All hail our robot overlords.
As long as it correctly tags John Connor as the leader of the resistance, we'll be fine.

I jumped on the bandwagon months ago and have been eagerly awaiting it's actual release. When I saw in one of their update emails that Andrew had reviewed it I was a bit worried he may pan it because of the OS used, but I'm glad to see The Reg was able to get their MIT's on it since it's one of the few periodicals I read regularly.
Mmmm. Pocket sized.
So while people may be very unhappy about border agents going through their luggage, everyone pretty much agrees that it is a necessary right.
Do we though? I don't believe I'd ever use the words, "necessary right" to describe such acts. Now privacy, that I will happily put high on a list of necessary rights. Some numpty rummaging through my clothes, much less my personal electronics, isn't something that will make me feel safe or secure.
I'm sure I've got my inalienable right in one of these pockets.
"Apple has filed suit against Qualcomm alleging it was charging excessive patent royalty fees for cellphone technology."
'Allo kettle, it's me pot!
Most of the quotes from Apple's lawyers are so funny they could have been taken out of a lawyers joke book. Seriously though hypocrisy is no laughing matter.
“The additional cost will not delay or cancel any current missions, though there may be fewer opportunities for new missions in future years, from fiscal years 2017-2020,” NASA says.
Somebody get the poor sods some funding! Can.. can we start them a patreon?
Rather than buy them a pint, throw that loose pocket change into a collection bowl and see how fast it all adds up.
"If Mankind is supposed to survive, we are going to need space-mining experience and technology." - Pascal Monett
It seems both you and the N.A.S.A. boffins should watch the documentary Armageddon. I hadn't realized humanity had forgotten so much about the art of asteroid mining.
"I've returned the modem 3 weeks ago, cancelled the contract via phone (cannot do that by chat) and moved out of the US." - Rafael 1
I suppose that's one way to get out of your contract... sounds less painful than gnawing your own arm off as well.
Darling, get my coat! We're getting away from Comcast no matter the cost.
"With the assistance of leading experts we have taken and are continuing to take steps to enhance the security of our network in the face of these recent events." - DCCC
All of the horses are gone? Somebody fetch me my bolt!
Securing what's already been take is the elementary part, my dear friends.
"The group said that within the package were printouts of each complaint"
The only ones harmed by this stunt were the unsuspecting trees used to make the paper for those 100,000 print outs.
On the other hand no lobbyists were harmed in the pulling of this. Next time save a tree print your complaint on a lobbyist.
I just finished reading through Brennan's private emails and it's clear the man doesn't have a clue about encryption. If the head of a security organization can't form a coherent idea on the topic, I don't expect anyone will actual place any value on his opinions.
If those are 'copters I hear outside, we'll know that reading his work emails may have been a step too far.
"In classic disruptive fashion, the Raspberry Pi has already taken a significant share of the education PC market with over 8 million devices shipped," - Chris Fleck
To be fair about fifteen of those are scattered around my house. I don't know what I'll do with all of them, but they're so cheap that every time they release a new version I grab a couple.
I know I left one in one of these pockets.
"Regardless, senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who chairs the US Senate Intelligence Committee, went on TV and said..."
Perhaps if they focused on Human Intelligence instead of worrying about SIGINT there would be one less reason to question the collective intelligence of their committees. Terrifyingly it is not only in Washington where they lack intelligence.
"Look, if you you're too fucking stupid to search with Google, then maybe you balls deserve that kind of treatment.
Dropbox/OneDrive/Google Drive is what you are looking for." - Anon
Sure that wouldn't make it more difficult than it needs to be. I mean the Internet makes everything easier. Even transferring files between local devices. Twenty years on and I still email myself files.
"I want a machine to behave like a machine which means that the controls stay where I expect them to be. Am I in a minority here? " - leon clarke
Our future machine overlords will not be pleased with comments like this.
Let me be the first to say I am happy to accept whatever changes our machine overlords deem necessary.
"The terms the Commission is reviewing are commonplace in most commercial contracts, and in fact are being used by our competitors in their own contracts," AT&T vice-president of federal regulator Frank Simone
Now Frankie, if all of your little friends were jumping off bridges do you think your mother and I would let you jump too?
