleneck to blame.

Jimmy Wales To Become UK Government Adviser
The government may have listened to the Godfather.. Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer.
Did the Titanic Sink Due To an Optical Illusion?
I don't think cost was the issue here. It is just very inconvenient for a passenger liner. Moving around the ship will become very difficult if you have to get through a watertight door every few meters.
Also there may have been structural issues. Even if the bulkheads would have been completely watertight, the flooding of all forward compartments would have caused the ship to pitch forward, which might have caused here to break in two like she did anyway. I am no expert on early twentieth century passenger liner design, but I am sure they had their reason to design her the way they did.
Eric Schmidt: UN Treaty a 'Disaster' For the Internet
Why would you assume there is an X amount of political power? That makes no sense at all.
I would think the idea behind a 'United' Nations is to lessen the need for power and thus reduce X. Whether this is working out at present is a different matter.
