Well, if you are a fucking twit that does not know anything, just close your damn facebook account, stop seeing reality shows and sell your TV. The world does not gravitate around you and your ignorance.

Indian Woman Sues Uber In the US Over Alleged New Delhi Taxi Rape

ruir Re:Uber is still safer than taking the bus (234 comments)

Do not be a political correct ass. The situation is so bad in india it is splashed all over the news. White woman complain regularly they cannot travel in indian cities alone without being at least groped, and even when not alone is problematic. So fuck the "stereotypes" about a nation of retards, truth is to be told.

Wi-Fi Issues Continue For OS X Users Despite Updates

ruir Re:Problem may be with router too (114 comments)

Nah, not that. Same problem here, it could take 1-2 minutes to get wifi in Mac hardware. The thing is the new Airport supports 5GHz. Note that I routinely disable IP v6 in my Macs just in case.

Indian Woman Sues Uber In the US Over Alleged New Delhi Taxi Rape

ruir Re:The crime happened to an Indian in India. (234 comments)

Actually a company I worked for had such clausule, any dispute/lawsuit has to be conducted on our home town (where all the courts are on their pocket). Luckily for me, I got a very good lawyer that said, "you no longer work for them, so the clausule does not have any standing anymore, so lets sue in your hometown instead. And guess what, he was right.

Indian Woman Sues Uber In the US Over Alleged New Delhi Taxi Rape

ruir Re:The crime happened to an Indian in India. (234 comments)

When she/he has not earned or worked his/her ass to it. Who says all of this is not fabricated, and a get-rich scheme in a bollywood-style grotesc movie just to game the american system, which is known to give huge sums? That is coming from a country where hundreds of women are raped every day, seems to be hardly Ubers fault. If I were Uber, I would not give a compensation and would go all the way to the court. And at the end of the day, any amount unduly gained by that individual is getting out of Ubers customers pockets. Corporations are not magical places where the money comes from pots at the end of the rainbow.

FCC Prohibits Blocking of Personal Wi-Fi Hotspots

ruir Re:This is a much bigger problem than you might th (128 comments)

What I have been saying all along is that I work in a Uni, and I have students (not-IT students) and teachers binging their home grade wifi routers and cloning the MAC of their equipment with a functionality of the said web interface of the equipment. This is the last time I say it. It is not quite effective, MAC-based security has not worked very well since 1995, and nowadays even consumer grade equipment has functionality built-in to circumvent it.

Do you realize in India this also happens with regular taxis and molestation charges are a daily occurrence, right? It is not the USA.

This is a fucking lottery ticket. An indian woman exploring the happy sue free mentality of the US, how quaint. I guess it would be also interesting to assert the make of the car to open another lawsuit in Japan.

'Anonymized' Credit Card Data Not So Anonymous, MIT Study Shows

ruir Re:Regular users only (96 comments)

Well, forget about being anonymous in the Europe Community, this year saw the passing of a law that any Internet sale has to pass a receipt to the buyer. The real idea is to 1) register who the buyer is 2) cross-reference data for sales evasion 3) cross-reference data for expenditures to catch people spending more than they earn

FCC Prohibits Blocking of Personal Wi-Fi Hotspots

ruir Re:This is a much bigger problem than you might th (128 comments)

As I said, very easy to circumvent. Just cloning the MAC in commercial appliances or in your netbook is TRIVIAL. I worked as a consultant in a major ISP many moons ago, and to backup my work to take to our HQ, back when external hard drives were not that common and were BIG, and I was younger and foolish, I just booted up the PC next to mine, annotated the MAC, changed the MAC with a simple ifconfig command, changed the cable to my netbook issued by my consulting company and presto. Let me reiterate, MAC security is a FALSE sense of security. Most of our corporate users who are not that computer literate to sysadmin level know how to evade MAC security too from what we have found until know.

MACs are layer 2, a wifi router only will only show you the MAC of the WAN interface unless it is on bridging mode. And even if you define the MAC of the normal equipment connected there, many commercial wifi routers have an option to clone the MAC, so people configure right in the web interface the MAC of the current equipment, and you won't even know there is there a new equipment. You have already found some wifi routers configured like that on our corporate network, and when I worked for an ISP customers did that routinely too.
