Re: Microsoft cooperative accelerated innovation racketeering ..
So the Apple, Google,Samsung et al way of deal with patents is better then?
Lets see, you can have some of ours, if we can have some of yours.
Or year after year, a few billion won here, a few billion lost there, millions in Lawyer fees and a huge drain on court time.
Still, if you think the latter one is the best, carry on.
Yup and if someone wants MS to stop shipping i.e. with their products, they just need to build a better OS.
Works both ways.
Yup, best to give to the Yanks to log and store, says our lot doing it...
Nice to see nothing has changed...
bad cop, now good cop.
Same tune, different fiddler.
...is the problem they are using PayPal Amercia as it's on Kickstarter?
If they switch to Paypal Europe, then it is a Luxembourg bank, governed by their laws, not the US's...
Let's clear it up...
"Our research revealed that out of all Dynamic DNS providers, No-IP domains are used 93 percent of the time for Bladabindi-Jenxcus infections, which are the most prevalent among the 245 different types of malware currently exploiting No-IP domains. "
Microsoft has seen more than 7.4 million Bladabindi-Jenxcus detections over the past 12 months, which doesn’t account for detections by other anti-virus providers. "
" Despite numerous reports by the security community on No-IP domain abuse, the company has not taken sufficient steps to correct"
Sorry, but No-IP are either a bunch of cowboys, or getting paid a shitload of cash...
Go on then, do it, if it's that fucking easy, go ahead.
Lets see you prove it in court with just some logs and no proof...
So lets get this right, you are complaining that Microsoft took down a bot net, i presume, becuase no one else could be arsed?
And read the article, they asked the owners to intervene, they couldn't be arsed / or possibly were in league with the crims.
So typical reg reader comments Microsoft = bad.
And as you may read, they had to PROVE in a COURT that it was distributing malware. Now if the law authorities got their arses into gear, then they could've done it, but instead, a private firm had to step in, at their own expense,.
The ultimate defence...
I actually said, I LOVE school and and it is da bomb", but Facebook changed it to "I HATE school and I'm going to bomb it"
Re: why is Marissa Mayer ...
because no one else wants it?
Re: More "management versus labor" mentality
"An employee knows the requirements of a job up-front, and traditional job requirements are that you work in the office or store or whatever."
I agree, so the flip side, the employer knows that the employees hours are say 9am - 5:30pm, therefore;
that need for evening work, that phone call at 7am in a panic, or the request for weekend work, because someone is sick, will be all be taken into account as they will have a dedicated team to fill in those slots...after all we wouldn't want the employee working outside what they signed up for would we?
Re: And that means...what exactly?
To be fair....
you have to bow to the commentards level.
Like if Adobe flash has an flaw, that means Windoze is full of holes (even when it's multi platform)
Re: Worthless conditionals
Don't give me wishy-washy possibilities: anything might do anything. Tell me what will or does happen - or stop wasting people's time.
Is it illegal, to drink and drive on a pavement whilst blindfolded? Not one person has clarified that particular point for me.
If you want to know then read the DPA. They can't cover 25 billion possibilities of what may happen.
...the Yam Yam's....and if it could translate into English for me, that would be great.

Re: Google gets permissions wrong again!
Yeah, because every bit of android software is legit?
Do you want "PostaPic" to access your email?
99.9999999999% will blindly choose yes.
Oh look here are your banking credentials, your website credentials and every bit of confidential information whizzing it's way to Russia or China.
"What surprises me in all this, that it's got equal coverage to all the really good stuff that was presented yesterday."
Yes, it's called balance.

...I'd like to refer you to the line.
"At least Blighty's entrant into the southwest London tennis competition stands a chance of winning – having prevailed last year."
Should the afore mention chap lose, then I expect, no, I demand, this to be amended to:
"At least Scotland's entrant into the southwest London tennis competition stands a chance of winning – having prevailed last year.
Where the hell were the automatic systems to detect fraud?
If I started pulling 10+k out of my account via ATM, I'd sure as hell would like them to suspend the payments, and as pointed out, is there no daily limit on these withdraws?
This just makes no sense, unless these banks are either incompetent or corrupt and in on the act.
That is all.

Re: Author retains copyright
Because unlike a major, they still "take" your music and "sell" it, even if you don't want them to. Something even the majors don't do.
The new Microsoft...who were the new IBM....who were the new Bell.....
As soon as a company gets to large, it thinks it can shit on everyone.
Time for Europe to step in a slap it down with a multi-billion euro fine....lets face it, the yanks won't.
We all mock at such a simple thing...
...but for those old enough to remember, I have one word.
Re: And in the mean time
So why are you typing on a IT forum instead of working to end the above?
Get yourself on TED and you'll realise happiness bears little relation to wealth. (check out the speeches by monks and you'll see why).
Now come here and have a hug.
Re: Try voice recognition over VOIP or Skyphone links
First thing I'd recommend is the organisation sack who ever can't implement VoIP properly. A proper system is BETTER than POTS.
Unless you are talking about a connection over a PoS link, when it shouldn't be used.
...exactly do you "pause" a messed up rollout? Surely that just leaves it paused as a messed up roll out?
Still I trust labour, they have a proven track record when it comes to IT roll outs....sorry, I had a funny turn then, my mistake.
A big fat pipe carrying all the traffic of the biggest data whore in the world? Talk about a gift horse.
Now get your head out your ass and grow up...
GCHQ certifies it is secure....
well that's Ok as those guys have been proven trustworthy when it come to keeping things private.
Re: No IBM?
Or more simply they already have a licensing deal...
That's because you are clearly over 25 and are no down with da kids...
Or just not stupid enough to hand over all your personal details to some random person on the web.
Re: re: NOT ALL programs use gpu properly
You are the only one that said it's an abbreviation, he never stated that it was.You also presume he is not "American", he has not stated his country of origin, it is something you have made up.
So loose the pedant icon and replace with a prejudice icon, it would be much more appropriate.
Claims mean nothing
"depending on speed, and a claimed maximum altitude of 3,000m."
I claim I'm the fastest runner in the world, oh and the best looking person, oh and I'm also 6000 years old.
Re: "Completeness of Vision"
It means they don't have a fucking clue what they are on about.However the equally clueless won't like to admit they don't have a clue either, so will start to use this phrase, in order to pretend they know what they are on about when talking to equally clueless people.
In short, manglement speak.
WTF is this crap?
Several cases of cheap ass loopy beer, some for you, others for the random's you meet.
Portable case stove
stuff to put in the above.
couple of changes of clothes
Toothbush and toothpaste
That's it I think!
When food goes off / runs out either a) sell your soul to buy some 2nd rate food from some cockney in a burger van, b) crash with someone else and exchange beer for food.or c) just don't eat for 2 days.

"....then the manufacturer will swap it out one way or another"
And after a year or two when the warranty has expired?
That old horse:
"therefore allegedly using its dominant position as a former state monopoly to squeeze out the competition."
NO, NO, NO.
There was NEVER ANY fibre broadband when it was a state monopoly, so STOP using that as an excuse for not putting your own infrastructure in. Be honest. Say "We can't be arsed to put our own in, so we need to piggy back off someone elses"
Re: No sympathy.
Daily Mail forums that way>>>>>>>
They are not asking for his conviction to be over turned, but mealy the police can't just rock up and ask for info and the ISP just happily hand it over. You give this over to freely and the potential for a cock up goes through the roof. And when you on about messing up and giving out the wrong information take these as an example of what happens when peoples primitive "what about the children" mentality takes over.
Re: Combo Upate
You mean some sort of service pack?
Well done Dutch Coward, maybe it's beacuse it Monday and they all have the grumps, but you single handily proved the stereotype of Linux nerds having no sense of humour.
I nearly spat my coffee out, yes I'm a Windows user (well I have an do have Android phone and use a PI for digital signage, have Linux box hosting my website, but I digress), and if it had been directed at Windows users, my reaction would of still been the same.
Got to love the law....
...no better in the UK.
So you have 2 options:
1. Help him get treatment and hopefully prevent re-offending. Cost couple of thousand pounds.
2. Throw him in jail, most likely lead to further mental issues, re-offending, jail, re-offending, jail and so on and so on. Cost, many 10's of thousands of pounds.
Still better to slash money to things designed to stop offending and instead build more jails and pack them in tighter. The reason? Easier for the accounts to prove how many people are locked up instead of how many people you stopped getting locked up.
Gotta love this fucked up world.

err no, nothing obscure, it was fully published on the web. Default admin password as crap, not matter what security model
Re: "More from wikipedia than shame"
Cookies are good remember? They are there to help you get the ad's that you want!
I help my local community.
I help run a local charity (unpaid) which helps out all manner of people.
Therefore I've decided because of this, I now longer will be paying any tax.
Re: Nice Traffic System You've Got Here...
I don't know about London, but certainly in the Midland, nearly every private hire company has to licensed by the local authority, have special "MOT's" and have CRB checks.
And as for the knowledge, in my experience, that involves going "ooo he has a Midlands accent", i can fuck him over, not realising I know my way around quite well.
And why is it impossible I can't get a cab to go 2 miles out of the centre, yet I can easily get a cab in the Midlands that would happily go via 4 towns and complete a 40 mile trip. yes done it many, many times.
So screw the knowledge and change to the times, say to the 1990's would be a start.
The word we are looking for is Luddite.

FTP? Security? Really?
And as for stripping out www to keep you secure,I guess by that comment you class Facebook as a safe connection then?
