You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

.... I said to anyone that would listen (basically just my 8 yr old daughter, but whatever*) that if nokia did an android, I would buy it like a shot. The nokias I owned just had bulletproof reception in the worst places. Bought an HTC instead (good phone, but not nokia standard) But now, a decade later ... bit late to the party, I think.
* doesn't listen now, but that's not unusual
"It was believed that the proton was about 0.877 femtometres, less than a trillionth of a millimetre. But now scientists have found the subatomic particle is 30 billionths of a per cent lighter than that estimate."
I thought I was 1.8m tall but it turns out I'm much heavier.

No, this is not spam. It's cut & paste - in order - from the article. Apart from the KIT KIT KIT and (tool hah ha) which I just thought added a little spice.
Your two rent-a-quotes Kennerly & McEvatt must realize this surely?
One solution proposed is that manufacturers must implement passwords properly e.g. by putting a random password on each device. This is difficult and you can't really leave security to the manufacturer either, especially the hundreds of small Chinese outfits that work on thin margins and don't give a toss.
CE marks that require security would help, but since the internet is global and CE marks are Europe only, that help would be minimal.
The problem is the internet protocols. So we're fucked.
Maybe someone could write a scanner which finds these open IoT devices and changes their password?
the AI identified it as a Bernese Mountain dog. That's pretty good, even if no idea whether it's right or not. Maybe you wouldn't use the canned response, but you could build on it. For example -
Me: Wow, you have a Bernese mountain dog! They are so cool!
Them: err.. we told you that like 6 years ago. When we got it.
Me: Wow, cute dog. Is it a from the Bernese Mountains?
Them: beats me. rescue. shits everywhere.
Me: Ha his tongue is hanging out the side. What a dope.
Them: Fuck you
Over at Oculus, co-founder and CEO Brendan Iribe added: "We are excited to ... get lots and lots of money OH FUCK YEAH MONEY MONEY LOTS OF FUCKING MONEY .... err, sorry , I mean, we're excited to work with Mark and the Facebook team to deliver the very best virtual .. ah fuck it. It's just money. Where's my Ferrari?"
maybe they are dropping the price because their product is a bit, well, shit compared to competitors. Dropbox has _never_ failed me, while the gdrive client has frequently (>2 times per week) decided to simply stop working without telling anyone.
Only reason I'm still with gdrive is I'm a cheapskate (and a bit invested in picasa), and maybe this pricing acknowledges the near-freetard spending profile of Google's users.
Usually, these sort of stories get "released" in response to some embarassing incident that puts the TSA in a bad light. I seem to remember reading about grenades in luggage sometime last year too.
Anyone know what sort of idiocy the security theatre has been up to recently?
.. why not hire some to maintain Google Reader? (and while they're at it, fix the long-lasting bugs in Google Drive client).
I suspect the reason Vietnamese kids can pass the Goog entrance exam is because Google are nowhere near as good as they think they are.
"The most commonly cited reason for firing up a rogue cloud was to save time and money, according to Symantec."
So the solution is to make the in-house cloud easier and cheaper.
Oh, wait, I don't think I've ever seen an in-house solution with those characteristics, because they are designed to keep management happy rather than the workers who use it.
Capitalism is a system where the means of production - the capital if you will - are owned by one group of people (the capitalists) who then hire another group of people (the workers) to use the capital to create good which are sold for profit.
It has nothing to say about "maximizing shareholder value" (there might not even be any shareholders). It says nothing about whether avoiding tax is good or bad (and Adam Smith would say it's bad, because it gives advantage to companies with good lawyers, rather than good products, and Smith wanted the competition to be between products so as to yield the greatest good for the greatest number).
Schmidt was confused. He should have said: "It’s called greed. We are proudly greedy." But that wouldn't sound so good.
I just don't get why thin is such a huge selling point for a desktop. Makes sense for a laptop or a tablet, but the desktop just sits there. You don't have to lift it. Smallish is good, but obsessing about thin suggests they're distracting you from the fact that its FUCKING EXPENSIVE and they could, if they cared, give you the same performance for a whole lot less, if they'd just let it get a few mm thicker.
some idiot said:
"According to NOAA, all of the top 10 warmest years on record have occurred after 1997, when skeptics claimed global warming stopped."
One is not inconsistent with the other. If the global temperature flatlined on average after 1997, that would mean that global warming had stopped. But the years since 1997 would still be warmer than the preceding years so, with a bit of randomness, would continue to throw out records.
Personally, I think we're staking a LOT on what could easily be explained as random fluctuations.
How is it _possible_ to give a flying fuck about a phone? It makes calls, it connects to the internet, it farts, it plays a few games.
Obviously I'm not the target market.
Mine's the one with the TC in the pocket (the H fell off a week ago)
