As for my sisters, if a guy says girls can’t code as well as guys, then my sisters just say “well, my sister wins competitions.” Anytime anyone says you can’t code, it’s all the more reason to roll up your sleeves and work hard. Remember, if you work hard, you can achieve anything and prove them all wrong.
With this new addition, Ubuntu users will be able to run Ubuntu simultaneously with Windows. This will not be in a virtual machine, but as an integrated part of Windows 10.
#Tay, #Microsoft's #AI cha#tbot, gets a crash course in #racism from #Twitter
source: http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2016/mar/24/tay-microsofts-ai-chatbot-gets-a-crash-course-in-racism-from-twitterBut it appeared on Thursday that Tay’s conversation extended to racist, inflammatory and political statements. Her Twitter conversations have so far reinforced the so-called #Godwin’s law – that as an online discussion goes on, the probability of a comparison involving the Nazis or Hitler approaches – with Tay having been encouraged to repeat variations on “Hitler was right” as well as “9/11 was an inside job”.

Passive Wi-Fi is, as the name suggests, partially passive—it takes in radio wave energy from an outside source and reflects that signal with its data added to it. Vamsi Talla, a UW electrical engineering doctoral student and co-author of the research, explained, "All the networking, heavy-lifting and power-consuming pieces are done by the one plugged-in device. The passive devices are only reflecting to generate the Wi-Fi packets, which is a really energy-efficient way to communicate."
It’s the message that spells #doom and will render your handset worthless if it’s been repaired by a third party. But there’s no #warning and no fix
The submarines were commissioned in the 1990s. According to The #Guardian, Windows XP was installed because it was "cheaper than alternatives." The #software is even branded as "Windows for Submarines." A joke? We're not sure.
The U.S. #Navy also still runs Windows XP, but it is paying for extra #security and #updates while it transitions to more modern operating systems.
At first, I was nervous when the kids were using computers in #school that their time with Linux was going to make things harder for them. I was wrong. Instead, I got an earful about how much trouble the school computers are and each of them has told me, without prompting on my part, they actually prefer Linux. Even now, if it weren't for a graphic-intensive #Windows #game or some #Minecraft mods, though the game itself runs great in Linux, they would not have any reason to use anything but Linux at home. Of course, the two Minecraft servers used by the kids and their friends are running on Linux as well.
Imagine trying to call from a Verizon phone to an AT&T phone, and hearing a #message like “The #phone you’re trying to reach is from a different provider, so the call cannot be completed. Please tell your friend to switch to Verizon”. Would anyone expect that, and find it normal? It sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it?
In the end it was Chinese cracking group #3DM that brought down that instance of Denuvo but the Austria-based company continued to tweak and achieved increasing #protection periods on recent games in the FIFA series. #FIFA 16 is currently #Denuvo protected and that game still hasn’t been cracked, despite being released in September.

Google said that Translate worked by looking for patterns in hundreds of millions of documents but translation remained difficult as the meaning of words was tied to the context in which they were used.
Microsoft Corp experts concluded several years ago that Chinese authorities had hacked into more than a thousand #Hotmail email accounts, targeting international leaders of China’s Tibetan and #Uighur minorities in particular – but it decided not to tell the victims, allowing the hackers to continue their campaign, according to former employees of the #company.
