EU annoys industry and activists with net neutrality proposal

Sigh...

Citizens of the EU vote for the EP right? So why the f*ck there must be a *Council* that can trash everything that come from a democratic elected body? National politicians deal very badly with real democracy...

Lobbying

F*ck and double f*ck these morons!! This is what happens when all the stupid ministers of the EU got a meeting together, they take with them the proposals drafted for them by all the interested parties minus the common citizen! Do we need a war to be rid of these scumbags?

WTF?

Glasses needed

Because you clearly didnt read the article. The burden here its not the EP, but "Now Euro nations' government ministers, who sit on the Council of the European Union, are tearing the text apart, and rewriting large chunks of it." instead. Got it?

"Phones can be flashed by Kaymera and then sent out, or flashed by the company on-premises at secure facilities – which is what they do with government customers – or the build can be downloaded and installed by a corporate IT department."

Re: brilliant solutions for gangstas, bankstas, terrorists and others in search of ultimate privacy

Funny, the gangstas, bankstas, terroristas(yep, you did spelled it wrong), and others, from your words, can't have the joy of the ultimate privacy, nevertheless they are plenty around and still doing business...so, how it would be different? And you forget to include the MEPAS and politiciansas...

Dutch MEP slams 'cowboy practices' of GCHQ 'n' pals following Gemalto allegations

JahBless
Bronze badge
Thumb Up

Omg...

"Sophie in't Veld was more outspoken: “Year after year we have heard about cowboy practices of secret services, but governments did nothing and kept quiet! In fact, those very same governments push for ever more surveillance capabilities, while it remains unclear how effective these practices are."

The Duch MEP nailed it! Red faces, ears burning etc,etc :)

"In't Veld believes the time has come for answers. “How will the Commission investigate these allegations which, when confirmed, would constitute a serious breach of European data protection legislation? How will the Commission act against illegal hacking activities by EU member states on the territory of other member states?”

The day the City lose power (and it will), I bet british politicians will be very "pro-european"...and as usual, the Comedians, sorry, Commissioners at the Commission will do nothing for now.

""If the average IT whizzkid breaks into a company system, he'll end up behind bars," said In't Veld, adding that "hacking a SIM card manufacturer in another EU country" could hardly be within the law"

Everybody knows that the whizzkids are ugly trolls and eat to much pizza, they deserve to go to jail.

"I mean, it's one thing to criticize the US and UK governments for hacking into stuff, but to then say they didn't know about IS seems a bit weird. "

You never heard about irony? Like the MEP said, govs and secret services demanding more surveillance because of the "terrorists" and only cared about IS when they needed? I have no sympathy much less respect for these people demanding more powers.

@ Trevor_Pott

Dear Trevor, I feel your pain, and what's worse, I did comment the article with a colleague here at the office who simply *LOVES* to have an opinion in any subject, and as you can imagine, he has the *inquestionable answer/argument/etc* . I did find that he has no clue about how data flows over a cable and the bonus was, yes, the gold platted hdmi cables are the best thing on Earth...I was not sure if I should laugh or cry, the level of stupidity is overwhelming.

Web daddy Tim Berners-Lee calls for net neutrality in Europe

JahBless
Bronze badge
FAIL

Dial-up again?

People are used now to ADSL, Fiber and Cable speeds and going against net neutrality will end that, period. Detractors can say all they want but they forget (or conveniently forget) the MSN, AOL, CompuServe et al of the past. If was not for the growth and demand for new stuff of people online, we would still live with similar services. If I start to see my internet access crippled, I don't doubt I would spend less and less time online. The same for millions of people as well I'm sure, or at least the ones without money for a 1st class internet. Less customers, less consumers, less advertisers... It just scares me if Microsoft were successful with their MSN...

Microsoft just saved Windows Phone... Now stop whining

Nokia talles tell us that...

Microsoft is having a "Nokia"..."And without strong leadership and clarity, it's hard to motivate the Mobile Devices division to be world beaters. Risk aversion becomes the default mode of operation. Fulfil the deadline - try not to rock the boat with radical or risky new ideas. Note how bugs are creeping in, and the fit and finish no longer has the distinctive and assurance it had at launch."

Sorry Andrew, told you so.

"Smith notes that the prior ruling has also been protested by the EU, whose Commissioner for Justice says “it bypasses existing formal procedures that are agreed between the EU and the US” and that it “may be in breach of international law” ".

Re: *MY* network? Not really.

My recommendations go well over the entire aspects of the business because, well, that's my job. But if I'm asked about the idea of certain people (finantial, HR...) becoming local admins in their windows boxes, for example (just because they need that important software callled iTunes be available), should I simply say yes and aceept the "compromise"? I have responsability over the security and stability of the network and everything related with it. The everything "writen" it's because boards and bosses love to have a scapegoat whenever is needed.

Re: *MY* network? Not really.

"I hope you continue to work well in your job, and that your honesty doesn't cause you to fail in any future job interviews. I'd certainly mark you down if you gave that sort of answer to me."

I would never give that kind of answer but I'm really assured that *every* recommendation I give is writen and all the people in the board are awere of it. If they decided they know better how to manage the IT department, in the end I have something to recall them of it and say "Told you so..." .

"It may well be *my* network, but I am really just custodian of it for the people who matter. The security changes I'm implementing are done with the consent of my users, after informing/consulting as appropriate."

Consent?? You dont deal directly with the beancounters do you? They are "IT masters!"...

Informing? Yes, that's correct.

I have little hope that small players/startups could have access to that nice millions...but Europe can have good alternatives to the american offers. And with lower operation costs, like installing the datacenters in Scandinavia or in the Baltic. The Baltic countries are a good place since they can buy cheap electricity from Ukraine and help the later strengh their economy.
