Re: Probably thought
What, a black memba!
M$ stupidly left the ability to brick a console in an easily accessable "Un"hidden menu.
M$ stupidly refused to make it play old gen 360games. Way to alienate customers! After all, the 360 and the One are PC's at their heart. Worse is that it isnt that much more powerful than the 360 and is par to a mid range gaming PC.
Stupid stupid stupid. On both counts.
And i'm an M$ lover!!!!
That has the potential to fail after 7 months is not to considered for any part of my system. That's an appalling lifespan....
sounds like desperation to me.
Re: Come on Nokia
Or cyanogens Maxim DL pro.
Not in my mind they haven't mate..
Because my father in law would be disappointed. That's why. Not that its any of your business.
"I'm sorry Mr NSA bloke but these files were encrypted with crytolocker, i haven't deleted them in case the decrytion key is eventually located when cryptolocker is brought down and i can recover all my pics of puppies*. If YOU, Mr NSA, cant decrypt em then please feel free to attempt to prove otherwise".**
Im going (really against my wishes) to the states next year, before i go i am going to restore my laptop to a known clean state, then run truecrypt through it. Then make some folder with corrupt images but a good name, like, ohh, "barely legal numbers 30-40"!. Should cause a laugh and will hopefully cause them to have me refused entry and flown back to blighty.
* puppies with little perky pink noses
** USA, no proof/evidence makes a shit of difference. They do what the fuck they like anyway.
Re: you're kidding me
Toyota car parts, when fitted to toyotas, cause millions of toyotas to be recalled!!
Nissan parts, when fitted to nissans, cause millions of em to be recalled.
Old HP writers when fitted to old VIA motherboards caused the writers to fail but they were all standard.
The point is things break and the possible combination of parts used in PC design/manufacturer is staggering. Its a wonder these issues arent a lot more common. Software and hardware.
Get some perspective. They issued a workaround, they are working on it.
Go bitch about something else. The vast majority on here dont use/care about CRM.
In a weeks time this will be resolved and forgotten, so wipe the foam from your mouths.
Non event. Clever but easily circumvented by unplugging or disabling the microphone, muting the sound or turning it off.....
Re: Another bullshit patent
Indeed. Eloquently put.
The outcome of cases these days depend on the acting skills of the prosecuter and the defence. Proper reasoned arguments play very little part in it.
Re: ..."a whopping 80 per cent of crashes ... involved male drivers"
To counter that, a whopping 80 per cent of crashes which involved male drivers were CAUSED by women doing dumb arse things like, ohh, putting fucking make-up on in the car. Or texting. Or numerous other things i see as a car, white van man AND cyclist commited daily by women drivers ...
NB, not saying men are the epitome of safety but when was the last time you saw a bloke putting lippy on whilst hurtling down a dual carrigeway for a mile and a half..
Look on the anti-negative side
Least it wasn't the clouds that ruined this one....
God damn sun...Could have done the decent thing and turned itself off for a day...

Re: Doesn't seem to be much different
Until the government decide otherwise.
Either wholly or on a case by case basis.
Re: Spiders normally only bite once
"The Tarantula for instance usually just waves its front legs to scare off potential predators, and will bite as a last resort".
And flick urticaring hairs at you. My mate breeds em. You really dont want a face full of them, its like using fibreglass as a sponge.
4G offers nothing that
3G wont for the majority.
As i tried to explain to the call centre droid last week.
"Hi, I'm calling from EE to tell you about YOUR chance to upgrade to 4G for only £29.99"
Me: "Thanks but i'm not interested in 4G."
Droid: "Ok, i understand that you're not interested, what is it exactley you aren't interested in?"
Me: "bye". Click...
And my 4G experience ended there. Doubling my price to play some tosser at some shite game.
Re: Rainbow tables
You are so wrong. Go on, fire up trucrypt. Run the elcom soft decryption tool. It doesn't need to brute force anything. Whilst the laptop is on then the decryption key IS HELD IN RAM. If in suspend, the key is STILL there only now its in the hibernation file.
And this is what the tools attack.
Do some fucking reading before spouting shit.
Re: Rainbow tables
So up until ohh, last week, it HASNT been audited and is therefore (until confirmed otherwise) as unsafe as any other system.
Which is what i said.
Re: What did you expect?
Damn shame you are anon. I would like to shake your hand and buy you a pint.
Knutsford guardian (bastion of truth!) run an article proclaiming they were in knutsford. As a pestie, i was only too happy to pour scorn and ridicule (thats the IT side of me) on their utter stupidity...Then pointed out it was zygiella x-notata.
Almost as bad as the daily fail....
Re: Rainbow tables
Er, sorry to burst your bubble but elcom soft and others have tools to easily break bitlocker and truecrypt.
If your laptop is seized whilst powered on then you are screwed!!!! And i wouldn't trust M$ to NOT have back door access into bitlocker. Despite their assurances.
Truecrypt is closed source and cant be independantly audited to ensure it is as secure as they porport it to be.
See Puddle jumper or "one whom is good with colours".
Letter from the US of A.
Ya'll go fuck yourselves now. D'ya hear?
Good look with this little endeavour.
USA stop snooping? HAHAHAHAH...
Re: Doesn't look good
Or that the Phony Phanbois are downvoting. Wouldn't be suprised if M$ doesn't have a team doing the same to the PS4 reviews.
Re: No surprise
My technology doesn't have a major strop every 28 days. It costs a minimal amount to run. Doesn't care if i am unshaven, doesn't moan about the loo seat and , in its own electronic way understands that vehicles require fuel, tax, insurance, maintainance and dont run on fucking pixie dust. All in all i'd rather have my tech gear than be saddled with some croning old witch. Which i am.
Even my phone vibrates when i insert something into it.
fee of about, ohh, a tenner, will get you a self powered 3 into 1 Auto/manual switching HDMI part. Like a scart doubler from way back.
@ Dave Bell: Beg to differ
a decade ago, if you plugged in an NSTC device into a PAL telly, you ended up with a mono picture or a rolling picture like the vertical hold was off sync. In fact, VCR had to proudly display NTSC playback else a lot of VHS tapes would fail as they were recorded in NTSC.
Re: Fingers crossed
This is England, clouds, whenever there is a significant solar event, are a sodding certainty.
Re: Which resins exactly?
My utter disdain for
Skype has nowt to do with MS. I detested it long before M$ became involved.....
Re: Honest opinion?
it would seem. in this case at least, that honest opinion AND fact are intrinsically linked...
Not only is it my opinion he is a swarmy tory twat whom has no idea what happens beyond his front fucking door, it's also a fact....
May i just say that the amber update for nokia windows 8 phones went without a hitch....
Could this be because MS are on an uphill struggle and cant afford mistakes like this where as android and samsung, really dont give a rats arse. They will happily expect you to wait potentially months for the fix. Betcha there is no recompense for affected customers though...
Hopefully the fall out from this will teach them not to disregard their customers... Doubt it though now i have removed my rose tinted spectacles.
Re: Single player campaign
Ok, to answer. Weapons, more and better. Ability to set up some devious traps and ambushes.
AI, way better...
Re-playability. COD can be finished in a matter of hours, you try finishing farcry3 in a few hours. Once you complete the story quest you have 30 odd enemy encampments to attack. THAT keeps you coming back for more...
Graphics, better (OK FC3 does have a few anooying glitches but nothing too bad).
In almost every way except the marketing blurb, FC3 just whoops COD..
Also, as its now a year old its available for less than COD...
try it, you wont be dissapointed.
Missed the point.
Surely there is some market for an oestrogen monster and its pantie flinging weapon that will be unleashed on that day to be thwarted and utterly utterly destroyed by the doctor...
Single player campaign
is at best, Meh!
Cant comment on the MP side of things.
Battlefield 4 is simply a better single player mission and as i have said before Farcry 3 blows them all out of the water....
Fortunately, with a few minor exceptions there are numerous other FPSs on the 360 to keep at least me amused for a few more years...
do you dig this crap up from....
Re: @ Spoonsinger
Sorry, I was talking to the elucidated....
That's what the fuck I was on about...
Re: Great f**king idea
Option 1: No need to rip em out. they are readily available on the internet for 50 quid upwards.
Also, they could be incorparated into the ECU as they only need to have milliwatts of RF output. Makes removing them very very difficult indeed.
Option 2: Again, how do you propose that? Phones are getting more and more locked down. See how many jail break hacks there are for, ohh, lets say *windows phone. None.
* spare the tired jokes about only 4 people owning one.
Option 3. Refer to option 1.
The technology to do this is there and easy to implement. FM transmitters were banned up until a few years ago, now they are acceptable for "beaming" music to car stereos with no input/bluetooth.
At some point, in the not too distant future
someone will realise that blocking freetards access simply makes the freetard more determined to find pirateble material.
If for no other reason than as a sign of defiance. Cat v mouse, whack-a-mole, call it what you want.
Ultimately the freetards (which includes myself) will circumvent the blocks, carry on downloading films, music, games, software etc not because of monetary gain but because they dont like being told what they can download. I download stuff for my convienience and my personal pleasure. Not to flog or consequently upload to the world and its dog. After all, someone else has already done that...
And every thing i download for free is one hit in the bollocks for numpties that endorse this blocking. Make no mistake, this is function creep at its worst.
NB, can i just make clear that i DO purchase software but i will always download a dodgy copy first to ensure it works as i want it to, not how the seller says it works. As for music, they can bollocks. I'd rather stick a 10'er in the hand of the artisit. Not the flange badger who manages them...
Which is exactley the reason i dont play online.
14 year old cretins that shouldn't even be playing that know where *every* spawn spot is and every camping site.
Thank the lord for Team Xecuter...
Re: Firing guns in space
Gunpowder, as correctly stated by phil, has its own oxygen supply.
Gunpowder, like most explosives uses a nitrate, saltpetre was the old one, there is probably some new more efficient oxydizer used in modern munitions.
Re: I wouldn't put it past North Korea
NO!! we should happily sneak X-Factor et al vids in at every opportunity, with any luck the norks will bump off Cowel, Ozbourne, Walsh and all the other vacuous twats that have ruined most of the music industry and more importantly, saturday evening TV.
+1 for the milts.
Most of the pretentious bastards on here would happily chomp on caviar whilst being blissfully unaware of the deliciousness of milts on toast.
With hendersons relish....
Ahh. Translations needed
"For obvious reasons Parliament does not comment on the measures we take to ensure the security of our network." ®
equates to: I'm sorry, that's all that's written on my sheet. I really don't have a clue...
Secret, you say...
claiming to have taken down the site of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) and the more secretive Australian Secret Intelligence Service.
Hehehe. Ain't that secret if its on the web....
single player mission. Way to short.
Not bad but unlike HL2 and Farcry3 (That's a *good* game) it wont keep me coming back for more.
