You know i'm shocked that more people arent concern with the fact that police officers are working security at pirvate companies& that police authorities are getting paid to let their officers do this.
Does this not reducxe the number of police available on patrol & for attending other crimes?
Cannot apple afford to employ their own 'mall security guards' for their shops?
If I was US voter I'd be demanding answers about why publically paid for police officers are getting sold out to the highest private company bidder and been taken away from their purpose of protecting all the public & society, not just those that use apple (or other private company) stores
Re: In the UK ...
.. you don't need a deed poll to change even your surname.
Well you do if you want it to have any legal standing & to be used in reference to your legal entity.
Without a deed poll notice clearly & legally marking out the change the state can simply continue to use whatever name is on your birth certificate & there is nothing you can do about it
Re: She may be right...
I wish I could upvote this over & over & over again for the rest of time.
That post should be put on the front page of every newspaper & news website in the UK for at least 2 days so that it will hopefully sink in.
Thankfully you can change your christian names at will with no need for a deed poll or any legal framework at all. So just think of a name you want to use and start using it
That is of course how it stood the last time I checked, as deed poll explictly stated it was only needed to change a surname. It would not surprise me to learn this has changed in our 'identity' obsessed 'security' theatre of a world :( :(
Sticks out thumb & hails the nearest passing vogon construction fleet for one ticket off this rock even if it means dying a painful death from really bad poetry
Close but no cigar, it's just a Daily Fail reader who got lost after using this modern new thingie called 'gooogle'
Re: You what?
Members of the US armed forces who deal with classified or sensitive information already know not to pass it on to anyone who is not already authorised to recieve said information as they all sign a nice lil non disclosure agreement when they agree to handle such data.
All this declaration does is formalise the fact that you will be considered to have in essence given aid & comfort to the enemy
Its not really a fail, as you'd be communicating with the seller not RM.
Your contract would be with the seller, who would no doubt put RM's ass in a sling upon finding out you didnt get your parcel.
Remember RM want the business retailers provide, so I doubt Amazon, Ebuyer etc et all have to wait 15 (or 30) days before objecting like the rest of us do.
China does still offically have a one child policy in effect. The difference is that now it is not so rigourously policed & enforced.
The chinese state prefering to fine those who have more than one child instead of castration. But it is still in effect & they do still pursue people over having more than one child.
I see no reason why either possessing LOIC or using it against a target you either own or have permission to stress is against the law.
In fact it would be a rather depressing & dire state of affairs if that were true, as it would make other penetration & stress testing tools illegal too, many of which are used for a variety of legal purposes.
Shameful, not one mention of Upgrading & Repairing PCs by anyone!
I cannot believe on this site of 'IT pros' than no one has mentioned that 'Upgrading & Repairing PCs' by Scott Mueller is the bible to swear by.
Much better than a waste of space by haynes that will no doubt tell you to take it to a qualified sevice technician for something as 'difficult' as partitioning a hard drive.
Re: seems a fair price
If you were not challenged by the courses you took then does that not tell you that perhaps you chose the wrong ones ?
And schools do not need more IT at all stages, just because technology exists does not mean it *must* be used. We would do better as a nation to spend more money on what are considered the 'basics' of education such as English (Language & Literature) / Maths & the 3 primary sciences of Biology, Chemistry & Physics.
Improving the teaching and retention of that teaching would reap us many more benefits that stuffing schools full of IT equipment that they really have little use for and wont be used to help education along.
Bloody wonderful, dont idiots ever think first?
Cant anyone see what this guy has done?
Why dont ID-10-T folks ever think first, all he has done is give governments a reason to regulate 3D printing.
No doubt some senator will grab onto this and use it as a 'wont you think of a kids' thing to pass restrictive legislation against homebrew £D printers like the RepRap, which they will they try to force on the world no doubt using threats (probably such thingsa like cutting off countries who dont agree to regulation from US banking institutes etc)
Re: Lucky he's not in the UK
That doesnt tend to matter anymore in the UK, the esteemed police of UK plc seem to make the assumption that if you have possession to a device you have the necessary credentials to use those devices
So it would be assumed you know the unlock pattern and were deliberately withholding that information, ego breaking our utterly retarded laws
Typical Politician Claptrap
Nothing to see here folks, normal service is resuming at the House of Commons, once again people who have no idea what on earth they are talking about are trying to get something canned simply because they have a personal problem with it.
Are these really the type of people we want running our county?
It never stops, first it was any music that wasnt classical, then the silver screen, then music came around again in the3 form of blues/jazz/rap etc and lets not forget how skateboards were all some sort of commie plot in the 70s/80s and of course now we have music. videos & computer games taking the blame.
You know just once I'd like these politicians to get confronted after saying stupid things like 'video games make you violent' with the peer reviewed evidence that shows there is no evidence whatsoever to show that playing violent video games can actually turn you into a violent person or increase a persons level of violence.
PS - ElReg, I want the hand grenade icon back pretty please with a cherry on top :)
You know I hate to say things like this, but;
I remember the good old days, when you could pay with physical cash for an item or service rather than all this non-cash that only exists in 1s & 0s
One Ticket please
Off this rock with all of its stupidity & foolish disagreements.
Will gladly accept a one way ticket or any 3rd class tickets going on any passing alien vessels.
Prior Art anyone???
As I recall from my days play the battletech games, that there was a 'pod' in use at various VR locations across the world that you could sit in and gave you the immersed feeling of actually being inside the cockpit of a mech.
I recall they used the word pod in their name, perhaps the company that made them could remind apple that they werent the first to use the word pod in their products in the technology world & as such have no rights to stop anyone else from using it.
Or is that just too much common sense to expect from the legal profession??
All those corpses
As the title suggests all these corpses & dead bodies following simon & the PFY aroudn must be pretty numerous, considering the amount of people locked in tape safes, random rooms etc.
I do so hope they have a contingency plan for the incoming zombie apocalypse? Come on Simon, we need to know, how will you deal with the zombie hordes of your victims?
What happened to like reformatting and installing a different OS?
Or assuming that would have caused problems how about a bit of blacktape over the webcam & mic when your not actively using it? I mean its not like its rocket science & provides you with reasonable security against a remotely activated camera/mic.
Daft kids & insanely stupid school administrators, who deserve the book throwing at them over this. In any other setting the person activating the 'security' software would be labelled a right perv and the tabloids would have a field day with them.
And if you need to have something like a pacemaker but dont want the tattoo or have issues about having tattoos??
What you dont get the life saving treatment?
Typical stupid ideas punted by stupid people who have no idea of thee real world & therefore should really keep their big damned mouths shut!
Lack of training!
It shows a lack of training on the part of the police or an unwillingness to use said training. Am I seriously supposed to believe that 3 officers all of whom should have had some sort of 'CQB' training that should include how to use a baton effectively, how to bring down a person of any size (yes its that easy, even a 4ft nothing can bring down a 6ft 15stone monolith, with the right knowledge) and how to restrain them afterwards with minimal hurt or bodily harm to both parties.
Either they werent paying attention or they dont want to risk injury, either way they have demonstrated that they do not belong in any police force.
And all police officers should be made aware that when they take on the job they are signing up to be shot at / knifed / kicked / bit/ spat at / punched & even killed in the line of duty. If they arent up to accepting that risk and all that it means then they shouldnt try to do the job
@ AC 14:48
Actually I am chronically ill with little hope of recovery and ever getting anything like a 'normal' life, it'd be nice to walk to shops without a walking stick, it'd be nice not to have to be so drugged up that i cant work.
It'd be nice not to have arthritis rampaging through my spine and it'd be nice not to have one of my hips slowly destroying itself.
It'd be nice if all this could have waited till i was in my 50s at least rather than in my mid 20s, lots of things would be nice in fact, how about you not making such a stupid assumption
It'd also be nice for the docs that cocked up to admit it, and pull thier fingers out rather than withholding treatment. it'd be nice if they'd done something when i was younger to prevent all this (which was possible)
So next time, crawl back into what ever lil bottle you crawled out of before you decide that just cause you have it hard, none of the rest of us do.
What do they expect after withholding treatment and ruining lives and then after all that saying 'its not our fault'
thats the short story version
damned dirty docs, get your paws off me
Your better off to avoid all doctors and so called medical 'professionals' as they are all a bunch of uneducated and misinformed idiots blundering around in the dark hoping that you dont notice how much of a mess they are making of your body/mind.
Just stay away and you'll be much healthier
So if understanding is a three edged sword, the question has to be asked, what exactly is truth?
Who are you?
What do you want?
Pay no attention to the GNU licenced software behind the curtain
I'm sorry but where exactly does MS get s its legal/pr flacks from?
'Customers, meanwhile, could be "stranded without an alternative set of software" during the re-development work that Microsoft said would cause a "major public disruption".'
Have they not heard of Open Office or are they simply choosing to ingnore that at least one free alternative exists to MS office products not to mention I sure the many other such as Emacs or even other proprietary software that you have to pay for.
think of the danm kids indeed
Oh wont someone please think of the kiddies
I swear the next time someone trots that excuse out to my face they are in for a good 15minute lecture on just what I think of that particular argument.
Bloody kids today dont even know their born, they are so protected, They certainly dont need more protection.
