Re: FFS (TM)
And I guess at 16 1/2 you must be far smarter than the 16 year old marketing person.
Read the f'ing article and not the link bait heading; they are not trying to trademark "Mod" but "Microsoft Mod" and "Microsoft Office Mod", the latter two, I'd say are pretty unique.
"Enter your email or snapchat username to see if you have been a victim of this and other data breaches (Adobe, Yahoo!, Sony, etc)"
Yeah right......enter valid details on an unknown website, that sounds like a clever plan!

Re: Skype for linux?
"As for Skype, well, it's a mess"
Well guess what, you'll find that nearly every on-line provider "reads" the logs and posts. It's how a lot detect spam, if you have an email coming from 10,000 locations, without "reading" the mail, how do you detect those 10,000 mail's are the same.
And here is some news....MS BOUGHT the product, just as Apple could of done, Google could of done, even you at home could of done if you had the cash. Now this MAY come as a surprise, but if it costs more in time and effort, or doesn't fit in with with how they want the product ultimately to perform, they will dump the platform. It called business. The hallowed Google, blessed be thy name, are guilty of the same practises, as are most other companies.
Any business that buys a product for a stupid amount of money, then doesn't try to get a return on investment won't be around for long. Like it or not Linux is a VERY small percentage of the desktop / laptop platform (Skype works fine on my Android), so doesn't make much sense, especially when you are aiming to integrate with Office / Lync, which will bring you in a lot of money.
...I've got way more than that on my hard drive and they cost nothing....Hold on, some idiot's banging on my front door asking me to open up...BRB.

Sorry thought you were joking for a minute then, you're being serious.
Re: "account running the ftp daemon"
Is this A/C actually Eadon?
It's a clever plan, pretend to be such a rabid Windows fanbouy, that it makes all windows users look like dickheads, therefore making Linux users, by default look cool and rebellious.
In reality, most of us that have finished puberty, realised a long time ago, you use what you are happy with and accept all OS's / kernels / software has flaws.
99/100 is users that are the biggest issue, not the software.
It's this thing called investigative journalism, a bit like where you buy drugs off drug dealer then pretend to want bigger, to find out who supplied him.
It's murky, but sometimes lines have to be crossed for the better good.
still if you prefer you news to consist of this weeks talentless bimbo spouting her opinions on twitter, feel free.
Re: If it's not broke...
Solaris? It's an FTP site, last I head you don't need 24 core, 8 processor systems with 8TB of RAM. I'm more surprised to find it's not an NT4 system, the one that no one knows exactly what it does, but dare not turn it off.
you forgot the "it's what my company supplied, so I don't have a choice" method.
Re: OOh lets dangle the maps
"Meh, Google offer better maps than Apple and Nokia?"
I use it from time to time and I'm currently using it to get to a single destination. Not because I don't know the way after 4 attempts, but because I love the way it sends me on a different route each time, often enjoying the small back lanes instead of the direct empty A-roads. 4 times, same start, same destination, 4 different routes (none of them the best).
Don't even start me on the time when I made the fatal error of leaving the M25 because of a roadblock and it cheerfully sent me on a 40 mile diversion to the same junction I just got off!.
It's OK is how I'd rate it, nothing more, just OK.
Think there may be a bit of self / cause publicity going on without thinking the facts through.
The conspiracy was that he was killed because he was a homosexual and open to blackmail.
Well as Man + plus dog knew he was homosexual, being convicted in a public court of the offence, it kind of neutralises the blackmail aspect.
Bit like saying, I'm going to expose Frankie Frazer of beating people up.

It's Happy Christmas! Not Happy Holidays, may I kindly remind you we are not the USofA who pretend that State and Religion are separate and spout this nonsense.
And before people think I'm from the Daily Mail. I'm an atheist but still like Christmas, Eid, Diwali and any other excuse for a nice time with other people. Just say what it is and stop being so bloody PC.
Re: Not suprised.
Laptop arrive faulty. Use distance selling act + Sales of goods act, far more aggressive and brutal than any other method.
Simply say that I wish to reject the item as it's faulty.
Don't take any crap of them. Tell them if they refuse to honour this you will have no choice but to take them to court. Also use the new weapon of choice and tear them apart on social media.factually though, don't make things up as that leaves you wide open.
No if's, no buts, no nothing. End of.
It's only because in this country we have accepted shit service for so long do we get it.
Re: Well when you can't nick others R&D...
Yup, my friend has had a pebble since pretty much when it was released. Not seen it much since, he tends to prefer the one he can, well you know, quickly tell the time with.
Or even those small software houses writing custom code, that may be their annual profit, for a bug that may only affect a few people.
And where doe the money come from? The customer. Who else.
Much better than these DNS crap things. Locks Safe search on.
As for those that say never leave your kids unattended, take it you do the same in kitchen? Or how about near stairs? What about he garden?
Do you leave the kettle on the floor boiling away, or is it on a nice short lead on the work surface (look into the history of kettle leads to see why that changed).
Think as filtering a safeguard a bit like putting the worst of the content on the top shelf. The determined will find a way, but it stops much of the accidental problems.
"that could check for blood sugar levels the device would be a massive hit with Fat people."
No it wouldn't.
It's society's fault / availability of junk food / lack of labelling / big bones / bad genes.
Never the fact they eat to much and move to little.
Turkish: Yeah, that's perfectly clear, Mickey. Yeah... just give me one minute to confer with my colleague.

Re: "a decent upgrade for Fedora fans"
Nah, surely it's supported for 12+ years, just like Windows XP, isn't it?
you forgot you have to leave any notion of style and dress sense at home.
I agree it's pastime, not a sport, along with snooker, darts and anything else you can have a fag and a pint whilst participating in.
i.e. if you don't get out of breath, it ain't a sport.
Re: Wait.. What?
10p for the 1st 500.
Unlike most companies these days, they most likely gave you a discount for being an early tester. Not the usual US version of "fuck you over for a premium for being 1st, fix the mountain of bugs and missing features, then slash the costs" mentality.

Re: Coming to their senses?
What 20 - 30 year old app are you running on a 32 bit machine?
To spend 10½ hours a day picking items off the shelves...
So the journo is happy at the 12 hours a security guard does keeping his office safe?
Or how about the person packing the same item into a box, day after day?
or they postman that delivers the same little packages, often in lousy conditions, day in day out?
The person that put the manual in the glovebox of a new car, day in, day out?
Some jobs are shit, but they do have a choice, they can leave and do some other shitty (and often much worse jobs), or have no money. Or they can go to night school, learn a trade and move up the world in the job stakes. Plenty of choices, some shit, some good, but just because some writer thinks anything more demanding than lifting a latte in Starbucks is to demanding (another shitty job), maybe they should the real world.
BTW speaking from experience, I used to do 12 hours in a label making plant, often getting covered head to toe in glue and paper. But I retrained in my own time, worked hard and got the fuck out of there, incidentally for a lower paid job, but which I knew had better prospects.

Re: US state department funding?
Err and you think this is not being used as a means to spy on them by the US?
That is about a naive as thinking a huge amount of proxies are not run by government agencies.
Ooo I need to patent something....
A device that when told to do something, or decides to do something itself, on a scheduled or non-scheduled basis, makes another component or components, which may or may not be separate or may or may not be integrated within device or another component of the system. It may or may not need electricity or mechanical input to function, but may or may not also be powered by an unspecified action.
There that should do the trick.
Of course they haven't hit back....
...they are calibrating their defence shields; every strike allows them increase it's effectiveness.

How do you know it doesn't have malware if you have no A/V?
Re: If it's such an offence. Then why hasn't Peaches Geldof been arrested?
Because it's with the CPS and they will then decide. If there is no risk to the public, you don't have to race round and go kicking in doors.
Re: All tech specs and religious tendencies aside...
"The first gen device was the Atari 2600"
Actually that was classed as 2nd gen....most [people state the Magnavox Odyssey a few years before was 1st gen home console.
Re: All tech specs and religious tendencies aside...
If you think that, then you are more gullible than most.
Re: so everyone will get to pay then
" if someone loses their phone there will not be much incentive to call in to report it stolen,"
Customer: Hello, I'm not paying the bill, my phone stolen!
Operator; Can I have the crime reference number?
Customer; Oh shit. Err no honest it was.
Carrier. Oh we believe and so we are disabling your SIM and bricking your phone. Enjoy.
Customer: Huh, my phones just gone dead?
What a stupid statement

You need an least a capital in there, so I think you'll find it's Password123 and maybe if it's really "complex".
Dear Google Search Engine.....
can you tell me about Margaret Hodge's tax avoidance and expenses scandals please?
What's that, suggestion? Do I mean "Hypocrisy"?
Would that be the one that spams you with featured ad's instead of a 404 for mistyped URL's?
The one when I was checking a content filter I proved utterly useless after 30 seconds (image searches resulted in about a 75% "success" rate)
