Some US companies are voluntarily collecting this information about us:
Some US carriers are adding software to your phone to collect data:
We should all be demanding openness. No one needs to know my exact location each minute of each day for months or years.
Sadly, most people don't care
"We trained for a year, flying out of Beale AFB in California , Kadena Airbase in Okinawa, and RAF Mildenhall in England . On a typical training mission, we would take off near Sacramento, refuel over Nevada, accelerate into Montana, obtain high Mach over Colorado, turn right over New Mexico, speed across the Los Angeles Basin, run up the West Coast, turn right at Seattle, then return to Beale. Total flight time: two hours and 40 minutes.
One day, high above Arizona , we were monitoring the radio traffic of all the mortal airplanes below us. First, a Cessna pilot asked the air traffic controllers to check his ground speed. 'Ninety knots,' ATC replied. A twin Bonanza soon made the same request. 'One-twenty on the ground,' was the reply. To our surprise, a navy F-18 came over the radio with a ground speed check. I knew exactly what he was doing. Of course, he had a ground speed indicator in his cockpit, but he wanted to let all the bug-smashers in the valley know what real speed was 'Dusty 52, we show you at 620 on the ground,' ATC responded. The situation was too ripe. I heard the click of Walter's mike button in the rear seat. In his most innocent voice, Walter startled the controller by asking for a ground speed check from 81,000 feet, clearly above controlled airspace. In a cool, professional voice, the controller replied, ' Aspen 20, I show you at 1,982 knots on the ground.' We did not hear another transmission on that frequency all the way to the coast."
Gizmodo has been full of shit like this for years. I'll have to dig up the "Fuck you all Gizmodo readers" post from a couple years ago. It was seriously a 7 paragraph bitch session about how the author's opinions shouldn't be questioned and the readers were all drooling retards. This wasn't a comment or a "I quit" post, this was their feature fucking headline for several days.
Edit: Here it is.
Another piece by the same pilot made its rounds on Reddit a while ago:

I think it only applies to their industry, but that there can not be another parcel delivery service that uses brown for it's fleet & logo.
I was surprised when I first looked at this map (the one on the bottom of the image) because it was suspiciously blue. Then I realized that the color intensity is proportional to the population density of the area.
It gives a much better understanding of the real distribution of red and blue in terms of population, without being as disconnected from the actual shape of the land as the "population cartogram" (geometrically skewed) maps are.
edit: Looks like Gizmodo picked this up too.
edit2: removed Facebook link (wasn't my page but realized it might violate the rules).
This technology seems miraculous. Like, really miraculous. Like, I-don't-believe-this-exists miraculous. I don't understand why this technology, if it exists, hasn't created a scientific and bio medical revolution. The article claims that cancer detection becomes trivial with this shit - why aren't we seeing medical groups scream from the rooftops about this? Something smells fishy.
Note* The article I read as linked to by wanking_furiously: Here it is
I found this. This is where all of the deleted comments go, and if you look, there seems to be a ton that are angry because they posted an article on "how to cheat and get away with it." It also seems it was front paged on Valentine's Day. The fuck??
Gizmodo now has a special section, designated #redesign, where they send all of the comments mentioning the site redesign. It's really pathetic and hilarious at the same time.
If anyone is interested here is a link for it. WARNING The link does take you to Gizmodo.

I read an article about Okcupids statistics. Went like this:
If 'plain Jane' is vote 7/10, averagely attractive, it's because most people vote her 7/10. (her mode is 7)
If 'Tattooed Cutie' is voted 7/10, it's because most people were not into tattoos (~5), but some guys were really into tattoos (10).
This difference in the statistics made there average rating 7/10, but the 'Tattooed Cutie' received 10x the messages. This messaging was explained in the article as the guys thinking, "You are weird, but I like that. Most guys don't like that so much, therefore you must not get approached much, therefore I have an easy in. I will send you a message."
I think this is what is happening. You nerds are thinking she is rated lower by the average man, and high by you, so you must have an easy in. The rub is that you have to compete with each other.
EDIT: Found the article
She indeed seem to be arguing reasonably for the use of pepper spray, but she does understate what pepper spray is. It is not a derivative of pepper, assuming she used the colloquial "pepper" to refer to black pepper, but is "a chemical derived from the fruit of plants in the Capsicum genus." Black pepper is of the Piper genus. Source.
Pepper spray, by definition, is a diluted solution of capsaicinoids. The kind they used was 0.7% solution. The average everyday pepper spray for tactical deployment? 0.2%. The strongest solution approved for animal use (i.e. bears) is 2.0%, but 1.0% suffices. Also, the minimum distance from which it should be sprayed is about six feet. Source.
The reaction shown in the video is just about the kind of reaction you get from powerful pepper spray. There are numerous videos on YouTube that will serve as evidence.
So, yes, she did "under-exaggerate." As for the situation at UC Davis, I find the actions of the police disturbing and the excuses of Mrs. Kaheti disgusting.
This is a good of a spot as any. I'm glad you posted the source article instead of the blogspam. I'm also happy this comment was voted to the top. Vote karma well deserved, kind sir or madam!
I propose a new reddit functionality. If a better URL for a submission is available I propose that it can be submitted and added to the title of the post.
Just a draft for example; something like:
> The RIAA Pirated $9 Million Worth of TV Shows (gizmodo.com)
> Reddit Alternate link (torrentfreak.com)
> (1654 users have proposed the alternate link)
> [+] see more alternate links
The alternate link can have a brief description in the alt text. Something like 'Gizmodo blogspam redirect to source'
EDIT - I see blogspam as a problem. Not necessarily a big problem but I think a good solution would do good things for the internets. There's a not small amount of people who's entire business model is around blogspamming and (re)(re)(re)submitting content for ad impressions. I'd rather give credit and impressions to source not parasite middlemen.
>The sheer technical genius of it amazes me with the fact that it allows for expansion at higher altitudes and returns to normal as it descends.
Fun fact: In order to compensate for the high altitude expansion, they had to basically build the plane with numerous expansion joints throughout the body, even in the fuel tank.
>Ironically, the plane was dripping, much like the misshapen model had assembled in my youth. Fuel was seeping through the joints, raining down on the hangar floor. At Mach 3, the plane would expand several inches because of the severe temperature, which could heat the leading edge of the wing to 1,100 degrees. To prevent cracking, expansion joints had been built into the plane. Sealant resembling rubber glue covered the seams, but when the plane was subsonic, fuel would leak through the joints.
From an awesome story about the Blackbird told by a former pilot.
i posted this in a comment below:
i searched all around and apparently it was meant to be revealed on a special called Found but i searched her website and found no information on it
an article i found said it was set to release around November but nothing else has been mentioned since
other article that talk about the show
so it seems only Oprah and the lake Tahoe police department know what was inside. since there's no mention since i'm sure there was nothing of interest, appeal, or value probably just personal documents and records, tax forms etc. nothing exciting :\
Man, Apple's stuff looks really familiar ... I just can't put my finger on where I've seen this before ...

Relevant #1: Article about labor conditions and work-related suicides at Foxconn-Apple factories in Shenzhen, China.
>There's no doubt about it. The Foxconn suicides were caused by job stress. Within half a year, there have been nine suicides attempts with seven confirmed deaths at Foxconn's Shenzhen factory. In the last month, that number suddenly increased to 30 new suicide attempts, prompting the company to hire counselors and even Buddhist monks to free the souls of the suicidal from purgatory.
>Foxconn is one of Apple's main manufacturer contractors. Thousands of Mac minis, iPods, iPhones and iPads are assembled daily in the Shenzhen factory, which runs 24/7. The company also produces some products for Intel, Dell, and HP, among others.
Relevant #2: Chairman of Foxconn, Louis Woo comments on the Passing of Apple’s Steve Jobs.
>He’s changed the way that we use technology for so many years, and defined the way technology can better be used, and better be applied to our day to day use. He’s more than a trailblazer. He defined what technology is supposed to be. We’ll all miss him, and there won’t be another Steve Jobs, that’s for sure.

i was just thinking this as I was browsing through this morning. Dig up the list of SOPA supporters and boycott them all. Don't buy music on iTunes. Don't go see a movie. Hit them where it really hurts; on their bottom line.

Oh and here's an article from January of last year about it: http://gizmodo.com/5743681/sometimes-the-answer-is-more-simple-than-you-think
A few things to note:
1) GoDaddy has since withdrawn their support for the legislation.
2) GoDaddy helped write the bill, so their withdrawal means jack shit.
There are a huge number of companies supporting SOPA. If this thread has somehow spurred you to action, realize that there is much more you can do that just engage in a knee-jerk response to one company that happened to publicly announce its support for the bill on the internet. Esports should definitely band together to help fight this bill, but please remember that this is a large and ongoing process. If we boycott GoDaddy successfully, I know many people will feel like they've scored a victory and let the issue pass from their minds.
On a relevant note, NASA's annual budget is $19 billion/year, and the House budget committee is attempting to cut it by 10%, eliminating the possibility of a successor to the Hubble space telescope

Here is an article written from a pilot's perspective of the beast. It's a very entertaining read.
The jet's top recorded speed according to the pilot was actually a short sprint at Mach 3.5, which is 2,660 mph or 4,280 kph. Unfortunately the titanium skin would creep at those temperatures so it could only fly that quickly for a very short period of time. When it was shot at with missiles (almost 4,000 times total), the pilot simply had to up the throttle to speed away from them.
Because it leaked so bad on the ground like you mentioned, after it took off it did a quick sprint so the body would heat up and expand, filling in the cracks that were designed in the titanium skin. Then the Blackbird would have to slow down to allow the fueler jet to refill it, letting the SR-71 continue on with its mission. The special fuel was heat resistant and doubled as a coolant for the craft, and the wing temperatures still reached 600^o C.
Want a pro tip? Add ".au" to the end of gizmodo.com, and leave the rest of the URL unchanged. The Australian site is still actually functional, even with ABP and NS running.
Someone should make a FF addon / GreaseMonkey script that automatically adds '.au' to the assorted Gawker sites so you can actually see the stupid articles without having to enable 42 different scripts from 8 different domains just to see 3 paragraphs of text stolen from reddit.
You are correct. According to this article, it's a Chinese guy who cut off his fingertip and decided to grow a new one on his stomach.
Hand counted? Lego manufacturing is some of the most automated in the world.
> In the packaging lines the pieces are distributed: they are dumped into the machine, which separates them one by one, then counts them using optical sensors, and placed in a generic small box. I watched in amazement, seeing how the pieces fell into these small boxes on a very small conveyor. At every step, one, two, three or whatever amount of pieces will fall into the box, according to the instructions of the set in production.
> Along the way, high precision scales measure the weight of the box. The computers know exactly how much a box has to weigh at any stage, indicating that the correct number and kind of pieces are inside. If there's a variation of a few micro-grams, the alarm jumps and an operator grabs the box, sorts the pieces, and puts the box back into production.
> Once the box is complete, the contents are dropped into the plastic wrapping machine, which makes a bag with the pieces inside. The box are then dropped inside another box, and passed into another production line, where more bags would be added until

Really, Apple copies Braun. If you look at their designs from the 1960's, you see the similarities. Apple's designer, Jonathan Ive, admits he is influenced by Dieter Rams, Braun's designer of that time. I find it kind of laughable that they are suing Samsung over design.

Except when the iPhone got
Seriously, do we really have to pretend that Apple never picks up a technology after others have already adopted it? Is it really necessary to praise every bit of tech Apple decided to integrate in the current model, and to outright dismiss every technology that didn't make it as "spec sheet and tech demos"?
It reminds me a lot of how, after the 4s was revealed, people here happily linked to this article: This Is Why the iPhone’s Screen Will Always Be 3.5 Inches
I don't think so either, especially considering this wonderful diatribe:
> "I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong," Jobs said. "I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this."
>Jobs used an expletive to describe Android and Google Docs, Google's Internet-based word processing program. In a subsequent meeting with Schmidt at a Palo Alto, Calif., cafe, Jobs told Schmidt that he wasn't interested in settling the lawsuit, the book says.
>"I don't want your money. If you offer me $5 billion, I won't want it. I've got plenty of money. I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, that's all I want."
Actually, multiple random writes only work well for securely erasing data from hard disk drives. Flash memory has extra data blocks for reliability and longevity reasons. These blocks may not be visible to the operating system, but they could still contain sensitive data.
Updated to add a link to a Gizmodo article that reviews some tools for securely erasing most forms of nonvolatile media:
There is an AWESOME book written by a former SR-71 pilot called Sled Driver by Brian Shul where he talks about this happening. He tells a ton of awesome stories and accounts of experience while "riding the sled." I've never been "on the edge of my seat" reading a book before that one.

EDIT: i salute your attitude to reddit and telly, man
It was more of an advertising stunt than anything else. They invited people to try to break the glass with their feet (which is why there are multiple camera angles), the cash wasn't real aside from the top layer, and there was a security guard around, apparently.
You make a couple good points, but the whole "you need to spend thousands of dollars on equipment to be a good photographer" is complete bullshit. If you have talent, you should still be able to take great pictures, even with a camera made out of trash Sure it's an extreme example, but I've seen art exhibits with pictures taken solely with disposable film......
He was also the first man on the moon to take a picture of someone else taking a leak.

EDIT: Added more reputable source since people thought it was a joke. I believe he really does have that first. He just did it into his suit so there is no visible evidence.
"Amusingly, earlier in the day Panda Security researcher Luis Corrons blogged about the Sabu saga, writing that from this point, Anonymous would only be capable of simple denial of service attacks."

I notice you were downvoted for some reason, but your response was perfectly valid. Scientists have found that octopuses will only watch high-def videos.
My friend's dog never paid attention to his standard-definition big screen television. He later purchased a high-definition television and hung it on the wall, at about the same height as the windows.
For the first month or so the dog thought the TV was a window. He would see something he liked on the TV (usually another dog), and start barking at it. If the dog ran off screen, he would run to the nearest window and look outside for it. He literally thought he was watching the dog through a window. He hates horses for some reason, and always growls menacingly at them.
To iterate: he had a standard-def TV for over a year the the dog ignored completely, but the dog watches high-def TV with everyone else and thinks it's real.
The contract was not up. Apple hates google and wanted to be free from all google products preloaded on the phone. To sum up why they hate them quickly, apple basically saw it as a stab in the back when google entered the smartphone market.

Seriously. Viewer statistics for over the air TV are murky at best. Also, most people do not realize the cost and energy requirements associated with running a transmitter, which is what our mutli segment commercial breaks are based on. Sites like Hulu can gain a profit because in this day and age high speed data transmission of compressed video is becoming fairly cheap, therefore there is need for a lot less commercials. This philosophy is both good for the producer and good for the consumer.
They shot with pasties but they ended up being visible after everything was said and done so in order to save the scene they had to use CGI nips from some source material. Wilde got to okay they nips so they looked like the real thing. Lost the source of the article, sorry.
There are a bunch if you search. These were the first couple I came upon.
Gizmodo did an article a few weeks ago on the best headphones for running that's pretty informative.
Their #1 recommendation actually comes from a larger line of Sennheiser/Adidas phones that are pretty great. I've been using the earbud version for running and lifting for like three years now with very few complaints.
Yeps. Gawker, and by extension, Gizmodo are run by unprofessional assholes. Anyone remember the prank where Gizmodo walked around CES one year with a universal remote, shutting off television sets as the companies did their presentations?

You know who cabs really hate to pick up? People who live in the outer boroughs. They hate the shit out of that. The longer each trip is, the less the cabbie makes that shift. If a cabbie could pick up and drop off a new passenger every other block, they would love that. If you are black, you are much more likely to be headed to Brooklyn or Queens.

Didn't they also just use a little robot dude to find a secret tunnel with two massive sealing boulders underneath a pyramid in Egypt?

An amazing plane. I find it incredible that they leak fuel so quickly on the ground, but then it seals up nice and tight when running at speed.
A really excellent read about this plane from a pilot can be found here:

Unfortunately Bell labs was not completely innocent. In the 1930s a researcher, Clarence Hickman, devised a method of magnetic recording.Clarence Hickman had a complete answering machine built in 1935. But Bell suppressed it fearing that people would stop talking on the phone and just leave messages for each other.
Considering they created a math theorem just for the show, it doesn't surprise me that they would be so painstakingly accurate in showing the melody correctly.
It's a semi-anachoic chamber used to block out unwanted Electro magnetic interference from devices and power lines. That would be a hybrid logarithmic antenna used to test emissions from a device. When it comes to rooms like this that is pretty small. If you watch transformers the hanger scenes with the blue cones on the wall is the Air forces chamber, its big enough to fit c-130 airplanes in, i think a total of 5 of them at one time. Its on a small base about 2 hours north of san diego.

LETTING THE BATTERY COMPLETELY DRAIN UNTIL THE PHONE DIES IS NOT GOOD FOR THE LI-ON BATTERY IN THE IPHONE.
This has been covered a number of times. This battery does not need to be drained. This battery has a certain number of cycles it will go through before it's dead. That's it. The more you use it the more cycles you plow through. Whenever you can keep your phone plugged in and battery topped off.
>A properly maintained iPhone battery is designed to retain up to 80% of its original capacity at 400 full charge and discharge cycles. You may choose to replace your battery when it no longer holds sufficient charge to meet your needs.

>Describing Android as an iOS clone is quite the stretch.
Not really. Early builds of Android show it, very clearly, as a Windows Mobile / Blackberry esque device and OS. Early Android was not designed, in any way, to be a touch based device.
Considering that the prototype didn't even use touch technology, I think it's very fair to say that Android, as a multi-touch smartphone OS, is inherently a copy of the iPhone.
Whether or not the iPhone formfactor copies something else is another debate for another time, but I think people can agree that Apple's iOS is the OS that popularized multitouch, mobile OSs.
And whether or not you agree, Android certainly got a complete redo in response to Apple's offering. It took Google a while to develop the featureset to compete with iOS, adding multitouch, etc, and today they've surpassed Apple in pure feature counts, but saying that Android owes it's beginnings heavily to the formula that Apple perfected is not a stretch.
1) You can stop the auto updater.
2) Safari is blatantly insecure. It has fallen in seconds at Pwn2 on several occasions.
3) Mac system admin? Are you serious? Someone actually gets paid to be a Mac system admin? I wish I had your job dude.
I don't consider Google's updater to be any more evil than the constant Apple call homes that are embedded into Mac OS like maggots on a dead dog.
It's actually the complete opposite of that.
Wii U features a GPGPU (unlike the last console generation) which can take over many processing elements that the CPU traditionally does. Like the article says, many developers are already finding out ways to work with the Wii U. It's actually a very promising sign that the CPU alone is able to play catch-up so well with the past generation of hardware using only the processing power of the CPU. This'll allow developers on a case-by-case basis to decide whether they should be going for complexity or spectacle.
edit: all kinds of interesting info around the internet, here's an article talking about it
Wasn't there a woman that stripped down and walked through a check point in her underwear so she wouldn't have to be searched? haha but this guys gets arrested, way to profile TSA...
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Gawker is a blight on the internet. They call themselves journalists but can't be bothered to actually edit their pieces before posting them. They stir up shit and then complain when people call them out on it. Does anyone remember that one writer's "you don't get to call us unprofessional" meltdown? Gawker's original content isn't worth reading and everything else they post can be skipped with no loss by simply going to their source.
I think you misunderstand me. It's not the writing style of this particular article that I hate. It's Gizmodo, and their roster of hack writers, and the unprofessional shit they pull.
I could keep doing this for a while, just search Reddit for submissions about Gizmodo, you'll see what I mean.
Reminds me of this video. Photographer went to hang out with leopard seals and one ended up trying to take care of and feed him the whole time.
This woman has fake leggs or something like that. I can't remember exactly what is was, but she had a valid reason.
Edit: ah, here it is: http://gizmodo.com/#!5602600/i-am-very-sorry-segway-stroller-lady
I had to delete my bookmark for Gizmodo because of two articles i read today.
Here is the first in which the writer purposely omits the first ingredient to try to prove his faulty point:
Here is the second where they show an extremely obvious Photoshop of a fake device: (Gizmodo link to a Kotaku article)
This migh sound weird but, is the girl in the picture the one who went on a date with a Magic champion and ranted about it online? http://gizmodo.com/5833787/my-brief-okcupid-affair-with-a-world-champion-magic-the-gathering-player I like the fact that his image is a meme representing a girl claiming herself a nerd and beign a total bitch about it. Karma at its finest.
