Murdoch is Ebola.
Just the damned word makes me cringe now.
How exactly how does the firewall know when an internal machine has been hacked ? The hacker might be simply emailing/ftping/telneting/wputting data to an external address just as someone might be doing this as part of their normal job ?
Where exactly does this device/sftware sit, between the router and the firewall or between the firewall and the lan ?
I presume that the internal client machines need some kind of client, what happens when that client is switched off, or do they encrpt all of their inhouse data in advance and the client "simply" unencrpts on the fly ?
The article is very vague as to what is really going on.
I never would have imagined that it was possible to recognize a facial.
>but Snowden said incoming salvos on US servers are often routed through other countries,
If anyone is going to attack the USA they will probably do so from within as the following statement helps to justify.
>The NSA's internal audits were so lax this wasn't picked up, and to this day Snowden says he believes the NSA has no idea exactly how much data he took.
( Does the U stand for "United" or "Useless")
The problem with raising the bar, even by only a few IQ points, is that you lose 98% of your "product".
From the remaining 2% you would then lose the professionals because their market has disapparead, thereby leaving about 0.00001%.
Basically you would be left with Twitter staff and a few of their friends....
I tried Twitter a long time ago in order to understand what it was all about; result, I understood that it had no real purpose so I simply signed of. I just hope that RSS remains with us for some time yet.
My personal favorite is Twunt.
Too late, MS already have a bloody huge advane with W8..
Hang on a mo, why is there no "Fruit Pudding" in any of those lists. Don't any of you Sassenachs know what's good for you....
Then what is the word document if it is not a file ? Even if the word document is opened in memory and although it doesn't exist on disk it stills resides as a "file" in memory. Albeit a very ephemeral file.
Please correct me if I have misunderstood the concept.
And if that cup had been adorned with a little crown of thorns.... or you were little stirring sticks in the form of nails to given a couple of nails....
I use the name on the badge of the
poor bastard barista behind the counter. They usually have unique names for the region which heps avoid confusion at the other end of the bar.
I can't really agree with that last remark.
The Last of Us is one of those rare pearls whereby the graphics are really not the important. The important factor about TLOU was the storyline and the characters, both of which were extremely well thought out, scripted and acted. This is a game that has soul rather than pixels.
Updating the graphics will not change the games appeal, it is/was already an excellent game, so the new graphics wont really give it any new pulling power.
I believe that gun sales have gone up since all of the recent anti-gun campaigning.
In fact 2013 actually set the highest ever record to date, and here we are talking legal gun sales... I can't even begin to imagine the black market figures. (I suppose we could ask that Califonian statesmen though)
The Ethernet Leaves Nigh Ephemeral Tracks
1 : What do MS actually have to offer on a slab that is not already being provide by the others, Apple(IOS) or Google(Android) ?
2 : What demand exists that MS can fullfill.... where is the potential for MS ?
The only valuable product that MS has that the other don't is "MS Office" and since that is now available from the cloud, a la Office 365, they have no leverage.
MS want to compete on all fronts, understandable form a business point of view, and yet they don't seem to want to understand that their offer does not reply to the demand. ( The demand is more fiction that fact as tablets are a marketing success rather than a consumer request).
I believe that MS are still excellent in the workplace but they are simply not capable of / ready for / have not understood the consumer market, Hence poor tablet, phone sales. YMMV
Effectively, that would be extremely ironic.
I can understand that the guy is pissed of but it is a major faux pas to publish what you are going to do/are capable of doing.
All he had to do was keep his mouth shut, publish his exploit "anonymously" and sit back and chuckle in a super villain manner.....instead he's just giving the local plod an excuse to come round and pay him a visit.
" Besides, anybody who I would actually WANT to talk to already has my phone number and/or email a
address, so why add a another method that doesn't honor the wishes of the user?"
The obvious question would then be : So why not completely remove Facebook ?
'Scots, wha hae wi Wallace bled,

I think that the Scots will surpise you.
That's been the standard practice for the last 5 years, where have you neen hiding.
Evolutionary updates will soon require daily updates to .NET (x.x.x.x) which will require 3 successive reboots per day.
The Dual Sim Support will only work with 1 telco which MS has not currently decided upon yet. Or worse will require the installation of TIFKAM in order to work correctly
I gave up caring about them years ago, along with MS, Yahoo, Amazon, Paypal, Google, HP, Logitech, Samsung, HTC and the list goes on........
On the upside, I still read El Reg
"There was a visit from government officials to our offices," a Microsoft spokeswoman told The New York Times. "Given the sensitivity of the issue, I can't say anymore."
Sensitivity, the keyword.
Now, is it the Chinese that are stealing too much from MS, or is it that MS can't manage to steal enough from the Chinese.
Sherlock wants to know.
Have to agree with Steve, the whole desktop UI thing has gone way overboard. The graphics gymnastics that we see now are just a little bit OTT. I always end up dumbing my interfaces down where possible.
I do like the aero style preview though, which for me is a definate plus..
Why the Ruskies : Simple, they want to test the hackability and there is probably no better place to try it out.
Let's see just how poor these buggers are
It looks likw they really could afford to upgrade a bit.
@AC, $1.9M can go a long way to providing the correct information vis-s-vis des clients. They could start be rectifiying the false promise of "Unlimited" anything.
$1.9M - They could add to some extra equipemnt in the worst hit zones.
$1.9M - They could subsize those they don't get what they were offered.
$1.9M - That pays for the next round of aperitifs on board a luxury yacht whilst laughing about how many more punters will be signing up for unlimited 4G whilst knowing that it simply isn't possible.
With the statistics that the Telcos already have, I would presume that they are very well aware of statistical usage. In other words they knew fine well that people would be watching TV on an almost 24h basis..( TV is an example of one streaming channel, replace with whatever).
In order to prepare for this eventually it was much cheaper to write a get-out clause in the contract than it was to actualy build a network that worked as advertised.
I wonder how much better the network would be if they used 5% of the top execs bonuses in order to improve the equipment ?
A more important question might be "why didn't the human beings survive <disaster X>"
If, today, you can manage to determine what <disater X> will be, you might have a chance of being part of the lucky few ( Lucky being a very subjective word)
You will then be in a favourable position for answering your initial question.
The Panamera is much nicer in real life than it is in those photos, with one exception, those damned LIME coloured brake calipers are horrendous on such a car...
Some of tha ASUS tabs appear to be Okish the T100s for example. Not really a tab more of a hybrid but cheap and usefull.
Build quality, according to various forums, might be a little bit dodgy. Apparently the keyboards keys stops reacting although the mouse pad continues.
Although I like the Samsung I would be happy to see more a bit competition that is capable of producing reasonable quality material without displaying an Apple price tag.

>The catch? The hosted option only applies to BES10, the current suite.
So that excludes some of the large corporate structures then......I know that ours is definately not on BES10 and I haven't heard about any upgrade plans in the near future.... I can esilly presume that we are not alone.
Then it must have been the same team that developed W8.
Don't you just love proverbs.
I am in the unfortunate position of having to admit that, Yes, I probably did.
@Alex : I must point out some facts.
1 : It was Google that coined the phrase "Do no evil", not Apple.
2 : Steve Jobs is dead, so jail time wouldn't actually be very usefull unless his cellmate was a necrophiliac.
3 : Fashist is actually spelt : Fascist ( The word Spelt is the preference of the British, Spelled if you are over the other side of the pond)
And they will recover the $10m by asking one of their child labour farms to stop feeding the children 7 days a week, 6 is enough after all....
Or alternatively they could just put a cheaper antenna in the iPhone ( oops..... tried that already and it didn't work, literally)
I presume that you work in a professional capacity, I also presume that you know when making a professional to professional call things can be done far more efficiently than they are for public to professional.
not to difficult to imagine the conversation as follows :
Good morning, this is Sgt Peters from <such and such> constabulary, I have reason to believe that there has been criminal activity in <such and such> neighbourhood and I need to talk immediately to your reponsable for security, please pass me through immediately. Even if they dont pass the SGT through they will at least provide a direct number. Whether it be 10 mins or more is irrelevant, what is important is that they do have methods by which they can establish facts.
@Phil _ You are correct I am not in the UK, if there are only 2 ISPS then it makes checking for unusual activity even easier.
Please elucidate on your apparant incapacity to understand the suggestion.
>Instead of telling us what hey should have done tell us how they should have done it. How exactly were the police to have established more facts?
I am not a policeman so i do not know their standard procedures but I would hazard a guess at the following possibilites for fact finding
* Maybe a quick call to the local ISPs/Telcos to determine if any unusal activity had been recorded recently.. 10 minute call at most.
* Checking their own database for recent calls of the same nature, thereby establishing the possibility of a neighbourhood (local) hacker/hacker group. 10 minutes if you take your time
* Verifying if the neighbourhood uses the FON network or not.. ( Hint this one is quite important). The ISP or Telco could easilly have provided this information. 10 mins again if you take your time
Total 30 mins at most, including the tea-break and google search for local ISP/Telco number
None of the above require any technical capacity other than being able to type or use a phone, which I believe that most of the police are capable of doing. It would at least have provided a basis upon which they could have made the decision to continue or not with a more thourough investigation.
But no, instead some clever bugger decided to type up a nice letter......which probably took 1/2 day + the added cost of paper, envelopes, printers, ink etc... and all to achieve nothing.
No, Khaptain suggested that they should have established a few more facts before doing anything or alternatively they should have done nothing at all.
But there was no criminal activity !!! And they didn't take any measures to establish if there was or not......
Then if the police have absolutely nothing to go on and the case is so insignificant why did they bother doing anything at all. What was the point of the letter then? Was it just to satisfy the community needs....pull the other one.
>Is the police sending round a polite note reminding everyone to secure their WiFi really comparable with you attempting to grass up your neighbour as a sex offender?
Is this what you consider the Police should spend there day doing, sending polite letters reminding people to secuire their Wifi connections. Maybe in Noddy Land that sounds like a great idea but here in the real world I can think of far better ways of spending tax payers money.
No, I am not saying that they should not respond to anything, I am saying they that should have gathered some facts before reacting.
They sent out letters without first establishing if there was indeed a case... Why was no-one intially sent out to determine what ALL the facts were ?
A guy in the pub last night told me about a friend who's neighbour saw what looked like a naked child running around MrXavia's house. I am sure a quick call to the local plod should sort that out.
What do you think Mr Xavia...
Sorry about the tone but the police should react on fact not on speculation.
>But Gruyère has no holes.
It's true that the Swiss love their holes, the proof, their mountains are full of them ( ok they call them tunnels but we know it's just long holes)...
This implies that that the victim is stupid enought to follow the click bait, that the victim has an Android telephone, that the victim is stupid enough to also install an App from an unknown source.
In Switzerland the main banks DO NOT send you emails and people know this and also they do not mention in the article that there is usally another factor of authentication required , the little calculator+card = code or the code grid. ( Or at least with the UBS, BCGE and CA there is).
"Emmental" after the delicious and hole-ridden Swiss cheese.®
Emmental is the rubbery tasteless cheese that non cheese-lovers drone on about.. Gruyere on the hand other has taste...
"The key, he said, lies in shaking up a business that has relied too long on processes that it developed in the earliest days of the PC industry."
Strange to want to change the very same processes that made them into some of the richest people on the planet.... Software requirements haven't really change much, I seem to have been doing much the same thing for the last 20 years, the interfaces change a little but everything else remains about the same.. ( Except for the VMs)
"The diversity of products that Microsoft has – from silicon tape-outs to services that we are continuously updating in Azure or Office 365 – is a lot more than when we first created the Microsoft engineering system," Nadella said. "That was for retail, packaged products."
So if these products are not going to be retailed or packaged how does he expect to distribute them. The retail methods and the packaging might change a little but they still must be retailed and packaged in order that the custormer can actually recieve them.
"We are not in hardware for hardware's sake and our first-party hardware will be aligned with our strategic direction," he said.
Then what was it doing before if it wasn't "Aligned with strategic direction".
Nadella really is nothing more than a stockholders sock puppet. Bill, and even Steve to a certain limit, were capable of creating an enthusiastic future.
Nadella just bumps out Buzzwords behind empty phrases, either he is just crap at public speaking and has no imagination or he is just a terrible boss. In either case he shouldn't be going public with speeches like that.. As an investor I would start seriously considering moving MS Stocks out of my portfolio.
He shares a lot with Tim Cook really , neither strikes the chord of desire.
