Imgonnatrythis, in Hackers Leak 2.5M Private Plane Owners’ Data Linked to LA Intl. Airport Breach

2.5million people have private planes registered at just one airport? Man do I feel like a poor right now.

CrayonRosary, in Hackers for sale: what we've learned from China's massive cyber leak

“America says other country hacks more than America.”

thesmokingman,

The United States is woefully behind in almost every area of cybersecurity both defensive and offensive. While the FBI is quoted here, the international cybersecurity community would most likely agree. China has more bodies than Russia and is able to field a larger presence. The NSA is a shell of what it once was and the ability of the US to pull of something like Stuxnet again would only be possible through allies like Israel.

private planes, yachts, private chefs, etc seem like such an obscene amount of luxury it shouldn’t be allowed somehow. public services would be better if the wealthy were forced to use them, then they might actually care about the constant shittifying of everything

SuperSynthia, in Police shut more than 14,000 accounts on Mega, Tutanota and Protonmail

Everyone should ask themselves what is their actual threat model. That will tell you whether not this news truly affects you. Any criminal worth their salt probably wouldn’t roll with Proton or Tuta if they practice good OpSec

OfficerBribe, (edited ) in Is 5G really good?

For me speed increase is pretty significant. Testing with Ookla’s Speedtest I get around 60-100 Mbps download with 4G and around 300 - 500 for 5G so sometimes it’s faster that my Wi-Fi which usually is around 300 - 400.

Realistically though I do not feel this difference, 4G seems enough. Do not see significant difference in battery life as well. In the past I think 5G did eat more battery where I am so I stayed on 4G for a long time before trying 5G again.

I used to turn Airplane Mode on during my LSD trips many years ago, pretty useful.

Added to the cool crimes list

Fiivemacs, in You Don’t Need to Use Airplane Mode on Airplanes

Cool, I never did anyways. I knew it was horseshit to begin with and was just info being fed from uneducated tech people to more uneducated tech people.

cm0002,

Same, there’s not even a battery saving aspect to it anymore now that planes have at least USB ports to charge from if not full blown outlets lol

Railison, in You Don’t Need to Use Airplane Mode on Airplanes

In my country, 2G phones could interfere with radios with that da-dada-da-dada sound. I know people who have personally had that happen to them while trying to land airliners and it made listening to ATC more difficult.

I don’t think it’s an issue anymore though.

Definitely not an issue in the US anymore. T-Mobile is the last carrier to support 2G and they’re shutting that down in April this year. I think most Android phones explicitly disable 2G now too because it’s not secure.

AtmaJnana, (edited )

Mine has it disabled, but available if I want to enable it (with a security warning.)

abhibeckert,

That’s because phones and airplanes were operating on the same frequency. They don’t do that anymore… in part because there’s a dozen phones on every flight that haven’t been put in airplane mode.

bjoern_tantau, in HMD to unveil Barbie flip phone and new Nokia phone this Summer - GSMArena.com news

And here I thought it would be a Barbie head mounted display which is in reality just some rose tinted glasses.

Jackhammer_Joe, in Hackers Leak 2.5M Private Plane Owners’ Data Linked to LA Intl. Airport Breach

2.5 million times “Taylor Swift” on that list

antihumanitarian, in Gemini: Who negatively impacted society more, Elon Musk or Hitler?

So this is probably another example of Google using too blunt of instruments for AI. LLMs are very suggestible and leading questions can severely bias responses. Most people using them without knowing a lot about the field will ask “bad” questions. So it likely has instructions to avoid “which is better” and instead provide pros and cons for the user to consider themselves.

MajorHavoc, in Hackers Leak 2.5M Private Plane Owners’ Data Linked to LA Intl. Airport Breach

Oh no!

Anyway…

Truly the perfect meme and response.

dhork, in You Don’t Need to Use Airplane Mode on Airplanes

“You have a reminder set for 5pm today,” my phone said.

“A reminder? What is it?” I asked.

“It’s a notification to ensure you don’t forget something, but that’s not important right now,” the phone replied.

Then I remembered I’d left it in Airplane! mode.

Murdoc,

😆 It might be nice to have a phone that tells me “Remember, we’re all counting on you. Good luck.” Otoh it would probably keep calling me Shirley.

Kbin_space_program,

You can absolutely do that with a text to speech app and the app Tasker on Android.

Murdoc,

It would have to be Leslie Neilson’s voice though.

ShepherdPie,

Just have it play an mp3 clip of that scene in the movie.
