Dropbox: Oops, yeah, we didn't actually delete all your files – this bug kept them in the cloud


Re: what matter does the metadata mean in relation to a file that no longer exists?

By identifying statistical patterns in the corrupt metadata our time machine has discovered in 2016 that you didn't wanted to delete this file back in 2011. Hence we walked the extra mile to move those files for you across the space-time warp. Customer interests first!

Navy STEALS? US sailors dispute piracy claim


Re: if they bought concurrent

One is left to puzzle why the USN bothered to install it on hundreds of thousands of systems when only 38 licenses can be used simultaneously. That would be a ratio in the range 1:10000. Maybe the brave sailors have put a very sophisticated license usage tracking system in place but its details are classified. It will work on land and sea, use the battlefield networking capabilities, etc. Or the names of the "named users" cannot be revealed for national security reasons. All what is needed is a good lawyer.
