Apple Can Extract Texts, Photos, Contacts From Locked iPhones

foxx1337 This doesn't say much about Apple in fact. (202 comments)

Taking apart an iPhone 4(S) is fairly straightforward and the various connectors on the boards inside appear to be pretty much "standard". The various flavors of 5 shouldn't be too far off. I would expect some levels of the law enforcement to even have the know-how and equipment to connect to those ports and access an iPhone's internals beyond the device's standard operation - and I don't think it's anything wrong with that. By the user experience it seems that the iPhone's memory is not scrambled.
Assuming anyone would use that, at least we can hope now that such an expensive phone will still be functional when the process is done.

GNOME 3.10 Released

foxx1337 Re:Software (218 comments)

I can already see myself googling around "Files crashing", "Software command line", "troubleshoot Disks" and finding immediately what I was looking for. These guys with Gnome really mean business. I bet their names are something like "Dude Johnson", "Nobody Smith", "Programmer Williams", "Name Thorne" or "Guy Pearce" (ok, not the last one).

WW2 Vet Sent 300,000 Pirated DVDs To Troops In Iraq, Afghanistan

foxx1337 Re:Well that's okay (650 comments)

A crime is a crime. Stealing is a crime. Pirating is stealing. Your argument is invalid. Probably the German population watched Hitler's atrocities with the same eye you're casting over this man's deeds back in the day, when they couldn't know any better.

Ask Slashdot: What Would Real Space Combat Look Like?

foxx1337 Capital ship FTW (892 comments)

No lasers, no torpedoes, no explosions. 1 capital "ship" with a "warp engine". The engine would "consume" the space occupied by the enemy, then assemble them as photons and Hydrogen left in the "trail".

so 90% of users have the computer mostly for online activity
remaining 10% of them have something to do with it while offilne (music, games, movies)

remains that those 90% can't be soft-pirates, since all they do is so tightly tied to online; there are 2 stages: 1 take part in some torrent swarm, requires online presence and 2 - actually consume the illegaly obatained media, perfectly done offline

all this yadda yadda with The Network, The Grid, The Matrix and everything... might and won't pfft
