So the story seems to be that Twitter, a large web based company, who employ probably, hundreds of security staff and software engineers have been hacked by three or four teenagers, presumably with no formal education in computer security.
This company seems to make money by offering a service to allow some of it's users to annoy the rest of it's users, who must like being annoyed or otherwise they would not use the service.
The security services of the US and UK are now busy basking in the glory of managing to trace these kids.
Why haven't we offered these kids jobs in counter espionage?
All this talk about "free" broadband if fine but as we all know there is no such thing as a free lunch.
So who is going to pay for it since the only money a government has is what it steals off the people?
I'm afraid its going to be you me and all the other taxpayers, including those taxpayers that don't want or use broadband, either in direct taxes or in increased prices from the likes of Amazon who sure as hell are not going to absorb the extra tax.
If the ear thingies stop working the only person to know that will be the wearer.
Since most people wear them to impress others it does not matter whether they work or not.
When I was kid people put the dog end of their fag behind their ear, these things look just like dog ends hanging out of the ear.
"Compromised to what end? So TheBadGuys[tm] can taunt the occupant about their inefficient 1970s appliances. Does it really matter? ... and besides, why would TheBadGuys[tm] bother? There's no money in the taunting game. "
If you could switch consumers off and on in sufficiently large blocks you could very quickly trip out the whole grid, think black start on steroids. No electric, gas, water, sewage, internet, alarms, phones all without a single shot fired.
And even if it is all running correctly you still have to rely on French logic.
I don't really see how you are going to upset a drone with a pressure washer since they rely on the speed of a small flow of water to blast off the dirt. As soon as the water leaves the jet the pressure is zero but the speed is quite high so the cleaning power diminishes very quickly with distance and within less than a meter you will only get a fog.
Now, a fire hose with a 16mm nozzle at 6 Bar will do the job, if you can hold it.
I am currently waiting to see how reliable overhead FTTP is. Here in France the whole village (one of only three in the department) is being connected to fibre. That is every house farm and shed. Fibre is being slung along the tops of existing poles on metal tees outside the village, trees have been cut in half, just the half nearest the new fibre, and hedges trimmed with a set of giant circular saws, pretty it is not. Will it ever work?, well hopefully it will be better than the current 1.07Mbps/0.43Mbps on a 5km line
