Comment Re:Sounds like Cellebrite is an enemy of the peopl (Score 2) 91

people need to defend themselves.

there are hostiles out there that want to do us harm, either now or perhaps, later.

these hostiles are GOVERNMENTS and CORPORATIONS.

no one speaks for us, the individual, anymore. both those bad guys want to do us harm and do not have our best interests at heart.

its time for a revolution. seriously, its over due.

and if those treasonous corps and govs get punished by mobs, I don't think I'll lose any sleep over that ;)

tech is a small world; make waves and you may not be working in your field again.

we have mostly killed unions and workers refuse to band together because... reasons. (shrug).

and so, there is no one to speak for the regular worker. not really, not anymore.

we need jobs to pay the bills. its pretty powerful to hold that over someone's head.

this is the unwritten rule. complain and you find yourself out of work and unable to GET work (in some extremes). now, if you are a white male and older than that magic number, you will try even HARDER to avoid being fired or making 'trouble' for managers at work.

until we get a proper balance of power, the worker will continue to be abused and have no real recourse. not in the US and CERTAINLY not in trump's US ;(

its a lie.

it has nothing to do with hazzards, other than the 'hazzard' of the company losing BIG PROFITS from captive repair bills.

apple is really looking bad, here. there is nothing credible they could state to defend this 'you shall not be allowed to repair things you actually own' bullshit.

Comment Re:Intel dropping the ball (Score 3, Interesting) 59

check out intel's curie module (their really BAD arduino chip found in the arudino101 board). its a horrible chip and intel actually made that chip the center of their reality tv show 'americas greatest makers'. little known fact: the contestants on that show tried using the chip and all its features and almost everyone failed, even with intel's help. I can't tell you how I know, but I know this for a fact.

a prime time tv event and intel farked it up.

only intel could make such a mess and squander such a good chance to get a message out and create some buzz and goodwill. 'makers' still refuse to use intel for many reasons and the biggest: intel still has NO CLUE what the maker market is really about. curie is not a maker chip and so far, no one really is taking that chip seriously.

that's one example. but it seems typical of intel these days.
