I think the phrase your looking for is 'pork barrel politics'
Virtually everything you need to harden a network to the point of complete invulnerability is available free of charge
Really, I think the article your commenting on disagrees with you somewhat.
As do I
Bet you work for Sony
You got a link to this other el reg site your on about?
.....and Nokia here works fine offline on Android too (and probably other OS's)
......and just how is the drone or driverless truck going to post a letter through a letterbox?
'Hummocky' is one of those words which are scientifiky longhand for 'WTF'
Cos all those pitchforks you bought will go to waste
I don't think so
Well its a bit early but, go on then, I'll have a pint of whatever your drinking
So the comets atmosphere is almost 4% oxygen? OK it's 4% of not a lot but bloody hell 'jaw dropping' is pretty apt.
Huawei has been largely frozen out of the US market, after the White House cited national security concerns.
Well that caused a spike in my irony meter.
.......and of course the NSA has all the judges browsing history
Oooh look what I found http://www.timworstall.com/
As others have said its a shame that el reg can no longer afford him, must be all those ad blockers were using
I particularly love the ones who can stare at a screen of hex and infer something important for the plot from it (beyond 'oh look, a bunch of hex')
I can do that, after staring at the screen for less than 30 seconds I regularly (used) to infer that I am not down the pub at the moment but soon will be.
Would someone care to explain how the American senate improving (or removing) privacy rights for American citizens has any effect on non existent privacy rights for non Americans?
What they actually mean is
'The bloke who pours the gloop into the bottles from a bucket lost the funnel'
The obvious answer is that all manufacturers are doing it.
If somehow we could get rid of these companies whilst keeping the honest ones, the process would be much more accepted.
Well yes but only because there aren't any 'honest' cold call company's
I think I would be finding a new favourite bar.
Have Google got a new logo? You would have thought someone would have mentioned it
hmmm ........ and I wonder what the specs of a sub $50 phone will be?
Actually it appears we do, I think it's something like 'the one who bottles it first gives way'
Should you go watch it? Why not?
Because you will just encourage 'them' to keep making crappy films out of (possibly) good ideas
Pish, use enough gaffer tape and she'll be right.
I am pretty sure Google never actually delertes anything. The only thing that 'expires' is your ability to access them
Some of us in the UK realized that a while ago and employ a proper structural engineer, the cost is not much more than a bog standard 'survey'
"Google Photos will not use images or videos uploaded onto Google Photos commercially for any promotional purposes, unless we ask for the user's explicit permission."
I note that he doesn't say that permission will need to be given, just that 'they' will ask for it.
......and once you have uploaded photos to them don't even think about changing your mind and trying to delete them, the most you can do is delete your own access to them.
'If you want absolute security then you need a paid cloud service.'
Hahaha, oh be still my aching sides.
Absolute security and cloud, really?
So what would stop you licking a cats genitals then?
Calm down dear, you should note that it doesn't say that it was emailed to el reg.
I suspect The Reg has found it moire effective to make friend's with GCHQ
Some of us went to school a long (long long) while ago and then went on to do more specialized education consequently, while others may view us as intelligent (possibly) we, and the article author, are quite aware that there may be huge chasms of forgotten knowledge in our lumps of grey matter.
........although of course some of us are just thick and need to be spoon feed this scientificy type stuff.
That's what I thought but at least you will be able to watch the thieves on HD video while they do it.
Have a down vote for being (possibly) the annoying ejit driving at 43 mph on a clear road this morning oblivious to all the traffic qued behind him.
Made me glad I was on the bandit :-)
Have an upvote for the Blackadder reference
I am quietly proud of the fact that I have no idea which vacuum cleaner is best.
I hope whoever buys it doesn't bugger it up to much as it seems to be the best navigation thingy on my phone.
Istanbul is one of my favorite cities, and that's mainly down to the people that live there.
It's time for some _really_ open source computers.
.......and NSA will kindly supply some people to help compile it free of charge.
I think its time to invest in some typewriter manufacturers.
Beer goggles, they have gone and made real beer goggles!
Well said that man, I also like my 1320 but come replacement time I cannot see me buying another windows phone.
But hey, it was kinda nice while it lasted.
The research was published in hefty boffinry mag Nature
So what mag do skinny boffinry get published in?
You do know that the metric system has far more advantages than just counting in 10's don't you?
Awesome, just bloody awesome.
Well done and thanks to all involved
I quite like the one year battery life on my vivofit, just sayin'.......
....... and another thumbs up for a badge.
Perhaps, just to help out you understand, all those in favour could just up vote this post? ;-)
.... although all those against can bugger off
I just plug my 625 into the PC and copy and paste from phone folder to PC folder no need for any fancy software, I assume its the same for any windows phone isn't it?
Out of curiosity, does it also have ixquick?
I see Nowtv are having 'issues' getting the latest episode (season 4 episode 8) of Game of Thrones working, anyone any idea what the problem is?
Well apart from the fact I subscribed to NowTV obviously
Been there done that, and for £150 a Nokia 625 has been surprisingly good so far.
I suspect Microsoft will bugger it up in a year or two though so I would recommend you to make hay while the sun shines.
Well I tried to follow your link to 'zombie' my google+ account but it wants me to log in first which is a slight problem because I have no idea what my Google plus email address is, I set one up years ago to access the play store, and I have even less chance of remembering my password.
But hey, I opened the link to log in so that's one more 'active' Google plus member this month I suppose.
Its main use seems to be for food 'porn' in this household.
