    Lance Barr The Designer Of The NES And SNES Has Retired From Nintendo After Almost 40 Years

    There were other products back then, but you had to read an electronics supply catalog to find out about them. I used de-ox-id from GC Electronics (smelled like Kroil).

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    The images on your phone are only being scanned if you store them on Apple's cloud servers. If you do not want apple scanning your images on your device, don't store them on Apple's cloud servers. This is entirely your choice. Storing your images on Apple's cloud server comes with some rules...

    The difference is that you can opt out of having them scan your local files if you decline saving them to their cloud. No cloud, no scan (at least for now).

    Blizzard/Activation being hit by the Perfect Storm. Will they survive?

    She was not only being nosy, but then she baited you into showing it to her so she could complain about it. That is completely fucked up beyond measure, and you were screwed out of your job by a sociopath. Did you contact a lawyer to see if you could fight it?

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    Outside of rooting, smartphones have never been a "user-controlled" piece of hardware. Considering that Google and Dropbox have already implemented CSAM detection on their servers, I think the only reason this is getting as much traction as it is getting is because Apple released a press...

    Whoever provided you with the "free" software that you willingly signed away your data rights to use.

    Apple will remotely install software to scan all US phones for child sex abuse images

    It depends on whether or not Apple is acting as an agent of the government or just as a company acting on it's own volition reporting crime. See: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2017/02/FBI-tries-to-bypass-Fourth-Amendment-Safeguards-by-using-Geek-Squad

    Blizzard/Activation being hit by the Perfect Storm. Will they survive?

    That's like saying blackface isn't offensive because you don't understand the roots of what it represents. The reality is that everyone knows what "Hit it and quit it" refers to: https://racism.org/articles/intersectionality/gender/1664-blackgirlsvictimization?start=1...

    Blizzard/Activation being hit by the Perfect Storm. Will they survive?
