Good old Google
Always looking for more ways to spy on us.
I hope they fall off and get run over by a truck.
Code checking is a real drudge job and no one likes doing it. And if you don't have a concise specification it is nearly impossible.
The steps for writing quality code are
1. Write a spec
2. Write a test plan based on the spec
3. Write the code
4. Conduct a code review
5. Unit test the code.
I wonder how many of those steps were followed in this case?
to scrub the kitchen floor and take out the garbage.
There must be 10 billion usb devices kicking around by now. Its about time they redesigned it making them all obsolete, forcing us to throw them away and buy new ones.
...bought by eBay in 2005....
The bugs were free.
Re. The "invention" is already for sale.
As soon as the patent is granted Apple will sue them into oblivion.
Re: 3 per cent?
The Canadian Government got rid of paper $1 and $2 bills some time ago and replaced them with large coins. Now my pants won't stay up.
Sounds like an interesting course. Where can I sign up?
Re: Sprint have missed a trick here...
To take your idea a step further, the NSA should start its own telecom company with attractive rates. They could then cut out those pesky middlemen and get direct access to their targets.
Will the social media regulator have their own facebook and twitter accounts?
How about a 5 percent pay cut while they're at it?
Re: Yes stop fiddling teens
The real reason they do it is to look like they're busy texting friends.
Re: Just try
How do I change the password on my Fridge? Just askin'.....
What difference does it make? We can be safe to assume the spooks are into everything.
What does Apple pay their lawyers?
I don't hear them whinging about that. And it must be plenty.
Re: Is there a JavaBlock addon, ala FlashBlock?
Now that ala has been used on the internet it will be added to English soon.
3,300kg of cargo...
That's a lot of bottles of vodka.
I sleep much better now that NEOWISE is on the job keeping us safe.
Re: Cue lots of pictures appearing on the internet
A nice lapel pin with an IR LED should take care of Google's camera.
Re: It's ALL drivel on Farcebook
Yes where's the DISLIKE FACEBOOK button?
Re: Why is this even news?
Some Windows users like to have a heads up when patch Tuesday comes around. I appreciate Reg's report. Next time just skip this story.
I am mainly a Firefox user and try to ignore IE updates as much as possible. But MS pushed IE11 as an "important update", so I went ahead and updated it. They could have made it an optional update or waited 6 months or a year.
Maybe those cubesats can spy on the NRO satellite?
Re: Next up...
"I just repaired a Toshiba laptop that had facial recognition unlock on it."
How did you do it? Hold a photo of the owner up to the camera?
Re: return trips
Re. Sputnick capsules
Will they send a dog up first?
Re: Whats the point?
What's to stop the NSA from going to its SECRET court and get a SECRET order to not encrypt private links and force MS to keep it all SECRET?
Zuckerberg, who spies on all his users, discovers he is being spied on. Bummer!
So they've got the toilets working properly now?
They'll have to pry my Windows 7 out of my cold dead hands.
Bill Gates crying.....
Sic 'em boy....
If Obamacare is such an attractive honeypot, why don't they sic the NSA dogs on it and catch a few of those lowlifes? From what we've been hearing you'd think it would be easy for them.
I recently bought a gadget that came with a 50 page manual. The manual was 1 page long, and came in 50 languages. I can see where the manufacturer may have been coming from, but the box and the install program were both in English.
Re: American Big Media running school brainwashing campaign
Taking this a step further, taxpayers are struggling to pay the wages, benefits and pensions of teachers. Corporations would be delighted to step in and provide instruction at no cost to taxpayers. We're already well down that road by now anyway.
...employ memory tricks such as mnemonics...
Whenever I do that I forget what trick I used and embarrass myself. So I keep all my passwords in PasswordSafe.
If you squeeze it hard enough will it call 911 (emergency)?
Re: Who cares about the politics?
Yes but "Fuck You Google" says it all.
What are they gonna do when they get there?
Most people drive cars for years without wrecking the underside one way or another. What are Tesla drivers up to?
Terrorists find hacking power plant too difficult, settle for turning the lights off....
They could save a lot of money (needed for the aircraft carriers), don't buy the ipads, just issue pen and notebook.
It may be to get their datacenters out of US jurisdiction and away from the snoops.
The NSA must know whose computer is infected and sending spam. They could actually do something useful and beneficial for once. Formatting the hard drive on infected machines comes to mind. If anyone complains, send them to Belarus.
Re: CFO says "There won't be one atom of carbon emitted ...."
Re. Ipad, all the carbon produced in manufacturing is released in China.
They need to design nano-bots to help them put it together.
Just because the earth is only a few thousand years old doesn't mean the asteroid couldn't be billions of years old.
I suggest they use the symbol TWIT
How hot is “stinking” hot? Preferably in degrees C (although we'll accept F if that's all you know).
It doesn't matter what the public thinks about fracking. What matters is whether it is harmful to the environment or not. A clear answer to that question and the decision is made.
Wall outlets are standardized over large regions of the world, and every device comes with a charger. Looks like they have a long way to go.....
