    DrDerp reacted to TempestCatto in Cloudflare DNS outage   
    That's what happens when the internet runs off of like, two damn services. At least this happens very seldom though.

    DrDerp reacted to LAwLz in College student, 20, commits suicide after 'glitch' on online trading platform Robinhood showed a negative $730,000 balance   
    Yeah that's what I am thinking too.
    No way a mentally stable and healthy individual would just suicide as soon as they saw a negative balance on their account.
    Also, how can you have so little insight into your finance that you don't know if you are 730,000 dollars in debt or make money?
     
    This entire story smells fishy.

    DrDerp reacted to themaniac in Not in Colorado - Intel refreshes Atom Embedded CPUs   
    seeing as Atoms don't even use the same architecture as the I series and were made as a competitor to ARM I don't see how Ryzen has anything to do with this, nor does AMD even have a low power soc/embedded series to compete with them. So how does Ryzen have anything to do with this?

    DrDerp reacted to TetraSky in Perhaps the second most overspent accessory ever made - anker 24k gold USB cable   
    At least they don't seems to pretend that this cable is "better" than a normal cable. It doesn't make false claims on the product page like lower interference or some other BS like others have done in the past with their gold/silver cables.

    DrDerp reacted to Thaldor in Perhaps the second most overspent accessory ever made - anker 24k gold USB cable   
    Capitalize the words "gold-plated". There is just couple microns of gold in that thing and the amount of gold in money is worth cents.
    At least with Lightning stuff, it's not a new thing to milk the sheeps 😂

    People spend more money on dumber things so no surprise here lol

    And it's a lightning connector too, which means in a generation or two it would be utterly useless since apple is rumored to go portless.

    Thoughts: Is this made to cater to the same people who wants a diamond or gold etched iphone? If so they must be filithy rich or filthy stupid, for the same price I could get a thunderbolt 3 cable which is far more useful. That said, 99$ isn't as stupid as a gold HDMI cable which claims that the gold will somehow improve the quality of a digital signal.

    DrDerp reacted to RejZoR in "iOS Secuirty is fucked" -Zerodium Stops Accepting iOS Exploits Because of too Many Submissions   
    People keep screaming about iOS 13 bugs and I'm like, what bugs? Had basically no issues since day one.
     
    Also, I wonder how many of reported exploits are actually valid...

    DrDerp reacted to Fasauceome in "iOS Secuirty is fucked" -Zerodium Stops Accepting iOS Exploits Because of too Many Submissions   
    This is what happens when you behave hostile towards the people working into your system with good intentions. The ones with bad intentions will still find the exploits, Tim!

    DrDerp reacted to BuckGup in Senate vote allows FBI access to your browsing history without a warrant   
    This really isn't new and has been going on for years. It just seems like a big deal but the NSA has been collecting a lot more info on you than browsing history 
  11. Agree
    DrDerp reacted to Arika S in Senate vote allows FBI access to your browsing history without a warrant   
    To those that are saying "well I'll just delete my browsing history or turn it off" they would be getting it from your ISP, doesn't matter if its on your own browser 
  12. Agree
    DrDerp reacted to RejZoR in Senate vote allows FBI access to your browsing history without a warrant   
    Also, isn't it convenient that federal employees are excluded from this thing... Just like the earn it bullshit bill. Expose everyone, but the pigs around the bowl. Those pigs have special privileges that allow them to use the encryption. Or have any kind of browsing history...
  13. Agree

    Dear Americans,
    Please check your voter registration at vote.gov.
    Sincercerly,
    A non-American.
     
    This is a perfect example of shooting a shotgun to kill a mosquito.
    "But this does not matter if you're a law abiding citizen"
    As if government agencies' information has never leaked before. Plus think about all the lobbyist/corrupt people out there.

    DrDerp reacted to TetraSky in Bill Gates, Airbus, Softbank back EarthNow plan to cover Earth with real-time video surveillance satellites   
    Big Brother wasn't satisfied with CCTV footage, so they wanted Earth-wide footage instead.

    DrDerp reacted to ChrisD06 in Bill Gates, Airbus, Softbank back EarthNow plan to cover Earth with real-time video surveillance satellites   
    This should not exist. It's illegal, violates all privacy, can be used as a super-weapon if it gets in the wrong hands, and will just do more harm than good
  17. Agree
    DrDerp reacted to Delicieuxz in Bill Gates, Airbus, Softbank back EarthNow plan to cover Earth with real-time video surveillance satellites   
    Taking this plan at face value and without more information, there are obvious issues and I've mentioned some of them in the OP.
     
    But here's another very specific one: There are people who abduct children and even teenagers. Access to real-time video surveillance of when children leave their home or school, their habits of where they go, would make it easy for a kidnapper to target and abduct a child with very-low risk of being caught.
     
    And the ability to know when people in a house and their neighbours are all away from home would be like an open invitation to thieves.
  18. Agree
    DrDerp reacted to Sauron in Bill Gates, Airbus, Softbank back EarthNow plan to cover Earth with real-time video surveillance satellites   
    Sounds useless.
    You can literally do that right now, NASA streams live video from the ISS.

    It's kind of like a drone hovering over your property but very high up.

    Well:
    Spying
    Stalking
    Home invasion
    Transporting illegal goods
    Better organized crime
    Actual 0 privacy

  22. Agree
    DrDerp reacted to Tristerin in Bill Gates, Airbus, Softbank back EarthNow plan to cover Earth with real-time video surveillance satellites   
    Since "The eyes cannot trespass what the eyes can see" Is also backed by "You cant stick a huge telescope on your camera to take pictures of my property from the property line because that modifies the eye"
     
    This is a state by state issue, but already touched on by the Supreme Court with McDonald v US - this is spying by a Company.
  23. Agree
    DrDerp reacted to jaslion in Bill Gates, Airbus, Softbank back EarthNow plan to cover Earth with real-time video surveillance satellites   
    This just sounds horrible. For all the good it can do it will do so far more worse things. Once anyone with bad intentions gets access to this be it a single person, a group, a government or whatnot things can easily spiral out of hand.

    DrDerp reacted to Commodus in Surface Day! - Surface Go 2, New docks, Surface Book 3, Headphones, Earphones   
    I at once sympathize, but at the same time I kinda wish vendors would stop supporting VGA.  It epitomizes that problem the Windows PC world has with being chained to the past, where companies and schools keep 20-year-old platforms around because of misguided priorities or simple inertia.  (See also: "nooo, don't make us upgrade our circa-1998 database software, that would involve actual migration work.")

    By the time that comes out, you'll be like "What? Only 4500 x 3000? Where is my 8K OLED HDR 9000 Full color spectrum with IR factory color calibrated display? And for THAT price? Sheesh... the 6K model of the mentioned specs is only 200$ at BestBuy."
