Ad Tracking: Is Anything Being Done?

morphotomy Re:Wear the tin foil hat (303 comments)

We should write a chrome extension that detects the unique identifiers we all have in our tracking cookies and trades them between users. Their data would be useless after that.

Ad Tracking: Is Anything Being Done?

morphotomy Re:Wear the tin foil hat (303 comments)

Good design !== makes money. Which one do you think most sites are going to lean toward. I hate to break it to you but the majority of development is so far off from a programmer fantasy it can be considered gore. And thats not changing anytime soon.

Brendan Eich Steps Down As Mozilla CEO

morphotomy This is intolerance (1746 comments)

Whatever he believes, should we not tolerate that? Why should he be shunned for having a particular viewpoint? Do we want to live in a society where people are persecuted for their beliefs?

Security for the 'Internet of Things' (Video)

morphotomy Re:Here's how to secure your "Internet of things" (106 comments)

Think about it. You leave a pork loin in the oven before you leave for work. The oven refrigerates the meat until it's time to cook it, so its ready when you get home. You get stuck at the office. You send a text to your oven to slow the cook time by an hour.

You Might Rent Features & Options On Cars In the Future

morphotomy Re:Shit. (437 comments)

For the heating elements, you just need to cut into the seat and run a current across it. If its present, it cannot be securely disabled.

You Might Rent Features & Options On Cars In the Future

morphotomy Re:Qui Bono? (437 comments)

I really dislike the trend of buying products but being restricted in how we can modify them. When warranties are involved, the manufacturer should have some say to prevent you from wrecking your car. But when they start throwing DMCA suits against you, that's when you know when it has gone too far.

Maybe this will be the example the lawmakers need to see how ridiculous their policies are.

I'm sure ripping the wires out of the floor and running your seat warmer won't mess with your insurance. What are you even getting at?

Isn't there a provision in the license stating the software cannot be used for weapons purposes or something of the like?

morphotomy Re:Soviet Russia jokes overload (320 comments)

The hard part is making Nietzsche jokes that don't have terrifying implications in the real world. Like the Daily Show.

Verizon Offers Refunds For Fraudulent SMS Messages

morphotomy Verizon handled this pretty well in my oppinion (55 comments)

A few years back, I got slammed with something like this when I stupidly let someone use my number cause they didnt have a phone. After calling Verizon, they refunded my money and put something on my account to block the possibility of me being signed into any of this shit ever again.
