This coin will moon in the future. I just don't know how long it will take to do so. I'm holding long term, over a year maybe more.

Here comes the train! I'm in I bought a couple of BTC worth of this. Lets see where she goes. I'm hoping for 10x but expecting 2x or something.. I hope we reach 5K sat but 20K would be quite awesome.

buying wave is a good call, but i don't expect more then a 2x price increase

It will not even get closely to $9 until 2019. Don't waste your time on it, start invest to other coin like OmiseGo or NEO or Stratis

OmiseGo and NEO are pumped now. This is a bad time to buy, wait and see where the correction falls. Stratis on the other hand was pumped a while ago and now its just stagnant around the same price. I wouldn't recommend any of these.

Bitcoin market dominance is at nearly 50% now Shocked

If dominance gets higher then surely Alts will suffer and slowly die

That would be a good thing for us BTC holders. Then when there is blood in the streets you buy up the alts.

The price has fallen 5% against bitcoin and that keeps going up. I just got out.

Now is a good time to sell.  Tongue

8  Other / Politics & Society / Major Flaw In Android Phones Would Let Hackers In With Just A Text on: July 27, 2015, 05:45:47 PM
Android is the most popular mobile operating system on Earth: About 80 percent of smartphones run on it. And, according to mobile security experts at the firm Zimperium, there's a gaping hole in the software one that would let hackers break into someone's phone and take over, just by knowing the phone's number.

Just A Text

In this attack, the target would not need to goof up open an attachment or download a file that's corrupt. The malicious code would take over instantly, the moment you receive a text message.

"This happens even before the sound that you've received a message has even occurred," says Joshua Drake, security researcher with Zimperium and co-author of Android Hacker's Handbook. "That's what makes it so dangerous. [It] could be absolutely silent. You may not even see anything."

Here's how the attack would work: The bad guy creates a short video, hides the malware inside it and texts it to your number. As soon as it's received by the phone, Drake says, "it does its initial processing, which triggers the vulnerability."
Google's upcoming "now on tap" feature will let smartphone users ask a question within an app like Spotify.

The Security Cracks In Your Smartphone

The messaging app Hangouts instantly processes videos, to keep them ready in the phone's gallery. That way the user doesn't have to waste time looking. But, Drake says, this setup invites the malware right in.

If you're using the phone's default messaging app, he explains, it's "a tiny bit less dangerous." You would have to view the text message before it processes the attachment. But, to be clear, "it does not require in either case for the targeted user to have to play back the media at all," Drake says.

Once the attackers get in, Drake says, they'd be able do anything copy data, delete it, take over your microphone and camera to monitor your every word and move. "It's really up to their imagination what they do once they get in," he says.

There's A Solution, In Theory

According to Zimperium, this set of vulnerabilities affects just about every active Android phone in use. Drake says he discovered it in his lab, and he does not believe that hackers out in the wild are exploiting it at least not yet.

In correspondence in April and May, he shared his findings with Google, which makes the Android operating system. He even sent along patches to fix the bugs.

"Basically, within 48 hours I had an email telling me that they had accepted all of the patches I sent them, which was great," he says. "You know, that's a very good feeling."

But it goes away very quickly, he says, when you look at how long it'll take his Nexus, my Samsung Galaxy and your LG or ZTE to get those patches. Drake says that as few as 20 percent will get fixed, though the figure may be higher than that, "potentially up to the optimistic number of 50 percent."

Android Partnerships Are Complicated

Just half of affected smartphones is not a very optimistic estimate. And Google agrees with it.

The company declined a recorded interview. But Adrian Ludwig, the lead engineer for Android security, told NPR the flaw ranks as "high" in the team's hierarchy of severity; and they've notified partners and already sent a fix to the smartphone makers that use Android.

Whether it gets put into people's phones is not in Google's hands.

"In this case Google is not the actual one to blame," says Collin Mulliner, a senior research scientist at Northeastern University. "It's ultimately the manufacturer of your phone, in combination possibly with your carrier."

Android phones are very different from iPhones, for example. Apple runs a closed system: It controls the hardware and software, and it's fairly easy to ship out a major revamp. The company says 85 percent of iPhone users have the latest operating system, iOS 8.

According to security firm F-Secure, 99 percent of mobile malware threats in the first quarter of 2014 were designed to run on Android devices.

Google gives its latest version of Android to manufacturers, and they then tweak it as they please. Carriers like Verizon and T-Mobile do more tweaking. The blog Android Central has described the challenge of updating the operating system as an "impossible problem." Earlier this year, a hole discovered in the Android Web-browsing app was left largely unpatched too.

Often, Mulliner says, manufacturers don't have a financial incentive to fix phones already sold.

"If you can save money by not producing updates, you're not going to do that," he says. "Since the market is moving that fast, it sometimes doesn't make sense for the manufacturer to provide an update."

NPR has asked leading phone makers and wireless service providers whether they'll fix the bug. We're waiting for responses and will post them to this page.

Inspired by the IRA bombing in Warrington, Cheshire in 1993, "Zombie" speaks about the Irish fight for independence that seemed to last forever. On August 31, 1994, just a few weeks after this song was released, the IRA declared a ceasefire after 25 years of conflict.

Until they do, you can assume this (gif below) is what these "girls" really look like.

Sadly, this is human nature.
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

Good and evil exists in all of us.
"If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?" - The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956 (1973) by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

To keep evil at bay would require extreme determination and vigilance (and education) on the part of all of humanity for all time, as evil doers are so determined and vigilant in their pursuits (and spreading of disinformation). When you cut a head off the Hydra another two spring forth to take its place.

Curious. Would you consider a bacterial colony in a petri dish to be "imprisoned"? Is a fish imprisoned to a body of water or a tree imprisoned to a land base? Is not all life on Earth held captive or confined to this planet much in the same way? Perhaps we are not imprisoned, yet still exist within The Matrix. Consider the possibility that perhaps we could not even exist otherwise.

Well yeah, I've thought about this even before I read that someone else suggested it in the past. If you really consider it, it is quite a possibility. There is nothing logical that can disprove this.
The real question is, how could we break this simulation? This could be even on just a individual basis.

Show the experimental paradigm which proves such an assertion.

Not "how you feel about it."

Scientists are already working on creating artificial brain simulations. At some point there will in fact be more artificial brain simulations than there are people. Once this point is reached, it will be far more likely that you are a simulation than real.

I wonder if Lucy Lawless is a permanent cast member or just a guest star. Either way, I love Bruce Campbell and will definitely be keeping an eye out for this one.

let's get something straight. of course there are some people who misunderstand the title and walk under the cause when what they are doing is totally not feminism.  the defenition of being a feminist is wanting equal right is between the sexes.
Equal rights? Then which is the group that calls for being higher than men's rights? I think this is that group.  Undecided

well you'd be wrong

Feminists publicly claim they are seeking equality, but when you look at the direct results of their acts and their lobbying it is anything but. It is closer to supremacy than equality.

I think true feminists only want equal rights. The trouble is that many women also likely feel resentment for having to fight men for these rights in the first place and that the process is taking far too long, therefore they become radical feminists.


While I do have a problem with these feminazis (in the article) claiming to be victims of harassment over a simple disagreement, meanwhile it was they who were clearly doing the actual harassing, I think the bigger picture here and what is of far greater significance is that the government is considering the viewpoint that "feeling" (as opposed to actually "being") harassed may be enough to convict someone of criminal harassment.
Thus, feminists in Canada could claim that anyone who disagrees with or offends them is engaging in "criminal harassment" and demand they be sent to prison.

I "feel" like this is some kind of an attempt to create fear among the general public of engaging in controversy and to drum up more laws to quell public dissent. The idea being that people will be less inclined to challenge or have a disagreement with someone (be it a feminist or more likely a government official) if that someone may have you arrested and convicted of criminal harassment by simply feeling like you are harassing them.

which allowed players to simulate punching feminist blogger Anita Sarkeesian in the face.

actually, it sound like this terrible fucker got what he deserved
clearly. The title is incorrect, he was jailed for harassment. 
No-one has been jailed as of yet over this.

Elliot was a supporter and did work for these feminists until they chose to "generate "hatred on the Internet" targeting the designer of an online video game". He is not the game designer, nor did he harass the girls. The designer's name is Ben Spurr and the girls involved clearly harassed him and Elliot.
