And the point of that post is?
"Aussie Rules All-In Brawling"
Is that the one where they go to if they are to soft for post pub Sunday League matches?
Turn off Cortana.
Not hard was it.
You have a watch, that needs to be tethered to the to be of any use.
It can alert you to messages and phones, but so can the phone next to it. The screen is so small it's not a great medium to actually reply on.
As a sports tracker, it's just to bloody expensive to get smacked about and needs an expensive phone next to it.
So if I want to go for a run, play a sport, go swimming, somehow I have to lug £900 worth of fragile kit around, where you can pick up a good fitness tracker that does all that for almost a 1/10 of that.
you really have no idea what you are on about do you?
Getty "has 60 million images"
And a huge amount are just happy snapper shite.
...is the rise of 4G
My connection (I have a tower and exchange within 5 minute walking distance) and my phone connection blows my ADSL out of the water
My peak test was 86.7 down / 17.41 up.
That upload alone blows most home connections out of the water. Just same about the pricing.
I agree. I get about 15 - 18mbs and it streams iPlayer fine.
I see no need to go up to super-duper-hyper 200mbs for ONLY about another £25 a month. It's utterly, utterly pointless for me.
My parents had a crap, over priced old service from Virgin. Did they care? No. It was only because I found they could triple the speed, get a better box and more TV for half the price did they decide to move. Speed was not the deciding factor in this.
There is different kit and now it's easier to connect.
So, grsecurity make money (I presume) by pointing out holes in others security, but grsecurity don't like it when fellow security people point out flaws in grsecurity's security software.
So grsecurity react to a hole in grsecuritys software by banning anyone that mentions the issue in grsecurity's software?
Way to go grsecurity.
I may just pop over to twitter, mention the grsecurity issue and tag in @grsecurity, to get grsecuirty to ban me, although after this, something tells me I wouldn't trust grsecurity with my security.
Streisand effect anyone?
...as people keep banging on, all you need to do is to only download apps from the Play Store and run the latest OS supplied by your vendor.
I cant wait.
The Tagliatellians at war with the Spaghetti's, as the Spaghetti's don't believe that the claim of the Tagliatellians reduction of salt in the water doesn't affect the taste.
Then and only then will it be a true religion.
Or put another way, Android handset sales are falling.
Works both ways that one....
You're right, they prefer to bribe, sorry, lobby governments directly.
"input devices should be permanently attached and only removable by a technician. "
I take it you've missed this thing called a "Laptop". Pretty new, you must try one sometime.
Or they are hosted in Switzerland where the courts will tell them to polity f*** off.
"I won't even get into the concept of "bump keys"."
You do that and I won't go into the concept of Anti-bump and Anti-Snap locks....
The issue is not oh look Android is locked down.
The issue is not google search being dominant.
The issue is not being able to fork android.
The issue is, if a supplier wants to add Google Play, or YouTube App as examples, they HAVE to have search, hangouts and all the other bundled interdependent crap. Then because you have all the other crap, you are then locked into the eco-system, even if you don't want it.
"without the IT they had NO business at all."
Well if you exclude telephone sales or turning up at the gate.....you know like they did before online ticket sale.
So your saying they should have a dedicated web developer, a sys admin, a network engineer and a security expert (minimum)?
Add to that a server, UPS, generator, firewall,switch, a rack to put all this in, a comms room to put the rack in, oh lets not forget offsite back up + plus full DR redundant equipment.
Well, that's their entire budget gone for the year.
"In comparison Google have an ASOP version of Android that others such as Cyanogen use to provide their own version of Android without google included."
Of course, without the Google binary blob, many functions are utterly crippled. It's not like you can say. I want the Play store and nothing else, you have to have all the other bollocks they force you to have.
Tried uninstalling all the crud, but leave the bits you want?
It's internet explorer tie in, just delivered in a clever way to avoid this sort of investigation.
Holland -> ?
Holland is not a country, just an area of the Netherlands, bit like saying the country of Wales.
...if he has enough time to trawl through misdirected emails, he has one cushy job.
Compare my local butchers multi-award winning sausages (about a dozen Diamond and Gold awards so far) with a "premium" brand such as Walls (Pork content 61%)
Guess which is the least expensive.
Businesses are not covered by that, because the expectation is any contract you would have validated by a lawyer.
The Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 applies only to liability arising in the course of a business. It does not therefore provide comprehensive protection against unfair terms.
However, a consumer, you should really quote the:
Unfair Terms in Consumer Contract Regulations 1999, which actually come from an EU directive to extend consumer protection.
How will DNS help? NTP is not part of DNS.
This is probably what the trial is actually about.
Also it may be that the structure was unsound, unknown to BT and the Engineer, therefore BT may not believe they are liable, but the landlord.
I'd disagree, because when TALKING hands free, the other person "prompts" for an answer, jumps in, carries on talking when you need to concentrate
When it's a text, for me anyway, it's no difference to talking to yourself. It's easy to ignore it and mine cancels if you don't respond. It doesn't nag you for an answer.
...many cars these days can read and send texts hands free. So how does that work....
Over my car radio I get:
Phone: "Text from xyz, shall I read it or ignore it"
Me: Read it
Phone (text) "Hi can you pick up some milk on the way home". "Do you want to reply or have you finished"
Phone "Ok what do you want me to say"
Me "Sure, no problem"
Phone "Ok I'll send "Sure no problem" Do you want me to send it, start again or cancel"
Me "Send it"
Phone "Ok message sent"
That takes very little effort, it's easy to carry on checking mirrors, signalling, turning etc, all hands free.
Yet my phone will show me as texting.
So how does that work?
Sigh...how many times....
...both have comment sections full of racist, sexist, homophobic idiots who blame everyone else for their lack of achievement in life.
and Oculus can helpfully upload, process and store all the data for you as well.
...just choose who you want to send all you data to.
"Years ago I ceased being surprised at how much effort people will put into being lazy – or to be more precise – how much effort people will put into avoiding doing something themselves."
Computer User - Not Technical: Am I able to do this. Do I have the right permissions to do it?
Me: Have you tried?
Me: Well if you try and it doesn't work, come back to us.
CU-NT: Can you just check?
Me: <no response>
10 minutes later with nothing changed:
CU-NT: It's working now, thanks for your help.
Coupled with the tracking cookies and IP logs, they even know when and where you posted...
..is that ugly.
You missed the whole section about the fuel cell being for cruising only and the capacitors providing the thump.
"Nobody has ever asked me to check security of the code we've been writing for the last 30+ years,"
So good chance your software is full of holes then?
No, even better, don't buy their products again.
Money speaks far more than toothless regulators.
I'm divorced with kids, something tells, me both of yours are in a better state than mine.
"Money-shuttling firm "lost" 2.6 T£ of tax revenue and no-one even noticed"
Isn't having Liberty the ability to choose what you wish to do with your money?
Are you suggesting we remove this choice?
I think someone has got recycling and reusing mixed up....
...if they had hard-coded the admin password, then there would be no need to change the password in the first place.
"1. Was this disclosed to the extension authors with sufficient time for them to produce fixes? If not it's an irresponsible disclosure."
It's a black hat conference, so probably not.
"Block for all your kit in your DNS server. Done. Also for tablet."
Because everyone has a DNS server...FFS

"And the NSA adds in a footnote, whatever you do, don't use an iPhone - even the FBI can break into those."
