Yes, rain gets you wet and trolls don't read articles.
I found this article to be extremely interesting because it crossed over law, technology and yes, foreign rulers.

> but it would be stupid to design a device with wireless charging only because it's not efficient
I guarantee wireless charging will be the way we charge phones in the near future. Apple is close to ditching the port, and I'm sure the others aren't far behind. For one, it would be much better for waterproofing to have none.
>The only thing that stifles innovation is Apple with their attempts to maintain a walled garden and forcing their customers to update all their gear because the new stuff doesn't have at least 1 previous style of port.
They've changed the port on the iPhone exactly 1 time. The lightning port has been their standard since 2012. 9 + years is too short to stick to one port?
I know a guy that bought a domain right as BernIE Sanders mittens thing was exploding. Word has it that he searched for BernY Sanders and the results were satisfactory. So he bought " putABernyOnIt" dot com. Total cost: $20. While he didn't think he'd cash in big, he was hopeful to get a small return. The next day, he woke up slightly hungover and realized his mistake.
If anyone wants to buy a misspelled politician domain, let me know. I can put you in touch with.. um... "him". Word has it that he'll take anything over $20.
I have had this keyboard for just over a year. I have been working full time from home (programmer) since. So it's gotten a ton of use. I have not replaced the batteries yet, so their claim of 2 years is likely not far fetched.
I use a Mac and a Windows machine, so it's really nice to have support for both.
The one thing that I can't believe they didn't plan for is how many crumbs this thing collects. There is a crevice between the keyboard and the wrist pad. The wrist pad isn't detachable, so crumbs accumulate. I removed the 7 screws that attach the wrist pad, so I can remove it when necessary. (It just snaps in now and feels no different in use.)
But I really like this keyboard overall. I'm a fan of low-travel keys, split key layout and I really hate not having a number pad. So this keyboard was a no-brainer for me.
I learned to left mouse when I was gaming too much in my early 30's. I would left mouse at work and right mouse when [gaming] at home. It wasn't that hard to learn to the extent that I needed to for work (Sys admin at the time). I have since quit gaming and use left mouse only. It does have the advantage of centering my keyboard, as you suggest. And yes, I do have this Logi keyboard.
I just don't understand why it's legal in any circumstances, regardless of who the ransom is paid to. It's extortion. And as the article points out, the more it's paid, the more it is encouraged.
I thought maybe it was still legal because there's a market for this kind of insurance, but this article points out how complicated that is getting.
So WHY is it still legal? Who benefits so much that we can't pass laws to make it happen a lot less (or at least make it go away from the public spotlight)?
Scary proposition. But stay tuned because without clear data privacy laws, this will not be the the last you've heard of someone suggesting that turning over your search history will get you something you want or need.
That said, I don't think it's quite as black and white as others are suggesting. The specifics in your search history are likely not the issue. It's the overall searches that reveal who we really are. I don't dare to look at my history. Not that it's scary, but because I don't want to be less likely to seek information that I need because of the concern for how it might look at some point in the future when this becomes commonplace. I already do this with facebook. I think about every click and every pause in the scroll.
And if you think this won't become commonplace without clear data privacy laws, think about how many of us (I know there are plenty of individuals.. many of whom comment here frequently.. who don't fit this) have changed our tune about location tracking over the last decade. "I'd never let an app know where I am." was me 10 years ago. 5 years ago: "Does it benefit me enough to give away my location, and/or do I trust the developer enough?" Now: "Is this a super sketchy app or not?"
The IMF floating this idea is what concerns me the most. It will provide legitimacy for exposing us at a very intimate level (and I'm not even talking about pr0n).
Yeah, great idea, EU. Let's mandate a charging standard so we can be stuck in one technology until the bureaucracy gets around to changing the standard. How often do you think that will happen?
Example of my concerns: Will the standard be wireless? Because I for one look to a future without wires. But from what I've read, it seems to suggest it will be a physical port... even the article author editorializes that making a port 20% larger isn't that big of a deal. (I think his electrical engineering credentials are in question there.)
This past decade, we've seen a huge increase in the people that are "gluten sensitive". That is.. people who swear eating wheat based products makes their digestive systems go awry in various ways. My own (unsubstantiated) belief is that there is something much more universal causing these issues for most people.
Is is microplastics? If we're ingesting more and more each year.. it certainly is possible.
