The cost of a jail-out card
It seems that $10 billion in the US buys you a nice jail-out card.

Pounds are only useful in England, anywhere else there are not useful even if some banks are willing to exchange it at a deep discount because they have other clients willing to purchase it at a high premium because they are going to England where they can exchange it for good or services.
But bitcoin is worthless everywhere because it can be exchanged readily for good or services. You need a greater fool that is willing to exchange them for real currency.
A real computer wiz will never raise a support ticket even if the machine is totally bricked. They will find a way to fix it or die trying before surrendering and asking for help from anyone. The nightmare are those that think they are wiz kids but actually aren’t.
What you are talking is a well known genetic situation that is called chimerism, rare, but well studied. A person or animal born out of two fused embryos that would have produced twins but in this case one embryo absorbs the other and the resulting fetus and afterwards person may have cells with the DNA of the absorbed embryo and cells of the prevailing embryo. The DNA changes usually in certain organs but it doesn’t have to.
If North American geneticists do not know about this circumstance then it’s a problem with American experts and not a problem with proper made DNA tests
Extreme Right or Left Politicians like to regulate what we do or can't do. Both extremes feel the need to ban stuff. The extreme right in Italy prohibits ChatGPT and in Miami tries to burn books in public and school libraries. The extreme left in China tightly controls what portions of the internet their citizens can access. I guess it is because both extremes have inherent authoritarian tendencies.
They grossly mismanaged the durations of their portfolios and their diversification of clients. The government should not let them fall but should not allow them and any related corporation to enter chapter 11. All assets and liabilities of any associated companies should be auctioned to other banks and financial institutions to make the government whole. Management, directors, and activist shareholders should be liable for the difference.
Doesn't Nissan make way more vehicles than Tesla? Two in how many million vehicles made by Nissan since Tesla shipped its first car? I guess odds are against Tesla vehicle owners... Be aware that Telas has a new nonoptional mode called wheel-less drive
Every country has an emergency broadcast system set in place, not only for misil warning but natural emergencies too. I supposed if hackers can get to the system and trigger it, they can also modify the messages that will be announced. I believe that UK isn’t inmune at all to that type of tampering.
Your phone acts as an electronic transponder even when not in actual use. It pings the surrounding cell towers every few seconds transmitting its IMEI (that resolves to your cell number and subscriber data whenever the telco wants) since it pings all surrounding towers and the signal gets to them with different power they can easily triangulate its position both in real time and after the fact.
Mercedes self driving has been certified to level 3 while Tesla is still a mere level 2. I think that traditional automakers could easily end eating Tesla’s lunch.
Its still high stock price is sustained mainly by the hipe that Tesla will be able to make a full self driving car while other manufacturers won’t but chances of that scenario happening look dimmer every day.
Or in the civilized metric world, a five by ten. That’s is the beauty of a decimal system being used by people that use a base 10 number system. You can go up or down in the scale of units to the one that makes sense by easily dividing or multiplying by 10 . Not weird divisions and multiplication nonsense that you have to do with American units.
I bet if they wanted chatGPT could be modified to give you a trove of bibliography on any answer that it produces. I will never be able to give you “the definitive correct” answer but if refined it’ll be able to give you the consensus response to whatever you ask it.
Keep worrying about the China while welcoming with open arms the “legal” eavesdropping of everything you do online by NSA and a trove of US federal, state and local agencies. The former can’t lay a finger on you outside mainland China but the latter agencies can use anything they eavesdrop to really f*ck up your life while in the US or in any other friendly country (most of the world). So don’t worry, be happy with it.
I think that airbus is aiming at allowing its new planes to be certified to be operated with just one pilot onboard. If the plane advanced autopilot allows the pilot to do the checklist by himself and in case of an emergency takes over the plane safely, it will allow the pilot to concentrate in solving the emergency (engine fire or malfunction) or if the sole pilot is disabled it’s able to safely land the airplane in the nearest airport, it will allow the airplane to be safely flown with one just pilot reducing the crew cost of operating the plane.
You are probably right. If you see who you view as your enemy get rich, you start to worry and try to sabotage his growth anyway you can’t. That was probably what happened to the US during the last decade, it started to worry China was going to displace the US as the biggest economy in the world and that got a few people in US’s establishment very worried and afraid.
1Password can be compromised and the only thing standing between the hackers and you passwords would be you master password.
I prefer systems where the a very long private key residing only in your devices is standing between the compromised passwords and the hacker. Like Apple Passwords in iCloud.
But if Apple and Google have their way we won’t be using passwords and 2FA much longer. Passkeys are the future.
It is simply credit risk management. Miners have high default risk due to their lack of tangible assets other than the extremely volatile crypto. Most miners using third party resources to make money need to bet that the crypto will increase in value overtime and thus they will tend hold-on to the crypto. If you allow them to mine without paying in advance or posting cash colateral in advance for resources capped in advance, you run the risk of finding after the fact that they have racked up massive invoice that they can’t honor because the crypto took a downturn and nobody is willing to lend to them to meet their short-term obligations. The most common outcome is for them to default in all their obligations leaving the cloud provider hanging with in the best cases only recourse to a bunch of highly devalued crypto with liquidity problems.
