So we wont be arresting people who run Tor exit nodes then ? Who wants to be *that* test case...

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.

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 ?

It's a bit misleading not to even link to http://www.planetary.org/get-involved/messages/bennu/ which is what you actually need to do.
Re: So. Where are the pictures?
People who are likely to notice this sort of targeted attack aren't targeted by it. Simples, and obvious.

Re: I suspect that the Aereo sea-of-paperclips antenna arrays are fake
Maybe there is a single large amp and rebroadcast array pointed at them - after all I don't know many datacentre's that already pipe coax down from the roof.

They do have a neat side line in the launcher business...

Srsly ? Geez ...
Well, that's just plain bollocks if you are talking to an HTTPS site. Unless TalkTalk have access to a trusted SSL root cert., in which case in short order it'll be revoked.
Friends don't let friends use HTTP - install HTTPS-Everyehere.
Censoring the internet is a problem even if you are not child. For instance an abusive partner can prevent access to rape self-help and support services and call it 'protecting the children'.
Not a good place to be- have you donated to the Open Rights Group yet ?
Re: "hoodwinked by malware-carrying emails purporting to be from their banks"
Real users don't even know where to look for the pad lock for HTTPS... you are assuming way to much.
It's not normal for the fake SSL certificate to be signed by a normal registrar, as opposed to some internal CA.
