Interpol: Strong encryption helps online predators. Build backdoors


You show me yours, and then I'll think about showing you mine.

These conversations are only and always 1-way. There is never a discussion around their transparency, the information they questionably gather, using questionable ethics and methods.

Talk about a killer feature: Home, Home Mini gear replacements promised after fatal update bricks gadgets


And in classic Google fashion...

In about 6 months to a year, the chocolate factory will be bored with all of it, and shut it down leaving all in a dumpster fire of failed integrations, dead hardware, and not as smart as they used to be, homes.

Crypto crash leads to inventory pile-up at Nvidia, sales slaughtered


Nvidia tried to have their cake and eat it too. If they want to get rid of the inventory, there is already a solution. They need to release drivers to allow the crypto boards without video headers to be used as video cards. This has already been proven. Linus Tech Tips did a video about a month ago where they picked up one of these crypto boards and with some driver tweaking were able to pass the video through the buss to the on-board video ports, much the same way a laptop allows this on gaming laptops where you use the Intel graphics for light duty and then use the laptop discrete GPU for games and heavy duty graphics. Nvidia would then have a channel for selling through the overhead. This was also shown to not impact frame rates dramatically.

IT buyer? Had enough of pesky resellers cold calling? You aren't alone


Change your number

I am one of the "recipients" of the relentless onslaught of these calls. I can pretty much point to where they originate from, as the deluge began not long after signing up for LinkedIn. I have changed my phone number, and am about to do so again, to get away from the barrage of daily phone spam. As a person that works in a service capacity to the company, not answering the phone is not really an option.

Datrium claims its split-provisioning DVX array is 'tomorrow calling'


Marketing Gibberish

Didn't we just call that a "server" in the old days?

Six weeks later, Verizon customers still bemoaning Frontier flubs


Fascinating that this is being reported in the UK and not a peep of this is in the news where there are Frontier customers. I live in a Frontier location, but use none of their services. My internet is from Charter, and my phone service is VOIP. I have posted and asked friends what their experience has been so far.

Snowden WAS the Feds' quarry in Lavabit case, redaction blunder reveals


The guys with the most guns, money, and lawyers are who make that determination.

Someone please rid me of this turbulent Windows 10 Store


Windows has an App store?

Lately, it seems, Microsoft is king of the 80% rule. 80% of their stuff works. And that 80% has 80% of the features of functions it should have or are needed. MS has an App store. But the 20% that is missing is a functioning search feature, and actual apps that anyone would want to purchase. MS has "Enterprise" solutions in Office 365. The missing 20% is they keep calling it "Enterprise" but do not provide working solutions for Mac users, still do not have a working OneDrive solution, etc. If they could whittle that 20% down to 15-10% it would be a much better world.
