More like where will the data go
The real issue with all this, is that these cloud companies are legally obliged to open up their systems to the first warrant that comes along.
I recently had a letter from HSBC saying that the USA government had demanded they release all details so as the US could identify US citizens holding funds abroad.
I have never been American, I have never lived in America, none of my ancestors were American
As a British citizen WHY must I be bound by US law, why must I turn over identity documents for the US government for money that is not even on US soil with a non-US bank?
Anyone who thinks it is good business to store details in cloud storage really need their heads tested.
Torvalds is just living up to his reputation of a 'bad boy' attention seeker, once they teach everyone to code it will help to propagate the argument that has been the issue for the last 50 years., that issue is the lack of formal control plus educational qualifications for programmers. ( no Microsoft certificates do not count…)
Programming has rapidly become the bolt hole for complete tossers to throw code together and claim they are somehow special because they are 'artistic'.(hence the silly beards and hiking boots many programmers feel the need to indulge in)
Only they can manage to grasp such highly complex abstract themes and ideas encompassed by programming a computer, the reality is completely the opposite.
In the 80's I was charged with teaching educationally abnormal students 'basic' and they could manage to grasp the 'aptitude' just fine… yep granted it was not 'Facebook'/'google' but it was the 80's.
We only have to look at some of the systems and code that are supporting highly critical infrastructure to see the result of this 'artistic' thinking(banking,medicine,internet….)
Seriously there is a need for him to grow up and start doing a bit more 'charity' work.
Re: Took ages to convince my parents...
I just make shit up….,( my bank still thinks I'm an airline pilot)
Because otherwise you end up being told that their little Jonny is such a genius with computers and he did not even need to spend as many years studying electronics and computer science as us 'old timers', not to mention he is a genius programmer…..
You can bet little jonny's code looks like he suffered from some sort of norovirus whilst writing it.
The sad thing about this is that they used the Longitude Prize as an example of something 'special'
If you actually go and look into the story, you will see it was a complete F* fest of 'self interest' groups attempting to force a specific solution onto the Navy.
The only viable long term solution was deliberately hindered at each stage, poor John Harrison spent his whole life on it mainly because of this hindrance, and they STILL shafted him out of the prize.
All part of them 'controlling' piracy…..
Altium are heading that way, Microsoft with office 360 ( the number of days it does not work cheekily encoded in the name)
Rather Ironic, when pirate software costs them money they cry, but when they fail causing tens of millions in lost productivity all over the world , then its "go read the licensing terms and swivel on this"
You have to be a bit careful with 'puffball' fungus, whilst it is not poisonous directly, excessive consumption can result in a toxic reaction.
Used to collect them as kids, on a good day you could find pure white 24" specimens.
Now in HK. bananas and tarro grow wild, that and 4 foot catfish living in the sewers.
There is 'all sorts' on the memory images of these devices from china…….
and yes there are microphones on many of the PCB's, absolutely the BEST hacking devices.
2. Blue tooth
Just 'secrete' the device in a bar or other establishment and off you go.
You would have to be fairly thick to think that 're-tooling' costs are 'absorbed' by the manufacturers.
That would be like being able to print money for nothing.
Next up… apple DO manufacture, and because it is Apple, then it is not going to be on a Supplier-responsibility list is it?… because it would be a sub-division.
you appear to have a very limited outlook of what is encompassed by the term 'manufacturing'
This does not bode well for the 'open source' Java.
It basically means that all the different versions of DOS are also illegal, because they all implement a common access point which is the public API.
It also means that no API's can be duplicated unless the copyright owner gives explicit permission, Also that all the software using existing API's of existing products must be totally written.
Congratulations on stagnating the American software industry.
Problem that these manufacturers don't tell you, that not only do these Nand flash devices have poor re-write counts, but also that even IF you put the data in, it cannot remain in the same area of the device for too long, it MUST be re-written or you will loose the data.
There are masses of scientific papers available with information on data disruption/corruption caused when nearby areas are written, Quite shockingly 500 times is not the lowest.
There are 'NDA' documents from major nand-flash manufacturers stating Re-write as low as 300-400 times even for devices that have been used for currently available product and USB pluggable devices.
There is a 'code' letter included in the top of the Nand-flash chip packaging that specifies the capability, but as stated the reference documents are NDA, even worse many times you will get product that states the devices are from a given manufacturer, but actually the Nand-flash dies are NOT from the same supplier, they have been re-branded or re-packaged at the die level…..
Again this data is NDA
Re: Beyond a joke.
Problem is.. the failure mode is not gradual with nand-flash it will go suddenly and if the area that goes is a structure control area, you will NEVER get your data back…this is because the storage algorithms are proprietary as are the chip spanning algorithms, in some cases even the manufacturer does not know where the data will be stored across multiple chips, because it is based around each chips individual failure pattern…
Simply put, he is 'claiming' that a shit load of money has gone missing
All BTC into and out of gox is tracked by the block-chain, so… if he is calming that the money was taken out.. let's see the relevant transactions and addresses.
There can be NO valid transaction unless it appears in the block chain.
let us also be clear that this is gox'es fault because transactions are ONLY valid if they appear in the block chain, the point has clearly been made many times that certain transaction fields can be altered prior to that to assist in the block being closed out and entering the block chain.
