Why were the posts remove, they were just reporting rebels crimes in Syrian civil and informing FT viewers of videos of rebels crimes exists on Youtube, something the FT should be doing themselves, if they weren't pandering to their own ideologies that the rebels can do no wrong, and giving the rebels 100% backing with little to no criticism.
Guest you going to be punching a lot of police officers. Because it almost guaranteed they will be some of the first people to adopt this equipment.
There already been trials of head mounted cameras in the UK, the consumerisation of the technology will only bring down costs and increase the speed of roll out.
Re: It runs Android?
Chrome OS ;)
That a good solution, but all companies should be require to do it, not just Google.
Re: I don't think you understand...
This has nothing to do GWT.
This is about the technology Google developed in house to build their databases and server management software, such a HADROOP and MAPREDUCE, all of which have been replicated by various open source projects, using research papers published by Google. These have been and still are use by companies like Facebook and Twitter and many others in their own server farms.
Google has never given permission for these technologies to be replicated by the open source communities, and until now there was nothing stopping Google from simply sending cease decease notices to any firm which use these open source versions of this technology and to shut down the projects themselves, as mention companies like Yahoo, Twitter, Facebook.
Google has now basically said that its cool that everyone using its technology without paying for it and that it will not be suing anyone with these patents unless they sue first. Obviously I expect those open source communities will examine those patents closely to see if there are ways to engineer around them, but that will likely take years and Google likely kept some powder dry just in case.
A lot of large websites uses open source versions this type of technology, which was originally developed at Google, so this is good news for a lot of companies that Google aren't going to come knocking at their doors and start demanding they stop using Google technology or license it.
Not according to the European Commission, who boss has stated that they not be pursuing Google on charge of manipulating it search results to make them bias, as it an argument they know they will lose as soon as Google shows the judge all of it products that doesn't appear at the top when using the appropriate search term, for example email doesn't result in Gmail coming top. An probably detail history of how maps or any other products you wish state, that only got to the top in search once it became the most popular use product in the market, I am sure Google got the data to back that argument as well. lots of data.
I would bet ten quid that the EU is about to issue a statement or even sign an agreement with that is roughly opposite of what Microsoft wants. These statements always magically appear in the media just be proceeding goes against Microsoft and it friends, one almost would think they have a spy or two working at the EC and the FTC.
I do wonder whether Seattle licensing department allows establishments that encourage violence against people to keep their license to sell licker. I wonder if they still have customers if their license was suddenly withdrawn.
Re: But Really...
""What is the point in this hacking? ""
To cause disruption to the enemy, to steal information, to cause internal descent, sabotage.
""What is it going to aachieve?""
Any number of aims and goals I am sure the Chinese and US government has. I am sure the Chinese main aim is to steal US military secrets. US aims it probably learn more about the inner workings of the Chinese government, when it spending it cash surplus, friends and foes. An perhaps any secrets the Chinese military has.
What is the damage?
Apparently the US was able to remotely destroy centrifuges using stuxnet in the lab, it unknown what damage they did to Iran nuclear industry, from the outside not very much.
What kind of a millitary organisation has its main system physically connected to the same same network as their web servers?""
None, but you do not need an physical connection to hack a computer system. Just needs someone to connect something up to an outside hard drive, pen drive, or possible even fit a new specially adapted motherboard, RAM that you have manage to infiltrate into their supply chain.
""Why is their system online anyway? ""
"""None one said it was on-line. """
No one said that it needs to be on-line to be hacked. An the US and China are not really talking about the kind of attacks that are appearing as graffiti on websites, even hacking sites and stealing passwords (through given that the bigger the password databases NSA and the like can assemble the more like they are able to build intelligence systems able to guess people passwords more accurately by analysing everything they know about the person), they are talking about the kind of attacks that may take 5 years before paying off, they sits and lurks in their computer systems, spreading silently until they find their target. What they are talking about in public is little more than a distraction to what they are both up to.
An the publicly detected attacks are probably design to divert security industry away from other attack avenues or at the very best design to inform the industry of such attack vectors so they can be fixed, after their usefulness has expired.
They are both as bad as each other.
I wonder if would be possible to create an chrome extension that automatically take you to the tab that is music?
Re: security first
Which goes a bit beyond the mandate of security update. Which should focus on securing the OS not on adding new bells and whistles.
In the original trail Google had the advantage that Alsup actually spent time learning to code and to understood code, he would never have bought this dumb down crap from Oracle and probably would have told them that in court. I suspect Oracle is hoping that the appeal judge they get is a computer illustrate fool that will buy their arguments. They could be right, there are not many judges in the US that already know how to code, and even few that will take the time to learn to code and understand code before issuing a judgement.
Re: I would expect them to have submitted in time
Google always leave to the last minute, in fact all lawyers tend to leave things to the absolute last minute anyway. Let the opposition sweat.
Re: Confused - Security
You are right when it comes to cards there is only 1 factor security most of the time with the pin number only be asked randomly, there also a 15 pound spending limit and apparently some sort of intelligence system that spot unusual activity on the card.
In phones yes you have to unlock them, through I question how many people actually got passwords protected lock screens turn on their devices, any figures for this.
Other security measures, some passive may also become possible, such as facial recognition, finger print scanner built into the phone, Apple bought a finger print scanner company last year that is developing this technology, randomly asking for a pin number issue by your bank, even having to reenter your Google account details, will all come in the future.
Re: What's the benefit for Mr. Confused Punter?
With Google system it means I do not have to carry around the dozen or so cards that I carry. Presuming everyone allows their loyalty scheme cards to be run through Google wallet. Plus theoratically they could come with even more security on top with finger print, facial, voice cognition all possibilities.
Clearly you are part of Google mind control plot, as we now know tinfoil hat enhances mind control technology instead of blocking it.
I enjoyed the show. Especially the Ferengi Quark, Rom, Nog were fun to watch, Odo brilliant, I only wish we had more episodes with Quark and Odo trying to out do each other.
An DS9 did great at combining light hearted episodes and serious and fairly dark episodes.
Elim Garak was a brilliant character.
Julian Bashire was annoying a lot of the time.
An yes it did rip of Babylon 5 a little but I think it also had a lot of things that Babylon 5 didn't.
I seriously need to rewatch both series.
Re: Trek downhill since then
Series 3 of Enterprise was brilliant, and the writers finally got there chance to do a season long story arcs, something they wanted to do since Voyager Year of Hell arc was rejected and I suspect they wanted to do longer story lines in DS9 as well.
Re: Bll Ray *must* be US based
It may be review by the EU but any actions must be undertaken at country level, which is unlikely to happen in the near future. An the fact that Google provides a opt out should protect them as well.
Re: Badboy question
Yes North Korea and China, if you are willing to live under dictatorship, but only the elite in NK get access to the internet anyway. Schmidt is already flying into North Korea to work his magic, so they may not hold out long, China may fall before long through, but at the moment Google barely exist in the country beyond it mobile ads.
Iran is building it own internet cut off from the world, so you could always emigrate there, as long as you do not mind living among Islamic radicals and perhaps latter this year US and Israeli air strikes.
Re: In what ways?
That no relevant to Turtle point, yes the situation is different but Turtle was asking how the EC have been tougher on Google than the FTC.
Leaks about the deal between the EC and Google seem to hint that they will not be that much sterner on Google than the FTC has been in the US. With the leaks pointing towards the two deals looking very similar in structure.
But both the FTC and EC have put negotiating with Google way ahead of fining them or imposing regulations on to Google. Sending Microsoft back organisations in a flight of panic looking for alternative attacks strategies against Google, even lobbying to get the DOJ to pick up the case. This is looking like a resounding victory for Google.
Re: Well, I've got another for them..
Shame they do not actually have the powers to act against Google. They are nothing but a talking shop. Data protection enforcement is done by each individual country data protection commissioner, who will have to launch their own investigations before taking Google to court, and all 27 nations will have to do it.
I suspect most commissioners will think they got better things to do, they certainly did when Google ask for feed back on their new policies.
I suspect Google and the EU commission will settle.
Why the EU commission has less barriers than the FTC did, no US constitution to beat in a right wing supreme court, I am still betting that the EU do not have the evidence to support there case, especially to do with searches. An the deal struck with the FTC sounds very similar to the rumours of the deal being negotiated between EU commission and Google.
Beer, because there nothing better to drink when watching corporations fight each other.
I would say I am surprise but I am not, I predicted precisely this result, an most people outside of the media and Microsoft lobbies predicted the same results, a few tweaks here and there and that all. I suspect FTC will come to similar arrangements with anyone else thinking about using their FRAND patents in the patent wars as well.
There was just to many barriers for the FTC to overcome, down to the powers the FTC, right up to constitutional arguments about whether search results are protected by freedom of speech.
Yeah other companies have cough so Google should as well, more like Microsoft bullied everyone else in the school into handing their dinner money over and doing their homework for them (building Windows 7 and 8 phones that no one wants and no one wanted to build), but finally they have come up against someone that is willing and able to fight back and Microsoft doesn't like that at all.
Re: Some things shouldn't be plugged into the interwebs
An yet you can still steal stuff remotely if the computer system isn't connected to the internet.
For example by infecting worker pen drive or other portable storage unit, with Malware, design it to infect any system its connected to and look for information you want, rocket designs, nuclear warhead design, for example, download information to the portable storage unit, then all it has to do is wait until the storage unit has access to an computer connected to the internet and send back the information back to it masters servers, probably in Tehran, North Korea, Beijing, Jerusalem, Moscow, GCHQ, America. You could even design the Malware package to be place on any portable storage device connected to the computer, giving it multiple routes home or to look for more intelligence on other computers or both.
This is how the US and Israel manage to infect the Iranian enrichment sites, through the use of employees pen drives, portable hard drives, even through it wasn't connect to the internet.
Of cause you can prevent this by not allowing workers to connect up pen drives or portable hard drive to your computer systems in the first place . Which I am sure the Iranians have now done, and I am sure the Japanese will not be far behind in implementing such bans.

Re: Money, Money, Money...
RR may not be interested in build a whole new rocket engines but that may be interested in licensing the pre cooler technology for its jet engines business.
Re: Ocean Acidification is not as Arguable as "Global Warming"
I think it the fact that it real, simple to measure effect is the reason why the sceptics try to avoid any discussion about acidification of the oceans.
Fully understanding the effect of acidification on a vital food source for us humans will take some through , but early signs are not good, with acidification being demonstrated to have a effect on most parts of oceans ecosystems and on several species.
Legal services is one of the sectors that growing pretty rapidly in the UK, the BBC did a report on it a few weeks ago, it has something like 7% growth per year, with a lot of foreign individuals and companies choosing the UK as a place to fight their legal cases,, Russians particularly, but Thai, Indians and South Africans,. our judiciary is consider less corrupt than many others around the world an our laws fair and a lot of other legal systems and commercial laws have been base on UK law, so the court decisions are compatible with a lot of other courts around the world.
I think Russians also find the UK a generally safe place to live, where security services can generally be relied on to warn you if they detect any threats against your life, in Russian they probably the ones that arrange any assignation plots against you in the first place.
Bankers and other financial services have suffered substantial losses in jobs over the last couple of years, it a rather nasty myth that they haven't and will only increase as many institutions are currently over staff.
that should be the browser market, not open source market.
Really. I think its more likely Microsoft will let Mozilla die, one less competitor in the open source market, one less competitor to compete against to impose it vision on to the internet.
Re: @ David 164
At least, I am not a anonymous coward.
Re: Google makes shit products Shocker
Of he didn't, but then that what the headline was design to do. If it was a honest headline, it would have been more Gaping hole found in SSP software use by Google Compare, Go compare and many others ;
But then that not an attention grabbing, Google hating crowd pleaser is it, to be fair a even better more accurate description be "Gaping hole found in SSP software us by price comparison websites" but that even less attention grabbing than the first one I wrote.
I suspect Go Compare offered the anonymous source who discover the hack enough money to keep it quiet and keep it hidden from Google, why Go compare they get a chance to fix their systems before the hacker or someone else go public with story via the Register. That way Google compare and Google as a whole comes away with its reputation damage, Go Compare comes away smelling of roses.
Perhaps Register could confirm whether this anonymous source has any prior dealings with Go Compare and or other price comparison sites and SSP and confirm whether or not he sold the flaw to them and for how much. If this information is not forth coming then do some investigating and find out why it is not forth coming.
Re: conservative republicans?
Whole they use coercion, they are the masters of the art of coercion, whether it the threat of your soul going to hell if you do not pay the church or do something that goes against the church(Christianity, an most other religions) or the threat of burning you alive, or the deepest darkest secrets becoming public knowledge (Scientology) it coercion, an religion are such masters of the art that their own petitioners do not even know they are being coerce in the first the place, it genius really.
Charities and churches all have there own forms of bureaucracy that can be even worst that the state, An churches are known to spend enormous amounts of money relative to their incomes on new churches and on church bureaucracy and a few mansions for the clergyman, some have known to buy themselves a few private yachts, cruise ships, helicopters , once they climb the hierarchy or convince enough fools to hand money over to them. An churches and even charities have there own vested interests as well.
Re: Plug in cars ain't green.
NO3, CO and many others are deadly.
Because the lobby opposing the introduction of electric cars has no answer to them, so they try an stick to the range issue and and try and make this just about CO2, two areas where they have reasonable sounding arguments. The newest argument about electric cars is that they are silent and that blind people will get run down,
As the range issue get solve with better batteries, more efficient electric engines and lighter cars, you can expect them to start to attack the electric car more and more bizarre reasons. They will try anything to keep us hook on petroleum.
Re: Government Committee discovers bloody obvious
Tesla model S Sedan is not poorly equip.
We spend 11 million pounds subsidising electric cars, the NHS spend 1 billion a year on just treating Asthma patents. 11 million pounds to start the conversion of the UK transport system to electric seem like a good use of money.
3,000 deaths a year in London are link to air pollution, mainly from cars, busses an lorries.
I got to wonder if the MPs actually looking at all the costs, including subsidies that the oil industries have attach to it, an how 11 million pound is a insignificant sum of cash.
Re: Plug in cars ain't green.@Mad Mike
They should build some green houses around Drax, they could use them absorb green house gasses and use the excess heat.
Re: Plug in cars ain't green.
Someone better tell Mask that he better strip out those air con an heater from his Tesla electric cars as electric cars can never work with them.
Actually his Telsa cars run just fine with both of them on an in test have done 200 miles with air con on, an that nice 19 inch screen running through out the journey.
Be honest I am sad, we need more competition on the web, to keep up the innovation, hopefully Mayers can rebuild Yahoo in the next couple of years. Youtube must surely be turning a profit now for Google? As for Facebook, well poor little Zuck, sorry to say Facebook will probably continue to lose market share, Facebook is already saturated with ads, any more an it will start to turn off users, if it has not done already an with the prices company are paying for display ads, there not a lot of places for Zuck to expand his empire.
You can do anything you want with Android code, like the Russians and countless others have done, but OHA members are not allow to release hardware with that modified code on it.
However even their, Google may have limited that hardware clause to only phones an tablets, several OHA members have release hardware in other categories with modified version of Android an have not been threaten with expulsion from the OHA.
It seem to me that this is a case of aCER not reading the fine print of the membership forms they signed to join OHA. Google stamp on them so hard because they are a minor player and them going off sulking about it is of little threat to Google Android plans.
Re: "what appears, at a glance, to be clear abuse of market power."
Mostly correct, you just have to add that OHA members are not allow to support such OSes.
