Orzo soia macchiato caffè

Una invenzione che ho fatto io, o qualcuno lo ha già provato?

Everyone is talking about Net Neutrality today, because the Trump administration wants to eliminate this Title II stuff that was apparently added during the Obama administration in 2014. My personal thoughts are these:
Global IDs are on their way!
Check out this Ethereum project: so imagine a future where instead of having username and passwords for every single service we use, we only use one. "That already exists!" you might think. Indeed today you can log into many sites using Google or Facebook credentials. But that's Google or Facebook! It's not something "of the people". Here we are talking about an ID which is of the people, by the people for the people completely decentralized. Open to anyone. Anyone can create their own unique ID and have their own rights to it on this system. It's called uPort. Yeah, i know, it's still in alpha, you can't really create your ID yet.

While this might not become the ultimate ID system used by government agencies (even though technically it could) and all the rest, it's certainly a first step in the right direction.

Blockchain as Our Future

In case you still have not understood how much of a game changing technology blockchains can be, this article from the World Government Summit gives a pretty good picture.

why is this article cool?

It's super cool, because humanity now has a way to solve the big messy global transition from paper to electronics in an interoperable, functional and scalable way! And this article will give you example of exactly how this can become true and how game changing it will be from a technical, medical and governmental perspective.

So just the other day a friend in the USA asked me what Italians thought of Trump being the new POTUS. And i realized i didn't really have a clear picture, so i decided to ask a bunch of friends. And here's a collection of what i got back.
KeyBank: Trust Lost
KeyBank is not able to keep me as a customer after having effectively taken money away against my will. In October i went to a KeyBank branch, i wanted to move some money out of the savings account. I remembered i might have had a limit as to how much money had to be in the account before it got charged, so i asked the clerk to verify before i transferred money out of the account. The clerk confirmed that there would be no service charge or fee for any lower limit in the account,…
Somebody just wrote that to me, after i had done something they apparently liked, and my mind started thinking again.
Bello SPID, bella idea. Meno male che BancoPosta non ha ancora disabilitato il login normale: ho creato l'account nuovo, ma con SPID non riesco ad entrare. Ho una connessione scarsa, comunque con nome utente e password tradizionali BancoPosta sono riuscito ad entrare, con SPID no. Continuate a lavorarci su.
A pretty ambitious goal at Factom http://www.factom.com: to create software that makes it impossible to change the past and point that software at places where it solves valuable business problems. Basically create software that is impossible to hack. Impossible it a big word, and i like ambitious projects! Factom http://www.factom.com works with blockchains. Factom http://www.factom.com has been backed by Gates Foundation https://bitcoinmagazine.…
This screenshot says it all: the first line, the header, shows the installed iOS version: Screen Shot 2016-12-07 at 13.02.54.png So iTunes would like me to update from 10.1.1 to 10.1.1... hmm.
I've personally struggled with this concept for a long time. When i thought about it, the options i would come up seemed to be only 3:
  1. Vendors: those who develop the systems that providers use to collect and store clinical data retrieved from patients.
  2. Providers: the doctors who provide medical care also by collecting and storing patient's data in systems developed by the vendors.
  3. Patients.
I had a server with a complex network configuration: 2 network interface cards, with various VLAN configurations. When upgrading, i decided to use Migration Assitant only for the Network Settings. It's nice, so i deselected everything but the Network Settings. It took 16 minutes and a reboot. When the server came back up, guess what? Network Settings were not imported at all! I think it actually imported some other settings, but no Network Settings. Boo.

Why does iPhone ask for confirmation to turn Location Services off?
Update: Coincidentally, a few weeks after i posted this entry, the new update of iOS removed this behaviour. Have you ever noticed? To turn off Location Services, there is this BIG RED button, (which is rarely used throughout the iPhone, maybe just for those critical things, like reset the iPhone to factory settings) asking for confirmation, […]
Not Guilty
Ads like these could be illegal, in my opinion. Not only for the content of the ad per se, also for promoting anti-ethical behavior: it’s a message saying “it’s ok not to be ethical, you can do it too, and you won’t suffer from negative consequences”. The same message comes across by the fact that […]
Gravity
Visto in inglese in 3D  in Stati Uniti, suggerito da varie persone qui, tutte ne hanno parlato molto bene. Durante il film ero sicuramente molto teso e molto coinvolto: il film non è carente di suspence. A fine film sono rimasto un po’ deluso dalla storia, in quanto me lo aspettavo più profonda, con più […]

From http://phoneblocks.com: “Everyday we throw away millions of electronic devices, because they get old and become worn out. But usually it’s only one of the components that causes the problem. The rest of the device works fine but is needlessly thrown away. Simple because electronic devices are not designed to last. This makes electronic waste […]

Eu considero comunicações de Multiplus Fidelidade SPAM
Embora os emails que recebo do endereço Multiplus <comunicacao@multiplusfidelidade.com.br> de promoções tenhas o link “Se você não deseja mais receber nossos e-mails, cancele sua inscrição aqui.”, clicando por aí, chego em um site bonitinho que me da a possibilidade de cancelar a minha inscrição. Tudo beleza. Detalhe: já cancelei umas 6-7 vezes e continuo recebendo… Multiplus […]
Why do banks limit Statement history? Perché c’è un limite di Estratti Conto online?
I have a PayPal account, and when i go in the Statements section, they only have a history of the past 3 months of Statements, forcing me to download them. I have noticed several such limitation with accounts i have with other banks. Maybe not 3 months, but 2 years, or 3 years. In the […]
