US police are facing storage & cost issue because of body cameras

  • some cities are facing millions of dollars in digitals storage expenses, all of which are expected to fall on the shoulders of local governments

  • speculated that these high expenses may force some chiefs to employ less officers

  • eg. in Baltimore, city officials estimated costs of up to 2.6 million USD per year to store and manage video data, including the costs of staffing someone to manage that data

  • in Duluth Minnesota, 110 officer-worn cameras are generating 8,000 to 10,000 videos per month

  • Duluth paid $5,000 for 84 cameras from Taser international

  • three-year contract and licensing agreement for data storage ~$78,000

  • they are expensive to maintain, but supporters claim they will lower overall misconduct complaints and allow prosecutors to settle cases faster

  • police departments claim these camera systems are more expensive to maintain than the cameras implemented in police cars

  • “Everybody is screaming, 'We need body cameras.' But nobody is saying, where is the money coming from? What are you going to do with all the data? Who is going to manage it? Are we going to cut personnel? Are we going to increase taxes?” - Sgt. Jason Halifax, Des Moines Police Department

FCC commissioner says ISP industry "vibrant broadband marketplace"

Source 3: breitbart.com [Auto-play video]

Source 4: frontpagemag.com

  • Ajit Pai, one of two Republican Commissioners on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), inferred in a tweet that President Barack Obama’s secret, 332-page “Net Neutrality” document is a scheme for federal micromanaging of the Internet to extract billions in new taxes from consumers and again enforce progressives’ idea of honest, equitable, and balanced content fairness.

  • “President Obama’s plan marks a monumental shift toward government control of the Internet,” said a statement released by commissioner Ajit Pai.

  • “It gives the FCC the power to micromanage virtually every aspect of how the Internet works. The plan explicitly opens the door to billions of dollars in new taxes on broadband… These new taxes will mean higher prices for consumers and more hidden fees that they have to pay.”

  • “The plan saddles small, independent businesses and entrepreneurs with heavy-handed regulations that will push them out of the market,” Pai said. “As a result, Americans will have fewer broadband choices. This is no accident. Title II was designed to regulate a monopoly. If we impose that model on a vibrant broadband marketplace, a highly regulated monopoly is what we’ll get.”

  • pictures of damage and a quote from an ex-employee overclock.net post #656

  • update 2/12 (ltt forum thread) quote from JayzTwoCents “Hey guys. I have had private discussions with folks close to the matter. For the sake of their privacy as well as Mark Friga [FrozenCPU owner/operator], I won't comment on details, just know that this is the real deal... and no, Mark isn't in jail (but should be). Addiction is a bitch, and this is likely a blow that FCPU will have a hard time recovering from. Bottomline, I have no reason to suspect that my order will be filled. I will wait 10 days, then file claim to get my $12 back”

  • Site is still online, still accepting orders. no notice of closure as of yet, so tough to say what the final result will be at this point

  • Someone keeps flying the remote-controlled devices over French nuclear reactors, which continued even after the country arrested some drone enthusiasts.

  • So far 13 of the country's 19 facilities have been buzzed. Looking for a way to stop quadcopters messing with, you know, nuclear reactors.

  • This drone, photographed by Francois Mori, is instead an Interceptor MP200, made by French firm Malou Tech.

  • Malou Tech pilot Philippe Dardini used the Interceptor to catch a DJI Phantom piloted by Philippe Dubus, the company's CEO. The interceptor is a much larger and faster drone, with six rotors, and the net it carries looks thick and heavy.

  • A far more effective method to use was by just crashing a cheap drone into another drone to take it out. Pics: psa-entreprise.fr

Apple’s Activation Lock Leads To Big Drops In Smartphone Theft Worldwide

  • The number of stolen iPhones dropped by 40 percent in San Francisco and 25 percent in New York and smartphone theft dropped by 50% in London in the 12 months after Apple Inc added a kill switch to its devices in September 2013.

  • In California, where a law mandating kill switches has yet to go into effect, smartphone theft is dropping because some manufacturers have already started installing the software-based switches on the devices they sell.

  • So far, Apple, Samsung and Google have implemented kill switches on their smartphones, and Microsoft is expected to release an operating system for its Windows phones that has one this year.

  • But some of the smartphone systems require consumers to opt in.

  • Johnson, San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon and New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman called on all manufacturers to make the technology active as a default position, as Apple has done with its iPhones.

  • this is only after the phone has been paid off under contract, or if the phone was pre-paid

  • once payment has been completed consumers can do what they choose with their phones

  • “While the CTIA represents major carriers AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, we can’t discount the chance of “carriers being carriers” and putting their subscribers through all sorts of rigmarole before they can get their handsets unlocked.”

  • “it may take some time for your phone to get unlocked.  But since the carriers are now required by federal law to unlock phones if a customer requests, we don’t expect too many customers to be asked to go through hoops just so that they can use their phone on anyone’s network.”

Elon Musk says Tesla will unveil a new kind of battery to power your home

Source 1: linustechtips.com OP: Victorious Secret

Source 2: theverge.com

  • Tesla didn't ship nearly as many cars this quarter as it had projected.

  • The company is working on a consumer battery pack for the home.

  • Production could begin in six months.

  • Tesla is still deciding on a date for unveiling the new unit.

  • The Toyota Mirai, which uses a hydrogen fuel cell, gives owners the option to remove the battery and use it to supply electrical power to their homes. It can power the average home for a week.

  • A more practical application for your car would be a backup generator during emergencies, which is how Nissan pitches the battery in its Leaf.

BMW developing new Plug-in hybrid named as i5 / i7 to compete against Tesla Model S

Source 1: linustechtips.com OP: Ahhming

Source 2: carmagazine.co.uk

  • Due in 2018

  • 4.5% of all units sold in the pace-setting US CARB states must be zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) by 2018, and this number is set to increase in annual steps to 22% by 2025.

  • The e-unit in front develops 204bhp, the smaller battery-powered motor in the back is good for 95bhp, sources say. This brings the aggregate target output to 400kW or 544bhp - right in the mi000\ddle of Tesla territory.

  • Allegedly capable of a zero-emission range of 80 miles, this BMW is designed to operate in battery mode most of the time.

  • The combustion engine will typically only cut in above 40mph when road and wind noise out-decibel it.

  • Target volumes in the tens of thousands and a cost spanning from just below the Tesla to more than $125,000 (£85,000).

  • Manufacturers who fail to comply by not offering any or enough zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs), transitional zero emission vehicles (TZEVs), neighbourhood electric vehicles (NEVs) or e-vehicles with range extender (BEVXs) have no choice but to acquire clean-air credits from sources like Tesla, currently the major provider of such certificates. And that makes German car makers wince.

  • It’s based around the long-wheelbase four-door 5-series architecture designed for China; the stretched platform helping accommodate the bulky batteries required for these vehicles, as well as liberating extra space for bodies.

U.S. to establish new cyber security agency: official

Source 2: reuters.com

  • In response to the cyber attack on Sony Pictures, a top White House official, Lisa Monaco, official announced a new intelligence unit to coordinate analysis of cyber threats, modeled on similar U.S. government efforts to fight terrorism.

  • Obama will host a "cyber summit" with industry and government leaders at Stanford University in California on Friday.

  • Industry executives lauded Obama's increased focus on cybersecurity, but some questioned whether a new government agency is the answer, and whether it should be part of the secretive U.S. intelligence community.

Response from industry experts:

  • Amit Yoran, president of security firm RSA: "Is this going to be effective? Is it another reorg(anization)?“, the series of high-profile attacks showed that change was needed. "We aren't getting the cyber job done,"

  • "I do think it is redundant," said Tom Kellermann, chief cyber security officer at Trend Micro Inc. "You don't necessarily need a new center," he said, noting the existence of a similar Homeland Security unit that shares cyber threat information with the private sector.

i love ultra books and all, but what i really what is a laptop with a few m.2 slots, a quad core intel cpu, a nice 1080p ips screen, 2 dimm slots, but the real kicker is that this has a gpu dock that is open source.

in honesty if i could get a decent laptop (like i described), with a open source gpu/ dock technology for arround $700 cad, i would ditch my desktop in a hearbeat. i dont need thin and light, i need decent with open source, because i could keep my setup, but only need one device

did you break even on the pono. it sold for $190 :)

 

Yeah with Google Adsense alone I *just* broke even on the Pono.

 

But this doens't factor in the costs associated with MAKING the video, nor does it factor in pre-roll or other sponsor spots.

i love ultra books and all, but what i really what is a laptop with a few m.2 slots, a quad core intel cpu, a nice 1080p ips screen, 2 dimm slots, but the real kicker is that this has a gpu dock that is open source.

in honesty if i could get a decent laptop (like i described), with a open source gpu/ dock technology for arround $700 cad, i would ditch my desktop in a hearbeat. i dont need thin and light, i need decent with open source, because i could keep my setup, but only need one device

 

@LinusTech do you have any opinions on this? do you think that laptops with gpu dock are the next thing like i do?

 

 

Yeah I think GPU docks are going to be huge. I wish Thunderbolt would have been the answer, but oh well.

Then I should find more space capsules because I made a killing on that one... I spent $0 on the capsule, almost $0 on editing, no time testing/scripting, and Intel put an extreme edition inside the capsule :P

I'm working on an SLI-capable thunderbolt eGPU box with some parts I've dug up and my neighbor's 3d printer :D

 

I have no intention of selling this yet, but do you think there would be a market for such a product?  Right now it's definitely NOT user-friendly but that could be improved upon ...

I watched halfway and refreshed and now <This video is private>  :(


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

You have no idea how much owners of laptops like dual GPU clevos are pissed. This has literately made me halt and reconsider a purchase plan. 

"You should not overclock a laptop" gpu is too general of a statement. You have no idea how important that is to people that own laptops that are 12 pounds like mine. Significant gains can be made by pushing low power MXM gpus more. Some people use 2 power bricks to accomplish it. Removing it not only restricts users, but lessens the lifespan of the laptop's gaming life, as they do get dated fast, and are very expensive to upgrade. If we do kill our GPUs, we fix or replace them. (They die a lot without overclocking anyway it seems)
