you missed out Bebo and Google, those other great establishments of data hording.
Critical evidence, just lobbed in a drawer?
Do they do this for the odd kilo of crack cocaine?
A knife used in a murder case?
What else do they just lob in a drawer?
Evidence should be treated like a bar of gold, otherwise, shit like this happens, or even worse, the evidence is still there, but some smart arse lawyer gets the person off on a technicality.
Don't point at the Microsoft debacle as they DID respond, but Google went ahead anyway.
Chris Johns, chief engineer at Sky,...., opined during the day: “You can now buy a 1000 Nit Samsung TV on the high street, we have to catch up!”

yes, it really, really, REALLY hard to uninstall apps from Windows 8+. You find the icon you normally use to launch it, right click on it, and now the tricky bit....click on "Uninstall".
If using a touch screen, just to make it confusing, you have to press onthe icon and hold for a few seconds, move your finger a short distance and press on uninstall.
I know a little technical for many here, used to going into menu after menu, or running lines of code, but there you go.
Then right click, uninstall.
Pass the popcorn for Palestine.
An atheist with a Jewish heritage...this could be fun.
"Got a 100mb fibre connection. Haven't used a CD/DVD/Blue-ray in at least a year."
So a few hundred a year instead of about £50....sounds like a plan.
Not all of us live glued to the telly.
and the like of Iron?
The whole reason for these is to avoid Google, so become mute if you are forced to use a tracked Google account to get the stuff to stop you being tracked.
they are on their way already.
...do the BBC insist on promoting these companies and jumping in bed with them all the time?
I like the Beeb, but I think this constant sucking up to Facebook, twitter etc is just a step to far and should be reigned back in.
My point is saying that cattle are the issue, when Almonds (one of California's largest exports) use obscene amounts of water as well.
"...it takes about a gallon of water to grow one almond, and nearly five gallons to produce a walnut."
Now beef, does indeed use a lot as well, but simply to say go veggie is going to fix California issue is utter bollocks, when the largest user of water is not livestock.
Also, when I hear these arguments thrown around, that being veggie will fix everything, again is horse shit. A lot of land is completely unsuitable for crop growing on any scale, but ideally suited to sheep and goats.
Yes, we should cut down on meat use, that I agree on, but to simply say, going veggie will fix everything, is just wrong. Killing off the walnut and almond trade in California will have a MUCH bigger impact than killing of the livestock trade.
Just for those promote being a veggie to save water, enjoy those almonds !
Of course you researched California's agriculture before that posting?
Where did it go?
If cycling, don't try to get to the very front of a queue, hang 1 vehicle back, then you can see what is going on, and the driver, just may be able to see you.
If you're a car driver, don't try to go up the inside (right) of an artic at an island.
Both have a nasty habit of people getting squashed if you don't apply just a little common sense.
FFS I could have a nap in the back compared to some roads, UK country lanes, Paris main roads, Spanish side road and as for India, good luck with that chaos. The car will obediently stop at a red light and get plowed into in every direction possible.
Can they tell the difference between a good sized rock and a paper bag?
One needs drastically avoiding, the other does not.
Getting it wrong could result in a nasty injury.
Shill for Amazon, no. I made self adhesive paper in a factory (where incidentally I also had the skin ripped from 2 of my fingers).
Average temp was 30c in the Winter and about 40 - 45 in summer.
When you have a 6 inch gas main as the feed for the machine, to dry out the adhesive, it gives you a clue how much heat this thing kicked out....and as pointed out, blacksmiths, glass makers and foundry workers work even hotter temperatures.
Hot work, 12 hour shifts and mediocre wages.
But instead of whining and whinging I got of my arse and did something about it. Train myself up and took a 5k a year pay cut and got out.
OK so in one case (the heat), it was a one off incident, they called paramedic in, sent people home if they couldn't cool down.
That heat is not excessive. I used to do manual work in much higher temperatures. Now if they failed to provide water,or failed to call any medical help then there is an issue. Working in that heat, is not.
...the US had high temperatures (I've worked in hotter), Germany is arguing the toss over Union agreed rates and this is relevant how in the UK?
See my above comment, they would not be breaking any Ecuadorian laws, but they would break UK ones. The embassy is on UK soil and subject to UK laws.
Nope, it's a myth.
It's a UK building on UK soil where UK laws apply. The reason we don't just walk in is there is an understanding around the world that they are pseudo territories of the nation they represent and therefore exempt from local law enforcement.
The simple reason we don't go in, we would then have no moral high ground to complain when another country did the same and snatched our embassy staff for local law violations.
Think of it as a gentleman's agreement rather than law.
Please someone explain the down votes (the single one I get, always get at least one).
Please explain HOW it's Sweden's fault he is in an Embassy?
"Assange's legal team argued that his ongoing residence in London's Ecuadorian embassy is a disproportionate response to the investigation into his alleged crimes."
So leave !
"At the moment we're not number one for service. What we're doing [to fix this] is very real, these aren't just empty words," An EE spokesman told us at the time.
Uh hu....and how many times has EE broadband been in the bottom 5? Since pretty much they started as Orange broadband I would guess.
Hence you look at Non-Eu countries such as Switzerland.
What the hell are "near-shore" locations?
"One non-starter SNP policy involving technology is its vehement opposition to a new generation of Trident nuclear submarines based on the Clyde."
We really should look at relocating these anyway, as at some point it may happen that the do get enough power to prevent them, so should plan a new base now.
And as they are so opposed to it, they should also be completely removed from any bidding process to build anything, and I mean anything to do with it.
"If those sort of letters were sent every month by Asda to everyone who did not shop with them, it would be considered a pretty serious criminal offence"
Well if I was forced to pay Asda £170 a year, if I chose to shop there or not, but in return I had the ability to have entire contents of the store for free, I would have no issue,
See your comparison falls flat on it's arse.
"As I've never been to Africa and so have no relevant experience, I won't comment on that topic ...."
Are you new here? You are supposed to slag off / praise / comment on things you have no experience or knowledge of, it's the de facto standard here.
Do you work in the public sector, it's be coming for years. Many of ours dropped 2003 about 3 or 4 years ago.
"In about a month Server 2003 will receive its farewell set of patches and reach the end of its officially supported life."
"Windows Server 2003 support is ending July 14, 2015"
I make that 2 months.
...how Ironic he quits after a crushing defeat for Labour....I wonder if the outcome would have been the same if they had won?
Yes that seems to reared it's Fugly head again....it was in this one as well
and this one (although you need to get to page 2 for the repeat)
And to a bunch of part timers at that...
Plus don't forget you'll need repeaters, which themselves will add latency.
You nothing like this then?
Plea bargaining....the US justice system at it's best.
I also once heard on the internet, not sure when, that Aliens were caught tap dancing around Trafalgar square, naked with a bunch of pixies covered in baby oil.
Since then, I've never bought a pair of tap shoes.
But how can they patch when it's an unknown Vuln, by the looks of the article?
...she want me to move more and more to Protonmail
and yet for years the "right" have been complaing the BBC is to left wing.
The words people are looking for are "bad losers"
Eh? Take it your joking....there were 4 indy films.
My cheap as chips 535 has 70gb of "RAM", you see they have these things called microSD cards.
The 640 supports up 128gb cards.
Shhhhh, don't ruin the angry peoples fun.
From the article, it seems nothing to do with core Windows DLL's
talk about flamebait.
...jobs that show a good salary in the advert get the most eyeballs.
The ones where you need 600 qualifications, but don't mention a salary, usually mean they are going to pay bugger all and expect everything.
FFS, you moan that MS don't stick to standards. They make a standards complaint one from ground up and still fucking moan.
Still supporting Netscape? Stil supoprt Chrome v1?
One is being depreciated, one is being introduced, what is so hard about that?
And why "join" another OS source project? So we can have identical browsers, with all the same features and inevitably either result in fighting, stagnation or being forced to accept features you don't want.
