Re: equips tinfoil hat
Microsoft doesn't need to pay Symantec to break Windows. Symantec can do that all by themselves.
"Samsung has conducted three audits of Dongguan Shinyang since 2013 and said it had found no cases of child labour."
What type of audits were they?
Were they announced audits?
If companies such as Samsung and Apple are so bothered by this why don't they have surprise audits? or undercover workers?
These big companies only seem to care when things start making headlines.
This reminds me of a financial controller we had, the guy just wouldn't believe in was his spreadsheet causing the issue.
Excel using 900MB of RAM and pagefile size through the roof, horse to water and that kind of thing.
A good goal but i'd like to see better customer services on the phone and an end to all the excuses they come out with.
Sending an hour on the phone being transferred through nine departments only to put back through to the first person I spoke to was ridiculous. Being told after all that time that the internet package we have doesn't support DNS was funny but not helpful. Google search and found in 30 seconds on their own forums.

Re: Good Thing (TM)
Tony Blair had nothing to do with British Rail being privatised. Privatisation of BR started under John Mayor's Conservative government.
Time to celebrate
Symantec Anti-virus is a terrible product and compared the other offerings it doesn't detect 1/4 of what others can detect. It has bugs / security vulnerabilities, it's a resource hog and it doesn't like uninstalling itself.
A product i'm certainly not going to miss.
Bye Symantec don't come back too soon.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer scumbag!
They've blamed games, films, music and everything else in between.
He stabbed her and he is the reason she is dead.
What, no backup system? or was that having an issue as well?
"Last year’s consultation made it very clear that there would be a rigorous accreditation process for anyone wanting access to the data and that any access would take place in a secure environment. Those accessing data would be subject to the same confidentiality provisions as HMRC staff, including a criminal sanction for unlawful disclosure of taxpayer information."
Rigorous accreditation process and confidentiality provisions really?!
Sorry but i'm not convinced by that statement.
Atari 2600 = a mean machine.
Shocking! Sorry i'll get my coat.
Slim line story, big set pieces and lots of killing as you would expect in the single player campaign.
Multiplayer has some new killstreaks, new maps, new weapons etc but it still has the same old campers and spawn killers.
It sounds to me like this man should not be running a company.
Denying boarding for someone who is being disruptive or someone who is drunk I can understand but threatening someone over a twitter post seems a little over the top.
I'm surprised there was no challenge for ID or verfication with their IT department. Did they have fake ID?
I'm shocked that they don't have or have lax device control security. I'd have expected a bank to take security seriously.
A case for chavs to be stopped from breeding surely!
I don't know about anyone else but I think these people might want access to safe drinking water, crops to feed themselves and maybe even a safe and stable country.
More people that still haven't learnt that outsourcing doesn't work.
Sending records of that nature to the wrong fax number once is careless but doing so over a three year period and even when there is an ICO investigation going on is just plain negligent.
£75k is not a sizable fine.
Heads should roll over this.
Cheap knock offs are cheap for a reason.
I guess these people still haven't learnt that outsourcing doesn't work.
That must have been a scary situation.
How long before they turn up and excuse people of looking at suspected subversive websites?
Once you put pictures on the internet you have no control over them.
I wonder if they have an automatic system for starting lawsuits against other companies. If so they could start a lawsuit with themselves.
Now that would be funny.
300GB wow that's a disk.
Hopefully it won't be a big as a Laser Disk.
"Apple's Huguet said that Apple chose to drop the case now because its App Store brand had grown strong enough to not require additional legal protections. "
I guess that would translate as we couldn't win so we'll let them off.
Sounds like a kid that should have known better being stupid.
Freedom of speech is a good thing but there are some responsibilities that have to be observed when using it. The most important one being not talking complete ****.
That's really going to hurt, good thing her boss kept a level head and put the fire out.
Thankfully i've never had this happen to me.
If that's a 'momentous year' what's a bad year?
It will be interesting to see what they've come up with but i'm not sure about the always on function. If the console has the always on function I won't be buying one.
Regardless of how you feel about using Flash one thing in certain it's a buggy mess.
The ZX Spectrum, helping nerds and geeks get laid since 1982.
A good addition to many Star Trek fans collection but I wouldn't pay that much.
"An ICO spokesperson said:
We have recently been made aware of a possible data breach involving UKPC, and are now making enquiries into the circumstances of the alleged breach before deciding what action, if any, needs to be taken."
Shouldn't that say what action will be taken.
I don't agree with always on and I don't think I ever will. My console is not always on and I think I should be able to decide how I use the product I legally purchased.
At first I didn't like XP that much but I got used to it. Now it's like those old comfortable slippers people have.
Re: The funts are still loose in the asylum!!
The cash machin at my local bank runs on XP. I know this because it got hung on the shut down screen.
Whether you agree or not with how anti-spam organisations operate, blocklists are a necessary evil.
Windows 8 Second Edition?
Can't really judge as we don't have any information about the stare of their relationship.
First thought was turning down sex to play on an Xbox, someone needs to sort out their priorities.
This is just negligence plain and simple.
If I Iphone hasn't got any pants on does this mean it's naked?
If there is lapse in basic procedure then someone needs to be held accountable.
With all the previous press coverage why did these people think it was OK to send disks out unencrypted?
Funny yes but hardly news worthy.
RIANZ has also told NZ Radio it believes installing a BitTorrent client is proof that an individual is sharing files illegally.
There was me thinking that BitTorrent also had legal applications as well. Oh well silly me.
Well I can't really complain about more Thunderbirds, how about more Captain Scarlet?
"We have a right to privacy in our Constitution, but this does not mean a fundamental right to data protection,"
I'm sure it in the American Constitution but over here that means nothing. We have our laws and you have yours.
