What’s the tech behind Question 1?

October 13, 2020 | technology | No Comments

The initiative is aimed at rectifying a loophole in the original Right To Repair measure, passed eight years ago, which required automakers to sell to independent repair shops in Massachusetts the same digital diagnostic tools and software they provide to their own dealerships.

Now, drive a Ford or a Toyota or a Mercedes into pretty much any repair shop, not just here in Massachusetts but across the country, and a mechanic can plug into the vehicle and talk to all of its onboard computers.

But the carmakers stopped short of providing those mechanics with remote access to the data your car can transmit wirelessly, a huge convenience for vehicle owners, who don’t have to first drive to the repair shop to have a problem diagnosed. A large and growing number of vehicles are capable of this — GM cars equipped with the company’s OnStar system, for instance.

“This is like

Just as it’s important to visit the doctor for routine checkups, the health of your website needs regular assessments as well. A website audit can help you answer important questions such as “How is my website performing?” and “How can I improve it?”

Conducting an audit of your website is a great way to maintain its health and make sure it’s still doing what it’s supposed to do: communicating who you are as a firm, raising brand awareness, sharing helpful and engaging content, and generating and converting leads. A website audit helps determine what’s working, what needs a refresh, or if you might need a more thorough redesign. Here are some of the valuable insights you can glean from a website audit:

Analytics

A website’s analytics are the primary objective tool for assessing the current health of your website, and the analytics should inform all insights, critiques,

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department on Wednesday unveiled a proposal to reform a legal immunity for internet companies and follows through on President Donald Trump’s bid from earlier this year to crack down on tech giants.

The proposal aims to curb Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which offers big tech platforms like Alphabet’s Google GOOGL.O and Facebook FB.O protections from liability over content posted by users.

WHAT IS SECTION 230?

The core purpose of Section 230 is to protect the owners of any “interactive computer service” from liability for anything posted by third parties. The idea was that such protection was necessary to encourage the emergence of new types of communications and services at the dawn of the Internet era.

Section 230 was enacted in 1996 as part of

The Python Software Foundation has released the second release candidate (RC) of Python 3.9 and is warning users to watch for deprecation warnings as it drops backward compatibility for unsupported Python 2.7. 

Python maintainers stopped supporting Python 2.7 this April, some five years after support was originally meant to end – and 12 years after Python creator Guido van Rossum announced Python 3. 

The main highlight from Python 3.9 RC2 is that it removes most backward-compatibility layers for Python 2.7. Python 3.8 had those layers; however, it was released in October 2019 when Python 2.7 remained supported.

The final version of Python 3.9 is scheduled for release in early October, so Python maintainers believe it makes sense to remove the 2.7 compatibility layers.    

“When Python 2.7 was still supported, many functions were kept for backward compatibility with Python 2.7. With the end of

In the field of computer forensics, as in the field of law, procedures in civil cases differ somewhat from those in criminal cases. The collection of data and presentation of evidence may be held to different standards, the process of data collection and imaging can be quite different, and the consequences of the case may have very different impacts.

A couple of quick definitions may be in order. Criminal law deals with offenses against the state – the prosecution of a person accused of breaking a law. Such offenses may of course include crimes against a person. A government body, or the representative of a government body accuses the person of having committed the offense, and the resources of the state are brought to bear against the accused. Guilty outcomes can result in fines, probation, incarceration, or even death.

Civil law covers everything else, such as violations of contracts and … Read More
