Re: Android versions 4.4 and below = 100% of Android devices
I'm on 4.4.4, that's not 4.4 or under. It's a Moto G so not an unpopular handset.
Re: Stuff the...
None of those things are addressable from the other side of the world though. Anyone on the internet could attempt to compromise your intellifiridge, how many of them could access your house as easily?

Hey, he's only a terrorist, no need to get nasty!

Re: OnePlus One
Moto G has an fm radio, seems to work fine though I haven't used it in anger.
But what about the big boy who started the little and often update fad?
Didn't they say anything about Chrome?
>> Maintaining a large music library looks a lot less attractive when Spotify, rdio, Pandora or Apple's own iTunes Radio and Beats Music put millions of songs a couple of clicks away. <<
I have a friend who uses spotify. Whenever he's browsing his playlists for stuff for us to listen to there are gaps where music that he used to be able to stream is no longer available. I never have that problem with my large music library.
Re: splunking in their pants
They're going caving in their pants? Extreme caving!!
Re: objectivifies potential sexual partners
Humans can have sex without "objectifying" each other. There's nothing wrong with an app that allows consenting adults to find sexual partners. I think the assumption that it requires objectification says more about you than it does about other people.
Re: That has got to be the most idiotic statement I've read in ages.
Yeah, you never struck me as someone who hits "preview" before "submit".....
Re: Can we have an explanation please?
I think it's an attempt to get people to post outraged comments....
Re: A bit of a contrast to the Google chief
Which Google chief? The one who said "If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place" or the one who said "Google policy is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it"?
Which one of them said this? "I actually think most people don't want Google to answer their questions. They want Google to tell them what they should be doing next."
Yeah, MS are definitely the big bad when it comes to privacy.....
If a windows machine comes anywhere near my girls I swear I'll do time!
re: There are also many who aren't happy with the limitations of Windows
If you're not happy with the limitations of Windows don't buy a Windows tablet.
@ Ken Hagan Re: Why is Win 8 and Win 8.1 seperated?
>>not willing to adopt the almost imperceptible changes that came in the latest service pack<<
The search in 8.1 is shit compared to 8, that's a major pain to me as it was the way I launched everything that wasn't nailed to the start bar. Now I'm back to nosing around the program files folder to find things. With 8 you search Programs, settings or documents, in 8.1 it's keener on showing me links to websites than finding my programs.
I wouldn't call that almost imperceptible. I'd recommend 8 over 8.1 for precisely this reason.
Why use your phablet to look prattish when a simple bluetooth earpiece does the same job?
Re: a cheque?
I know! A way of transferring money from my bank where I specify the exact amount! How old fashioned. Give me Direct Debits anyday, I trust all the companies I deal with implicitly!
Re: imaginary friends in the sky
All your really showing there is that you have no understanding of religion and you're crap at taking the piss. Just paraphrasing the same stupid "man in the clouds" comment is not satire.
Science is about how, religion is about why. They don't really overlap.
Re: Humourless nerk.....
Well I found the wanker comment much funnier than the muggles one....
Re: "support websites that are coded using the competition's nonstandard features"
That's the reg hacks trying to get the freetards to bite. Got to admire how well they know their audience!
Re: completely breaks Aero on my desktop
Indeed, who can work without translucent windows!
Re: Not sure it's much different in the end.
Guess it depends on whether you're 3 miles from home or 300. (If your car isn't electric, obviously.)
Re: stepped foot
it's "set foot" or "stepped.
Re: do we believe them? there is another question
Well browse to a html compliance test site in IE 11 and see what is says. No belief necessary.
Re: Web sites haven't got a clue what it is, so send something basic
Not really. The problem is they notice it's IE, but not that it's IE 11. They then render a load of non-standard html that fixes problems on old versions of IE but break the new one because it's standards compliant.
Re: but you can bet your life that the usual suspects....
... will be using this as an excuse to make their usual noises.
That's you that is.
Re: For a specific value of "many"
But what about those who are using their old devices purely as Sonos remotes? Will they appear on your stats? Quite probably not.
Re: Well, it depends on the issue and the patch, doesn't it?
In this case the issue is a vulnerability that was around for 2 years and could have led to certificates being stolen. If those certificates aren't revoked then patching the hole that leaked them doesn't make you secure.
Did you read the article?
It's like groklaw never went away!

Re: make a smart phone startup and eat MS's lunch.
Not many calories in that! Google's lunch would be much more filling....
Re: Hardly any different than....
Except none of the bodies you list in the first paragraph are companies. Google are not an "Independent, not-for-profit product safety testing and certification organization". Why do googletards like to make out that Google have everyone's best interests at heart?
Mark 85, I think the real question is..
..what are YOU going to do about it? Besides pound on the keyboard....
Re: Any app should check for a permission before trying to access it
and if that permission changes? Apps need to gracefully handle things failing, whether that's because of a permission or some other error. There's no harm in checking first obviously, but that's no excuse for crashing if the call fails.
Re: iOS is worse!
Oh, that's fine then. Carry on!
Re: Frankly, who isn't?
I'm not! If my memory serves me correctly....
I thought it was only wrestlers who made this mistake. Promise to never step into an iStore or promise to never set foot in an iStore. "Step foot" is redundant, a step involves a foot. I expect you hold down the fort as well...
@ Waspy, re: Not sure who you're arguing against here,
I'm not arguing against anyone, I'm arguing against the nonsense catchphrase "Extraordinary claims" require "extraordinary evidence".
What makes you think I'm not calm?
"Extraordinary claims" require "extraordinary evidence"...
No, they don't, they just require enough evidence to logically sway the argument. The idea that things outside our current thinking have to have special evidence is just another way of saying "I fear change". Damned data is still data, and ignoring it just makes you ignorant.
Besides, we don't have "evidence" of extra terrestrial life do we? Just sums and observations of the size of the universe that indicate it's extremely likely.

>> But I'm going to game this doge game for sure. <<
Before picking on typos in other people's posts you should learn how to construct a sentence.
Re: I've called a couple of other commentards cunts (because they were)
Like I said, this forum isn't for kids. Name calling can get your post deleted, but it won't be because of the word cunt, it'll be because you're abusing someone.
This forum isn't for kids.
So you can type cunt or fuck without fear of censorship. Would make the quote much more readable if it just had the swear words in....
on whether the thing you're making is just a video or if the act of broadcasting it to millions of fans, all who know nothing about the plot, is also part of the experience. I can see how a creator could consider this leak to be breaking something.
It's not just data collection
They doctored the feeds and changed the way that they worked for specific users. How does that fall under the Ts&Cs about data collection?
Re: Install Pri-fi
The article is about devices broadcasting a list of the last 15 wifi hotspots they've been connected to and how that can give people a good idea of who you are and where you've been. What's the relevance of this MAC address discussion?
and post a link then! Got cyanogen for it?
Re: Who Said She Said
Presumably the server logs of the emails and texts would give us a good idea of who said what. The statement from the management saying "Through that process, it has become clear that Mr. Mateen sent private messages to Ms. Wolfe containing inappropriate content." seems pretty clear though.
Re: there are plenty of better and cheaper competitors
Well tell us who then! Seriously, I'd like an alternative. One that appears on at least some of the checkout pages I visit.
