>Apple boss: We have a human right to privacy


>“Apple has a very straightforward business model," he said. “We make money if you buy one of these [pointing at an iPhone]. That’s our product. You [the consumer] are not our product. We design our products such that we keep a very minimal level of information on our customers.”

>“We don’t make money selling your information to somebody else. We don’t think you want that. We don’t want to do that. It’s not in our values system to do that. Could we make a lot of money doing that? Of course. But life isn’t about money, life is about doing the right thing. This has been a core value of our company for a long time.”

>“Some companies are not transparent that the connection of these data points produces five other things that you didn’t know that you gave up. It becomes a gigantic trove of data.”

>“We are not a treasure trove of data. It is a cop-out to say: choose between privacy or security. There is no reason why customers should have to select one. There is no reason not to have both.”

>“If they are really honest, they know that withholding encryption will penalise good people, not put a barrier up for bad people. There is no trade-off. It fundamentally doesn’t work. There has to be other solutions.”

> a dot in the end.
That segfaults for the same reason as before: %[a-z] doesn't match the dot, so it scans nothing, leaving the stream position unchanged. So it keeps scanning nothing (but you copy word into text[var++] whether it scans anything or not).

One possibility is to alternate between scanning %[^a-z] (a sequence of anything other than a-z) and %[a-z].

while((scanf("%*[^a-z]%[a-z]",word)) !=  EOF)

Then you'll need to add those to the set. And you'll need to ensure that you're using the correct locale so that the input is interpreted correctly.

setlocale(LC_CTYPE, "");

I don't think the ways to do that are standard in SQL, it depends on what you are using.
that's not SQL, you want to parse that into a scripting language and truncate it to two lines

Is a Dyson worth it? Are they really higher performance than other vacuums?

Or should I get a high-end bagged vacuum?

OP here. I just picked up the Dyson Cinetic canister vac.

I just did three bedrooms and the performance is surprisingly good. Look at all this shit in the canister. Man it feels good to know that all this dust is going straight into the trash.
They have good suction but are over engineered to the point that they are hard to use and can break easily. They have way too many features and all cumbersome to use. Since they are so packed with technology they weigh a ton compared to the simpler ones.
I would never recommend dyson because as long as you are cleaning and maintaining your vacuum, you will never loose suction. Do not buy Shark vacuums either, they have the worst build quality. Simple is always best.
Also I should mention, I vacuum my house every week.

>Backblaze, the cloud backup provider, pulled almost 5,000 3TB drives out of service after the annual failure rate reached a startling 47 percent

>Backblaze found that Seagate 4TB drives are fine, with a 2.6 percent AFR as of the end of 2014, and over 17,000 4TB Seagate drives purchased.

Model affected: ST3000DM001
This HDD is also included in Expansion 3TB Desktop External Hard Drive (Model STBV3000100).

I'd also like to add that my original HDD was a 250GB relic, and when I switched over to the 1TB seagate in my old PC I made two partitions - a 256GB system which the old HDD copied over to and a 700GB "storage" partition. My drive is likely constantly, constantly swapping back and forth between the two (they're also formatted differently to optimize performance).

If my seagate can handle this type of shit I'm very surprised that one company can report almost half of theirs having failures.
What's a typical hour count for drives to start failing? I leave my desktop on 24/7 to seed because I don't really give a fuck, my oldest drive has 38000 hours of uptime with 1200 times powering on.
I swear the failure rate of hard drives is going up just as a plan to make people buy multiple to mirror their data (or buy cloud storage). I sure as fuck don't feel comfortable anymore having my shit I wouldn't want to lose on one drive.

And yeah I'm talking about my best blowjobs filmed with my cellphone.
I have that exact external drive
It varies. For the most part, spin-up count causes more issues from my experience. Pretty sure the last two drives I had fail were at 80000hr with over 3000 spin ups.
Curiously, they were both the same model and they both failed within 2 days of each other.

So, isn't a option for everyone, right?
I think it's an option for most. For people who cannot figure out learning a new OS, no it's not an option, but they probably wouldn't be bothered by Windows or OS X.
I would take a picture of my badge but that's against the law, and I have no desire to be punished because some guy on 4chan thinks I'm lying. I mean, I can understand why you would think so, but tons of people work for the NSA, just look at the parking lot outside of the HQ at Ft.

Then really you can't say that's an option.
By that logic even Windows or OSX can't be options.

Okay guys, im probably going to send you all into a fit of rage because i'm not very knowledgeable in this sort of area (I make clothes, not computers)

(this isn't a "help me make a pc" thread, I just wanted to ask a few questions related to upgrading a computer.

This computer was given to me as a gift around 2013 time, and after messing around with GTAV I feel it is high time to upgrade it. Here are my questions, most of which I expect to be embarrassingly dumb:

What components decide how much RAM I have? 4GB I hear is not that impressive.

What components would I have to change to support a better graphics card and why? I highly doubt I could just straight up buy a GTX Titan X and stick it in there and have it work fine.

Additionally, what components here are not up to scratch? What would YOU change, and why?
plenty but if you wanna shortcut around all the bullshit, just install kodi and follow any of the setup guides on youtube
How good is using 2 GTX 970s in SLI?
Could I use a 4k monitor or 2 with 60 FPS on games that support 4k?
How would it compare to GTX 980s?

I got the GTX 970 before the scandal and I haven't really read much of what the issue was.
Cracked the screen on my S4 leaving two impact points but the LCD is fine. I can ignore the cracks when the screen is on but how long is my phone gonna last? There are some scratches starting to stretch perpendicularly to the cracks.

Really, what's the point? Right now anyone who can afford one of these can probably also afford to buy another one after it dies when they get it wet. So all you are doing is increasing Apple's sales numbers and making Louis Rossmann very happy.
not everyone who buys one can afford it. also, the iwave produced many sensible chuckles.
At this point, who cares about their sales numbers? They're going to make a shitload of money anyway. The way I see it: these are targeted towards the dumbest of the dumb, those who probably shouldn't have gadgets like these anyway. A fool and his money are soon parted, as they say.
