Americans Uncomfortable With Possibility of Ubiquitous Drones, Designer Babies
I don't give a fuck about personal ones - but the government use of drones will lead to more intrusion on our lives, more spying, more death and destruction.
The Internet of Things and Humans
And websites can't even communicate with one another efficiently or at all.
Yet, IoT advocates imagine within a few short years this magical IoT will create a system of intercommunicating hardware that will somehow work perfectly.
Jenny McCarthy: "I Am Not Anti-Vaccine'"
But she wouldn't shut her cock holster for awhile about it. Now she is trying to rewrite history about how stupid she was so she doesn't appear to be a total fuckwit.
I assume her limited acting engagements got even smaller when film studios realized how badly most people didn't like her because of her anti-vaccine views, putting everyone at risk because she is a moron. So, now that money isn't coming in, time to reframe your argument.
Double Take: Condoleezza Rice As Dropbox's Newest Board Member
Everyone would be falling over their dicks if it were Hillary and not Rice to support her as a good idea.
Study: People That Think Social Media Helps Their Work Are Probably Wrong
If you use it right. Pickup a ton of industry info for what I am doing, connect with people who are in the same space. Easy connect with people interested in things I am doing.
Facebook is a waste of time simply because Facebook neuters your ability to reach people if you don't pay - but so far Twitter is pretty decent.
Vint Cerf: CS Programs Must Change To Adapt To Internet of Things
You teach core and theory and you apply it to whatever the current fad is. It is preposterous for a computer science program to be geared directly to some "thing" that is currently popular or will be.
College is about learning theory and how to apply it, it isn't a vocational program.
OKCupid Warns Off Mozilla Firefox Users Over Gay Rights
Fuck off and die.
Not using Firefox will change nothing.
They're Reading Your Mail: Microsoft's ToS, Windows 8 Leak, and Snooping
Here is to Microsofts shit ad campaign "Scroogled" - first they snoop on all Skype communication and now they admit to reading emails LOOKING for things.
I fully expect the daft ad men at Microsoft to continue their pathetic ad campaign.
Glass houses and all that.
Startup Employees As an Organized Labor Group
Please. If you want to go work at a startup, you accept the risks of working at a startup. I've known plenty of people that tried to swing it at a startup and ran back to their previous jobs a month later because it didn't go as planned.
Startups are RISKY. That is the risk/reward. If you want to take low pay in return for stock, then pay a lawyer to make sure your options are worth something.
I've heard the pitches before "We will pay you half your current salary, but the risk is worth the reward!" - please - I am not a partner so there will be no big reward. Get fucked.
Want something that pays decent and you won't work 80 hours a week? Find a stable job at a firm thats been around for awhile.
Earth Barely Dodged Solar Blast In 2012
Yeah, because politicians have real long term goals, you know with having to get elected ever 2-6 years. They really plan for the future. rofl
Full-Disclosure Security List Suspended Indefinitely
Name the names. Sorry, I simply don't buy the reasoning at all. If the problems were so bad you want to "stop it all together" then you indicate who that person is.
A Call For Rollbacks To Previous Versions of Software
The adults are talking here, pipe down.
A Call For Rollbacks To Previous Versions of Software
Not even that, lets say you have a "Cloud" based App. You have to maintain your APIs on the server so they are backwards compatible.
We've rolled out around 16 updates in 16 months for our software. New features, bug fixes, etc. While even our X.0 software will work with the API in X.16, it takes a lot of work to ensure that you are backwards compatible.
Eventually we will break that, but it isn't all that trivial, especially for a small team.
Prominent GitHub Engineer Julie Ann Horvath Quits Citing Harrassment
Your failure to see the problem with the wife having any influence inside the walls of the building indicates you clearly have no idea what you are talking about.
Top E-commerce Sites Fail To Protect Users From Stupid Passwords
I've seen Bank of America (no longer know if this is true) specify "password must be between 8-16 characters."
Why would you set a ceiling - unless you are storing them in plain text...
Facebook To Pay City $200K-a-Year For a Neighborhood Cop
When they are fully funded by taxes alone. Please, it is virtually impossible to get rid of any police officer for anything. Look at the CA Dorner case. Police shot at two cars of innocent people and nothing happened to them - at all. And people worry about this. Bullshit.
Ask Slashdot: Does Your Employer Perform HTTPS MITM Attacks On Employees?
Using company hardware and resources to do anything is stupid in 2014.
Want to read your personal email, chat, facebook? Use a phone or tablet.
Why Your Phone Gets OTA Updates But Your Car Doesn't
Consider that updates are done via firmware that is downloaded and stored on computers at local dealerships (They aren't downloading the updates for every single car they update).
How difficult would it be for any moderately skilled hacker to compromise those machines to side load along with the updates?
So the idea that the dealer is somehow safer, is purely insane.
Ask Slashdot: Should I Get Google Glass?
We bought two pair for our company to play with. I have one and my business partner has another.
The only real use we have had for them is taking videos and pictures of our kids. Don't get me wrong, they are FANTASTIC for that.
But both of us really can't find the use for them, other than a cool method of capturing video. Not $1500 worthy, wait for the commercial version.
Healthcare Organizations Under Siege From Cyberattacks, Study Says
We are a healthcare startup and we get the usual metasploit attacks, but more important we are phished like crazy.
The information is valuable and because it is, healthcare firm staff will be easy pickings for being targets.
They simply don't know what they are doing (for instance, there is a 90% chance your doctor is using SMS/MMS to communicate about patients)
