Hacker takes down CEO wire transfer scammers, sends their Win 10 creds to the cops

Hoist by their own Petards

It boggles the mind that these companies have such poor checks and balances that millions - MILLIONS! - can be sent out without any decent verification. A phone call to a secretary should not be all it involves. It's just plain incompetence.

And the vey CFOs who should be making sure those systems are in place are he ones being hoist by their own petards. There's a certain delightful irony to it - I wouldn't want to be in their shoes after one of these transfers.

Re: Still waiting for no work

" All those promised robots, promised by every decade's futurists, are no more here than the promised flying cars of the 1950s, 60s, 70s,..."

You've not been in a modern factory lately, then...

Damn near everything you own was made by a robot, at least in part.

Berry nice

Believe bananas qualify as berries.

"Squeeze my berry to get a Passcode" didn't make it past the marketing team, I guess.

How to choose the right screen size

FAIL

Bzzzt

Yes, they are. Suspect you're confusing vertical lines with vertical resolution, not at all the same thing. DVD's are mpeg2 encoded at either 720x576 or 720x486 generally. I can also assure you those resolutions were in very common use in broadcast behind the scenes well before DVD came along. Google "D-1 sony" if you don't believe me.

3D TV by Christmas, hints Sky

1080i is 1080p

"1080i? come on Sky, wheres the 1080p"

Err - any content that started as 1080p ie movies @1080p24 can be easily reconstructed from the 1080i signal. Do a little research before spouting off.

Speeding guns

"More to the point, I want to know just how fast that grease gun is going"

From memory, about 17,000Km/hr - a fair bit of inertia then.

The two defensive posts are from different guys, or one clever guy - grammar styles are quite different.
