I do wonder about the security of "smart" vehicles. With the remote jeep hack recently that can do things like disable your brakes, it makes me wonder what someone could get to once you network your car. I used to use a bluetooth OBDII dongle to see stuff the dash doesn't display. Now I don't leave it plugged in, because I'm not sure what can be done through that dongle. The Torque program can reset some things through the dongle, and there's that suite that can reprogram how things work through the cable connect to that port. Even if you can't get to the control system.. it doesn't seem inconceivable to root a car's android, and then create a remote mobile hack station.

n6 has been $499 on play and moto since the beginning of june. The price slash isn't because of Fi, but because of the coming new lg and huawei sets.

This touches on pretty much every issue I have with police tactics these days. The first lesson taught to me about guns was "only aim at what you intend to kill," which is why I chose to never use a firearm. I respect others' rights to make that decision, but I didn't want the burden. And here's a bunch of guys waving guns around like a big dick at a frat party.

And I've known enough military and former military that "militarization" is an insulting term to describe the transformation of domestic police. The only thing military is the equipment. Everything else? Big dicks at frat parties.

The military changed its overly aggressive tactics. It’s time for law enforcement to do the same.

It's not a link bait title, bear with me as I try to explain myself. Every once in a while, I get asked the question of "how to be better at DevOps". This is an extremely confusing question, because it depends entirely on what DevOps means to you. define ( 'DEVOPS' ); For some, it …

Bought my slightly-used 2011 Raleigh Rush Hour from Derrick, the sales manager at Cory's shop. He did a fantastic job of finding the right bike, then customizing it to suit me. I couldn't be more pleased with the experience. Will definitely go back for whatever accessories and service I may need in the future, and won't hesitate to refer friends and family.
