I feel the same way, and everybody else does, which is exactly why I think it's going to do the opposite. I don't think the real economy is going to prosper, but I think the market is going way up. I think the real top for the S&P is $10k.
The guy in California who wouldn't let them into his Apple device, they didn't "reveal" anything about their techniques, but they somehow magically bypassed full disk encryption.
Pertaining the idea that they can't do anything without revealing this, the TLA is notorious for parallel construction, so they can pretty much do whatever they want, and they obviously demonstrate this on a regular basis, such as jailing people for lawful entry into a public building while being guided by the "Capitol police" into the building.
I don't have any specific information on the AES 256 situation.
VPNs are only as good as the cryptography they use. I've been told by somebody who managed an extremely large division of an extremely large company that there is very good reason (which he explained in detail) to believe that even AES 256 is compromised / back-doored, and we're not talking quantum computing or any kind of newfangled nonsense, just very simple, inline streaming decryption at Internet backbone nodes.
Anything that travels across the wire is subject to snooping.
No, I'm meaning WRT accidentally downloading illegal things by grabbing a huge cache of files from somebody on the internet. For example, imagine somebody masquerading as a helpful user like you, but instead they are uploading zip files of classified documents or something that would be a felony to possess, and then immediately after a number of people access the URL, log data is used to generate subpoenas at ISPs, which is used to access user records and then gain search warrants.
Does anybody have a link to this patent? I couldn't find it in Google patent search, and I know it was there, previously.
I was reading the debate below as well, pertaining provisional patents. Provisional patents are typically granted in order to protect an invention when it isn't fully fleshed out, because once there is "discoverable" information about an invention, it's too late. For example, you invent a new kind of sprinkler attachment, and you're afraid your competitors are going to come up with the same idea or somebody is going to leak the idea to them, so you put a rough draft in via a provisional patent while you are working on the full patent.
Even though I get angry every time I hear the words "chat GPT", every time I see one of your posts I smile and eventually start cracking up when I read your torturous questioning technique 🤣... so epic. Thanks for this.
I didn't know Peter Teal was gay. I read his book, "from zero to one", kind of a depressing book - the thesis is essentially "there's only room for one of each kind of business on earth".
I don't think being gay means that you're automatically a leftist, but I think, since being gay is unnatural, it's a kind of weakness (vs overcoming it as an unnatural perversion) to remain in such a state - there is a reason that gay people are much more likely, statistically, to molest children, engage in promiscuous activities with strangers, spread diseases, etc., that it's reasonable to assume they are more likely to be a leftist and/or degenerate trash... EVEN though, I know not all of them are.
It's called Google bombing, used to be really popular back in the olden days, the ideas that you exploit googles ranking algorithm to get somebody to rank for something obscure. It used to be as simple as putting a bunch of links to the target website with the anchor text that you want them to rank for. I don't know for 100% sure that that's what's going on here, but it's a lot more likely than Google providing any kind of secret illuminati clue, etc.
Interesting, thanks for the link.
This kind of nuanced thinking about data is pretty newfangled. It reminds me of the (entirely unrelated) concept of "security through obscurity", whereby anything that is not part of a mathematical security standard is automatically declared to be "not security at all", rather than practitioners taking various security principles and looking at their combinatorial value, in a nuanced fashion.
Yeah, I think voting is like a kind of therapy at this point. We go and vote for somebody and then cheer when they win, knowing inside that they are lying about everything they promised to do or else they would have been offed pre-election season.
Pertaining the skate parks, I totally forgot about that, absolutely fucking absurdity. this whole entire situation was just like one big ritual abuse / struggle session.
There was nothing more dystopian than going to the beach and having all of the beach ladders roped off to prevent people from getting out onto the sand, fucking communist pieces of shit.
And you're exactly right, that guy just saw it as a marketing advantage to pretend he was ahead of everybody else, and it worked.
Here's something weird (really out there, but interesting because of the corroborating esoteric symbolism): https://files.catbox.moe/pn1g0d.MOV
