and what ports/destinations/packets/strings etc we could watch for at the perimeter..
From the blog post, it appears looking on HTTP for some_magic_code1 might help. Here's hoping that's a good start.
Any snort rules yet?
A big "+1" to the frustrating issue of having to use iTunes as well. That means firing up my main machine upstairs, and firing all my music into it, then making a playlist, then syncing. Got a tune on my work PC I want to copy onto it? Not a chance... take it home on USB and go through the whole process.
Drag and drop... it's not exactly rocket science. That said, because of this I ditched iTunes months back for the excellent Spotify. Which of course is cross-platform. Still always been a major bugbear however. I hate iTunes with a spectacular passion. It's awful software for what's supposed to be a premium product.
The 4s is my last iPhone. I love it, but the walled garden.. I've had enough. My Nexus 7 tablet has convinced me Android is the way forward. All those features in my phone and I can't access half of them? Something as simple as to bluetooth a pic or a contact? Nope! Come on..!
Eyeing up the Sony Experia Z.. Find the Galaxy S3 too big and the S4, well sheesh... Will see what's available come October/upgrade time tho.
Aren't you all rather assuming that these people in a different country knew it was stolen? Fuck knows how many hands it passed through, but it's a bit of a stretch to imagine that the tea-leaf in London personally handed it to this Iranian punter down some shady street. Who knows, it might have turned up in a local 2nd-hand shop there.
But yeah.. you feel free to hang them anyway. Y'know.. just in case...
Ever been in a second-hand shop in this country? Positive nothing in there has been nicked and passed-off?
When I go to my local gig-hut, buy two tickets over the counter, on the night of the event as I'm going in, and with cash, my "£2.50 booking fee" is illegal then?
It's an argument I've had with them a few times, does this help out at all - or only for online matters?
one way or another..
.. I'll be jumping the iPhone ship when my contract is up. Having lived with a Nexus 7 as my little companion, I'm just loving how open it all is. I'm sick of the iTunes chain, and the walled-garden. The not-being-able to use half the phones features (bluetooth a pic to my mate? Nope!).
Likely a Galaxy then, but quite impressed with the Sony Experia Z. Either way, when the contract runs out, that'll be the last Apple product I ever have. Sorry Apple, it's a great piece of hardware, but I'm just sick of all the shackles.
Doesn't that imply that they rolled out the same upgrade to multiple datacenters at the same time, cooking all the hosts in multiple DCs my mailbox is replicated on? At/near the same time?
Unless they're admitting my mailbox is only protected with inter-Datacentre replication.. which is hardly in the spirit of disaster-recovery. Whichever way it falls, both are a bit of a fail...
(Assuming they use replication for protection at all.. can't imagine someone is there changing tapes for all this constantly.....)
I waited for one that Plusnet had arranged, sat with clear view of the front door. Just as well..
I saw the van pull up. I saw him get out. He came bounding up, never knocked, slipped a "Sorry I missed you" card through the door - carefully - and was on his way back to his van when I ran out and collared him...
All because my wiring needed to be checked. Apparently, my wires know the difference between daytime and nighttime, and that's why it's slower in the evening... Plusnet said "not contention", I of course had to wait in.
So he got to work, everything fine. I explained it was obviously contention but plusnet assured me it wasn't. He the phoned his BT helpdesk and they said "yup, hot virtual path" and switched me to another. Problem solved. So, a good result - but was still unimpressed at the "missed you" bit. If I hadn't been watching at that minute, I'd have wasted the day.
Brian Krebs had an interesting postscript to this...
Which subsequently led to him tweeting..
"I love when I put up a story about a carding forum and suddenly see lots of referral traffic from other carding forums."
OK, I'm curious
How can they actually prove this?
"Look, due to our influence - THIS never happened!!
If we hadn't been involved, another 20 thousand people would have downloaded this film. Take our word for it, seriously !!"
Back of the net ! Get in !
You're a laughing-stock.
How about voice recognition, so if you shout "giggidy-giggidy!" at the same time, it's an "I *really* like" ?
I especially liked how it took a chocolate bar for Katie Price/Jordan to have something intelligent-sounding to "say". Only to revert back to form moments after.
Nothing quite like celebrating your vacuousness out in the open, eh !
I've loved the whole series, Brotherhood was a brilliant game. But, this mini-tower-defense thing is utterly crap and takes you right out of the game you're playing. It's bolted on, it jars, the execution is appalling, boring and just plain irritates.
Ubisoft could do with a patch to disable that crap for those that would rather just get on with playing the game they thought they were buying.
Oh, and Ubisoft - your code to allow me to play online is SHIT. I pay my xbox live subscription to enable online play, so stop trying to screw anyone who dares buy the game second-hand. You grasping little wankers. This is how it works in the real world, and just because you feel you deserve a cut because I've finished your game and someone else wants to buy it doesn't entitle you to another slice.
You don't see me paying Ford a chunk when I buy my car secondhand, do you ?
Acer R3700. It's practically a hand-held and does full-res 1080p HD. XBMC loaded on and full steam ahead.
Personally, I liked this one..
As seen on twitter, via @TwopTwips...
SIRI: When unable to understand the Scottish accent, have an educated guess by recommending the nearest pub.
I liked it...
File transfer? Over bluetooth! Hey, about time - that would come in handy! I quite often take a photo on my iphone I want to bluetooth to a friend, so that would be useful.
Ah wait, I remember.. in the dim and distant past (before I went iphone), I was able to do this with my Nokia's and Sony Ericsson's..
Apple - striving to ensure you eventually forget about the freedom you once had.
They should deploy CAT-5....
Any chance of this review FORCING the Desmond empire (Star, Express etc) to have to join and comply with the new-and-improved PCC once again?
If it's that bad, I think it becomes MS to provide a bootable ISO/USB that will fix it in a one-er, without the need to reinstall everything.
Ker-ching for those fixing PCs as homers in the meantime!
They could also do her for racketeering (sorry!).... or, driving with a load not securely tied down ?
"Rather than fingering his back-seat squeeze"...
And there was me thinking it was The Law that had the long arm.....
oh come on..
Surely it's as simple as "two of every animal on one boat"? Completely impossibly to collate in a thousand lifetimes, and thousand other reasons why it would never work.
Piss off, in short.
He's due a leathering for that one...
"Simply activate the 'Erase Data' feature to wipe all data on the iPhone after 10 failed passcode attempts, stopping brute-force attacks"
The brute-forcing would be done offline against the specific files - you'd only be putting the derived key into the device. Hence this would be no defence.
"We are (un)happy to announce.."
Sounds like you have a nice little product in your sales portfolio now. And loads of free publicity for the fact? Why would you be (un)happy about that?
The rate that Adobe has to push its fixes out, I'd really rather not wait until once a month anyway...
I played all the previous Lego games (bar Harry Potter) with my 12yo daughter. We've been playing them since the first Lego Star Wars came out on the 360 (about 3 years ago). They've always been intuitive and very well put together, a good family game.
We sat down to this, really looking forward to it. Both of us actually find it quite confusing at times, and we're very well-versed in the lego games having completed everything in SW, Indiana Jones etc.
She's given up on it totally after the first couple of levels (those major battle scenes are just a confusing mess) claiming she has no idea what's going on, where she is, what she's supposed to be doing or what's happening. And as a seasoned gamer (but one who sadly paid for it), I'm not that far behind her.
A shame. Something just isn't right here, it doesn't play as well as the others do. So, back to finishing off Lego Batman it is then !
6/10 from me.
This is exactly the sort of hands-on approach needed to finally settle that age-old question; just which nation is full of wankers ? Is there an iPhone version coming (as I would expect that the number of wankers would soar if so...) ?
Like the idea of the "encouraging" sounds.. but surely a picture would be more appropriate? You could have two, even - one of Halle Berry playing tennis perhaps for those racing towards the quick shufty, and another of Anne Widdecombe's ankle for those looking to extend their stamina... ?
Good to see it's free though, I wouldn't pay for such an app what with being so tight-fisted...
Not sure I want my bottom loaded, but each to their own
"the beauty of taking your allowance money and making a decision based on the jacket, not knowing what the record sounded like, and looking at a couple of still pictures and imagining it."
and then going "ah shit - the only track I like on that album was the one I've been hearing on the radio - what a total waste of money that was !!!"
Might have worked when you were loaded, but if "allowance" money required saving for one album a month, then you really were up shit creek with that "model"...
I'm just glad to see they're asking for help now, rather than waiting till it's too late.
Good on them for that. It's no reflection on the staff on the ground of course, nor on Japan's tech capability. Sometimes events spiral a bit and it's helpful to have an outsider look at the situation. While some countries would be more inclined to pull an iron curtain round and secretly hide their tech, this is the proper way to go about it. Other countries, take note !
dear oh dear...
How completely depressing... :-(
