Hackers crippled HALF of world's financial exchanges - report

Adam Christie-Grant

Is it just me...

Or was this ALWAYS going to happen while sections of society consider the banks worse than evil? Why is this surprising? And why on Earth would anyone immediately start saying this is not about financial gain - Seriously people with half the planet feeling aggrieved; Either Western 2007 or the Asian 2000 crisis; what exactly did they expect - A couple of power hippies standing outside the banks Or did someone somewhere actually wonder what all the unemployed annoyed people would do?

CLOUD TO SUCK UP ALL YOUR CASH: Govts around world slash IT spending

Adam Christie-Grant

Cloud ha - How to suck up cash..

Where does this never ending pile of crap being spouted by companies about the cloud saving money? Ignore the off the shelf costs - You need to add in usage - Ahh there we go at least 50% more than just buying the hardware... I know of two companies which have been forced back onto owned hardware after being stung massively by this - Still the idea this saves you money keeps getting spouted by research and cloud companies...

Oh and BYOD - Good luck with that.

No interest in 4g at all - At some point I will buy a phone that will utilise it but I have no plans at ALL to upgrade...

@ Home?

Why would I want to wear glasses @ home just to watch some TV? In a cinema is one thing but I have less than 0% interest for that while relaxing @ home...

I doubt that very much - The Americans are famous for throwing anyone who is not a rich white guy from the US of A in prison and throwing away the key....

ID fraud prevention week fights UK's fastest growing crime

Adam Christie-Grant
Thumb Down

I would just quickly like to translate away from scare mongering..

And remind people most of this "Identity Theft" is credit card fraud plain and simple - Nothing new they don't have your details, NI Number, address, bank details or any of that crap - They are just using your credit card. The very low % of fraud that could possibly be called Identity theft is so miniscule as to not even get on the radar.

This is irresponsible reporting not the reg's fault this is down to the police/government.

BT - Can we remove the word British and replace with City....

So BT are only interested in cities with a high return on money - Well thats just great doesn't privitisation work... I have always been of the opinion that BT droppped not just the ball but a whole bucket full of balls over the past few years - I mean come off it South Korea has 100Mbit/s. I find it awful they are just not interested in a very large percentage of the population who have no desire to live in cities. BT where London matters and the rest of you can fuck off... Great business model guys.

Organisations?

"1400 submissions from individuals and organisations"

Why are organisations getting a view? As far as I knew they literally have nothing to do with the process and do not get a vote? Ah silly me....
