And that's exactly why my daughter's new laptop will be converted from windows 8.1 to Linux Mint 17.1 before first boot.

The horse has already bolted on this one. A long time ago. Pandora's box has been opened, the contents released, and the box itself chopped up for firewood.

You cannot uninvent encryption capability, any more than you can uninvent a sharp knife or fire or nuclear munitions. They are out there.

You cannot prohibit availability. You can only make the cost of use too great for those who would abuse that use.
A European police chief says encrypted online communications are the biggest problem faced by security agencies tackling terrorism.

I am both terrified, and delighted, by the notion that the franchise might continue to boldly go...

This year marks ten years since Star Trek: Enterprise went off the air, and ever since, fans have been wondering when a new Star Trek series would come back to television. Sure, the J.J. Abrams movies have been successful, but the Trek movies always seemed like something extra, the icing on the cake for Trekkers, but not the cake itself. The cake is Star Trek as a regular, ongoing television series. And with the franchises' 50th Anniversary next ...

Check out Prelude to Axanar featuring Garth of Izar who in ToS is the villain in Whom the Gods Destroy. Well thought out and brilliant short film.

With Internet access increasingly being seen as 'essential' and a 'human right', one can only ponder with bemusement at how national and international legislation will keep up with the implications and possibilities.

Aside from imposing a similarly increasingly Orwellian lockdown on our freedoms, of course...

Even if the MPs didn't get the tablets allocated, they could buy and expense them anyway. Having a common technology should reduce support costs, and it's probably a good thing to have MPs becoming at least partially techno-literate.

Anyway, I would rather they had current technology than no technology at all.
All 650 of Britain's MPs will celebrate the passing of another General Election by getting a shiny new iPad Air 2. Is it the right device for government?

I don't live in the UK, but I would say sure... If they pick up the tab out of their own pocket. I'd say the same thing if they were in the US.

Only some days?
 
I think all programmers have felt like this some days.

Oh, boo... :-(
We'd all love to see a brand new Star Trek TV series, as the show warps towards its 50th anniversary. Almost everyone agrees Trek belongs on television, where thoughtful stories and optimism can flourish. But the latest rumor about a Star Trek TV show in the works? Is absolutely 100 percent false.

Much more detailed and informative than the typical answer to "what programming language should I learn?"

Now that's interesting...
Introduction
I'm a Documentation Writer for IBM Cloudant. I work on Information Architecture and Information Development for a variety of projects.
I'm active in and interested in how 'Mobile', Cloud, and documentation technologies are used in enterprises, big and small.
I'm especially interested in the idea of the 'Mobile Mindset' - a contrast to the simpler emphasis on mobile devices.

Modest size portions. The meals did not arrive at the same time: a huge delay for the second one to arrive. Rather expensive. Plenty of other better and cheaper places to go.

Very expensive. Extremely long queues for the rides, unless you pay a *lot* extra for fast pass tickets. Food options close for several hours in the afternoon, and nothing much else seems to be available. Very disappointing.
