Comcast Allegedly Asking Customers to Stop Using Tor

There's a difference between using the TOR browser and running a relay.

Sapphire Glass Didn't Pass iPhone Drop Test According to Reports

koan more likely a cost issue (202 comments)

Apple has to start making all their stuff super cheap now, (keep them shareholders happy) weld the RAM jn their macbooks, back to plastic cases because they can't have NF without, and maybe start to pay attention to security.
A parade of failures.

Gather all biometrics and do it from children so they grow up used to it, and sell it to the parents as "convinience and safety" .

High School Student Builds Gun That Unlocks With Your Fingerprint

koan It's nothing new (582 comments)

It is unreliable, only a fool would carry a weapon that has these sorts of "safety" features attached.
When it comes to defending yourself the simpler the better, if you can't control the situation or your weapon don't carry one to start with.

This article is filler.

Massive Study Searching For Genes Behind Intelligence Finds Little

They just aren't very good at finding things.

Start with that bit and then Google the genetic studies in Israel, read the papers and you too will see it is clearly genetic.

At least some of the smartest people in the World think so.

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011

koan koan writes  |  more than 2 years ago

koan (80826) writes "The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011, introduced by Rep. Mike Rogers and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, allows companies or the government free rein to bypass existing laws in order to monitor communications, filter content, or potentially even shut down access to online services for "cybersecurity purposes." Companies are encouraged to share data with the government and with one another, and the government can share data in return. The idea is to facilitate detection of and defense against a serious cyber threat, but the language is so broad it could be used as a blunt instrument to attack websites like The Pirate Bay or WikiLeaks"
