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.

Phil Booth from http://medconfidential.org will be on hand to answer all your questions, along with someone from the ICO.

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 ?

Another web site that hides core navigation behind a non obvious hamburger icon in a random corner
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.

No one ever found the source of the Linux kernel back door though did they...
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.
Re: What is the long term goal?
They do have a neat side line in the launcher business...
And/or Linux and get a nice fast laptop for hardly anything...
Re: a token offering meant to be ugly?
"like their hidden overpriced Linux laptops,"
There aren't any for the UK market from Dell.

" This implies complicity from the backbone provider, and in that case why bother to hack it in the first place?"
I don't see why. The NSA (via a suitable front) rents some space on the fibre, same as any other tier one...
Anyone else want to ask their IT equipment maker of choice if they've fixed the holes since 2008 ?

Your kid clearly needs a games console, not a computer then ? Or just get him a Steam account...
There are non-offical-TLG EV3 software environments that work fine on Linux, for a start.
'taking surreptitious photos and video of her '
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.

Don't touch it, and it goes away, and the content doesn't run.
Re: Party like its 2003...
Flash has less vulnerabilities than FireFox itself on your chart :-)
That many stars for a game you can't complete without using Google because they left some instructions out ? Really ?
Re: Bedtime stories
Indeed. The best counter to hate speech is more speech.
Indeed. I just asked my normally privacy and rights upholding ISP (Zen) the same question. Hopefully I can just stop using their (will be broken) DNS and bypass the prompt.
Remote sites are going to be a bit more high risk - at some time X all their remote access will vanish ?
Plus my Kobo Touch reads PDF perfectly well, and I assumed it was the same Reader software at heart

Amarok. Runs on Win32 now...

That's basically what happened for car insurance, right ?
Looks like a SQUID from /Stange Days/ ...
Never mind that, where can I^HSanta get that keyboard for using with OpenELEC ?
Un huh. And people will just buy phones for other people.
Waste of time and money.
Same reason Google does - to do triangulated near-by-WiFI to lat/long conversion without waiting for GPS to warm up.
Re: FLASHblock also blocks the FLASH advertisements
How come you can't disable images any more then ?
I've stayed in hotels that actively interfere, for instance by stripping STARTTLS on SMTP...
"ARM has an obvious interest in Java's future, seeing as its CPU designs need to run it"
Umm, no ? ARM's chips don't execute JVM bytecode last time I looked...
"can't boot a recovery disk made by an Intel-based PC."
I assure you it can; that's what the MS fix is !
Re: Fragmentation grenade?
Nope, Wayland uses Xorg drivers. Mir requires special ones. One reason I'm glad Kubuntu is going with Wayland.
Still tries to foist Ask on you *in a security update*
"* Custom OS image installed into the ROM area of your phone."
Please stop. We are not idiots.
The title is too long.
"One group of people who will be delighted about the changes are trolls, who will now be able to privately bombard their targets with abuse."
Or not, because the target has to opt in to the abuse...
