Nobody blaming Apple? They are the ones that have final approval. It was their scr?w up.
I don't think MS would take down a video because of criticism but if it was because of a serial number, they could of easily just banned the number - unless it takes more work. Even the too many have seen the videos.
Funny how the author failed to mention that the update fixes 150+ vulnerabilities and has 120 other fixes. Both I think are browser records.
Re: Defender is not AV
But Defender is a piece of crap. It has some of the lowest rankings of AV software out there.
Nothing but rumors.
Wold it be odd for Apple to have 2 major product releases in about a month or so and nothing again for 11 months?
Support at apple and the child labor in China must be booming to support and crank out these gadget.
Would make more sense to release the iPhone in the spring and iPad in the fall as the iPad is something people want to give for the holidays...
Wrecking more than fixing.
Compared to the rest of the Middle East, Israel is a technology leader by far. Just about every major company has some type of R&D facility in Israel.
Isn't this dimwit coming out with a book of 352 selfies this fall? [Soon to be in the $1 book bins a week later] Make these are "out takes".
Re: A joke, or some form of Israeli PR right?
I agree. Can you be occupied if you don't have the army [or police] in your land? The Gaza has its own [corrupt] version of a government. Everything from police [if you can call them that] to health to education. doesn't sound like occupied to me.
While at it, you can't blame just Israel for their problems. Egypt has also blocked Hamas/Palestinians from leaving Gaza on their border as well as goods going in and out.
He wasn't really a nemesis by the end of Moonraker - unfortunately a real goofy ending of a film.
It must be fun being an Apple lawyer. Job for life [until apple breaks apart].
I think most AV software will cease to provide updates by around next July. I am assuming paid subscriptions won't let you go past that date [or barely].
Re: equips tinfoil hat
MSE is crap. It missed a few malware critters on one computer I saw and couldn't even detect a root kit on another. How I knew? Installed AVG Free. Trend Micro rootkit utility confirmed the rootkit.
Re: equips tinfoil hat
Just wondering if you are a conspiracy nut?
Seriously? Microsoft paying Symantec to screw up the OS?
Wouldn't trust a site that resorts to pop-up windows for them to advertise [after you click on an "agree" or other button].
Except for the fact that some of them are just plain dumb, why would any celebrity have nude pictures of themselves stored in the cloud? Want to back up critical/personal information, use a USB key and shove it in a safe at a bank.
Re: Maximum Penalties...
Need to put the fear in these thieves. How about 1 year in prison per $100,000 stolen....
How many home users do you know back up their data?
How many home users do you know get a nice Email with an attachment from someone they don't know and open the attachment?
Re: Symantec was always useless ...
So you haven't used it in about 15 years right? That's like saying Google+ sucks - without using it.
Re: I am shocked!. Absolutely Shocked!
Errrr. Maybe because Israel doesn't have spy satellites....
The fact that the Jordanians are supplying info to Israel [indirectly at least] shows how popular Hamas is at this time. The Arab monarchies such as Jordan and Saudi Arabia are nervous about these extremist groups as they tend not to like monarchs or secular governments.
Support for win XP dropped. Yes it goes against MS support policies but with around 25% of the computers out there using it...
Hmmmm. Maybe China is allowing any company that has weak network security. Obviously security companies like Symantec and Kaspersky is a problem for them.
Interesting how I don't think the report mentioned the big three [and I don't suggest the best]: Kaspersky, Symantec/Norton, and McAfee.
Just remember, there is no verification of the report.
Re: Playing with numbers
Where do you get these figures from? Al Jazeera?
Re: One OS
"For an OS company..." Yup. SQL Service, Office, Office 365, SharePoint, ....
Re: The Plan
Errr. And why? Results weren't incredible but they weren't bad. But from someone who is anti-Microsoft like you....
Apple QC at its worse.
Not a good year for Linux/Unix. This, OpenSSL and then a further bug in OpenSSL.
More sloppy programming from Google. Makes Apple look like the second best programmers in the world. :-)
Not really, unless you have a power failure.
Why on earth did Google spend money on the Android OS and then WASTE money on the Chrome OS. Android used by hundred of millions. Chrome OS - 5 people. Many, many, may applications for the Android. What is there for Chrome OS.
If I was given one of these Chrome paperweights, I'd format it and install Linux or even Windows 7.
Should of bought a tablet - any tablet - instead of the Chrome paperweight.
In reverse, how do you know they DON'T sell our data? Show a link. Blocking "adverts" means nothing. They are still using your data - you are just not seeing it.
Hmmm. And I was sure one was Meyers....
These totals depend on where they companies dies their "research" and how they did it.
Worldwide, Samsung has double the amount of smartphones out there compared to apple [ http://www.idc.com/prodserv/smartphone-market-share.jsp ] but Apple sells more in the US [ http://www.comscore.com/Insights/Press-Releases/2014/6/comScore-Reports-April-2014-US-Smartphone-Subscriber-Market-Share ] . If you do the math you will find that while the iPhone 5S sells more than any individual phone it is primarily because Samsung has too many models. Was actually surprised to see the iPhone 5C market share quite high considering it didn't get a good reception.
End of the world
Dell, HP, IBM/Lenovo, and others are rubbing there hands thinking about all the servers they will sell. Problem is than many larger places have Server 2003 in a VM. Where I work, I wouldn't be surprised if 75% of the servers are in VMs. Only thing maybe needed is a new host server or 2 to divide the extra horsepower needed.
Unlike the old days [by coincidence when Jobs was alive], there was so much hype about a new Apple gadget. Every day [it seems] someone would released what they thought was accurate information [a good chunk was actually false]. Those days are gone. Now it's more like "A 5.5" screen. OK. What's for lunch?"
Re: To sum it up
No news for Apple. They've been hit with snags the last few models.
Windows 8.1 "Update" [as named by Microsoft and not "Update 1" has been out for 3 months. Now you're showing off?
That said, in a month will be "Update 2" but only minor enhancements.
A possible "Update 3" may come out sometime early next year. Either that release or Windows 9 will feature a full Start menu - very similar to Window 7, but the right side of the menu ["Documents", "Pictures", etc.] will use Windows tiles.
5 out of how many?
So they spied on 5 Muslim-Americans. That is a tiny percentage of the 7500+ who were spied on. Who are the rest? Priests? Garbage collectors? WWE officials?
Re: EMET needs to be downloaded and activated for each application?
Nope. Separate from the OS.
By default it will "protect" various Microsoft applications, plus Adobe Acrobat/Reader, Java, and I think a few others. These are included because they are common to attacks.
If you want to apply it to heavy vulnerable applications like Google Chrome, you have to add it.
Bunch of dummies. You're leaving the company. they can't enforce it. They're trying to do a quickie there.
I worked for a major multi-national [now broken into pieces] that normally gave a month severance for every full year of service. Unfortunately in my jurisdiction, severance isn't guaranteed. In addition a labor law did say that since it was a layoff they could hire anyone in a similar position for up to a year. So, they said sign the waiver to kill the labor law or you get no severance. I didn't give a crap. I signed. Took them 11 months to hire a "replacement".
As long as the clause doesn't stop him from making a living and is not tough, I can't see the guy winning this case. He signed the clause when he started to work at Amazon and most companies have "exit interviews" where they generally discuss the clause.
It makes no difference what kind of agreement the guy has with Google. it is Amazon's clients and data that are the issue.
I think the law in some form should be in place.
Which reminds me. If not passed, will people go around with contracts that state something like:
"On July 2 at 17:31:12 on Fleet Street in London, I Lindsey Lohan, knowingly posed nude for Justin Bieber. He may not post any pictures [or modifications there of] on the Internet, in an email, in a text message, on TV, in a book, in a newspaper, in a magazine or similar media without my knowledge."
Bieber's version: "I promise to do nothing - at any time - because I'm good at it."
Always knew Schmidt was a commie.
Maybe he'll ditch the workforce in the US and move their HQ to Havana. Cheap labour.
.... No one commented that Gmail is always up and running. They have the same problems there.
Now I know why I don't use anything from Google [where possible]. Add to the fact that Google electronically reads your mail so it can place ads in the Gmail pages that uses key words that came from your mail.
And now this.
Remember when Google cheated by creating a Google+ account automatically when you created a Gmail account? Few didn't even know their life was showing up in a Google+ page.
