    I disable JavaScript on most websites... (Tildes is an exception).

    I don't like this whole websites replacing (or becoming) software thing. If something wants to execute code on my computer, then it should be something that I intentionally installed, not just a website I happened to visit.

    JavaScript for small additions that dont break the site if you're missing it (at least make text load) and HTML + CSS for everything else.

    While I love the concept and would totally buy one if it were a little more discreet But I cant help but think that there would be legal issues with it.

    If you turned it on in public, then no one would be able to make a call, as the microphone in their phone would not work. Emergency calls wouldnt work either. I know jammers for wireless signals are illegal, does a voice count? Or is this more equivalent to walking around with a bluetolth speaker?

    What kind of a range does it have? Just a meter or two? Or a distance more similar to how far ones voice may travel.

    I sync my keepass database over syncthing. It works well. Then again I only use my computer and phone. So there is little chance for sync conflicts.

    I understand that there are safety issues with allowing people to put custom software on their car. But if you cannot put your own software on the car, then how can you verify that the software they say is on the car is actually what they put on the car. If the car accepted custom firmware, then you could just flash it yourself and then you would know what the car was running.

    What if Tesla implemented malicious functionality like this and also open sourced it. Without a way to run custom software, you would be unable to remove that functionality even though you have the source code, because you would be unable to actually upload modified code to the car.

    Not just open-source. (Although I would rather free software). The car also needs a way to accept code that is not blessed by Tesla (perhaps a USB port hidden away inside?). The code can all be open source or free software, but if there is no way to put it on the car yourself, then it isnt much help.

    I feel many would go just for the uniqueness and coolness factor of it. E: then again, it did close down. So maybe I'm wrong.

    No JavaScript. I defeated it! That aside, this does look like quite an interesting little game to send to people that don't quite get the amount of tracking that is on the web.

    This is malware messing with the functionality of other malware.

    It mentions an opt out for sysadmins, and I imagine they all will. Especially after the complaints from employees come in.

    Can Chrome respond? Do they change the default email provider in outlook to gmail (that'd be funny)? Do they just "blacklist" microsofts extension?

    One of the Chinese license application requirements listed here is that

    Games should be DRM-free

    And while I support this (and it would be nice if other countries also required that games be DRM free) it seems hard to comply with. If you publish your game on the google play or apple app store, it now has DRM, enforced by google and apple respectively (or is the DRM not part of the game, just the store?). Steam also uses DRM.

    Ha i'm a bit like this. Whenever I see an ad (which isn't common, it's mostly billboards and stuff), I try to buy a competitors product next time I need to buy that thing. It's silly and would have no noticeable effect, but it helps me feel a bit cheeky and smug. Like I'm immune to the advertising or something. Idk.

    This is offtopic. I assume that this website is a blog (given the URL). Probably text and some images. Why does it require JavaScript? JavaScript for little extras, sure. But not to view text.

    How about we look at what reddit did right and what reddit did wrong. And then learn from that.
