When I worked at UPS all the driver's routes were built specifically to avoid left turns at all possible for all the above reasons. This is not a new concept, this is old UPS delivery tactics now brought to the forefront because of the use of tracking and analytics. It's a fluff piece for UPS that's all.

I bet if you talked to folks who worked there longer you'd find that they've all been doing this for the whole time they've been driving .

You want to learn the facts and the truth, do your own research. You want to see all sides of the story you can't trust ANY big company regardless of how hands off they are with any of their web browsers.

No one is truthful, everyone lies. Seek the truth yourself and make an informed opinion on what you read on various sites.

seriously, I'm astoundingly impressed that this magnitude of data can bring an entire country's infrastructure to it's knees. The power that this botnet has is unprecedented, this is a digital Godzilla (DigiZilla?) running rampant on the streets of LIberia with the only defense some antiquated machine guns.

I'm not condoning this by any stretch of the means but I damn sure am amazed from a spectator's point of view. /hope they catch these guys //electrocute them with cattle prods ///then toss them in a shark tank ////PPV $99.99 make it happen

Google wants to put as much pressure on MS to get them to fix the problem as quickly as possible as this vulnerability affects the largest market share of Google's Product.

We all know all those windows users will blame Chrome for infecting their machine Because Reasons(TM) so let Google force MS into fixing this issue ASAP.

Apple's vulnerability? Who cares, it affects a microcosm of Google's user base.

Get rid of the ridiculous cable boxes. The TV's we have now are a bajillion times more powerful than the ridiculous set top boxes. Why in the world would we need a DVR with the ability to stream shows. If the networks were smart they would just flag shows that people want to watch and when they finally want to view them start the stream.

That would require some engineering and know how to do. This would cost money, which of course, the cable companies don't want to spend.
