Can I put Windows 8 on it? What about XP?
Not another Googlehatefest! How will they cope?
Actually the google motto is "don't be evil".
If you've got sources...
(or tickets for Googlehatefest, it sounds awesome!)
I think the bile is for the "We don't have to follow the rules like everyone else" attitude, not this specific infraction.
Resilience is a great thing when used properly. FTFY.
Thanks for clearing that up. No really, well done.
Maybe they just like killing people?
It's not ironic. Threatening someone with violence is not the same as insulting them.
And after they'd signed up another 10 times would you still be so calm and rational as the threats to anally rape you turned up? And another 20? Would you go on indefinitly receiving abuse, just hitting "block" every time?
You sound paranoid and delusional, you really think this is about frightening off investors? You genuinely believe that Amazon and Google will pass up on millions of pounds of profits because Margaret Hodge was mean to them? Bizarre.....
I thought it was obvious that I chose the name Hank to indicate an american. What exactly is your point?
That's beautiful man!
>> If you don't like the idea of Virtru's cloud holding your keys, you can set about creating your own one if you ask nicely. <<
The article says this is designed for normal users, as such they probably do want to trust someone else with the keys as the alternative is most likely not having keys.
it doesn't matter how she shares stuff, he's got a memory. You don't have to screen grab or freeze a browser or whatever to recall the contents of an email.
This service is about stopping derek, igor and hank from looking at the mail in transit, isn't it? And it sounds like it makes a decent fist of it.
That's the only rational position, isn't it? We are talking about businesses.
An even more complete solution would be to swtich the computer off and go outside.
Facetiousness aside, disabling this feature is very secure but not very forward looking. The voice and video apis in the new web standards are an important part of providing proper, cross browser, cross device and multi os support for communication apps. That is what we should be aiming for.
The spec for this feature needs to be "disabled in all windows by default, can be explicitly enabled in a single window, that window cannot enable other windows". If Google just impelemented that I'm sure the "living standard" would follow....
Is it the bloke with a phone the size of his head?
Seems bizarre to single out Nintendo for this hatred when the big games publishers are much worse. The "moribund milking of franchises" surely applies more to the regular COD and FIFA updates than to Nintendo.
That'd be Skyward Sword, November 2011.
Because Nintendo don't milk franchises like other publishers do. They tend to do a single Kart per hardware platform. It's part of their charm.....
That'd be "a link between worlds", the one they released just before Christmas.
It's pointless to abbreviate then type the thing in full underneath.
I disagree. I find the Sony store to be a total pain to use, it's ugly, searching for a game invariably brings up a load of other hits before the thing that's an exact match for what you typed and browsing the store is clunky. I quite often browse the 3DS store to see what's available, I find the interface much more attractive and I've purchased a few things I've spotted whilst browsing (around the 6-7 quid mark), whereas I only really look in the ps3 store if there's something I specifically want.
Steam store I quite like though!
Doesn't Vince have copyright on that?
No, you stop paying yourself so much and share it around a bit with the people who do the actual bloody work.
Yeah, that's the only possible interpretation.
Yeah, can't have the plebs being overpaid, that's a management perk.
The fact you choose to use Apple services doesn't mean Google can ignore your privacy settings. Why would you think those two things are linked?
Right. We've got two succesful updates right here. This article is obviously full of shit when it claims that every update is bricking phones.
What? It didn't say that? You sure? Why else would people think it was worthwhile posting a "my phone updated ok" message if we already know that a lot of phones are updating ok?
Oh, it's to give smartarses like me something to bitch about? Tidy!
Only 22 years after it went in! Sweet!
"wait_for_completion_interruptible_timeout" seems pretty helpful, more helpful than "x" anyway.....
Doesn't your IDE complete that stuff for you once you start typing anyway?
As Mary so rightly points out, the presence of a known NSA stooge doesn't make everyone else clean, they have many employees. For the standards group to have any credibility he surely has to go.
You don't need to worry about being up to date, but you might want to worry about updates removing functionality you use. If you're not paying to use a service then Google have no reason to maintain features they don't want to....
Automatic security patches are great (up to a point) but automatic "updates" to application behaviour can cause all sorts of problems.
Please stop discussing this and get back to work plebs!
You say that like it's a good thing. It would be much better if the number was known and it was insignificant. You imply that this lack of knowlege is because the number is small, I hope you're right, I fear you're not.
Too right. Letting you know you have malware on your phone is pointless if you can't automatically quarantine it. I'd rather let it run if the alternative is having to take some action myself....
Yeah, nothing says "Apple" like a build it yourself router. Or a terabyte of storage for 10p.
Depends whether I want to sell your phone or use it to impersonate you in an email or sms. If I'm trying to blag that I am you then stealing the phone will alert you that's something's afoot. Clearly there is limited but real potential for this to be exploited.
From the article: As a result, any rogue app can at any time remove all existing locks.
If this is true then you could have malware on your phone that I could trigger when I see you leave your phone unattended and disable the lock. But you don't think that's a "real world implication"?
It's disrespectful to call her that!
Should call her Liz!
never too late!
And the evidence to back up your theories is?
Refreshing, isn't it!
but if you're surfing in english then it's highly likely that Google Analytics is tracking pretty much every site you visit. And that allows them to monetise you to advertisers.
So, assuming the original quote is a translation, what he said may well have been quite reasonable, you aren't using their services directly but their analytics service is certainly using you.
By that logic we can all write the complete works of Shakespeare, but he just got there first.
Sounds ridiculous to me, I know I couldn't create what he did. Art is an expression unique to the artist (or in this case artists), no one else can "get there first" because no one can be someone else.
A three line post is hardly a rant, and the "it's the third party code that's shit" argument is equally true whether running on Windows or *nix.
