Securing the US Electrical Grid

rezme Re:Great way to waste your money (116 comments)

How in the hell did you take an article on power security down this racist rabbit hole? The country is 63% white and 12% black. Where are you seeing that whites are disappearing?

T-Mobile To Throttle Customers Who Use Unlimited LTE Data For Torrents/P2P

rezme Re:In before (147 comments)

No, what they advertise is unlimited data from the phone. What they don't say is that once you hit 10 gb of 4g download on that "unlimited" plan, you have unlimited edge service. That said, I'm an extremely heavy data user and have only run up against that cap once in the 4 years I've been with them.

Ford, GM Sued Over Vehicles' Ability To Rip CD Music To Hard Drive

rezme Re:Time Shifting? (317 comments)

If that were the case, the ruling regarding computers being legal would be invalid. You would have to disregard the computer since the CDRom drive is capable of ripping music. Even given that the entertainment system is capable of ripping CDs, the fact that it's called an "infotainment system" gives the primary purpose right there. Providing information and entertainment. The system isn't marketed as a "CD Ripping system", it's just touted as one possible feature of the infotainment system.

Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet

rezme Re:Black box data streaming (503 comments)

It's satellite based. My father did some of the work on the code that handles transitioning between satellites and ground stations as the plane travels the globe. Basically, the plane talks to a satellite, and the satellite hands the connection off to a ground station. As the plane moves, different satellites come into range while others pass out of it. The connection is transferred between the satellites during the trip.

Airbus Patents Windowless Cockpit That Would Increase Pilots' Field of View

rezme Re:Failsafe? (468 comments)

"Deadstick" landings can, and do, happen with controls that are "wired to high heaven". That's pretty hard to pull off when you can't see the runway.

Android Wear Is Here

Replying again to the proper comment

It doesn't have a cellular radio and neither do that tablets.

Might be crazy, but I'm seeing nothing here but a grammatical error

TSA Prohibits Taking Discharged Electronic Devices Onto Planes

rezme Re:Christmas is coming early this year (702 comments)

And yet they still didn't manage to catch the "shoe bomb" until it was on the plane and the idiot was attempting to "activate" it. Kneejerk security precautions are what got us into this ridiculous situation in the first place. Within a decade we'll likely have to show up to the ticket boarding counter 4 hours early, stark naked, without a scrap of luggage, simply to endure a body cavity search from Helga the 6'6" 350lb surly TSA agent prior to being allowed on the plane.

U.S. Supreme Court Upholds Religious Objections To Contraception

rezme Re:A win for freedom (1330 comments)

I might have been a bit vague on that point. What I was saying was that the only way Hobby Lobby is morally justified in excluding choices for its employees is in the case that it is paying 100% for insurance with no employee contributions. If the employee contributes (which is probably the case) then they should have a say in what gets excluded or allowed. It's not just Hobby Lobby's money at play here. The employees are likely paying through the nose for insurance even with the employer subsidy.
