CBS News and 60 Minutes have finally figured out the H1B program has been abused by companies are years.

See -- http://www.cbsnews.com/news/how-h-1b-visas-have-been-abused-since-the-beginning/

Rather late, IMHO. On the other hand, at least this is getting wider publicity and finally being exposed for what it is.

He said that happened to one voting machine, which is a really small outlier. And the effect was to create impossible results ("reported many more votes than people in the precinct".)

In the last election, rubber stamping illegal aliens and felons as capable of voting in order to skew the popular vote Democratic toward Clinton was a far, far greater effect than random bit errors.

Of course by the tunnel vision criteria of "voter fraud" all of these results are perfectly valid and stupid libtards will argue that convicted felons and illegals should be able to vote, no problem.

Yeah but voting machine "errors" are clearly due to fraud and schemes, not gamma rays. Saying "I guess it's gamma rays!" is clearly sarcastic.

If David genuinely means, without sarcasm, that the errors were due to gamma rays I hope he'll say that clearly, and note which recount/audit he's referring to.

I don't think David is being sarcastic. I've read that computer scientists attribute a certain low percentage of data errors to gamma rays that change bits in earthbound computer hardware. As the kids say, it's a thing.

We need an emoji for "can't tell if sarcastic".

Why does this happen.

It could be due to a bit flip because of interstellar radiation. According to one report, that happened to one voting machine that reported many more votes than people in the precinct.

You'll never know why it claims your password is invalid.  I don't have a password to get into my phone.  I just don't keep anything on it and I don't have the Apple password saved on it.   I have a couple of contacts and pictures and some free apps.  I've never trusted the security on the phone.

I used to use it for work a lot, but now that I'm not working I don't really need it much anymore.  Its an iPhone 4S and I'll never spend the money to buy another iPhone.  I have a tablet that I like better.

I have used Win10 and dont like it. We are still on Win7 in my house and we arent moving off of it till we have no choice. There is all kinds of odd stuff with the interface, they moved things around for no reason. You have to wonder what they were thinking about.

Regardless you can turn off the Windows updates via software. There are packages that let you regain control of the machine. Read this:

From what I have seen in the past few weeks I think all the OS's are compromised by the intelligence agencies. But with proprietary systems such as OS X and Windows you really have no idea whats going on. And thats just the way they like it. Plus they are bloated.

I have had Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on an older HP laptop for about a month now. Frankly after using it for a month there really is no reason to use Windows. 99% of what most people do on a computer can be done on Ubuntu. That means: surfing the web, reading email, music library and watching videos. Ubuntu does all of this with ease. On this old HP laptop Ubuntu is far faster than Win7.

Most people barely use MS Office at home so why not use Libre Office or the Google products. I had a fear of both. Guess what? The fear is completely unfounded. It reads my resume and spreadsheets. Are they as sophisticated as MS Office, NOPE. But for what most people do with MS Office, LibreOffice and Google are good enough.

So what do you need Windows for? NOTHING.
