Google Explains Why WebView Vulnerability Will Go Unpatched On Android 4.3
Google wants more licenses on devices. Carriers, device makers want to sell more devices.
So, google doesn't patch an older OS, the carriers & phone makers say the update won't work
on their devices, freaking out people and making it easier to sell them a new device...Google,
the carriers, the manufacturers win.
Plan C: The Cold War Plan Which Would Have Brought the US Under Martial Law
For the last 60 years, the government has been planning and tweaking this plan.
All they need is a massive disaster, war, civil unrest to "allow" the government to implement
this. Take away our bill of rights, cancel habeas corpus, and put (illegal according to the constitution)
federal police who answer to NO ONE but the government. Local police will be subjugated and if they
don't comply, they will be locked up also. Anyone that has been on a watch list, written "subversive"
things about the government, all gun owners (why do you think they want EVERY firearm registered)
will be rounded up and sent to a (education) camp. The internet as we know it, will go away, all newspapers,
radio, television will be strictly regulated, all "news" will be released only after a government censor approves
Obama: Gov't Shouldn't Be Hampered By Encrypted Communications
"Bush did it too" people to speak up.
Yeah he did, and so did pretty much every president for the last 50 years or more.
Innocent Adults Are Easy To Convince They Committed a Serious Crime
BUT, investigators use all sorts of psy-ops on people to get them to confess to something.
BEFORE any questioning, they must read you your rights (at least in the USA)...
The part of "you have the right to remain silent", DO IT! Never answer any questioning
until you get an attorney, EVEN if you are 100% innocent. Once your rights are read, and
you say something, it is possible for them to build a case. Remember...those people sitting
on a jury are the ones that couldn't figure out how to get out of jury duty. Do you want THEM
to decide your fate?
Feds Operated Yet Another Secret Metadata Database Until 2013
We had way more privacy, before the advent of computers. Hey, I started with electronics as a hobby
in the very early 70's as a kid, worked on televisions as a teenager, graduated from college with a degree
in electronics, spent some time at TI in Houston, built all of my own computers, ham radio operator, so I
LOVE technology & gadgets, but, with the advancement of said technology, we've seen a more than proportional
drop in our privacy. With governments (at least in the USA, I have no idea about other countries), it is so much
easier to ILLEGALLY collect data, but just scooping up EVERYTHING, and running it through server farms (like the
huge one out west that takes so much water to keep cool, something the west doesn't have a lot of anyway), and
then something pops out, and they will use THAT as a basic to get a warrant to "legally" spy on someone. In the
USA, it's to the point that you are guilty, until proven innocent, and you have to exhaust all of your money & time
to prove otherwise. Considering the unlimited resources the government has, that is a very hard task.
And in some cases, WE are partially to blame. Fire up pretty much any app on a mobile device, because you want
to find something, an address, an item, and we willfully "allow app to know your location". This is saved in a database,
"for your convenience", so they can push things of interest to you. Oh how nice! All the while, you know good and well,
the government is somewhere saving all of this, and using it for whatever means "they" find necessary. I know it would
wreck civilization, but sometimes I wonder if the human race would be partially better off if an EMP due to the sun popped
Cuba's Pending Tech Revolution
Car collectors dribbling all over themselves, at the chance to get their hands on some vintage
automobiles from the 50's through early 60's.
From what I have read, the Cuban's have become pretty creative at making parts from scratch, for
cars they cannot get parts for. I'm sure some of them will try to find their way over here, as vintage
autobody/mechanics, since if they lifted the hood on a modern car, it would be like having the Wright
Brothers, looking at a jet engine of today.
IEEE: New H-1B Bill Will "Help Destroy" US Tech Workforce
The lack of common sense intelligence of most USA 15-30 year olds, who have the attention span of a squirrel, who can't
put their stupid smartphones down for 10 seconds, WHAT workforce is there in the USA to worry about?
Tesla vs. Car Dealers: the Lobbyist Went Down To Georgia
I hope Tesla wins as well!
Rare Recalled NES Game Stadium Events On Ebay For $99,000
One mans junk, is another mans treasure...I guess
Fewer Grants For Young Researchers Causing Brain Drain In Academia
Maybe cut out some of the silly grants, the ones you see all the time like why Popsicle's melt in July, and
why water freezes in Alaska or the sexual habits of some silly fly.
How about REAL needed grants and cut out some of the silly crap.
Is Kitkat Killing Lollipop Uptake?
I'd blame the carriers, more than the laziness of people. Most of the time, the carrier, for obvious reason, or manufacturer, will delay or not update
the device, to talk you into updating to a new device, with the update already installed.
Finding Genghis Khan's Tomb From Space
That is what I call the former history channel...pickers, pawn, axe men, ice road truckers, all that other "non" reality garbage.
ONCE in a great while, that will have an actual HISTORY show, but rarely.
I knew the jig was up a few years ago when they started saying "history is made everyday"
About the only time I tune to that channel, discovery, learning, is when they rerun an old series or by some miracle have
something OTHER than this made up so called reality crap.
Ask Slashdot: Are Progressive Glasses a Mistake For Computer Users?
I'm in my mid 50's. I started wearing glasses at 8 years old due to "lazy eye". I made it to 44 before I was forced to wear bifocals.
My dad had trouble with progressive bifocals, and I heard a lot of people having problems with them. Since I did a lot of work using
a computer screen (volunteer 911 operator for over a dozen years) and personal use of a computer, I went with the standard "line"
bifocals. Now, in my mid 50's, what works the best for me is I went to the expense of getting a mechanical swing arm, to mount the
monitor. When I'm working with the computer, I keep the monitor around 12-14" away from my face and don't have to do the up down
neck thing. Plus, to keep me from being "tunnel vision" focused on one spot, I move the monitor arm a few inches every so often to
force my eyes to focus for a different focal length. For me anyway, I find the occurrence of headaches after a prolonged time, a lot
Box Office 2014: Moviegoing Hits Two-Decade Low
1. Stop producing part 4,5,6 movies. How about something ORIGINAL
2. CGI & special effects won't negate a POOR SCRIPT.
3. Why would I want to pay that much in a theater (or theatre) for something
I can watch on Netflix, Hulu, Redbox a month or two later for almost nothing.
4. With the advent of home theaters (or theatres), I can download/buy/torrent/rent
the movie, pop my own popcorn, drink whatever I want, not have to drive to see it.
Maybe if the movie "industry" would try to fix 1 & 2, more people would go to see what
The Coming Decline of 'Made In China'
Moving to Africa, to escape the "high wages" of China.
5,200 Days Aboard ISS, and the Surprising Reason the Mission Is Still Worthwhile
It all comes from the same pile, which is the American taxpayer.
5,200 Days Aboard ISS, and the Surprising Reason the Mission Is Still Worthwhile
Yeah, unlike the billions given to ILLEGAL aliens, wefare queens so they can continue to pop out more & more children. The "welfare" et al budget is many times that of Veterans, military, senior citizens payouts. Both parties in some part stopped long ago doing "the business of the country", and instead, concentrated on doing whatever keeps them in power.
Finn Linked To Lizard Squad Christmas Attack
With people exposing security flaws, BUT when they do it for self gratification, I do. If there was a problem, they should have notified the network owner, worked with them to correct it. Perhaps they did, & Sony told them to buzz off, so they said... Ok, watch this.
Newest Stealth Fighter's Ground Attack Sensors 10 Years Behind Older Jets'
F-35, as with the V-22 Osprey should have never been built, but due to well placed people in Congress, are forced onto the military because it brings home the bacon and jobs, which translates into VOTES. The A-10 costs tons less & is a proven ground attack platform, not to mention more survivable.
Dish Pulls Fox News, Fox Business Network As Talks Break Down
Do people actually watch (pick one: ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, CNN)? I thought it was sort of a parody thing.
