Undoubtedly the biggest IT story of the day - if not the year - is the news that David Cameron's custom "iPad app" is now in testing. All credit to the BBC for breaking this sensational development. Furious exchanges took place on Twitter this morning as both the Beeb and the Daily Telegraph claimed credit for the scoop. Fair …
Developed in house
"It has been developed in-house using an open-source platform, modifying existing off-the-shelf technology"
It's an HTML page then..?
The big red button
So does that terminate a call, or launch our nukes?
Does the app include GPS on his daughter?
Re: "Controlling Britain"
So you faked your death, Mr Saville.
The whole lot's controlled by Angela Merkel?
Popbitch is currently down due to an attempted hacking. It will be back and available for governmental guidance once it's been hardened.
The one Force power Vader never had...
(I'm so sorry)
I've read the article.
1) It doesn't say it's an "iPad App". It says: "It is a web app".
2) The word "sentiment" is not used.
3) It doesn't say that it is exclusive to Cameron.
So, to paraphrase, almost every piece of information provided about the article turns out to be fanciful and bogus.
Same old, same old.
They definitely called it an iPad App on R4 "Today" at breakfast time.
A question for Radio 4 to ask.
And when does a Ministerial iPad App becomes a Stealthy Phish Program .... or is that putting the cart before the horse in this particular case?
Re: Radio 4
They also described Jeremy Hunt as something else a while back. Sometimes they get things right, sometimes not.
Prime minister using iPad to control ANY aspect of public life? WE'RE ALL DOOMED!
In a hark back to his Uni days..
...is he now a member of the Bullshi**ng-don Club?
"Revealed! Prime Minister's iPad 'dashboard' for
Fixed that for ya.
So the govt of USA sees all that he does
If it is on his iPad then it is controllable by Apple and so all manner of settings & data flow to Cupertino. Under the patrior act the govt of USA will want to see all of that. I don't like the idea of what my prime minister does being seen by the CIA.
Re: So the govt of USA sees all that he does
You think it isnt already? ***goes to look for tinfoil hat***
For real style...
...the could use a setting like Project Cybersyn (not, truly, not what you think). Seems to have been just as effective as the web/ipad/whatever app that they may or may not be making...
"Hmmm, housesprices climbing on Pleasant Crest?" ka-ZING! "Taken care of, Prime Minister"
Cameron ... the one finger typer
He needs a screen so he doesn't have to read big words.
Pure bloody Apple PR. At least we know the Americans can read what he is doing - they love tapping cell systems. Ask the Greek government.
So now I know what PopBitch is and I wish I didn't.
Ah, c'mon, I didn't know either, and now I've got cramps from laughing!
It's always a hoot to see what people that don't think are thinking!
"sharks may, or may not, have frickin' lasers"
Sharks without frickin' lasers? What sort of abomination is this?
No, Mr Bond
I expect you to die!
SIMS Prime Minister, so realistic he hasn't yet realized its a game!
