Obama Administration Says the World's Servers Are Ours

arbiter1 Re: Maybe, maybe not. (749 comments)

Well any country you do business in you technically are subject to the laws of that country so even if they are based in china but operate a regional HQ or even a small mom and pops size store you pretty much subject to same thing. They can't go and take said servers but they can serve a warrant and make the company turn over the data.

arbiter1 i would rather pay more for.... (122 comments)

I would rather get one the tiny boards from company like AAEON you can drop a super low power i3 or i5 intel haswell cpu in to. Yea cost more then this but it will play anything I throw at it. Before anyone says that this will to, well since relies on a hardware decoder for most its work, problem I have is I have a lot of media that is 10bit color space which likely that hardware decoder will be useless with. example: http://www.aaeon.com/en/p/3-an...

Rightscorp Pushing ISPs To Disconnect Repeat Infringers

arbiter1 Re:Maintain DMCA safe harbor? (92 comments)

Its pretty easy, all they gotta prove to the court is the ISP is allowing piracy to happen on their network and not taken any "reasonable" action to stop it. As for what is reasonable is the question. If court finds they haven't done enough then they can be held financially liable for what end users do. They tried it against google for videos on youtube, hence how they got backdoor access to delete shit with almost no oversight.

Mass. Supreme Court Says Defendant Can Be Compelled To Decrypt Data

arbiter1 Re:I lost the password (560 comments)

Well the safe is different since its a physical object with a physical lock and/or key. The key for encrypted data is stored in your head which the 4th protects against data stored in your head. But that has been attacked a ton recently.

$3000 GeForce GTX TITAN Z Tested, Less Performance Than $1500 R9 295X2

arbiter1 Re:crossfire/sli compatability (151 comments)

Most games support it but not always take full advantage of SLI/CF. Titan was more focus on low cost option as they said for people that need the double precision. As you see in that test 2x 780TI is 200$ cheaper and got some OC to it.
