I've created an app....
...it puts an icon on the screen and when you push it, it does nothing, absolutely nothing.
reckon that's worth a few million these days.
...I switched to BT as soon as BScumB announced they were taking over O2. They really didn't need to say they would cut off O2 customers, so many jumped ship without any threats.
All I ask is his dad is not called a defendant....
"He said his son knows nothing about using computers "
Either he lives in a cave, his dad is utterly ignorant, or he is plain lying.
Wow, if only there was a way to find out the answers to above questions
"Chrome Remote Desktop" into say Google and look what appears.
".....a tool for converting any SWF file to one composed of only alphanumeric characters in order to abuse JSONP endpoints, making a victim perform arbitrary requests to the domain with the vulnerable endpoint and exfiltrate potentially sensitive data, not limited to JSONP responses, to an attacker-controlled site...."
I'll just pass that info on to my mum and dad so they are aware.
Re: The most popular "bundled" software..
Re: @Stuart Longland
These companies don't charge for the client, but they right royally fuck you over if you want to create content.
So no, they are providing nothing for free, the more "free" clients out there, the more demand for the software to create it with. Add a update to 20 million client = a need (read pay) for an update for the creation tools.
It's obvious innit
The GCHQ "patch" the other week buggered up the NSA's connection, so the NSA have had to update theirs on order to protect us.
Re: Cold war
Yup, the US has run out of justification for it's huge military budget and an election is on the horizon, so someone needs to be invaded, so why not the Germans.
How many liters (or gallons) of paint was that
Is that US measurements?
some modern "art" I actually want to see....instead of the usual wanting smash the "art" into the "atists" face....hmmmmm but in doing so, would that make me an artist in my own right?
Re: They did exist-
More like they did exist, but upon receiving this crud, hit the big red self destruct button.
Re: Thank goodness for that - XP rules
Then turn off auto-update.
You see that giant heading...
But not you, Windows XP. No Patch Tuesday for you
And the problem with driverless trains is?
Last time I looked, most train accidents are caused by drivers ignoring the red lights, failing to adhere to speed limits or failing to stop when they should. The other big cause is obstructions and again, a properly equipped automated system will be better at stopping in the vast majority of cases.
Let me put the reality back in....
"Yet with governments around the world increasingly keen on less-polluting energy sources..."
"Yet with governments around the world increasingly keen on being less reliant on the unstable regions of the world, where they have to use expensive military intervention in order to keep the expensive military machine running....."
...and my privacy settings keep putting my posts back to "public"... so I wonder if this is another "lets fuck with their minds" experiment.
No that's just simply turning you back into the advertising medium that you are.
Yes but I'm sure they read the big bold bit about storing credit card details and using it for in-app purchases. It not hard, it fills half the bloody screem
What law are they above?
Mummy and daddy click the "yes please store my credit card details and use them for app purchases"
Then hand over tablet, with saved details in them and are surprised that little kiddy clicks yes when they get the offer of an extra life?
My kids have their own tablet, no card details stored (the wifi is not even enabled) and when they run out of lives on Candy crush, Frozen or whatever, then that's it.
They accept it and it's a great way of limiting time on the device.
If they use my phone, again no details are stored.
Is that bloody hard to put in the details or a password each time you want to buy something? If you need to top up every 10 minutes, you either need to give up, or stop buying freemium games.
And I hope that....
...every hedge fund that lost money sues the ass off them.
Re: My frustration with 8.1 and opinion on such matters of why upgrade
I'm not sure why you are struggling with compatibility in Win 8....there are only a couple of programs that have caused me grief.
The big one is that PoS of a thing called Java, when you go to apps with self-signed certs and another is oddly another app that uses a macro in Excel.
Both of these can be got rid of fairly easy and may work for your programmes
Go to the .exe, create a new shortcut, then do a properties, advanced and set to always run as Admin with elevated privileges,
Copy this to the start menu folder and jobs a goods a good 'un. pin to start if you want. Run from here.
Oh turn off ActiveX filtering in i.e. if having problems with crap intranet pages as well.
Maybe it's because I've been dealing with badly written, cluster fuck of programmes for 20 years that I've learnt nearly every trick in the book.
Re: Quite simple really!
Get your coat now!
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: Reddit owned by a big company
Go back, reread....
BTW if you moderate the forums, you are responsible for content, if you don't you're not.
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.
Point of Order
...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.
