Scan in my bank card ?!? *Whuh*.
In the rare occasions I'm in a shop who know what contactless payment is, and have a working reader, then my normal bank card works fine. Why would I want to flash a 600 quid phone ?
Is it too late to get your ass to Manchester to tell Labour what you think ?
gog.com had it on offer recently. it's not very much money even now.
"You'd think an ISP could do better,"
Yes, I would, but NTL are a media company, no wonder they bought the 'Virgin Media' name. Bit of a hint.
Re: the latest and greatest
Almost none of the gaming market needs a discrete GPU. "Hard core" gamers are a tiny tiny fraction.
Where else can I put my shit that's controlled by me then ?
If I have enough money to invest in stealing your golden images, I have enough money to build a cheap GPS blocker. Or will TXT fail to boot my server if there's a bird between it and the GPS satellite ? What, it doesn't do location using GPS ? Open to spoofing then.
" only then to see readers pass on dedicated ebook gadgets "
I rather enjoy not having to charge my Kobo for weeks and weeks at a time.
Vs. my tablet which always seems to be flat.
Guess which one goes on holiday with me !
According to that status page, auto-scaling has bee broken for two weeks now as well.
BIOS update ?
It's a CPU microcode update isn't it ?
Re: "devices with batteries that are half the size but deliver double the run times"
Aye; although Intel is worse than AMD, we're still screwed till someone sorts out display technology.
And I'd still rather have a same-sized but four times longer lasting battery, thanks, much like how I don't need yet another thin phone which barely lasts a day.
Re: Real user names??
Google+ doesn't have that policy any more.
Re: Hmmm not so sure
Indeed. Oracle's own docs (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/options/advanced-security/advanced-security-wp-12c-1896139.pdf) say "Data Redaction does not prevent
privileged users from connecting directly to the database and running ad hoc queries that back into pieces of sensitive data ( ie. it does not stop exhaustive ad hoc queries or other inference attack ). "
You can already check-in online and go directly to the gate area (with hand luggage). You can even drop suitcases off the day before.
None of this needs a photo of a (my ?) passport to be taken by anyone.
"That is not to say, however, that you can now leave your paper passport at home. The phone image will not pass for TSA identification "
So what exactly is the point ?
Apparently, HTTP2 still has the 'allow interception by default' privacy-destroying auto-proxy 'feature' too...
What about OKCupid who deliberately sent people on dates with people who they weren't compatabile with ? That's the opposite of the service they payed for...
"“Sharing a proportion of your wi-fi with Fon is safe and secure as any external usage is sent through a separate channel on your BT Home Hub meaning your activity stays private,"
So we wont be arresting people who run Tor exit nodes then ? Who wants to be *that* test case...
Still bust here (Manchester)
Re: Flash on Linux
Gnash fails to run just about every non-trivial Flash app I've slung at it.
Seems like all the antitheft and so on is defeatable with chewing gum. Their not stupid enough to make this joke default to not starting, right ?
Re: Think motorsport
That's what the Kangeroo system you used to be able to get for F1 did. But Bernie kicked them out and no one else has stepped in. Maybe there is no market after all ?
BT sell football for a living, internet access is an extra...
No.... having every device in your house internet routeable by default is not a secure plan...
Adobe AIR did and still does, when paired with Apache Flex allow this. It's incorrect for the article to state "It is not possible to develop native code for iOS without using a Mac to compile and build" as I've built .dpg on Windows.
You only need a Mac to upload to the App Store right at the end because Apple are cocks.
Re: Whoa there
"In terms of functionality, TrueCrypt fell somewhere between EFS and Bitlocker. It allowed you to have a single BLOB containing many things, but that BLOB could not contain your host operating system."
Wrong. TrueCrypt provides full (hard) disk encryption.

Re: Conflict of Interest?
Or turn on developer mode and use an unpacked extension, which bypasses the restriction.
Re: internet bank...
Barclays dongle has already been cracked - you can pre-generate a roll of numbers to take away with you.
Pad, not screen.
"Upshot - if Lavaboom does not have my keys as they reside with me (outside of Germany), am I not safe? "
Nope, you have the Hushmail problem - they can (and were) forced to deliver malicious code when certain people logged in that saved plain text versions.
Maybe they'll finally do an MP3 and go DRM free to save the expense of whack-a-mole with lawyers...
malloc() on your platform might, but openSSL have their own wrappers around it, and cache the allocations before calling down to the O/S, so it neatly sidesteps that protection.
Err, so isn't the fix that MailMan etc. need to rewrite the DMARC/SPF headers ?
Re: Net neutrality nonsense
" traffic should be treated equally, without discrimination, restriction or interference, independent of the sender, receiver, type, content, device, service or application"
So spam filtering is against the law then ?
Re: Pointless wrangling
"I would only buy an ebook if I knew for certain that I can strip it clean of DRM. No matter what the legislation says."
This. I want my book to last longer than one company, tyvm. Hence a Kobo and a copy of WINE for Adobe's Digital Editions and some Python. Win.
There was some fuss about Adobe forcing a quick-march upgrade on the publishers to a version that didn't WINE. VirtualBox would be required then I suppose.
Re: Good performance? Scalable?
"Of course Java is going to be slower, C++ is compiled to machine code for the CPU it's running under.. not byte-code ran in a VM that's different to the host CPU!"
Come back when you understand how modern JVMs work. Wikipedia hint: JIT
"Finally, if going abroad give the customers an easy way to inform the bank, we are going to be in country X between Y and Z."
Barclays let you do this online. Which is probably why they didn't panic and send me a SMS alert when I payed the builder in cash the other week...
Because it doesn't send a message, in terms of cold hard cash, that you do not want your internet censored.
Discuss all this and more with Phil Booth in person this Tuesday in Manchester : http://www.meetup.com/ORG-Manchester/events/164318842/
Re: I doubt that you ticked opt out
Although https://www.faxyourgp.com/ makes it even easier.
Don't forget to pop in to Manchester next week for a talk on this very topic !
Phil Booth from http://medconfidential.org will be on hand to answer all your questions, along with someone from the ICO.

That's what asm.js is for
Two upcoming events in Manchester : http://www.meetup.com/ORG-Manchester
Hang on. I show someone a *picture on my phone* and they hand over money to me ? There must be more steps here, right ?
Re: meet the Law of Unintended Consequences...
Bricking your own phone is one thing. Having someone else pretending to be the police and bricking any phone they like ? That's another
Why Android ? Wouldn't flogging a SteamBox make more sense, especially with their own store ?
