Re: whats Chromium?
By special you mean all the phone home stuff installed?
This is NOTHING new
Networking and PBX gear has done this for DECADES. You buy a license and it unlocks the disabled features.
I guess you've never used freeware either?
Often, it's because it requires a license for a propriety bit of software, often it's just to screw you over.
This is NOTHING new.
Actually it shoud read
"We learn today that WE have NO DISASTER RECOVERY PLAN "
DDoS is not hacking. it's pushing a key to take control of a botnet.
If you want a good rant....
Neither are under EE's control.
Re: Billing issues.
It is now an offence for ANY customer services* in the UK to only offer 08 numbers. The are now legally required to offer either a geographic number or and 03 number.
* excludes helplines, for example fixing a pc fault, business to business communications and some others. It does not affect sales and pre-sales lines.
4 down votes for pointing out Google's core business model?
The Googlebots must have this site targeted....
Dyslexia....the word in itself is a test that you may have it.
Re: Are there any browser that just browse?
Not Chrome, Iron...
That's a new one...sounds like something was being battled behind closed doors.
Did you read the article? I think you are getting your intelligence agencies mixed up.

...that's what you want, it means that fit flush with any case you have.
...so much for always buying genuine parts as counterfeit goods are dangerous.
I've often bought 3rd party cables (not cheap 99p ones) and found them to be a lot better than the manufacturer shipped stuff.
Re: Re "which could potentially bypass missile defences"
Check out the DF-21D.
Reported speeds of Mach 10, so in theory, US could launch, China then can respond and hit the US target before the US hits them*
*range is *only* 1500km to 2700km dependant on who you believe.
Still at least she had more brains than "turn off all services" suggestions i.e. turn it into a £10 dumb phone.
It is a "proper" OS
"including a lack of research funds and too many developers pulling in different directions"
If that doesn't PROVE it's met most of the criteria for an IT project, I don't know what will. All it needs to be perfect is it to be is abandoned at the last minute and a new project to take over.
"Loss of unencrypted back-up disk costs UK prisons ministry £180K"
Let me fix
"Loss of unencrypted back-up disk costs tax payers £180K, in bureaucratic money laundering scheme."
The wrist computer market has grown by almost 700 per cent this year
Go to love those stats.
Does that mean they've sold 7 or 7 billion?
God I despise these "analysts"
Re: Booth babes
But isn't this part of the issue?
Why even bother to employ the booth babes in the 1st place? Surely it's just pandering to the "girls are to look good, boys are the ones you need to talk to" mentality.
Seriously if you can't sell your product without a 6ft blonde in hot pants, then look at your product.
IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NO EXCUSE!
You know the law (technically Acts of Parliament, but lets not be picky), all 73,000+ in Engalnd, so what's you excuse for not being ignorant?

Really, it's just the baddies are stupid.
Doctor, meet Mr Cricket bat.
Stupid bloody screwdriver not so good now is it!
ooo he's regenerating and 3....2....1...Thwack....get back down.
...don't like whats on Twitter / Social media?
Don't be such a needy attention whore, "close" the account and leave.
This goes for everyone, not just 'slebs.
My guess a standard server with the application installed. No difference than you saying it's a bunch of Citrix or VMWare servers.
Or watermark them if you are aiming to sell them.
Interesting Reg's stance on this.
In a previous article:
Note the blatant accreditation below the image and a protracted article about the poor little guy.
"Vulture Central's backroom gremlins haven't included the offending monkey shot. Why? Because we haven't got hold of Slater to ask permission to include his picture in this article. Simple courtesy."
Yet, now a US court (not a UK one) has said it's in the public domain ,here you are publishing it with seemingly no accreditation or even exif data (unless for some reason my pc is stripping it).
So c'mon Reg, make up your minds,
Re: VNC and RDP
VNC doesn't blank the active screen, require admin rights or require any user interaction. Hence we use it along side RDP.
Oh DameWare also uses VNC as default for Linux and Mac boxes as default, in fact they have to have VNC server running.
". My workplace does passwordless vnc too..
If there was a password, it woukd be post-it to the terminal where the session is displayed anyway."
Well, unless the "hacker" in eastern Europe has a bloody amazing pair of binoculars, don't think that would be an issue, certainly better than no password.
"password popups would be somewhat of a disruption to normal use."
What password pop ups? The one you use to connect with, but if you have to connect then it's no big deal, surely?
"Oh well, at least it's all behind NAT"
Would that be the one that VNC is punching a bloody great hole in? I'm just guessing as your security seems so piss poor, I guess your firewall rules are just Any/Any...just to make it a bit easier.
Re: why is anything in such an investigation "classified"?
Maybe because they were trying to gather information from military as well as civilian aviation authorities?
Re: If they did that in Brum
Beat me to it you sod!
Now if we could remove the f**king buses that seem to stop every 50m, then we could triple the speed.
Re: i call bs...
Typical, Linux user complaining they have to pay for something....
Re: Simpler solution than developing seek-and-destroy software
You have to pay Murcdoch and his cronies to see the content and there, my friend, is the difference.
All I can say is if footy fans are outraged at this, stop buying the Sun et al...please....pretty please.
It's all down to the stupid....

Don't blame the users, blame the stupid policies.
....now will it automatically block that spyware software being installed and set as default by loads of 3rd party software, you know, that Chrome browser thing?
They have something new and they can't be arsed, so want some quick cash (plus the 5000+ they have will most likely never get used)
Re: @NoneSuch Whatever the system.
"....And no, she's not a dude."
Well not since the op anyway...
..the Safe Habour is about a good a reflection on privacy as ISO9001 is for quality. So long as you tick the correct boxes yourself, all is ok.
Got it all wrong...
...should of phrased it...my room mate is missing and I think "Dave" may of killed them, where is the most likely place he would of dumped the body to avoid it being found.
Dear Microsoft / Oracle
Can you please sort out the utter cluster fuck that is Java / IE11 / Win8 please.
I should NOT have to run java applets with escalated admin privileges.
I'm just amazed...
....The Scum didn't get some 16 year old* to get her tits out whilst holding a tablet to illustrate the point, whilst on the next page telling us of some evil pedofile (sic) teacher has run off with a 16 year old girl.
*Sam Fox was 16 when she first appeared topless in The Sun.
I find this bit disturbing...
"He was arrested by the Feds in June 2011 and turned, partially under pressure of what would happen to his two adopted children."
What was the threat?
Re: Hope not.
Actually Not true. Even hands-free you can still be done for due care and attention if you are being distracted by the call..
Actually you are right to a degree, but found there is no need to go to this extreme.
Simply disconnect mobile data and hey presto those voice calls work much better.
It's often caused by the phone desperately trying to use 3g, even when the signal is congested (bars make no difference)
We can see this in action in out office all the time. in the day, it flaps between edge and 3g and 2g.
At night, same office, rock solid (and fast-ish) 3g.
So you may get the "signal", but using it is a waste of time.
Re: If you sign up to something...
I don't know, I went from being a skinny bloke to a hot curvy woman just by eating Special K...if only I could get this bloody swimsuit off.
How about a more realistic reason....
...We are banning tablets because the person behind paid a lot of money to see the match live and doesn't want to watch the entire game through your tablet while you film it, you self centred prick.
Fingerprints for school meals?
Facial recognition software with mass CCTV surveillance?
DNA testing and retention of kids and innocent people?
So personal screw the private companies, I can opt out of those. Sort your own bloody lot out 1st.
As a side note, I trust Tesco's with my data far more than the government or police.
Huwawei would be happy to supply this...
Re: Nice thing to have
you don't make many calls, don't use GP, bluetooth, mobile data or play Mp3's....
Begs the question, why did you by an expensive smart phone?
"Microsoft will not be able to use the Nokia brand anymore"
Unless you mean Microsoft are CHOOSING to drop the name, and so far only from the high end smartphones.
