US Gov't Issues Alert About iOS "Masque Attack" Threat

mikes.song Retaliation (98 comments)

Apple, took a look at it's bottom line, and had to call the government on their BS. This is the retaliation.

Install some others source with your own cert, and it can cause issues.

Apple's issue, if there is one, would be shipping a device with working encryption.

Ebola Nose Spray Vaccine Protects Monkeys

mikes.song Re:Technicalities (198 comments)

I would advise you to go back to your course components on non-parametric and Baysean statistics.

Because a study isn't ideal (and I am not saying that small studies like this are ideal) does not mean that they are devoid of useful information. If you don't understand statistics well enough to use that information, then that's fine. But your incomprehension does not give you the right to go around accusing other people of fraud in a public place.

That sounds like I would say if I was running a fraudulent study.

Ebola Nose Spray Vaccine Protects Monkeys

mikes.song Re:Technicalities (198 comments)

Excuse the brevity, but if there's not enough resources to do a proper study, then why publish results? The results are bogus because of the sample size. At the end of the day, nine is not a sample; it's still a fraud. Publishing it as if it means anything is even more of a fraud. Coming on here to defend it is just silly.

Ebola Nose Spray Vaccine Protects Monkeys

mikes.song Re:Technicalities (198 comments)

I really hope you are paid to write that dribble.

Between all the name calling, I gather your point as expense of a medial trail being too expensive.

Because, come on... a trial with only nine subjects is not a trial... it's simply a fraud. Even, in the US you need a jury twelve to get a criminal conviction.

Like I care about the chimps... I care about humans. How many of those people get dosed for each monkey in your bogus-trial?

It's 100% effective with a 100% margin of error.

A sample size of nine isn't a study; it's a fraud.

Russia Takes Down Steve Jobs Memorial After Apple's Tim Cook Comes Out

mikes.song The Answer is Subversion (Not the RCS) (430 comments)

If you really want to know, and you should want to know, then watch this video from a KGB agent that defected to the US just to explain this issue.

Basically the way it's explained, Russian's don't hate gays, and liberals won't protect them. They just see the gay movement as more of a way to attack the existing power structure. Is Clay Aiken really good for NC, or is he Chicken Little, setup on an issued that is only designed to get Chicken Little elected?

US Marshals Accidentally Reveal Potential Bidders For Gov't-Seized Bitcoin

mikes.song Re:A planned failure (101 comments)

I'm not so sure. I'm thinking that Hanlon's Razor [wikipedia.org] should be applied here.

The corollary? Nothing is provable; everything is permissible.

Your adage is one of a pushover. You are a sucker, and you promote being one.

Google Store Sends User Information To App Developers

mikes.song Re:"Flaw"? (269 comments)

If you could explain the difference between need and want, I would not have to explain to you that as a business man, I don't need your address, I just want it.

Google Store Sends User Information To App Developers

mikes.song Re:"Flaw"? (269 comments)

This! I've sold software on Google Checkout/Wallet since day one, and always expect/demand customers data. I would like to get data from iOS sales too! This developer needs to get a job.

Ask Slashdot: Making Side-Money As a Programmer?

mikes.song Re:Not necessarily (257 comments)

I paid for my MacMini, iPhone 3G, and phone service on my first day in the iTunes AppStore. But, that was in 2009. Now, you really have to have polished software to compete. That doesn't mean you can't make a business out of it; it means you won't likely do it overnight, or without a CS degree and a design team.

PayPal Preparing To Address Frozen Funds Policy

mikes.song Re:Too Late (175 comments)

The chargeback rate on PayPal is much higher than that of a standard merchant account. This is specifically because of fraud. I've done business with Google Checkout since day one, if if there's a chargeback, you can get a contact with a real person from Google, and they will not protect fraud.

Congressman Introduces Bill To Ban Minting of Trillion-Dollar Coin

mikes.song Re:Can't America get its acts together ? (1059 comments)

Nonsense! The platinum coin is the perfect solution to fractional reserve accounting.

Why don't you face reality. They allocate x amount of money. They charge 3-5% interest on it. And, all the money they allocated has to be paid back. It's a ponzi scheme. It's a ponzi scheme by definition. The debt is not ment to be paid back; it's ment to keep you enslaved.

This is the perfect way to pay them back. It's not a legal loophole.

Researcher: Interdependencies Could Lead To Cloud 'Meltdowns'

mikes.song So (93 comments)

Ford compared this scenario to the intertwining, complex relationships and structures that helped contribute to the global financial crisis.

Cloud computing is like fractional reserve accounting, with artificially low interest rates?
