Cortana (Microsoft's assistant) can be set up to recognize someone's voice. It doesn't work perfectly - she responded to both my brother and I, but not my husband. We've been told we sound fairly similar though.

You can also disable or PIN-lock ordering via Echo, though I agree that voice ordering enabled by default is a terrible idea (though I'd swear it was disabled by default when I set up our Dots. Of course, I bothered to go through all the settings and verify them anyways, and I'm guessing many people can't be bothered to do that.)

Not sure if maybe this should go in Dark side of the news instead, because there's no way I believe that this was not intentional by someone, especially if Polar Fox was the name of a successful German WWII op.

As people commonly forget: the Amish aren't against technology. They are against relying upon people "outside of their community". So that's why they're usually against electricity in homes, but are fine with batteries for portable electronics.

In any case, the typical Horse-drawn Amish buggy is made out of fiberglass, with headlights / taillights (necessary for local / state vehicle regulations), with disk brakes.

“I prefer the wooden wheel yet,” the builder says. “That’s my number-one choice, for several reasons. It’s quieter, and it’s repairable. If you bust a spoke or something, you can easily pop off a tire, replace a spoke, and pop it back together again.” In the past five years, Amish buggy builders have developed an automotive-style tubular-steel torsion bar suspension that mounts the body over traditional leaf springs or, more recently, air bags.

Chelsea Manning has had her prison sentence commuted by President Obama. Manning has served 7 years of a 35 year sentence for leaking classified files related to the Iraq War. She is scheduled to be released May 17, 2017.

I wonder where this is going to lead. It's basically a promise from Assange to accept being extradited to the US if the above happens. Not that any charges have been brought against him in the US, I think.

My guess would be that it was just talk and Assanage will stay exactly where he is.

If he did make it to the US, wouldn't the DOJ just ship him back to Sweden for trial?

That was my thought. I know secondary - and tertiary - extradition is a thing because of Noriega, who was extradited from the US to France, then from France back to Panama.

Edit: wait dang, that's only two actual extraditions, but still.

Of course, until it happens the outcome is uncertain...

But the projected sequence of events is: (1) extradition to Sweden; (2) US files espionage charges and demands extradition of Sweden; (3) Sweden dismisses/bypasses charges there and extradites Assange to the US.

The charges in Sweden appear to be very weak. In fact, I believe that officially he is still wanted "for questioning" as opposed to actually having been charged with a crime. He has not been charged in the US probably because, if he were, it would give him a defense against extradition to Sweden; Britain has rules about extradition under false pretenses.

Why would they bother extraditing him to Sweden if he voluntarily returned to the US. Couldn't they just then charge him when he arrived and not have to send him to Sweden?

He didn't specify what level of clemency. Therefore, he meant pardon not commutation, because that's the interpretation that's convenient to him.

And if they wanted to charge him with espianoge, why wait until he's physically in the country before writing the warrant? If they want to do him for something in the US, surely it would be a good idea to get the charges filed before his BFF becomes the President.

Well he'd surely not come back if there was an actual warrant for him already posted.

If he comes voluntarily, they wouldn't need to extradite him. I just got distracted; I should have said the above was the former (presumed) plan.

What a bullshit article. This isn't even close to Melania stealing from Obama. This is just Trump presenting a dark apocalyptic image of America, and then finding out that other people have presented a similar dark image.

I have the highly subjective data to prove it.

Dogs aren’t just dogs. They’re doggos. Puppies are puppers. And while not all puppers can be considered doggos, all doggos are most certainly puppers. Or woofers. Woofers that bork. If you want, you can boop a doggo’s snoot.

You could say there’s plenty of data out there to suggest that I’m wrong, and that cats are still very much in control. And you’d be right - I found plenty evidence which completely disproves the theory I’ve outlined here, but I’ve left it out as I don’t care.

Before publishing, my editor told me I was brave to write to this piece. "No no," I said. "Brave is allowing people to leave comments…"

This should totally be an AIR article.

In today's paper is a story with a headline that says cats are the smarter pets but nothing in the article to back it up. I was going to link to it. It wasn't on the front page of the paper's website. Some other stuff was. Ugh.

So, er, maybe humorous: a policeman issued a fine to someone for using a hand-held mobile phone while driving. The idiot in question claimed to have thought it was alright to check Facebook, because, to quote, "I'm not using it as a phone."

Obviously if an accident has occurred that was your fault, you can be liable for prosecution no matter what the reason for the inattentiveness. But penalties for using a phone (or speeding, or driving drunk etc.) are aimed at people who haven't had an accident but are at an increased risk of having one.

As such they do really need to be enumerated specifically else where do you draw the line?

- Is changing the radio station in violation of such a blanket directive? What about eating an apple? What about eating a sweet?
- Is talking with other people in the car in violation of such a directive? Studies have shown that talking with someone in the car can be as distracting as talking with someone on a phone (and talking handsfree is, in fact, just as dangerous as talking hands-on...)

If you just leave it up to cop discretion you tend to get bigoted outcomes - with some groups suffering disproportionately compared to others. So it's better to enumerate the proscribed activities, and it seems like the law hasn't kept up in this case...

I'm pretty happy at drawing the line at using a mobile phone at all. There are a bunch of studies that showed that it impaired driving.

Of course, my hope is that self-driving cars will make it a non-issue.

If you ever have a chain of hotels, the answer is obvious. If you ever thought, why would I need to become an IT expert, that's what outside contractors are for.

Those hackers are pretty unprofessional. If your "customers" pay you, it's really bad form to hack them again. Why would I ever pay you for a service if you won't follow through.
