Will Cameras Replace Sideview Mirrors On Cars In 2018?

g0bshiTe Re:nope! (496 comments)

And the largest component that consumes gas and hp, THE AC!

I had a Geo Metro I really miss that car. Couldn't hardly get out of it's own way from a standstill at a stop light, but once you got em rolling they really rolled. Mine would shake like Scotty was pushing it warp 9 until it got over 90 mph then it smoothed right out. $4 in gas would get me back and forth to work for a week.

Time Dilation Drug Could Let Heinous Criminals Serve 1,000 Year Sentences

g0bshiTe Life Imitates Art (914 comments)

Nearly sounds like the plot of Dredd, sort of.

The drug of choice was called Slo-mo and altered ones perception of time. In one scene it made someone falling from a height that would have taken maybe 20 seconds seem like hours.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one reading this and thinking "zero day exploit campaign".

You would think the FBI would be well beyond using Skiddie exploits though.

Man Exhonerated in Child Porn Case

g0bshiTe g0bshiTe writes  |  more than 5 years ago

g0bshiTe writes "Security Focus has a write up about a Boston man had his company issued laptop taken away by the company when a spike in the billing of his internet usage to the box was noticed. Upon inspection child pornography was found in the temporary internet cache, and he was fired. When the incident was reported to authorities, the prosecution and the defense both agreed that the porn was a result of his employers "lack of security features" on the laptop. All charges were dropped.
Even though he was not responsible, how do you recover from this. Imagine losing your job, your family, respect, not to mention the little gaff from the Boston Herald. This is reporting at it s finest, this man's life could be ruined though he was guilty of nothing but having this story break on a slow news day."
