Windows 10 Bug ArtFrance's National Data Protection Commission (CNIL) issued the order, which claims that the Windows Store collects data without permission on all the apps users download and the time spent on each one. The order also says that Windows 10 installs an advertising identifier by default, allowing Microsoft to monitor browsing and offer targeted advertising without consent.
In addition to violating user data protection laws, CNIL also complained that the Windows Store authentication method presents a security risk. Users can select a four-digit PIN to authenticate their Microsoft accounts, but unlimited attempts to enter the PIN are allowed, according to CNIL."
Stone, who has chronicled many American conspiracies in his films, said he does not believe an entity like the National Security Agency is putting pressure on the studios, but the corporate boards who control them.
He got financing from France and Germany for the movie, which comes out Sept. 16 and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden.
Stone said he believes Snowden is still “a mystery” despite many interviews, articles and the Oscar-winning documentary “Citizenfour” exploring the former NSA contractor who leaked thousands of classified documents about the government’s surveillance programs.
Alexander Fishenko, who pleaded guilty in September to engaging in a scheme that resulted in over $30 million in technology sales, largely to Russian military entities, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Sterling Johnson in Brooklyn."
Last four weekends had been been very disappointing not seeing these owlets, a pair. I had by now assumed they have left. But, today was an exceptional good day with photography, so I felt may be today is the day, and I took my ritual walk to this corner one more time

Yahoo first put itself up for sale in February and it fielded multiple bids from many different types of buyers — supposedly as many as 40 at one point. Those included AT&T; Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert with financial backing from Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett; and private equity firms TPG and Vector Capital Management.
According to Re/code, Yahoo informed the other bidders on Saturday that Verizon had won the process."
When flying over the semi-desert grasslands of Kazakhstan, crew members aboard the International Space Station (ISS) usually follow the long line of the Syr Darya (river) to find the spaceport from which they launch. Situated along a major bend in the river, the town of Baikonur is home to the Cosmodrome, the world’s “first and largest space launch facility.”
The straight road going north from Baikonur takes the astronauts and cosmonauts to the launching area. The railroad that crosses the photo brings rocket parts to Baikonur from Russia. The highway between Orenburg, Russia, and Tashkent, Uzbekistan, follows a roughly parallel route. For scale, the airstrip is 3.4 kilometers (2.1 miles) long.
The dark areas southeast of the city are wetlands that indicate the old bed of the Syr Darya—where the river used to flow in a more southerly course to the Aral Sea. The semi-desert landscape around Baikonur is a mix of dry lakes, sand dunes, and vegetation-free patches of dirt and bare rock.
The most recent crew members to pass through Baikonur on the way to the space station were Kate Rubins (USA), Anatoly Ivanishin (Russia), and Takuya Onishi (Japan). They arrived at ISS on July 11, 2016, for their months-long stay. At the end of their flight, the astronauts will land on these same plains in a capsule assisted by parachute.
"After the Supreme Court decided District of Columbia v. Heller, in 2008, it appeared that all attempts at gun control might be doomed, as a matter of constitutional law, for the foreseeable future. In an opinion by Antonin Scalia, writing for a five-Justice majority, the Court reversed decades of precedent and asserted that the Second Amendment guaranteed an individual the right to possess firearms (discounting the amendment’s reference to “a well regulated militia”). So, in light of monstrosities like the massacre in Orlando, are the state, local, and federal governments powerless to pass laws that restrict the purchase, possession, and use of guns?
As it turns out, no. Major Supreme Court decisions often raise as many questions as they settle, and that was certainly true of Heller. That decision rejected a District of Columbia ban on the possession of handguns that extended to weapons kept in the home, but it did not resolve many other issues regarding the regulation of firearms. Several recent lower-court decisions have narrowly interpreted the words of Heller in upholding important local rules about guns."
