PayPal has fired a high-profile salvo at Apple in the high-tech
companies' battle over mobile payments.

In a newspaper advertisement Monday, PayPal used a little humor to
attack Apple over the well-publicized security breach in its cloud
system, according to a...

Last month, a Mr. Li in Shenyang, China, received a text from his
bank's customer service number, notifying him that his credit card had
accumulated reward points and telling him how to cash them in. When he
followed the link and logged in, the site went dead. An hour later, he
noticed more than $650 missing from his account. Only then did he
realize...

Ask foreigners what the most hated country is, I'm sure most of them will answer with "USA".

Their attitude of self called "World Police" is going on everybody's nuts - no wonder there is so much anti-american
propaganda out there.

The recent radicalization of the moderates regarding military actions against the IS in Syria and Iran just because
some bloke got beheaded shows it again.

this speaks well of her, in my book, as a human.

there’s a story terry winograd tells about when he was a grad student at MIT AI Lab, interested in natural language.
marvin minsky wanted his students to work on natural language to demonstrate that the AI approaches were as good as
parsing as those of the MIT Linguists.

When he ran into grad students of Noam Chomsky’s at parties, and said he was working at the AI Lab they would turn the...

Re: Kafka would have been proud ... Jeffrey Walton (Sep 11)
Well, its not clear to me she knew the affiliated organization (M19CO)
was a terrorist group. Its the first I've heard of them, but I was
pre-teen in the 1970s.

Lets call a pot and a kettle both black... Ronald Reagan was a
terrorist (and illegal arms dealer to boot!). George Bush was a
terrorist. Barack Obama is a terrorist... Just look at all the
violence these folks use to terrorize innocent victims in other
countries...

Based on this paragraph, it seems that she is not worthy of passing her background check:

Barr maintains that she had been truthful throughout both interviews, and that “there was no material fact about these
organizations for me to omit.” Barr says she was casually acquainted with two of the convicted murderers, Judith Clark
and Kuwasi Balagoon (née Donald Weems) but had no prior knowledge of their criminal activities. Clark...

That's f#ing hilarious statement...

It's unlikely that these are static towers: more likely to be Stingray or
similar mobile technology.

Has anyone been able to track down the real locations of these fake cell
towers? I couldn't get find a source any more detailed than the Popular Science
article.

That Popular Science article just has Google Maps "teardrops" in various large
cities. There's a teardrop in Denver, where I live. If I had the actual
location (street address or latitude/longitude) I'd go look at it, take
pictures, read signage, see if my...
