Apple responded in May to Balic, discounting the vulnerability. “Based on the information you provided, it appears that it would take an extraordinarily long time to find a valid authentication token for an account,” an Apple product security specialist named Brandon said in an e-mail to Balic.
The pedophile card is pretty much the last resort for these law enforcement types who feel entitled to the content of our digital devices. Fear mongering with bogeymen and an appeal to base emotions.
I understand that the recent announcement was a disappointment. It was for you, and it was for us. We wanted to keep working on Spacebase for years. But Spacebase spends more money than it brings in, and that’s just not something we can afford to do any more.
A 5-year-old’s birthday party took a grisly turn on Saturday after her family’s dog escaped from the yard and was shot by an armed pedestrian.
Emily Martinez recalls hearing a gunshot after her dog Clifford jumped a fence during her daughter’s party, The Denver Post reported. The family poured into the street and found a stranger, apparently walking his own dog, standing over the family pet, still brandishing a gun.
According to neighbors and guests at the party, the man who shot the dog was shouting that he was within his rights.
"I have a concealed weapon license," they recall him saying.
The animal was shot twice in the neck, and died after the family rushed him to a veterinarian.
Martinez also told the Post that the man pointed the gun at several people as they gathered around the fallen animal. In response, Martinez’s husband ran inside to get his own gun, but by the time he returned to the scene the shooter was gone.
The site threatening Watson was greeted with glee on 4chan and Reddit, where commenters explicitly stated their hope that the threats would force her to abandon her feminist campaigning. “If only her nudes got leaked and she had the load on her face. Her feminism kick would be over,” a commenter wrote. “If this is true her recent feminism rally is going to be shutdown hard,” wrote another. “Feminism,” one 4chan user opined, “is a growing cancer.”
The Fermi paradox (or Fermi’s paradox) is the apparent contradiction between high estimates of the probability of the existence of extraterrestrial civilization and humanity’s lack of contact with, or evidence for, such civilizations. The basic points of the argument, made by physicists Enrico Fermi and Michael H. Hart, are:
- The Sun is a typical star, and relatively young. There are billions of stars in the galaxy that are billions of years older.
- Almost surely, some of these stars will have Earth-like planets. Assuming the Earth is typical, some of these planets may develop intelligent life.
- Some of these civilizations may develop interstellar travel, a technology Earth is investigating even now (such as the 100 Year Starship).
- Even at the slow pace of currently envisioned interstellar travel, the galaxy can be completely colonized in a few tens of millions of years.
Here’s a different one: aliens don’t exist because the universe still exists.
After more investigation, I discovered that pretty much the only app for Mac OS X platform that supports multi-part S3 uploads is the unfortunately named, “Cyberduck”.
