Private Data On iOS Devices Not So Private After All
No, you can't retrieve anything from my computers in that way even with my root password.
The encryption keys are my own and I have full control over them.
In the TFA case, apple has control over your keys.
Favorite "Go!" Phrase?
I second this!
Ask Slashdot: Future-Proof Jobs?
will be in demand as long as we have computer that can break.
If someone invents a completely self programming, self healing, self building computer then maybe not.
Even if that happens I think you would need system operators for even these machines as someone has to tell them what to do even if it's only by spoken word or brain waves or whatever is the current input method.
Ask Slashdot: Switching From SAS To Python Or R For Data Analysis and Modeling?
Personally at least.
I used to work in one of the largest banks in the world, and everything we did was SAS/MSSQL.
I had some personal stuff in R, but most of the other analysts didn't seem too interested except using what I made for them except for one phd in the German department. I never pushed it though since there was so much legacy code, including code I had written my self.
Now I have switched to a start-up bank, and I am the only analyst.
I've used R/RStudio/Shiny with PostgreSQL in the back very successfully, with all code in git. Now I can bring good analysis forth much faster than I used to in SAS that can be viewed on any device with the option of downloading the source data in excel and csv.
The management loves this.
If you show them a few good ones they will want more, but I wouldn't start to rewrite all the legacy code. SAS isn't bad when you have it set up properly.
But another good thing about R is that you get access to innovation in the statistics fields faster, and you don't have to pay huge sums of money for extra features.
RStudio and Shiny is a bit expensive for the pro versions, but nothing compared to SAS, and the open source versions are free.
Overkill? LG Phone Has 2560x1440 Display, Laser Focusing
And it was true.
The internet in the early 90s was _slow_.
I didn't get cable with 10 mbit until 1996ish, and even that was slow!
Apple Reportedly In Talks With Comcast For Separate Apple Streaming Path
Are we still dealing with metering on regular internet connections?
We have that here on 4g broadband services, I think the last time I checked, you could get 100 GB 4g up to 80 mbit broadband for $100 a month.
But I prefer 100/100 mbit unmetered fiber for the same price though :)
Measuring the Xbox One Against PCs With Titanfall
35 GB takes me 47 minutes to download on this 100/100 connection.
Fiber is becoming the standard, so I don't think it would be a big deterrent.
I would actually be more concerned about the space it would hog on my SSD drives ;)
Valve Open Sources Their DirectX To OpenGL Layer
And the reason those 20% still use it is because of company lock-in / legacy web apps.
Even my almost 70 year old mother is on Firefox without me being involved.
KDE Releases Calligra Suite 2.8
It's the old KOffice.
Krita is probably the most usefull of the apps and I've already replaced GIMP with it, however the rest are also slowly maturing :)
Ask Slashdot: Does Your Employer Perform HTTPS MITM Attacks On Employees?
Here in Norway they go even further, and the company is not allowed to read your email if it is put in a folder clearly marked private.
Personally I keep my private and work emails in separate systems, but it seems that a lot of people are using their work email for private stuff.

I realize this was not meant to be funny, but serious.
Apple Launches CarPlay At Geneva Show
If it supports full BT 4.0 and all the relevant protocols, and none of the features in the dash will refuse to run because the phone is unsupported then I guess there won't be much complaining.
Considering how apple has handled open standards in the past, I suspect this will not be the case though.
But we'll see soon.
Apple Launches CarPlay At Geneva Show
There is one here.
I would never ever buy a car with apple in the dash, but I can afford these cars.
About 6/10 in my office has android phones, 2/10 has windows phones and the rest are on iphones. This is a bank in a country where iphone adoption is considered very high.
So unless they make it work with other devices, they lost a bunch of other potential customers that I know of too.
US Carriers Said To Have Rejected Kill Switch Technology Last Year
It's not remote brick though which is described here, but we have that already through IMEI blacklisting.
Open Source Video Editor Pitivi Seeks Crowdfunding to Reach 1.0
I'm using it all the time :)
Most of the "professional" features are there, you have tons of filters and exporting is really easy although I usually export to qp 0 h264 and then encode it myself using ffmpeg/x264.
It seems that it is using the same libraries though so I might be able to do it from within now too.
Anyway.. I'm never paying for another video editor as long as Kdenlive is maintained.
Routers Pose Biggest Security Threat To Home Networks
Got to love competition mandated by law.
In my area, 15 minutes from the closest city which has about 60.000 inhabitants, I have about 20 providers competing on fiber, cable and copper. You can also toss in a few 4g providers that sell broadband you can carry around.
I settled for fiber 100/100 with tv and phone for $100 a month. It's not the cheapest, but I'm hooked on the speed :)
They also provide ipv6 and "bridge mode routers" with a fixed ipv4 address for my own router and a /62 ipv6 prefix.
We used to have a public telephone company called Telenor, but after it became private it came with the catch that all competitors can buy capacity from them at cost + investment write-offs. It's been working wonders.
NVIDIA Launches GTX 750 Ti With New Maxwell Architecture
What else would you use an amd card for?
I you want to game and/or use linux with any performance and stability you need a nvidia card.
Intel integrated gpu works fine for linux though if you don't need the performance,
Dear Asus Router User: All Your Cloud Are Belong To Us
Got to agree here, my N66U is flying with shibbys tomato.
I can't really figure out why one would want to put hard drives on the edge device, but still the custom firmware is best.
And the hardware of these devices are excellent :)
Whatever Happened To the IPv4 Address Crisis?
My fiber ISP provides 6rd connectivity with a /62 prefix address space, and will bump it to /54 when they implement dual-stack on all systems.
There are still legacy routers on the system apparently.
However tomato on my rt-n66u handles the 6rd just fine.
A lot of systems are on ipv6 already, and I think I have around 50/50 ipv6 and ipv4 traffic now. There is no real difference in use for a regular user. Even all the phones, tables and the chromecast use it without me having to do anything except connecting the router.
I still have a regular fixed ip for ipv4, but all my devices are behind nat.
Death Hovers Politely For Americans' Swipe-and-Sign Credit Cards
The US is behind because no one have ever trusted your banks. Even the FED is 7 different units to make sure there is no central authority.
It's also why the US has the one of the largest cash to card ratios in the world.
