Re: Hackery

If the Palestinians were serious about freedom rather than killing anyone they don't like and especially Jews

For now, its brownshirtish Israelis doing the killing, so spare me.

Europeans have supported the Palestinians financially far more than the rich Arab states and what to they get out of it?

The US supports Israel with >3 billion per year and what do they get out of it? A few wars, kickbacks and otherwise the finger and accusation of un-americanism. Chutzpah, we hardly knew you!

I think I am not mistaken in the belief that they are one the most lovingly honed and exceedingly titivated simple machines, too.

Never forget that "tax non-transparency" helped to get Jews out of Europe last time

Frankly, this shit is ridiculous.

Sounds more like journalists wanting to get into the news because "beellions NOT TAXED" (which is bad how?), while central banks pump out tens of billions per month to well-connected persons and revolving door outfits.

Why Comrade Cameron went all Russell Brand on the UK’s mobile networks

Oh give me a home where the VultureNets roam...

It advertises low prices and has a capex budget for its first 10 years of precisely £0.00. All calls are therefore roaming calls, parasitic on the established four networks’ infrastructure.

This ain't no "roaming call". VultureNet is a "virtual operator" and I would guess they will have to pay the infrastructure provider buckos to carry traffic. "Roaming" is when you log in to another network to make the call, and I can tell you that fat files are changing hands servers daily for "reconciliation". "Parasitic" my lice-infested arse.

Also, these operator arguments sound very much like some of the stuff I was ordered to make up when employed a national incumbent operator (not UK) more than a decade ago. They nearly make sense.

"How will you make the ITU more relevant to the digital age?"

Very open-ended. So what has changed in the digital age that makes the ITU less or as much relevant as before? The hands-on work of small teams on digital communications? RFCs? Why make the ITU *more* relevant?

"Is the ITU content with its current status"?

Because El Reg forums becomes more and more of an old pirate bar, with Orlowski ranting time and again from the upper stairway like a village priest to general rolling of eyes, and everyone hoping that they will still manage to actually see the world burn before the last bourbon is absorbed, while young ones stumble through the front door, full of wide-eyed naiveté and start to post things that apparently are full of earnest hope.

Re: Something is broken... the method

It's about as hard. Adding random bytes to your malware should do the trick. But you do need at least a man-in-the-middle attack situation to pull of the subsitution. OTOH, if you are forging material that has been digitally signed and is sitting on the notary's disk, you may well have all the time in the world.

Rich techbro CEOs told to SLEEP ROUGH before slamming the poor

Facepalm

New depths of stupid plumbed by clueless pol: Film at 11

"We need to get CEOs to do two things: live on food stamps for a week, or spend a night in a homeless shelter"

This is going to help how? Looks like she doesn't understand what a CEO actually is. If the shareholders want to spend the dividends, why not? The CEO has no authority to drop cash onto the streets and I would like to see him removed if that ever occurred.

Also, "Income Inequality" is a consequence, not a cause and not a problem. It is a consequence of protectionist measures, rent-seeking and the state making hiring people an ugly proposition. Did I mention calling CEOs criminals for having the temerity to do their job? Not to mention "industrial policies" of all sort.

With that kind of populist shit on the air, it's like we are really at a Marxist rally.

Re: Not a fan...

That makes it hard for anyone, not just Spotify, to maintain an ethical business.

No, that assumes that the people who will pay for Miss Swifts albumas on amazon or wherever are the same as those that faff around with YouTube videos. Even after 10 years of repetition, it sounds weird to me, aking to talking up radio as the merciless killer of pop starlets.

Historically inaccurate.

Amazingly, the ships conveniently lined up in Pearl Harbor, were dreadnoughts that were from WWI except the Arizona. The crown jewels, the aircraft carriers, were otherwise occupied (either in the Atlantic or on resupply missions). Dodged a bullet there. Or, considering the clownish antics in trying to NOT tell Kimmel that he had a target painted on his back, maybe not.

Of course, the comparison fails otherwise anyway.
