FBI director James Comey told the White Collar Crime Institute that recruitment was a nuisance as "some of those kids want to smoke weed on the way to the interview".

Moses told me to get one of these. His tablet was just too prohibitive
Triumph of form over content
High time fewer people were buying these hobbled netbooks, or at least just the probably miniscule few who actually have a genuine use case.
I.T. here. Can you show us your Support Level please?
Faster, faster, faster!
Your metaphor had me fooled. I was fantasizing about switching in SatNad instead of the gentleman in question and setting up 0wning the car's controls as a black hatters' convention challenge ...
"People won't use technology they don't trust," Smith said. "And so for us, it's an imperative as a company that we put trust at the core of technology."
Whoops ... too late
Criminals could hide communications in pre-arranged books. Better remove the books too...
Re: Not so easy
Do what i do: use a nano usb stick as a booter and install the bootloader to that - MBR untouched. AND it should automatically dual-boot Windows. Does on Debian anyway, and since it's probably a Grub 2 thing, it should on most Linuxes these days.
I expect to be only using Windows to run Outlook
Why do you need Outlook? Even if you do, why not take it on the chin and use the online version?
Re: Vanishing scrollbars - can't wait !
Surely they mean that they appear only if there's something more to see? Please tell me they don't mean that they will only appear on a mouse over ...
Kodi is a dedicated media environment is it not? I'm talking about generic touch desktops. I suspect there could be Gnome variants but i know nothing of them as they'd probably drive me nuts on a desktop.
So what kind of desktop environments are going to be able to support touch well on these screens?
You wouldn't believe how much time I have recovered by aborting YouTube videos the moment any ad shows up.
Yes, i take much the same approach with radio station Classic FM. Only a few minutes until the channel gets switched.
The Acer Revo Build modular PC
Good concept - bad presentation (looks messy). Though i guess that photo might not have originated from the Acer stable...
Law enforcement agencies help protect the public from malware
From CryptoLocker and Gameover ZeuS, through to Beebone and RAMNIT, collaboration between security companies and law enforcement agencies has proven vital to protecting the public from cybercrime.
Really? Citation (preferably with stats) please.
beating all 54 antivirus scanners, including the popular Virus Total online analysis machine
Surely the point of Virus Total is that it essentially IS 'all 54 antivirus scanners' or am I missing something?
Even cleverer if they had their man anyway and just installed the spyware to make it more likely that this high profile case would provide justification for continuing to install this sort of thing in the future.
Can you use an external usb keyboard with it? Would be great to use it as a terminal.
"Who wants to hear another Spacestar Ordering success story?"
Admittedly I don't have the upper body distraction she has
You might consider sticking with the female shoe version, and leave the designer stubble for added effect. That will provide a distraction of a different kind
Re: It is almost as if MS don't want the likes of us to use it
They've probably given up hope of the codebase (if such a coherent thing even exists) ever being able to be pulled around enough to be accpetable to the likes of us and have therefore decided to head in the obvious direction of the using their remaining consumer base as advertising cannon fodder and a captive marketing target. And of course, from the POV of MS, if we always seem to be pissing, we can just go and live in another tent so they can bid good riddance to us.
I don't see what the big deal is
You do realise you're giving them permission to increase your electricity bill, don't you? Whose cpu cycles do you think they're using to mine your data?
Damn, looks like I will have to study that list in case I am missing something.
That reminds me of Byron's Don Juan:
Juan was taught from out the best edition,
Expurgated by learned men, who place
Judiciously, from out the schoolboy's vision,
The grosser parts; but, fearful to deface
Too much their modest bard by this omission,
And pitying more his mutilated case,
They only add them all in an appendix,
Which saves, in fact, the trouble of an index.
'Graphene sheaths' - the ultimate in prophylactics?
Might that be because users of 'modern' devices either can't or don't know how to use the address bar?
Re: FOSS that you can rely on
The thing is, I hate shopping for networking equipment, so I don’t do it that many times more than I have to.
I don't either. Getting an ADSL router that's OpenWrt-capable seems even harder. I'm guessing it's to do with modem drivers being hard to get. I look every day on EBay for one with OpenWrt installed (I don't want to tinker and possibly brick) with USB so i can use it as a netbooter too.
Re: Hmmm I don't remember it on my laptop...
>>Much better than having to rifle through to say an Acer Aspire 5000<<
It's the kind of machine to which you might be tempted to take a rifle, but the word is 'riffle'
Trevor - you've got the job. We've decided that Peter Principle incompetence is the best spin we can get that sounds realistic. Report to Lenovo HQ immediately to learn the contents of the generous package you will be offered.
Too much white, too much black. Way too stark. Who told you that grey is bad?
ALL Android is pre-pwned - because it's not open. In what way is it pre-pwned? Well you don't know, do you?
What's the point of extolling the virtue of ClamTK to then say at the end of the write up " there’s no reason to have this on your system running in the background." ??
Well the reason will be that it's a Freudian slip. ClamAV must qualify as one of the lamest AV apps. I've tried it many times since there's no doubt it's potentially convenient to able to boot a Windows box into Linux and use Clam on it. When i've tried it with known malware (consensus among heavy hitters on virustotal.com) i think it's almost always thrown up false negatives. Use it at your peril
A very tight and scholarly essay
Don't think so (2FA == Two Factor Authentication)
He's probably already instructing minions to prepare for possible purchase of 2FA.
I meant purchase of LiveEnsure
Looks like a very good way of justifying the collection of personal data at a depth that would be orders of magnitude greater than that collected by the likes of Zuck and co. He's probably already instructing minions to prepare for possible purchase of 2FA.
Re: wtf is a boilerplate response?
How about something like "It's not that serious folks" ?
Re: Well lets name them....
The 'them' we need to name is actually Adobe (and often Java)
It's not 'ads' but their buggy bloatware that's to blame. Perhaps they should be footing the ransom bills as the price for maintaining a de facto monopoly on browser-based video?
Using Adobe Flash, the malvertisements silently “pull in” malicious exploits from the FlashPack Exploit Kit. The exploits attack a vulnerability in the end-users’ browser and install CryptoWall 2.0 on end-users’ computer
Re: VB for children?
And the same people who are stupid enough to lose it really can be trusted to encrypt it properly, can't they?
Re: Borland's OWL was a much sensible approach than MFC
OWL was a bit worse than Delphi's framework (don't remember the name right now)
That would be the Visual Component Library (VCL) perhaps?
It it just me or is the general tone of this article (despite details stated to the contrary) along the lines of "Meet Charles Petzold - the man who reverse-engineered the Windows API"?
Or even ...
Windows 1.0 had tiled windows and I had a paragraph in my first chapter explaining why tiled windows were better than overlapping windows.
"Charles Petzold vindicates Windows 8"
It makes sense when you consider that Cisco's most recent security audit report found that 91 per cent of all web-based exploits in 2013 took advantage of Java vulnerabilities.
Errr ... as long as the OS on which it's running is ... (fill in appropriately)
I for one would welcome comments from authors of plugins for said OS as to why they could be difficult to secure

Re: I'm sure they know what they're doing
Will you have to listen to an ad before your call is connected?
No need - they're NSA-funded
Researchers have not reverse [sic] Kronos to determine its capabilities.

>>If you're just talking about your toy computers at home...
Well _any_ machine running Windows is more or less of a toy IMO, but as it happens, i was talking about other people's (more) toylike domestic machines
Win rdp server support
Only XP Pro afaik
>>What's wrong with "rdesktop", with or without a GUI?
You must move in exalted circles. The vast majority of Windows OS installs don't support rdp-as-server
