Tor is '90 per cent of the net' claims City of London Police Commish – and he's dead wrong

Kane

Re: Maybe...@ Super Tim

Here's the great thing I like about the powers that be; In some instances (NSA/GCHQ etc) they seem to be pretty on the ball as far as teh intarwebs is concerned. They have the ability and/or tech to hoover up as much information about the rest of the world as they want. Then you have total numpties like this guy, who make such hilariously inaccurate comments as he did, that they come across as looking completely inept.

I'm sure those in the know (again, NSA/GCHQ etc), are absolutely loving comments like this made by highly paid public figures, for various reasons. Not least being that it helps to justify their activities to some degree, but also that it helps garner support in the level of policing/monitoring activites on the net that they take part in.

Stone the crows, Bouncer! BT defends TV recorder upgrade DELETION snafu

Kane
Unhappy

Re: I'm no Murdoch fan but...@ukgnome

Sky has just totally overhauled the EPG and front screen - the whole shebang...not a single bit out of place.

Not quite true, we had the Sky box upgrade pushed recently (about 2 weeks ago?), and since then we have lost access to certain channels that we always had access to. Strangely enough, those channels that have a +1 equivalent we can still watch, just not the source channels (for example, Comedy Central HD/SD we can now only watch on +1). Not that I'm blaming the upgrade (correlation/causation etc), but we noticed the channel loss happened the day after the upgrade.

Re: Time out a second here, Skippy

"Later, during the hearing, Kelsey made what some critics may consider to be an outrageous claim. He said: "If 90 per cent opt out [of care.data], we won't have an NHS.""

To me, that didn't sound so much like a claim, as it did a warning.

Re: See this website for details of what's happening and how to opt out...

My GP's surgery had a stack of leaflets made up from the details supplied on www.care-data.info, which the nice lady at reception had to resupply because everyone in front of me had taken a copy. These had the "fill in details" section on them already there to be filled in, very handy.

Just thought I would share.
