          Comment on Will "Late Mass Democracy" Become 1984 or A BRAVE NEW WORLD?, by John Derbyshire      Cache   Translate Page      
JD -- The elites are making a comeback? Where? How? Maybe this is true but I am not seeing it. There is not a single example or bit of evidence given? Who are you talking about? Some names? George H.W. Bush's funeral is happening right now. He was a genteel aristocrat. He tried to be a centrist and do what's right. Bill Clinton on the other other side was a centrist, getting tough on crime and cracking down on welfare. Where are the new elite like that? Among the elite, I see three types: (1) A few rebels, like the Trumps, who dare to rise above the parapet, in the name of preserving the life they have known, and get shot at like crazy. It should not be a rebellious act to try to preserve civilization but apparently it is. (2) A larger group of the politically correct, who censor politically incorrect speakers and hit at the first group for status. Macron in France is the archetype. He burnishes his politically correct status by attacking nationalism and global warming unbelievers but he cannot confront or fix actual problems. (3) A third large group? The cowards like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett who have built great things but who dare not confront political correctness in any meaningful way. I dunno if they are biding their time, but it seems pretty late in the game. I feel so desperate for more elite, and more billionaires, to risk something to preserve their civilization. And then finally one of them speaks and half the time they are crying about global warming and you realize that, holy crap, they don't SEE! In spite of big technology improvements, life expectancy has declined for three years in a row. That doesn't tell me we are headed to a pseudo-utopia. It tells me the wheels are slipping off the wagon.

          Why the climate change problem is starting to look too big to solve      Cache   Translate Page      
In the daunting math of climate action, individual choices and government policies aren't adding up.

Solar panels are being nailed to rooftops, colossal wind turbines bestride the plains and oceans, and a million electric vehicles are on U.S. roads - and it isn't enough. Even if the world did an unlikely series of about-faces - halting deforestation, going vegetarian, paying $50 a ton carbon taxes, boosting energy efficiency, doubling car mileage, and more - it would not be enough. "There's no silver bullet," said Andrew Jones, co-founder of the modeling firm Climate Interactive. "There's silver buckshot: many actions in many domains." As the 24th U.N. conference on climate change kicks off this week, a steady drumbeat of scientific reports have sounded warnings about current climate trajectories. One warned of the need to curb global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius - 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit - over preindustrial levels instead of the widely accepted target of 2 degrees Celsius. Another warned of the growing gap between the commitments made at earlier U.N. conferences and what is needed to steer the planet off its current path to calamitous global warming. If it sounds downbeat, that's because it is. The world has waited so long that preventing disruptive climate change requires action "unprecedented in scale," the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said in an October report. William Nordhaus, the Yale University professor who just won the Nobel Prize for his work on the economics of climate change, recently described his outlook like this: "I never use the word 'pessimism'; I always use the word 'realism,' but I'd say it's a kind of dark realism today." Climate scientists and policy experts realize that they walk a fine line between jolting consumers and policymakers into action and immobilizing them with paralyzing pessimism about the world's ability to hit climate targets. "If you're driving on a highway and the car in front of you stops short, and you slam on brakes and realize that you're going to hit the guy no matter what, that's not the time to take your foot off the brake," said John Sterman, a professor of management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's business school. "And you certainly don't step on the gas." Sterman said that the world has missed the chance to contain warming without huge disruptions. "Now, it's technically possible to do that, but we don't have the policies in place," he said. "That's discouraging. But that just means we have to redouble our efforts." It's not that corporations and governments haven't attacked the problem or made breathtaking advances in energy technology. The cost of solar has plunged 78 percent for utility-scale projects since 2010. Over the same period, the cost of wind electricity fell nearly a quarter; the biggest turbines offshore now have arms weighing roughly 35 tons each that stretch nearly two football fields across. Even China is making some progress. While its rapidly growing economy keeps emissions rising overall, it is coughing out less carbon dioxide for every unit of economic output. But effective policy is lacking. Nordhaus advocates a whopping carbon tax, which the Climate Interactive model shows would kill off most coal, sharply reduce driving and boost purchases of more fuel efficient vehicles. Getting such a carbon tax adopted in the United States, however, is hard to imagine. Washington state voters in November rejected a $15-per-ton carbon "fee" after Big Oil companies poured more than $31 million into the state to block the measure. BP, which had endorsed a $40-per-ton nationwide tax, gave the most to defeat the bill. Congress hasn't shown any appetite for a carbon tax, either. A proposal to impose a $40-per-ton carbon tax and return the revenue to people in dividends has not caught fire yet. In France, President Emmanuel Macron has ignited protests by proposing fuel taxes he says are needed to fight climate change. "One cannot be on Monday for the environment," Macron said, "and on Tuesday against the increase of fuel prices." In an email, Nordhaus said that hitting the 2-degree target would require global carbon dioxide prices of about $250 a ton in 2020, and rising rapidly after that. "This assumes that all major countries are onboard and that economies can handle a large fiscal and trade shock in which energy expenditures rise by about $2 trillion in a few years." Nordhaus has blamed the lack of climate policy progress on the strong incentive for what economists call "free-riding." "People free-ride when they jump the turnstile on the subway," he said. "Nations free-ride in military treaties such as NATO when they enjoy the benefits of the strong U.S. military to protect them while doing little to pay for the common defense." And when it comes to climate change, he said, free-riding is "particularly pernicious." That's partly because international organizations lack the authority to enforce rules on wayward nations. In Poland, several major countries are expected to admit to missing the targets they agreed to at the Paris conference three years ago. One example is Brazil, whose new president Jair Bolsonaro, the "tropical Trump," has talked about clearing part of the Amazon for roads and development. That would damage the world's lungs - the trees that absorb carbon dioxide and pump out oxygen at high rates. There's lots of carbon to absorb. The world will need to sustain consumers' habits and living standards while replacing the energy industry's massive infrastructure. Every day, the world burns about 100 million barrels, or 4.2 billion gallons, of oil - up about 2 percent from the year before. Most of that goes into the gasoline tanks of cars and trucks; there are nearly 270 million on the road in the United States alone. The average age of those cars is 11.6 years, according to the Transportation Department, meaning that replacing the fleet with more-efficient or electric vehicles would take a long time. In November, the number of electric vehicles in the United States hit the 1 million mark. But that was three years later than President Barack Obama's target, first issued in 2009. And that makes only a small dent in the nation's greenhouse gas emissions. Thanks to the growth in the car market, in 2016 there were nearly 12 million more cars with internal combustion engines emitting greenhouse gases than there were in 2008. The math on coal is just as grim. Global coal consumption is running at more than 5 billion tons annually. In the United States alone, coal fills 4.4 million rail cars every year. Closing down U.S. and European coal-fired power plants, which are 40 years old on average, could happen, but the average age of coal plants in Asia is just 11 years. "Most emissions linked to energy infrastructure are already essentially locked-in," the International Energy Agency said in its November World Energy Outlook. A project off the coast of Belgium provides a good example of the need to run to stand still. In November, MHI Vestas, the world's largest maker of wind turbines, announced it would provide 23 of its new biggest turbines to a project in the Belgian North Sea. The massive turbines can power 137,471 German homes, the company said. Yet the number of German dwellings grew by 245,000 in 2017. Royal Dutch Shell chief executive Ben van Beurden noted in 2014 that solar and wind provide about 1 percent of the world's energy. "How on earth do we think that 1 percent is going to become 90 percent of a system twice as big as what it is by the middle of the century?" he asked. "Whether you like it or not, it won't happen." Even with large advances in renewable energy, he said, the share of world energy met by oil and gas would decline from 85 percent to 75 percent by the middle of the century, a time when the IPCC said net carbon dioxide emissions should drop to zero. "That might be a gloom-and-doom-type picture," van Beurden said. "But I think the real challenge is not so much how do we accelerate renewables but more about how do we decarbonize the system we have." Yet taking carbon out of the system means coming up with technology - and a carbon price to cover the costs. Companies already know how to take carbon dioxide from the air and stuff it below the earth's surface. But it's expensive, and unless it's used for enhanced oil recovery, it makes no economic sense without a carbon price. "Like a married couple that has put off saving for the future for too long, at some point it becomes nearly impossible to retire comfortably," Nigel Purvis, co-founder of the advocacy group Climate Advisers, wrote in 2015. "Given where global emissions are today and the urgency of reducing emissions, we just don't have time for a system that gradually increases climate ambition every five years - the numbers simply don't work." On Nov. 27, the U.N. Environment Program issued a report saying that the gap between countries' action pledges and the measures to limit warming is getting larger. While Obama had called the Paris deal "a turning point," the report says that seven major countries, including the United States, are falling short of the actions they pledged to take. The UNEP report also says that after three years of relatively stable emissions, global greenhouse emissions were up 1.2 percent in 2017. Purvis now says his views haven't changed. But, he pleaded, "Don't cast me as a pessimist." He said: "I am an optimist by nature, and I am blown away by progress in certain sectors. If you had told me 10 years ago that wind or solar would be as cheap as they are, I wouldn't have believed you." His assessment hasn't discouraged people who say that the world needs - and will inevitably develop - a breakthrough technology. They fall into a long tradition of people who place their faith in American inventiveness and know-how. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has invested in Breakthrough Energy Ventures, a $1 billion private investment fund, to fund researchers. "We need the basic research, but we have to pair that with people willing to fund high-risk breakthrough energy companies," Gates said in a video on the Breakthrough Energy website. He said "that's what gives us the chance of having a solution that really lets us not having to give up energy usage and yet not damage the environment. I am optimistic." One of the earliest climate change models was drawn up in 2004 by a pair of Princeton University professors - Robert Socolow, an engineer, and Stephen Pacala, an ecologist. Their 50-year scenario was optimistic: "Humanity already possesses the fundamental scientific, technical and industrial know-how to solve the carbon and climate problem for the next half-century," they wrote. They said that no breakthrough was necessary. In their model, a series of "wedges" could alter the trajectory of rising temperatures. The wedges included things such as: scaling up wind capacity tenfold; covering an area the size of New Jersey with solar panels; doubling the fuel efficiency of all cars; tripling the world's capacity of nuclear power; halting global deforestation; or planting new forests over an area the size of the Lower 48 United States. "I like to say that we decomposed a heroic challenge into a limited set of monumental tasks," Socolow wrote later. In 2011, Socolow wrote that the number of wedges needed had increased from seven to nine. In an interview, he said it is now approaching 10. Socolow now prefers to call climate action a horse race. At the moment, wind and solar are running ahead faster than expected, while nuclear power and carbon capture are trailing behind. He says he worries that the 2-degree target is setting people up for an inevitable letdown. "My worry is that people will start talking about game over and a line being crossed over irreparably," Socolow said. "Climate change is not like that."

          Union: Chicago teachers stage 1st U.S. charter school strike      Cache   Translate Page      
CHICAGO – Teachers employed by a Chicago charter school network took to the picket lines Tuesday in what their union described as the first strike at any of the privately run, taxpayer-funded schools in the U.S.

The strike at Acero’s 15 charter schools in Chicago after months of failed contract negotiations comes amid an increase in educator activism nationwide. Teachers in Kentucky, Arizona, Oklahoma, West Virginia and elsewhere converged on state capitols this year to fight for more pay and other funding issues.

Classes were canceled for Acero’s 7,500 predominantly Latino students, and Chicago Teachers Union president Jesse Sharkey said the strike would last “until they come back with an offer that respects our students and the people who educate them.”

CTU said the network’s 500 teachers are demanding smaller classes, more special education staff, salary increases and guaranteed protections for students and families living in the country without legal permission.

“Whether we are in West Virginia or Chicago, teachers want and need a voice in order for us to ensure that children get what they need,” said Randi Weingarten, president of the 1.7 million-member American Federation of Teachers, which includes the Chicago union. “That is why we are walking out for our kids today.”

Acero CEO Richard Rodriguez blamed the strike on an “anti-charter political agenda” by union leaders.

“There is absolutely no good reason to put students and parents through the upheaval of a strike,” Rodriguez said. “The sad fact is that interests from outside our community are using our students and our schools as a means to advance their national anti-charter platform.”

Charter schools are allowed in 44 states and are funded by public money while being operated by nonprofit organizations, such as Acero, or by for-profit companies. U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates are among their prominent backers.

Acero’s teachers are paid up to $13,000 a year less than their counterparts at Chicago’s traditional public schools, while working 20 percent more hours, according to the Chicago Teachers Union. The union also argues that with only one adult for up to 32 children per class for kindergarten through second grade, Acero’s classes are too large.

The striking teachers are also demanding that Acero agrees to not share information with federal immigration enforcement officials or allow them into the schools without a warrant.

Yecenia Iturve, a fourth-grade Acero teacher, said many of her students face anxiety over their family’s immigration status.

“Being a sanctuary school means that our students, and their family, have a safe place to come to. Our students need to know this is a safe place for them.” Iturve said. “With the way national politics are going, I think it’s necessary for this kind of language and protection to be in our contracts.”

About 26,000 Chicago Public Schools teachers staged a seven-day strike in September 2012 over issues such as the district’s demand for longer school days, along with disagreements over teacher evaluations and job security. The walkout idled 350,000 students in the nation’s third-largest school district as teachers pushed back against changes sought by Mayor Rahm Emanuel. The district pulled back from the brink of a second strike in October 2016.

          Forget Zuckerberg – the tech giants don’t have to own the future | John Harris      Cache   Translate Page      

Facebook, Google and Apple make the headlines, but there are many inspiring startups to dissipate the sense of techno-dread

A quarter of a century ago, the Canadian author Douglas Coupland published his third novel. Microserfs was the tale of a group of young Microsoft employees who decide to exit the realm of Bill Gates in Washington state and chase a dream of their own in California places that, back then, sounded like the epitome of futuristic magic: Palo Alto, Menlo Park. As well as prescient flashes of the world to come – “Beware of the corporate invasion of private memory,” warned one of its protagonists – what always stuck with me was its air of techno-optimism, perfectly crystallised right at the end, when the central character’s mother has a stroke and is rescued from silence by a set-up attached to an Apple Macintosh. She communicates via such staccato sentences as “I am here”, and “I feel U”; the novel’s closing pages capture her and her family marvelling at the fact that she has become “part woman/part machine, emanating blue Macintosh light”.

The book was published in 1995, when computers suddenly offered an ever-expanding window on to the world. Many of us had no doubt that the leap from old to new represented nothing but progress. By the start of this decade social media platforms were being hailed as a means of individual and collective emancipation. But where has this faith in the future gone?

'Cyberflashing': así es como el envío no solicitado de fotografías de penes se está volviendo un problema en el todo el mundo#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Antes de que existieran los smartphones y las conexiones inalámbricas había algo llamado 'flashing', que consistía en que una persona muchas veces vestido sólo con una gabardina se plantara frente a una persona, casi siempre mujeres, se abriera dicha gabardina para mostrar su pene. Bueno, pues esa práctica ha evolucionado en pleno siglo XXI a algo conocido como 'cyberflashing', que es básicamente lo mismo, sólo que ahora se aprovecha la tecnología para mantener el anonimato.

Si antes el 'flasher' podía ser perseguido e identificado, ahora con el 'cyberflashing' esto se vuelve una tarea casi imposible y que además, ataca a gran escala. Provocando así que esto se esté convirtiendo en un grave problema en varias regiones del mundo, donde además, técnicamente no es ilegal al no estar tipificado como delito.

Cuando ser un "pervertido" es más sencillo que nunca

Ios12 Iphone X Photos Share Airdrop

Esta práctica afecta por el momento sólo a los usuarios de iPhone o iPad a través de la función 'AirDrop', la cual permite enviar todo tipo de contenido entre dispositivos iOS y macOS de una forma sencilla con sólo un toque.

Apple permite configurar esta función ya sea para aceptar contenido de forma automática sólo de nuestros contactos o de cualquier persona. El problema radica en que la mayoría de los usuarios tienen configurado AirDrop para recibir material de cualquier persona, lo que los hace un blanco ideal para los ataques de 'cyberflashing'.

En este caso, el 'cyberflasher' aprovecha sitios concurridos para hacer su ataque. Desde su iPhone sólo debe seleccionar una imagen, casi siempre fotos o vídeos de un pene o con contenido sexual explícito, y en la sección de AirDrop empecerán a aparecer aquellos dispositivos que aceptan la recepción de contenido de forma automática y listo.

Después de esto, los usuarios con AirDrop "abierto" recibirán una notificación de que alguien está intentando enviarles fotos o vídeos, aquí el problema es que antes de poder rechazar tal envío aparecerá la imagen de lo que se está enviando, por lo que el daño, y el objetivo del atacante, está hecho.

Airdrop

La mala noticia es que a día de hoy no hay una forma de saber de dónde se originó el envío, ya que sólo veremos el nombre del dispositivo o su correo electrónico, algo que no ayuda con su rastreo de forma inmediata, más si nos encontramos en un sitio lleno de gente. Por lo anterior, este tipo de comportamiento está empezando a aparecer en sitios como aeropuertos, estaciones de tren, en los mismos trenes y aviones, así como en el metro, que se está volviendo el sitio ideal para el 'cyberflashing' debido a que la mayoría de gente está consultando su smartphone mientras viaja.

Nueva York quiere ser la primera en penalizar el 'cyberflashing'

A día de hoy no hay cifras oficiales del 'cyberflashing', sólo se sabe, casi siempre a través de quejas en redes sociales, que los trenes de Japón y el metro neoyorquino se han convertido en los sitios ideales para enviar fotografías con contenido sexual.

Ante esto, un grupo de legisladores en Nueva York son los primeros en el mundo en presentar una iniciativa de ley que busca criminalizar esta práctica. La ley busca penalizar con hasta un año de prisión y una multa de hasta 1.000 dólares a aquella "persona que envíe un video o imagen sexualmente explícita no solicitada a otra persona con la intención de acosar o molestar".

Hoy en Nueva York existe una ley que prohibe el acoso o amenazas a alguien por teléfono, telégrafo, correo postal o cualquier otra forma de comunicación por escrito. Lo que se persigue con esta iniciativa es actualizar esta ley para añadir "el envío de imágenes íntimas utilizando un dispositivo electrónico, como un smartphone o cualquier otro dispositivo de comunicación electrónico, incluidos los dispositivos capaces de enviar mensajes de texto o correos electrónicos".

Lamentablemente esto apenas se está discutiendo en Nueva York, mientras que en el resto de los países sigue en aumento llegando a nuevos sitios.

Airdrop Iphone

Por lo anterior, la recomendación es verificar la configuración de AirDrop en todos nuestros dispositivos de Apple, donde se deberá elegir la opción de 'Sólo contactos' para así evitar sorpresas y contenido no deseado, o bien, simplemente desactivarlo.

          Theresa May named world’s second most powerful woman by Forbes      Cache   Translate Page      

Theresa May has held on to her title as the second most powerful woman in the world as she fights to win UK Parliament’s approval of her Brexit deal, according to a ranking by Forbes. The Prime Minister was again behind German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who was named the world’s most powerful woman for the eighth straight year. The Forbes magazine list, announced on Tuesday, determines a power ranking for the world’s leading women by applying metrics like money, media and impact. The oldest woman in the top-100 is Queen Elizabeth II, who at age 92 ranked 23rd, while 28-year-old US pop star Taylor Swift was youngest (68th). Notable debutantes include tennis star Serena Williams (ranked 79th) and Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić (91st), while US politician Hilary Clinton dropped out of the list for the first time since it started in 2004. International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde of France ranked third, while US General Motors boss Marty Barra (4th) and philanthropist Melinda Gates (6th), the wife of Bill Gates, also ranked highly. The top-100 women control or influence nearly 2 trillion US dollars in revenue and oversee some five million employees, Forbes said. Forbes executive vice president Moira Forbes said the 2018 list reflects the volatile state of global business and politics. “The world’s most powerful women are leading amidst a tumultuous time where geopolitical tensions are on the rise, key economies are facing instability, and where trust in institutions is at an all-time low,” she said. Merkel, who recently announced she will not seek re-election after 13 years in power in Germany, retained the top spot for the eighth straight year.

          Ich habe mein ganzes Leben Apple-Computer benutzt — jetzt werde ich mir nie wieder einen kaufen      Cache   Translate Page      

macbook pro 20

Den größten Teil meines Lebens war ich mehr als nur ein Apple-Fan ich war ein Apple-Jünger.

Mein erster Computer war ein Macintosh 512Ke, der in meinem Geburtsjahr (1986) auf den Markt kam. Seitdem nutze ich Apple-Computer.

Ich wurde in der fünften Klasse einmal aus dem Unterricht geworfen, weil ich einen Anfall bekam, als mein Lehrer den Mut besaß, zu sagen, dass Steve Jobs und Bill Gates zusammenarbeiten sollten, um den Mac zu entwickeln. Ich war auf dem peinlichen Level absoluter Hingabe gegenüber Apple (dies ist auch eine verspätete Entschuldigung an alle, die mich damals ertragen mussten).

Wenn ich also sage, ich lasse Apple-Computer hinter mir, fühlt es sich an, als würde man die Kirche verlassen. Aber ich hab es getan und hier erkläre ich warum.

Wie alles begann

imac

Zunächst eine kleine Anekdote: Bevor Apple zum größte Tech-Unternehmen der Welt wurde, handelte es sich lediglich um Apple Computer, ein zwar unter Hardcore-Fans beliebtes, aber häufig heruntergemachtes durchschnittliches Tech-Unternehmen. Die Anhänger: hauptsächlich Künstler, Musiker und Geeks.

1997 war das Unternehmen „etwa 90 Tage vor der Pleite“, berichtete die „New York Times“ Anfang dieses Jahres.

Dann kam 1998 der erlösende Erfolg des iMac mit seiner berühmten blauen Farbe Bondi, gefolgt von seinen bonbonfarbenen Geschwistern.

Im Jahr 2007 kam das iPhone auf den Markt und läutete die Smartphone-Ära ein. (Es war nicht das erste Smartphone auf dem Markt, aber es hat definitiv die Branche radikal verändert.)

2007 der Anfang vom Ende für Apple

steve jobs macbook air 2008

Im Nachhinein war 2007 für mich und Apple der Anfang vom Ende. Auch als ich noch ein Jahrzehnt lang iPhones, iPads und MacBook Pros kaufte.

Das MacBook Air ist 2008 auf den Markt gekommen: ein ultraflaches, ultraleichtes Notebook, das laut „Gizmodo“ eine Ära des Designs einleitete, die sich heute in vielen Laptops widerspiegelt.

Mit diesem Design kam es jedoch zu einer weniger wünschenswerten Änderung, wie „Wired“ kommentiert: Der Arbeitsspeicher wurde an die Hauptplatine gelötet, die auch als Motherboard bezeichnet wird der sprichwörtliche Motor eines Computers, in dem die Mehrheit seiner Schlüsselkomponenten sitzt. Darüber hinaus war der Akku der Batterie ungewöhnlich schwer zu ersetzen, erforderte Spezialwerkzeuge und das Entfernen von 19 Schrauben.

Das war ungewöhnlich. Der Ausbau des Speichers und das Auswechseln der Batterie gehörten zu den häufigsten Modifikationen, die gerade zu diesem Zeitpunkt auch von Nicht-Mechanikern vorgenommen wurden. Das Macbook Air von 2008 war ein Bruch der Konvention, die das nächste Jahrzehnt der Designentscheidungen von Apple voraussagte weg vom Verbraucher und hin zu den hauseigenen Reparaturtechniken.

Als das MacBook Air zum ersten Mal auf den Markt kam

2012 retina macbook pro

Als das MacBook Air zum ersten Mal auf den Markt kam, haben Mac-Fans wie ich Platz für die nicht aufrüstbare Natur des Computers geschaffen. Immerhin war es das dünnste Notebook der Welt! Man musste nun einmal Zugeständnisse machen.

Der Trend hielt jedoch an. „Wired“ bezeichnete das Retina MacBook Pro aus dem Jahr 2012 wegen der gelöteten und geklebten Komponenten als „irreparabel, unhackbar, unhaltbar“. Die Webseit „iFixit“ gab den niedrigsten möglichen Wert (einen von zehn Punkten) für die Reparaturfähigkeit ein.

Apples Pro-Reihe war früher für Benutzer wie mich gedacht, die sowohl Leistung als auch Erweiterungsfähigkeit haben wollten. Aber ein Blick auf die Liste der Reparaturfähigkeiten von „iFixit“ zeigt, dass sich Retina Pros und alle Pro-Modelle ab 2012 einmal von einer benutzerfreundlichen sieben, für das frühe 2011 MacBook Pro, zu nie besser als zwei. Die MacBook Pros aus dem Jahr 2016 mit der Touch Bar enthielt RAM, eine Festplatte, VRAM und Batterien, die vom Benutzer nur schwer oder gar nicht gewechselt oder repariert werden konnten. „Gizmodo“ sprach von einem „Krieg gegen Upgrades“.

Um ein wenig mehr über diese Entwicklungen zu erfahren und um sicherzustellen, dass ich aus einem Mücken keinen Elefanten gemacht habe, sprach ich mit Taylor Dixon, einem Technik-Experten bei „iFixit“. Er bestätigte meinen Verdacht. „Wenn man zurückgeht und sich die frühen Powerbooks und Power Macs anschaut, die zu den ersten Mac Pros wurden, waren diese alle unglaublich bausteinförmig“, sagte er. „Daher hatte Apple seinen Ruf, so leistungsfähig und erweiterungsfähig zu sein.“

Die heutigen MacBooks sind anders, sagte Dixon. „Was zum Reparieren übrig bleibt, ist alles, was nicht in irgendeiner Weise mit der Logikplatine verbunden ist“, sagte er. „Vieles ist unglaublich schwer zu reparieren.“

Neue Tastatur kaum zu reparieren

Im vergangenen Sommer hatte Apple angekündigt, defekte Tastaturen seiner MacBook-Produkte ab 2015 kostenlos zu ersetzen, berichtete „Wired“. Die neueren Tastaturen sind bekannt dafür, durchzubrechen, da Partikel unter den Tasten eingeschlossen werden können, ohne dass sie auf einfache Weise herausgeholt werden können. 

Und auch diese Tastatur ist ihr ahnt es nur schwer oder gar nicht zu reparieren.

T2-Chip von Apple sorgt für Aufruhr

Der letzte Nagel im sprichwörtlichen Sarg für mich und Apple war die Entdeckung 2018, dass neue Macs den T2-Chip von Apple enthalten würden. Ein Prozessor, der Sicherheitsfunktionen bedient, einschließlich der Art von Ersatzteilen, die in der Maschine erlaubt sind.

„Es ist sehr wahrscheinlich das Ziel, mehr Kontrolle darüber zu haben, wer Reparaturen durchführen kann, indem der Zugang zu Teilen eingeschränkt wird“, sagte der Chef von „iFixit“, Kyle Wiens, Anfang des Monats gegenüber „The Verge“. „Das könnte ein Versuch sein, von unabhängigen Reparaturanbietern mehr Marktanteile zu gewinnen. Oder es könnte eine Drohung sein, um das autorisierte Netzwerk aufrecht zu erhalten. Wir wissen es einfach nicht.“

Dixon verwies auf den Fall des iPhone 6, bei dem Benutzer, die den Home-Button repariert hatten, plötzlich feststellen mussten, dass das Telefon deaktiviert war. Apple stellte schließlich die Funktionalität des Telefons wieder her, doch für viele blieb die Fingerabdruck-Identifizierungsfunktion nach Angaben von „Techcrunch“ deaktiviert.

Schlechte Reparaturfähigkeit aus Feindseligkeit oder geschäftlichen Gründen

Die Ernüchterung über etwas, mit dem man aufgewachsen ist und das man geliebt hat, ist oft wie ein Tod durch tausend Stiche. „Es ist wirklich einfach, Apple als Bösewicht darzustellen“, sagte Dixon. „Ich denke nicht, dass wir das extra betonen müssen.“ 

Aber was ist, wenn Feindseligkeit ein gutes Geschäft ist? In die Apple-Läden gehen zu müssen, anstatt den Computer zu Hause zu reparieren und zertifizierte Produkte von Apple anstelle von Drittanbietern kaufen zu müssen, sind zweifellos kluge finanzielle Schritte für das Unternehmen.

Aber ich mag es nicht, Dinge zu besitzen, mit denen ich weder etwas basteln noch etwas reparieren kann. Sowohl aus Sparsamkeit als auch aus dem Wunsch heraus, etwas weniger Abfall in der Welt zu erzeugen. Wie Business Insider Anfang des Jahres feststellte, wird Apple zunehmend zu einer Luxusmarke. Luxuskäufer könnten sich mit einer geplanten Veralterung der Geräte wohler fühlen.

Wie auch immer. Ich bin mir sicher, dass das Milliarden-Dollar-Unternehmen Apple mich nicht vermissen wird.

Hat jemand Empfehlungen für einen guten PC?

          Usia Tepat Memberikan Anak Gawai Pribadi Menurut Bill Gates      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta – Bill Gates pernah terpilih sebagai orang terkaya di dunia. Dengan kekayaan yang melimpah, tentu saja ia bisa memberikan banyak materi termasuk gawai pribadi pada keluarganya, terutama anak-anaknya.

Selama ini Bill Gates dikenal sebagai seorang tokoh bisnis, investor, filantropis, penulis asal Amerika Serikat, serta pendiri dan mantan CEO Microsoft, perusahaan perangkat lunak yang ia dirikan bersama Paul Allen. Tapi apakah Bill memang memanjakan ketiga anaknya dengan memberi mereka gawai sejak kecil?

 

Kehidupan kita saat ini memang sulit dilepaskan dari gawai. Mulai dari bangun pagi, sampai kembali menutup mata, rasanya tak bisa berhenti menggunakan gawau. Dilansir dari Bio Health Plus, kebiasaan ini akan berdampak negatif kalau terus dilakukan.

Bukan hanya orang dewasa, anak-anak pun sudah banyak kecanduan gawai baik untuk bermain game maupun menggunakan media sosial. Sangat penting bagi orangtua untuk menentukan dan mengontrol waktu yang dihabiskan anak-anak untuk bermain dengan gawai.

Yang mungkin jadi banyak pertanyaan para orangtua, berapa usia yang tepat untuk mengizinkan anak memiliki gawai sendiri. Mungkin apa yang dilakukan Bill Gates bisa dijadikan bahan pertimbangan.

Ia ternyata baru menginzinkan ketiga anaknya untuk mempunyai gawai pribadi pada usia 14 tahun. Pria berusia 63 tahun ini merasa di umur 14 ketiga anaknya sudah cukup siap secara mental dalam menggunakan gawai.

Peran Penting Orangtua

Kalau batasan yang diterapkan Bill Gates menurut Anda terlalu ketat dan konservatif, mungkin bisa mengikuti proyek penelitian Children & Technology: Today's Evolution of Native Digital yang diterbitkan pada 2016.

Penelitian ini, menyebutkan usia rata-rata yang ideal bagi seorang anak bisa mendapatkan gawai pertamanya adalah 10,3 tahun. Penelitian tersebut juga menunjukkan kalau 50 persen anak-anak sudah mendapatkan akun media sosial, seperti Facebook dan Instagram, pada usia rata-rata 11,4 tahun.

Peran orangtua untuk mengatur waktu anak-anak terhadap penggunaan gawai juga sangat penting. Alasan utamanya, karena orangtua adalah contoh utama bagi anak-anak mereka.

Apa yang dilakukan Bill Gates maupun hasil peneltian tersebut mungkin bisa menjadi pertimbangan dan bahan masukan bagi para orangtua terhadap penggunaan gawai oleh anak-anak.

Inteligência Artificial para quem?

 Por Hazel Henderson | Tradução: Marianna Braghini



 Os humanos estamos no absurdo estágio em nossa evolução tecnológico em que parece que abandonamos nosso bom senso. Bilhões são gastos por governos, corporações e investidores no treino de algoritmos de computadores (ou seja, programas de computador) na atual e insana corrida para criar as chamadas inteligências “artificiais”, largamente anunciadas como “AI”. Enquanto isso, o treinamento de nossas crianças e seus cérebros (já superiores aos algoritmos de computador) é sub-financiado; as escolas estão dilapidadas, instaladas em condições precárias, frequentemente em áreas poluídas enquanto os professores são mal pagos e precisam de maior respeito. Como nossas prioridades tornaram-se tão enviesadas?

 Na realidade, não há nada de artificial nos algoritmos ou sua inteligência: o termo AI é uma mistificação! O termo que descreve a realidade é “Aprendizado de máquina treinadas por humanos”, na atual e insana luta para treinar estes algoritmos a mimetizar inteligência humana e funcionamento cerebral. Na revista de tecnologia Wired, de outubro de 2018, uma cientista pioneira da computação, Fei-Fei LI, palestra numa audiência do Congresso dos EUA e sublinha esta verdade. Ela diz que “humanos treinam estes algorítmos” e fala a respeito dos erros horrendos que estas máquinas fazem ao “des-identificar” pessoas. Emprega o termo “entra preconceito – sai preconceito” [bias in – bias out], para atualizar o velho ditado de computadores, “entra lixo – sai lixo” [garbage in – garbage out].

 A professora LI descreveu como estamos cedendo nossa autoridade a estes algoritmos para julgar quem é contratado, quem irá para a prisão, quem pode conseguir um empréstimo, uma hipoteca ou boas taxas de seguro — e como estas máquinas codificam nosso comportamento, mudam as regras e nossas vidas. Li está agora de volta à Universidade de Stanford, depois de passar um tempo como especialista em ética na Google, e lançou uma fundação para promover a verdade sobre AI, já que ela própria sente-se responsável por seu papel, ao inventar alguns destes algoritmos. Celebrada como uma pioneira neste campo, LI diz que “Não há nada de artificial na AI. Ela é inspirada por pessoas, é criada por pessoas e — mais importante — ela impacta pessoas”.

 Como as mega empresas de tecnologia invadem nossa cultura e programas, no mundo inteiro, com seus valores de curto-prazismo e obcecados por dinheiro? A lógica parace ser: “mova-se rápido e quebre as coisas”; rompa os atuais sistemas; corra para multiplicar e sacar dinheiro, por meio de uma oferta pública de ações na Bolsa (IPO). Estes valores são discutidos por duas figuras do meio, em detalhes chocantes. Antonio G. Martinez escreveu “Chaos Monkeys” (2016); Emily Chang, da Bloomberg, em “Brotopia” (2018). Estes autores explicam em profundidade como o treinamento destes algoritmos está tão errado, pois subconscientemente mimetiza empreendedores — principalmente homens, misóginos, frequentemente brancos, e suas tecnologias, monopolizados por um viés mercadológico e suas fantasias quase sempre adolescentes e ultra-liberais.

 Descrevo todas estas questões com a tomada, pela Inteligência Artificial, de múltiplos setores econômicos — desde a indústria, transporte, educação, comércio, mídia, lei, medicina, agricultura, aos bancos, agências de seguro e de financiamento. Enquanto muitos destes setores tornaram-se mais eficientes e lucráveis para seus acionistas, minha conclusão em “The Idiocy of Things”, critica a conexão de todos os eletrodomésticos nas chamadas smart homes como nociva e como invasão de privacidade. Apelo para que os humanos reassumam o controle dos computadores e setores da Ciênca da Informação. Estão super-financiados e super-remunerados. Focam-se, muito frequentemente, em eficiência corporativa e redução de custos, dirigidos pelas taxas de lucro exigidas por Wall Street.

 Reivindico uma extensão da legislação inglesa, datada de 1215, que instituiu o “habeas corpus”, afirmando que humanos são donos de seus próprios corpos. Esta extensão deveria abranger a posse de nossos cérebros e toda a informação que geramos, em um atualizado “habeas corpus de informação”. Desde maio de 2018, a legislação europeia ratificou isso com a General Data Protection Regulation (Regulação para Proteção Geral dos Dados, ou GDPR, em inglês). Ela busca assegurar que os indivíduos, ao usar plataformas de redes sociais, ou qualquer outro sistema social, detenham efetivamente a propriedade de todos seus dados pessoais.

 Nesse sentido, algumas leis estão começando a enfrentar o uso desumano de seres humanos, que emprega nossas habilidades, adquiridas com esforço, para treinar algoritmos que depois nos substituem! Em seguida, os treinadores dos algoritmos de computador empregam pessoas desempregadas, forçadas a sobreviver na “economia de bicos”, em sites como o Mechanical Turk e Task Rabbit, e pagam o mínimo para a alimentação de dados que treinam estes algoritmos!

 O cientista Jaron Lanier, em “Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Now” [“Dez argumentos para deletar suas contas nas redes sociais agora”], de 2018, mostra como estas redes estão nos manipulando com algoritmos para arquitetar mudanças em nosso comportamento. Chamam nossa atenção com clickbaits e conteúdos que estimulam nossas emoções, medos e raiva, explorando algumas divisões de nossa sociedade para nos manter em seus sites. Isso ajuda a dirigir anúncios de venda, seus gigantescos lucros, em veloz crescimento global. É hora de repensar tudo isso, para além dos lúgubres alarmes feitos por Bill Gates, Elon Musk e o falecido Stephen Hawking. Segundo estes, os algoritmos, que estamos treinando, em breve assumirão o controle e poderão nos ferir e matar, como fez HAL no filme “2001”.

 Por que, então, gastamos montanhas de dinheiro para treinar máquinas enquanto sub-investimos em nossas crianças, professores e escolas? Treinar o cérebro das crianças deve se tornar prioridade! Em vez de treinar máquinas para sequestrar nossa atenção e vender nossos dados pessoais para marketeiros em troca de lucro, deveríamos reorientar nossos fundos e triplicar os esforços para treinar e pagar professores, melhorar escolas e currículos pedagógicos incluindo cursos de responsabilidade civil, justiça, valores comunitários, liberdade mediante “habeas corpus” (mulheres também são donas de seus próprios corpos!) e como ética e confiança são a base de todos os mercados e sociedades.

 Por que fazer esforços muito dispendiosos para aumentar a capacidade de aprendizagem das máquinas? Por que ensinar algoritmos a reconhecer faces humanas, guiar drones assassinos, falsificar imagens de vídeo e modificar ainda mais nosso comportamento e capturar nosso olhar com clickbaits, planejando e distribuindo conteúdo que enraivece e indigna — apronfundando a divisão entre os seres humanos e desmantelando as democracias?

 Precisamos enfrentar as ambições de Big Brother dos novos oligopólios tecnológicos. Como um sábio cientista da NASA nos lembrou em 1965 sobre os valores humanos, seguindo “O Uso Humano dos Seres Humanos” (1950) de Norbert Weiner: “O Humano (sic) é o sistema de computador de menor custo, não-linear, capaz de servir a todos os propósitos; e pode ser produzido em massa, por trabalho não qualificado”.

  É tempo de bom senso!

Former President George H.W. Bush died last Friday at the age of 94.

His death comes just months after the passing of his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush. She passed away in April at the age of 92 after battling COPD and congestive heart failure.

Bush was a war hero, US congressman, diplomat, CIA director, and vice president before ascending to the highest office in the land. 

The Bush family remains one of the most polarizing and powerful political dynasties in American history. 

Most known for putting two of its members in the Oval Office, the family has had members serve in both the executive and legislative branches of the federal government. These political successes followed lucrative ventures in both the oil and financial industries.

With the death of the former president first lady, we're looking back at how this family came to earn such influence.

The graphic below depicts the family lineage of the Bush dynasty.
