I wonder how this will impact AMD's *PU designs
Will we be seeing a 14nm A12?
Could this be the technological leg up that will re-igniite the great Intel/AMD debate, or is this going to only affect ARM-type SoCs?
Have you read El Reg's motto? I think paying them just makes 'em bite harder.
Re: Through its contact form?
SQL injection is my guess, as well.
I wouldn't expect a surgeon to be aware of the latest developments in web site security, but I would expect that they hired someone who is to develop and maintain their site. However, it seems that a lot of professionals in other industries believe that "any one can make a web site", and worse even those who do hire an expert to build the site do not see fit to have it maintained.
I am not familiar with the site in question, but based on previous experience, it could be 10 years old... or written by someone who was "cheap" and either new to building sites, or an old dog who last learned a new trick 10 years ago.
Re: Oh come on, it's not rocket science.
It's ballocket science!
"Nothing against Akamai, but seriously: they held off replacing certs because they thought they were secure? Ugh," said Matthew Green
Umm.. a bit like everyone using OpenSSL then? If you believe you're secure, why would you replace certs that are not threatened?
Full marks to Akamai for acting responsibly when the flaws were pointed out.
Re: Doh....(@cornz 1)
Ahh, so the fact that a great deal of you cant see it because your eyes are bad warrants disagreeing with my factually correct statement. Or that your crappy Hu-Flung-Dung ebay connectors were moulded wrong also warrants the downvotes.
Oh the butt hurt......
Translation: "The fact that my suggestion is useless to a large number, and the "always true" assertion is not always true makes people want to down-vote me for coming across as arrogant and calling them stupid.
Ow, my butt hurts"
Re: Thats stretching it a bit.
"Slightly" denser? 1000-fold improvement is slight? I bet your boss loves it when you ask for a slight increase in pay.
Claire Perry would be perfect!
Who else would have the same level of technical competence that could prevent (even more) large-scale snooping. Even (especially) if she's in favor, it's bound to fail; given her displayed level of know-how in regards to internet filtering.
Re: The internet distilled
But where's the porn? You can't have 'the internet distilled' without the porn.
Re: And This
Fair play, that was a bit of a troll.
And I did miss the bit about the data being on "your own home network". I did read the "your stored data was not affected by this service interruption" bit and jumped the gun. I did not think that a company PR department would think to tell users that a webserver "elsewhere" would not nuke their local drive. I can see users asking about it, but a preemptive "we think you're thick" is a bit unexpected.
Is why I like my hard-drives physical. At least when they push up daisies, I know why.
I believe that Yahoo! is in fact haunted.
Haunted by the ghost of all the blink tags they killed when they closed geocities. All of the blink tags, and all of their associated bad HTML is now haunting the Yahoo! servers, making all of the code to a standard similar to what was found on geocities.
It's a code-tergeist.
I was discussing this upcoming movie with friends the other day. The over-arching consensus was "Disney can't do too much worse than Lucas did".
This opinion was backed up by a showing of the Star Wars Holiday Special.
Re: This friend of mine....
I had a USB port that would accept plugs either way, and it was a USB port. They would only work in one direction, and I imagine that the periodic plugging them in upside-down severely shortened the lifespan of devices.
The plastic blocking bit had fallen out of the port.
Re: What about On-The-Go?
PS. As for a spec, perhaps it's time to stop using adjective names and start using numbers. USB 10 sounds like a good starting point, in any event.
BUt USB two is already in use, and 10 has very little head-room for growth. My vote is for USB 0101.
A friend of mine held the belief that Google had supplanted God
In the past (BG) when people had a question that they could not reason out an answer to, they asked their priest, or prayed; now they just Google it.
Re: Boring Read
If you found Win95 extremely usable, you never used OS/2. IT came out a fair bit prior, and '95 felt like visiting the parents after having moved out: it was familiar, but the kitchen is re-organized and your bedroom had been turned into a yoga studio.
Win95 was usable, but only just.
So, the big question is, is it worth £30 or closer to £20 if you shop around? Well, that depends exactly how interested you are to see how far one of gaming's premiere franchises has evolved.
Or, wait until the people that felt it was worth the £30 play the 15 hours, and get it used for £10.
Or have the games publishes finally succeeded in killing the second-hand market?
Re: If food is not "organic", it logically must be "inorganic"
Everything I eat, with two exceptions, is organic.
The only things I eat that are not molecules containing carbon are water (h2O), and salt (NaCl).
Although, some of my salt is smoked, so it may even count as organic (and the flavour it adds is truly excellent).
Re: let me be your fibre provider
Hmm.. T-mobile (US) seems to have been courting buyers for some time now. That would give the G-Men a very nice start, but at what cost to T-Mobile users' privacy?
Having said that, I think I would rather Google buy T-Mobile (US) than AT&T.
I am disappointed: after reading the article and the comments, there is no usage of the term 'Roobot.
Re: Big Bang (@ Bunbury)
You are close. Imagine a bomb with the casing coated in bomblets, so the Big Bomb goes off launching/scattering the bomblets, these then go off sending their casings all over, some of those casings may collide.
Or Fireworks: We've all seen the ones that fan out, and then have secondary shells which them throw sparks in all directions; sometimes, those paths cross. In a firecracker as big as the universe, it is guaranteed that some embers will hit each other.
Re: well personally
"I'm not dissing Filezilla, I am dissing your instructions."
If I were training an toddler on how to do this, then maybe.
Neither my 5 year old son, my 93 year old grandmother, nor (most) of the tech support clients I had (from 1997-2003) needed the kind of hand-holding you espouse for the "average" user.
Also: The Dropbox install is about on par with the filezilla setup, so if they can't setup filezilla, how are they going to work Dropbox?
Which Album to use
My vote is Emerson, Lake, and Palmer's Brain Salad Surgery.
Re: No need to imagine.
so, £168 in insurance, how much was the shop price for the 160GB iPod Classic they "gave" you?
Re: I find it humourous that ...
When condemning the US government for hypocrisy regarding Human Rights and Freedoms, it is in poor taste to bring up the Drone Strikes and "acceptable" collateral damage. It is more apropos to bring up the percentage of the population incarcerated, which is the highest in the world.
There once was a poet sublime
Who had mastered rhythm and rhyme
But his limericks, they tend
To come to an end
An epic Limerick or a Limerick Epic
either way, full marks to Bob Duncan.
It kind of reminded me of reading "The Cremation of Sam McGee"
Re: A limerick by definition
A limerick packs laughs anatomical
In space that is quite economical
But the good ones I've seen
So seldom are clean
And the clean ones so seldom are comical
I wish US cell customers got ripped off as bad as those in the UK; it would cut my bill in half, if not more.
Re: Did I miss something?
I believe that Oscar Selfie is a dis-owned cousin of Keyser Söze.

El Reg, Can you please add a popcorn icon? These kinds of articles warrant it for so very many reasons.
Re: Trade not aid Hmm... aren't we missing the point here?
Give a (hu)man a fish, and (s)he'll eat for a day
Teach 'em to fish, and they will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.
Re: Say Wha?
To be fair, the various Popes have also been telling them not to have sex outside of marriage, which would have vastly minimized the spread of AIDS.
I agree with you on religion being a complete crock, though.
Re: My Spotify recommendations can be a bit, er, 'left field', too…
If it were Grooveshark giving you those recommendations, I would have to apologize, as Infected Mushroom does share a few of my playlists with Dropkick Murphy's, next to Mindless Self Indulgence and Penny Black Remedy.
But, as I don't use Spotify, I got nothin'.
I will have to check out Inspiral Carpets.
Re: I find that nappies
Sanitary napkins work even better. Tampons, with their applicators, can even help staunch a deep puncture wound.
Although, if you are using a full-sized nappy to soak up the blood, I don't think first-aid is your goal.
Hmm.. Where are Don Jefe's comments
Knowing that that's his backyard, I would expect that he would have some insight.
I'll be nice and presume that he is still hungover from the festivities. This is no way to imply that he was the one receiving the visit from his Mrs.
Why Gary McKinnon et al faced extradition ...
1) They were hunting on the Intel Agencies' private reserves
2) They exposed holes that then had to be closed, holes that The Agencies may have wanted to use
3) Because what The Agencies are doing is illegal, so anyone doing the same must also be breaking the law
4) They did not have the money/political power/blackmail material/agents to "make it all go away"
All perfectly valid reasons</sarcasm>
The point of the last paragraph, as I read it, was that if tech and media were to work together, there would be more money in the system; enough for everyone. Between the way the system worked out and the only currently successful(-ish) model of business, there has not been any new money drawn into the system; and the current business practices have categorically failed to create any new wealth in the system.
Re: When they parody an artist or band it's called
Is it wrong that when I read "pastiche" it sounds in my head like "piss-take"?
Re: What do they expect?
"Americans are hyprocritical moronic prudes. [snip] There have been hundreds of similar examples."
But it's not really our fault. Some country, not that I'm naming names, sent all of their overly-repressed megalomaniacs over during the initial settlement, And they sent them in a sound boat. Would it have killed you to have drilled some discreet holes in the Mayflower? Really?!
At least you did not send 'em with enough provisions, but they found a work-around for that.
Re: All stakeholders deserve a voice
Certainly. Some voices are just more equal than others.
Re: Take A Look
You know that limited html tags are allowed, yes?
Are my maths off, or is it Audi's? Usually a 30 month contract will have some of the price shaved off, because you're 1) paying the money up front or 2) a guaranteed income for the length of the contract. Why then is the 30 month contract more than 5x the six month?
It's only $4 more, but I would expect a discount of $15-20 for promising to
use pay for their service for 2.5 years.
Please do NOT let this happen. T-mobile(US) has already done wonderful things for the US cellular consumer. Sprint has been doing horrible things to the US cellular consumer.

Moms Demand Action
We must stop Moms Demand Action! If they get their way, they will want more action, and will change to Moms Demand More Action.

Re: Care to visit our closest exoplanet?
"We have an estimated 5-20 million years left with our own star able to support life"
So, we have about 2 Million years to improve our Tech to travel elsewhere? Have you seen what we've done in the past 100?
