  1. Not sure how I feel about this. And I am sure apple may not be onboard either.
  2. Just from a liability There is also some kind of legal liability as well. The kid could be working on something and someone's day gets lost. Wouldn't look great in a court having a 13 year old loosing data... But definitely 100% on the labor laws. @OP, I like your go getter attitude BTW. But for now, scrap together what you can and get some experience under your belt. It goes a long way for when you get your first job.
  3. I can see myself having a pacemaker, looking at my phone, then laying my phone down on my chest without thinking. Boom, hospital trip.
  4. I got my 3070 today. Have been trying since Sept. to get an EVGA card. After much searching I found a vendor who does drops and back orders and is reliable. Managed to snag  an Asus KO 3070. Had to pay about 100 bucks over MSRP, but not the worst thing in the world. Finally upgraded my me 1070. 


    Oh, and the temps on this card kinda suck. Some undervolting and a modifcation to the heat sink (removed old fans, using case fans quieter and cools better) has solved this. At least... mostly. Still hit 80C under load but that is after 10 minutes

  5. You have the huge fines, but those who were involved in the mess have likely lost their jobs. It is just too bad those directly involved didn't have charges brought directly against them. The ones who ultimately made the final decision should be in jail just like the one who helped try and cover it up or push things by the FAA.
  6. I believe this is still ongoing. https://www.businessinsider.com/boeing-737-max-family-payout-may-depend-time-victims-feared-death-lawyer-2019-5 https://www.inc.com/peter-economy/boeing-sued-by-families-of-victims-of-737-max-crashes-billions-of-dollars-are-at-stake-as-a-big-order-is-canceled.html looks to possibly be on going. I am guessing many will settled out of court.
  7. Source It has been a long coming. The entire situation with the 737 Max 8 has been one crazy, messy path. Between oversite, politics, omissions and more that led up to the 2 plane crashes, it is good to see at least something come out of it. Though, I do feel $2.5 Billion just isn't enough. Too many people died due to those in charge being blinded by deadlines, money and just ignoring safety concerns.
  8. Source Okay. I clickbaited a bit. The "good" thing here is the fact the attack requires a bit of work and pretty much a nation-state actor. It is really nuts when you think about "Who in the heck figures this shit out?". And if someone did do it, it would be something out of a james bond movie. Rather wild.
  9. Why is this being compared? You write code of ANY kind or you design ANYTHING and it be exploited one way or another. Some things just require people to be more clever. I am sorry, but other than the severity I hardly see why this is even being clickbaited the way it is.
  10. Source Well, this is not something you see everyday. The fact the unnamed employee provided info from a rival company, then got a promotion out of it. My only question is how did they think they could get away with it? Did they think the business going belly up would cover their tracks? Kinda messed up if you ask me.
  11. It is good to see something positive coming for the workers at Google. There have been a lot of issues coming out from Google with various scandals, how they have treated employees and even went after some when unionizing came up. Hopefully this is for the better and provides a turning point in the culture at google. Honestly, it has been a long time coming.
