Uber Suspends Australian Transport Inspector Accounts To Block Stings

cheekyboy google can tell govt, do what we say (299 comments)

Do what google says, or they will make your govt and country invisible on the neti, get no tourists.

Aussie taxies suck too btw.

Useless and OVER PRICED.

Charging so called night rates up to 9am. Thats FRAUD, its NOT NIGHT time between 6am and 9am.

They just classify it as expensive night rates, to sting all business travelers in the mornings.

I call the taxi regulators fraudsters.

The Interview Bombs In US, Kills In China, Threatens N. Korea

cheekyboy USBs are smuggled like cocain in NK (288 comments)

Yes up your butthole, or swallowed.

But data is being sneaker netted everywhere in NK, there are docos to show how they do it.

How do they get it in? Well, even the ones in the military smuggle stuff in, actually, they are the ones most often with the money and friends outside who can do it.

Eventually, it trickles down to the ultra poor, who might want that USB stick more desperately than food, it at least can be copied/traded for food.

There are a few cities that are one side china, one side NK. I am sure they have smuggled 3G devices in so people in NK can download from China. Put USBs on drones or baloons, or floated.

Sony Reportedly Is Using Cyber-Attacks To Keep Leaked Files From Spreading

cheekyboy Re:Is SONY breaking the law with this "defense"? (190 comments)

No
Sony execs have been sacking lots of writers/artists/3d anims just to save another $100m, and yet they are still making $600m per $1000m spent on movies. They dont need to make MORE profits.

The execs of sony are greedy scum that want nothing but 100000000% profits, based on zero expenses for zero effort on their behalf.

You're Doing It All Wrong: Solar Panels Should Face West, Not South

cheekyboy Re:obviously they should track the sun (327 comments)

Just use the new method of bouncing 80% of light in between the windows layers, and have the photocell detectors at the edge of the windows.

1. reduced heat inside home, built in tinting.
2. transparent windows that create power.

Works no matter what angle.

New Book Argues Automation Is Making Software Developers Less Capable

cheekyboy dev world vs medical world (212 comments)

In the dev world, we are required to do all things from R&D , BA, coding, testing, tech writing.

In the medical world, the ops table has 12 people each with minor specialization.

Imagine if there was one doctor doing the prep, drugs, cleaning, cutting, sewing up, the works.

What People Want From Smart Homes

cheekyboy smarttv will be the control hub (209 comments)

As smart tvs get better and more capable, built in wifi/bt android OS etc...

They will be the control hubs of the home, they will IP chat to your consoles, or PCs, or wifi lights, anything. Even running the apps when tv is off (no power even, with 2 AA batteries to keep running during outages/storms)

Of course the korean companies will all talk to each other. Sony will make something totally custom and 3x the cost.
China will make it on every tv, but with poor security.
