One OS to run them all ? Or all to run the one
If OSes can all run each other apps, then whats the point of having multiple OSes ?
Isn't this getting to where Linux all wanted to be ?
Re: Are you sure that they read your fingerprints !!
And when I am in the darkness, I will slow down and do some spell checking.
Are you sure that they read your fingerprints !!
I have always understand that these devices can merely detect identifiable patterns within your fingerprints and then stock/store/cache these patterns. They do not actually read your fingerprint, ie they would be incapble of reproducing your fingerprint..
I do agree though that they stock a pattern which can then be associated with a password. This pattern could then be used to identify purchases if the pattern could be injected into the identification process. Which is probably possible via a means of hooking an chaining similar to what could be done with interrupts as long as you have kernel level access.
If this is not the case please give me a link to a worthy site which proves the contrary i.e. that these devices could actually reconstruct a fingerprint. At which point my tail will move quickly between my legs and I will scamper away into the darknass...
Re: customers should conduct rigorous penetration tests
And your colleagues for this mission will be Morgan Frogman and Tim Cruise. ( I have been assured that they are both nearly as good as the originals)
Re: That caption for the second image
That image is truly worth a 1000 words. ( or passwords)
I can't decide what's worse, the Dell or the HiPoint !
For anyone that doesn't know, Hi-Point make very low cost firearms, they are on the opposite end of the scale from Sig Sauer etc.
Re: PHB united
They are both the same business really, they spend their time extracting sums of money from their punters.
Most of them don't get into their positions because of their IT skills....
What happens when you cut the current, does this thing just drop down to the ground (10cm drop), start to slide and then quickly issue prayer books....because at 600Kph there will be lot of sparks, stained underpants and prayers that the slippery path is obstacle free.
Prayers won't make the damned bit of difference but lot's of people will like to believe at that precise moment that something or someone will save them from their slippery end.

Re: For people who cannot they see the wood for the trees
That all depends on the kind of forests you are cutting down
If it's 5 year old pine trees, I really don't think that it would matte to much.
If it is 200 year old Oak trees than that's not quite the same cup of tea.
If it's the Amazon rainforest in it's original condition then ........<insert castration method here>
"scooter riders wearing german army-style helmets complete with nazi swastika decorations"
Replace "scooter" with "Harley" and that description could easily represent your local Hells Angels/Bandidos outfit....

What will any of this change ?
Will it change our browsing habits?
Will companies stop paying for Google services ?
Or will it be BAU for everyone concerned ?
This all sounds like high profile media/political splurging but what will it ultimately change...
So easy to protect, not
There have been several reports mentioning that this was likely an inside job, or at least they had access to someone on the inside feeding them with appropriate information.
How exactly will your "efforts" prevent this kind of situation. Oh, they won't, your appearance is just another public outrage/whine in order to gain some airtime...
"Digital Commissioner", now that's a very nice title and probably very handsomely paid. Do you actually need to know anything about IT, Security and/or the real world ?

Re: Data perverts ?
Frank.ly, it's the dilemma of using HQ to represent only a single word... It should only be 3 letters but the 4 letter versions rings better. GCH doesn't sound quite as cool as GCHQ..
Re: Data perverts ?
Would that be one of the following
NSA - Not Secure Agency ( Mr Snowden is the president)
CIA - Criminal Instigation Agency. ( Caused more crimes than any other universal entitiy)
UKA - United Kingdom of America ( We don't actually look at the data we steal, we immediately send it to big brother)
JCHQ - Jihad Central Head Quarters (ok it's 4 not 3)
Low IQ Alternative
Why don't we just send the electricity through the interwebs..

Re: Automatic weapons?
"What I find interesting is that where I live in Europe"
I would hazard a guess that you live in Switzerland, Luxembourg or possibly the Czech Republic.
Semi-automatics in Europe are not difficult to possess, fully automatics are generally much more difficult or completely illegal. Here in France "Fully Automatic" is a class A licence ie : A Weapon of War, and therefore forbidden. I believe that this is the case with most European countries as the the classification in France recently changed in order to comply with most of the others countries. I know that there are countries with exceptions but there are not many, hence my guess at CH, LU or CZ.

Re: Depresses me that consideration for UK areas...
And why wasn't the rest of Europe included, there are a ton of data centres here on the continent. Keeping stuff on the continent also makes Data Security people a lot more friendly...
With the United States Patriot Act etc, your data becomes their data which is not welcomed in many European and Swiss like, countries.
Definately agree with the OP, London <> UK......
I am sure that restoring eveyone's data back to 2010 would go down real well, you would very quickly become their favourite administrator..... Just be carefull of anyone that carries a heavy metal bar in their handbag/coat pocket.
Agreed, actually showing the "whole" car would have been a lot more usefull than a dainty little pic of a dashboard....
The opposite situation
And does the rest of the world have the right to sanction the USA whose "agencies" are only to happy to infiltrate, pirate, hack, spy, snoop, steal on the rest of the world....

What about the comments
Since YouTube comments have now becoem the playgound for all form of insult, hatred and general unhappiness it would have been more interesting to delete the damned comments than the videos.
Re: Big problems for humanity... are exploitable vulnerabilities/zeroday trading opportunities?
"The biggest problem facing humanity....is XXXXXX. The sooner the great unwashed start to think for themselves and wise up to the fact that it's all smoke an mirrors and dogma only serves to make good men do evil things, the better or all of us."
XXXXX could be replaced by several things
Religion, Politics, Publicity, Money, Royalty, etc etc take your pick.

Re: Anybody not running through a VPN deserves what they get, bedbugs and all.
"But I guess for you it's also easy to grow, and maybe kill, your food, sewn your clothes, and build your transport vehicles."
I can do VPN and all of the above except for building transport vehicles but that is nothing that can't be resolved by using the same tools as those used in the killing of the food scenario.

Yes, it is and they appear to be galloping towards us at an increasing speed.

A good example of an optimised process and much quicker than simple attrition.
"Staff in general are the "weakest link in the security chain" and disgruntled employees and the mischief they can create are a particular threat, the spooks advise."
I this is the case the why not immediately disband the entire GCHQ as it in itself presents the greatest risk to the country and it's people.
Re: Balancing the accounts.
"If Microsoft give them a free and legitamate copy, then they're not pirates anymore. Problem solved!"
Since they will be installing over a pirated copy, which will probably get flagged during the installation....they will effectively now be using a legitimate copy of windows but will have been flagged as previously being pirates and therefore will get monitored slightly more closely than everyone else.
It's my conspiracy theory for the day....
Balancing the accounts.
At the end of the day it's probably far more valuable to keep track of what the pirates are doing by giving them a free copy of windows than it is to try and combat piracy.
Quick somebody pass me the sick jug, the contents of my stomach have become disturbed....
Whisky in the jar
I sometimes put a double or even a triple dram of GlenMorangie in my glass in the evening. Does it help the taste, not even remotely, it's fine with a single dram.
8 cores will not help the watch tell the time any more than a single core. Shit my desktop machine is only a double core and I have 15 heavy applications open at this moment and all of them run fine...
Just like the article on removing the bloat from Windows 10 it would be far more interesting to see what you can do with less rather than with more.
Don't stop there
If they can remove the bloat from a tablet, please, please, please do the same for PCs.
Small and light is good... honestly, I really do not need tiles, sidebars or widgets that tell me the latest stock prices. Keep it nice and tight, everyone loves nice and tight ( fnnrrrr).
