I know I'm missing the point,
...but couldn't he use wine?
Just to reiterate what Andy 17 said:
If you unbolt the front tyre, you can now take the entire bike.
I wonder what the winner was (as this was only a runner up).
Any word on if/when 2.1 will be released for the HTC Magic?
Might reduce piracy no?
Might be the primary goal of this...
"could have an impact on voting intentions on the day and is therefore a breach of electoral law"
So party political broadcasts and debates should be banned too?
That aside, I agree with Bo! El Reg should start a "Technocracy"!
All decisions could be voted for online by the people; finally, a true democracy!
I like the way the "save" icon in various parts of the Andriod UI is a floppy. I wonder if half the teen population wielding an andriod have ever seen one in real life.
Nokia may be wrong
and mobile camera phones will never be as good as DSLRs, but it's crazy to call camera phones "idiotic". The skill and effort it must have taken to fit a 5 megapixel camera inside something slimmer than my finger is just staggering.
Are you guys on crack?
XOR isn't inherently "secure" or "insecure".
XOR your plaintext with a one time pad and your encryption is stronger than AES, XOR your plaintext with "PASSWORDPASSWORDPASSWORDPAS..." and you're in trouble.
Stop hating on the XOR!
It was either that...
Critical memory flaws?
Damn. And there was I, hoping they'd fixed the bit of code that eats up 250mb of ram.
It's the "O2 Joggler"...
"Customers will get the same 7GB inbox as Google offers free via Gmail, and the same features including POP3 and IMAP access"
POP3 is probably what you're using at the moment. I.e. you'll still be able to download emails onto your computer.
The news article linked to from this article was published on April 1st, 2008.
I though the tabloid cartel owned the rights to words such as "slammed" and "blasted"?
@ GC Birzan
It always amazes me how incredibly stubborn and irritating that guy is!

What will these nefarious skimmers do with all these cloned cards? They can only use them at the bar in the stadium right? And it will all be on CCTV. Doesn't really sound like a serious issue.

just the personal side, didn't try the business side.
I'm always disappointed that these unmanned vehicles don't look much more menacing.
Big deal. What about the thousands of forums that allow you to post <img .../> tags?
You're only going to get a few thousand people installing your app, and they are not all going to do it within a few seconds of each other. Your browser is liable to cache most things this 'malicious' app forces your browser to retrieve. And most websites can handle serving a few thousand pictures over the course of a week perhaps. In fact I'd go so far as to say that's what they were designed to do.

"Using the HTTP Post method of encoding a database query would have meant that a requested page comes with a URL that looks like gibberish, effectively eliminating the problem of URL manipulation"
errrr... did this line come out of a gibberish generator? This means nothing to me. Should it?
Anyone care to explain?
Just for completeness:
Whoever sold Exploit Prevention Labs to AVG must be laughing their heads off as AVG realise they've bought a bag of nails and try in vain to get some kind of value out of it.
How long until...
we have a captcha for every page?
I was hoping for Hungry Hippo.
Here's a solution:
Salt your hashes.
If each user prepended their own unique salt to an executable before hashing, a single maliciously crafted exe couldn't infect more than one person.
