PANDA chomps through Spotify's DRM

Re: Use spotify myself

@Lionel Baden.

"If I didnt know better i wouldn't of guessed they used DRM."

If I didnt know better i wouldn't HAVE guessed they used DRM.

My god.... Getting sick of this "of" instead of "have".

At NO point in the English Language (this also applies to you, rest of the world) does "of" ever follow "would" or "wouldn't".

Bad enough having to be "axed" a question.

Texan parks quadcopter atop Dallas Cowboys stadium

Re: me

Yes, they DO stop instantly. At least modern electric ones do. If you owned / flew one you would know this. "Dinky toy quads" do not count.I have stopped mine (blade 350qx) with my fingers and whilst i agree, it hurts, thats all it does. You may get a mark but thats all. I'm not saying if it slams into your eye it wont blind you or injure you in some way but they simply dont have the power/torque to chop bodily parts off. Even long grass will stop the blades.

The blades are "blunt" and are generally less than 6" long.

On a petrol RC plane/copter then yes, the damage potential is much higher.

Re: rubbish.

Its easy to spend £10k upwards on these things.

The point i was making was that for a few hundred (comparatively) quid you can get up in the air, filming in HD with almost professional results.

The extra £$£$ seems to equate to lifting power!

They have intelligent motor controllers which stop ALL the motors the instant one of them hits something. You may get a minor cut but lopping fingers off??? No...

Re: Heimdal software

"looks like the standard dodgy scamware with mocked up images"

Too bloody right it does. Captured as a screen shot, its blatently obvious that they are scanned images. The images have missing pixels galore, its the crappiest, easiest, cheapest attempt to flog crud-ware i've seen.

The imei plays no part in it. Jammers, well, jam. They dont differentiate between imei of one device or another, they just flood the local area with RF.

http://www.globalgadgetuk.com/rx90.html

For example, has selectable bands to block 2g but not 3g, or wifi but not bluetooth etc.

So you could blanket jam everything within a 20 metre radius. Of course, the legailty is a different issue altogether but thats about the most advanced jammer out there that Joe Bloogs can own short of military based stuff.

Expensive kit

For a direct copy of gopro Heroes, check out the SJ4000.

Its a third of the price and has the same resolution, is compatible with the gopro accesories and in a head to head test, its bloody hard to tell the difference. Admittedly, the gopro has wireless and built in memory but i doubt those features make up for the difference in price....

Here we go again. Shoddy security and poorly trained staff coupled with plaintext details stored on an (apparently) easy to access back end.....

Companies like this should have the arse fined off them to demonstrate that its not acceptable in this day and age...

At least in my case they have no genuine details but that is only by good sense on my part.

Still, no emails asking me to change my false details for more false ones and no word on the level of encryption used. These days, your personal details are worth more than financial ones...
