Researchers Print Electronic Memory On Paper
I've been printing my memory on paper since I could hold a pencil...
Yes, but you've been cheating by using wide-ruled paper and double-spacing.
More Forgotten Vials of Deadly Diseases Discovered
And this is exactly what will happen at the NBAF [ON A UNIVERSITY CAMPUS, FFS] in a handful of years, for man is a sloppy, lazy beast.
Why the FCC Is Likely To Ignore Net Neutrality Comments and Listen To ISPs
Frankly, I think net neutrality will win out in the marketplace because of the things some companies, e.g., Google, are doing to let their users know that the ISP's are throttling them. The ISP's can't prevent them from doing this and ISP's customers can choose another ISP that doesn't do it, or at least offers better performance.
Since we are talking about the US 'market' here; what the fuck are you smoking?
FBI Concerned About Criminals Using Driverless Cars
"Due to this threat, we must have the ability to totally control driverless cars... and cars with drivers... and all electronic devices... and we need to track people in real time for the entirety of their lives..."
Comcast Customer Service Rep Just Won't Take No For an Answer
"We're the Phone Company. We don't care; we don't have to." -- Lilly Tomlinson, pre-AT&T monopoly break-up
Rand Paul and Silicon Valley's Shifting Political Climate
Greed is a disease more deadly than heroin, hardening your heart and turning you into a right-wing monster, driven to amassing ever more power and lucre until you feel absolutely justified in bending society itself to your warped, dystopian world view. Rockefeller, Walton, Koch, Ellison, Zuckerberg; all the same fuckers.
The Last Three Months Were the Hottest Quarter On Record
Miami is fucked. NYC, unless they build some wall, is fucked. So where are the debates on how to build the containment walls? Or the storm-proofed shelters? Or the projected increase in FEMA budget?
Time to check the real estate records; are large entities buying up land about a mile inland from existing shoreline?
If they were smart, environment groups should do just that; it would swell their coffers selling increasingly valuable land - after being able to loudly gloat that they were quite right all along.
Hair-Raising Technique Detects Drugs, Explosives On Human Body
Terror is the goal, and having people killed are only the means.
Or in the case of Bin Laden, a successful attack would lead to Machiavellian scumbags within the US government turning the country into a police state for power and profit, slowly boiling away the rights and privacies of his real target: the American citizenry (who allowed murderous, abusive foreign policies to be conducted in their name).
And to this day, they are still running his playbook, with zero intention of ever stopping.
Climate Change Skeptic Group Must Pay Damages To UVA, Michael Mann
The sad end will be this coven of trolls claiming it was all based on their 'religious beliefs' and our shit-heel 'supreme' court will given them a free pass. At the current increasing decent into madness, they might even reverse the costs back on Mann.
A dumped ex-boyfriend with some leet skills 'hacking' their ex-girlfriend into an unwanted pregnancy. Great idea.
Coddled, Surveilled, and Monetized: How Modern Houses Can Watch You
A one-time neighbor about ten years ago told me: "Oh, no; I don't want a new TV. They've got cameras in them that can watch what you're doing."
At the time, I smiled politely, while thinking he was a total loon. Nope; just prescient.
Foxconn Replacing Workers With Robots
Something seems different this time. I'm just not seeing the replacement jobs. Help me spot them, please.
Here's some: "Welcome to Walmart."
Here's some more: "Please pull around to the second window."
Industrial Control System Firms In Dragonfly Attack Identified
Of course, it still is a mystery why US-CERT/ICS-CERT and the European CERTs don't mention any of the company names. The names would certainly be helpful if they wanted to alert asset owners that they may be compromised.
It's no mystery at all.
New Snowden Leak: of 160000 Intercepted Messages, Only 10% From Official Targets
and huh .... wait. They could get that stuff on anyone, couldn't they. They could get that on me.
I think the most effective campaign to raise true awareness of the dangers of the organs of state security would be highway billboards that merely say:
The NSA knows what you did.
NSA Considers Linux Journal Readers, Tor (And Linux?) Users "Extremists"
Finally someone pays attention to us Linux folk!
Microsoft Backs Open Source For the Internet of Things
And Microsoft's appointee to the board is Mr. M. Bracex Tinguish.
Bug In Fire TV Screensaver Tears Through 250 GB Data Cap
My Chromecast displays very pretty nature photos as a screensaver when on but not in use - and they sure aren't local images. It also doesn't appear to shut off after a certain period either (at least an hour or so). Time to check my data usage next time I have it in standby.
Hierarchical Membrane For Cleaning Up Oil Spills
I read about this and I wish them well, especially when the membranes start to clog-up with real-ocean dirt and bacteria move in to build a cozy biofilm community.
Automotive Grade Linux Released For Open Source Cars
Just be sure you don't install the Lockheed fluid package into your Girling brakes app; it will lock-up. Literally.
Court Allowed NSA To Spy On All But 4 Countries
The head prick was quoted as saying: "Collect it all." Setting aside the obvious immorality and illegality of their actions (and ignoring all the apologists and their fig leafs), just focus on the stupidity of this approach. What good is having the worlds' best spooks looking for wheat if they are buried under metric tons of chaff?
Unless, of course, the real reason was to golden parachute into cushy, six-figure per month consulting gigs to supplement their Federal retirement packages.
