    peanuts104 got a reaction from ARikozuM in Cloudflare terminate 8Chan   
    I'm not going to read the whole thread to see if someone's already mentioned this, so if this is a repeat forgive me, but my issue with this is it does nothing to curtail violent or extremist ideology. They'll just make a new forum and go somewhere else that's even more obscure, further radicalizing them in their own echo chamber. I think this is a strong factor in why we're seeing so many mass killings globally, not just in the US (whether is guns, cars, bombs, etc).

    peanuts104 reacted to Drak3 in U.S. May Outlaw Messaging Encryption Used By WhatsApp, iMessage And Others   
    You should read the Politico article referenced by OP's source.
     
    This isn't a partisan issue,nor is Trump's cabinet unilaterally for or against it (also not the first cabinet to discuss this, it's a trend in the executive branch).
     
     
    Also, the last attempt failed in a majority Republican congress...
    Which makes sense as a common belief amongst Republicans is that government has no valid reason for random search and seizure and shouldn't be allowed to do so.

    peanuts104 got a reaction from koolerone in Toto, I don't think we're in China anymore - US companies adopting social credit score system   
    That's the problem, it's not just social media.  Companies could sell your data to credit agencies to feed their algorithms and determine your "trustworthiness".  Things like religious beliefs, frequent google searches, weapon ownership, and a multitude of personal data could be used in their algorithm.  Even if you don't have social media, there is personal data out there about you that credit agencies would love to purchase and many of the services you use online would love to sell.
     
    Further, even if it was just based on social media, not having one would be seen in a negative light, kinda like having no debt (no credit cards, loans, etc) are seen as suspect to credit agencies.

    One can only hope.  An example of something bad that could happen with this is say the algorithm overwhelmingly determines based on a variety of factors that aren't race related that a vast majority of any given race or ethnicity (just using this as an example) are not trustworthy, there would be hell to pay.  You could sit there and go through all the information that went into the algorithm and that they don't include racial or ethnic parameters until you are blue in the face, it's still going to look bad if the algorithm determines 80% of a race or ethnicity is untrustworthy.

    Watch enough repair videos and you'll realize that Mac's are absolutely poorly designed in regards to thermal performance.
     
    Their response is exactly the deluded and uneducated type of dribble I would expect.
     
    1. Shrinking the die, as far as I am aware, reduces power consumption and ups efficiency.
    2. Shrinking the die does not mean you have to cram more cores in there, to compensate. Because you haven't lost anything.
     
    Really? You mean like that time they made a system that ran so hot, the BGA melted itself and popped the GPU off the board? And their fix?
     
    Put a piece of rubber between the outer case and the GPU, so that it wouldn't pop loose. Edit: Instead of doing a proper soldering job in the fucking first place.
