It's apparently OK and really necessary to shove DRM onto every video. It's apparently completely not OK or unnecessary to have stable quality, or ability to buffer the video in the highest possible.

Instead I can apparently load whole bs thing in a blurry mess, not even having 5s of watchable content. Because it obviously knows better what I want and how to treat my internet connection.

Also, this whole "if we found such vulnerabilities, the manufactureres probably pay no attention to security whatsoever" part on the website and at the beginning of the report... it's so obnoxious... and I think it qualifies as FUD. (Couldn't find criteria of when sth is FUD, wikipedia isn't very helpful here :/ )

@Wolf480pl
It may be that those flaws will not allow porting coreboot but more like another me_cleaner (psp_cleaner).

I think these flaws may actually be a reason to buy more AMD, not less.
Think of it: being able to play around with the firmware of the PSP and the chipset... being able to run port coreboot to your Ryzen... sounds like a lot of fun.

I'm not saying these "AMD flaws" findings aren't real, but it looks like these people are trying to spread way more fear than necessary.

Then there's a lot of fishy stuff, like
- too much effort went into the website's design
- the website has lots of infographics and not-very-specific text, repeating the same things over and over again
- the whitepaper doesn't look like a whitepaper, and seems to be written with non-technical people in mind, especially the first few pages
- they have a huge legal disclaimer that says they may have financial interest in the value of AMD shares
- cts-labs.com exists for less than 1 year

Ok, so these "AMD flaws" are nowhere near anything like Meltdown or Spectre.

According to their "whitepaper", it lets you pwn your PSP and chipset if you already have root access on the main CPU. In the worst case, it's like the Intel ME BUP bug from december.
It's useful for researchers, coreboot porting, breaking DRM, etc. But it's no use for a remote (or even unprivileged local) attacker.

Their website makes it look way more dangerous than it is.

I'm not talking exclusively about e-mail - it's also about XMPP, ActivityPub, and any other federated network.

Should spam filtering be done clientside or serverside?
Can it be technically done clientside only?
Can it be realistically done clientside only?

I'm interested in a discussion. Links to existing research/rants/opinions are also appreciated.

"..and increased tourism to the prefecture would definitely be one way of earning the trust of the rest of Japan, and the world."

"Seven years after earthquake, Fukushima teen says March 11 is an “ordinary day” in the prefecture" soranews24.com/2018/03/12/seve

Very worth reading and understanding.
Then, thinking about Bandai-Asahi National Park to visit. #Fukishima#Fukushimaprefecture
