Canada’s favorite coffee chain was covertly data mining the shit out of people who just wanted cheap coffee, and they got outed by the government, then concluded tim hortons was basically being evil then was like “oh well can’t punish them".

>The Tim Hortons app used location data to infer where users lived, worked, and whether they were travelling. It generated an “event” every time users entered and left their homes, entered and exited their office, or travelled.

It streamlines the process. If you already have the app it has your payment info and so on and you can order stuff before you get there or something. It's really unnecessary and a sign of how strapped for time and productivity-maxing society has become.

Hey guys, scarce here. As of late I've come to realize that most desktop environments are kind of shit since they're either just bad like xfces or really bad like GNOME/KDE, and tend to be unstable, often having updates that completely change the desktop and workflow so I've started to look at more lightweight options like window managers. So far the benefits seem to outweight the negatives.
> Stable, you make your own config and it never changes unless you want it to
> No gnometroons or Scalies causing drama in your git issues
> Can choose any combination of software without it looking too tacky
> Lightweight, speedy, just werks even on ancient hardware
> Diverse components build up to a fully functioning 'DE' of your own making, no blote
> No udev, dbus, poetteringware unless you want it.

Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer.

Just like AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS (uses radio, not sound) vastly nastier than StuxNet.

American military made a grave mistake by giving access to the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.

shit, I take a day corboot my pc and this breaks. Can't wait to see what /g/ is saying. As usual it's a limited hangout, the tip of the iceberg or whatever.

>Basically the backdoors to your computer and communications will become available to your local mafia, eventually, because big organisations leak what ever trick they develop.


This has always been the danger of big data. When it trickles back to the local level, selectively. Now the owners of all our data can selectively police us, outside their country, by selectively releasing data to further their agenda. All your best boy local authority figures - local cops, private security contractors, prospective employers, landlords, co-workers - can access and share your personal data and metadata. The implications are fucking monstrous.

The local rotary club will have even more power than they had in the 1950s.

What's the tldr on this?

AMD came out today with (probably exaggerated) 5ghz performance clains for new processors, so Intel would have good reason to spread a story like this just now. All processors have remote management stuff btw, doesn't mean we should be discouraged or give up on solutions.

Ptychographic X-ray laminography: No trade secret or hardware trojan can hide
hxxps://spectrum.ieee.org/chip-x-ray

Every cell transmitter, phone and computer must be inspected. Silicon Trojans must perish.

Freedom for all is encroached when a few cyber terrorists can freely CONSPIRE to use microwave weapons and silicon trojans. While you are distracted with THEORY, they spread the PRACTICE: surveillance, theft, sabotage and murder.

Havana Syndrome is the result of hacked cell transmitters being used as a microwave weapon. Civilians are victimized daily, children included.

“Havana Syndrome: Are You Next? Electromagnetic Terrorism and Cognitive Warfare” at "hxxps://areyounext.help".

The future of privacy/security is clothing made of metallized fabric to block microwave imaging (enables theft of inner speech by observing minuscule throat/face muscle movements) and block directed energy attacks.

OP. Do you see yourself as a single, lone developer with the abilities and longterm lifestyle dedication needed to make this a viable project?

If not, your energies are probably better utilized by contributing to a team with a successful project in a similar area until you gain abilities and experience.

This is not discouragement post. Do something. Your idea has value. Why hasn't it been considered before?

Math is useful as fuck. I use it all the time. I used the Pythagorean theorem last week when I was building a structure to protect a well-pump from rain and need to know how long to cut the boards. I'm making a game where I regularly need to apply trigonometry when determining the relative rotation and movement of things. Our educational system sucks, and they suck at teaching math in a useful way, but that doesn't mean it isn't useful.

The classroom is used to induce anxiety and reverence for experts. Math class does not reliably produce math skills, but it does reliably produce ’math anxiety’, the belief that math is out of an ordinary person’s reach, and the belief that mathematicians are a class apart.

"Professor Yum-Tong Siu, whose class began with 50 students in 2003, said he actively tried to whittle down the class size. As The Harvard Independent reports, the class dropped down to 25 students, but Siu added: "I want to reduce it a bit more." The goal: 20. "We want a group of students with similar backgrounds so we can proceed at a pace that can suit them at the same time, so they don't feel bored or over their heads," said Siu."
