I know at least one person here has participated in these (and has since uncircled me, I wonder why.)  It needs to stop.

Gotta love this. Too secure for governments that intrusively spy.

I'm disappointed that "Magrathea" isn't on the list.

Full disclosure: I have not been following this outside of my usual addiction to TVC.

Regardless of anything else, this is a perfect example of two things. First, traffic stops are stressful because the cop has complete power in the situation. Even if the cop is wrong, there's no recourse until the driver has been punished- fairly or not.

Which edges into the second issue. With that complete power can come abuse. Or not. Telling the difference is difficult, especially since the benefit of the doubt, legally speaking, is given to the cop.
Did Sandra Bland have to put out her cigarette when the officer asked? Did she have to comply when the officer ordered her to get out of he car? Here's why I think the answers are "no" to the first question, and likely (but not certainly) "yes" to the second.

If men are to be precluded from offering their sentiments on a matter which may involve the most serious of consequences then reason is of no use to us. The freedom of speech may be taken away, and dumb and silent they will be led like sheep to the slaughter. -George Washington

To be fair, I've seen security theater that's almost, but not quite, as effective as this.

Seems like the DoD hasn't gotten Obama's memo that encrypted smartphones == "Terrorists and pedophiles win".

"The important thing for executives to realise regarding the growing number of executives losing their jobs in the wake of cyber breaches is that there is little any of them could have done after the event to limit the damage."

This is absolutely untrue. An IT executive can make application and network security a priority. A good executive can make sure that the extra time is spent on building things right, as opposed to building them right now. A good IT executive can be the link to other executive leadership and explain to them why important initiatives need to be done in parallel to maintenance and security issues, rather than instead of them. A good IT executive will make sure that managers hare hiring people to fill security gaps and clear the way for security testing.

Failure here begins at the top. These people are responsible and should be removed.
 
Heads begin to roll – execs face axe for cyber breaches - Until very recently, senior executives have been happy to pass the buck for cyber breaches to the IT department or claim that a significant cyber breach had been unforeseeable. But a series of high-profile resignations are now shining the spotlight squarely on senior board members. US Office of Personnel Management head Katherine Archuleta has been forced to resign following a hack that compromised over 20 million personal records of...

Funny story- I ordered Windows 7 to virtualize on my Linux laptop back when Windows 10 was still "TBD". I still haven't bothered installing 7 yet. Wonder if I should just skip it altogether and go straight to 10.
Amazon's preorder pages say Windows 10 for USB ships on August 16.

I suppose this was inevitable. Really hope BBOS doesn't go away, though. I switched in part to get away from the hassle of Android.
 
Now, there’s a confirmation showing BlackBerry is indeed working on a killer Android device.
